This makes them the most valuable team in the AFC West. The Kansas City Chiefs check in at No. 18 with a value of $986 million; the San Diego Chargers at No. 23 ($920 million); and the Oakland Raiders at No. 31 ($761 million). Both the Chiefs (two percent) and the Chargers (one percent) saw an increase in their one-year value change, but the Raiders joined the Broncos in staying the same.
