Quarterback

Patrick Mahomes: Mahomes is absolutely en fuego right now. Over the past seven games, Mahomes has now been the QB6, QB2, QB6, QB3, QB2, QB2, and QB1. He is averaging 27.3 points per game over that span while he has ripped off five consecutive 300-yard passing games.

It hasn’t even mattered who the Chiefs have had available at wide receiver. 

Mahomes is the top fantasy quarterback right now. This version of the Rams is unlikely to press the Chiefs on the scoreboard here, but they also just allowed three passing touchdowns and 10.4 yards per attempt to Andy Dalton. The Rams are dead last in pressure rate (21.8%) and appear as if they are close to shutting this thing down for good in 2022.
