Huddle Up: Mahomes showed off his big arm and his athleticism, dangling his upside in front of fantasy owners. Surrounded by weapons, Mahomes has tons of upside as a QB2.

Huddle Up: Mahomes will be given meaningful playing time for the first time since Week 17 of last season. He'll need it, too, to shake off rust and develop more fluidity with his supporting cast. His dual-threat ability gives him high-end QB2 appeal.

Huddle Up: All indications are that Mahomes is also making plenty of big plays, too. He is trying to break the stigma that Texas Tech quarterbacks are system guys, and Red Raiders cannot play at the next level. It's something Zebbie Lethridge, Kliff Kingsbury, B.J. Symons, Graham Harrell, Sonny Cumbie, Seth Doege and, to this point, Davis Webb haven't been able to shake. The last effective NFL QB from Texas Tech dates back to Billy Joe Tolliver in the late 80's. Mahomes looks to have plenty of upside, but he remains a high-risk, high-reward QB2 in redraft leagues for now.

Huddle Up: Mahomes is a high-risk, high-reward QB2 in redraft leagues, but he has the physical tools, the coaching staff and weapons around him to be an impact fantasy option sooner rather than later.

Huddle Up: Mahomes is unproven as he enters his first season as the starter, but he has a big arm and plenty of weapons around him. He will be a high-risk, high-reward QB2.

Huddle Up: The Chiefs put their faith in Mahomes when they dealt Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins this week. Mahomes has a huge arm, and he'll be a QB2 in 2018 with tons of upside, especially in keeper formats.

Huddle Up: One of the biggest transitions in all of football next season will see how the Chiefs fare moving on from Alex Smith to Mahomes, their 2017 first-round pick whom they drafted out of Texas Tech. The 22-year-old received one start in his rookie campaign -- a meaningless Week 17 tilt in Denver -- and didn't disappoint, racking up 284 yards on 62.9 percent passing. While his ceiling is high, he'll begin the season as more of an option for two-quarterback formats.

Huddle Up: Mahomes has a big arm, and the combination of him and Tyreek Hill is tantalizing. He'll be a QB2 in fantasy with some upside.

Huddle Up: It's a smart move by the Chiefs, who are locked into the fourth seed in the AFC and have nothing to gain by rolling out Alex Smith. The rookie is blessed with the rocket arm and has drawn both good and bad comparisons to Brett Favre, but he's in for a tough first start against a revitalized Denver defense. He's a QB2 at best in Week 17.

Huddle Up: Mahomes is running the scout team in practice and hasn't run the team's plays at full speed since the fourth week of the preseason, so starting QB Alex Smith doesn't appear to be in imminent danger of losing his job. Mahomes only has fantasy value in dynasty and keeper leagues at this point.

Huddle Up: Mahomes will not an option in standard leagues this season but will be valuable in keeper leagues since he should be the quarterback of the future for the Chiefs.
