For all the consternation about a Kansas City Chiefs offense sans Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes and company had no trouble pouncing on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1. It was good to see Mahomes show that remains as great as ever after tossing five touchdowns through the first three quarters. and you know he was outstanding, as he lead all QBs in fantasy points despite adding just five yards rushing.
Yes, Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Jalen Hurts and even Carson Wentz out up good fantasy numbers, but Mahomes was flawless. Can he do it again this week on a short turnaround game on Thursday night against the Chargers? It should be a great game between two of the best in the business, that’s for sure.
Injury news to monitor
Zach Wilson will remain out, giving Joe Flacco another start. Fire up your Cleveland Browns D/ST.

Week 2 streamers
Derek Carr, Raiders

Matt Ryan, Colts
Ryan didn’t have a great start to the season, but did throw for 352 yards, one touchdown and one interception in a tie against the Texans. This week he’ll get a game against the Jaguars who just gave up four TD passes to Carson Wentz.
