These topics always seemed to interest me the most. You guys all play some fantasy but also likely have a local team you follow. Tell me what I need to know about the team you like most heading into to the '18-'19 season. For some chiefs you will find:
I'm going to be obnoxious about Pat Mahomes. I have never been witness to my NFL team drafting a 1st round QB except for Todd Blackledge and I think I was three. And that didn't really work out. If this one does, watch out cause you're looking at me being more obnoxious than the most obnoxious Tom Brady fan on this site.
I think it will. I have to cause I am a fan. As for this year I would be cautiously optimistic as a fantasy owner. The O-Line is solid, not all-world but good and should be good enough in run and pass protection and with Mahomes' legs to extend a play he should be ok. It won't be like David Carr experienced in Houston but it wont be what Oakland or Dallas trots out there each week either.
Still, Mahomes has the weapons around him to come into an ideal situation. You'll see him make rookie mistakes and throw some picks, but like the success we have seen from other rookies in the league I think you'll find able to come in and compete at a high level very early in his career.
I have no qualms taking Kareem Hunt as the first RB off the board this year. He's on my favorite team, he can catch the ball, he has other weapons around him to spread the field and the Chiefs will rely heavily on the run with a young QB they are grooming. They aren't going to lay it all on Mahomes' shoulders.
These guys are solid. Hill and Watkins give Mahomes the speeds he needs to catch the long focking ball he can just toss up there. A few times a game they will go deep and I'm sure they are going to connect at times, it happens. I don't really care all that much about who plays the slot, but if you score for distance TDs I would look at Hill as one of your top options and Watkins should perform above his value as well.
Yes, Travis Kelce he is awesome.
I might do defense later when I feel like it :shrug:
