DFS Showdown Tips: Chiefs-Ravens

By Matt Schauf 10:09am EDT 9/28/20

Mahomes threw for 374 yards and 3 scores, despite having no Tyreek Hill on the field. He found LeSean McCoy, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson for TDs, while Travis Kelce posted a 7-89 line. Darrel Williams delivered 109 total yards on 9 carries and 5 catches.

On the Baltimore side, then-rookie Marquise Brown caught just 2 passes but drew a game-high 9 targets. Lamar Jackson had a quiet game (for him) at K.C., completing just 22 of 43 passes for 267 yards and adding 8-46-1 on the ground. But the Ravens put 28 points on the board, let by Mark Ingram’s 103 yards and 3 TDs rushing. Gus Edwards added 53 rushing yards and hits the rematch off an up game last week.

Kansas City arrives to this round rated just 23rd in overall defensive DVOA by Football Outsiders: 17th vs. the pass, 26th vs. the run.

It’s early. That’s based on just 2 games. But that’s probably not the breakdown you want as you head to Baltimore.

Let’s look at the values for tonight’s highly anticipated showdown …
