Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is scheduled to play as much as a quarter in the first preseason game, according to head coach Andy Reid.
Fantasy Spin: Mahomes has several new receivers this season and needs to build chemistry with them during games. He is still one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and will be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) tweaked his ankle during the last play of the 11-on-11 portion of training camp practice on Monday. He hobbled to the sideline and was helped to the white medical tent by a trainer. Mahomes emerged from the tent shortly after with a re-taped ankle and went back to the sidelines with his helmet. "Yeah, he got stepped on," head coach Andy Reid said. "He's OK. He's alright. An offensive lineman got pushed back into him." Mahomes took part in individual QB drills before practice ended, and it's likely that he'll return to practice on Tuesday with his left ankle taped up. The 26-year-old star signal-caller should be fine moving forward. Although he lost All-Pro receiver Tyreek Hill in the offseason, Mahomes remains an elite QB1 target in fantasy.
Updating a previous report, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (foot) sustained a foot injury after being stepped on at practice on Monday Aug. 1, leading to his early exit. Head coach Andy Reid said he isn't concerned.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) suffered an apparent ankle injury during practice on Monday, Aug. 1. The severity of the injury is not yet known but he was able to remain on the practice field, albeit as an observer.
Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Orlando Brown Jr. will report to training camp on Monday and will play the 2022 season on the franchise tag. Sources close to Brown say he's in the best shape of his life and knows how important the first five days of padded practice are for him, the team and head coach Andy Reid. The 26-year-old's holdout in training camp will end, which is great news for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the entire Chiefs offense as they prepare for the 2022 season. The former third-rounder has made the Pro Bowl each of the last three seasons and was a stabilizing force on Mahomes' blind side in his first year in KC in 2021.
Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Orlando Brown will not report to training camp on Monday, which was the expected outcome after he couldn't come to a contract extension with the team this summer. Brown isn't expected to be at training camp with the Chiefs in St. Joseph, MO, anytime soon. He hasn't signed his franchise tag yet, so he won't be subject to fines for missing training camp practices. The Chiefs offered the 26-year-old a deal that would've been more than San Francisco 49ers' star left tackle Trent Williams' six-year, $138 million deal, but Brown turned it down due to security and structuring issues. After being acquired from the Baltimore Ravens, Brown stepped in immediately last year and was a rock on quarterback Patrick Mahomes' blind side.
Dynasty | According to Chiefs receiver Mecole Hardman himself, he will excel without the presence of Tyreek Hill. Dynasty Analysis: It would be a bigger story if the player thought he was going to disappoint but Hardman does have upside sans Hill. The fourth-year player secured a career-high in receptions (59) and yards (693) but a career-low in touchdowns (2) in 2021. Now with Hill in Miami, Hardman is best suited to take on the deep routes though early word is that it has been Marquez Valdes-Scantling who has shown the most chemistry with Patrick Mahomes. With training camp opening, it's now or never for the 24-year-old and he'll likely never have a better opportunity to take the top off not only defenses but his production as well. He's listed as DLF's WR87, showing there's little belief Hardman will be able to back up his words.
The Kansas City Chiefs and left tackle Orlando Brown made a final run at a long-term contract extension before Friday's deadline, but they couldn't reach an agreement. The Chiefs offered Brown more based on average per year than San Francisco 49ers All-Pro left tackle Trent Williams, but structure and security were the issues. Brown will now play the 2022 season on the franchise tag, and a training camp holdout this summer is possible. The 26-year-old has yet to sign the franchise tender and skipped organized team activities in the spring. Contract issues aside, the three-time Pro Bowler should continue to provide great protection for quarterback Patrick Mahomes when he's on the field.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has recently been drilling with wide receivers Justin Watson and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. With just a few weeks before training camp commences, the former MVP is looking to establish a rapport with his new wideouts after the team traded Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins back in March. Mahomes also worked with rookie Skyy Moore in June. Nonetheless, while nobody on the roster outside Travis Kelce is likely to replicate the production of a guy like Hill, Mahomes has plenty of weapons in his arsenal to remain one of the most effective fantasy options in the league.
The Kansas City Chiefs and left tackle Orlando Brown are not close to a long-term deal with under three days left to get one done before the deadline to extend franchise-tagged players. If a deal isn't reached before Friday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo doesn't expect Brown to attend the start of training camp, and Week 1 isn't a certainty either. Brown wants to be paid at the top of the left-tackle market, but if he doesn't reach an extension with the team, he'll make $16.7 million in 2022 on the franchise tag. The 26-year-old was traded from the Ravens to the Chiefs because he wanted to make the move to left tackle, where he thrived in his first season in KC last year. The three-time Pro Bowler will continue to be a big asset on quarterback Patrick Mahomes' blind side in 2022, with or without an extension.
Miami Dolphins WR Tyreek Hill believes QB Tua Tagovailoa is more accurate than Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes. 'Obviously, I'm gonna go with one five as the strongest arm, but as far as accuracy-wise, I'm going with Tua all day,' Hill said on his podcast 'It Needed To Be Said' on Friday, June 10.
Fantasy Spin: While Tagovailoa's 67.8% completion percentage is slightly higher than Mahomes' 66.3% mark in 2021, some of the deeper metrics may beg to differ. According to Pro Football Focus' adjusted completion percentage, which disregards drops and throwaways, Mahomes had the second-highest mark in the NFL in 2021 at 79.2%. Tagovailoa came in at 75.3%. The addition of Hill to the Dolphins offense should help his new QB, but the Cheetah himself may have a bit more volatility coming his way for fantasy purposes considering the downgrade at QB and the fact that he's likely to share targets with Jaylen Waddle. Hill is still a high-upside WR1 but some extra volatility should be expected in 2022.
