He hasn't been flashy outside of the game against the Ravens where he went nuclear, but he's now thrown at least two touchdowns in every game, and has crossed the 300-yard barrier in three of his last five games. He played a very good game against the Bills last week with all things considered, as the weather made the field pretty sloppy. The matchup this week isn't the best against the Broncos, who've held every opponent to 28 points or less, something that's rare in today's NFL. It's crazy to think how good this Broncos defense could've been without injuries, because even with the injuries to Von Miller, Jurrell Casey, and A.J. Bouye, they've still allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per offensive play. Here's something that benefits Mahomes, though. They are one of just eight teams who've allowed more fantasy points per game to quarterbacks than running backs. Still, despite playing against Ryan Tannehill, Ben Roethlisberger, and Tom Brady, they haven't allowed more than 7.8 yards per attempt to any quarterback. With that being said, every quarterback they've played has scored at least 15.88 fantasy points and finished as a top-18 quarterback. This is due to how good the Broncos run defense is. Mahomes played this Vic Fangio defense in Week 15 last year, piling up 340 yards and two touchdowns, though you should also know that game was in the snow at Kansas City, which presents a lot of unknown factors. You're starting Mahomes in season-long leagues every week, and though you should have some shares in tournaments, there are likely better cash-game options. This is the lowest total on a Chiefs game I recall seeing in quite some time.

Patrick Mahomes throws for 225 yards with 2 TDs on MNF

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes completed 21-of-26 passes for 225 yards and two touchdowns and added 10 rushes for 36 yards in a 26-17 win over the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact

Mahomes had an efficient game on Monday night, converting several difficult third-down conversions while extending plays using his legs. He didn't have his typical day in the air, as the Chiefs offense were heavily reliant on the run to keep the Bills offense off the field. Mahomes continues to have an MVP-like season through six games, throwing for 1,699 yards while completing 66% of his passes along with 15 touchdowns, one interception, and another 165 yards on the ground with an additional two rushing TDs.
