The Kansas City Chiefs are set to host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. ET. Both teams have plenty of star power, but there are role players who could drastically affect the game's outcome.

Outside of the big names for the Bills and Chiefs, who are some lower-tier value flex plays on both teams that could help you win this AFC Championship game showdown on DraftKings? Let’s discuss some options below.

Cole Beasley, Wide Receiver, $5,000

Beasley is the Bills’ top option for short routes in the middle of the field, and the Chiefs were successful in shutting big plays down the field down against Josh Allen. Beasley caught four passes for 45 yards and a score the last time he faced Kansas City. He didn’t record a catch for the first time all season in the Divisional Round, and the chances of that happening again are slim.

Mecole Hardman, Wide Receiver, $4,800

Hardman’s production could largely depend on Sammy Watkins's status ($3,800), who was a limited participant in practice this week and could be a game-time decision on Saturday. Watkins is the undisputed third option and has come up big for the Chiefs during the playoffs. Hardman’s speed makes him an effective fill-in, though. He’s reached 10 DKFP in three of his last five games.

Tyler Bass, Kicker, $3,400

Bass struggled in his last outing because of the wind but was a top-five fantasy kicker during the regular season. He accounted for eight of his team’s 17 points against Kansas City and could get some easy points if Buffalo struggles to score inside enemy territory.
