Week 13: Chiefs vs. Raiders
Coming off a bye and a 24 – 17 win in Mexico City a week before, the 7-4 Chiefs are fresh and confident for their AFC West divisional bout versus the 6-5 Raiders in Arrowhead Sunday afternoon. Patrick Mahomes lit up the Raiders in Week 2 and now he has all his receiving weapons at his disposal. Not to mention, Andy Reid has a 17-3 record coming off a bye. It’s going to be a fun one!
Mahomes has been good this year, but we haven’t seen one of his record-breaking performances yet… I believe that changes here. The Raiders are in the bottom three versus the pass, have surrendered the fourth-most passing yards, and the second-most passing touchdowns to quarterbacks this season. Aaron Rodgers threw for 5 touchdowns against these Raiders this year, and I think we can do even better! Mahomes has a healthy Tyreek Hill and a beat up backfield. It should be a pass heavy day. Look for the high flying Kansas City Chiefs to fire on all cylinders today, and never letting off the gas.
Let’s talk Chiefs stack!
Patrick Mahomes (7400)
Tyreek Hill (8000)
Sammy Watkins (5400)
These are my core 3 for the Chiefs stack today. Travis Kelce (7200) is always in play and typically shreds the Raiders every time they play, but there are a lot of good value TE’s this week so you could potentially fade Kelce. I also like Demarcus Robinson (3700), Mecole Hardman (4200), and Darrel Williams (4400) to squeeze in for a value as Mahomes throws to everyone.
