Kansas City Chiefs Fantasy Spin
Patrick Mahomes completed 27-of-34 passes for 340 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Chiefs' 23-3, Week 15 win over the Broncos. Mahomes was brilliant despite the snowy conditions. He added a two-point conversion to Sammy Watkins that featured some vintage off-script scrambling from Mahomes before he eventually found his man. The 2018 MVP connected with Tyreek Hill on both of his scoring strikes. Mahomes remains anyone’s idea of a matchup-proof QB that should be ranked among the week’s top-three options ahead of next week’s matchup against the Bears.
Chicago Bears Fantasy Spin
Bears coach Matt Nagy said the Bears will play their starters in the final two regular season games. Green Bay's win over Chicago in Week 15 clinched a playoff berth all the while eliminating the Bears from postseason contention. Nagy still said the organization still has no plans to shut down DT Akiem Hicks and will play the "full team and starters" the next two weeks in order to evaluate personnel. With the Chiefs and Vikings on the horizon to close '19, all of Mitchell Trubisky, Allen Robinson, and Anthony Miller could offer fantasy value in their regular season finale if the Vikings lock up a playoff berth over the next 14 days. Minnesota clinches if the Rams lose either of their next two contests, potentially resting starters in Week 17.
