2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
2017 top-10 NFL Draft pick Patrick Mahomes has become a favorite of late-round quarterback drafters this offseason but he might not pay dividends, at least early in the year. It's not that we shouldn't have faith in Mahomes' physical ability, but the Chiefs simply face a horrifying early season schedule, with games at the Chargers, at the Steelers, home against the 49ers, at the Broncos and home against Jacksonville in their first five contests. It simply doesn't get much worse than that. Streaming Mahomes early in the season is probably not a great idea but savvy owners might be able to acquire Mahomes and other members of the Kansas City passing game on the cheap if they start slow against this tough schedule.

One nice thing about Mahomes is that, unlike many other young quarterbacks, Mahomes would need almost a cataclysmic failure to be sat down. The only other quarterback of consequence on the roster is journeyman Chad Henne. Those drafting in best ball formats can feel safe that, as long as he's healthy, Mahomes will be behind center for the Chiefs this season.

Mahomes doesn't have top-end speed but he has enough to produce similar rushing totals to Alex Smith. He also possesses one of the most impressive arms in the entire league and has already shown it on the field in the limited playing time he's been given. There aren't many offenses in the league that possess the type of playmaking weapons that Mahomes has at his disposal (Hill, Watkins, Kelce) so the upside is there for Mahomes to be a big time producer this season but we just might have to wait awhile before it materializes into the box scores.

Mahomes-Watkins connection is "real"
FA receiver making early impression
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 14, 5:00 pm

Kansas City Chiefs
It’s been a consistent sight throughout offseason workouts, but the connection between second-year QB Patrick Mahomes and free agent WR Sammy Watkins is real, and it was once again on display Wednesday afternoon. After practice, Chiefs’ veteran WR Chris Conley said that Watkins is picking up the offense “as fast as anyone I’ve seen,” which is saying something. ( - B.J. Kissel)

FFToday's Take: Watkins has always had a ridiculously high ceiling, but injuries in 2015 and 2016 as well as a late arrival to Rams' camp last year has made him something of a bust in the minds of fantasy owners. While Watkins will certainly have his share of down games in an offense that also features Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and Kareem Hunt, he could also very easily emerge as the team's top playmaker in the passing game if he stays healthy. He's a steal at his current seventh-round ADP.
