The final game of the NFL's Conference Championship Weekend features a matchup between two of the most exciting young QBs in the NFL, as Josh Allen's Buffalo Bills take on Patrick Mahomes' Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City is currently a 3-point favorite, per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.

If you're still looking to get your fantasy football fix, there are plenty of formats available to keep playing fantasy football throughout the NFL Playoffs. Here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this week's Bills-Chiefs showdown.

Stefon Diggs Fantasy

Start Stefon Diggs, WR, Buffalo Bills: Josh Allen just had his worst game in a while. That still wasn't enough to slow down Stefon Diggs, though. The Bills' No. 1 wideout turned 11 targets into 8 catches for 106 yards and a TD, accounting for more than half of Allen's 206 passing yards and grabbing his lone TD pass. Diggs is averaging 122.0 receiving yards per contest over his last six, catching at least 6 passes in each game. The Chiefs have a great pass defense, but there's no reason to believe Diggs will slow down any time soon.

Travis Kelce Fantasy

Start Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs: Like Diggs, Travis Kelce has been impossible to stop in recent weeks. Since Week 8, Kelce is averaging 113.8 receiving yards per game, which would put him on a 16-game pace to rack up 1,820.4 receiving yards. His worst outing during that 11-game run saw him finish with 68 receiving yards. Assuming Patrick Mahomes plays, Kelce should be his usual, dominant self on Sunday.

John Brown Fantasy

Sit John Brown, WR, Buffalo Bills: John Brown is a boom-or-bust option as a fantasy player, but he's fallen on the "bust" side of things a lot recently. In his last nine appearances, Brown has recorded fewer than 45 receiving yards five times, including three outings with zero catches. In and out of the lineup due to injuries, Brown is still an explosive player, but Kansas City surrendered the sixth-fewest PPR points to opposing wideouts this season. You should have better options than Brown at WR this week.

Le'Veon Bell Fantasy

Sit Le'Veon Bell, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: Even if Clyde Edwards-Helaire misses this week again, Le'Veon Bell just isn't someone you can trust. Clearly playing behind Darrell Williams last week with CEH out, Bell saw 2 carries for 6 yards (adding 2 targets and 0 catches) on Sunday. Williams, meanwhile, turned 13 carries into 78 rushing yards adding 4 receptions for 16 receiving yards. Regardless of what happens with CEH, Bell just isn't an option this week.
