Chiefs stock watch: Which players impressed during Week 4 vs. Buccaneers

The Kansas City Chiefs bounced back with an impressive road win in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Chiefs handled the Bucs all game while holding off a late-game rally to secure a 41-31 victory.  Several playmakers shined, but a few were quite disappointing even in victory.

Here’s a look at how the stock is trending for some players after the Week 4 wins in Tampa Bay.

Stock Up: Travis Kelce

Kelce adds another dominating performance to his future Hall of Fame resume. He served as the primary target throughout the game, finding different ways to get open when Mahomes scrambled to extend plays. Kelce ended Sunday’s game with nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown.

Stock Up: Joe Thuney

Thuney was signed in 2021 to be the veteran offensive lineman for the Chiefs revamped unit. He reminded the world of his value on Sunday, along with the rest of the line seeking retribution for all the criticism. Thuney’s leadership and skill helped open up holes for big running performances from Edwards-Helaire and Pacheco. He also bought time in the pocket for Mahomes.

Stock Up: L'Jarius Sneed

The performances from Sneed to start the season are sparking Pro Bowl talk as he’s raised his game to another level. The added aspect to his coverage on defense is his ability to rush the quarterback, which landed him another sack on Sunday night. He finished with the most tackles on the team and the strip sack in the victory.

Stock Up: Clyde Edwards-Helaire

Edwards-Helaire was a steady force on the ground, taking advantage of the great holes opened by the offensive line. He was the recipient of a touchdown pass late in the first half, but his rushing beat down the Buccaneers’ front line. The Chiefs starting running back finished with 19 carries for 92 yards and a rushing touchdown.

Stock Up: Isiah Pacheco

Pacheco was the perfect complimentary support in the backfield for Edwards-Helaire. He also contributed significantly to the kick return game as he became a headache for Buccaneers’ tacklers. Pacheco rushed for 63 yards on 11 carries and averaged 30.3 yards during his three kick returns on special teams

Stock Down: Rashad Fenton

Fenton was picked on early and often by Tom Brady with multiple shots to Mike Evans whenever he was in single coverage. Fenton appeared outmatched and was exposed in a play where he couldn’t grab hold of Brady for a possible drive-ending sack.
