Chiefs led NFL in offensive turnover from 2014 to 2015

ESPN Stats & Information has put together some interesting information on how many player snaps each NFL team returns at each position group from 2014 to 2015. You might be happy to know the Kansas City Chiefs, with a balky offense that kept them out of the playoffs, return just 57 percent of their offensive snaps from last year, the lowest percentage in the league.

The Chiefs had heavy turnover at wide receiver, where they lost Dwayne Bowe, Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins, among others. They return 51 percent of their wide receiver snaps, the NFL's second-lowest percentage behind the Miami Dolphins.

The Chiefs also went through some upheaval on the offensive line, where Rodney Hudson, Ryan Harris and Mike McGlynn have moved on. Only 45 percent of the offensive line snaps return, second lowest to the St. Louis Rams.

Anthony Fasano's tight end snaps are gone, so the Chiefs retain just 46 percent of their snaps there. That's the fourth-lowest percentage in the league.

These numbers are balanced by quarterback, where 100 percent of the snaps returns, and running back at 97 percent.

On defense, the Chiefs return 85 percent of their snaps on the defensive line, 97 percent at linebacker and 83 percent in the secondary. The defense as a whole returns 88 percent of the snaps, fourth highest in the league.

Overall, the Chiefs retained 73 percent of their total snaps, the ninth-lowest total in the league.
