Washington running back J.D. McKissic could be a bigger player in fantasy football if Antonio Gibson's shin injury causes him more problems. He had to leave Sunday's game twice because of the injury.

What to watch on offense: 1) Antonio Gibson. The Chiefs rank 29th vs. the run. They have allowed 5.12 yards per carry in the first half of games, though only 2.85 in the past three. But if you play the possession game, it only works if you finish with TDs. 2) Chief's DL. Without DT Chris Jones, it's not a good one. More reason to run the ball. 3) Taylor Heinicke. The Chiefs have allowed 22 pass plays for 20 yards or more, tied for 5th most in the NFL. But he must be smart with the ball.

What to watch on defense: 1) Coverage scheme. The Bills played a cover-2 and did it well. The Eagles did that the week before and did not. Washington can use a mix or use single-high with a safety or linebacker shading the middle to take away crossers, etc. 2) Crazy plays. Pat Mahomes will throw anywhere at anytime from any angle. The ends must work in conjunction to keep him bottled up. 3) Speed. Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman have plenty. Don't lose sight of Travis Kelce (use Kam Curl on him).

Washington inactives: WR Curtis Samuel, WR Cam Sims, CB Corn Elder, G Brandon Scherff , T Sam Cosmi, TE Jace Sternberger. As expected WR Terry McLaurin and RB Antonio Gibson will play. But Washington will have two new starters on the right side of the line — G Wes Schweitzer and T Cornelius Lucas. Both are experienced veterans.
