Derrick Henry was a fantasy football superstar last year and finished the season with 16 rushing touchdowns! While that's unlikely to repeat, he still belongs in the top-tier RB conversation and is a solid pick towards the back end of the first round in your draft.Draft Mahomes as either the first or second QB off the board. It's that simple.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Mahomes dropped off considerably last year as most expected but was still the #4 fantasy QB in terms of points per game despite being slowed by the injury. He is so talented with such great weapons that QB #4 seems to be his floor unless he suffers another injury. With that said, there is so much QB value to be found later in drafts, that it is almost wild to consider him at his late-second ADP.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
75+ rush yards in 18 of past 22 games (playoffs inc.) - led NFL in Yards Created (yards gain after 1st evaded tackle) and Yards After Contact/Attempt in 2019Played chunk of 2019 at sub-100% with dislocated kneecap, but was back to full glory in playoffs (3 games, 10 TD passes, 2 TD runs, 300 pass YPG, 45 rush YPG)
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Yes, Derrick Henry finished with 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns last year en route to a No. 3 finish. Yes, he was dominant in the playoffs. We still can't forget that he was the No. 14 running back in points per game before Week 10 last year, behind David Johnson and Mark Ingram. Should we automatically assume Henry picks up where he left off in 2019? My issue with Henry is that he's not involved in the passing-game, which lowers his weekly floor. That alone will allow us to choose someone like Alvin Kamara over him. Henry is best-suited as a second-round pick rather than one in the first round.We talked until we couldn't talk anymore about the regression Mahomes would face in 2019, though many didn't want to believe it. Here's the thing: He's still very good. His 5.4 percent touchdown rate is one that is easily sustainable and one he can even improve on as he continues to grow in his career. Over the last two years, he's produced QB1-type numbers in 21-of-29 games where he's played the entire game (had to leave early against the Broncos in Week 7 last year). That's a ridiculous 72.4 percent rate. To give an idea as to how crazy that is, the highest career rate outside of him since 2000 is 63.2 percent. If you want to take him as the No. 1 quarterback off the board, no one would fault you. He's worthy of a late third-round pick.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Henry led the league in rushing yards and finished the season with 1,746 yards and 18 total touchdowns on the season. His historic postseason run led to a franchise tag and with QB Ryan Tannehill back, he should be a RB1 again in 2020.Mahomes is only entering his third season and the sky is the limit for the 24-year old signal caller. He is one of the most dominant fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
3 drops on 23 targets. 2019 was his worst year of passpro according to PFF. Relying on TDs and elite production, strictly from the ground, needing a great oline, requires some big truss. 
Steven Pintado
The Fantasy Coaches
 Mahomes had a down year in terms of fantasy. I expect this offense to bounce back in 2020. espically if they can get a third down back.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Underrated aspect of Henry's blistering 8-game stretch (203/1273/11 rushing): not only is it the 2nd-most rushing yards in an 8-game stretch in history, but it comes against teams a combined 24 games above .500. @AdamHarstad
