Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin
Bengals LT Jonah Williams (knee) and RG Alex Cappa (ankle) are out for the AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs. The Bengals will be without to critical pieces to their offensive line as they take on a Kansas City defense that ranked 19th in QB pressure rate during the regular season. Joe Burrow fared well in the Divisional Round against the Bills without Cappa and Williams. He was sacked just once while getting the ball out quickly. Expect more of the same this week against the Chiefs.
Kansas City Chiefs DFS Spin
Travis Kelce (back) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship against the Bengals. He practiced in full all week but was added to the injury report and the questionable line on Friday in a somewhat ominous sign. He also did not talk to the media in a scheduled Friday availability per James Palmer because he was undergoing treatment. This is an interesting last-minute wrench for the Chiefs, but we'd lean on expecting Kelce to play despite the status until we hear more detailed reports.
