Pete Prisco of CBS Sportsline put out his top 50 players in the NFL. The Chiefs' Larry Johnson and Tony G are the only two KC guys on the list.

20. Larry Johnson, RB, Kansas City: For the second consecutive year, he put up huge numbers. He's a big-play threat every time he touches it.

The only other running back before LJ is LaDainian Tomlinson, which I'm just fine with. One issue I have is putting Texan's WR Andre Johnson at no. 14. While he did having 103 receptions last year now that I've actually checked him out, I think most fans would not choose a one year wonder (so far) receiver over a powerhouse running back.

TG barely squeaks in.

46. Tony Gonzalez, TE, Kansas City Chiefs: Even though he's getting up in the years he is still a force in the middle of the field. He's happy now, too, since he received a new contract from the team.
Antonio Gates is the only other TE above Tony G and Gates is at an appropriate no. 23. Now that I think about it, our intra-divisional foes really have us beat in the skill positions.
