Two overvalued Chiefs in AFC title game

We break down what Chiefs might be overvalued in this weekend’s DFS contests for the AFC title game.

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Tennessee Titans for the AFC title game Sunday, and there’s not much time left for NFL DFS contests. That being said, we’ve selected a couple Kansas City players who could be overvalued in this weekend’s two-game slate.

Tyreek Hill, WR ($7,200)

Hill has a higher ceiling than most of the players in this game, but his latest performances make his current pricing questionable. Patrick Mahomes ($7,700) is the only Chief more expensive than Hill. But Hill hasn’t reached the end zone in three games and hasn’t gotten more than five targets in just as long. His target numbers are concerning for a WR1 in such a pass-oriented offense. Running back Damien Williams ($7,000) has had more balls thrown his way than Hill in his last two appearances. Hill’s blazing speed has acted as a decoy that creates space for Kansas City’s other weapons.

LeSean McCoy, RB ($3,600)

McCoy was seen as a major signing when he joined Kansas City in September, but he hasn’t been a factor at all as of late. He hasn’t received a carry or target since Week 16 and has dropped to third on the depth chart. However, he’s still priced higher than second string Darwin Thompson. There’s a chance McCoy could get some touches if the Chiefs blow the Titans out, but $3,600 is a steep price to play for a player who might not even touch the field.
