The Bills will play a rescheduled game for the second straight week when they welcome the Chiefs to Bills Stadium on Monday at 5 p.m. ET. Both teams are looking get back on track after losses, which will mean lots of motivation for Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen. Such a high-powered tilt is a lot of fun when making picks for DraftKings Showdown contests.
The studs in this game lead us to using a value captain, in this case Zack Moss. That allows us to play both Allen and Mahomes, along with one of their top pass-catchers apiece. This lineup will need the game to stay close for it to pay off, so hopefully Buffalo’s defense shows up at least a bit more than it did against the Titans on Tuesday.
DraftKings Showdown Picks: Chiefs vs. Bills
Captain (1.5x price, 1.5x points): RB Zack Moss, Bills ($2,400)
Moss (toe) has been back at practice all week and will return to action for the first time since Week 2. Ten-plus touches are likely in the cards against a bottom-10 run defense, especially if Buffalo tries to control possession by keeping the ball on the ground. Using a cheap captain with so much talent in this game helps the rest of our lineup, too.
FLEX: QB Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($13,000)
The only choice you make here is whether to captain Mahomes or not. You can’t fade him. The Bills just gave up 42 points to the Titans. The biggest reason we’re choosing to keep Mahomes out of the captain spot is so we can play the next three guys here, too.
FLEX: QB Josh Allen, Bills ($11,200)
Allen’s coming off his worst game of the season, but the Chiefs don’t have a super strong defense and Buffalo will likely be hyped up to bounce back at home. Allen’s tendency to rush the ball in near the goal liine makes him that much tougher to fade, too.
FLEX: TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs ($10,400)
It was a choice between Kelce and Tyreek Hill here. Hill likely gets the Tre’Davious White treatment, while Kelce faces a Bills defense that’s allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to tight ends in 2020. We’ll use that simple formula to arrive at Kelce in this lineup.
FLEX: WR Stefon Diggs, Bills ($9,600)
Diggs continues to have a mega relationship with Allen in Diggs’ first season in Buffalo. He had 10 catches a week ago as the Bills trailed for much of Tuesday night’s game. Another game trailing for Buffalo will be another big fantasy game for Diggs.
FLEX: TE Tyler Kroft, Bills ($2,800)
Starter Dawson Knox has been ruled out, which is good for Kroft, whose two best weeks this season came with Knox out. The Chiefs have been a below-average team at defending the TE position in 2020, so expect Kroft to get at least a few chances to deliver.
