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. 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. It would be wise to bet on him as an elite fantasy passer once again in 2019. (August 9)
