Fresh off a 446-yard, three-touchdown performance and set to sling the rock in Estadio Azteca’s high-altitude air, Patrick Mahomes has the top floor, median, ceiling and Projected Plus/Minus in our DraftKings Showdown Models and needs to be the priority in the 1.5x slot. Going with Mahomes in the Captain spot leaves enough room for Philip Rivers, Melvin Gordon, Austin Ekeler, Damien Williams (personal, questionable), and a punt play of $600 or less. The top choice for the punt is Andre Patton, who — despite nonexistent box-score production — has run at least 78% of the team’s pass routes each of the past two weeks.
On FanDuel, you have to fade one of Mahomes/Rivers/Gordon/Williams, and given Chiefs head coach Andy Reid’s unpredictable backfield usage, Williams is the clear choice. With Mahomes-Rivers-Gordon, you can also get in Ekeler and Darrel Williams, who is tied for the team lead in carries inside the opponent’s 5-yard line (five).
