    Chiefs' Jason Avant: Heads into free agency following slow season

    Avant finished the 2015 season with just 15 catches for 119 yards on 24 targets. The veteran wideout struggled to find the field consistently, and averaged less than a grab per game as a result. He signed just one-year contract with the Chiefs before the 2015 campaign, and could be a candidate for retirement in the offseason if he can't find work elsewhere.

    Chiefs' Jason Avant: Two grabs Sunday

    Wilson caught both of the two passes thrown his way Sunday for 26 yards against the Chargers. Avant continues to work in a limited role, but did see 34 snaps to rank third among receivers Sunday. He'll face a decent matchup next Sunday against a Bills team allowing 251.9 passing yards per game, but doesn't present a reliable option given the usual offensive gameplan.

    Chiefs' Jason Avant: Limited action Sunday

    Avant saw limited action in Sunday's game against the Steelers, collecting two passes for 11 yards. Avant hauled in both of his targets on the day, but saw limited action despite being the Chiefs third option at receiver in the absence of Jeremy Maclin (concussion). He'll likely continue to see the field in a limited fashion, but won't see enough volume to be worthy of fantasy consideration in most formats.

    Chiefs WR Jason Avant has biggest output of season in Week 4 loss

    Chiefs wide receiver Jason Avant caught four passes for 43 yards in Sunday's game against the Bengals. Avant's four grabs and 43 yards marks his highest output through the first four weeks this season. Regardless, he's still just totaled 51 yards on six catches this season, and remains on the periphery of the Chiefs' offensive plans.

    Chiefs WR Jason Avant targeted four times in Monday defeat

    Chiefs receiver Jason Avant caught just two passes for eight yards in the defeat to Green Bay on Monday night. The veteran was targeted four times. The fact that the Chiefs were behind the entire second half likely played into his boosted playing time, however, so he'll likely continue seeing limited action, with a ceiling near the 38 snaps (54 percent) he saw against the Packers.

    Chiefs WR Jason Avant played just nine snaps in Week 2

    Chiefs wide receiver Jason Avant (hip) played just nine snaps in Thursday's game against the Broncos. Avant has been listed on the injury report with a hip issue, but his full participation in practice this week likely indicates that's not the reason he's barely playing. The Chiefs tend to employ many heavy sets with multiple tight ends, and the Chiefs seem set to give De'Anthony Thomas more snaps. Both of theses factors will likely limit Avant's playing time on Sundays.

    Chiefs' Maclin among a long list of players probable for Week 2

    Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (back) is among the 14 players the Chiefs list as probable for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. The same applies to fellow wideouts Albert Wilson, De'Anthony Thomas and Jason Avant. Maclin is looking to build off a Week 1 effort in which he caught 5-of-9 targets for 52 yards in the Chiefs' 27-20 win over the Texans.

    Chiefs re-sign Jason Avant, Richard Gordon and Kelcie McCray

    The Chiefs are bringing back three players from the 2014 team. On Friday, the organization announced that they have re-signed receiver Jason Avant, tight end Richard Gordon and safety Kelcie McCray. Avant was picked up by the Chiefs during the 2014 season after the Panthers released him during the season. With both teams, Avant accounted for 353 yards and a touchdown. Gordon spent time with both the Titans and the Chiefs last season and did not record any offensive stats. McCray played in all 16 games for the Chiefs a year ago and recorded 11 tackles.

    Chiefs receivers held without a touchdown yet again in 20-12 loss

    Chiefs wide receivers were kept out of the end zone for the 16th straight week in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. Dwayne Bowe had six catches for 57 yards and Jason Avant had four for 37 yards. Running backs De'Anthony Thomas and Jamaal Charles had 11 catches for 95 yards as well. The Chiefs have still not had a receiving touchdown since Week 15 of the 2013 season. They will have a chance to break the streak in Week 17 against the Chargers.
