Sunday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Broncos at Chiefs

The 2020 NFL season has been something, and Sunday night’s game between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs encapsulates it perfectly. Denver saw four quarterbacks put on the reserve/COVID list and lost to the New Orleans Saints in a game where less than 100 passing yards were accumulated. The Kansas City Tyreek Hills throttled the Tompa Bay Buccaneers on the back of Hill’s historic receiving (and fantasy) production.

Surely, we can take something from those games heading into Sunday Night Football, and don’t call me Shirley.

It is vital to remember that single-game slates are not simply a “max salary, play as many big names as possible, and submit” format, especially in larger tournament fields. We need to identify players that can be pieces in their offense’s success, whether in the lead or trailing, as well as the players that could be focal points in a neutral game script. The ability to then take those players and identify which will succeed in the single-game format will put us in a better position to succeed as daily fantasy players.

Remember that the captain spot is different on DraftKings than on FanDuel. The captain spot on DraftKings delivers fantasy points and prices multiplied by 1.5. The MVP spot on FanDuel will score at the same rate but without the increased pricing for the player slot. All flex positions score normally.

Vegas Total and Spread

The Kansas City Chiefs are 13.5-point home favorites, and the total is 50.5 points. The Chiefs have a 32-point implied total, while the Denver Broncos have an implied total of 18.5 points.
