Divisional Round Single-Game DFS Breakdown: Bills at Chiefs

The Bills are coming off a massive win over the Patriots and are looking at no questionable players. The first time these teams matched up, the Bills didn't give up a sack and forced four turnovers in an 18-point victory in Kansas City. However, this time cornerback Tre'Davious White will not be out there who had a stellar game, only allowing five completions on 11 targets for 36 yards. As for the offense, Josh Allen threw for 315 yards on just 26 attempts while getting 11 carries for 59 yards. The Bills had multiple deep balls that connected, and the two main players giving that up were Daniel Sorensen, who allowed 114 yards on just three targets, and L'Jarius Sneed, who allowed 75 yards on six targets.

The Chiefs let the game get out of hand quickly, and Patrick Mahomes ended up having 63 dropbacks which is the highest amount of dropbacks he had all year. In recent weeks, Mahomes has thrown 17 touchdowns with only two interceptions. He has become patient and is comfortable waiting for the perfect opportunity to make a big play. That has been key to the Chiefs' success, as they are 6-1 when he doesn't commit a turnover this year. The running back room of the Chiefs is extremely volatile, and this week it gets even trickier. Darrel Williams had two DNP's, and I expect him not to be active for this game with Clyde Edwards-Helaire being off the injury report. Jerrick McKinnon played extremely well in the opening game, having 142 yards on 18 touches with a touchdown, and should have the lead role in this game. I am looking at McKinnon having most of the workload, with Edwards-Helaire coming in for relief.
