News: 7 days agoMahomes completed 32 of his 47 passes for 397 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 31-13 win over Washington.
Spin: Mahomes led the Chiefs to only 10 points in the first half, in part because he threw two interceptions. After his struggles in Week 5, there was significant reason to worry about his performance. However, he roared back to complete 13 of 23 passes for 222 yards and two touchdowns in the second half to post his highest passing yardage total of the season. On the campaign, Mahomes has recorded multiple passing touchdowns in every game and has topped 300 yards in three of six contests.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: If not for resting in Week 17 last season, Mahomes may have paced the QB position in fantasy points for the second time in three seasons. Regardless, the 25-year-old still managed his third straight elite showing, ranking top five in pass attempts, passing yards, passing TDs and YPA while also finishing 10th among QBs in rushing yards. Kansas City's overhauled offensive line should cure the pass-blocking woes that plagued the team during the Super Bowl loss and Mahomes will be working in the Chiefs' extremely pass-heavy scheme with the likes of Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce at his disposal. The former league and Super Bowl MVP should be the first QB selected in your fantasy draft.
