Kemp finished out the 2021 regular season with two catches for 24 yards on five targets.
Analysis: Kemp only played 72 offensive snaps all season compared to 311 on special teams. He's still buried on the depth chart heading into the playoffs and doesn't figure to contribute unless things get bad in terms of wide receiver absences. Kemp will be a restricted free agent in the offseason, so there is a decent chance he will be back in Kansas City next year.

Kemp was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star reports.
Analysis: Kemp will need to clear the league's COVID-19 protocols quickly in order to suit up Sunday against the Cowboys. If he misses game action, Kemp's absence will be felt on special teams, but the offense won't miss a beat, as he's registered just two catches all season.

Analysis: Kemp played 19 special-teams snaps along with 12 offensive snaps for the Chiefs' high-powered attack, though he was unable to make any notable contributions on the stat sheet.

Analysis: Kemp was elevated for last week's blowout win over the Chiefs and recorded an 11-yard reception on his lone target. Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is still out of the lineup, and since Sunday's game against the Jets could out of hand quickly, Kemp may garner some garbage time reps.
