Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin

Patrick Mahomes completed 33-of-54 passes for 272 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Chiefs' Week 5 loss to the Bills. Mahomes made a few questionable decisions that led to turnovers and generally had a tough time against a stingy Bills defense. It was an uncharacteristically poor performance for arguably the best player in football, who will look to return to form in Week 6 against a Washington defense that has been gashed through the air all season. Mahomes remains a high-end QB1.

Washington Football Team DFS Spin

Taylor Heinicke completed 20-of-41 passes for 248 yards and two interceptions in the Football Team's Week 5 loss to the Saints, adding five rushes for 40 yards. Heinicke's willingness to flee the pocket -- he's rushed 22 times in four starts this season -- has kept him viable for fantasy purposes, but his erratic play is edging toward disastrous. He had a handful of head-scratching throws, trying to jam the ball into double and triple coverage despite a noticeable lack of elite arm strength. New Orleans defenders dropped a couple interceptions while picking Heinicke twice on Sunday. Heinicke will be tough to bench in Week 6 against an atrocious Kansas City defense allowing 8.9 yards per pass attempt, the third highest rate in the league through five weeks.
