Patrick Mahomes Fantasy Football News 2019

The x-rays on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' injured throwing hand came back clean, HC Andy Reid said Monday. So, barring some kind of setback, Mahomes will play against the Broncos this weekend. We'll keep an eye on him leading up to that one.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes injured his throwing hand in the win over the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. X-rays on the hand after the game came back clean, but Mahomes is scheduled for more testing on Monday. Rapoport says there's "optimism" that Mahomes will be able to play against the Broncos this weekend but that "no one is absolutely sure" until those test results come back. We'll obviously keep a close eye on this.

The forecast for today's Raiders-Chiefs game calls for winds of 20-30 mph and gusts of 40+. That's more than enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We wouldn't bench your usual Chiefs (Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Travis Kelce), but their ceilings might be capped a bit in the wind. Raiders QB Derek Carr and WR Tyrell Williams are shaky fantasy plays today. Ditto for Ks Harrison Butker and Daniel Carlson.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday's game against the Titans. He does come with elevated risk of re-dislocating that knee cap, but Mahomes is right back to high-end QB1 status.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid refused to commit to QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) returning for Sunday's game against the Titans. “See how he handles practice,” Reid said Wednesday. “We’ll monitor it... that’s the answer for it right now... that’s what’s real.” We're tentatively expecting Mahomes to get the green light for Week 10, but fantasy owners should still have a backup plan in place.

Update: Mahomes was listed as a full participant on Wednesday -- confirmation that he's on track to play this weekend.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Vikings. It sounds like he has a realistic chance to play next week. QB Matt Moore gets another start today.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is not expected to play against the Vikings today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Although Mahomes is seemingly recovering quicker than expected, he was always a long shot for this one. A Week 10 return looks doable. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his progress this coming week. QB Matt Moore gets another start vs. Minnesota today.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings. It's an upgrade over last week, when Mahomes was ruled out on Friday. He reportedly took 2nd-team reps in practice all week, though, so we're still expecting QB Matt Moore to get the start vs. Minnesota. A Week 10 return looks realistic for Mahomes.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) remained limited in Wednesday's practice, like he was all last week. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Mahomes has an "outside chance" to return for this weekend's game against the Vikings, but a Week 10 return is more likely. We'll continue to monitor his progress.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has an "outside chance" to play against the Vikings next week and a "very realistic shot" to return for Week 10, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes got back on the practice field this week and is healing faster than expected, per Rapoport, because his knee ligaments are "naturally loose" and weren't torn when his knee cap dislocated. So the guy truly is a freak of nature. We'll continue to monitor Mahomes' rehab.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) is out for Sunday night's game against the Packers. He got on the practice field this week but never had a shot to play this weekend. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes that Mahomes has a chance to return for Week 10. It'll be Matt Moore under center for Kansas City on Sunday. He's in play in 2-QB leagues.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) will practice on Wednesday, HC Andy Reid said. QB Matt Moore will get the "majority" of the reps, Reid added. Although Mahomes hasn't officially been ruled out, it'll be Moore under center on Sunday night vs. the Packers. But it's surprising and encouraging that Mahomes is already back on the practice field. Perhaps he's back sooner than 3 weeks from now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) could return for the Week 11 game against the Chargers in Mexico City. Schefter adds, though, that the team will "exercise extreme caution" with its star QB. Kansas City has a Week 12 bye, so we still won't be surprised if Mahomes is held out until Week 13. QB Matt Moore will start at least the next 3 games vs. the Packers, Vikings and Titans.

The MRI on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' injured knee revealed no "significant additional damage" beyond the dislocated knee cap, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Mahomes will get a 2nd opinion, but the Chiefs' current "plan" is to get their QB back this season "after a brief absence," Rapoport adds. This is just about the best news we could have gotten. We're still expecting Mahomes to miss at least 3 weeks -- and the Chiefs could opt to hold him out through their Week 12 bye. But Mahomes should stay stashed on fantasy rosters. QB Matt Moore is next up on Kansas City's depth chart.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (patella) is expected to miss "at least" 3 weeks. Friday's MRI will determine whether he needs season-ending surgery, but there's "some real optimism" that Mahomes will be able to return this season, per Rapoport. This is jibes with what we heard from Dr. David Chao on Thursday night. We should have a better idea of Mahomes' outlook by Friday night.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has been diagnosed with a dislocated patella (knee cap), according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Mahomes will undergo an MRI to check for ligament damage. Former NFL head team Dr. David Chao says that Mahomes will eventually need surgery, which will sideline him for 6 to 9 months. It's possible, though, for Mahomes to return in 4+ weeks and play through the injury. We'll continue to update this situation as we learn more.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes injured his right knee on a QB sneak in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Broncos. Trainers appeared to pop the knee back into place on the field. Mahomes was able to walk off the field with trainers and headed back to the locker room. We'll update his status when we learn more. QB Matt Moore is in the game for Kansas City.

Update: Mahomes has been ruled out for the game.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes confirmed that he aggravated the ankle injury he originally suffered in Week 1 in Sunday night's loss to the Colts. "Just reaggravated it a little bit there in the first half and then got stepped on in the second half," Mahomes said. "Obviously it's going to be a little sore tomorrow." Neither Mahomes nor HC Andy Reid sounded too concerned about this after the game. Mahomes should be fine for Week 6's game against the Texans, but we'll keep an eye on him this week.

The forecast for today's Ravens-Chiefs game calls for a 70% chance of rain. There are flash flood warnings in the area, so it sounds like the rainfall could be heavy. The good news is that wind shouldn't be a major problem, with the forecast calling for 10-13 mph. We'll keep an eye on this as we get closer to 1 pm ET kickoff and adjust the Week 3 rankings as needed.
