The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills will face off in a Wednesday sim Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET. We break down the ideal Showdown lineup strategy for the DFS contest. You can set your lineup and play at DraftKings before kickoff.

Captain’s Picks

Both quarterbacks could be quality captain’s picks in this game. Patrick Mahomes ($17,700) will likely be the most popular pick. The cover athlete can overcome elite defenses thanks to his accuracy and arsenal of top-notch weapons on the outside. The Bills do have a stingy defense, but it’s not good enough to hold down the most dynamic offense.

Josh Allen ($16,800) is cheaper than the Chiefs’ top skill players and is a better dual-threat option than Mahomes. Kansas City can get caught up in shootouts, and Allen’s rushing value is good enough to make captaining him and loading up on Chiefs players in the flex worth it.

Flex Men

Damien Williams ($8,000) and Devin Singletary ($7,600) both tally double digits in DKFP and can do a little bit of everything. Williams is a more dangerous, but Singletary is one of the few Bills players with significant upside. Quite a few Chiefs players could crack 10 DKFP but your options are limited on Buffalo.
