Chiefs’ players vs. LA Chargers

If you have Patrick Mahomes on your fantasy team, he’s a must-start every week regardless of the situation. However, it is worth mentioning that Mahomes has thrown for fewer passing yards in each successive game against the Chargers. Even considering that though, Mahomes can make it up with touchdowns anyway.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire probably won’t put up the eye-popping numbers he did last week considering that the Chargers’ defensive line is better than Houston’s. Of course, he’s still one of the best options at RB1 in the league this year with the number of snaps that he’s going to have.

Travis Kelce is the best fantasy receiving option for the Chiefs this week. Without Derwin James, the Chargers’ chances of locking down Kelce are not looking great. They could still end up playing great coverage on him, but it’s not nearly as guaranteed as when James is playing.

Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill are the two wide receivers with true fantasy potential in this game, barring Mecole Hardman playing more snaps. Hill struggled against the Chargers in 2019, only recording 60 yards against them in two games. The caveat to that though is that he got hurt in the Mexico game. Honestly, I’d be surprised to see a particular wideout go off in this game given how well the Chargers have contained Mahomes.

With the number of injuries piling up in the secondary, I wouldn’t give much thought to starting the Chiefs’ defense.
