4.) Isiah Pacheco scores 20+ points

The last time the Chiefs played against the Denver Broncos, it was a low-scoring 19-8 victory in favor of the Chiefs. While Patrick Mahomes did not look like himself, running back Isiah Pacheco rushed for 62 yards, but did add 6 receptions which made him valuable in PPR leagues. With the two teams visiting each other within two weeks, both teams know each other better than ever this season. 

Pacheco has established himself as a true bullrunner that is not afraid of contact. If Mahomes and the pass-attack have a tough time getting off to a strong start, Pacheco could see more involvement in this game. While he did not have a high ceiling in terms of fantasy in the first matchup, this is the time of year where running backs could get more involvement than before. It also helps that this game is in Denver and weather could be a factor.
