 Back w/ Cowboys where he led league in FPPG prior to injury. No reason to expect anything different -- but monitor the shoulder injury
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Let's not overthink this one, folks. Mahomes is worthy of being selected as the first QB off the board and he comes with ridiculous upside week in and week out.Prescott was on pace to shatter records last season before his gruesome injury and it's going to be fun to see what he can do again this year. With a litany of receiving weapons at his disposal, Prescott should consistently put up big numbers and we know that the passing volume is going to be there. As long as Dak is healthy heading into 2021, he's absolutely going to produce for fantasy managers.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We're now 46 games into Mahomes' career as a starter, and in those games he's totaled QB1-type numbers in 69.6 percent of them. There are just two other quarterbacks who've posted those over 59.5 percent of their career since 2000, and one was Justin Herbert who has just a 15-game sample size. When Mahomes is on the field, he's producing. The question is this: By drafting him in the early rounds, which running back or wide receiver are you passing on to get him, and is the dropoff more from the quarterback you'd get in the later rounds? If you wanted to draft Mahomes in the third round, you can, but know you're going to need to hit on a player or two later in your draft to make up the ground.Here's a fun fact: Prescott's 27.0 fantasy points per game in 2020 was the second-most all-time. What makes that stat even crazier is that his 4.05 percent touchdown rate was below the league average of 4.80 percent, so there was room for more. Of the top eight single-game performances by quarterbacks in 2020, there was only one quarterback on that list twice: Prescott, and he only played four full games. With the receiving weapons he has available, the sky is the limit, though his ankle injury could hamper his rushing upside in 2021. He's certainly someone who's going to throw for a lot of yards and touchdowns, but you need the rushing upside to get into the top-three conversation, so his risk bumps him out of that conversation.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
It is hard to believe that Mahomes II is still only 25-years old and already has 114 TD passes in just 46 games. He is a slam-dunk elite QB1 that had 380.3 fantasy points in 15 games last year.It is hard to tell how good Prescott will be in 2020, the Cowboys feel like a team in transition and he is coming back from a season-ending ankle injury. When he played, he was great in fantasy. In 5 games he had 138.6 fantasy points or 27.7 fantasy points per game. He should be a great QB1 if he is healthy enough to play all 16 games in 2021.
Mark Ringo
Sleepers and Busts
Mahomes is one of the best QBs I've ever seen. The only concern is can the line protect him? It may take some time for the new guys up front to gel, but Mahomes is mobile enough to buy time even if there are growing pains. Drafting Chiefs players is a good thing these days.Dak was on his way to a career year in 2020 when he got hurt. Cee Dee Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Zeke Elliott make this one of the most exciting offenses in the NFL. Prescott doesn't run as much these days, so that's one knock on him. The other is the Cowboys don't have as many cupcakes on their schedule as I'd like. I'll move him down just a shade. That said, Dak should still put up plenty of yards and TDs for fantasy owners in 2021.
Joe Pisapia
FantasyPros
There may be some annual contenders for the overall QB point leader. However, Patrick Mahomes will annually be in the top tier, which keeps him the #1 overall QB. In 2020, Mahomes threw for 4.7K yards and 38 TD in 15 games. In a 12-team single QB league, you can make a case for as early as the turn in a snake draft rounds 2-3. The WR pool is bottomless, and you can make up ground there. You can fade Mahomes with a powerful QB1 class this year if you like, but there may not be a better one than Mahomes in terms of quality investment. In Superflex leagues, he's easily a top 5 overall selection. 
Tim Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Patrick Mahomes is the best QB in football and if I were ranking best QB's, I would have him ranked no. 1, but we aren't. Mahomes isn't immobile by any stretch but with the combination of injuries last season and a brand new offensive line, the Chiefs would be smart keeping their $503 million investment in the pocket, a place where he is so prolific anyway. It would take another record-setting season for Mahomes to finish at QB1 overall in 2021.Talk about an embarrassment of riches. CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliot, Michael Gallup, and more will be running a route every time Dak Prescott steps back to pass. Even if he starts the year a little rusty coming back from injury, the talent around him is enough to carry him to high fantasy heights regardless. Now that Dak is paid and healthy, the Cowboys should be right back near the top of the league in offensive output once again.
