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 To Restructure His Contract

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be restructuring his contract to create an additional $21.6 million worth of salary cap space for the team in 2024 as they look to become the first team in NFL history to win three straight Super Bowls, according to league sources. The move gives the Chiefs some wiggle room to add some players in free agency. It was rumored on Monday that they were interested in former Chicago Bears wideout Darnell Mooney, but he landed with the Atlanta Falcons in free agency. Kansas City could surely use another receiving weapon to help Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice in the passing game after the team's offense was the weakest its been under Mahomes in 2023. Behind Rice, none of Justin Watson, Skyy Moore, Justyn Ross or Kadarius Toney were reliable targets for Mahomes last year.

  • Chiefs Need More Reliable Receivers

    Headshot for Travis Kelce

    It's pretty obvious, but the Kansas City Chiefs need more viable, reliable wide receivers this offseason, especially a veteran or two to help the offense reclaim its juggernaut status despite just winning back-to-back Super Bowl championships. The Chiefs still have an elite quarterback in Patrick Mahomes and two strong pass-catchers in tight end Travis Kelce and wideout Rashee Rice, but the continual arms race in the AFC is only going to intensify this offseason as the Chargers, Raiders and Broncos look to knock the Chiefs off their perch. The Chiefs would be wise to counter by acquiring better receivers for Mahomes, either through free agency or the draft. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is one of the obvious salary cap cuts that the Chiefs should be able to replace while improving at the position.

  • Andy Reid Doesn't Plan On Retiring

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said that he's planning on returning for another year in 2024 despite winning his second Super Bowl championship in the last two years over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. There had been speculation that Reid might ride off into the sunset if he won his third Super Bowl ring this year, but that won't be the case, and he'll be looking to build on his 258 career regular season victories in 2024. His 258 wins currently rank him fourth all-time among NFL head coaches, directly behind former New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick (302). With All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes showing no signs of slowing down, Reid and the Chiefs have a very realistic shot of becoming the only team in NFL history to win three Super Bowls in a row.

  • Patrick Mahomes Tosses Walk-Off Score For Third Championship

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes collected the third Super Bowl win of his decorated career in Sunday's 25-22 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers, completing 34-of-46 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception and adding nine carries for 66 yards. San Francisco held Mahomes and company in check during the first two quarters of a thrilling Super Bowl LVIII, but these two heavyweights went punch for punch after halftime. After a botched Niners punt in the third period, Mahomes perhaps caught the defense off guard with a go-ahead 16-yard score to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. K.C. later matched San Fran's 13-play scoring in OT with one of their own, with Mahomes cashing in a game-winning TD from three yards away to Mecole Hardman Jr. Despite the three-time Super Bowl MVP's down year statistically, Mahomes will be a no-brainer top-five fantasy QB1 when it's time for 2024 drafts.

  • Patrick Mahomes Vies For Third Lombardi Trophy

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes embarks on his fourth career Super Bowl appearance on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. In three Super Bowls, Mahomes has thrown for 738 yards, five touchdowns, four interceptions, and a 79.7 passer rating. Since Allegiant Stadium opened in 2020, it's almost been a home away from home for Mahomes. For what it's worth, the two-time MVP has accumulated 1,254 yards, 10 TDs, one interception, and a 115.9 passer rating in four lifetime contests at the venue. When these teams last met in late October of 2022, Mahomes diced up San Fran for 423 yards and three scores with one pick. With that said, the Niners have given up the fifth-fewest yards per attempt (5.9) and third-fewest points per game (18.4) to date this year, and they were tied for the most interceptions (22) during the regular season. Mahomes has topped 20 fantasy points only once since Week 7 and is a bet-on-talent DFS wager as he looks to hoist his third Lombardi Trophy in the big game.

  • Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs Win Fourth AFC Title Since 2019

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    The Kansas City Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes advanced to their fourth Super Bowl in the past five years with a 17-10 road win over the Baltimore Ravens in Sunday's AFC Championship game. Mahomes completed 30-of-39 passes for 241 yards and one touchdown, adding 15 yards on six carries. After passing Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski for the most postseason TDs by a QB-receiver combo in the Divisional Round victory over the Buffalo Bills, Mahomes added another by connecting with Travis Kelce from 19 yards away on K.C.'s opening drive to get the future Hall of Fame tight end his 19th career playoff score. With a game-sealing 32-yard pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mahomes and the defending-champion Chiefs punched their ticket to Las Vegas to take on the San Francisco 49ers on Feb. 11 for a Super Bowl LIV rematch and attempt to repeat as champs for the first time since the 2003-04 New England Patriots.

  • Patrick Mahomes Hunts For Fourth Career Super Bowl Berth

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes took advantage of an injury-depleted Buffalo Bills defense in the Divisional Round win, but he'll face a much tougher test in Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Baltimore Ravens. Defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald's unit held signal-callers to the fewest fantasy points per game (11.20), passing touchdowns (16), and yards per attempt (5.1) in the regular season. That's not to mention that Baltimore's D ranked first in points per game (16.5) and sacks (58). It's about the stiffest matchup Mahomes could draw, but for what it's worth, the two-time MVP has eclipsed 340 passing yards in each of his four career starts versus the Ravens and totes a 132.5 passer rating with 1,102 yards (10.0 yards per attempt) and a 10:1 TD:INT over his last three outings against them. Whereas Mahomes was a high-end DFS play against the Bills, he's more of a midrange option here at $6,900 on DraftKings.

  • Joe Thuney Unlikely To Face Ravens In AFC Championship

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs left guard Joe Thuney (pectoral) is not practicing on Wednesday and is unlikely to play against the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Thuney suffered a pectoral injury in the Divisional Round win over the Buffalo Bills. If he can't suit up on Sunday, it will be a massive loss for the Chiefs' offensive line. The three-time Super Bowl Champion earned first-team All-Pro honors this year and is part of one of the best interior offensive lines in the NFL. Heading into a matchup with stud defensive linemen Michael Pierce and Justin Madubuike, his potential absence is obviously not ideal. Expect Patrick Mahomes to face more interior pressure if Thuney is standing on the sideline.

  • Patrick Mahomes Hits All The Right Notes Sunday

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes pushed all the right buttons as his team held on for a 27-24 road win over the Buffalo Bills, completing 17-of-23 passes for 215 yards and two touchdowns with 16 additional yards on six carries in Sunday's Divisional Round. The Chiefs ran just 47 plays to Buffalo's 78 and possessed the ball for less than 24 minutes, but that was all Mahomes needed for an efficient performance. The 28-year-old superstar missed Kelce in the back of the end zone early, but he made no mistake finding his tight end wide open in the second quarter. Mahomes dumped one off to Kelce again for his second score in the third period. In terms of passer rating (131.6), Sunday was Mahomes' best game of the year. Mahomes now hits the road for the second playoff game of his career away from home next Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, and it will be the two-time MVP's sixth straight postseason competing for the AFC title.

  • Patrick Mahomes Targets Banged-Up Bills Sunday

    Headshot for Patrick Mahomes

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes topped 300 total yards in last Saturday's win over the Miami Dolphins, but he placed just seventh at his position with 18.6 fantasy points. It was Mahomes' 10th straight outing outside of the top six for fantasy purposes -- despite the field narrowing to 12 wild-card starters -- last accomplishing this feat way back in Week 7. It's no secret that 2023 has been a statistical struggle for Mahomes, even with a pass-heavy approach, largely in part due to K.C.'s lack of downfield threats and reliability in their receiving corps. Mahomes has also struggled to an 85.1 passer rating and 7:5 TD:INT in four career regular-season games versus the Buffalo Bills, but he's kicked it up a notch for at least 325 passing yards and three touchdowns in each of these two teams' past two playoff matchups. Mahomes ranks third among DraftKings QB salaries at $6,800 for the Divisional Round and is a high-end QB1 against Buffalo's injury-plagued defense.
