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.
