Dynasty & Redraft: QB Patrick ‘Showtime’ Mahomes II, Chiefs

Recommended Posts

What really impresses me is when the play breaks down and he has to move out of the pocket, he is still looking to throw, not run every time. Many young QBs with his wheels would take off and run the second a play breaks down, but he wants to make plays with his arm.  He looks awesome and reminds me of what I thought when Russell Wilson broke into the league in 2012 (except Mahomes has a better arm and far better weapons).

Huh? He threw for 300+ and had 2 TDs. 

Lol geez......tough crowd. 

He was pedestrian through 3 quarters and then he did well in the 4th. All these announcers were on his jockstrap

It'll be to much work trying to explain it to you. If that's what you think then by all means avoid drafting him.

The week 7 home game vs Cin got flexed to SNF.  Mahomes will be on SNF the next 2 weeks (@NE and vs Cin).

saw that and I think that gives them a total of 6 prime time games this year....nice

I've been thinking about the argument that you should sell high on Mahomes if you can get an RB1. On paper, that seems to make sense, and obviously, everyone has a price. Still, I realized part of what is holding me back is that fantasy is supposed to be fun, and it is fun as hell to own this guy right now.

The last couple weeks have probably dropped his value a bit, and if he has another 6TD outing, I might consider it again. But I think it would be too psychologically painful to see him going off in someone else's lineup.

The 59-point game total is the largest for an NFL game since the Chiefs hosted the Raiders in Week 16 of 2004 (60 points).

Tom Brady is averaging a touchdown pass for every 104.2 yards passing, the best rate in the league. Patrick Mahomes is second with a touchdown pass for every 108.1 yards passing.

Mahomes has tied a franchise record with four consecutive games of 300-yards passing, matching Trent Green (2004) and Bill Kenney (1983).

His fantasy output has dropped in three straight games from the week prior, but this week he gets a defense that is generating almost no pressure and is last in the league in sack rate (3.4 percent of dropbacks). The Patriots just allowed a QB4 overall week to a player who’s receiving weaponry was led by Eric Ebron and Chester Rogers.

Credit to Matt Waldman who was praising this guy up and down prior to his rookie season. That allowed me to get him late during his rookie year and encouraged me to be patient and hold him until this year. Glad I did, fun rooting for this kid.

Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-36 passes for 352 yards with four touchdowns and two interceptions in Kansas City's Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

 

Mahomes struggled in the first half before exploding over the final two quarters. He hit Kareem Hunt for a 67-yard touchdown on opening drive of second half, with all three of his other TDs going to Tyreek Hill. Mahomes got some help from a Patriots secondary that let Hill get past them for huge gains with broken coverages. The Chiefs lost on a last second field goal, but this was another strong showing from Mahomes after leading the Chiefs to a win over Jacksonvile last week. Mahomes will be a top-three quarterback play against the Bengals in Week 7.

He put up 40 points in Foxboro and made some ridiculous, video game type plays.  Yes he played poorly in the first half but that loss was strictly at the hands of the “defense”.  I think this guy is my favorite player to watch in all of football.

Mostly agree, but I was listening to the MMQB podcast this morning and they made a good point: Up until now, it was hard to come up with a defensive gameplan against him because he had consistently looked so good. In that first half Belichick showed some looks that seemed to rattle him (although it could have just been nerves). That could give future opponents something to work with.

The Ravens match-up in December will be really interesting; I think they're the best defense KC will face in the rest of their schedule (meanwhile, the Rams game in Mexico City will be a fireworks display). It will also be interesting to see how Mahomes adapts. While the Pats played him well in the first half, I also counted three plays where KC schemed open a receiver who would have walked into the end zone and Mahomes just overthrew him.

Dr. Octopus snagged him one place ahead of me in the FFA Summerpalooza fun league. I had the song picked out from Lubbock and everything. (Those were the rules...it was essentially a music draft.) It's been so much fun watching him blow up all over the league. I hope it keeps up and he stays healthy for years. 

Also, I wanted the Jets to draft him and even though Jamal Adams is good, I feel like we missed out on a generational talent. Those throws on the run that dot i's and cross t's are incredible to see.  Last night was the first chance I got to see him outside of the Denver game and came away impressed both times. More so last night, as Belichick probably threw every trick in the bag at him and he wound up hanging 40 on them and probably left twelve more on the field with overthrows at the beginning.

I traded for Mahomes in one of my dynasty leagues. I overpaid a little to get him but I wanted the extra title equity this season and I'm projecting big things from Mahomes/Tyreek the next 4-5 years.
