DFS Roundtable: Week 6 Feature Matchup

The DFS team discusses the Chiefs-Texans Week 6 game for DFS lineups

The Chiefs-Texans game offers the highest Vegas total and plenty of big DFS names for the main slate in Week 6. The storylines are numerous from Patrick Mahomes II' ankle to the health status of Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins plus the monster game from Will Fuller V in Week 5 and DeAndre Hopkins simmering without a big game since Week 1. What stands out for your DFS lineup building from this star-studded game? What stack is your favorite?

Houston at Kansas City has the potential to draw the most collective ownership of any game this season. You'll want to make sure you have some exposure to the usual suspects -- Mahomes, Kelce, Hill (assuming he plays), Watson, Hopkins, and Fuller -- across your entries. But due to the concentrated ownership, a chalky game stack has little chance of propelling you to first-place unless you get creative.

Kansas City's defense has obvious deficiencies, but they can still get feisty at Arrowhead and Deshaun Watson has been sacked 3.6 times per game this year. You can pair the Chiefs low-owned defense with Mecole Hardman, who won't be a popular play following Byron Pringle's emergence on Monday night, for a chance at double points on a Hardman kick return touchdown.

Another way to introduce some uniquity into a Chiefs stack is to pair Mahomes and Kelce/Hill with Damien Williams. Williams returned last week to lead Kansas City's committee with 80% of the team's backfield touches, including four targets. If at least one of Mahomes' touchdown throws go to Williams and he manages to run one in, you'll instantly lap a chunk of the field in tournaments.
