Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) was able to put in a full practice on Wednesday. Mahomes had an injury scare in the blowout win over the Chicago Bears in Week 3 when his right ankle was rolled up on, but he remained in the game and wasn't limited in the team's first practice of the week. Unless the 28-year-old suffers a setback with his ankle later this week, he won't be in any danger at all of missing the Sunday night showdown in New York against the Jets. Mahomes and the Chiefs offense was firing on all cylinders last Sunday, a great sign for fantasy managers moving forward. They'll face a pretty stingy Jets defense this weekend, but Mahomes is a must-start, regardless of matchup in fantasy.

Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle), who was limping at one point in the Week 3 blowout win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday after getting his ankle rolled up, is "all good," according to a source. He's not dealing with a serious injury and should be fine for the Sunday night game in Week 4 against the New York Jets. The 28-year-old went 24-for-33 for 272 yards and three touchdowns in the 41-10 thumping of the Bears, adding three carries for 28 yards with his legs. The Chiefs and fantasy managers dodged a bullet here, but his ankle will be something to watch heading into a tough Week 4 matchup on the road against once of the better defenses in the NFL. Despite the tough matchup, Mahomes is a must-start, high-end QB1 week in and week out.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) completed 24-of-33 passes for 272 yards and three touchdowns with three carries for 28 yards in Week 3's 41-10 beatdown on the Chicago Bears. The 28-year-old passed for a few short scores to Jerick McKinnon early on Sunday, but had a longer touchdown to Marquez Valdes-Scantling nullified by an illegal formation penalty during the first half. It didn't take long before this one unraveled for Chicago, as Mahomes virtually sleepwalked his way to 221 yards and two scores before the second half. The superstar found Travis Kelce for a 10-yard TD before his day came to a close. Mahomes experienced a brief injury scare after Yannick Ngakoue fell awkwardly on his ankle late in the first half, so fantasy managers might see the reigning MVP have his practice reps managed, or pop up on Week 4's injury report. There's not much reason at this time to believe that his status is in any kind of jeopardy for next Sunday night against the New York Jets.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes squares off with the Chicago Bears in Week 3 after exceeding the 300-yard threshold in last Sunday's clash against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old hopes for his first three-touchdown effort of the campaign after accomplishing this feat on eight occasions a year ago. The Bears defense has submitted the NFL's highest opponent passer rating (118.3) to Jordan Love and Baker Mayfield over the opening two games, and have only posted one sack thus far. It's a glaring smash spot for Mahomes on Sunday perhaps as Week 3's top-ranked QB1 after Chicago's defensive coordinator suddenly resigned ahead of this contest. While there's some blowout risk attached to this game that could reduce passing volume, season-long managers can obviously trust the reigning MVP as perhaps Week 3's most bankable play at the position.

The Kansas City Chiefs restructured quarterback Patrick Mahomes' contract on Monday, giving him $210.6 million between this year and 2026, the most money in NFL history over a four-year span. He will also be guaranteed that money. The Chiefs and Mahomes plan to revisit the agreement again after the 2026 season, according to Chris Cabott, who negotiated the deal on behalf of Mahomes. The 28-year-old superstar QB looked better in a low-scoring win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 2 on Sunday, going 29-for-41 with 305 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He hasn't quite looked like the MVP candidate that he normally is so far, but it certainly helped that he got All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce back after Kelce missed Week 1 with a knee injury.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 29-of-41 passes for 305 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old chucked one into double coverage while he was hit for a second-quarter pick amidst a sloppy Chiefs first half. Mahomes salvaged the offense's listless initial two quarters with a pass from nine yards out for a Skyy Moore score in K.C.'s final drive of the half. Mahomes then hooked up with the returning Travis Kelce from nine yards out again for his second TD pass. On a humid day in the Florida heat, both offenses struggled to hold up their ends of the bargain in what was anticipated to be a potential shootout. Week 3's welcoming in of the erratic Justin Fields may not hold the same high-scoring prospects as Week 2 did. The reigning MVP should be licking his chops versus a Chicago Bears defense, however, that's had trouble keeping in check Jordan Love and Baker Mayfield during the opening two weeks.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks to bounce back in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars from a subpar Week 1 performance by his lofty standards. The 27-year-old performed better than his 226-yard, two-touchdown, one-interception line would indicate after being plagued by at least six receiver drops without top target Travis Kelce (knee). Kelce will return for Sunday's contest, solidifying Mahomes as one of the weekend's premier QB1 plays. Jacksonville's defense sacrificed the sixth-most passing yards (4258) last year, and they just allowed raw rookie Anthony Richardson to finish as Week 1's overall QB4 in his NFL debut. Mahomes also tagged the Jags for a 74% completion rate (48-of-65), 526 yards, and a 6:1 TD:INT in two 2022 meetings including the AFC Divisional Round. Several other top fantasy QB1s reside in potentially high-scoring environments, so Mahomes' DFS rostership might be lower than expected despite this game presenting the slate's highest projected point total.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 21-of-39 attempts for 226 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. He added a team-high 45 rushing yards on six carries. The 27-year-old had to expectedly improvise in a game without Travis Kelce (knee), notably completing seven passes to seven different receivers in the first half. Mahomes didn't miss a beat early, going 12-for-17 for 147 yards and two touchdowns in the first half. Mahomes' third-quarter pick-six was hardly his fault after an accurate throw glanced off Kadarius Toney's fingertips. Mahomes' impeccable pocket maneuverability was on full display in this one, avoiding any sacks despite plenty of pressures. The superstar did his best to try and manufacture offense, dealing with numerous drops. The reigning MVP will be right back on the elite QB1 map in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, hopefully with Kelce in there.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks to ring in the new year on Thursday versus the Detroit Lions. The reigning MVP finds himself in a wonderful spot to start 2023 against a Lions defense that was gashed for more fantasy points per game to QBs (20.24) than any other in 2022. The 27-year-old could be missing superstar Travis Kelce (knee) for this one, however, putting a slight damper on an otherwise mouthwatering draw. Mahomes possesses overall QB1 upside every week, but with fellow superstars Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts in tougher matchups during the opening week, Mahomes might be the most appealing DFS play of the three. It's also worth noting that Mahomes owns a stellar 119.7 passer rating, 10.0 air yards per attempt, and 49:4 TD:INT in 16 career September outings, and an 11:1 TD:INT in five career Thursday contests.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 10 out of 15 pass attempts for 105 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 38-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals. After the 27-year-old was slated for a quarter of play last week but only saw one series, Mahomes got in the entire opening period in this one. Though, head coach Andy Reid planned on his superstar signal-caller playing into the second quarter. In any event, Mahomes was his usual amazing self, improvising on a few occasions to try and extend plays and give his receivers a chance to make plays. The reigning MVP is an obvious top-shelf QB1 in fantasy drafts this summer.
