1. Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs
First of all, don’t expect Mahomes to match the 50 touchdown passes and over 5,000 passing yards he had last season. The league has spent all summer looking for ways to slow him down. That being said, there was such a big gap between him and every other quarterback last season that he will surely be the first quarterback selected in nearly every fantasy draft.
However, that doesn’t mean he’s worth taking before you would usually select a quarterback. The gap between him and the rest of the league won’t be quite as big. Obviously, you should draft Mahomes if you can, but keep in mind that there are plenty of quarterbacks with nearly as much potential that can be drafted a round or two after he comes off the board.
Top Target: Tyreek Hill
Secondary Target: Sammy Watkins
