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


Recommended Posts

Quote

Patrick Mahomes completed just 22-of-43 passes for 340 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Chiefs' 40-32, Week 5 loss to the Raiders.

He added six carries for 21 yards and another touchdown as a runner, opening up the scoring with a short touchdown scamper in the first quarter. Mahomes' two touchdown throws went to Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce. Another 60-plus yards score to Tyreek Hill was called back on a Chiefs penalty. Mahomes was cruising in the first half, but Kansas City had fewer than 25 yards of second-half offense deep into the fourth quarter with the Raiders harassing Mahomes and making him leave the pocket on most of his throws. He had to contort his body to make a number of throws. The fantasy numbers look great, but Mahomes didn't play all that well, completing just over 51% of his passes. He could have been picked off a couple times as well. The 4-1 Chiefs will head to Buffalo in Week 6, a game that is scheduled to kick off early Monday night.

Possible to post your full league rules / bylaws? 

He is a wonderful, outstanding resource of a person. ?

Calling it is one thing, bumping 4 old posts to say I told you so is obnoxious. But congrats. 


Patrick Mahomes completed 21-of-26 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 6 win against the Bills.

Mahomes started off looking a bit shaky in the rain. There was a steady rainfall to start the game and it appeared to be affecting both Mahomes and Josh Allen. Mahomes missed on two of his first three throws and the Chiefs' initial drive ultimately stalled out at midfield. However, he came back with a vengeance after the first drive. Mahomes missed the mark on just two attempts in the second half and connected with Travis Kelce for two touchdowns. After a lackluster performance in his Week 5 loss to the Raiders, Mahomes was in peak form on Monday night. He remains one of the best fantasy quarterbacks in the league heading into his Week 7 matchup with the Broncos.

Mahomes owners, what are you all doing this weekend?  I’m half tempted to sit him this week and start Tannehill (still haven’t decided).  With the addition of Bell and the fact they are playing the Jets, I could easily see KC running the ball all game and getting so far ahead that they sit Mahomes at some point in the second half.  
 

anyone else considering sitting Mahomes this week?

I thought about it, but given that he'll probably already have put in a full game of stats by the time we no longer see him, I decided against it. He may very well be just handing the ball off all the time to Bell, but the Jets have squared up against the run decently this year. (Though they are getting rid of defensive players and may not be as stout in the personnel department.) Plus, in the two leagues I have Mahomes I have only Newton and Lock backing him up (in dynasty) and Carr (in one redraft), so there's that to consider. Tannehill is a little different kind of a choice.

if Jets commit to slow down the run game.....Mahomes could easily have one of those 3-4 pass TD type games no matter how long he plays...Chiefs are still going to work on things, keep improving....good time to try and get the big play game going a little early as they should win......they haven't been as explosive as in the past, so they may try to crank it up a little....Andy Reid isn't the kind of guy to really rub people's nose in it even though they score a ton of points, so there is some concern, but the Jets gave BUF all they could handle.....these are the kind of matchups you normally look at and start salivating as a fantasy owner....thinking about sitting your guy in one of the best matchups might be over thinking it....

I drafted Mahomes so I wouldn't have to worry about these types of decisions. 

He's one of the top 4 or 5 like Russ and Kyler that give you that luxury. 

He only needs to hit 2 bombs to Hill and scramble for 45 yards and already you have a floor of 20 points.

As an owner of Mahomes, CEH and Bell, I'm just not buying into the revenge game theory. Reid's going to makes the calls he needs to make with the end game in mind- another ring. Bell will get some, but I'm not buying the idea that CEH and the passing game will be pushed aside to satisfy a guy who's been on the team for 2 weeks.

I wasn’t saying it was a revenge game and Andy would change his play calling but what I was saying is that with Bell AND CEH they now have two credible rushers.   I’m could easily see KC jumping out to a lead and Andy abandoning the passing game and feeding his two rushers and pounding the ball down their throats.  If they get enough of a lead and the run game is successful, Mahomes could be done in the early 3rd quarter.

lol. Some people were worried he’d be benched by halftime, should they start him or bench him for a lesser guy with a better matchup? 
 

Start your studs folks. 5 TDs and 40+ fantasy points so far with a bunch of time left.

Patrick Mahomes completed 31-of-42 passes for 416 yards and five touchdowns in the Chiefs' Week 8 game against the Jets. 

