Pack to the Future
Coming off a historic 2018 season, expectations couldn't have been higher for Mahomes heading into 2019. Unfortunately, a mid-season knee injury ruined his chances of repeating as MVP but assuming he plays 16 games this year, he may end up as league MVP. His offense is arguably the best in the league and Mahomes is only going to get better.Heading into the 2019 season there wasn't a WR more primed for a breakout than Juju Smith-Schuster and then Ben Roethlisberger got hurt. That changed Juju's entire season turning him from a WR1 to a WR3 pretty quickly. Now, with BIg Ben slated to return, Juju has a legitimate shot to finish as a WR1 in 2020. We know he has the talent, now it's just about Roethlisberger and himself staying healthy.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.After the Steelers selected Chase Claypool in the second round, they came out and said that Smith-Schuster will move back into the slot role he played while Antonio Brown was there. That's great news for his outlook, as it allows him to be mismatched with nickel cornerbacks who only come on the field at certain times. Provided Roethlisberger is healthy and returns to normal, Smith-Schuster should return low-end WR1/high-end WR2 numbers.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
With sky-high confidence, perfect seasoning and explosive weapons galore, a healthy Mahomes is set for another epic season - I'll take the over on 40 TD passes, 5k pass yardsBackend WR2 production thru Week 8 with QB Rudolph, but injuries (to JuJu, Rudolph) derailed 2nd half - Big Ben's return should help restore JuJu to WR Top 15
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
He is the best player in football and started using his legs a bit more on his super bowl run. If you are going to take a QB early, this is your guy. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mahomes is only entering his third season and the sky is the limit for the 24-year old signal caller. He signed the biggest contract in NFL history and he is poised to dominate the league for at least the next decade.A combination of 4 missed games and playing with 2nd and 3rd string quarterbacks derailed Smith-Schuster in 2019. He should rebound from 42 receptions, 552 receiving yards, and 3 receiving touchdowns, especially if Big Ben is healthy and the Big Ben of old.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Draft Mahomes as either the first or second QB off the board. It's that simple.Smith-Schuster hurt a lot of people last season with his performance combined with the price you had to pay to get him in drafts. However, Big Ben is back behind center this season, which is crucial for the offense's success a whole. While I don't believe Juju has top-5 fantasy potential this season, he should be in the conversation for a low-end WR1/high-end WR2 all year long.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Despite a horror 2019 for fantasy, where he battled injury, a brutal schedule of passing defences, Tyreek Hill's injury, an awful running game and touchdown regression, Mahomes finished as a QB1 in all but two full-game fantasy weeks. He averaged 20 points a game and hit the top 5 on six occasions but no doubt he was slowed down by knee and hand injuries so his healthy floor is even higher than that. For me, he remains the locked in dynasty and redraft QB1. Take him as early as the 3rd round.It's very difficult to project JuJu in 2020. After an amazing pair of breakout seasons, he massively disappointed thanks to injury and awful QB play. While Big Ben is back, JuJu remains a question mark thanks to the emergence of Diontae Johnson and James Washington and the arrival of Chase Claypool and Eric Ebron. I hope to see JuJu man the slot and get a large target volume but he remains a big risk you should avoid in the first two-three rounds.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 He definitely didn't take hold of the alpha roll in Pittsburgh but I think the season is mostly a wash because of the QB change. It was a bit concerning that he was outpaced in targets by Diontae. And before he gets some hype from Big Ben returning let's not forget he had less targets than Washington, and Diontae, yes he played 80 less snaps but I have my concerns. And if the rumors of not resigning him are true, and with the addition of Claypool, the Steelers apparently have concerns as well.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 A quick reminder Juju is still having a historic start to his career. He will be entering next season at only 23 years. Screaming buy after a down 2019 season.
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.
