Patrick Mahomes Not Slowed By Ankle

Wednesday, September 27, 7:18 PM

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.

Joe Burrow News

Joe Burrow Listed As Full Practice Participant

Wednesday, September 27, 7:25 PM

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (calf) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice for the first time since the week of the Baltimore Ravens game in Week 2. However, the Bengals only held a walkthrough practice on Wednesday, so his status was an estimation. The 26-year-old strained his calf at the beginning of training camp and missed all of the preseason before aggravating the injury in Week 2. He gutted it out in the Monday night win over the Los Angeles Rams, but his mobility was very limited and he didn't look good by any means while throwing for 259 yards with no touchdowns and one interception on a great play by a Rams defensive back. The good news about Week 3 is he was finally able to get top wideout Ja'Marr Chase involved. Burrow should get better as the season progresses and his calf injury gets put behind him, but for now, he's more of a low-end QB1 in fantasy.
