Heinicke falls into the bucket that so many other QBs do in fantasy football and that's simply a streaming option. In tougher matchups, he's not worth considering, but in games against weaker defenses, he has the potential to finish as a top-12 option. That's exactly what we have in front of us this week with Heinicke up against the Kansas City Chiefs defense. The Chiefs were expected to be a stout unit coming into the year, but they have been absolutely gashed by opposing passing games so far this season. Through five weeks, the Chiefs are allowing the second-most fantasy points to opposing QBs and they're only in front of Washington in that category. This game is going to be an offensive fireworks show and it could easily hit the over on a 55.5 line. Kansas City is allowing 308.6 passing yards per game and 30.8 fantasy points. If you have Heinicke, make sure to plug him into your starting lineup as a low-end QB1/high-end QB2. If he's available on your waiver wire still, he's absolutely worth adding and playing here.

 After stringing together three consecutive 300-yard passing games, Darnold threw for a season-low 177 yards against the Eagles in Week 5. He had one TD pass against Philadelphia and threw three interceptions. Darnold's matchup against the Vikings this week is no cakewalk. Minnesota's pass defense ranks fifth in Football Outsiders' DVOA metric, and PFF grades the Vikings ninth in both pass rush and pass coverage. Darnold is QB9 in fantasy scoring, but his five TD runs artificially inflate that number. Consider him more of a high-end QB2 for this week and steer clear in DFS.

Heinicke really struggled against New Orleans with just 248 yards passing, 0 passing TDs and 2 picks. He looks to rebound against a Chiefs D that has given up 1,482 yards and 10 passing TDs on the season.Darnold bombed this week failing to throw for 200 yards or multiple TD passes for the first time this season. He will look to bounce back against the Vikings at home this week.
