Mahomes completed 31 of 47 passes for 410 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Chiefs' 34-28 overtime win over the Chargers on Thursday night. He also rushed three times for 32 yards and lost a fumble.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes completed all three of his scoring throws in the fourth quarter and overtime, the last a 34-yard game-winner to Travis Kelce to cap off an OT-opening five-play drive. The 2018 NFL MVP's passing yardage total was also a season high, and perhaps most encouraging for fantasy managers, his prolific connections with Kelce and Tyreek Hill were alive and well to the tune of 22 completions for 339 yards and three total touchdowns. The performance was an especially timely one for Mahomes considering the context of the fantasy playoffs, especially when factoring in he'd disappointed in multiple games since Week 6. The stellar all-around night gives Mahomes plenty of momentum heading into a Week 16 home matchup against the Steelers a week from Sunday.

Mahomes completed 20 of 24 passes for 258 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 48-9 win over the Raiders. He added four rushes for 20 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes picked apart the Raiders defense in the first half, putting up 176 yards and two touchdowns. However, the Chiefs were up 35-3 at halftime, so Mahomes took to the air only nine times in the final two quarters. As a result, his stat line doesn't look as robust as it otherwise could have. Even so it, was a reassuring performance, as Mahomes averaged over 10 yards per attempt for the first time since Week 2. Next up, he and the Chiefs will draw a matchup Thursday against the Chargers.

Mahomes completed 15 of 29 pass attempts for 184 yards and an interception while adding 12 yards and a touchdown on four rush attempts in Sunday's 22-9 win over Denver.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes was stymied by the Broncos' aggresive approach on defense, as the constant pressure kept the quarterback from developing rhythm in the pocket. In the superstar's defense, his lone interception came as a result of a dropped pass by Tyreek Hill that bounced into Patrick Surtain's hands. Mahomes finished without a passing touchdown for the second consecutive game and third time overall this season; he did not have any zero-passing-touchdown games in 2020. Despite his recent struggles, the Chiefs continue to win and sit at 8-4 heading into an important matchup against the Raiders next Sunday.

Mahomes completed 23 of 37 passes for 260 yards with one interception in Sunday's 19-9 win over the Cowboys. He also gained 11 rushing yards on seven carries.
EDGE Analysis
Kansas City's brief offensive resurgence lasted all of one week, as the Cowboys focused on taking away the deep ball while Micah Parsons and the pass rush chased after Mahomes. Fortunately, the K.C. defense put together an even better game plan to handle Dak Prescott and a short-handed Dallas attack. Mahomes will head into a Week 12 bye on a four-game winning streak, but with plenty of questions to answer after he's failed to throw more than one TD in four of his last five contests.

Mahomes completed 35 of 50 pass attempts for 406 yards and five touchdowns in Sunday's 41-14 win over the Raiders.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes was finally clicking on all cylinders for what seems like the first time this season. It also felt like the first time all three of Kansas City's stars flourished together in the same contest. The noticeable difference in Mahomes' game was his decision making, as he consistently took what the defense gave him instead of going for the flashy big throws excessively. It has been a rough first half of the season for the 25-year-old, but this is the kind of confidence-boosting performance that his fantasy managers have been patiently waiting for. Mahomes and the Chiefs will take on the Cowboys next Sunday in what could be a high-scoring affair between offenses that rediscovered their grooves this week.

Mahomes completed 20 of 37 pass attempts for 166 yards and one touchdown against Green Bay on Sunday.
EDGE Analysis
For the third week in a row, Mahomes had a favorable matchup but averaged under six yards per pass attempt and failed to score multiple touchdowns. Even before this brutal three-game stretch, Mahomes had more turnovers (five) than touchdowns (four) in Weeks 5 and 6, so he's been struggling for five weeks now. Mahomes is clearly too good of a quarterback -- and players like Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are too good as pass catchers -- for these struggles to last forever, but it's alarming that it has taken this long to sort out their struggles. An adjustment of some kind in the Kansas City offense might be necessary, and such maneuvering could come before the Chiefs face the Raiders on Sunday Night Football in Week 10.

Mahomes completed 29 of 48 passes for 275 yards, a touchdown and an interception in Monday night's 20-17 win over the Giants. He also rushed three times for 10 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes connected on his first eight passes before having an attempt bounce off the helmet of a teammate and then intercepted in the end zone to halt Kansas City's opening drive. That play gave Mahomes a seventh straight outing with at least one pick and he flirted a couple others Monday night as well. Nonetheless, the signal-caller still did enough to lead the Chiefs to victory, mostly by utilizing Tyreek Hill on crossing routes and finding targets close to the line of scrimmage. Although it again wasn't a pretty performance by Mahomes' standards, he'll now approach a Week 9 showdown against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coming off a needed victory.

Mahomes is not listed on Kansas City's Week 8 injury report.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes was shook up during his team's Week 7 loss to the Titans, but the QB -- who was replaced by Chad Henne in the fourth quarter of the contest -- subsequently cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and approaches Monday night's game against the Giants free of any injury concerns, per coach Andy Reid, via Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post. Seven weeks into the 2021 season, Mahomes ranks fourth in the NFL with 2,093 passing yards and has thrown 18 TDs versus nine picks in that span while rushing 32 times for 219 yards and a score.

Mahomes (undisclosed) avoided a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Titans and is expected to start against the Giants in Week 8, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes exited the game after being shaken up on a hit that caught him up high, and there was no reason to rush his return with the Chiefs getting blown out. He subsequently cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, so Chiefs fans and his fantasy managers alike can breathe a sigh of relief. His practice reps will likely be capped this week, but Mahomes should be available against the Giants on Monday Night Football with an extra day to heal up.

Mahomes, who was replaced by Chad Henne in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against the Titans after absorbing a hit, was subsequently able to clear the NFL's concussion protocol, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
With Kansas City down 27-3, coach Andy Reid played it safe with his star QB, so at this stage it looks like Mahomes should be fine for next Monday's game against the Giants. Mahomes indicated after Sunday's contest that he feels fine, but it will still be worth checking back on his status once the team resumes practicing in advance of Week 8.
