I have four primetime plays – two from each team – to consider. These players aren’t the flashiest of names and are more bargain-bin plays who could surprise.
RB Rachaad White, TB
Offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich said he wants to get White more involved. The rookie is averaging 3.3 touches per game, so more involved could mean 6-8 touches, which is valuable on a one-game slate at near minimum price.
TE Cameron Brate, TB
Brate has run a route on 77% of Tom Brady’s dropbacks this season. He faces a Chiefs defense that has allowed TDs on 23% of the catches allowed to TEs this season.
RB Isiah Pacheco, KC
Pacheco leads the team with three carries inside the 10. The first two came in garbage time in Week 1, but the third came at the Indianapolis two-yard line in the third quarter of a 14-10 game last week.
Pacheco’s role will only grow as the season progresses. He is also the primary kick returner, which gives him a few extra opportunities to score.
WR Skyy Moore, KC
Andy Reid said he wants to get Moore more involved, but it hasn’t come to fruition yet. It might have happened last week, but he muffed a punt early on.
If Moore can limit backbreaking special teams blunders, he could see more of the field in this one, especially since Mecole Hardman (heel) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) both missed practice time this week. Assuming Moore retains his role as punt returner, that also gives him a few extra cracks at a TD.
