Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs to begin contract talks this summer

Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said on a Facebook Live event with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that “the negotiations [with Patrick Mahomes] are something we’ll be getting into this summer.”

Fantasy Impact

Mahomes is entering the fourth-year of his rookie deal in Kansas City. He’s openly said previously that he wants to be a Chief for life, and as Hunt put it, “that’s our mentality as well.” At this point, it’s a matter of when, not if, a long-term extension will get done with Mahomes. His talent and ability to play the quarterback position is unquestioned, but Hunt said it’s his humility and leadership that makes him special. “He has a tremendous amount of humility going back to what I said about leadership qualities. So he’s very humble on one hand and very competitive on the other and his teammates all respect him and want to play for him and with him.” Mahomes should be the highest-paid QB in the NFL when he gets his long-term contract extension, and he’s QB1 or QB2 in fantasy leagues this season depending on who you ask.

Patrick Mahomes will have his fifth-year option exercised by the Chiefs

The Chiefs have exercised their fifth-year option on QB Patrick Mahomes.

Fantasy Impact

An absolute no-brainer, as Mahomes is the Chiefs’ franchise player. The Chiefs have filed the paperwork to extend Mahomes. It was reported that the Chiefs will work with the Super Bowl MVP on a long-term deal. Mahomes threw for 4,031 yards and 26:5 TD:INT ratio across 14 games in 2019. He is currently second among all quarterbacks in the latest expert consensus rankings.

NFL draft still on for April 23-25, public events canceled

Per Mike Garafolo, the NFL will still hold the draft April 23-25, and will explore innovative ways to conduct the process. All public events in Las Vegas associated with the draft process will be canceled.

Fantasy Impact

The NFL is trying it’s best to create a sense of normalcy during a very trying time around the world with the COVID-19 pandemic. The draft will go on as scheduled April 23-25, however all public events surrounding the draft will be canceled to abide by the CDC guidelines of no more than 50-person gatherings for the next eight weeks. Good on the NFL for still proceeding with the draft, and fans and future draftees alike have something to look forward to at the end of April.

NFL players approve new CBA, 17-game schedule

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the NFLPA has approved a new CBA, which consists of a 17-game regular season.

Fantasy Impact

The vote was 51.5% to 48.5%, which is an incredibly slim margin. Many players initially voiced their displeasure with the proposed CBA but it has ultimately come to pass. The major headlines are that beginning in 2020 the playoffs will be expanded by two additional teams. Then, in 2021, NFL owners have the option to expand the regular season from 16 games to 17 games. More details should trickle out in the coming hours.

Patrick Mahomes not pushing for early contract extension

Patrick Mahomes is reportedly not pushing for an early contract extension just to appease the Chiefs, according to Sports Illustrated.

Fantasy Impact adds that the Chiefs do in fact have interest in getting an extension done early, which certainly makes sense given Mahomes' trajectory would indicate the he will only get more and more expensive the longer he plays football. While his future contract status is unknown at this time, it's certain that he's returning to KC in 2020 and that he'll be among the first quarterbacks selected in fantasy football drafts. He's currently the QB2 and No. 33 overall player in our early expert consensus rankings.
