We’ll officially get no Patrick Mahomes in this primetime matchup that was supposed to center on Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers. So will we instead get a battle of RBs?
Both the Chiefs and Packers feature multiple viable RB options for this showdown slate. Might your best play be to pick an offense and then double up on RBs? And which pass-catchers pop as the best values?
Let’s take a look …
Popping both kickers into your lineup might be the right place to start here. Harrison Butker and Mason Crosby have combined for 6 games of 10+ DK points over the past 5 weeks.
Kumerow has done well on playing time -- 67% or more in 3 straight games -- but he has yet to top 3 targets or 2 catches this year. Try to get to Geronimo Allison, who has seen 5+ targets each of the past 3 weeks and will run from the slot against a Chiefs D missing slot CB Kendall Fuller.
Starting your FD showdown lineup with the top 4 guys on this chart might be a good idea. We should get plenty of rushing from offenses each matching up with a defense that plays the pass much tougher than the run.
