Best Quarterback Picks, Chiefs vs. Texans
Cash games: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (DraftKings $8,100, FanDuel $9,100)
Patrick Mahomes is expected to have a field day against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Can the Texans stay in this game long enough for Patrick Mahomes to hit his cap? If so, freak out!
Tournaments: Davis Mills, QB, Houston Texans (Draftkings $5,000, FanDuel $6,300)
Who wants to play Davis Mills in a DFS formation when Patrick Mahomes is on the opposite sideline? Someone? I did not mean it. If you want the ultimate leverage against the opposition, you only live once.
Top running back picks
Cash Games: Isiah Pacheco, RB, Kansas City (DraftKings $5.9,000, FanDuel $7.6,000)
Isiah Pacheco brings some explosiveness to Kansas City’s running offense. Pacheco doesn’t fall on first touch and keeps the defense honest. The Houston Texans are the worst in the NFL at defending the RB’s position. Look for Isiah Pacheco to get more work than usual in this one.
Tournament: Rex Burkhead, RB, Houston (DraftKings $4.6,000, FanDuel $4.8,000)
Dameon Pierce was ruled out for the remainder of the season. The Texans need to find something at the RB position. Rex Burkhead is a veteran, and the Texans trust him as a wide receiver and pass blocker. Burkhead isn’t an exciting game, but the game’s script may require a lot of trash receptions for the veteran.
Wide receivers and tight ends
Gambling: Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs (DraftKings $7.8,000, FanDuel $8,000)
Travis Kelce is one of, if not the most reliable DFS option regardless of his position. The Texans do a great job defending the WR position. Look for the Chiefs to involve Travis Kelce early and often in this one.
Tournament: Chris Moore, WR, Houston Texans (DraftKings $4.2,000, FanDuel $6,000)
Chris Moore is the only game in town for the Houston Texans. Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins are out, while Dameon Pierce is out for the regular season. What will the Houston Texans do? Davis Mills will have to throw the ball, and his only remaining target is Chris Moore. Don’t overlook Moore as he shone against the Dallas Cowboys.
