It’s finally here: Super Bowl 55. Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play host to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend to find out if the Chiefs will become repeat champions, or if the Bucs will win their second-ever Super Bowl championship, and their first since 2003.
Outside of the big names, who are some lower-tier value flex plays on both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs that could help you win this Super Bowl 55 showdown on DraftKings? Let’s discuss some options below.
Cameron Brate, TE, $4,800
Brate scored a touchdown and went three-for-five and 19 yards in the Bucs NFC Championship win over the Packers, scoring 10.9 DKFP in the process. He’s seen a total of 16 targets in his last three games with 11 receptions and is expected to have a pretty decent role in the Super Bowl match-up this weekend for the Bucs. With a receiving corps consisting of guys like Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Antonio Brown, the tight end spot isn’t going to see quite as much action from Brady, but Cameron Brate should still see a good handful of targets which makes him a great value pickup.
Brate was listed on the Bucs final injury report as questionable after picking up a back injury in practice this week. Adam Schefter reports on gameday that he is expected to be active, but the injury does make for a riskier, but likely lower rostership play in DFS games.
Ryan Succop, K, $3,800
Succop hasn’t missed a field goal attempt in his last four games, going a perfect 11-for-11 and racking up those fantasy points as far as kickers go. In those games, he’s totaled 47 DKFP and will likely have a big role in the game this weekend. His clutch 46-yard kick in the fourth quarter against the Packers in the NFC Championship sailed through the posts to give the Bucs a good amount of padding going into the final minutes of that game.
Darrel Williams, RB, $5,200
While coming in just above the $5k price tag, Williams had himself a decent game against the Bills in the AFC Championship game, rushing 13 times for 52 yards and a touchdown. That’s a performance he put in despite Clyde Edwards-Helaire making his return to the lineup, and Williams should be a pretty solid value pick for the Chiefs going into the Super Bowl this weekend.
