Summary

There's a lot of optimism about Mahomes entering the 2018 season. The Chiefs embraced a spread offense that made the most of its best weaponry while also minimizing each of those player's weaknesses. The addition of Sammy Watkins will give Mahomes a receiver capable of running the entire route tree against shutdown cornerbacks, which will make it even more difficult for opponents to cheat its defense against a specific receiver. Mahomes will have moments that few NFL quarterbacks can match, but also expect moments where his aggression, creativity, and confidence to cross the line into recklessness. Alex Smith was the No. 4 fantasy quarterback in 2017. Mahomes has Smith's upside because of personnel and system continuity, but its best to account for a wider range of potential outcomes based of Mahomes' playing style and inexperience. (May 12)
