Light workload in win

Mahomes completed 18 of 26 passes for 202 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Saturday's 31-13 win over the Raiders. He added three rushes for 29 yards.

Analysis: Mahomes made quick work of the Raiders defense on the Chiefs' first offensive possession, as he completed a deep 67-yard pass to Justin Watson prior to capping the drive with a two-yard pass to Jerick McKinnon to find the end zone. Kansas City continued to move the ball effectively throughout the game, though all three of the team's additional touchdowns came on the ground. With the game comfortably in hand, Mahomes attempted only nine passes in the second half. He'll end the regular season with 5,250 passing yards to go along with 41 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Three more TDs in win

Mahomes completed 29 of 42 passes for 328 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Chiefs' 27-24 win over the Broncos on Sunday. He also rushed four times for eight yards.

Analysis: The final numbers were par for the course for Mahomes, but the way he got there was a bit different from the norm. Kadarius Toney actually served as the receiving yardage leader for Kansas City on the afternoon, while Jerick McKinnon (six, three yards) and Blake Bell (17 yards) were on the receiving end of Mahomes' touchdown passes. Mahomes' three scoring tosses pushed him to 40 on the season -- the second-highest total of his career -- and served as his fourth straight multi-touchdown tally. The Chiefs remained alive for the top seed in the AFC with Sunday's win, so Mahomes and his diverse array of skill-position weapons project to be deployed as usual in a Week 18 divisional road matchup against the Raiders.

Goes for three scores Saturday

Mahomes completed 16 of 28 pass attempts for 224 yards and two touchdowns while adding another score and eight rushing yards on two carries in Saturday's 24-10 win over the Seahawks.

Analysis: Mahomes didn't need to post gaudy numbers in this comfortable victory, as Seattle rarely threatened the decision after starting the second half down two scores. The 27-year-old's short rushing touchdown brought his season total up to four, doubling his previous career high. Mahomes and the Chiefs will close out the regular season with victory lap games against AFC West opponents in Weeks 17 and 18, beginning with a home tilt against the Broncos next Sunday. Denver boasts one of the stingiest pass defenses in the NFL, but Mahomes is a matchup-proof fantasy quarterback.

Helps Chiefs to division title

Mahomes completed 36 of 41 passes for 336 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Chiefs' 30-24 overtime victory over the Texans on Sunday. He also five times for 33 yards and another score, threw a two-point conversion pass and fumbled once but recovered.

Analysis: Mahomes' near-perfect afternoon ironically came during a surprising game-long struggle for the Chiefs, who were gunning for their seventh straight AFC West title. Kansas City was ultimately able to accomplish the feat with key contributions from multiple players, with Mahomes connecting most often with Travis Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster. The star signal-caller tossed both of his scoring throws in the second quarter, connecting with Jerick McKinnon and Marquez Valdes-Scantling from 20 and four yards out, respectively. Mahomes then scored a critical rushing touchdown from five yards out early in the fourth quarter to give the Chiefs, which when paired with his two-point conversion pass to McKinnon, gave KC a three-point lead at the time. With the division title now secured, Mahomes will look to keep his now-11-win squad in contention for top playoff positioning during a Week 16 home battle against the Seahawks on Saturday afternoon.

Overcomes mistakes in Denver

Mahomes completed 28 of 42 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions in Sunday's 34-28 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: He also ran the ball three times for minus-3 yards. It's the first time in two years (Week 14 of 2020 against Miami) Mahomes got picked off three times, but his miscues only managed to let Denver hang around after Kansas City had jumped out to a 27-0 lead. Jerick McKinnon was surprisingly his biggest weapon, catching back-to-back TDs in the second quarter en route to Mahomes' seventh game this season with three or more touchdown passes. Expect him to be productive again in Week 15 against a Texans defense that just gave Dak Prescott a little trouble before giving up a 98-yard game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter.

No limitations in practice

Mahomes (foot) was a full practice participant Wednesday.

Analysis: The foot bruise he picked up in Sunday's loss to Cincinnati shouldn't be an issue for the upcoming matchup with Denver. Mahomes will be without WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen) for at least one more week, while WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday as a limited participant.

Dec 7, 2022 2:07 PM EST

Downplays foot bruise

Mahomes relayed Wednesday that he suffered a foot bruise on his final play against the Bengals this past Sunday, Matt Derrick of reports.

