Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Sammy Watkins (hamstring) will "most likely" be out for Week 7 against the Broncos. As expected. Demarcus Robinson ran a route on 100% of Patrick Mahomes' dropbacks on Monday night and finished with one fewer target (6) than Travis Kelce (7). Expect a similar workload for Robinson against the Broncos' injury-riddled defense. Mecole Hardman remains a deep league FLEX option after playing 40% of Kansas City's snaps and failing to record a single catch in that same game.
Denver Broncos DFS Spin
Noah Fant (ankle) will play in Week 7 against the Chiefs. Fant recorded a 19.8% target share in his first four games for the Broncos and suddenly returns with Drew Lock back under center. Presumably healthy after being removed from the team's injury report on Friday, Fant should be valued as a top-10 tight end in Week 7 for what should be negative game script against Kansas City on Sunday. Rookie Albert Okwuegbunam could still keep involved for TE Premium leagues in the red zone.
