3 best contrarian DFS plays for Chiefs-49ers Super Bowl matchup

The Super Bowl is the biggest game of the year. It's also the day where fantasy football players, still looking to get their hands on one more win for the season, have one last chance to set a DFS lineup.

Kadarius Toney, WR, Kansas City Chiefs- $1400

Can you imagine this story?

This would be a gamble as there is no guarantee that Kadarius Toney even plays in this game. He has not played in a game since December 17 as the Chiefs have listed him as a gameday inactive for the past several weeks. The team said it was injury-related, but Toney, in an expletive-filled rant, seemed to refute that.

Toney caught just 27 passes for the Chiefs this season and he was ridiculed for several dropped passes and this offsides penalty that erased one of the best plays of the season.

But if Toney plays in this game, he'll have the chance to redeem himself in the biggest of ways. One bettor seems to believe in Toney or really wants to take a deep stab in the dark. But again, if you want to separate yourself from the pack, this is the kind of player you need.

While the majority of the players in your contest can focus on his drops and negative plays this season, you could choose to see it as a glass-half-full situation and remember that just one year ago, Toney set a Super Bowl record for the longest punt return ever in the game.
