What to do with Patrick Mahomes in Week 7 fantasy football

We go over Patrick Mahomes’ fantasy football outlook ahead of the Chiefs Week 7 matchup against the Broncos.

It’s too early to get far down the rabbit hole of the MVP discussion, but Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is definitely on the short list. His 15 touchdowns rank third in the NFL. His 1,699 yards are fifth. Pick a category, and he’s definitely near the top, but what’s most impressive is his 15-1 touchdown/interception ratio. Needless to say, he’s a lock for any fantasy lineup, in any week of the season.

Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

Mahomes completed 80 percent of his passes last week against the Bills, throwing a pair of touchdowns. This week he’s facing the Denver Broncos, a defense that’s given up an average of over 22 points per game to opposing quarterbacks. That number would probably be higher, but Denver’s last two games were against the Jets and a struggling Patriots unit.

The Chiefs should cruise in this one, and Mahomes should have yet another multiple touchdown effort.
