Denver Broncos DFS Spin
Drew Lock, Blake Bortles, and Brett Rypien tested negative for COVID-19 and have been cleared to return to the team. All three signal callers missed Week 12 after contract tracing showed they were not wearing masks around QB Jeff Driskel, who tested positive for the virus. Denver was predictably walloped by the Saints Sunday with practice squad receiver Kendall Hinton under center. Lock will start this week against the Chiefs. He'll only be startable in superflex formats.
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Patrick Mahomes completed 37-of-49 passes for 462 yards and three touchdowns in the Chiefs' 27-24, Week 12 win over the Bucs. He added 28 rushing yards on four attempts. This was Mahomes' fifth 400-yard passing game in his career and second of the season. All three touchdowns went to Tyreek Hill from 75, 44, and 20 yards out, and Mahomes could've had an even bigger afternoon if he hadn't missed a wide-open Mecole Hardman for what should have been a walk-in 89-yard score. The throw was well behind Hardman who had nobody around him in the middle of the field. Mahomes is obviously the best player on the planet and gets a luscious Week 13 draw against the Broncos.