With the Chiefs predictably humiliating the Jets 35-9, Mahomes rested for the final 9:22. It's the second straight week Mahomes has received an early breather, though unlike Week 7 in Denver, he heads to the bench with monster fantasy numbers. Mahomes decked Gregg Williams' pathetic defense for scores of 30, 36, three, 26 and 41 yards. The first was a Mecole Hardman jet sweep that Mahomes got credit for, while the fifth was a bomb down the left sideline where Tyreek Hill got a step on a falling Bless Austin. No. 3 was an underhanded softball-type pitch to Travis Kelce near the goal line. Mahomes will enter his Week 9 start against the Panthers with 21 touchdowns compared to one pick. He is on pace for 4,630 yards at the seasons's midway point. Those numbers are like Aaron Rodgers in his prime, though still off Mahomes' MVP 2018.

Patrick Mahomes completed 37-of-49 passes for 462 yards and three touchdowns in the Chiefs' 27-24, Week 12 win over the Bucs.

He added 28 rushing yards on four attempts. This was Mahomes' fifth 400-yard passing game in his career and second of the season. All three touchdowns went to Tyreek Hill from 75, 44, and 20 yards out, and Mahomes could've had an even bigger afternoon if he hadn't missed a wide-open Mecole Hardman for what should have been a walk-in 89-yard score. The throw was well behind Hardman who had nobody around him in the middle of the field. Mahomes is obviously the best player on the planet and gets a luscious Week 13 draw against the Broncos.

Patrick Mahomes completed 25-of-40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 13 win over the Broncos.

Mahomes and the Chiefs outlasted the Broncos in a game that was closer than expected. This was the second time Mahomes has struggled against Denver after being held to 200 yards and a single touchdown when they met earlier this year. Mahomes had two touchdowns to Tyreek Hill taken off the board, one for holding and the other on a bad call the Chiefs didn't challenge. He salvaged his night with 26 rushing yards and a third-quarter TD to Travis Kelce. Mahomes still managed to throw for 300-plus yards for the eighth time this season. Mahomes has another tough matchup in Week 14 against a Dolphins secondary that's allowed the second fewest passing touchdowns.

Patrick Mahomes completed 26-of-47 passes for 254 yards and three touchdowns in the Chiefs' 32-29 Week 15 win against the Saints, adding seven rushes for 37 yards. 

Mahomes didn't play particularly well and still ended up with three scores. He faced immense pressure throughout, taking four sacks and constant hits from the Saints front seven. New Orleans took away everything deep for Mahomes and the KC pass catchers, forcing Mahomes to check down time and again. Mahomes' 36 touchdown passes sits four behind league leader Aaron Rodgers. He has tremendous upside against a porous Falcons secondary in Week 16.

Patrick Mahomes completed 24-of-44 passes for 278 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the Chiefs' 17-14, Week 16 win over the Falcons. 

This was a game the Chiefs merely survived, sleepwalking to the AFC's No. 1 overall seed thanks in part to the Falcons' Younghoe Koo missing a game-tying 39-yard field goal with 0:14 remaining. Mahomes was lucky to escape with only one turnover, as he appeared to throw a back-breaking end zone interception with 2:07 remaining. A.J. Terrell could not complete the catch and Mahomes used his eyes to move the corner for a 25-yard touchdown strike to Demarcus Robinson one play later. On the interception he did throw, Mahomes did not see LB Foyesade Oluokun dropping into the passing lane. Mahomes' first score was a four-yarder to Travis Kelce. Amusingly, Mahomes was the intended target on a Sammy Watkins interception on a trick play. With home-field advantage now assured, we probably won't see much, if any, of Mahomes in Week 17 against the Chargers.

PATRICK MAHOMES QB, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

The Chiefs' starters are unlikely to play in Week 17 against the Chargers. 

Head coach Andy Reid has a long history of resting his starters when his team can't improve their playoff positioning. Kansas City locked down the No. 1 seed Sunday with its lackluster victory over the Falcons. As head coach of the Eagles, Reid benched or limited his starters in Week 17 with nothing to play for. In 2017, Patrick Mahomes got his first pro start in Week 17 with Alex Smith held out ahead of the playoffs. Holding out KC's starters will have an outsized impact on the Week 17 DFS landscape. 2019 fantasy football tout legend Darwin Thompson could see major snaps against the Chargers.

