Week 15: at Kansas City Chiefs

All WR vs KC

FBG says: Great matchup. Two of the top big-play passing offense meet this week as Phillip Rivers and the Chargers rank just behind the Chiefs with the second-highest yards per pass attempt while Rivers ranks fifth in passing touchdowns behind the first-place Patrick Mahomes. Rivers had passed for multiple touchdowns in every game leading up to last week, but his streak came to an end against the Bengals as the red zone proved to be a challenge for Rivers and company to navigate. Keenan Allen was the recipient of that one touchdown last week though, as Allen has now developed a streak of his own with at least 57 receiving yards and a touchdown in five straight games. Allen had a relatively slow start to the season for his standards, averaging just below six receptions and 72 receiving yards per game with one touchdown thru Week 8 leading to ranking 26th in PPR scoring amongst wide receivers. In the second half of the season, since Week 9, some softer matchups and increased focus from Rivers has led to Allen averaging just under eight receptions and 95 receiving yards per game with five touchdowns, vaulting him to the third-ranked fantasy wide receiver in PPR scoring in the last six weeks. The long-awaited return of top Chiefs safety Eric Berry will finally happen this week barring any pre-game setbacks. This Chiefs secondary will be welcoming him with open arms as they currently rank worst in the league with 282 passing yards allowed--in part due to the pass-heavy game scripts they so often find themselves in. They have been particularly weak in coverage in the middle of the field with both tight ends and running backs producing at high levels when facing the Chiefs--a testament to how poor the play by their safeties and linebackers has been. Coverage by their cornerbacks on the outside has been marginally better though, as touchdowns from opposing wide receivers have been kept to a minimum while production from outside receivers has at least been held to average levels. If Berry can return at even a partial percentage of his old self, it will help significantly as the Chargers can be very dangerous with Keenan Allen on those short routes from the slot to dominate the middle of the field. The matchup in the trenches cannot be ignored in this one either though, as the Chargers have an impressive offensive line that has held Phillip Rivers upright the majority of this season while the Chiefs rank second in sacks with at least three sacks in four straight games. These Chiefs pass rushers led by Justin Houston has been absolutely relentless even against strong offensive lines such as the Rams recently, so they get the edge in that matchup especially with the rookie Justin Jackson likely to pick up blocking duties if he is the only healthy running back for the Chargers.
