News: 1 day agoMahomes (ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday.
Spin: Mahomes had his right ankle rolled up on in the waning moments of the first half this past Sunday against the Bears. He was able to stay in the game and then led the offense after the mid-game break, and despite getting subbed out early in the 41-10 blowout win, he still completed 24 of 33 passes for 272 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions while notching 28 more yards on three carries. With an uncapped session under his belt to kick off Week 4 prep, Mahomes is good to go ahead of Sunday's visit to the Jets.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Many expected a step back for Mahomes last season following the departure of top target Tyreek Hill. So much for that. Mahomes proceeded to lead the league in passing yards (career-high 5,242), pass TDs (41) and fantasy points (417) en route to winning league MVP and the Super Bowl. Mahomes' fantasy floor was absurdly high, as his worst weekly finish was 13th in Week 2. He continues to load up the box score through the air and also posted career-high marks in rushing yards (358) and TDs (four) last season. Kansas City's WR room is unproven but has plenty of potential in youngsters Kadaraius Toney, Skyy Moore and Rashee Rice. Mahomes enters his age-27 season locked in as an elite fantasy option in Andy Reid's pass-heavy offense.
