  • Patrick Mahomes Solid Against Rams

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn't have his best showing on Sunday against the Rams, but even Mahomes when he's not at his best is pretty good. He was 27-for-42 for 320 yards in the win, throwing a touchdown on the first drive, but then failing to find the end zone again. He was picked off once, and also added 36 rushing yards. Mahomes is a must-start QB1 every week.

  • Patrick Mahomes Looks To Keep Rolling Against Rams

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown for seven touchdowns in the past two games plus has five games in a row of over 300 passing yards. In Week 12, he'll look to keep that streak alive against the Rams. Mahomes has faced the Rams just once in his career, passing for 478 yards and six touchdowns, but that was in a game where both teams were on top of their game. This Rams team isn't as competitive, so Mahomes shouldn't need to do too much in this one, though he's an obvious must-start and a top-five play this week. The Rams do allow the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, but Mahomes is matchup-proof.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws Three Touchdowns In Week 11 Win

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was 20-for-39 for 329 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He also added 23 rushing yards. Mahomes had his worst game of the year from a yardage perspective in the first meeting of these teams, but he threw for almost 100 more yards in this one than he did back in Week 2. Mahomes also wasn't picked off in this game, ending a four-game streak of throwing an interception. He's a high-end QB1 heading into next week's meeting with the Rams.

  • Patrick Mahomes Remains Top Fantasy Play In Week 11

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for a season-low 235 yards when he faced the Chargers back in Week 2. That's a slight concern heading into the rematch this week, but Mahomes is on a hot streak right now, throwing for over 300 yards in four consecutive games. Last week, he tossed four touchdowns against the Jaguars. The Chargers have one of the NFL's worst run defenses, but the Chiefs have one of the worst rushing offenses, so while the numbers might suggest that the best way to attack this defense is on the ground, expect Mahomes to make most of the offense happen with his arm. He remains a high-end QB1 play.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws For Four Scores Against Jags

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was 26-for-35 for 331 yards and four touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was picked off once. The former MVP also added 39 yards on the ground on seven carries. This is the fourth game in a row that Mahomes has thrown for over 300 yards. Up next is a meeting with the Chargers, who held Mahomes to a season-low 235 yards back in Week 2. But regardless of matchup, Mahomes is a must-play fantasy QB1.

  • Patrick Mahomes Looks To Keep Rolling Against Jaguars

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown for over 400 yards in consecutive weeks heading into Sunday's home contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He might not get to 400 again this week, but he should be set to find success through the air against a Jaguars defense that ranks just 22nd in passing yards allowed per game. Kansas City has the NFL's best scoring offense and leads the league in passing yards per game as well. Mahomes should be considered a top-three fantasy quarterback for Week 10.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws For 446 Yards

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was 43-for-68 for 446 yards in Sunday night's overtime win over the Tennessee Titans. He had a touchdown and an interception, which came off the fingertips of tight end Travis Kelce. Mahomes also added 63 rushing yards and a touchdown. As a whole, the Chiefs had just 77 rushing yards. While only getting one touchdown pass out of 446 yards is a little curious, this was still a great outcome for fantasy managers against a talented Titans defense.

  • Patrick Mahomes Should Excel Against Titans

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes should be considered a high-end QB1 play in Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans currently rank 24th in the NFL in passing yards allowed, giving up 254 per game. Mahomes has thrown for over 300 yards in each of the last two games and will have a good chance to do so again on Sunday night. He's thrown multiple touchdown passes in all but one game this season and has 20 or more fantasy points in all but two games.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws For Over 400 Yards In Week 7

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes shrugged off concerns about a bad matchup and decimated the 49ers defense in Sunday's 44-23 win over San Francisco. The former MVP was 25-for-34 for 423 yards in the win, throwing three touchdowns and one interception. He didn't record a rushing attempt. Mahomes hit on multiple deep throws in this one, with two receivers going over 100 yards. Mahomes remains one of the NFL's best quarterbacks, but fantasy managers will need to find a replacement for him in Week 8 with the Chiefs on a bye.

  • Patrick Mahomes A Must-Start Despite Bad Matchup

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes should be in your fantasy lineup every week, but there is a slight reason to be concerned this week when the Chiefs take on the 49ers. The 49ers allow the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, in part because they're one of three teams to give up under 200 passing yards per game, with opponents sitting at 193.3. Last week, they held the Falcons to 121 passing yards. Mahomes had 338 yards against the Bills last week and should be able to post his usual QB1 numbers, but it's worth at least taking note of the matchup concern.

  • Patrick Mahomes Picked Twice In Loss To Bills

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was 25-for-40 for 338 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. The former MVP threw a pair of interceptions, his first multiple pick game of the 2022 season. Mahomes also added 21 yards on the ground. It took both offenses a bit to get going, but Mahomes still ended up with a solid game for fantasy purposes, even with the turnovers. Mahomes should still be viewed as a top-five fantasy quarterback going forward.