Patrick Mahomes completed 21-of-30 passes for 255 yards and a touchdown, and ran three times for 14 yards and a touchdown before being forced from the Chiefs' Divisional Round game against the Browns with a concussion

Already battling a toe injury, Mahomes was for some reason called on to run an option on a 3rd-and-short late in the third quarter. He got lit up on an awkward hit and came up obviously woozy. It was bizarre because Mahomes' head did not make forceful contact with the ground, but his head/neck were contorted in an unnatural way. “He got hit in the back of the head. He’s doing great right now," Reid said. "So that’s a positive. He passed all of the deals he had to pass.” That's not how a doctor would put it, but Mahomes was already tweeting following the Chiefs' nail-biting hold on their home field. Mahomes does not have a history of concussions, at least at the professional level. It sounds like he will be out there against the Bills next Sunday, but he has a number of non-negotiable hurdles he must clear first.

Patrick Mahomes is in the NFL's concussion protocol. 

Mahomes left Sunday's Divisional Round victory in the second half and did not return after suffering the brain injury. "We'll follow that and see how he does the next couple of days," Andy Reid said Monday, a day after he said Mahomes was "doing great" in a generally optimistic statement on his star QB. If Mahomes can't clear the league's protocol this week, Chad Henne would start for KC in the AFC title game against Buffalo. Mahomes' practice participation will be worth watching throughout the week.

Patrick Mahomes (concussion) will have a "light practice" Wednesday.

Mahomes has "no symptoms" but remains in the concussion protocol. He'll likely be listed as limited or DNP. The Chiefs plan to ramp up Mahomes's reps later in the week. Mahomes is also dealing with a foot injury, but this puts him on track to start in the AFC Championship against the Bills.

Patrick Mahomes (concussion) was limited during Thursday's practice. 

Mahomes, who remains in the league's concussion protocol after suffering a brain injury last week against the Browns, "took all the reps" in Wednesday's practice, per head coach Andy Reid. Mahomes took the majority of the practice snaps on Thursday. Mahomes is on track to suit up in the AFC Championship Game against the Bills this Sunday. "The Chiefs wouldn't be using all of this practice time on a QB who they didn't think was going to play," said ESPN's Adam Teicher, who covers the Chiefs.

Patrick Mahomes was cleared from the league's concussion protocol.

As expected. Mahomes himself even said he'll "be able to go out there and be myself" on Sunday. Mahomes was never expected to miss the Conference Championship round, but the fact he's been cleared over 48 hours leading up to kick-off is terrific news

Patrick Mahomes said his toe is "feeling a lot better."

Mahomes was clearly struggling to move on what likely was a turf toe injury last week, but he said the injury has improved a lot in recent days. He even went as far as saying "it wasn't as bad as it looked." Mahomes will start against the Bills on Sunday after clearing the concussion protocol, but the toe injury will be a storyline. During his playoff career, Mahomes has been more lethal on the ground. With Mahomes' injury status clearing up, the betting market has settled on Chiefs as -3 or -3.5 favorites.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is dealing with turf toe in his left foot but is not expected to need surgery after the season.

Rapsheet added that Mahomes will meet with a specialist after the season to ensure that surgery isn't needed. Mahomes will not be perfectly healthy for the Chiefs' AFC Championship game versus the Bills but even a less than 100 percent Mahomes is still capable of greatness. He did miss a few throws late in last week's game but still played well. The biggest difference will be his lack of running ability. Mahomes hit another level as a runner in the playoffs last year but this injury makes it unlikely that he'll repeat the same performances this postseason. Mahomes ceiling takes a small hit but he remains the top QB for DFS purposes this week.

FOX's Jay Glazer reports Patrick Mahomes (toe) has been fitted with a "special orthotic" for the AFC Championship Game against the Bills. 

Per Glazer, the Chiefs are "very concerned," and Mahomes could require offseason surgery. Glazer confirms the toe was a bigger issue during practice this week than Mahomes' concussion, which apparently wasn't actually a concussion. Scrambling for first downs like mad in 2020, Mahomes' foot could loom large as the Chiefs look to repeat as AFC champions.

Patrick Mahomes completed 29-of-38 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 5 yards on 5 carries in the Chiefs' 38-24, AFC Championship win over the Bills.

