Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin

Patrick Mahomes completed 34-of-45 passes for 348 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Chiefs' 35-31, Week 11 win over the Raiders Sunday night. Mahomes' only two interceptions of the season have come against the Raiders, as Trayvon Mullen got Mahomes in the red zone in this one on what looked like a possible miscommunication with Demarcus Robinson in the first half. But Mahomes rebounded and engineered the game-winning drive with less than two minutes to play by hitting Travis Kelce for a game-winning 22-yard score. His first touchdown was a three-yard hookup with Tyreek Hill in the first quarter. Mahomes has six 300-yard games and multiple touchdown passes in all but one contest this season. Mahomes faces a tougher Week 12 test against the Bucs.

Tampa Bay Bucs DFS Spin

Tom Brady is 0-for-19 on pass attempts of 20-plus yards over the past month. That's a 0.0 quarterback rating if you're counting at home. It's an area where the stats match the eye test, as Brady has been throwing one wounded dove after another whenever he ventures beyond the second level of the defense. Coach Bruce Arians has said Brady might be confused by the coverages, which, yikes. Despite decent overall statistics, Brady is beginning to look like a weak link on an otherwise dominant roster. Brady has made like Lazarus more than once in his career. He needs to now more than ever. The Chiefs are on deck for Week 12.
