Facing a stingy Buffalo defense in Week 5, Mahomes failed to finish as a top-7 QB for the first time all season. He still finished as QB13, and a bounce-back should be on the way against a WFT defense that has greatly underachieved this season. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Well, it hasn't exactly been smooth sailing for Mahomes and the Chiefs offense this season. Kansas City is now 2-3 on the year, the Chiefs are sitting in 4th place in the AFC West, and Mahomes has struggled to come through in a couple of key matchups. Last week against the stout Bills secondary, Mahomes finished outside the top-12 QBs on the week as the Chiefs lost by a significant amount and the offense looked out of sync. With all that being said, Mahomes is still the QB1 in fantasy football through five weeks. While the offense might not be steamrolling every single defense it comes up against this year, we know that Mahomes has week-winning upside in plus matchups and that's exactly what we have in front of us this year. Coming into the season, Washington appeared like it was going to be a top-5 defense on paper and that they were going to be able to keep nearly any offense in check. However, they have crumbled so far this season and they're allowing a shocking 32.4 fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, which is the highest mark in the NFL. Washington isn't going to stand a chance against the Chiefs passing game and we could see another five-touchdown performance from Mahomes in this one. Fire him up with full confidence this week against the Football Team.Fantasy managers that had Jackson as their starting QB in week five most likely walked away with a victory. Did you know that Jackson's 41.88 fantasy points in week five against the Colts ranked as a top-20 fantasy football performance all-time at the QB position? Jackson ended the Ravens' Monday Night Football comeback with 442 passing yards, four touchdowns, zero interceptions, and 14 rush attempts for 62 yards. While it wasn't looking pretty in the first half, Jackson rebounded and found chemistry with his receivers, and willed his team back to a victory. We've been waiting for the massive performance from Jackson so far this season and we got it this past week. Now, Jackson enters back into another matchup that should force the Ravens to throw the ball quite a bit to stay in it against the Chargers. This game has all the makings of a shootout and points are going to be flying up on the board. Jackson needs to be back in starting lineups this week as a top-3 option.

The "tough" D of the Football team has allowed 1,467 yards passing and 14 passing TDs through 5 games. Mahomes II should feast on this defensive unit and be an elite QB1.Jackson has struggled with consistency in his first 5 games, but he played one of the best games of his career in Week 5 and hopefully he can build on that for the rest of the season. He goes against a Chargers D that surrendered 531 yards and 42 points to the Cleveland Browns. Jackson is an elite QB1 option.
