 This is going to be a great test for Rivers and the Chargers offense in order to make sure things are different than they've been in years past. What do I mean by that? Rivers has choked against the Chiefs for three straight years. Here are his passing yards and touchdowns from each of their last seven games: 237/0, 269/2, 243/1, 263/0, 178/0, 291/0, 205/2. He's failed to top 14.9 fantasy points against them since way back in 2013. Keep in mind that during that stretch, Rivers has had some pretty amazing streaks, including the one he's on now, but with this being a divisional game against an Andy Reid-led team who has had his number, expectations need to be tempered. On top of that, this game will take place in Kansas City, which happens to be one of the toughest places to play in the NFL. The Chiefs do allow plenty of points on the road, but they allow more than seven points less at home. This game will also be during primetime, so you know the crowd will be as loud as ever. Again, this Chargers team is playing as good as they have in quite some time, so I'm not going to say that Rivers is unplayable, but he's more of a high-end QB2 this week and one that I'd avoid in DFS.

It certainly wasn't pretty, but Wilson once again came through for fantasy owners last weekend against Jacksonville, throwing for 271 yards and three touchdowns with an additional 50 yards rushing. Though he did throw three interceptions, he firmly established himself as entirely matchup-proof. The Rams are tough on opposing quarterbacks but, as Carson Wentz showed last week, they have plenty of vulnerabilities through the air that can be exploited by an elite QB. Expect Wilson to continue his eight-game streak of throwing multiple touchdown passes, and for him to once again be one of the top options on Sunday.

The Rams are coming off a very poor defensive showing against the Philadelphia Eagles and Wilson should be able to have high QB1 status against their defense.Rivers has a fantastic matchup against a Chiefs D that is 25th against fantasy quarterbacks.
