Who should I drop for Mahomes?

I know Mahomes has a rough matchup but that offense is too sick. Should I get him now and drop:

- Jimmy G?
- Ross? And carry 2 QBs?
- Stay pat and try to get him later?

12-team

1 Pt PPR, no bonuses, 4 pt pass TD

QB - Jimmy Garoppolo, SF

RB - Melvin Gordon, LAC

RB - Lamar Miller, Hou

WR - DeAndre Hopkins, Hou

WR - Marquise Goodwin, SF

TE - Jimmy Graham, GB

FLEX - Josh Gordon, Cle

K - Jake Elliott, Phi K

BENCH

RB Carlos Hyde, Cle

RB Adrian Peterson, Wsh

WR Will Fuller V, Hou

WR John Ross, Cin

RB - Latavius Murray, Min

my 2 cents.. Pick up Mahomes right away.. But I'm cutting Murray over Ross.. No need for Murray.. also, does Jimmy G have a tough week one matchup? I figured KC/SD would be a shootout.. but I havent looked at the QB rankings for week 1 yet.

Jimmy G going against Vikings- 2nd toughest pass D last year. Mahomes going against Chargers - 3rd toughest pass D last year. Bad matchups for both, but I guess Mahomes has more weapons.

I drafted Murray 2nd last round for goal line carries and in case Dalvin Cook eased in, but yeah I guess he's the most expendable on my team.

hmmm, be a good one week start for Dalton if you thought you could get mahomes the next wavier period.. but seems risky.. Murray would be fine for Best Ball teams for the reasons you stated, but it would take a lot for him to crack your starting RB spot

Funny that you say that. I have Big Ben as my #1, I dropped Mahomes for Andy Dalton this week because the Pittsbugh / Cleveland game is predicted to have horrible weather.  I'm hoping to scoop him back up next week.
