this kansas city chiefs travel face houston texans In a battle of teams on the other side of the NFL spectrum. The Kansas City Chiefs are in the running for the AFC’s No. 1 seed, while the Houston Texans continue to battle for the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Can the Texans stay competitive?
Best Quarterback Pick, Chiefs vs. Texans
Cash Games: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs ($8.1K at DraftKings, $9.1K at FanDuel)
Patrick Mahomes should play against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Can the Texans stay in this game long enough for Patrick Mahomes to hit his ceiling? If so, get dizzy!
Tournament: Davis Mills, QB, Houston Texans (Draftkings $5K, FanDuel $6.3K)
Who wants to play Davis Mills in a DFS lineup when Patrick Mahomes is on the opposite side? anyone? I do not think so. You only live once if you want to gain ultimate leverage against the opposition.
best running back option
Cash Game: Isiah Pacheco, RB, Kansas City ($5.9K at DraftKings, $7.6K at FanDuel)
Isiah Pacheco provided some explosiveness to Kansas City’s run offense. Pacheco didn’t go down on first contact and kept the defense honest. The Houston Texans are the worst in the NFL at defending the RB position. Look for Isiah Pacheco to get more work than usual on this.
Tournament: Rex Burkhead, RB, Houston (DraftKings $4.6K, FanDuel $4.8K)
Damon Pierce has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. The Texans have to figure out a way at the RB spot. Rex Burkhead is a veteran who the Texans trust as a pass catcher and pass blocker. Burkhead isn’t an exciting game, but the playbook might call for plenty of garbage-time receptions for the veteran defender.
wide receiver and tight end
Cash Games: Travis KelceTE, Kansas City Chiefs (DraftKings $7.8K, FanDuel $8K)
Travis Kelce is one, if not the most reliable DFS option, regardless of location. The Texans did a good job defending the WR spot. Look for the Chiefs to get Travis Kelce involved early and often.
Contest: Chris MooreWR, Houston Texans ($4.2K from DraftKings, $6K from FanDuel)
Chris Moore is the only game the Houston Texans have. Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins are out, and Dameon Pierce is out for the regular season. What are the Houston Texans going to do? Davis Mills will have to pitch, and his only remaining target is Chris Moore. Don’t underestimate Moore, as he was outstanding against the Dallas Cowboys.
