The Kansas City Chiefs face the Oakland Raiders in matchup where fantasy points will likely come at a premium. Both teams continue to find ways to disappoint owners, and with the semifinals of the fantasy playoffs here, you'll need to choose who to start here wisely. In order to help you set the optimal playoff lineup, we've got player projections courtesy of numberFire.
Kansas City Chiefs
After managing a whopping seven points against the Browns last week, the Chiefs aren't exactly doing your lineup any favors. Jamaal Charles is the one bright spot on this offense right now. He has three straight 100-yard games entering Week 15. We would expect him to be able to top his four-yard performance from his last meeting with Oakland.
Dwayne Bowe is out, so there goes any hope for the Chiefs passing game. Jon Baldwin didn't catch a single pass last week, and that was with Bowe missing the majority of the game. You can find a better option than Baldwin, Brady Quinn and everyone else here.
Darren McFadden gave his owners a scare after news broke that he re-injured his ankle last week, but fortunately he's back to probable status. One of his two 100-yard games this year came against the Chiefs, so he will be more than a flex play this weekend barring any setbacks.
Carson Palmer only threw for 209 yards against Kansas City in Week 8. The Chiefs have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in all but three games, though, so Palmer's value gets a boost. Denarius Moore and Darrius Heyward-Bey are both inconsistent as of late. Each had a touchdown in Week 8, but you're rolling the dice with either right now.
