1 Patrick Mahomes, KC 12 26.0 2.10 28.7

Mike's Thoughts: In Superflex, I could see taking Mahomes over CMC. In 1QB leagues, I probably don't draft Mahomes at all unless he falls considerably (4th round).

2 Josh Allen, BUF 7 25.3 3.09 28.5

Mike's Thoughts: It is well documented how much Allen worked after the 2019 season that led to a huge improvement in 2020. So, I'm not expecting him to backslide in 2021. He hasn't got the weapons of Patrick Mahomes (Travis Kelce) and plays in a tougher division, but I don't see the drop-off from Mahomes as that significant. Drafted Allen 4.05 (35) in a 1QB 10-team best ball on 7/20. Drafted Allen 5.08 (56) in RazzBowl on 7/27.

  • Patrick Mahomes Throws Three Touchdowns In Loss

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes enjoyed a nice evening in a Week 2 loss versus the Baltimore Ravens. Mahomes was 24-for-31 on the night and tossed three touchdowns with one interception. His longest touchdown of the game came on a 46-yard reception by tight end Travis Kelce. Operating as the signal caller in one of the top offenses, Mahomes remains one of the top superstars behind center and in all fantasy formats. Managers should continue to enjoy one of the top arms in the game and Mahomes will continue to be a top option at the quarterback every single week. Next up for Mahomes will be a matchup versus the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3 and that should once again be a high scoring contest.

  • Patrick Mahomes Draws Tasty Matchup In Week 2

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is set up for a tasty matchup in Week 2 versus the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens defense, especially their secondary has been banged up and they allowed the most passing yards of any team with 491 against Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 1. Although it was just one week, if Carr and the Raiders can put up 33 points and 491 yards, it's scary to imagine what the Mahomes and one of the most dangerous offenses in the game can do. Mahomes had a great Week 1 completing 27 of his 33 pass attempts and tossing three touchdowns. He also chipped in with five rushes for 18 yards and a touchdown. Managers should sit back and enjoy Mahomes every week and he will continue to be a QB1 in all formats moving forward and arguably the best in the game on a weekly basis.

  • Browns Defense Gives Up 33 Points In Tough Week 1 Loss

    The Cleveland Browns defense struggled to contain Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs offense in a 33-29 loss in Week 1. Cleveland's defense got off to a fast start, holding the Chiefs to just 10 points in the first half, but they ran out of steam in the second half in the loss. The Browns finished with two sacks and were unable to force a turnover in the contest. While Cleveland's defense struggled in a tough matchup, this is a talented unit that should be much better than they were in 2020. They should bounce back in Week 2 in a plus home matchup against the Houston Texans.

  • Patrick Mahomes Should Continue To Put Up Big Numbers In 2021

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is destined for another year as one of the best at his position this season, but will draw a tough Cleveland Browns defense in Week 1. The Browns defense was more vulnerable versus the pass than the run in 2020 with 247.6 yards allowed through the air per game, but they added edge rusher Jadeveon Clowney and spent their first-round pick on cornerback Greg Newsome II to shore up an already tough defense. Despite the Browns offseason additions and already productive defense, Mahomes and the Chiefs offense remains one of the most dangerous in the league. With offensive options such as wide receiver Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, managers should have no worries about firing up Mahomes as their QB1 this week and every week moving forward. He remains arguably the best at his position and the Chiefs should continue to get on the board plenty of times in 2021.

  • Patrick Mahomes Dominates Final Preseason Game

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes lit up the Minnesota Vikings in his final preseason game of the season on Friday evening. Mahomes played two series and completed eight of his nine pass attempts for two touchdowns. The Chiefs didn't need to see much from their projected starters on Friday, but Mahomes proved why he should be one of the top signal callers off the board in upcoming drafts. The All-Pro quarterback finishes the preseason 20-for-29 with 199 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Managers can expect big things from Mahomes this season and it will start with a matchup versus the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.

  • Patrick Mahomes To Get Some Playing Time Friday

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the starters on offense will be in action for the first half of Friday's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Andy Reid. The likes of Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and Mecole Hardman could all make for some interesting DFS options considering the rather significant playing time they are projected to receive. It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs use their sophomore running back Edwards-Helaire, as the former LSU standout has been projected by many as a breakout candidate in 2021. He is projected for an expanded role in the passing game, so he is among the most attractive options in DFS as he figures to record a couple of receptions.

  • Patrick Mahomes Plays One Series In Preseason Opener

    Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes had a short night in Saturday's first preseason game versus the San Francisco 49ers. Mahomes only played one series and went 1-for-2 for four yards. It's not a surprise that Mahomes barely saw any action and managers should have no concern about him leading one of the best offenses in the league this season. Mahomes had toe surgery in the offseason, but appears to be fully recovered. Mahomes threw for 4740 yards in 2020 with 38 touchdowns and six interceptions in 15 regular season games. He also rushed the ball 62 times for 308 yards and two touchdowns. Mahomes remains at the top of the class for quarterbacks in the upcoming season.

  • Patrick Mahomes Expected To Have No Restrictions

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes believes that he will have no restrictions with his left foot when training camp starts. Mahomes underwent toe surgery after the season and recently shed his walking boot. Mahomes hasn't had a setback since then and it's a great sign for the signal caller looking ahead to this season. Mahomes remains at the top of the class for the quarterback position entering this upcoming season and managers should feel safe spending early draft capital on him. If Mahomes were to have a setback or miss time, veteran backup Chad Henne would be next in line.

  • Chad Henne Expected To Backup Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Chad Henne is expected to remain the backup quarterback for the third straight season behind Patrick Mahomes. Henne will be entering his 12th season and his 38 pass attempts in garbage time last year were the most that he has thrown since 2014, when he threw 72 passes. Henne's experience and knowledge of the Chiefs system should secure him the backup gig, but managers should be worried with all of their Chiefs players if Henne has to start games. Henne will be competing with Jordan Ta'amu, Shane Buechele and Anthony Gordon for the No. 2 spot, but it would be an upset if he didn't win the gig.

  • Patrick Mahomes Says He's Fully Healthy

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (toe), who had toe surgery in the offseason, said that he's fully healthy with training camp approaching. "The toe's feeling great," Mahomes said. "I'm out here playing golf, being able to walk around the course. I've been running, cutting, jumping, throwing, doing it all. So I'm just excited to get back to training camp and have another chance to make a run at it and win the Super Bowl this year." Mahomes ditched his walking boot in the spring and took part in mandatory minicamp in June without any setbacks. The offensive line may still be somewhat of a question mark, but either way, Mahomes should remain worthy of being the first QB taken in fantasy drafts in the early rounds.

  • Patrick Mahomes Focusing On Short And Intermediate Passes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes focused more on short and intermediate passes during organized team activities and mandatory minicamp after re-watching tape of the Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mahomes completed 64 percent of his 130 passes between 10 and 20 yards downfield last regular season, but he thinks he can improve on that. Increasing the targets to running backs and tight ends not named Travis Kelce could diversify this offense even more. Mahomes used only 114 of his 570 targets last season on such teammates. Kansas City's offensive line will need to improve from last year, but even with those question marks, Mahomes will be the top fantasy QB off the board in fantasy drafts in 2021.
