Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Rashee Rice ran a season-high 30 routes in the Chiefs’ Week 7 win over the Chargers. This is the closest we’ve come to Rice playing as the Chiefs’ WR1. While he was Narrowly out-snapped by Marquez Valdes-Scantling (47) and Skyy Moore (41), Rice ran the second-most routes of any Chiefs receiver and was second in targets behind only Travis Kelce (13). Currently rostered in only 58 percent of Yahoo leagues, Rice is fast approaching WR3 status if his playing time continues to grow. Sunday’s win over the Chargers marked only the third time Rice has run 20 or more routes this season.

Chiefs vs. Broncos Prediction:
Take Denver. The Broncos should have covered in Kansas City a few weeks ago when Chiefs’ backers received a front door cover. Regardless, the Broncos have played Patrick Mahomes tough over the last three seasons. While they failed to cover against the Chiefs as a 10.5-point underdog on October 12, they cashed against Kansas City in both meetings last season. In fact, they have beaten the Chiefs at the window in four out of the last six meetings between these two teams, including twice in Denver over that span.
