Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Mahomes takes on the Broncos this week. While Denver has a lot of defensive talent, they're giving up the ninth-most points to the position. With a point total of 44 and Kansas City favored to win by 7.5 points, the Chiefs should score around 25.5 points. That doesn't give Mahomes as much room to score as he gets in other matchups, but he's still a fine QB1 for Week 7. 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
It goes without saying just how elite Mahomes is. This guy is a top-3 option each and every week, but in Week 7, he gets the benefit of facing a Broncos defense currently ranked in the top-10 for most fantasy points allowed to opposing QBs. If not for Kyler Murray's stellar matchup, Mahomes would be this week's overall QB1. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Mahomes may not have an enormous ceiling in this matchup with the Chiefs favored heavily, but he's still a must-start every single week. Fire up Mahomes as a safe, top-tier option. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Broncos are just 21st against fantasy quarterbacks and Mahomes II has 1,307 yards passing and 8 passing touchdowns in five career games against the Broncos. He is an elite QB1 on the road this week.
