The Chiefs have a short week after losing last week to the Philadelphia Eagles at home, but get a good landing spot against the Las Vegas Raiders and its poor defense.
The Chiefs wide receivers dropped several key passes in the team's loss last week, but will look to bounce back against the Raiders defense. Will Patrick Mahomes target his reliable pass catchers like Travis Kelce more following the loss?

Travis Kelce (-130)
Despite a crucial fumble last week, Kelce is incredibly sure-handed and Mahomes favorite target by a wide margin. He has 81 targets on the year this season, but has quietly not been too active in the end zone this season, catching only five touchdowns on the year.
However, given the need to get back on track, I expect Kelce to figure into the game plan heavily. He has eight or more targets in all but one game that he has played this season. With question marks around the Chiefs passing game, I'll back the most reliable one to find the end zone.
Justin Watson (+300)
Wastson played more snaps thatn any Chiefs wide receiver last week and has played 60% or more in each of the last two as he continues to emerg as a key cog in this KC passing game, including snaring a touchdown grab.
Watson only has 19 catches on the year, but his usage is up over the last two, getting five targets against the Dolphins and then a season high 11 last week against the Eagles. With Watson's numbers going up, I think there is still some value on him to find the end zone.
Chiefs Defense (+650)
In five starts this season, O'Connell has six interceptions, including three last week against the Dolphins. The rookie has been putting the ball up for grabs for defenders all season for Las Vegas, and now faces a Chiefs team that is top five in EPA/Play and is due for some more takeaways, just 14 this season, bottom half of the league.
With questions building for the Chiefs skill position players, I'll opt to go with the KC defense to help jumpstart the team's bounce back effort.
