The Kansas City Chiefs overcame a huge deficit to knock off the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round to advance to the AFC Title game, where they’ll face the Tennessee Titans. It’s no secret that Kansas City has a ton of offensive weapons, but some of their players are diamonds in the rough waiting to break out. We selected a pair of Chiefs DFS sleeper picks you should keep an eye on.

WR Mecole Hardman

Hardman is a rookie the Chiefs see a lot of Tyreek Hill in. The rookie isn’t a starter but has the ability to shift the momentum of big games. He made the Pro Bowl this year as a return man and has scored touchdowns on 23 percent of his receptions. His speed and elusiveness makes him a threat to make big plays while the defense is concerned with stopping Travis Kelce and Hill.

TE Blake Bell

Kelce lit it up against the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round, but also dealt with some hamstring tightness after already being banged up heading into the contest. There’s no reason to believe he won’t be able to play in the AFC Championship, but Kansas City could be cautious with him and give Bell more opportunities to make plays. Bell scored his first touchdown of the season against Houston, and this might just be the beginning for him.
