Chiefs HC Andy Reid announced Wednesday that QB Patrick Mahomes will start this weekend's finale against the Broncos. Kansas City is locked into the AFC's #4 seed and has nothing to gain on Sunday. We doubt that RB Kareem Hunt, WR Tyreek Hill or TE Travis Kelce play much, if at all. That makes Mahomes tougher to like -- especially in a tough spot in Denver.

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.

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.
