  • Patrick Mahomes Expected To Restructure Deal

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is expected to restructure his contract by converting his $21.7 million roster bonus into a signing bonus in the coming days, according to league sources. The move would save the Chiefs $17 million against the 2021 salary cap. Mahomes didn't have his best performance in the Super Bowl loss to the Buccaneers, but in his defense, Kansas City's beat up offensive line didn't give him much of a chance against a ferocious Tampa Bay pass rush. The 25-year-old former MVP underwent surgery to address a nagging turf-toe injury when the season ended, but he should be just fine for the start of the 2021 season and should still be considered the top fantasy signal-caller after passing for 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 15 regular season starts.

  • Patrick Mahomes Should Be Ready For Training Camp

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (toe) underwent surgery to fix his turf-toe injury on Feb. 10. With a three-month recovery period expected, the Chiefs think that Mahomes will be ready for training camp this summer, and he could be good to go by mandatory minicamp, according to general manager Brett Veach. The 25-year-old was slowed a bit by the toe injury in the postseason, but it's not expected to affect him moving forward after surgery. Mahomes is an elite player at his position and is a perennial Pro Bowler and MVP candidate after making back-to-back trips to the Super Bowl. He had 4,740 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2020 while also adding 62 carries for 308 yards and two TDs on the ground. Mahomes will once again be in consideration as the first fantasy signal-caller off the board in 2021.

  • Patrick Mahomes To Have Surgery Wednesday

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (toe) will have surgery on Wednesday to fix a torn plantar plate in his foot, which is also known as turf toe, according to a source. The rehab will be for several months, but Mahomes is expected to make a full recovery. Noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson will perform the surgery. While Mahomes played through the injury in the playoffs, it was a significant ailment and it was clear that he was not 100 percent when he tried to tuck the ball and run. The 25-year-old former MVP will be fully ready for training camp and the 2021 season. His battered offensive line didn't give him much of a chance in the Super Bowl loss to the Buccaneers, but Mahomes will be motivated to put that performance past him next season. Mahomes is still the best quarterback in the NFL from a pure athleticism standpoint and should be the first signal-caller selected in fantasy drafts this fall.

  • Patrick Mahomes Fails To Throw A Touchdown In Super Bowl 55

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes struggled mightily in the teams Super Bowl 55 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mahomes failed to throw a touchdown on the evening for the first time in his career and it was also the first time in his career that he lost to an opposing team by double digit points. Mahomes was only 20-for-40 for 212 yards and two interceptions. He also rushed the ball five times for 33 yards. Mahomes was chased all night by a tough Bucs defense and playing behind a banged upoffensive line didn't help the former MVP. Mahomes may have had a dismal night, but he remains one of the best at his position and will be one of the top options for fantasy managers heading into next year.

  • Patrick Mahomes Expected To Have Offseason Toe Surgery

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is expected to have offseason surgery on his foot to help repair the turf toe injury he suffered against the Browns. Mahomes is a full-go for Sunday's Super Bowl and showed in the AFC Championship Game that the injury isn't going to keep him from posting huge numbers, but it's something to be aware of heading into the game.

  • Patrick Mahomes Leads Chiefs To Super Bowl 55

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes helped lead his two to their second consecutive Super Bowl with a victory against the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game. Mahomes was his usual self and completed 29 of his 38 pass attempts for 325 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed the ball five times for five yards. Mahomes is now the only player in NFL history to reach three straight championship games before the age of 26 and will now go to his second straight Super Bowl. Mahomes is putting up legendary numbers in his young career and he will square off against Tom Brady and a tough Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense for the chance to win his second Super Bowl ring in two weeks.

  • Patrick Mahomes Diagnosed With Turf Toe

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (toe) was diagnosed with turf toe on his left foot, according to sources. It's an injury that affected his preparation for the AFC Championship game against the Buffalo Bills more than his time in the concussion protocol. Mahomes was cleared from his concussion and will play against the Bills, but his toe limited his effectiveness on the field last week against Cleveland and in practice this week. He'll be re-evaluated after the season by a foot specialist to determine if he'll need surgery on his toe. The 25-year-old All-Pro will be much more risky based on his DFS price this weekend if he's not 100 percent healthy because of his injured toe, especially if he isn't able to scramble as much and create off-script plays with his legs.

