Mahomes completed 16 of 31 pass attempts for 295 yards and three touchdowns Sunday against the Patriots. He also carried two times for 11 yards in the 37-31 AFC Championship Game overtime loss. Mahomes struggled at times, posting a completion rate of just 52 percent as his team went scoreless into halftime. He hit several big plays in the second half, adding touchdown passes to Travis Kelce and Damien Williams (two) as he brought his team all the way back to force overtime. It was an improved performance over Mahomes' playoff debut a week ago, but unfortunately, his outstanding season comes to an end with this defeat. He lit the league up for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns during the regular season, solidifying himself as the top fantasy quarterback heading into the 2019 campaign.
Mahomes connected on 27 or 41 passes for 278 yards during Saturday's 31-13 win over the Colts. He added eight yards and a touchdown on three carries. The numbers weren't as mind-meltingly insane as some others Mahomes put up during this season's MVP campaign, but several of the throws were as the sophomore passer seemed to break the will of the Colts at times with a handful of truly ridiculous passes from a variety of arm angles. When it came to actually getting in on some of the scoring fun, Mahomes did his damage with his legs, rolling out, pumping, and diving for the corner of the end zone for a four-yard score just before halftime. The Colts tried to respond with a score right before the half, missed the field goal, and the Chiefs pumped the brakes a little bit in the second half while nursing multi-score leads. Next up for Mahomes is either the Patriots or Chargers and he figures to get a favorable matchup either way. He completed a combined 63.9 percent of his passes for 851 yards, 10 touchdowns and two picks in three games against those teams this season.
Mahomes completed 14 of 24 pass attempts for 281 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 35-3 win over Oakland. It wasn't Mahomes' biggest fantasy performance, but that was largely due to the Raiders' inability to keep the game close. The MVP candidate reached the 5,000-yard and 50-touchdown mark with an 89-yard bomb to Demarcus Robinson in the third quarter, joining Peyton Manning as the only other QB to reach those marks in a single season. The win secured the Chiefs with a first-round bye in the playoffs, so Mahomes will become DFS-eligible in the divisional series.
Mahomes completed 23 of his 40 pass attempts for 273 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Seahawks. He also added three carries for 33 yards. Mahomes wasn't particularly efficient as he averaged only 6.8 yards per attempt, but still put up a strong performance on the strength of his three scores. He added to his list of highlight reel touchdowns when he found Charcandrick West on the run midway through the third quarter for a 25-yard touchdown. He also chipped in 33 rushing yards -- his third-highest total of the season -- and is now approaching 300 yards on the ground for the season. With the AFC West still up for grabs, Mahomes enters Week 17 against the Raiders needing only two passing scores to cross the 50-touchdown threshold.
Mahomes completed 35 of 53 attempts for 377 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 27-24 win against the Ravens. Trotting onto the field facing a touchdown deficit with 4:04 remaining in regulation against the Ravens, Mahomes was entrusted with a golden opportunity to further bolster his sterling MVP resume. With help from a miraculous cross-field throw to Tyreek HIll that yielded 48 yards, Mahomes led his team downfield to tie the score at 24 late in the fourth quarter, as the Chiefs eventually prevailed over Baltimore with an overtime field goal. Mahomes has been ridiculously productive from the jump this season, but he's rattled off eight straight games with multiple passing touchdowns and at least 249 passing yards (averaging 348.4 passing YPG, with five performances of four or more touchdowns over that span). In Week 15 he and Kansas City take on a Chargers defense that ranks top 10 in both passing yards allowed per game (230.9) and interceptions forced (12).