Dynasty | Chiefs offseason receiver acquisition Marquez Valdes-Scantling has shown a strong connection with Patrick Mahomes in OTAs Dynasty Analysis: The speedy Valdes-Scantling (MVS) was timed (22.09 mph) faster than Hill according to Next Gen Stats on a play over the past two seasons, so it's obvious why the Chiefs shelled out $30M over three years. Already on a depth chart with Juju Smith-Schuster, Mecole Hardman, rookies Skyy Moore and Justyn Ross, not to mention Travis Kelce, it's hard to project which wideout will rise to the top when the dust settles but a strong connection early in camp certainly helps make a case for MVS, DLF's WR70. Still only 27, in an offense known for big plays and in a role vacated by Tyreek Hill, there may be extreme value in his ranking should the speedster be able to transcend his, typically, low-target production as seen previously while in Green Bay.
Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. reported he's "very confident" a long-term deal will happen. Yet, the 25-year-old also seemingly hinted that he is prepared to sit out in 2022 if an agreement couldn't be reached. Brown had the franchise tag placed on him back in March, which would pay him roughly $16.5 million this season. When asked, head coach Andy Reid didn't seem too concerned about a contract getting done, indicating he doesn't see "anything that's going to get in the way." Nonetheless, there could be more to this situation in the weeks ahead. However, without the multi-time Pro Bowler on the field, things may become even more difficult for Patrick Mahomes, who is already entering the year without Tyreek Hill, who was traded to the Dolphins during the offseason.
Kansas City Chiefs left tackle Orlando Brown, who had the franchise tag placed on him this offseason, is confident that he'll work out a long-term contract extension with the team by the deadline on July 15. Brown was an anchor on quarterback Patrick Mahomes' blind side in 2021 after he was acquired from the Baltimore Ravens. The Chiefs offensive line ranked fifth in Pro Football Focus' offensive line rankings last year. If he plays under the franchise tag this year, he'll make $16.7 million in 2022. The 26-year-old played all of last year at left tackle with the Chiefs after playing 75% of his snaps in three seasons in Baltimore at right tackle.
Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes plans on spreading the ball around more in 2022. 'That's what you're going to see in this offense this year, it's going to be everybody,' Mahomes said. 'It's not going to be one guy. Obviously Travis [Kelce] is still going to get a lot of completions, a lot of yards, but the whole receiving room is going to have big days and that can be something we use to our advantage.'
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was feeding the ball to many different receivers during offseason practices this week, said the team's offense will feature everybody this year. "That's what you're going to see with this offense this year," Mahomes said. "It's going to be everybody. It's not all going to be one guy. Obviously Travis Kelce is still going to get a lot of completions, a lot of yards but the whole receiving room is going to have big days and that can be something we use to our advantage." In his four years as a starter, Mahomes went to either Kelce or Tyreek Hill for 45% of his completions and 50% of his yards and touchdowns. With Hill now in Miami, receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and rookies Skyy Moore and Justyn Ross will need to step up.
The Kansas City Chiefs and left tackle Orlando Brown are expected to begin negotiations on a long-term contract extension in the near future. The Chiefs placed the franchise tag on Brown this offseason, which will pay him $16.6 million in 2022, but the two sides have until July to work out an extension. Kansas City acquired Brown from the Baltimore Ravens in a trade before last year's draft, and he was a stabilizing presence on quarterback Patrick Mahomes' blind side in his first year with the team, allowing just four sacks on 715 offensive snaps. Brown is going to be seeking more than $20 million per year on an extension with the Chiefs.
According to Fox NFL analyst Jay Glazer, the Chiefs are rumored to trade up during the 2022 NFL Draft. When asked by a fan on Twitter, Glazer responded by saying that the team is prepared to offer its 2023 first-round pick in an attempt to make a run at a wide receiver on Thursday night. With Kansas City dealing Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins, the Chiefs unquestionably need to make a move to fill the void. However, if the club fails to pick up a wideout, Patrick Mahomes may suffer from a production standpoint, despite being one of the most mobile quarterbacks in the league.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy to a one-year deal on Thursday, according to a source. Bieniemy considered a move to college football and also sitting out a season after once again being bypassed in this head-coaching cycle. The well-respected offensive mind has been with the Chiefs since 2013 and has been the team's offensive coordinator for the last four seasons. Kansas City's offense has ranked no worse than sixth in the NFL each season under Bieniemy and quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The 52-year-old Bieniemy interviewed for a head-coaching job with the Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints before returning to the Chiefs. His presence for another year is great news for Mahomes and the rest of the offense.
The Kansas City Chiefs hired former Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy as a senior assistant and quarterbacks coach on Friday. The move was expected once the Chiefs brought back offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on a one-year deal on Thursday. Nagy was in the same role for the Chiefs from 2013-15 and was also their offensive coordinator from 2016-17. Nagy will now work with quarterback Patrick Mahomes after he was instrumental in former quarterback Alex Smith's best season in 2017. Running back Kareem Hunt led the league in rushing with 1,327 yards in his rookie season in 2017 under Nagy. With Bieniemy returning and Nagy back in town, it's nothing but good news for Mahomes and the Chiefs offense in 2022.
