Summary

Mahomes built on Alex Smith's success in Andy Reid's spread offense, earning the NFL's MVP and Offensive Player of the Year Awards. Mahomes set team records, absorbing and executing Reid's voluminous playbook as if he was a five-year veteran at the top of his game. Although likely loss of Tyreek Hill will be a blow to this offense, Mahomes's talents should not be underestimated. He topped Alex Smith's 2017 production in the offense by 1,000 yards and 24 touchdowns--and did it with only 75 more attempts, Kareem Hunt only playing 11 games, and Sammy Watkins missing 6 games with an injury. Mahomes also did a strong job making second-half adjustments against teams that game-planned effectively during the first half of contests. Mahomes has a special mind and arm for the game. He may not match 2018's production, but it would be wise to bet on him as an elite fantasy passer once again in 2019. (May 22)

Latest News

Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes to focus on footwork (Sat Jun 15, 11:28 AM) - Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said that he would work on his footwork during the period between minicamp and training camp. He said that he misses many plays because his feet are in the wrong position and he relies too heavily on his arm.

Our View: Mahomes has the arm strength to make any throw from almost any platform. Falling back on that arm strength is something quarterbacks with big arms do all the time. Mahomes will work on his mechanics to enhance his accuracy. His completion percentage of 66.0 in 2018 ranked 23rd in the league.