  • Patrick Mahomes Clears Concussion Protocol

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion) said that he has been cleared from the league's concussion protocol, which makes him good to go for the AFC Championship against the Bills on Sunday. He was on the practice field on Friday, and head coach Andy Reid said that Mahomes took all of the snaps in Wednesday's practice and most of them on Thursday. The All-Pro signal-caller didn't actually suffer a blow to the head when he was forced to leave the Divisional Round against the Browns, so it was expected all along that he'd be available this weekend. The 25-year-old might be a tad bit more risky given his high DFS price against Buffalo, but Mahomes should be all systems go and has as much upside as any QB this weekend among Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Josh Allen.

  • Patrick Mahomes Trending In The Right Direction

    Things are trending in the right direction for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion) to play in the AFC Championship against the Bills on Sunday. Mahomes was limited in practice for the second straight day on Thursday and took the majority of the snaps on offense, a good sign that he didn't suffer a setback after practicing on Wednesday. The hope is that he's a full participant in practice on Friday, which means he'd likely be on his way toward being cleared from the league's protocol before Sunday. The 25-year-old former MVP will be a tad more risky at his elevated DFS price against Buffalo coming off a head injury that knocked him out of the Divisional Round game against the Browns, but Mahomes should put up numbers in what could be a high-scoring affair this weekend as long as he doesn't suffer another head injury.

  • Patrick Mahomes Practicing Again

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion) is practicing again on Thursday with a helmet. Rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip), wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) and cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland (concussion, shoulder) and Rashad Fenton (foot) are also practicing. Mahomes might be limited again on Thursday, but he appears to be making good progress in the league's concussion protocol after clearing some steps initially on Monday. While he's not officially out of the protocol, the 25-year-old is expected to suit up in the AFC Championship against the Bills on Sunday after leaving the Divisional Round with a concussion. Mahomes will be a bit more risky at a high DFS price this weekend, but he did throw for 225 yards and two touchdowns against Buffalo earlier this year and could easily go off if he's past his concussion issues from a week ago.

  • Patrick Mahomes, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Sammy Watkins Practice

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion, toe), rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle, hip) and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) all took part in practice on a limited basis on Wednesday, but head coach Andy Reid said that Thursday's practice is the big day. Mahomes took most of the snaps, a very positive sign that he'll be ready for the AFC Championship against the Bills. He remains asymptomatic and is expected to increase his activities throughout the week, barring a setback. Edwards-Helaire hasn't played since Week 15 and could see his snaps limited if he's active this Sunday, making him a boom/bust fantasy option. Watkins hasn't played since Week 16 and has been hit-or-miss all year (mostly miss), making him a dart throw in DFS if he's active against Buffalo.

  • Patrick Mahomes Remains In Concussion Protocol

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion) remains in the NFL's concussion protocol after leaving the Divisional Round contest against the Browns early, but there is optimism that he'll be able to play in the AFC Championship on Sunday against the Bills. Mahomes will have a very light practice on Wednesday and could be listed as a limited or non-participant, according to a source. His work is expected to ramp up throughout the week as he tries to clear each step in the league's protocols. Mahomes cleared some steps on Monday, and the fact that he'll attempt to practice on Wednesday is a good sign, but he's not out of the woods by a long shot. If he cannot go this weekend, veteran Chad Henne is expected to get the start, which would downgrade all of KC's offensive skill players in fantasy. The former MVP is still worth starting if he suits up, but he'll be a tad bit riskier than usual.

  • Patrick Mahomes Cleared Steps Monday

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (concussion) cleared "some big steps" on Monday, but he remains in the league's concussion protocol, and it's too early to say definitively that he will play in the AFC Championship against the Bills, according to sources. We'll have a better idea of Mahomes' chances of playing this Sunday once the Chiefs begin practicing on Wednesday, but he'll need full clearance from the protocol in order to play against Buffalo. If the 25-year-old cannot play, veteran Chad Henne would likely start under center after replacing Mahomes in the Divisional Round against the Browns. Mahomes threw for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 6 win over Buffalo, but he'll be riskier than usual at his high price in DFS if he plays this weekend.
