2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Patrick Mahomes era begins this year in Kansas City after the team traded Alex Smith to the Redskins in the offseason. Mahomes was decent in his lone start Week 17 last season, but the bigger question this year is what the Chiefs offense will look like. Coach Andy Reid took the cautious approach with Smith his first four years in Kansas City, averaging a mere 32 passes per season more than 20 yards downfield. Last year, though, Smith was unleashed, attempting 53 such passes in an explosive offense. (Ironically, he had fewer interceptions (5) than he averaged over the "cautious" period (7).) Offensive coordinator Matt Nagy is gone, replaced by Eric Bieniemy, but either way, it's still Reid's show. The 6-2, 225-pound Mahomes certainly has the arm for a vertical game. And he has plenty of weapons, starting with Tyreek Hill, who might be the league's fastest man. On the other side is new arrival Sammy Watkins, who can also stretch the field and has a bit more bulk than Hill. Then there's Travis Kelce, one of the best tight ends in football, and Kareem Hunt, who led the league in rushing as a rookie last year. All that talent might encourage Reid to be more aggressive, rather than content to ask little of Mahomes besides taking care of the ball. If Mahomes' inner gunslinger is allowed to emerge, drafting the unproven quarterback will pay off for fantasy owners. Read Past Outlooks

December 2, 2018
Mahomes completed 23 of 38 passes for 295 yards and four touchdowns, adding nine rushes for 52 yards during Sunday's 40-33 win against the Raiders.
ANALYSIS
The second-year quarterback continues to play an ungodly level, with 853 offensive yards and 10 touchdowns over Kansas City's past two games following a slight hiccup in Week 10 (career-low 249 passing yards against Arizona). Peyton Manning's all-time single-season mark of 55 touchdown passes remains within reach, as Mahomes finds himself on pace for 54.7 with games remaining against the Ravens (top-10 against the pass), Chargers (top-10), Seahawks (13th) and Raiders (14th). The hope for invested fantasy GMs is that the Texans and Patriots continue to push Kansas City for homefield advantage in the AFC, keeping Mahomes active throughout the fantasy playoffs. His upcoming matchup against Baltimore is the toughest remaining on the slate, with the Ravens allowing just 194.4 passing yards per game (second-fewest in the NFL).

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Chiefs traded up 17 spots to 10th overall to draft Mahomes, whose cannon arm, occasional recklessness and gunslinger mentality evoked comparisons on draft day to head coach Andy Reid's former student, Brett Favre. Mahomes, of course, is a long way from Favre, so Reid and the Chiefs view him as a project -- Alex Smith will start for at least another year. At 6-2, 225, with 4.8 speed, Mahomes probably won't be a huge rushing threat but should be fast enough to escape pressure and make occasional plays with his feet. The biggest knock on him is the Texas Tech system, which continually fails to produce quality NFL quarterbacks. But Mahomes has the size, athleticism and physical skills to not only buck the trend but end up as the best quarterback from this year's draft class.
