KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs aren't into winning beauty pageants. They don't care about putting up big numbers on offense or polishing off shiny, lopsided victories.Ugly works just as well.It's a good thing, because the Chiefs haven't had a breezy win for weeks. Instead, they've relied on a blue-collar, throwback-style defense that's...

No matter how well this team may look for small portions of a game, they just don’t have the mentality to beat a quality opponent in the NFL. Look for the Chiefs to continue to rebuild during the offseason through free agency and the draft.

GALLERY: Top of Utah Twenty: 20 sleepers that could win your fantasy football league

20.  Jacquizz Rodgers (Atlanta) – RB
Jacquizz Rodgers is a player that I am really high on coming into the start of the 2012 season. He is a power back with the speed to break out in the open field. The only thing holding him back is Atlanta’s starter Michael Turner. 
After Matt Ryan’s struggles near the end of last season, I would look for Atlanta to have Rodgers play more of a crucial role in 2012 in order to rest Turner for the playoffs.

We are already a week into the fantasy season and you may be a little down on your team after a slow start. Maybe you’re feeling a little like the Giants or Packers? But not all is lost. Maybe all your team is looking for is that one stud that comes out of nowhere (see Victor Cruz, 2011), or maybe your team is just lacking some extra depth? Here are my top 20 under the radar players that could turn your team around this year and possibly win you that title. (MOVE CURSOR OVER PHOTO FOR INFORMATION) * Indicates updated information from week one of a player’s injury status heading into this week’s matchup.
