KC Chiefs lead league in touchdowns of 40+ yards

There is a ton of actionable information in BJ Kissel's '10 Stats to Know' article regarding this week's Chiefs vs. Giants article, but stat No. 10 was the most eye-popping:

"The Chiefs’ offense has scored eight touchdowns of at least 40 yards this season, which leads the league.

"And on the flipside, the Giants defense has given up five touchdowns of at least 40 yards, which is tied for the most in the league."

Fantasy Impact: 

A lot of chatter in the fantasy community this week has centered on Travis Kelce's fantastic matchup versus a Giants defense that has allowed a TD to a tight end in every game this season. It's actually a streak that has extended to their last 10 games, which is an NFL record, according to Kissel. The Giants are also allowing 132.6 rushing yards per game—30th in the league.

There's potential for plenty of Chiefs TDs in this game, from players at all skill positions, and Vegas backs that up as the Chiefs are implied to score almost four TDs in this game. It's safe to say fire up all Chiefs in this one. Alex Smith is our No. 3 ranked QB, Kareem Hunt is our No. 1 ranked RB, and Kelce is our No. 1 ranked TE. Kicker Harrison Butker and the Chiefs defense are also top-two options at their respective positions.
