The Denver Broncos will travel to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs to wrap up this weekend’s action in a Sunday Night Football matchup. We’ve identified some plays worth considering on DraftKings for $5,000 or cheaper to help you achieve success in DFS.

Top value plays

Royce Freeman, RB, Broncis ($1,200)

Freeman’s fantasy upside hinges on the availability of Phillip Lindsay, who is questionable to play after suffering a knee injury in Week 12. Freeman led Denver in rushing yards last week with 50 yards on eight carries despite Melvin Gordon playing 85 percent of the snaps. He could split the workload evenly with Gordon if Lindsay — who’s been limited in practice this week — can’t play. Freeman could return more value than any player in the game at this price point.

Noah Fant, TE, Broncos ($5,000)

Luckily for Denver, Kendall Hinton won’t be under center again, as Drew Lock is back from a one-game layoff. The Broncos’ passing game should come back to life and Kansas City ranks 27th against tight ends on DraftKings. Fant leads Denver in catches with 40 and should rebound after bring the only Broncos player with a reception in Week 12.

Le’Veon Bell, RB, Chiefs ($2,400)

Kansas City is ramping up Bell’s involvement in the offense and it’s likely that the Chiefs will run some clock as 13.5-point favorites in this game. Bell played 24 snaps in Week 12, which eclipsed his previous season-high of 19 with Kansas City. He has a 100 percent catch rate since joining the Chiefs and could make his mark through the air as well.
