2024 Super Bowl DFS picks: 49ers vs. Chiefs fantasy lineup advice for DraftKings, FanDuel from top expert

Super Bowl 58 will take place on Sunday in Las Vegas with the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the San Francisco 49ers. It’s the second time these two teams have met at the Super Bowl in the last four years and Patrick Mahomes took home Super Bowl MVP honors in a 31-20 win for Kansas City the first time around. Mahomes threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns while adding a rushing touchdown and NFL DFS lineups that rostered Mahomes were at a huge advantage in Super Bowl DFS contests.

However, the 49ers have added several offensive stars since Super Bowl 54, including drafting Brock Purdy and trading for Christian McCaffrey. How much exposure should you have to Mahomes, Purdy and McCaffrey in 2024 Super Bowl DFS lineups and who else in the NFL DFS player pool should you target for Chiefs vs. 49ers? Before making any NFL DFS picks for Super Bowl 58 on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel, be sure to check out the NFL DFS lineup advice, strategy and player stacks from SportsLine NFL daily Fantasy expert Jimmie Kaylor

Kaylor is a NFL and DFS expert for SportsLine, who opened the 2022 NFL season by winning DraftKings’ NFL Showdown Thursday Kickoff Millionaire contest. He edged out over 355,000 other entrants in the contest and also has multiple five-figure tournament wins on his DFS resume. Kaylor, who cashed big all season in 2022, has covered the NFL and college football for close to a decade as a member of the Pro Football Writers of America, and his background as a former college and NFL player gives him a unique perspective when building his fantasy lineups and locking in his betting picks.  

This year, Kaylor has been all over players like Justin Jefferson (11-159), D’Andre Swift (175-1), DeVonta Smith (4-132-1), T.J. Hockenson (7-66-2), D.J. Moore (8-230-3), David Montgomery (121-3), Ja’Marr Chase (12-141, 11-149-1), Alvin Kamara (12-91, 76), Jordan Addison (7-123-2), Jahmyr Gibbs (152-1, 5-37), Javonte Williams (79, 3-31-1), Dak Prescott (331-4), CeeDee Lamb (12-116-1), DK Metcalf (6-143-3), Aidan O’Connell (248-4), and Puka Nacua (9-164-1). Anyone who followed his picks cashed in big.

On Wild Card Weekend, two of his top core plays were among the highest-scoring players of the weekend. Dallas tight end Jake Ferguson caught 10 passes for 93 yards and three touchdowns, while Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice hauled in eight passes for 130 yards and a touchdown. Anybody who included them in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable day.

Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to the 2024 Super Bowl matchup of San Francisco vs. Kansas City and locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks.

Now, Kaylor has turned his attention to the Super Bowl LVIII matchup of Chiefs vs. 49ers and just locked in his top daily Fantasy football picks. You can only see his Super Bowl picks and analysis at SportsLine.

Top NFL DFS picks, lineups, player stacks for 49ers vs. Chiefs

One of Kaylor’s top DFS picks for Super Bowl 58 is 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey. There might not be a more versatile player in the NFL than McCaffrey, so it is fitting that he gets to cap off the season with a Super Bowl appearance. He had 20 carries for 90 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions in the NFC Championship while catching four passes for 42 yards.

McCaffrey scored 21 total touchdowns during the regular season, and he has added four more in just two games this postseason. He has finished with at least 90 rushing yards in seven of his last eight games, making him both an elite and consistent performer in NFL DFS contests. His price tag might not be particularly appealing this weekend, but he has been too good for Kaylor to stay away from. 

Part of Kaylor’s optimal Super Bowl NFL DFS strategy also includes rostering Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce. He failed to reach 1,000 yards for the first time since 2015 and faced constant criticism for his highly-publicized relationship with pop megastar Taylor Swift. However, he still made his ninth Pro Bowl and he’s been at his best when it has mattered most.

Kelce has 25 catches for 262 yards and three touchdowns during the 2024 NFL Playoffs and he is coming off an AFC championship game performance where he caught all 11 of his targets for 116 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens. Now he’ll take on a 49ers defense that just allowed nine catches for 97 yards to Lions tight end Sam LaPorta. You can see the rest of Kaylor’s NFL DFS picks here.