Analysis: That said, Mahomes indicates that he feels fine and the issue shouldn't bother him as this weekend's game against the Broncos approaches. Wednesday's injury report will clarify whether Mahomes' practice participation will be impacted at all by his bruised foot, but at this stage, there's nothing to suggest that the QB's Week 14 availability is in any danger.

Held in check through air by Cincy

Mahomes completed 16 of 27 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Bengals. he added nine yards and another TD on two carries.

Analysis: The rushing score salvaged his day to some extent from a fantasy perspective, but it was still a disappointing showing for Mahomes, who posted his lowest passing yards total of the season after averaging 364.5 yards over his prior six games. The superstar QB will look to bounce back in Week 14 against a stingy Broncos defense that held Mahomes to 454 yards across two meetings in 2021.

Dec 4, 2022 7:45 PM EST

Another 300-yard performance

Mahomes completed 27 of 42 passes for 320 yards and one touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Rams. He added 36 rushing yards on four carries.

Analysis: Kansas City wasn't able to pull away until the second half, but Mahomes still reeled off his sixth straight game with over 300 passing yards and once again hit Travis Kelce for another TD. Mahomes has already topped 3,500 passing yards on the season as he takes aim at Peyton Manning's NFL record of 5,477, and he could need to produce more fireworks in Week 13 in a showdown with Joe Burrow and the Bengals.

Clutch in SNF victory

Mahomes completed 20 of 34 pass attempts for 329 yards and three touchdowns while adding 23 rushing yards on four attempts in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Chargers.

Analysis: Mahomes was in rare form against a talented Chargers secondary despite missing top wideouts JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Mecole Hardman (abdomen). He also lost fill-in starter Kadarius Toney early in the contest to a hamstring injury, which makes Mahomes' robust stat line even more impressive all things considered. Mahomes fortunately did not lose the services of Travis Kelce, as the dynamic duo connected for three more scores in an already dominant campaign. The 27-year-old has not experienced any sort of dip in production sans Tyreek Hill in 2022, boasting 10-game totals of 3,265 passing yards and 28 touchdowns that are right on par with his dominant career norms. Mahomes and the Chiefs will take on a reeling Rams squad next Sunday.

Stellar showing in win

Mahomes completed 26 of 35 passes for 331 yards with four touchdowns and one interception in the Chiefs' 27-17 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. He also rushed seven times for 39 yards and fumbled once but recovered.

Analysis: Mahomes worked through the early exit of JuJu Smith-Schuster (head) without much issue, pivoting to targeting Travis Kelce, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, versatile running back Jerick McKinnon and newcomer Kadarius Toney with plenty of success. Mahomes connected with Toney (six yards), Valdes-Scantling (18 yards), Noah Gray (13 yards) and Kelce (seven yards) for his scoring tosses, and he'll head into a Week 11 divisional road clash against the Chargers next Sunday night having thrown multiple touchdown passes in five of his last six games.

Does it all in clutch OT victory

Mahomes completed 43 of 68 pass attempts for 446 yards, a touchdown and an interception while adding 63 rushing yards and another score on six attempts in Sunday's 20-17 overtime win over the Titans.

Analysis: Mahomes faced a stiff test in the form of a physical Titans defense, and he was up for the challenge despite a slow start for the entire offense. The superstar quarterback did everything but catch his own passes, resulting in over 500 yards yards of offense for pleased fantasy managers. Even the interception can't be blamed on Mahomes, as the usually sure-handed Travis Kelce bobbled a short pass into a waiting defender's hands. The 26-year-old stole the show down the stretch with two impressive scrambles to extend drives and send the game into overtime. All in all, it was another dominant performance from one of the game's top players. Mahomes and the Chiefs will face the Jaguars next Sunday.

Runs up score on SF

Mahomes completed 25 of 34 pass attempts for 423 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 44-23 rout of the 49ers.

Analysis: Mahomes was impeccable against a San Francisco squad that had all of its key defensive players back in action. The superstar quarterback's lone blemish was an interception off of a deflection in the second quarter. Mahomes new season highs in passing yards (423) and yards per attempt (12.4) with Sunday's masterful performance. The 26-year-old heads into Kansas City's bye week with 2,159 passing yards and a 20:4 TD:INT ratio through seven games. Mahomes and the Chiefs will resume action Nov. 6 against the Titans.

Throws two picks in Sunday's loss

Mahomes completed 25 of 40 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Bills. He added 21 rushing yards on four carries.

