Notes for Player Combination

Mike Tagliere

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.The Texans want Watson to play for them. Watson doesn't want to play for them. Watson wants to be traded. No team wants the PR nightmare that would come with a trade for Watson. Also, the Texans don't want to trade him. The NFL might also step in and suspend Watson for these off-the-field incidents. It's not one obstacle, it's many of them. He shouldn't be on your redraft radar for the time being.

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.The rumors are that a plea bargain is very possible and then teams can talk trade with the Texans. The word on the street is that Philly and Carolina are very interested in Watson. Denver could be in the mix and don't throw out Green Bay and Vegas. If Aaron Rodgers is steadfast in his resolve they suddenly have a gaping hole at QB. I'm not sure Vegas will want to pay Derek Carr. Even if a trade happens a suspension is almost certain. Best guess- Watson is probably a nonfactor for fantasy owners in 2021.

 The longer the legal stuff drags on, the more he'll fall down my rankings. For now I've lowered him quite a bit. If he somehow doesn't miss time this season, I'll bump him back up into my top-10.
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.It doesn't look like Deshaun Watson is going to play another snap with Houston, but will he get a chance to play anywhere else?
Wolf of Roto Street

 Time to send him plumetting. There's a real chance Deshaun misses some, if not all, of 2021 -- whether holdout or suspension.
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.
