Conference Round Breakdown

Patrick MahomesVegas is pretty telling about who they believe will win this week, and it points to where we should be going with our DFS plays as well. As expected, the Chiefs have the highest total on the slate at (29.75). The 49ers are next at 26, with the Titans at 22.75 following after that. The Packers have the lowest implied total going up against the toughest defense on the slate. With just two games, ownership will heavily follow the Chiefs as expected, but they do have the best matchup and offense remaining. It really isn’t even close either. Patrick Mahomes is the top quarterback option, and you don’t need me to tell you that. The quarterback play in the second game is a bit pedestrian and the opposing pass defenses are generally ones I won’t target. Ryan Tannehill is a pivot you can make, especially if the Chiefs jump out to a lead and can get the Titans throwing instead of their usual game plan of handing the ball off to Derrick Henry.

The Chiefs ranked 29th against the run this season, and 6th against the pass. It will be a tough matchup for the passing attack, and I wouldn’t doubt Henry still getting his usual run. The Chiefs defense funnels things down to the tight end, which puts Jonnu Smith in a value spot. They allowed the 11th most fantasy points to opposing tight ends and the same amount of receptions as the horrid Arizona Cardinals defense. Kansas City allowed the second fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers, but Brown and Davis both being deep threats. The Titans were middle of the road in fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers this season, and after a quiet Tyreek Hill week, we should be firing him back up. Tennessee allowed the fourth most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, putting Travis Kelce in another good spot.

The Packers offense is going to be tough to use on the road against this 49ers defense. Nothing looks good on paper, but Davante Adams has plenty of volume to go after. He saw another double-digit target week last week, blowing up against Seattle. Even against this 49ers defense, Aaron Rodgers will have to force feed him the ball. Jimmy Graham and the rest of the receiving options just haven’t been big enough factors. The 49ers run defense is beatable, and you wouldn’t look at it by their fantasy points allowed, but did struggle against the run at times this season. Green bay will be looking to get Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams involved. I don’t mind going there this week given the volume. On the flip side of this game, the Packers are a slight above average pass defense, and a below average run defense. They allowed the 10th most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, and rank 23rd in DVOA. They were 10th against the pass. Emmanuel Sanders and Deebo Samuel are still playable here, but George Kittle is in the best spot of all three.
