Patrick Mahomes Has More Viable Passing Options

Friday, June 21, 2:10 PM

Entering training camp this summer, The Athletic's Nate Taylor writes that quarterback Patrick Mahomes appears to have a lot more viable passing options than he did in 2023. Last year, the Chiefs started the season with Kadarius Toney as their No. 1. But this year, Toney will likely be fourth or fifth on the wideout depth chart. Mahomes showed promising chemistry with new pass-catcher Marquise Brown in OTAs and minicamp, and rookie Xavier Worthy should give the team a strong deep passing attack. Rookie tight end Jared Wiley has shown strong receiving skills behind Travis Kelce. Even if Rashee Rice is suspended as expected, Mahomes should have plenty of receivers that he trusts enter the regular season opener against the Baltimore Ravens. As the Chiefs seek an unprecedented third straight championship, Mahomes is an easy top-four fantasy QB.

Daniel Jones Likely In Make-Or-Break Year

Wednesday, July 3, 1:41 PM

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has not lived up to his status as the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Although he has a playoff win under his belt from the 2022 campaign, the rest of his career has been underwhelming. The Duke alum has thrown for 12,512 yards, 62 touchdowns, and 42 interceptions in his first 60 games and has lost 24 fumbles in his career. On the premiere episode of "Hard Knocks: Offseason with the New York Giants", general manager Joe Schoen said "This is the year for Daniel. Plan all along was [to] give him a couple years. Is he our guy for the next 10 years? Or do we need to pivot and find somebody else?" After a disastrous 2023 campaign that ended with Jones suffering a torn ACL, the idea that 2024 would be a "make-or-break" season for him was already in the minds of football fans. However, Schoen confirmed it. The 27-year-old will either sink or swim this season, and his dynasty-league value for fantasy football could see an uptick or crater to nearly zero. His pass-catching group of Malik Nabers, Jalin Hyatt, Wan'Dale Robinson, Darius Slayton, Daniel Bellinger, and Theo Johnson isn't pretty on paper, but he could be playing behind the best offensive line of his career heading into a pivotal season.
