Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 6

Last week's Bears/Commanders tilt has a lot more offense than projected. That's a good thing for fantasy football. Speaking of offense, this week's AFC West battle offers much potential. The FullTime Fantasy Thursday Night Football Preview: Week 6 looks at the Chiefs vs. Broncos game from a fantasy football, DFS, and sports betting lens.
Andy Reid's defending champions are off to another fast start. Kansas City sits atop the AFC West standings with a 4-1 record. That includes winning four straight after losing in the first Thursday night game of 2023.
Meanwhile, the Broncos are reeling. Sean Payton's squad sits in the basement of the division at 1-4. There are rumblings that change is on the way in Denver. The Broncos defense has been atrocious and this has been a one-sided rivalry.
Because of that, the Chiefs are 10.5-point favorites. However, we've seen the over/under drop from 51 down to 47.5.

Both teams are above average on offense. However, that is where the similarities end. Denver has allowed 181 points. That is the sixth-most in NFL history through the first five games.
Patrick Mahomes boasts an 11-0 record against the Broncos. Conversely, Denver has allowed an NFL-worst 13 touchdown passes in 2023. It is easy to see why Vegas likes Kansas City in this...
