The Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills meet Sunday to close out the divisional round of the playoffs, with both teams hoping to make a trip back to the AFC title game. The Chiefs are going for a fourth straight AFC title game appearance, while the Bills attempt to make it back-to-back trips. The Chiefs will have Clyde Edwards-Helaire back, which impacts Derrick Gore’s status in fantasy and DFS contests.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs RB Derrick Gore ($4,000)

Gore would’ve likely been picked to have an expanded role in the wild-card game against the Steelers with Edwards-Helaire out. However, the running back only got three carries and didn’t catch a pass. This backfield is confusing once you get past the top spot, so it’s hard to count on Gore to do anything meaningful Sunday.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Gore is not worth starting in fantasy or DFS lineups, especially at this price point.
