Fantasy Advice

Consensus number one, although he doesn't run much and scored lower PPG than Jalen Hurts and Josh Allen last season. Needs Kelce to continue to do super things, because skill positions are a little sketchy after that. Although that is why he is number one, because Mahomes and Andy Reid don't need stars at RB and WR to produce big numbers. Low risk for top results, but comes at a high draft cost.

  • Patrick Mahomes Good To Go In Week 4

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) practiced in full all week. In Week 3, there was a brief scare after his ankle was rolled up on, but the quarterback remained in the game and did not seem to be affected in the victory against the Chicago Bears. The 28-year-old suffered no setbacks in practice and is ready to go in Week 4 against the New York Jets. In spite of their woes on the offensive side of the ball, the Jets defense has been surprisingly resilient. In the season opener against the Bills, the team intercepted Josh Allen three times and, through the first three weeks of 2023, are allowing opposing quarterbacks just 231 yards per game. Regardless, Mahomes is a must-start in Week 4.

  • Patrick Mahomes Not Slowed By Ankle

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) was able to put in a full practice on Wednesday. Mahomes had an injury scare in the blowout win over the Chicago Bears in Week 3 when his right ankle was rolled up on, but he remained in the game and wasn't limited in the team's first practice of the week. Unless the 28-year-old suffers a setback with his ankle later this week, he won't be in any danger at all of missing the Sunday night showdown in New York against the Jets. Mahomes and the Chiefs offense was firing on all cylinders last Sunday, a great sign for fantasy managers moving forward. They'll face a pretty stingy Jets defense this weekend, but Mahomes is a must-start, regardless of matchup in fantasy.

  • Patrick Mahomes "All Good" After Injury Scare

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle), who was limping at one point in the Week 3 blowout win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday after getting his ankle rolled up, is "all good," according to a source. He's not dealing with a serious injury and should be fine for the Sunday night game in Week 4 against the New York Jets. The 28-year-old went 24-for-33 for 272 yards and three touchdowns in the 41-10 thumping of the Bears, adding three carries for 28 yards with his legs. The Chiefs and fantasy managers dodged a bullet here, but his ankle will be something to watch heading into a tough Week 4 matchup on the road against once of the better defenses in the NFL. Despite the tough matchup, Mahomes is a must-start, high-end QB1 week in and week out.

  • Patrick Mahomes Earns First Three-Score Effort In Short Day

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) completed 24-of-33 passes for 272 yards and three touchdowns with three carries for 28 yards in Week 3's 41-10 beatdown on the Chicago Bears. The 28-year-old passed for a few short scores to Jerick McKinnon early on Sunday, but had a longer touchdown to Marquez Valdes-Scantling nullified by an illegal formation penalty during the first half. It didn't take long before this one unraveled for Chicago, as Mahomes virtually sleepwalked his way to 221 yards and two scores before the second half. The superstar found Travis Kelce for a 10-yard TD before his day came to a close. Mahomes experienced a brief injury scare after Yannick Ngakoue fell awkwardly on his ankle late in the first half, so fantasy managers might see the reigning MVP have his practice reps managed, or pop up on Week 4's injury report. There's not much reason at this time to believe that his status is in any kind of jeopardy for next Sunday night against the New York Jets.

  • Chiefs Restructure Patrick Mahomes' Contract

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    The Kansas City Chiefs restructured quarterback Patrick Mahomes' contract on Monday, giving him $210.6 million between this year and 2026, the most money in NFL history over a four-year span. He will also be guaranteed that money. The Chiefs and Mahomes plan to revisit the agreement again after the 2026 season, according to Chris Cabott, who negotiated the deal on behalf of Mahomes. The 28-year-old superstar QB looked better in a low-scoring win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2 on Sunday, going 29-for-41 with 305 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He hasn't quite looked like the MVP candidate that he normally is so far, but it certainly helped that he got All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce back after Kelce missed Week 1 with a knee injury.

  • Patrick Mahomes Compiles 305 Yards Despite Low-Scoring Affair

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 29-of-41 passes for 305 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old chucked one into double coverage while he was hit for a second-quarter pick amidst a sloppy Chiefs first half. Mahomes salvaged the offense's listless initial two quarters with a pass from nine yards out for a Skyy Moore score in K.C.'s final drive of the half. Mahomes then hooked up with the returning Travis Kelce from nine yards out again for his second TD pass. On a humid day in the Florida heat, both offenses struggled to hold up their ends of the bargain in what was anticipated to be a potential shootout. Week 3's welcoming in of the erratic Justin Fields may not hold the same high-scoring prospects as Week 2 did. The reigning MVP should be licking his chops versus a Chicago Bears defense, however, that's had trouble keeping in check Jordan Love and Baker Mayfield during the opening two weeks.

