Dexter McCluster | RB | Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster is lining up everywhere eligible for a receiver in training camp. He has delivered some big plays. 'One million, five hundred and thirty-six ways that I can get the football,' McCluster said of his role in the Chiefs' offense. 'This offense is wide-open. You get opportunities everywhere. It's a fun offense.'
Huddle Up: We've heard this song before, and it doesn't have a great hook. McCluster is not worth much more than a late-round flier in deep leagues, but he could prove valuable if he finally delivers on that Swiss army knife promise. We'll believe it when we see it.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster said he is looking forward to playing in head coach Andy Reid's offensive scheme because he will be used at different positions. 'Keeping the defense on their toes,' McCluster said. 'Move me around, make a headache for the defense. He said he wants to use me in multiple places. That's the type of player I am and that's the type of player I've been. Now I have the opportunity to showcase what I can really do.'
Huddle Up: McCluster was definitely more of a receiver last season with Jamaal Charles' return, getting only 12 rushing attempts after having 114 a year earlier. McCluster did catch a career-high 52 passes for 452 yards, and look for that to continue as RBs always see plenty of targets in Reid's offenses.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said he has plans on how to use WR Dexter McCluster next season. 'I like McCluster,' Reid said. 'I think he's a good football player and he has a role on this football team. I've got some things in mind for him.'
Huddle Up: Reid was toying with the idea of drafting McCluster in 2010 before the Chiefs swooped him up in the second round. The cat-quick back is coming off back-to-back seasons with career highs in rushing (516 yards in 2011) and receiving (452 this past season), and it's entirely possible he could approach both figures in 2013.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster could have a bigger role in the offense under head coach Andy Reid because of his versatility. The Philadelphia Eagles were very interested in McCluster during the 2010 NFL Draft when Reid was the Eagles head coach.
Huddle Up: Any pass-catching back is going to thrive under Reid, and McCluster certainly fills the bill after finishing second on the Chiefs this past season with 52 receptions for 452 yards. One big qualifier, however: Jamaal Charles can also catch the ball, and he remains the No. 1 RB, bar none, in K.C.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster (illness) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.
Huddle Up: A Friday illness doesn't sound too dire, but check back with The Huddle's Game Day Inactives, Injuries and Weather report before kickoff Sunday.
