The Kansas City Chiefs were on the road coming up short in defeat to the Baltimore Ravens, 36-35, in Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season.

The Chiefs relinquished their lead in the fourth quarter and squandered a late opportunity to take the lead in Baltimore. Here’s a look at how the stock is trending for some players after Week 2.

The hot streak continues for tight end Travis Kelce as he was a dominant force throughout the game. Kelce hauled in seven catches for 109 yards and a touchdown. The essential play for Kelce was during the third quarter as he linked up with Patrick Mahomes on a 46-yard defense bruising touchdown extending the Chiefs lead to 35-24.

Stock Up: S Tyrann Mathieu

The Chiefs were more than excited to get one of their defensive leaders back this week with the return of Mathieu. He immediately delivered with a pick-six of Lamar Jackson during the Ravens opening drive. The All-Pro safety would follow up with another interception in the first half and finishing the game with six tackles.

Jones has traditionally excelled in the middle of the defensive line throughout his career but struggled in his role on Sunday. The All-Pro pass rusher was ineffective at both the tackle and defensive end position, only accounting for a single tackle on Sunday. The most notable miscues stood out regarding coverage of Lamar Jackson’s rushing success to seal the game.

Stock Down: RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire

Edwards-Helaire hasn't gotten off to the explosive start fans remember from a year ago during his rookie season. The Chiefs starting running back had 13 carries for 46 yards, but his late-game mistake led to his inclusion on this list. Edwards-Helaire couldn't secure the ball during a crucial comeback drive fumbling away the Chiefs’ chances at a game-winning drive.
