Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chiefs are 2nd against fantasy wide receivers, but Edelman should still be a low-end WR1 in a game where they are probably going to have to throw the ball a lot to keep up with the Chiefs offense.The Chargers are 4th against fantasy wide receivers, but Chark is still a WR2 option with Gardner Minshew II back under center.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's seen 10-plus targets in seven straight games and that's unlikely to end this week. He's the one Brady looks to when he's in trouble, and the one who's had plenty of success even through Brady's struggles. Not many will believe this, and I even did a double-take when I saw it, but the Chiefs have allowed the third-fewest points to the wide receiver position. Are they that good? Not necessarily. They've faced just 189 wide receiver targets (15.8 per game) on the season, which is the second-fewest behind only the Chargers. On a per-target basis, they're pretty average. In the slot, they're below average, which is where Edelman runs 67 percent of his routes. Their cornerbacks/safeties have combined to allow 75-of-106 passing for 726 yards and five touchdowns in the slot. They got Kendall Fuller back from injury last week, but he's been the weakest link in the secondary. It's obviously not one of the best matchups in the league, but it's not as bad as some may think. Edelman should be in lineups as a low-end WR1/high-end WR2.It's so hard to tell what's good or what's bad for Chark nowadays, as Foles targeted him 15 times in their first game, leading us to believe he'd raise Chark's value. Over the last two weeks, in plus matchups, he finished with just seven catches for 85 yards in the two games combined. He has Minshew back under center, which is likely a good thing, but the matchup against the Chargers is a tough one. They've allowed just one 100-yard receiver all season, and that was Kenny Golladay all the way back in Week 2. In fact, they've allowed just six wide receivers to finish better than the WR29 all season. That's a bit ridiculous. There have been just six receivers who've hit the 13-PPR-point threshold, which ranks as the second-best mark in the league, behind only the Patriots who've allowed five. You're likely going to see Casey Hayward cover Chark much of the day, and that's not a good thing. He's allowed just 20-of-39 passing for 258 yards in his coverage this year, and though he allowed two touchdowns to Courtland Sutton last week, he was right there where he was supposed to be in coverage, but Sutton just played out of his mind. You should dial back expectations for Chark in this tough matchup, as he should be considered a high-end WR3 rather than the borderline WR1 we thought he was.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Edelman has seen double-digit targets in all but three weeks this season, including in each of the last seven weeks. This game may quickly evolve into a shootout, too, so he should be in line for a lot of work, as usual.Chark has 47 yards or less in three of his last four games, but Gardner Minshew is back at QB, and Chark saw most of his success with the mustachioed signal caller behind center. Consider him a strong WR2.
