Patrick Mahomes Throws Two Touchdowns In Week 6

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes went 20-for-25 for 217 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 6 against the Buffalo Bills. He also rushed eight times for 38 yards. It wasnt the most impressive game for the former MVP, but with rainy weather, the Chiefs elected to favor the run in this matchup versus the pass. The former MVP still put together a solid performance overall and will look to keep it going against an underrated Denver Broncos Defense in Week 7. Mahomes remains a QB1 every week.

Patrick Mahomes Should Continue Strong Season In Week 6

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will look to take advantage of a tired Buffalo Bills Defense in Week 6. The Bills played on Tuesday and wont have much time to game plan against the strongest offense in the league and former MVP. Mahomes continues to be one of the best overall option in weekly leagues and will look to become the fifth quarterback this season to throw for two or more touchdowns against the Bills. The Bills defense has also only picked off two passes and has allowed 274 yards per game. Mahomes is in a strong position to put up big numbers Sunday and should always be started in all formats.

Patrick Mahomes Throws First Interception

General

Mahomes did throw for 340 yards, two touchdowns and ran for a rushing touchdown. Mahomes also converted a two-point conversion, but was just 22-for-43 on the afternoon. The Raiders defense did a really good job against the MVP in their upset victory and held the Chiefs to just eight second half points. Even in a loss and a sloppy game by the Chiefs, Mahomes still put up nice numbers for managers and remains a QB1 against the Bills in Week 6.

Patrick Mahomes In Line For A Strong Week

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is set up to have a dominant Week 5 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The former MVP should be started every week of the season by managers, but those in DFS should take note that the Raiders have allowed have 30 points per game and 388.8 total yards per contest. Mahomes is in a strong position to meet both expectations on Sunday. The Chiefs operate one of the most exciting and successful offenses in the game and a struggling Raiders defense should have trouble against the defending champions with Mahomes likely to play a big part. He is a QB1 every week and has a chance to put up video numbers in Week 5.

General

Mahomes finished the game 19-for-29 with 236 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Patriots did a very good job against the MVP and things should get easier in a matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 5. Mahomes operates the most explosive offense in the league and should be started every week.

Patrick Mahomes Remains A Strong Option In Week 4

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is coming off of his best performance of the year and will look to keep it going in what should be an entertaining battle against the New England Patriots. Patriots coach Bill Belichick is likely staying up at night trying to find a game plan to stop Mahomes and the Chiefs explosive offense, but Mahomes as shown that the offense he leads is one of the best in a long time and wont be easy to stop. The Patriots Defense has only allowed 66 points on the season, but they have allowed 357 yards passing per game. The Patriots are likely to try run the ball and clock to prevent Mahomes from being on the field, but the MVP has shown that he doesnt need much time to do damage and he remains a QB1 every week.

Patrick Mahomes Looks To Continue Success Against Chargers

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is in for a tasty treat in a matchup versus the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Mahomes is coming off of a three touchdown performance on Thursday versus the Texans and will look to keep the momentum going. Arguably the best fantasy quarterback, Mahomes faces a Chargers team that he tore up in 2019 for six touchdowns, zero interceptions and 499 yards over two contests. Making things more favorable, the Chargers Defense will be without linebacker Drue Tranquill (ankle) and their star defensive lineman Joey Bosa (triceps) banged up, but expected to play. It should be a given that managers should start Mahomes every time out, but Sundays matchup could be extra special.

Patrick Mahomes Throws For Three Touchdowns In Week 1

The Super Bowl MVP was 24-for-32 and racked up just 211 yards, but threw for three touchdowns with zero interceptions.

Mahomes can safely be started every week other than his bye week.

Patrick Mahomes Has Been Great In Chiefs Losses

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a 108.2 passer rating in games that the Chiefs have lost, including the playoffs, in his time as a starter the last two full seasons. His passer rating for all games, including the playoffs, sits at 108.6. In Mahomes' 36 career starts, including the postseason, the Chiefs are 28-8 (.778). The Super Bowl MVP has never had a QBR below 52.6 in the seven games the team has lost when he has started. It goes to show how good Mahomes has been so far in his career, even when KC winds up on the losing end. The 24-year-old signed a 10-year, $503 million extension and will remain with the Chiefs through the 2031 season. He came off fantasy boards early in drafts as the first or second QB and will be a must-start all year long, including on Thursday night in the 2020 season opener against Houston.

Patrick Mahomes Begins 2020 Season Healthy

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has made it cool to pick quarterbacks in the first round of fantasy drafts again. Even despite a gruesome dislocated knee last year, Mahomes enters the new season as a Super Bowl champion and arguably the top signal caller on the board. With all of his pass-catching weapons returning, Mahomes is an obvious must start in every season-long league, in addition to having considerable DFS appeal no matter his opponent. Hell have an especially exploitable matchup to begin the year Sept. 10 when he faces a Texans Defense that he carved up for five touchdowns and 51 points during the postseason in 2019. There are few players in the entire league that boasts floors comparable to Mahomes, the highest-paid player in major American sports history.

Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes Agree On 10-Year Deal

General

The Kansas City Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes agreed to a 10-year contract extension on Monday, according to a league source. The deal that ties Mahomes to Kansas City through the 2031 season will be the richest contract in NFL history. Last year's Super Bowl MVP had two years remaining on his contract, so it's essentially a 12-year contract in total. Mahomes' extension is worth over $400 million in total, and sources think it will be tied to a percentage of the salary cap for each season. Cha ching. Mahomes cashes in after winning MVP in 2018 with 50 regular season touchdowns and leading the Chiefs to a Super Bowl title last season. His dual-threat ability makes him extremely dangerous on the football field in KC's explosive offense. Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are the top two fantasy signal-callers in 2020.

Patrick Mahomes, Receivers Holding Workouts

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and other players on the offensive end, including tight end Travis Kelce, have been holding workouts despite the unavailability of team facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite suffering a knee injury during the Thursday night game against the Denver Broncos last season, the former MVP still finished the regular season with 4,031 yards and 26 touchdowns (five interceptions) throughout 14 games. With Mahomes and company putting in work while others aren't able to, he has a good chance to reclaim the top spot as the best fantasy signal-caller in 2020.

Patrick Mahomes Has The Weapons To Beat Defenses Deep

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes' expected completion rate on deep passes is higher than most QBs in the league because of his speedy weapons, namely receiver Tyreek Hill, whose 18 touchdowns on deep targets since 2016 is second-most in the NFL behind Antonio Brown. Mahomes had a 30.3 percent rate of targets considered to be open on deep passes, which was the highest in the league. He was 7-for-11 on deep passes for 257 yards and four TDs in Week 2 against the Raiders, with his receivers being open on 27.3 percent of those 11 deep attempts. Mahomes leads the NFL with 25 deep-pass touchdowns since 2018, and although his receivers have made it easier on him, he's still an elite athlete with an elite arm. His 2019 season wasn't as good as his 2018 MVP campaign, but we still wouldn't blame you if you took him as the top QB1 over Lamar Jackson this year.

Patrick Mahomes, Offense Holding Informal Workouts

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and other members of the team's offense have been conducting informal workouts. This is not welcome news for those who have been unable to practice as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, especially since the Chiefs have already displayed one of the most potent offenses in the league over the last few years. After finishing 2018 as the league's top fantasy producer at the quarterback position, the 24-year-old was relegated to 14 games last season after dislocating his knee cap during the Thursday night encounter with the Broncos while also seeing statistical regression across the board throughout the year. However, with some extra reps added in before the start of the regular season, the former MVP may be on track for another stellar season.

Chiefs To Talk Extension With Patrick Mahomes This Summer

General

The Kansas City Chiefs plan on starting contract-extension talks with quarterback Patrick Mahomes this summer, chairman Clark Hunt said on a Facebook Live event with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Thursday. Both sides would love it if Mahomes remained a Chief for his entire career. He's currently set to count around $5.3 million against the salary cap in 2020 on the fourth year of his rookie deal, but the expectation is that he'll sign a long-term extension and become the highest-paid player in the NFL. The 24-year-old was the MVP in 2018 and led the Chiefs to a Super Bowl title last season. Mahomes' 2019 regular season wasn't nearly as good as his 2018 campaign, but he remains in consideration to be the first QB off the board in fantasy drafts alongside Lamar Jackson.

Patrick Mahomes The Consensus Favorite For MVP

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the consensus favorite to win Most Valuable Player in 2020, with Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson a close second. Mahomes is 4-1 to win what would be his second regular season MVP at Caesars Sportsbook, while Jackson, last year's MVP, is 13-2 to win the award in back-to-back seasons. Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is third at 9-1, followed by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at 12-1. Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (40-1) has the best odds of winning the award of any non-QB. Mahomes won the Super Bowl MVP last season and is one of the most athletic and dynamic signal-callers in the league. Both he and Jackson will be the two QBs first off the board at their position in most fantasy drafts.

Patrick Mahomes Confident Long-Term Deal Will Get Done

General

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes is confident that a long-term contract extension will get done in time. In an unexpected move, the Chiefs exercised Mahomes' fifth-year option, so he's currently under team control for two more years. But it's safe to expect that a new deal will get done before his current one expires. "Obviously I want to be a Chief for a long time," Mahomes told reporters Friday. "I want to have a contract that says that and I can go out there and know I have that security. I understand and trust the Chiefs organization and everybody in it that they're gonna handle it the right way." It's just a matter of time before he becomes the highest-paid player in the NFL. Mahomes' elite athleticism and huge arm make him an elite QB1 in fantasy for years to come.
