What to do with Chiefs wide receivers in Super Bowl DFS

Ranking Kansas City’s wide receiver plays in terms of fantasy value on DraftKings in the Super Bowl showdown slate.

When you’re on the field with Patrick Mahomes, you have a chance to make a game changing play. That means any of the Kansas City wide plays could break this Super Bowl showdown slate. Here’s how I value them in daily fantasy football, factoring in salary.

Mecole Hardman ($2,200)

Hardman carries risk, but there’s a lot to like. The speedster has seen five targets in the postseason, he just hasn’t turned one into a big play. In the regular season, the rookie had six touchdown catches, including longs of 83, 68, 48 and 42 yards. He has the big-play ability to be the key piece to your lineup. On top of that, he’s the cheapest play of the group, and returns punts, giving you a little bit more touchdown upside.

DeMarcus Robinson ($2,600)

Robinson is a pivot off Hardman, but anybody can wind up the KC WR2 depending on the matchups. Robinson’s had a role in the playoffs, seeing six targets. He showed us a high ceiling back in Week 2, bringing in all six of his targets for 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns — 38.2 DKFP. I like targeting the cheap upside in at least one play on the Chiefs.

Tyreek Hill ($11,000)

Hill’s clearly going to get the most volume of the bunch, but he’s just so expensive. That could get you lower ownership on him, and is he winds up catching a couple touchdowns, it’s the right call to roster him. But the savings on Travis Kelce ($9,600) makes him the stronger play to me.

Sammy Watkins ($7,000)

Watkins isn’t even in consideration here. He brought in a 60-yard touchdown last week, helping him get to 27.4 DKFP. That was just his seventh game in double-digit DKFP this season, and the first time he reached the end zone SINCE WEEK 1. Hardman and Robinson are priced as inconsistent plays. Watkins is priced as a consistent producer, and that just hasn’t been the case.
