Let's throw some darts!
Mostert went off last weekend. After fellow running back Tevin Coleman went down with a dislocated shoulder, Mostert rushed 29 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns.
If you're looking for a way to cap the first touchdown scorer, lean toward who's getting the ball around the goal line, right? Well, Mostert only received nine red-zone carries during the regular season, then he benefited from Coleman's absence last weekend. Look elsewhere.
I took Aaron Rodgers over 13.5 rushing yards last week against the 49ers, and I finished with more yards. I'm now convinced there's an invisible force field at the line of scrimmage prohibiting quarterbacks from getting past the Niners. Or maybe San Francisco's defense is just that good. I wouldn't rule out either of those possibilities.
Mahomes made an impact with his legs last weekend against the Titans, slicing up Tennessee for 53 yards and a touchdown. Perhaps it's recency bias, but this price feels way off. San Francisco's defense allowed quarterbacks to score only three regular-season rushing touchdowns, and Mahomes has notched just three in 18 games this campaign. I'd pass.
The coaching staff sounds optimistic about Coleman playing, which makes this bet automatic.
He was given 26 rushing attempts inside the 20-yard line - 10 more than the next-leading 49er - and was third on the team in red-zone targets during the regular season. I simply think there's too much value here.
Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman don't know how to score on a play that doesn't resemble "Da Bomb" from "NFL Blitz 2000." Then there's Sammy Watkins, who was given a whopping six red-zone targets during the regular season, and I don't like Mahomes at his price.
By process of elimination with the Chiefs, we're left with Kelce, who tops the team in red-zone targets and faces a defense that's allowed seven receptions per game to tight ends over its last four contests.
Plus, he's probably thought of a sweet touchdown celebration. That has to count for something.
