NFL Week 3, Regular Season
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Sammy Watkins (concussion, neck) is questionable for Week 3 against the Ravens. "We'll just monitor him as we go and see how he does," coach Andy Reid said. Watkins was upgraded to "full" for Saturday's practice, so his odds of suiting up for the Chiefs' likely Monday night shootout with the Ravens are looking good. Dynamite in Week 1, Watkins was quieter in Week 2. Coming off injury against an elite secondary, Watkins belongs on the WR3/4 borderline for Week 3.
Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Mark Ingram rushed nine times for 55 yards and one score, hauling in two catches for 33 yards in Baltimore's Week 2 trouncing of Houston. Ingram was out-carried by Gus Edwards 10 to 9 but still made one of his attempts count with a 29-yard touchdown dash up the middle on 4th-and-1 in the fourth quarter. Currently averaging 9.5 carries per game through Baltimore's first two contests, fantasy players should expect that number to increase the moment the Ravens face tougher competition. He'll be a matchup-based RB3 in Week 3 against the Chiefs.
Chiefs vs. Ravens Betting Prediction
The Chiefs are 9-1-1 against the spread in their last 11 games as a road underdog, are 11-2 against the number in their last 13 games played in the month of September and are 9-2-1 against the number in their last 12 road games when facing a team with a winning home record. On the other side, the Ravens are just 4-11 against the spread in their last 15 games as a home favorite and are 1-6 at the betting window in their last seven games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
