Mahomes in FFToday Board Posted December 28, 2018 Yeah, but that was Rodger's 4th year as the starter and he was 28 when he did that. Mahomes is going to throw 50 TDs (assuming he throws two on Sunday) in his first year as a starter at age 23. Imagine what he'll do with a full season under his belt. I wouldn't blame anyone for taking him 1.1 next year. True. And Rodgers did throw 40ish TDs that year, so he wasnt a bust or anything. I just feel like grabbing a QB that early puts you at such a disadvantage at other skill positions, when its finally back to you 23 picks later. I dont have any data on how many people who took Rodgers won their league that year, but Id imagine it was very few.
