You’ll learn the reason behind the picks so you can be confident setting your lineups for this week’s contests.
Alex Smith vs. Oakland Raiders $33
It feels like chasing here, and it might be, but there is no denying the matchup here is amazing at home for the Chiefs passing game. Andy Reid gave up play calling duties last week and the Chiefs anemic offense put up 31 points and Smith threw for 366 yards. The Raiders are dead last in DVOA against the Pass, and are 27th in adjusted sack rate at Football Outsiders on the season. Rookie running back Kareem Hunt seems to be an afterthought in the offense as a rookie hitting a wall, so look for the Chiefs to continue to pepper their best players in Kelce and Hill through the air in a very exploitable matchup.
