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 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 will come to an end at this juncture. 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 24 of 34 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Chiefs' 29-28 loss to the Chargers on Thursday. He also rushed twice for three yards and fumbled once, but it was recovered by the offense.
Mahomes turned in another solid and clean stat line, and his night could have been much bigger had Tyreek Hill not had a perfectly thrown deep ball bounce off his facemask on a play where he was also guilty of an illegal shift. The second-year gunslinger did manage to extend his multi-touchdown streak to nine games, and he's now completed over 70 percent of his passes in six of his last eight games. Mahomes did manage to make his initial connection with new arrival Kelvin Benjamin, and he also demonstrated his adaptability by connecting with backup running back Damien Williams, who started in place of Spencer Ware (shoulder), on six occasions for a team-high 74 yards. Mahomes will look to help the Chiefs bounce back from their upset loss against the Seahawks in a Week 16 Sunday night road battle.
