The Denver Broncos host the Kansas City Chiefs in a potentially fun divisional matchup on Thursday Night Football to open Week 7 of the 2019 NFL season. The Chiefs are a road favorite, but divisional games on a short week can make for zaniness for time to time. The Chiefs enter the game 4-2, but on a two-game losing streak, while the Broncos are 2-4, but on a two-game winning streak.
Kansas City is a 3-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and the point total sits at 49. The line opened at 3.5, so it’s notable that some money brought it down to the field goal line. Both teams enter the game 3-3 against the spread.
This will be a huge game for fantasy football implications. The Chiefs alone feature Patrick Mahomes and a slew of pass catchers, along with the backfield of Damien Williams, LeSean McCoy, and Darrel Williams. Sammy Watkins is a question mark for the Chiefs, but has a decent shot of playing.
The Broncos expect to have injured Emmanuel Sanders playing alongside standout Courtland Sutton. The biggest question for Broncos fantasy owners is what to make of the Phillip Lindsay, Royce Freeman backfield. If the Broncos are playing catch-up on Thursday, we might not get any further clarity.
