Patrick Mahomes was pulled in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game despite clearing the NFL's concussion protocol after taking a shot to the head because coach Andy Reid felt the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback needed a break.
Things didn't look good for Mahomes and his owners after taking a big hit and needing help to get off the field. It's great news Mahomes cleared protocol right away, even though he wasn't put back in a game that was already over at that point. The Chiefs offense is struggling, but owners can at least breathe a sigh of relief that it looks like Mahomes should be good to go in Week 8.
KC QB Chad Henne - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
Chad Henne will draw the start for the Chiefs in Week 17, a sign that your fantasy football league should not hold its championship game this week. Considering the Chiefs are opting to play it safe in Week 17, it's probably best to look elsewhere for your quarterback. The Chargers are a good matchup (No. 22 aFPA), but we'd expect Kansas City to go with a run-heavy approach so they can simply prepare for the playoffs. Henne isn't the absolute worst option this week, but there are plenty of better QBs available.
