Sportzshala Betting analyst Minty Bets joins Fantasy Football Live to offer a couple of player suggestions as the Chiefs host the Titans in Week 9.
ANDY BERENS: Let’s talk about these prime time games. Let’s start on Sunday evening. Travis Kelsey, yes or no? We are in? We went out? Are we more or less?
MINTY RATES: You will love it. I like it under his tricks at minus 130. That is, at 6 and 1/2. Although Kelsey is the third-best tight end in the league and one of Patrick Mahomes’ favorite weapons, I’m going for that number because the Tennessee defense allows for an average of about 5 receptions per game in tight ends. That defense last week only managed 23% of pass attempts last week, the best in the league. This line kind of tells me to go here. I know you’re surprised.
ANDY BERENS: Shocked, I’m just shocked. Let’s move on here and talk about Derrick Henry. He’s out with a million yards, right? He ran for over 200 yards, but it’s probably a very different scenario here against Kansas City. Do you like it here?
MINTY RATES: Yes, I like it down here. And I feel a little silly giving less because, as you said, he got over 100 yards in 4 games in a row, including a 219-yard lead against Houston. But the Chiefs don’t really have a terrible run defense, allowing roughly 4.2 yards per carry, second in fewest rushing touchdowns, and second in average yards per game. I have to do it Andy. I have this great desire to go under here. I mean, I think we’re going to see a little Derrick Henry regression, right? [LAUGHS]
