Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes, Sammy Watkins connecting

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 10:16:30 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and WR Sammy Watkins already appear to have a good rapport. Their connection has been a "consistent sight" throughout the offseason program. WR Chris Conley said Watkins has been picking up the offense quickly and CB Steve Nelson added that Watkins has been putting in more time to work out.

Fantasy Tip: Drafting Watkins to your fantasy squad is a tempting but difficult affair. He did score a career-high eight times last season, but only caught 39 passes for 593 yards. The upside is apparent and Watkins has the ability to achieve WR2 numbers, but it would behoove fantasy gamers to select him as a WR3.

Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes struggling

Fri, 25 May 2018 19:21:03 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' struggles during OTAs are nothing to be worried about, according to head coach Andy Reid. "We throw in a lot of new stuff so you want to test what you can get away with in these camps, so you're going to have interceptions," Reid said. "That doesn't bother me."

Fantasy Tip: Mahomes is unproven as he enters his first season as the starter, but he has a big arm and plenty of weapons around him. He will be a high-risk, high-reward QB2.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City suddenly has a crowded receiving corps, but if Mahomes excels, Robinson could be a nice depth option for fantasy owners in PPR formats.

Chiefs | Travis Kelce confident in Patrick Mahomes

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 20:47:28 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce said that he knows QB Patrick Mahomes is "ready for the opportunity" and that the club can "without a doubt" win a championship with Mahomes under center. "He can throw the ball any way, he can throw it off his back foot and he can jump and throw, he can throw the ball anywhere, any way you need for it to be thrown," Kelce added. "His confidence is definitely one of the best attributes to his game."

Fantasy Tip: One of the biggest transitions in all of football next season will see how the Chiefs fare moving on from Alex Smith to Mahomes, their 2017 first-round pick whom they drafted out of Texas Tech. The 22-year-old received one start in his rookie campaign -- a meaningless Week 17 tilt in Denver -- and didn't disappoint, racking up 284 yards on 62.9 percent passing. While his ceiling is high, he'll begin the season as more of an option for two-quarterback formats.

Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes to draw Week 17 start

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 09:59:22 -0800

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid announced QB Patrick Mahomes will make his first career start in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It's a smart move by the Chiefs, who are locked into the fourth seed in the AFC and have nothing to gain by rolling out Alex Smith. The rookie is blessed with the rocket arm and has drawn both good and bad comparisons to Brett Favre, but he's in for a tough first start against a revitalized Denver defense. He's a QB2 at best in Week 17.

Chiefs | KC doesn't have plans to start Patrick Mahomes

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 08:08:06 -0800

The Kansas City Chiefs are still planning to have QB Patrick Mahomes take a "redshirt season" this year, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, although the idea of him making an appearance in a game has not been taken off the table.

Fantasy Tip: Mahomes is running the scout team in practice and hasn't run the team's plays at full speed since the fourth week of the preseason, so starting QB Alex Smith doesn't appear to be in imminent danger of losing his job. Mahomes only has fantasy value in dynasty and keeper leagues at this point.
