Broncos vs. Chiefs Top TNF DFS Picks on DraftKings

Isiah Pacheco, RB, Kansas City Chiefs ($14,100) – Captain

Through the season’s first five games, the only reliable fantasy option that has emerged from this Kansas City offense not named Patrick Mahomes or Travis Kelce is Isiah Pacheco.

For a second consecutive week, no other running back has seen more than three carries. Clyde Edwards-Helaire hasn’t done much with this them, averaging just 2.6 yards per carry in his limited work.

Pacheco has found the end zone in three straight games and faces a Broncos defense that has allowed a mind-blowing 187 rushing yards per game this season. Expect another busy and productive day at the office for Pacheco in Week 6.

Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs ($12,800)

It feels nearly impossible to justify not having Mahomes in your showdown DFS lineup.

The temptation is always there to select him as your captain at the premium price because he can post cheat code-type stat lines weekly, but the Chiefs simply may not require Mahomes to put on the Superman cape in this contest.

I still him being productive in this game, but the game script possibly limits his otherwise limitless fantasy ceiling this week.

Russell Wilson, QB, Denver Broncos ($9,600)

Since I am predicting a game script where Kansas City has a two-possession lead in the first half, this should mean Russell Wilson will have a busy night through the air.

Quietly, Wilson has been a consistent fantasy producer this season because of the team’s tendency to fall behind due to a poor defense. Unfortunately, Wilson’s passing yardage production has declined for four consecutive weeks, but Wilson feels like a quality option to continue to put up north of 15 fantasy points on Thursday Night Football.

Adam Trautman, TE, Denver Broncos ($2,800)

Since we are paying up for both quarterback options in this contest, we will need to spend down to fill out the rest of the lineup.

It wasn’t necessarily exciting, but Adam Trautman did manage to catch four of his five targets for 26 yards and a score against the New York Jets in Week 5.

His ownership in DFS lineups is likely to be very low and could give you some decent production at a very reasonable price.

Justin Watson, WR, Kansas City Chiefs ($2,200)

Speaking of cheap options who could see some work in the passing game at a reasonable price for your fantasy football lineup, Justin Watson has quietly gone for over 45 yards receiving in four of five games this season.

The Chiefs are still rotating and using more than a handful of WRs in the pass-catching rotation. Watson feels like a quality dart throw at his current price.

Courtland Sutton, WR, Denver Broncos ($7,800)

Courtland Sutton was enjoying a bounce-back fantasy season through the first four games of the season, scoring three touchdowns on 20 receptions for 216 yards.

Unfortunately, he ran into a stringy Jets defense in Week 5, which held him to just one catch for 13 yards in Week 5.

Despite the disappointing outing, Sutton has still been very involved in the passing attack and won’t have to deal with star cornerback Sauce Gardner for a second straight game.

Expect a much busier night for Sutton in this contest.
