Just a week after signing with the Chiefs, wide receiver Josh Gordon has been promoted to the active roster. He is expected to play on Sunday Night Football, which would be his first NFL game in nearly two years. Daily Fantasy football owners are likely tempering their expectations for Gordon, but he could emerge as an immediate red zone option for Kansas City. The Chiefs are searching for another wideout to pair with Tyreek Hill and Gordon could provide more NFL DFS value than the likes of Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson.
Is Gordon worth rostering in NFL DFS lineups for Chiefs vs. Bills? Gordon posted 85 yards in his first game back following a three-year absence back in 2017. Thus, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that he picks up where he left off and is a top NFL DFS pick from the jump. Before locking in your NFL DFS strategy for Bills vs. Chiefs, be sure to check out the NFL DFS advice, player rankings, stacks and top daily Fantasy football picks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.
McClure is a legendary professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings. His methodology has led to enormous cashes on FanDuel and DraftKings. He took down two high-stakes tournaments on FanDuel in 2020 and recorded a pair top-10 finishes in tournaments with over 130,000 entrants on DraftKings. His lineups also finished inside the top 1 percent in more than a dozen other tournaments last season.
He uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every snap of NFL action, taking factors such as matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best DFS values that he shares only with members at SportsLine.
Now, McClure has turned his attention to Chiefs vs. Bills and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see them by heading to SportsLine.
Top NFL DFS picks for Bills vs. Chiefs
One of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Sunday Night Football is Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. It’s hard to believe considering the success he’s already had, but Mahomes is off to the best start of his career. He leads the NFL with 14 passing touchdowns, which puts him on pace to break the league’s single-season TD mark. He would be on pace to break Peyton Manning’s record of 55 TDs even over a 16-game season, much less a 17-game schedule.
Mahomes has tossed at least three touchdowns in every game this season and the 2018 NFL MVP carved up Buffalo’s defense last season. In two games against the Bills, Mahomes threw five touchdowns, zero interceptions and averaged 275 passing yards. Confidently lock Mahomes in your NFL DFS lineups and look for a big return against Buffalo.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Bills QB Josh Allen. The 25-year-old had a rough start to the year but has recently flashed the form that resulted in his runner-up finish in 2020 MVP voting. Allen averaged over 300 passing yards and 25 rushing yards over the last two weeks, while accounting for seven total touchdowns.
Allen singlehandedly nearly led Buffalo to the Super Bowl last year with his performance vs. the Chiefs in the AFC title game. He passed for 287 yards and two scores while also rushing for 88 yards as he accounted for 89 percent of Buffalo’s total yards. He should have an easier go of it on Sunday Night Football as the Chiefs are among the league’s worst defenses this year, ranking 31st both in points allowed and yards allowed per game.
