Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 26 of 35 attempts for 259 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions at the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17 on Sunday, Jan. 2. He ran twice for 25 yards and wasn't sacked.
Huddle Up: KC heads to Denver in Week 18, and Mahomes remains a must-start in playoff fantasy action. He rushed for a TD vs. Denver in Week 13, which was the only bright spot of his 16.4-point fantasy day.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 23 of his 30 passes for 258 yards and three touchdowns in a 36-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Don't look now, but Mahomes has tossed eight touchdowns compared to just one interception over the last three games, and he and the Kansas City offense appear to be peaking down the stretch.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 31 of 47 passes for 410 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT against the Los Angeles Charges on Thursday, Dec. 16. Mahomes also ran three times for 32 yards.
Huddle Up: Whatever the rest of the NFL has figured out about defending the Chiefs continues to elude the rest of the AFC West. Over his last 10 games, Mahomes has averaged 315 yards passing, 2.5 TDs and 0.5 INTs per game in four contests against the Chargers, Raiders and Broncos; in the six non-division starts, those numbers are 263 yards, 1 TD and 1.2 INTs. Until we see the Chiefs do this against a decent defense it's best to retain a healthy skepticism, but Mahomes should be a QB1 against Pittsburgh in Week 16.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has averaged 229.5 yards per game over the last four games against the Los Angeles Chargers. He has seven touchdowns and four interceptions in those games.
Huddle Up: Those are still OK numbers, but it's not what you'd expect from him. Mahomes has thrown two TDs and two picks in the last three games. He's more of a midrange QB1 right now.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes went 20-for-24 for 258 yards and two touchdowns against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 14. He also rushed for 20 yards on four carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Mahomes threw a touchdown pass for the first time in three games this week and completed a season-high 83.3 percent of his passes. He will be facing the Los Angeles Chargers next week and should still be a starting option in all leagues.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is 91-for-138 for 1,094 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions against the Las Vegas Raiders in three games the last two seasons.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 15 of 29 passes for 184 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Dec. 5. He also ran for a 10-yard touchdown.
Huddle Up: If you were holding out hope that Mahomes and company would get things squared away during their bye I have some bad news for you. Once again, the Chiefs got off to a solid start and then completely fizzled. It's a pattern that has held true in each of their last six games with the notable exception of their dismantling of Las Vegas in Week 10. The good news for the Chiefs is that those same Raiders are on the schedule next week, so Mahomes should be a quality QB1. After that, some tough decisions may lie ahead.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 23-of-37 passes for 260 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys. He also rushed for 11 yards and lost a fumble.
Huddle Up: Mahomes looked like he was back to his top-fantasy status after a five-touchdown show in Las Vegas last week, but it was back to mediocrity in this one. Fantasy managers will need to make alternate plans with the Chiefs off in Week 12.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 35-of-50 passes for 406 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 10 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Mahomes finally did what fantasy managers drafting him high as a QB1 have been expecting him to do. It's been a slow go for Mahomes and the offense, but a visit to Vegas was the elixir to cure the offense's ills. The Chiefs host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11.

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 20-of-37 passes for 166 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 9 against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Mahomes was drafted to be a top fantasy option at his position, but he has been putting up QB2-type numbers lately, making tons of fantasy managers angry. He'll look for a bounce-back game in Las Vegas in Week 10 on Sunday Night Football.
