This weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the Arizona Cardinals.
Both teams will have plenty of offense so they won’t have to use every tool at their disposal. The Cardinals will be without DeAndre Hopkins, their star wide receiver, for the first six weeks.
Chiefs traded Tyreek Hill, but acquired veteran wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster through free agency. JuJu seems ready to go after undergoing treatment for a knee injury during camp.
“Knee is great. Just a couple of minor issues,” Smith-Schuster said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. “It’s fully healed.”

Smith-Schuster will be a key part of the Chiefs’ offense in the 2022 season. After Hill’s trade, the Chiefs have a viable option in Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdescantling, who are both free agents.
Star tight end Travis Kelce will also be heavily targeted in this season’s campaign.
