The Chicago Bears have landed the top spot in the 2024 NFL Draft thanks to a trade with the Carolina Panthers which they would surely like to take back now.

Optimal DFS Lineup for the Super Bowl Showdown Slate

Mark Morales-Smith Feb 9th 9:52 AM EST. Edited 9:52 AM.

With only one game being played this week, there are going to be a lot of similar-looking DFS lineups on this showdown slate. This is how we are approaching the optimal lineup. First, you have to decide on a game plan. You can't own the entire Chiefs' offense and then plug in the 49ers defense. It just doesn't make sense.

Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl Player Props: Patrick Mahomes, Isiah Pacheco, Rashee Rice and More

Fantasy football season may be over for most of us, but we can still watch our favorite players, gamble and make prop bets.

Fantasy Football 2024 ADP Risers: Jordan Love, Kyren Williams, D.J. Moore, David Njoku and More

Mark Morales-Smith Feb 2nd 9:57 AM EST. Edited 9:58 AM.

The fantasy season is over so now it's on to 2024. Mock drafts are already taking place. It was a great season for us, but it was even better for the players that we drafted. There are plenty of players who had an unexpectedly awesome year for whatever reason and it will cause their ADP to climb in 2024 from where it was in 2023. For the sake of this article, we will be excluding rookies.

The fantasy season is over so now it's on to 2024. Mock drafts are already taking place. It was a great season for us, but it wasn't for the players that we drafted. There are plenty of players who had a down year for whatever reason and it will cause their ADP to drop in 2024 from where it was in 2023. 

Super Bowl LVIII Matchup: San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs Early Look

Super Bowl LVIII

San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs

Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada

Sunday, Feb. 11, 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS

The big game is finally here and we get an all red Super Bowl. The Chiefs will look to defend their championship against the 49ers, who have been dominant for the majority of the season. That wasn't the case for the Chiefs, who suffered through a frustrating season but are still one of the last two teams standing in the end. This is a game that is going to be tough to predict with the best team in the NFC going up against the best quarterback in the world. Vegas has the Niners favored by two points in what is expected to be a classic matchup. These teams match up fairly evenly across the board with each other. It will be intriguing the chess moves these two great coaches make with their outstanding defenses and explosive offenses. 

NFL Playoffs: Top Stories and Injuries for Conference Championship Weekend

Kansas City Chiefs

Joe Thuney ruled out for Sunday

Thuney will not play this week due to a pectoral injury. While this was fully expected, it's also a major blow to the Chiefs' offense. He is an All-Pro offensive guard and a key piece of the Chiefs' offensive line. There is still a chance that he would be able to play in the Super Bowl should the Chiefs advance past the Baltimore Ravens this week.  

Best Bets for AFC Championship Game: Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Travis Kelce and More

Kansas City Chiefs @ Baltimore Ravens

Sunday, Jan. 28, 3 p.m. on CBS

This could be the game of the year. The Ravens have steamrolled their way to the AFC Championship Game while crushing every top team that has been placed in front of them along the way. The Chiefs on the other hand have never looked more vulnerable than they have this season. It's been a real struggle for Patrick Mahomes and the offense. However, the Chiefs' defense has never been better. The same can be said for the Ravens during the Lamar Jackson era. Speaking of Jackson, he is the heavy front-runner to win the NFL MVP and is more than deserving. This matchup is setting up to be incredible and it's the most excited we've been for a playoff game so far this year if you exclude games our actual favorite teams played in.

Quarterbacks

This is the battle between the best of the season and the best in the world. No one has been hotter or played better than Lamar this year. Last week, he once again dominated the game and accounted for four TDs on electrifying play after electrifying play. The Texans' defense had no answers for him on the ground. It's hard to imagine Baltimore not having the edge over anybody at QB in any game.
