Mike Tagliere

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.The hype was there for Murray in 2019, though he went through his ups and downs as a rookie. Now heading into his second year, a leap should be expected, especially since the Cardinals added DeAndre Hopkins to his weaponry and Larry Fitzgerald chose to return for another season. The Cardinals defense is still in rebuild mode, so we should see more shootout potential in 2020, which gives Murray top-three upside.
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 yardsFinished middle of the QB1 class as rookie - with a year of seasoning under his belt and the addition WR D. Hopkins, nowhere to go in the rankings but up
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.Murray had 3,722 yards passing and 20 passing touchdowns as a rookie to go along with 544 yards rushing and 4 touchdowns. If he can take another stop forward in his second season, he has the chance to be among the elite fantasy quarterbacks in the NFL. He has an excellent chance to do that with the acquisition of DeAndre Hopkins.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Draft Mahomes as either the first or second QB off the board. It's that simple.With the addition of DeAndre Hopkins, plus Murray's rushing ability, there's a very real possibility that Murray finishes as a top-5 fantasy QB in 2020.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Finished his rookie season as a top eight quarterback, despite modest passing numbers (3722 yards and 20 touchdowns) thanks to elite rushing ability (544 yards, 4 TDs). Another year of growth as a passer and the addition of DeAndre Hopkins makes the second-year passer an every-week starter with an outside shot at leading the position in scoring. @mrhill9169 Being drafted as the QB3 in FFPC FBG ADP, way too rich for my blood.
Elliot Berkovits
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.No QB in the league should be more excited right now than Kyler Murray. The Cardinals traded for arguably the best WR in the league in DeAndre Hopkins giving Murray a true number one option. Add Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk into the mix and the Cardinals are shaping up to be one of the scariest offenses in football. Murray couldn't be in a better spot to succeed.
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.The 2020 Murray hype is totally out of control and not warranted. Kyler was good in 2019 but ultimately finished as QB12 in points per game. While development will certainly occur, there's a good chance his rushing will decrease in his second year while he still has a lot of work to do to suggest elite upside on par with his ADP. In dynasty, the story changes. The Cardinals are building a strong roster with the Hopkins trade making a massive difference to their passing attack. Sadly, Covid will make it hard for this offence to make immediate strides with Nuk, but the future is looking very bright for Kyler. It may just be a year early to really reach for him in drafts. Be patient.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 Suffered from a ridiculously low TD rate in 2019 of 3.7%. Enter DeAndre Hopkins. He has the better passing ability and enough mobility to challenge for QB1 in 2020. Lamar and Kyler with the same 6% TD rate last year, with all other stats remaining the same: Lamar - 350 Points Kyler - 369 Lamar lost 12, Kyler gained 12
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.
