Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

Final: KC 35-24

Spread: KC -7

O/U: Over

 

After trailing early the Chiefs took the lead in the second quarter and never looked back outscoring the Titans 28-14 over the rest of the game. The Chiefs were able to limit running back Derrick Henry to just 69 yards on 19 carries after Henry had rushed for 182 and 195 yards over the prior two games. The Chiefs head to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years with this victory.

Fantasy Studs

Patrick Mahomes – This is an easy one as Mahomes threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns while also leading the team with 53 yards rushing and another score of his own. The rushing touchdown was a highlight reel play which saw him break multiple tackles on the 27-yard scamper.

Sammy Watkins – You are reading this correct. Sammy Watkins was a STUD in this one as he caught a team best seven passes for 114 yards and a touchdown. Watkins has always had tremendous upside but injury and inconsistent play rarely made him more than a bit player, but this game was quite the exception.

Tyreek Hill – He didn’t have the gaudiest numbers but finding the end zone twice is great for the fantasy production. Hill caught five passes for 67 yards in this one with the aforementioned two touchdowns.

Damien Williams – Williams finished with 99 total yards and a touchdown against the Titans totaling 17 carries for 45 yards and a score while adding five catches for 44 yards.

Fantasy Duds

Derrick Henry – As mentioned above, Henry was limited to just 69 yards and 3.6 yards per carry in this one after steamrolling over his prior two opponents. Game flow certainly wasn’t his friend in this one either as the Titans found themselves playing from behind for most of the game including the entire second half.

A.J. Brown – It’s probably unfair but the facts are that the Titans trailed most of this game and needed to throw and Brown could only manage three catches for 51 yards on six targets. The rookie was boom or bust for most of this season and while he certainly has some promise in year two, he did not come through in this game when the team could have used a playmaker.

Ryan Tannehill – I mean he did all that he could and it’s probably not fair to call him a dud but he was not able to bring his team back against the Chiefs as he completed 21-of-31 passes for just 209 yards and two scores. The Titans offense isn’t built to stretch the field and Tannehill has his own limitations to deal with.

Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers

Venue: Levi's Stadium(Santa Clara)Sun. 1-19 @ 6:40 pm ESTOver/Under: 46.5

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

Levi’s Stadium

Finals: SF 37-20

Spread: -7.5

O/U: Over

 

This game was never close as the 49ers smothered the Packers on defense and ran all over them on offense. San Francisco lead at half time 27-0 and though the Packers answered right after halftime the 49ers also found the end zone and with the score 34-7 heading into the fourth quarter it was largely academic that the 49ers would be heading to the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Studs

Raheem Mostert – I mean this was the ballgame right here. Mostert took over for an injured Tevin Coleman and went on to have a historic performance, rushing for 220 yards and four scores on 29 carries. He was the offense as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo attempted juts eight total passes.

Davante Adams – The Packers had no choice but to throw which meant Adams was going to get his looks and he converted 11 targets into nine catches for 138 yards. Adams failed to find the end zone in this one.

Aaron Jones – Jones carried the ball 12 times for 56 yards and a score while adding five catches for 27 yards and another touchdown. Though able to find running room, the Packers were just too far behind in this game for him to get anything going consistently.

Fantasy Duds

Jimmy Garoppolo – I mean, the waterboy could have done what Jimmy G did in this game. Just eight pass attempts? I understand the team had no reason to do anything other than run the football given the Packers paper mache approach to defense in this one but still, what a tough showing.

Aaron Rodgers – You may look at his stats and see 326 yards and two scores and think it couldn’t have been that bad but facts are Rodgers was just as responsible for this team’s blowout loss than anybody else. Rodgers threw two interceptions and fumble three times, losing one of them. In a game where the Packers needed Rodgers to come up big he did not.

49ers TE/WRs – It’s not really their fault, what can you expect from them when the QB only attempted eight passes with two of those going to the running back Mostert. Kittle had just one catch for 19 yards. Deebo Samuel lead the two with two catches for 46 yards and Emmanuel Sanders had zero catches on one target. If anybody stood out, at least Samuel added 43 yards rushing as well but overall we have a big thumbs down here.
