Chiefs Defense/Special Teams
Projection: 6 Sacks, 2 INTs, 1 FF, & 1 TD
Fantasy Football owners should be pretty excited about the Kansas City Chiefs defense and Special Teams this week. For whatever reason, this unit tends to go off when it comes to facing Philip Rivers and the Chargers. Bob Sutton will be wanting his unit to finish the season strong, so expect an aggressive approach this week.
The Chargers are without top receiving threat Keenan Allen and potentially without running back Melvin Gordon. That should seriously limit their offensive capabilities this week, which will give the Chiefs a big advantage. Kansas City will likely send a lot of pressure against Philip Rivers as the Chargers quarterback is not fleet of foot.
This is an excellent match up for the Kansas City Chiefs to end the Fantasy Football season on. I expect a dominating performance where the Chiefs defense simply takes the game over. This is a group that fantasy owners should be keeping their eyes on for next year as they likely get even stronger in 2017. I love them this week as a DFS play.
