3. Tyreek Hill- Receptions (6.5)
To be honest, I’m not sure why this line would be this low. Hill only had 5 receptions in the first game here, but the Chargers can put up points in a hurry and the Chiefs are likely going to feel far more pressure to move the chains and keep up the offensive momentum than they have in several weeks. The defense has put opposing teams on the ropes early so the Chiefs have kept Hill’s targets lower than ever lately but this game should see a significant rebound.
Remember, too, that Josh Gordon is on the Chiefs COVID protocol list and it’s uncertain whether or not he’ll play. While Gordon is not a big recipient of targets by any means, if he cannot play, it’s just another player taken out of the rotation. The Chiefs have forced a lot of things to Hill and Travis Kelce all season long and they might be forced to do it again against the Chargers.
Expect Hill to earn enough targets to take the over on this total.
Pick: Over (-135)
