Sunday Night Football for Week 11 of the NFL season gives us an AFC West clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers.

I have two players — one from each side — to target in this game. These players aren’t the flashiest of names and are more bargain-bin guys who could surprise.

WR Justin Watson, Chiefs

Lost in the Kadarius Toney hype was the fact that Justin Watson was second among Chiefs wide receivers with a 73% route participation rate last week.

Juju Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Mecole Hardman (IR-abdomen) are out, so Watson appears slated to operate as a top-three WR. He matches up well in this spot as the Chargers play man coverage at the eighth-highest rate — Watson leads K.C. with 2.43 yards per route versus man.

RB Isaiah Spiller, Chargers

The rookie has out-snapped Sony Michel 23-19 over the past two weeks while handling 11 touches to Michel’s two.

Austin Ekeler is obviously a stud, but his backups tend to be involved and often in key spots. Ekeler has handled only 58% of the backfield carries inside the 10-yard line this season.

When these teams met in Week 2, Chargers backup backs combined for 10 touches and 44 yards with a 33% snap rate.
