Draft note
by John Paulsen
Mahomes suffered a knee injury in Week 7, and when that game is ignored, he posted the second-highest per game average after Lamar Jackson in 2020. He also injured his throwing hand in Week 14, so given the fact that he was nicked up, he still had a very good season. In the postseason, he averaged 300 yards and 3.3 passing touchdowns. Mahomes should once again be one of the best fantasy producers at his position.

KC QB Patrick Mahomes - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Patrick Mahomes was still dominant in his second season, proving his first season as a full-time starter wasn’t a fluke. He finished as the No. 8 overall QB despite missing two games, and only playing 20 snaps in one. His fantasy points per game average was second in the league (behind Lamar Jackson) if you exclude the game he barely played in Week 7. He had nine games with three total touchdowns or more last season (including postseason). He also cut down on his turnovers, going from 12 in 2018 to just 5 in 2019.

It’s hard to find that high level of consistency anywhere else among quarterbacks.

Fantasy Downside
Mahomes regressed in year two from his first full season as starter. Most notably were his touchdowns, which went from 50 to 26. He also dropped about 30 average yards per game. Mahomes had a hot-and-cold 2019 on a game-to-game basis as he had seven games with one passing touchdown or less.

2020 Bottom Line
Mahomes had a worse 2019 than many projected, but he was still one of the best fantasy quarterbacks you can have. He had to deal with his No. 1 target (Tyreek Hill) missing four games, a knee injury and a hand injury all last season. With another year of development and strong weapons around him, Mahomes should improve his overall fantasy numbers in 2020. He should be viewed as one of the top scoring threats this season.
