Patrick Mahomes and The Kansas City Chiefs have been a great example of fantasy football managers who have achieved glory.
This star quarterback has amassed unbelievable numbers in his NFL career. He’s primarily funneled fantasy gamers the targets to Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, which is a great thing for fantasy gamers.
Mahomes is still in tight shape, but Kansas City sent Hill to Miami Dolphins. Drafters have been aggressively pursuing Chiefs receivers in the hopes that one will be Mahomes’ preferred target.
Mahomes, however, warned against this. According to Herbie Teope, The Kansas City Star he said he would rely on “a new guy every week.”
Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes sends out an apology in advance to Fantasy Football folks. He says "it will be a different guy every week" at the WR position having a big game.
Translation: It's a WR by committee in KC.

Drafters who rely on JuJu Smith Schuster’s bounce-back season for a boost are not in the best position. This offseason, Smith Schuster signed a one year “prove it” deal. Skyy Moore, Mecole Hartman, and Marquez Valdes Scantling are also in the same boat.
Hill is leaving 159 targets so Mahomes doesn’t have to distribute them all to one person to encourage fantasy choices. One or two of these people are likely to be a valuable contributor.
If Mahomes’ prediction is correct, fantasy managers will not be able to depend on any of them to deliver on a weekly basis.
