Chiefs fantasy football advice for Week 3 vs. the Packers

Here are two Chiefs fantasy football plays I will be considering in the Arrowhead Pride Week 3 Fanduel league. CLICK HERE to join our league.

I like my chances with Jamaal Charles this week but I don't like the Chiefs defense against the Packers.

The Chiefs will be visiting the Packers next Monday night. A key to the game will be not allowing the Packers to get carried away with how quickly they score. The Chiefs need to control the time of possession. They can't win in a shootout but they can hope to keep it low scoring and have a shot in the end. Therefore, I see Jamaal Charles being an important part of this game plan - as he always is. Jamaal needs to have plenty of work in this game in order for the Chiefs to methodically move down the field.

The Chiefs defense would not be a fantasy play for me this week. Just look to the ending to last week's game against the Broncos to show you some of the vulnerabilities in the secondary with CB Sean Smith out. Anyone who is playing their fourth cornerback will have problems against Aaron Rodgers. Expect the Chiefs to have those problems in Green Bay next week.

I also like Travis Kelce because, like Jamaal, you need to consider playing him every week.

For the Chiefs sake, I hope this doesn't turn into a shootout. Your fantasy team might disagree.
