This isn't an attack on Breaston -- he's a fine player -- but the Chiefs for whatever reason simply do not use him anymore. It's weird. Last week he had six snaps against the Ravens. This week that number actually dropped -- four snaps against the Bucs.
What the heck is going on here? Why is Breaston, who signed a multi-year deal last year, sitting on the bench? Here is his percentage of snaps this season compared to Jon Baldwin (Breaston on the left).
Week 1: 50 / 32
Week 2: 55 / 52
Week 3: 50 / 63
Week 4: 19 / 75
Week 5: 8 / 76
Week 6: 6 / 61
I don't understand it and it doesn't seem anyone else does either.