  • Patrick Mahomes Set For Explosive Week 6 Matchup

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes should be considered a top fantasy option heading into Sunday's meeting with the Buffalo Bills. While Buffalo the league's fourth-best pass defense by yards allowed per game, Mahomes is essentially matchup proof, and he threw for 378 yards and three touchdowns when these teams met in the playoffs last season. There's a scenario where the Bills defense slows Mahomes down, but fantasy managers shouldn't let that possibility keep them from deploying Mahomes as a high-end QB1 for what should be an exciting matchup on Sunday between two of the NFL's best quarterbacks.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his team to a comeback victory on Monday night against the Las Vegas Raiders. He was 29-for-43 passing with 292 yards and four touchdowns, all of which went to tight end Travis Kelce. Mahomes also added 24 yards on the ground. Mahomes has now thrown for under 300 yards in four consecutive games, but his ability to find his teammates in the end zone means that he's still an elite fantasy quarterback.

  • Patrick Mahomes Should Thrive Against Raiders

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes should be locked in as a fantasy QB1 for Monday's contest against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders rank 22nd in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game at 253, while the Chiefs rank seventh in passing yards per game. Mahomes is always a fantasy QB1, but a matchup like this makes him a top target in DFS as well, if you're playing in a contest that includes Monday night.

  • Bucs Defense Shredded By Kansas City In Week 4 Loss

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense/special teams allowed 417 yards of total offense in Sunday's 41-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Tampa Bay had allowed 27 points total in three games heading into Week 4 but was shredded by the Chiefs offense in the Week 4 loss. The Bucs' defense had no answer for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who threw three touchdowns on Sunday. Tampa Bay did record an interception and one sack. The Bucs' defense will look to rebound and is a must-start option in a plus matchup against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws Three Touchdowns In Week 4

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes faced a tough matchup on Sunday against the NFL's best scoring defense, but he was able to connect with his receivers for three touchdowns in the win over the Buccaneers. Mahomes was 23-for-37 for 249 yards in the game. He threw one interception and added 34 yards on the ground. Mahomes is an elite fantasy quarterback and while he has just one 300-yard game so far this season, his ability to get the ball in the end zone keeps his value high.

  • Bucs Defense A Borderline Starting Option In Week 4

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense/special teams will look to contain star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs explosive offense in Week 4. Sunday Night Football between the two teams has a projected over/under of 48.5 points. Tampa Bay's defense has been stingy towards opposing offenses, allowing just nine points per game, which ranks first in the NFL. The Bucs' defense allows 289 total yards per contest to opposing offenses, which is good for the fourth-best in the league. Sunday night versus Kansas City will be their most formidable challenge so far this season. Still, the Bucs' defense should provide solid numbers and is considered a borderline starting option in Week 4.

  • Patrick Mahomes - Week 4 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is always a must-start player in season-long fantasy leagues, but Sunday night's matchup against the Buccaneers projects to be a tough one, making him a potential fade in DFS. The Bucs allows the 12th-fewest passing yards per game this season and the fewest points per game, with opponents averaging just 9.0 points per game through the first three games. Mahomes and the Chiefs rank sixth in passing yards per game and fourth in scoring offense. Something's got to give. Play Mahomes in season-long fantasy and hope the defense is what gives. Sit him in DFS in case he's what gives.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn't have his usual dominant game on Sunday against the Colts, throwing just one touchdown and his first interception of the season in the 20-17 loss. Mahomes was 20-for-35 for 262 yards and also added 26 yards on the ground. It was a disappointing showing from the Chiefs, but Mahomes' track record suggests that this is just a blip. He remains one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy football.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes should be started in all fantasy formats for Sunday's road contest against the Indianapolis Colts. Mahomes has already thrown seven touchdown passes through two games and now meets with a Colts defense that allowed Trevor Lawrence to go 25-for-30 last week. Mahomes is a top fantasy option this week in both season-long and DFS contests.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes went 24-for-35 for 235 yards in Thursday's win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Mahomes threw a pair of touchdown passes. He lost one yard in the run game. It definitely wasn't a classic Mahomes performance and the numbers could have been worse if an interception wasn't called back by penalty, but the former MVP did what needed to be done to get the win. Mahomes is still a top five fantasy quarterback and should play better against the Colts.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (wrist) was a full participant in practice this week and is off the injury report for Thursday night's matchup against the division-rival Los Angeles Chargers. There was little doubt about Mahomes' availability for this game. However, it is still encouraging for him to be off the injury report and not listed as questionable. Even if Mahomes remained on the injury report, fantasy managers should have been confident starting him as a high-end QB1 against the Chargers.

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (wrist) is a full-go for the team's Week 2 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night, according to head coach Andy Reid. Mahomes fell on his wrist early on in the season opener but was able to stay in the game on his way to 360 passing yards and five touchdowns. This could be something that Mahomes will have to tolerate moving forward, but the good news is it isn't something that should have an impact on his performance. The former league MVP is an elite QB1 option for fantasy managers in Week 2 and should be started in all formats.

  • Patrick Mahomes Sustained Minor Wrist Injury In Week 1

    Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered an apparent wrist injury after falling on it during the team's Week 1 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Andy Reid said that tests would be done, but Mahomes himself said that the injury occurred after his first of five touchdown passes, so it didn't seem to hold him back in the slightest. He also added that the wrist is sore but that "everything looked good" on initial X-rays. On a short week before facing the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night, the Chiefs could take extra precautions with Mahomes in practice, but all signs point to the former MVP suiting up for Week 2.
