We don't really need to discuss this, do we? Jackson is as good as it gets in fantasy football for 2019, and you wouldn't dare sit him in the first week of the fantasy playoffs. At least we'd hope not.Mahomes hasn't been quite as explosive as he was in 2018, but he is still a premier quarterback. His Week 14 matchup with the Patriots could be a preview of the AFC Championship game, and there's a decent chance it ends up as a shootout. We still view Mahomes as a top-tier QB1 despite the tough matchup.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Even against the two best defenses in football (Patriots and 49ers), Jackson has been able to post 22-plus fantasy points. He's finished as a top-six quarterback in 9-of-12 games and has finished worse than QB11 just once all year. The Bills are coming off a game in which they allowed Dak Prescott to throw for 355 yards and two touchdowns, though that was just the second time this year they've allowed more than one passing touchdown. It also took him 49 pass attempts to get there, which is fitting because the Bills have allowed just a 2.14 percent touchdown-rate this year, which ranks second to only the Patriots. Dating back to the start of last year, they've allowed just five quarterbacks to finish as top-12 options, though none have finished with more than 22.7 points or as a top-three option. They've also allowed a league-low 2.85 yards per carry to quarterbacks over the last two years. To be fair they haven't played Jackson. Will Jackson change the fact that no quarterback has finished better than QB4 against them since 2017? You're playing him no matter the opponent right now, so you're going to find out. My guess would be that he does.Has the magic worn off? Mahomes has now finished with 273 yards or less in four of his last five games (though one was abbreviated due to injury), something that didn't happen in the first five games of the season. He's also thrown just 0-1 touchdowns in five of his last seven games. Now they head into a matchup with the Patriots in what could be a preview of the AFC Championship match. The Patriots are coming off a game in which they allowed Deshaun Watson and the Texans combine for 234 yards and four touchdowns through the air in Week 13. That was an interesting game because there were many factors involved, including half of the Patriots being sick and needing to fly on a different plane after not practicing all week. However, for those who've said to wait until the Patriots got some real competition, we've watched Lamar Jackson and Watson both finish as top-three quarterbacks against them. They still rank No. 1 in completion percentage (55.1) and touchdown percentage (1.78), while ranking No. 2 in yards per attempt (5.65). Mahomes has played the Patriots twice over the last 13 months. In those games, he's thrown for 352 yards and four touchdowns, and then 295 yards and three touchdowns. You cannot let the matchup scare you off Mahomes, as the Patriots man coverage scheme just doesn't match-up well with the Chiefs speed on offense. Start him as a QB1.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bills are 2nd against fantasy quarterbacks, but Jackson has been on fire this year and he should still have a monster week at home.The Patriots are 1st against fantasy quarterbacks, but I cannot see ranking Mahomes any lower than a QB1 on one of the most talented offenses in the NFL.
