Sunday Night DraftKings Showdown for Conference Championship Weekend
The AFC title game features a juicy matchup between the rising #2 seed Buffalo Bills and the #1 seed Kansas City Chiefs. According to Vegas, this contest features a whopping 54.5 point total with the defending Super Bowl champs favored by 3 at home. With both teams essentially deciding to forgo the rushing attack and #EstablishthePass, this should be a really fun matchup to break down from a showdown perspective, largely because of the variance associated with pass catchers in NFL fantasy football. Below, I’ll break down the injury situations for both teams, provide some of my favorite captain selections and bring you my favorite GPP targets at the flex positions.
Vegas Implied Team Totals
- Kansas City Chiefs: 28.75
- Buffalo Bills: 25.75
Kansas City Chiefs
- RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (Q) – ‘CEH’ is questionable for Sunday night but looks on track to play for the first time since Week 14 when he suffered a high ankle sprain against the Saints. If he can’t go, Darrell Williams would get a massive boost in value at his current salary. More on him soon.
