Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) has been declared out for Week 18 against the Broncos. Darrel Williams will find himself in the top 12 for Week 18. The Broncos are strong against the run, but operating as 10.5-point favorites, the Chiefs will have ample opportunity at establishment. As for CEH, with zero practice reps since Week 16, he is not looking terribly likely to return for the Wild Card Round. Of course, keeping him off his feet in Week 18 could be about getting him as close to 100 percent as possible. His playoff status will begin to come into focus by Wednesday.

Speaking Thursday, Broncos coach Vic Fangio ruled CBs Patrick Surtain and Ronald Darby out for Week 18's game against the Chiefs. Big news for Patrick Mahomes' chances of stacking some touchdowns on Saturday. Surtain finishes his rookie season with a 65.7 PFF coverage grade, four interceptions, 14 passes defensed, and a defensive score off Justin Herbert. He looks to be one of the more promising young corners in the NFL.
