2. Kansas City Chiefs

Aaron Jones in an Andy Reid offense would be unfair.

The Kansas City Chiefs will always be a pass-first team while Patrick Mahomes is the quarterback, especially when he can throw to Travis Kelce, but an improved run game could make them unstoppable in the AFC.

Kansas City's offense hasn't been at its dominant best this season. The Chiefs have scored 20 or fewer points in three of six games. That's the same number as all of last year. The only time they scored 30 points was against the Chicago Bears, and let's face it, anyone can do that.

The Chiefs can run the ball. Isiah Pacheco is averaging 4.4 yards per carry and 64.5 yards per game. But Jones would take this offense to another level.

His running style would perfectly complement Pacheco in the backfield, and Jones offers so much as a receiver. Getting Mahomes another consistent pass catcher would make a massive difference for Kansas City's offense. Chiefs receivers not named Travis Kelce have had their ups and downs this season.

The Chiefs aren't afraid to trade premium picks for star players. In 2021, they traded multiple picks, including a first-rounder, for tackle Orlando Brown. In 2019, Kansas City sent a first, third, and future second to the Seattle Seahawks for Frank Clark.

Andy Reid would find so many ways to get the ball to Aaron Jones, which would be bad news for the Chiefs' opponents in the playoffs.