The Chiefs are headed back to the Super Bowl as they look to repeat. This time it will be Tom Brady on the other side, as K.C. squares off with the Bucs in Tampa Bay two weeks from now. Mahomes was totally flawless in this one, completing over 76% of his throws at 8.6 yards per clip. His first touchdown was a three-yard screen to Mecole Hardman. The final two were one- and five-yard hookups with Travis Kelce, with the first coming on an underhanded flip at the goal line. It's always something with Mahomes, who every week proves he's the best player in the sport. Mahomes was 37-of-49 for 462 yards and three touchdowns when the Chiefs faced the Bucs in Week 12.

PATRICK MAHOMES QB, KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

Quarterbacks facing this Bucs this season completed 67.88 percent of their passes. 

A mere six teams gave up a higher completion rate in the 2020 regular season. QBs facing Tampa in the postseason have completed 61.9 percent of their passes. A pass funnel defense -- 75.5 percent of yards gained against Tampa came through the air -- the Bucs consistently gave up efficient passing performances. They now face Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl -- the same guy who roasted the Bucs in Week 12 for 462 yards and three touchdowns while completing 75.5 percent of his throws. The Bucs are going to have to pour on the points if they're going to keep pace with Mahomes and the KC offense.

Patrick Mahomes said his toe injury is "pretty close to 100 percent."

He suffered the toe injury in the Divisional Round against Cleveland before he left the game with a concussion. Mahomes said rest has helped with the toe issue. It didn't seem to hobble him in the AFC title game against Buffalo, as he rushed five times for five yards and displayed his usual pocket elusiveness. The injury shouldn't hinder Mahomes in his bid for a Super Bowl repeat this Sunday.

Reading the scouting reports on his effectiveness is hilarious. Play zone? He reads it and will shred you. Blitz? He's at his most effective against the blitz, light years better than any other QB. Sit in cover two deep? He'll go underneath. One high? Hill for the touchdown.

Sunday is going to be tough for Tampa. Better hope KC decides they'll just run the football into your front seven. Which they won't. Almost ever.

Hope Brady can keep up or that the DL can somehow get to him.

Yea he’s awesome against the blitz. Bucs best hope is Vea/Suh/JPP and Shaq collapse the pocket and you can keep 7 back in coverage. The Bucs have the defensive talent to do it, but they’re going to have to harass him and hit him a lot. Teams have put the brakes on the Chiefs offense this year though, it’s not impossible, but they’re obviously very good.

I'm know you're right because I watched them all year along with Jacksonville (of all teams) for fantasy purposes. Can't really remember the game or scheme that did it, but they got bogged down occasionally because -- I think -- they weren't really effective running the ball and teams dropped seven or eight even into coverage, too. That's sounding like the way to do it. We'll see. The sideline statue (Bowles) loves his uneven blitzes, that's for sure.

Jets fan here. I watched that for a few years.

Lol yea he’s a good DC. Heard and things about him as an HC though but I’m happy to have him. 
 

Bucs are already the best team against the run and with Vea back they should be better. We’ll see. I’m confident but not stupid. We can definitely get slaughtered by this guy.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Reports Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will undergo offseason foot surgery to repair his toe.

Rapsheet added that Mahomes will see a specialist for his injury but it isn't expected to fully heal without surgery. Mahomes has been dealing with a turf toe injury since his Divisional Round win over the Browns. His injury clearly hobbled him toward the end of that game which ultimately saw Chad Henne close out the fourth quarter. He may have been slightly affected by the injury in the AFC Championship but you wouldn't have known based on his 325 yards and three scores. His turf toe isn't likely to play a role in the Super Bowl unless something happens to exacerbate the injury in-game.

Patrick Mahomes completed 26-of-49 passes for 270 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions in the Chiefs' 31-9, Super Bowl LV loss to the Bucs. 

The double-digit loss was 25-year-old Mahomes' first as a pro. Stunning. It wasn't stunning if you watched the game, as toe-hobbled Mahomes simply had no prayer behind an offensive line missing both its starting tackles. Even as it was open season, Mahomes nearly converted several jaw-dropping throws only to see his receivers drop them. It was just that kind of night for the Chiefs. North America’s highest-paid athlete, Mahomes coasted to another monster campaign this season, placing second in passing yards (4,740) and fourth in touchdowns (38) despite sitting out Week 17. He tossed only six interceptions — giving him 11 across his past 29 regular season starts — while completing a career-high 66.3 percent of his passes. Gifted at knowing when to scramble for a first down, Mahomes was essentially indefensible. With Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce both locked in for 2021, Mahomes will remain the overwhelming favorite to finish as fantasy’s QB1.
