DFS Showdown Tips: Titans-Chiefs

By Matt Schauf 11:01am EST 1/16/20

Here’s the weekend’s obvious offensive centerpiece.

When Kansas City visited Tennessee back in Week 10, the teams combined for 67 points and 901 yards. Patrick Mahomes returned from his knee injury just in time to blow up. Tyreek Hill and Derrick Henry exploded as well. Damien Williams garnered 24 touches. Mecole Hardman, Adam Humphries and Anthony Firkser scored TDs.

The rematch finds both offenses still performing near the top of the league. Football Outsiders’ “weighted” DVOA (favoring recent games over early-season contests) finds the Titans 3rd-best in the league, tops among the 4 teams still playing. The Chiefs follow close behind, though (5th), and sport a larger advantage in “weighted” defensive DVOA: #13 vs. Tennessee’s #20 ranking.

Both teams come off impressive offensive showings in the Divisional Round and huge fantasy numbers among their offensive leaders. So where should we look for value as we try to widdle the options down to reveal our showdown lineups?