Analysis: It was another back-and-forth battle between the two AFC powerhouses, but after Josh Allen led a TD drive and left just one a minute on the clock in the fourth quarter, Mahomes wasn't able to answer back, instead throwing his second INT of the afternoon. The superstar QB had only been picked off twice through five games coming into Sunday, and he's tossed multiple TDs in five of six games so far in 2022. Mahomes will look to be sharper, and get back in the win column, in a Week 7 clash with the 49ers.

Oct 16, 2022 7:05 PM EST

Picks apart Raiders

Mahomes completed 29 of 43 passes for 292 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions in Monday's 30-29 win over the Raiders.

Analysis: Mahomes started slowly, as he had only 98 yards and a touchdown across the first two quarters of the game. However, he led the Chiefs' comeback effort by connecting with Travis Kelce on each of his four touchdowns and also delivered long passes of 36 and 28 yards to Mecole Hardman. It was another impressive performance for Mahomes, who now has at least three touchdowns in three of five games this season.

Makes light work of top defense

Mahomes completed 23 of 37 pass attempts for 249 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while adding 34 rushing yards on four carries in a 41-31 win over Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Mahomes and the entire Kansas City offense were nearly flawless on the road against one of the league's top defensive units entering Week 4. The only drawbacks from a fantasy perspective were the lack of yardage -- due to a constant positive field position advantage from the special teams unit -- and the one interception thrown late in the fourth quarter. The superstar quarterback otherwise looked unbothered by a defense that held Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to 14 points last week. Mahomes just endured a brutal three-week stretch of opposing defenses, so his fantasy GMs will be relieved to see a soft matchup at home against the Raiders next Monday.

Oct 2, 2022 10:33 PM EST

Falls short on road Sunday

Mahomes completed 20 of 35 passes for 262 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Chiefs' 20-17 loss to the Colts on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 26 yards.

Analysis: The star signal-caller was unable to work his magic Sunday against a desperate Colts team looking for its first win. Mahomes did display some good rapport with his top two wideouts in JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, hitting the duo on nine occasions for 137 yards on 15 targets. Mahomes also connected with Travis Kelce for his one touchdown pass from three yards out late in the first quarter. However, Mahomes was directly responsible for short-circuiting his team's final chance at a win, as his final pass of the day, intended for Smith-Schuster, was picked off by Rodney McLeod at the Colts' 36-yard line with two seconds remaining. Mahomes will look to regroup in time for a Week 4 road showdown against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.

Modest, mistake-free effort in win

Mahomes completed 24 of 35 passes for 235 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions and rushed twice for minus-1 yard in the Chiefs' 27-24 win over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Analysis: Mahomes' yardage total left plenty to be desired from a fantasy standpoint, particularly after his breakout 360-yard Week 1 effort. However, the star signal-caller turned in a solid performance in which he managed to avoid turnovers while completing his pair of scoring tosses to the unlikely duo of Jerick McKinnon and Justin Watson, the latter on a beautiful 41-yard throw across the middle on the run in the third quarter. Mahomes recorded completions to nine different targets overall, and his impeccable ball security was key to allowing the Chiefs to mount a comeback from a 17-7 deficit. Mahomes and his teammates now get some extra time off before a Week 3 road showdown with the Colts a week from Sunday.

Wrist issue a minor concern

Mahomes (wrist) said Tuesday that he was a little sore following Sunday's win over the Cardinals, but he feels a lot better, Pete Sweeney of reports.

Analysis: Mahomes injured his left wrist early in Sunday's contest and had it significantly taped up, per Sweeney. However, it didn't appear to hinder his play as he completed 30 of 39 passes for 360 yards and five touchdowns during the blowout win. The issue flared up again Monday, so he received treatment and is already feeling better. "I'm sure I'll be good to go this week," Mahomes said. By all accounts, the issue doesn't appear significant, but it's still worth monitoring with the Chiefs having a short turnaround leading into Thursday's matchup with the Chargers.

Another dominant opener

Mahomes completed 30 of 39 passes for 360 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Cardinals. He also added five yards on three carries.

Analysis: The franchise quarterback made it clear very quickly the Kansas City offense would be just fine without Tyreek Hill. Mahomes set a new personal record by completing 12 straight passes at one point, and he found nine different receivers over the course of the game. The 26-year-old remains nearly perfect in Week 1 contests -- in five season openers during his career so far, he's completed 72.5 percent of his passes while averaging 308.4 yards and compiling an incredible 18:0 TD:INT.
