Monday Night Preview:
Kansas City Chiefs @ Buffalo Bills
Vegas Odds: KC -5, O/U 57
This duel is either a fantasy dream or a dream fantasy. Or both I suppose. Patrick Mahomes is our FantasyHolic’s expert ranked #1 QB for the week, while Josh Allen is QB #4. These guys are both trying to bounce back after their first losses of the season, and I expect them both to shine. They are each legitimate MVP candidates for both the league and fantasy purpose. Enjoy the show!
Clyde Edwards-Helaire’s value is about to take a sizable hit with the signing of LeVeon Bell. For this week CEH is our #7 RB. Savor his last week of backfield dominance. I expect him to continue to be useful but as more of a RB2/3 instead of his recent RB1/2 status. The Bills Zack Moss returns to make this backfield complicated as well. For now Devin Singletary is RB #20 and Moss is outside our top 30. Singletary has done a solid job the past few weeks, but remains a low upside option now that Moss is in the picture. Moss is both a bigger better goal line back and similarly skilled pass catcher. He’s not a horrible play if you’ve got nobody else to use.
Tyreek Hill checks in as our #4 overall WR. He has been mostly uncoverable per usual, although I feel he’s due for a random quiet game in the near future. Regardless you can’t ever bench him so keep riding The Cheetah. While his teammate Sammy Watkins is out with injury both Mecole Hardman (our #38 WR) and Demarcus Robinson are in the WR3 conversation. Play Hardman for the upside but don’t be afraid to take Robinson for a spin if you’re desperate. For the Bills Stefan Diggs is our #7 WR and coming off his season high in catches. Look for him to stay hot in this shootout. His collection of sidekicks includes John Brown (banged up but always dangerous), Cole Beasley (our steady but unexciting #40 WR) and Gabriel Davis (an impressive rookie with 2 TDs). Treat them all as WR4s.
You already know what to do with Travis Zeus Kelce. He’s the #1 TE across anybody’s board that has a pulse. Despite his advancing age he’s still the best player at his position while playing in the league’s best offense. For the Bills their usual starter Dawson Knox is out, leaving duties for Tyler Kroft. Don’t play him and expect much, although he should be on the field for most of the game. He could be useful simply because he’s a living breathing tight end in a shootout.
