The week 13 season of Sunday Night Football features a pair of AFC West rivals that are pushing for post-season berths. The divisional captains will host the Broncos, who have returned for a game and are still on the hunt for a playoff spot. Of course, the Broncos opened as the team nine points behind, so Las Vegas sportsbooks don’t paint the picture of a disappointment. The captains have edged the Broncos 65-32 in their two games in 2020, which is why our FanDuel one-game DFS lineup leans slightly toward Kansas City. .
Here are the notable scoring settings for FanDuel’s single game competitions: The total score for “MVP” is multiplied by 1.5, but he doesn’t cost him any extra money like “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown competitions. FanDuel’s default score is Half point PPR and TDs pass four points, and have are not bonuses for 300 yard / 100 yard matches as on DraftKings.

FanDuel Single Game Choice DFS: Broncos vs. Chiefs
$60,000 budget, need at least one player from each team
MVP (1.5x points) QB Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($17,000)
Teams coached by Andy Reid have traditionally been strong at goodbye, and captains have played better defensively, both falling to Mahomes on Sunday night. He hung 36.24 FanDuel points on the Raiders in Week 10 and another monster effort could be coming for the team playing good complementary football.
FLEX TE Travis Kelce, Team Leader ($13,000)
Kelce has had a solid run, scoring 15.3, 15.9 and 16.3 FD points in his past three games, respectively. He got 26 goals in that three-week period, and we can expect another healthy dose of goals. Whenever Kelce is expected to shoulder a heavy workload, we are happy to bet on a great performance from him.
FLEX RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Team Leader ($11,000)
Edwards-Helaire turned 14 touchdowns in his first game back after a five-week absence into 14.6 FD points. He immediately returned to the Chiefs RB1 role, and with two more weeks since his injury, an even bigger performance is not out of the question.
FLEX RB Javonte Williams, Broncos ($10,500)
Williams has crossed 100 yards of script twice in the past three weeks, and his running mate, Melvin Gordon (hip), seems out of place. Many have been anxiously waiting for Williams to get his chance to run away with the lead role, and while the captains have tightened their defenses, Sunday night could be his chance to get another 20 touchdowns. .
FLEX TE Noah Fant, Broncos ($8,500)
It’s been a while since Fant halved the fantasy score figures (20.2 FD vs Las Vegas at Week 6), so he’s “due”. All jokes and cliches aside, Fant just followed Courtland Sutton on targets. Sutton, inexplicably, has fallen out of the mix in recent weeks (17 goals in his previous five games), and the Chiefs have struggled with a tight finish. Fant’s salary is modest, but a final imaginary tally of the teenage years would be within reach.
