  • Eric Berry could make his 2018 debut in the Kansas City Chiefs' showdown against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football (8:20 p.m. on FOX/NFL Network/Amazon Prime).
  • See how much his return would impact the game for the Chiefs, who have failed to cover in back-to-back games.

Every week I leverage my experience as a high school football coach and fantasy analyst with a statistics background to help you find an advantage when setting your fantasy football lineups and placing your bets.

This week we’re focusing on the AFC West showdown featuring the Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (-3.5) on Thursday Night Football.

Return of the King

This matchup has massive implications for the AFC playoff picture.

The Chargers are a game back from the Chiefs in the division race. Making it even more important is that the Chiefs and Chargers are first and second in the AFC in wins, respectively, which means the division winner could secure home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, while the other will have to play on the road in the first round.

The importance of this game cannot be overstated.
