Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Compiles 284 yards in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahomes completed 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards and one interception during Sunday's 27-24 victory at Denver. He also rushed seven times for 10 yards.

With the Chiefs locked into the No. 4 spot in the AFC playoffs as the AFC West champion, head coach Andy Reid opted to sit regular starting quarterback Alex Smith, among other front-line skill-position players, Sunday. In Smith's place, Mahomes was able to earn his first NFL start, and he didn't disappoint in the win-loss columns. Granted, Mahomes didn't have his name next to any of the team's three touchdowns, but he directed a 67-yard drive to set of a game-winning 30-yard field goal for kicker Harrison Butker as time expired. As the postseason kicks off this weekend, Mahomes will revert to a reserve role in Saturday's wild-card outing against the Titans.

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Draws Week 17 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahomes will start at quarterback in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Broncos, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

With the Chiefs locked in as the AFC's No. 4 seed for the postseason, the team will give the 10th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft his first regular-season playing time. Veteran starter Alex Smith will thus defer to the rookie signal caller in Week 17 before reclaiming the starting gig for the first round of playoffs. Mahomes brings a tremendous arm and a degree of mobility to the table, but it remains to be seen how aggressive the Chiefs will be in terms of play calling in his NFL debut. Given his bargain price, however, Mahomes profiles as a intriguing Week 17 dice roll in daily formats.

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Will remain in backup role Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahomes will remain in a backup role during Sunday's game against the Jets after head coach Andy Reid reiterated that Alex Smith was the Chiefs' starting quarterback, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

While some members of the Chiefs' fan base may be clamoring for a change under center after the team lost for the fifth time in six games in Week 12 against Buffalo, Smith isn't completely at fault for Kansas City's demise. Though Smith, who threw 11 touchdowns against no interceptions to key the Chiefs' 5-0 start, has seen his performance taper off dramatically ever since, he's still been adequate over the last six contests, completing 63 percent of his passes and tossing eight touchdowns and four interceptions. With the Chiefs still holding a one-game edge in the AFC West, Reid isn't ready to pull the plug on the battled-tested Smith in favor of the talented, but unproven Mahomes. It still looks like the rookie first-round pick, who was highly impressive in the preseason, may have to wait until 2018 before he gets a fair shake as starter.

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Shines against Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahomes completed 10 of 14 passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 29 yards on three attempts during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati.

This was another solid showing for Mahomes. The Texas Tech product has now completed 17 of 23 passes for 137 yards and three touchdowns through his first two preseason outings. Mahomes is being groomed as the quarterback of the future, as starting-QB Alex Smith has guided the Chiefs to the postseason in three of the past four seasons. As a result, Mahomes is unlikely to see much -- if any -- playing time if things go as planed for Kansas City in 2017. Still, it appears to be a foregone conclusion that Mahomes will beat out Tyler Bray for the No. 2 QB job, and the 2017 first-round selection could emerge as a serviceable fantasy asset in the right matchups if pressed into duty.

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes: Will play third quarter Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mahomes will play the third quarter during the Chiefs' second preseason game Saturday against the Bengals, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

Mahomes will be at the helm for one quarter of Saturday's preseason contest as he looks to beat out Tyler Bray for the backup job at quarterback behind Alex Smith. The first-rounder out of Texas Tech completed seven of nine passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the opener against San Francisco, while Bray's interception helps Mahomes' case for the No. 2 spot. Smith and the first team will play the entire first half Saturday.
