Brady vs Manning. Brady vs Rodgers. Brady vs Manning (again). Brady vs… Mahomes? Let’s just say this. Patrick Mahomes is 18 years younger than Tom Brady. That’s a player about to be drafted into the NBA difference in age. This will be one of the most interesting championship rounds in recent history. It’s the young buck Patrick Mahomes trying to come in and take the reigns of the AFC from the man who’s reigned supreme of the AFC since 2001. It’s a shifting of times as quarterbacks like Mahomes, Baker Mayfield, DeShaun Watson, and others start to emerge as the future leaders of the new NFL generation as quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Brady, Manning, Philip Rivers, and Ben Roethlisberger start to reach the twilight of their careers. Brady vs Mahomes is just the story behind this game, but in all reality, these two teams are playing for one thing and one thing only. A chance to play in the Super Bowl.
The Fantasy Footballers say championships are not won at the draft, but you lay the foundation for the upcoming season. Hard work, making the right moves, and picking up the right players has hopefully gotten you to the fantasy playoffs. And now that they are here, let’s take a look back at some of the late-round/waiver-wire pickups that got you here.
Let’s talk about the wonderful tale that is happening in Kansas City in the form of the Chiefs. You can’t say Kansas City without saying Patrick Mahomes, kind of like back in 2015 when you couldn’t say Kansas City without saying Salvador Perez.
The Kansas City Chiefs at 9-1 and first place in the AFC against a 9-1 Los Angeles Rams team that was second in the NFC was a sure shot to be a great game. This game pitted two great offenses, two great offensive-minded head coaches and two great quarterbacks against one another with a location change to Los Angeles due to bad field conditions in Mexico. The game ended up being one of the highest scoring games in the history of the NFL and the greatest Monday Night Football game exceeding all expectations.
Hello, Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff owners. Welcome to Week 12 edition of streaming options. After Monday’s performance, I’m sure you’re sick to your stomach thinking that you have to start somebody else at quarterback. There is hope for you, I would feel less anxious than a Travis Kelce owner who needs a win this week. If you are that Travis Kelce fan, we’re going to try to get you a touchdown with your TE streamer in Week 12. The tight end wire doesn’t really offer much more than a touchdown prayer at this point.
The 2018 MVP Race is More Competitive Than Many Expect
The NFL is a crazy and wild place. A team could win the super bowl one year then be sub .500 the next year. While football may be a team sport certain individuals help their teams way more than any other player. That one player is usually referred to as the most valuable player or MVP. But some players impact the game so greatly that it goes beyond just their teams MVP but instead the leagues most valuable player.
When looking at the MVP race this NFL season, you tend to hear the same names mentioned as the top candidates. Names such as Todd Gurley, Drew Brees, Patrick Mahomes, and Philip Rivers. These are some of the names that come to mind. However, there is a player that has been playing outstanding football, but is not receiving nearly the amount of recognition the players I listed are. The player I am speaking so highly of is Ben Roethlisberger.
