DFS Wide Receiver #1 – Gabe Davis – $6,000
Gabe Davis is coming off a huge game, posting a madden-like first half with two catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns, including a 98-yard bomb from Josh Allen on the first drive of the game. These numbers aren’t completely foreign to Davis, who had a massive game against a familiar foe last year in the playoffs. It just so happens the Bills face that familiar foe on Sunday when they visit KC.

Davis torched KC in the AFC divisional round last year for 200 yards and FOUR touchdowns. We obviously can’t expect one game to indicate all future performances, but this is a nice little data point to fall back on when making your NFL DFS wide receiver decisions this week.
He is the #2 WR to Stefon Diggs in the best offense in the NFL by a wide margin, against a team that left a bad taste in their mouth at the end of last season. If the Bills ever have a reason to run up the score, I imagine it would be this week. Look for Davis, Allen, and the Bills to roll in KC, with Davis having another huge day.
DFS Wide Receiver #2 – Marquez Valdes-Scantling – $4,500
The Chiefs WRs have been underwhelming to start the season, with new acquisition Juju Smith-Schuster doing close to nothing on a weekly basis to start the season.
This week, as mentioned above, we have the high-powered Chiefs offense, who could potentially be playing from behind the entire game if the Bills play like I expect them to. This opens the door for their receiving options, and I’m looking at MVS here at a discounted price tag, coming off a serviceable game on Monday night.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling set a season high with 90 reception yards, 26 yards after catch, and 5 first downs.

MVS hauled in six balls for 90 yards, looking like one of Mahomes’ favorite targets. While that is reassuring, he does still carry some boom/bust risk, but that is mitigated with the cheap $4,500 price tag.
This allows you to get a cheap piece of the BUF/KC NFL DFS options into your lineups and works great as a runback to Allen/Davis stacks. Look for MVS to make an impact Sunday against the Bills.
DFS Wide Receiver #3 – Rondale Moore – $4,400
Our third play here is another price-based play, with Moore coming in at a very affordable 4.4K. Despite a promising start to the season from Greg Dortch, it appears he has been stapled to the bench in favor of Moore, who came back from injury and rather immediately took all of Dortch’s work. For that reason, he is way too cheap in an offense that still lacks DeAndre Hopkins.

Moore was targeted eight times last Sunday, hauling in seven of them for 68 yards. Moore is explosive, and his speed creates a lot of big-play upside, which we love to target for DFS purposes.
He even rushed twice, albeit for a loss of seven yards, but we care more about opportunity than results when trying to pinpoint these plays. We can only put ourselves in good positions, and after that, we need the players to perform.
I will take some chances on cheap Moore shares this week, as I love cheap players who offer immense upside, something that Moore certainly has. Combine that with the salary savings and what it opens up for the rest of your team, as well as a great matchup with Seattle, and it sets up for a great spot for Moore.
