Hopefully you set a Thursday-Monday lineup and grabbed some exposure to the absolute highest projected scoring team of the weekend: the New England Patriots as they take on the Dolphins in Miami. However in this article we'll spotlight the Kansas City Chiefs and LA Chargers, the two highest projected scoring teams on the Sunday main slate. As always thanks to Rotogrinders for their updated game totals
This week we have a plethora of value plays that can allow you to fit studs in from these two teams. They include:
CIN RB Gio Bernard $3100
LAR WR Josh Reynolds $3400
NYG WR Roger Lewis $3000
PHI TE Trey Burton $2900
HOU TE Stephen Anderson $3200
PHI RB Jay Ajayi $4500 (Lower ceiling, but led Eagles in snaps last week and Rams run D not great)
DSTs for $2700 or less: Minnesota, Detroit, Chicago
Here are the Five Guys I'll be Targeting in my DFS Lineups today from the Chiefs/Chargers
QB Alex Smith ($6500)
One Interception. That's all this Oakland defense has this year. Smith is in a spot to smash for the second consecutive week. Oakland's defense also allows the highest opposing QB rating at 108.2. I also love the ability that Smith possess in running the ball and Oakland's slow LBs should have a difficult time containing him and trying to keep an eye on Kelce at the same time. Fire up Smith in all formats.
WR Tyreek Hill ($7100)
Tyreek has 27 targets in his last three games and the last time he saw the Raiders he caught six balls for 125 yards receiving and a touchdown. Raiders are tied for the 4th worst amount of yards per attempt so the speedy Hill should be able to burn them at least once in a high scoring matchup.
TE Travis Kelce ($7400)
Now I won't tell you to pair up two TEs in your DK lineup with Trey Burton filling in for the injuried Zach Ertz, but I do advise setting at least two lineups with Kelce in one and Burton in another. The Raiders are not very good against the TE and will have to worry about a scrambling QB and one of the fastest players in the league. Good luck trying to cover Kelce over the middle who scored two TDs last week and found the end zone the last time they played in Week 7. He's the highest priced TE on the main slate for a reason and you need at least some exposure.
RB Melvin Gordon ($7800)
The eye test on Gordon might tell you that Gordon's sort of a pedestrian RB in this league but in this matchup vs a banged up Redskins defense it doesn't matter. Gordon's been getting the consistent workload (20-21-19 carries last three games) and he the potential to catch multiple passes, he hauled in all four of his targets last week against the Browns.
WR Keenan Allen ($8300)
No matter who covers Allen, he has moved into matchup proof territory as he's seen a whopping 41 targets the last three games, catching 33 of them with three consecutive 100 yard receiving performances. Rotoworld's Evan Silva points out that interior oriented WRs including Doug Baldwin, Adam Thielen & Nelson Agholor have burned Washington. I'm totally comfortable playing Allen who will probably have decent ownership, however I'm thinking DFS players might be worried about Josh Norman's presence and decide to pivot despite Allen's consistency.
