Dynasty/Keeper Outlook

Last year's 10th pick overall in the draft, Mahomes showed enough in practices last year and then in his one week audition against the Broncos in Week 17, to make the Chiefs comfortable with sending Alex Smith off to Washington this offseason. While the numbers aren't eye-popping, it's worth noting that with the Chiefs playoff situation locked in, the late season tilt featured the Broncos defensive starters against Mahomes and a Chiefs offense than saw Kareem Hunt rush once, and Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill watch from the sidelines. That's right, Mahomes racked up 284 yards passing throwing to Demetrius Harris, DeMarcus Robinson, and Albert Wilson. Even more impressive, Kansas City won the game. His one year learning behind Smith should ultimately help him in the long run, and he arguably has the highest upside of any quarterback taken in last year's draft, including Deshaun Watson. Blessed with an absolute cannon, Mahomes can make every throw in the book. And he's no slouch as a runner either. If he is truly putting it all together at the NFL level the way the reports out of Kansas City claim, he may have a long tenure as a fantasy darling.

2018 Season Outlook

A perennial playoff team, the Chiefs opted for Mahomes going forward even after Alex Smith posted a career year. It's a pretty difficult narrative to ignore when assessing Mahomes' chances for success. Andy Reid has coaxed some monster seasons out of dual threat quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb in the past, and while Mahomes is a bit of a dice roll, his situation and supporting cast give him a massive ceiling.
