Los Angeles Chargers DFS Spin
Joey Bosa (foot, ankle) is questionable for Week 3 against the Chiefs. Bosa logged three consecutive DNPs for Los Angeles this week, earning a (truly) questionable tag for Sunday's super showdown against Kansas City. Kyler Fackrell and fourth-round rookie Chris Rumph would be available behind Uchenna Nwosu as the team's top EDGE players if Bosa is out, though neither replacement moves the needle in this matchup. It's obviously an upgrade for the Chiefs' passing game as a whole.
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-31 passes for 343 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in Kansas City's Week 2 loss to the Ravens. Mahomes collapsed late in the fourth quarter, throwing a costly interception trying to avoid a sack that gave the Ravens the lead. He was on his way to rebounding on the next drive, but a Clyde Edwards-Helaire fumble allowed the Ravens to seal the win. With the Ravens taking away Tyreek Hill, Mahomes completed a pass to nine different receivers. Mahomes has played at an MVP level through the first two games, throwing for 680 yards with a 6:1 TD/INT ratio. He'll faceoff with Justin Herbert in another potential shootout with the Chargers in Week 3.