  • Patrick Mahomes - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks to bounce back in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars from a subpar Week 1 performance by his lofty standards. The 27-year-old performed better than his 226-yard, two-touchdown, one-interception line would indicate after being plagued by at least six receiver drops without top target Travis Kelce (knee). Kelce will return for Sunday's contest, solidifying Mahomes as one of the weekend's premier QB1 plays. Jacksonville's defense sacrificed the sixth-most passing yards (4258) last year, and they just allowed raw rookie Anthony Richardson to finish as Week 1's overall QB4 in his NFL debut. Mahomes also tagged the Jags for a 74% completion rate (48-of-65), 526 yards, and a 6:1 TD:INT in two 2022 meetings including the AFC Divisional Round. Several other top fantasy QB1s reside in potentially high-scoring environments, so Mahomes' DFS rostership might be lower than expected despite this game presenting the slate's highest projected point total.

  • Patrick Mahomes Struggles During Second Half In Loss

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 21-of-39 attempts for 226 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. He added a team-high 45 rushing yards on six carries. The 27-year-old had to expectedly improvise in a game without Travis Kelce (knee), notably completing seven passes to seven different receivers in the first half. Mahomes didn't miss a beat early, going 12-for-17 for 147 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. Mahomes' third-quarter pick-six was hardly his fault after an accurate throw glanced off Kadarius Toney's fingertips. Mahomes' impeccable pocket maneuverability was on full display in this one, avoiding any sacks despite plenty of pressures. The superstar did his best to try and manufacture offense, dealing with numerous drops. The reigning MVP will be right back on the elite QB1 map in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, hopefully with Kelce in there.

  • Patrick Mahomes Could Be Week 1's Top QB1 Play

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks to ring in the new year on Thursday versus the Detroit Lions. The reigning MVP finds himself in a wonderful spot to start 2023 against a Lions defense that was gashed for more fantasy points per game to QBs (20.24) than any other in 2022. The 27-year-old could be missing superstar Travis Kelce (knee) for this one, however, putting a slight damper on an otherwise mouthwatering draw. Mahomes possesses overall QB1 upside every week, but with fellow superstars Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts in tougher matchups during the opening week, Mahomes might be the most appealing DFS play of the three. It's also worth noting that Mahomes owns a stellar 119.7 passer rating, 10.0 air yards per attempt, and 49:4 TD:INT in 16 career September outings, and an 11:1 TD:INT in five career Thursday contests.

  • Patrick Mahomes Sharp In First Quarter Saturday

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 10 out of 15 pass attempts for 105 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 38-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. After the 27-year-old was slated for a quarter of play last week but only saw one series, Mahomes got in the entire opening period in this one. Though, head coach Andy Reid planned on his superstar signal-caller playing into the second quarter. In any event, Mahomes was his usual amazing self, improvising on a few occasions to try and extend plays and give his receivers a chance to make plays. The reigning MVP is an obvious top-shelf QB1 in fantasy drafts this summer.

  • Patrick Mahomes Plays One Series On Sunday

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed both of his passing attempts for 15 yards and ran once for five yards in Sunday's 26-24 preseason loss to the New Orleans Saints. The 27-year-old superstar was thought to be available for the first quarter, but only participated in the first of the team's two drives of the period before his day concluded. Mahomes could see additional action on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals, but he figures to remain highly limited for the remainder of the preseason. The perennial MVP candidate represents a top-tier QB1 in 2023 fantasy drafts and could be the first signal-caller off the board in many leagues.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the team's available starters will play about a quarter of action in the preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints. Mahomes has nothing to prove, so all fantasy managers should hope for is that he stays healthy. That said, it could be interesting to see who he targets early on in the game since the Chiefs' target pecking order behind Travis Kelce is difficult to navigate at this point in the preseason. Skyy Moore and Rashee Rice are battling to be his top wide receiver, especially while Kadarius Toney (knee) remains out.

    Kansas City Chiefs two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Patrick Mahomes said on the AP Pro Football Podcast with Rob Maaddi that head coach Andy Reid has been essential to what is quickly becoming a Hall of Fame career. "I think if I'd have went to some other places, I would've had to learn how to play the quarterback position a different way, and he just lets me play the quarterback position the way that I want to play it. I think that's what's made me such a different type of quarterback in this league," Mahomes said. The 27-year-old superstar has also won two MVP awards in his five seasons and made the Pro Bowl each year. As long as the Mahomes-Travis Kelce connection remains intact, he'll be the overall QB1 in fantasy.
