Las Vegas Raiders DFS Spin
Darren Waller (knee, back) is out for Week 14 against the Chiefs. Foster Moreau will fill in for Waller again against the Chiefs. While Moreau offers some pass-catching ability, he doesn't come close to replicating Waller's impact on the offense. Hunter Renfrow will likely be tasked with picking up the additional slack, as he did against Washington. Waller will look to return in Week 15 when the Raiders take on the Browns.
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Travis Kelce caught 3-of-8 targets for 27 yards in the Chiefs' Week 13 win over the Broncos. It was Kelce's first game this year with fewer than four catches, and he also tied for his second-lowest receiving yardage output of the season. Still, he notched a respectable eight targets despite only 29 team passing attempts, and fantasy managers know by now not to overreact to a down game when you're dealing with the undisputed best tight end in fantasy football. Kelce should bounce back next week against the Raiders. He only has one touchdown in his last seven games, but there's no reason to worry about the 32-year-old superstar.
