Mahomes has tough matchup. Ben has been better on the road this yr and has a ++ matchup. Trust Mahomes is "matchup proof"?


Ekeler and Jackson make me nervous due to potential for even split, I almost like Jackson more b/c Ekeler poor #s as starter and report that he is "wearing down", +++++ matchup.

Would you start both???


Down on Mixon b/c of poor supporting cast (no Dalton, AJG) and likely game script away from the run.


Ware is a possible start at Flex but tough matchup, not overly impressive last wk.


Diggs played through knee injury last week but with down #s and still dealing with knee. Monday night game. Start Humphries, Pettis, Jones instead??


Any advise would be appreciated.

Thanks and good luck.

That's a tough call at QB, but I think Mahomes is still the start.

I'd also avoid the Chargers backfield and start Mixon instead. I don't trust committees this time of year, and it sounds like Mixon will have his normal workload.

Diggs is a solid WR2 still, I'd start him unless he's all the sudden ruled out.
