3.) Rashee Rice vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Heading to this Super Bowl matchup from last season, this will be the first time the rookie wideout Rashee Rice will face the Eagles. While Rice has not been anything like a superstar, he provides stability to a wide receiver group that is the weakest under the Patrick Mahomes era. The last two weeks, Rice has just fallen under 10+ fantasy points but he has not seen a true drop in numbers since Week 4 against the New York Jets.

While the Eagles have a strong secondary, there have been times this season where they have been burned on the outside to receivers. The main target for the Chiefs’ offense will always be tight end Travis Kelce, but Rice has slowly developed into a true receiving option for Mahomes. Depending on which Eagles’ secondary shows up, Rice could be in for some targets. This can be considered a big risk/big reward move but when Mahomes is your quarterback, your ceiling is always going to be higher.
