DFS Showdown Tips: Chiefs-Bears

By Matt Schauf 5:12pm EST 12/22/19

Is Mitchell Trubisky the key to your showdown lineup tonight?

Obviously, the focal point will be getting as many Chiefs stars as you can fit. And for a change, the opposing QB can help.

Who else might give you upside along with salary relief, though?


TE Jesper Horsted has topped 40% playing time the past 2 weeks and totaled 7 targets, so he’s worth a look. Trubisky faces a tough pass defense -- Football Outsiders rates the Chiefs 6th in pass-defense DVOA -- but the Chicago QB has topped 21 fantasy points in 4 straight games and 5 of his past 6. The fact that we get him at less than $9K lowers the risk, too. Both QBs usually arrive with 5-digit salaries.


No such salary relief with Trubisky on FanDuel. Instead, Damien Williams looks like the best mix of savings and upside here. Two straight Chicago opponents and 3 of the past 5 have scored 2 RB rushing TDs apiece. The past 2 games that Williams didn’t leave early found him racking up 14 and then 24 opportunities, with 128 and 109 total yards. Those sat all the way back in weeks 9 and 10, but he returns to an offense down Darrel Williams and with a low ceiling on LeSean McCoy’s touches.
