View QB Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • Mahomes racked up 4,839 passing yards and 37 TDs last season. Both marks ranked 4th league-wide.
  • He completed 66.3% of his passes – his 4th straight season with a completion rate between 65.9% and 66.3%.
  • Mahomes’ 7.4 yards per attempt last year was easily a career low. It ranked 13th among 33 qualifiers.
  • Defenses keyed on Kansas City’s deep passing game. As a result …
    • Mahomes’ 7.6-yard average depth of throw was a career low and ranked 30th among 36 qualifiers.
    • Just 9.7% of his passes traveled 20+ yards downfield – also a career low and 29th among those 36 qualifiers.
  • Mahomes was still excellent when he threw deep.
    • His 47.4% completion rate on passes of 20+ yards ranked 4th.
    • He ranked 8th in Pro Football Focus’ deep passing grades.
  • Mahomes finished 4th among QBs in both total fantasy points and fantasy points per game.
    • His 12 top-12 scoring weeks tied Justin Herbert for most among QBs.
    • Mahomes scored as a top-5 QB 5 times – tied for 6th most.
  • His finishes in fantasy points per game in his first 3 seasons as Kansas City’s starter:
    • 2018 - 1st
    • 2019 - 6th
    • 2020 - 3rd
  • The Chiefs traded WR Tyreek Hill to Miami in March.
  • Here’s the percentage of Mahomes’ passing fantasy points Hill accounted for in each of the last 4 seasons:
    • 2018 - 27.5%
    • 2019 - 18.7%
    • 2020 - 32.3%
    • 2021 - 26.0%
  • The Chiefs also lost WRs Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson this offseason. Those 2 combined for 15.0% of the Chiefs’ targets, 15.0% of the receptions, 16.9% of the receiving yards and 21.6% of the receiving scores last year.
  • The Chiefs made 3 big additions at WR this offseason:
    • JuJu Smith-Schuster signed a 1-year, $3.25 million deal. A shoulder injury limited him to just 5 games last season, and he underwhelmed the previous 2 years. But Smith-Schuster posted 58-917-7 and 111-1,426-7 lines in his first 2 NFL campaigns and is still only 25.
    • Marquez Valdes-Scantling inked a 3-year, $30 million deal. He boasts 4.3 speed and averaged 17.5 yards per catch in Green Bay over the last 4 seasons.
    • Skyy Moore arrived in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. The Western Michigan is coming off a big 95-1,292-10 line in 2021, finishing 3rd in Pro Football Focus’ receiving grades.
  • TE Travis Kelce, WR Mecole Hardman and RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire also return for the Chiefs.
  • The 2021 Chiefs ranked 6th in Pro Football Focus’ pass-blocking grades and 4th in Football Outsiders’ Adjusted Sack Rate. They return all 5 starters for 2022.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Mahomes ranked 4th among QBs in fantasy points last year – following 1st, 6th and 3rd-place finishes the previous 3 seasons.

The big story heading into 2022, of course, is the departure of WR Tyreek Hill, who’s accounted for about a quarter of Mahomes’ passing fantasy points over the last 4 years.

The Chiefs added WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Skyy Moore and return TE Travis Kelce, WR Mecole Hardman and RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, so there’s still plenty to work with here. Mahomes will operate behind a strong offensive line.

His elite skill set keeps his fantasy floor high. But the loss of Hill undoubtedly lowers Mahomes’ fantasy ceiling. There’s a good chance he goes too early in your fantasy draft this year.

Patrick Mahomes, QB KC

Patrick Mahomes full-go again Thursday

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) put in another full practice on Thursday. It means that ankle responded well to Wednesday's full workout. Mahomes will start Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals -- and it's looking like the ankle won't be a major limiting factor.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) will play in Sunday's AFC Championship game vs. the Bengals. Mahomes "worked hard on the treatment and is doing OK," Reid said, adding that this high-ankle sprain isn't as bad as the one Mahomes suffered in 2019. That injury occurred in the season opener and didn't cost Mahomes any further time. There wasn't much doubt that Mahomes would play against Cincinnati this weekend, considering he returned to the win over Jacksonville. The question is to what extent the ankle injury will impact his performance. We'll keep a close eye on the situation throughout the week. The Chiefs are currently just 1-point favorites over the Bengals, suggesting some concern about Mahomes' status.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes hurt his right ankle in the 1st quarter of Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the Jaguars. He initially remained in the game but eventually headed back to the locker room with trainers and gave way to QB Chad Henne. X-rays on Mahomes' ankle came back clean, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, "but it does appear to be a high-ankle sprain." Mahomes will return for the 2nd half of this game. We'll see how that ankle holds up.
