Sunday Night Football’s Week 13 installment features a pair of AFC West rivals vying for postseason spots. The division-leading Chiefs will host the Broncos, who are one game behind and still chasing a playoff spot. Of course, the Broncos started as nine-point underdogs, so the Las Vegas sportsbooks aren’t painting the picture of a surprise. The Chiefs outscored the Broncos 65-32 in their two games in 2020, so our single-game DFS FanDuel lineup leans slightly in favor of Kansas City. .
Here are the notable scoring settings for single-game FanDuel contests: Total points for the “MVP” are multiplied by 1.5, but it does not cost additional money as the “Captain” in DraftKings Showdown contests. The default FanDuel score is Semicircular PPR and Four-point pass TD, and here they are no bonuses for 300 yard / 100 yard games like in DraftKings.

FanDuel Single Game DFS Picks: Broncos vs. Chiefs
$ 60,000 budget, needs at least one player from each team
MVP (1.5x points) QB Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($ 17,000)
The teams coached by Andy Reid are traditionally strong after the break, and the Chiefs have been playing better defensively, with both playing at the hands of Mahomes on Sunday night. He hung 36.24 FanDuel points on the Raiders in Week 10, and another monster effort could be on the horizon with the team playing some good complementary football.
FLEX TE Travis Kelce, Chiefs ($ 13,000)
Kelce has had a solid streak, scoring 15.3, 15.9 and 16.3 FD points, respectively, in his last three games. He received 26 targets during that three-week span, and we can reasonably expect another healthy dose of targets. Whenever Kelce is slated for a heavy workload, we are happy to bet on a great performance on his part.

FLEX RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Chiefs ($ 11,000)
Edwards-Helaire converted 14 touches in his first game of a five-week absence to 14.6 FD points. He was immediately back in the position of Chiefs RB1, and with another two weeks away from his injury, an even greater performance is not out of the question.

FLEX RB Javonte Williams, Broncos ($ 10,500)
Williams has eclipsed 100 yards of hitting twice in the past three weeks, and it seems unlikely his running mate Melvin Gordon (hip) is a good fit. Many have eagerly awaited Williams for a chance to flee with the title role, and while the Chiefs have been toughened up defensively, Sunday night could be their chance for more than 20 touches.
WEEK 13 DFS: Best values | Best Stacks | Lineup Creator
FLEX TE Noah Fant, Broncos ($ 8,500)
It’s been a while since Fant broke double figures in fantasy scoring (20.2 FD points vs. Las Vegas in Week 6), so he’s “due.” Jokes and cliches aside, Fant just follows Courtland Sutton on her goals. Sutton has inexplicably stepped out of the mix in recent weeks (17 goals in his previous five games), and the Chiefs have struggled with tight ends. Fant’s salary is modest, but a teenage final fantasy retelling should be within reach.
