KCC @LAR:  Got a pair of matchups this week that should feature a TON of passing and scoring.  One such matchup has moved from Mexico City back to Los Angeles.  Being on quality turf will help the passing game.  Obviously both QBs are great starts, with Mahomes being the preferred option.  Both QBs should top 300 passing yards quite easily.  Pass catchers that will be in the “great” category include Brandin Cooks, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.  There will be some good fringe plays too, with Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins providing solid output.  And if you need a sleeper, Josh Reynolds, who takes Cooper Kupp’s spot, could be a decent play.  Great Starts:  Mahomes, Jared Goff, Cooks, Hill, Kelce  Good Starts:  Woods and Watkins  Sleeper:  Reynolds

PHI @NOS:  Another matchup that should feature QBs topping 300 yards and multiple scores is the Eagles visiting the Saints.  Drew Brees has been money, and especially at home.  Carson Wentz has been solid and has no run game to speak of, and the Saints give up the 2nd-most fantasy points to QBs.  Pass catching wise, it’s Michael Thomas and no one else for the Saints.  Alshon Jeffery should turn in a solid game for the Eagles, but everyone else is a dice roll.  Well, maybe that Zach Ertz guy could turn in some big plays.  Great Starts:  Brees, Wentz, Thomas, Jeffery and Ertz  Good Starts:  Golden Tate, Nelson Agholor  Dice Rolls:  Tre’Quan Smith, Keith Kirkwood, Brandon Marshall, Jordan Matthews



LAC vs. DEN:  This could be a huge effort for Melvin Gordon.  The Broncos’ overly-aggressive front seven will be all keyed on stopping Philip Rivers, giving plenty of room for Gordon to run free.  The Broncos rank in the bottom-third in terms of allowing fantasy points to RBs.  Gordon should easily top 100 total yards and score twice (at least).  Austin Ekeler is a decent flex play.  Great Start:  Gordon  Flex Play (PPR):  Ekeler

ARI vs. OAK:  The Raiders are terrible and David Johnson has at least been finding the end zone recently.  He should find paydirt at least once this week, and should post healthy yardage against these Raiders, especially at home.  He’ll easily top 100 total yards, and will add at least 3-4 catches.  This could be a huge impetus push for Johnson as the season winds down, and looking towards 2019 with Byron Leftwich calling plays and incorporating his best weapon.  Great Start:  Johnson
