Blaine Gabbert40.925.6282.21.551.196.417.60.1317.65

Patrick Mahomes: Despite losing Tyreek Hill to the Dolphins, Mahomes won his second NFL MVP award in 2022. He threw for 5,250 yards and 41 touchdowns, both of which led the NFL last season. While he doesn't have as much rushing upside as Josh Allen or Jalen Hurts, he has more than 300 rushing yards in three consecutive seasons and multiple rushing scores in five consecutive seasons.


Isiah Pacheco1928646.2419.4150.30.9153.97
Jerick McKinnon76.9315.31.6148.9380.82.7119.92

Deneric Prince20.387.30.493.527.60.217.38

Isiah Pacheco: Pacheco generated some buzz last August as a seventh-round rookie, and he delivered for fantasy managers who drafted him. He finished his inaugural season with 170 carries for 830 yards (4.9 YPC) and five touchdowns and added 13 catches for 130 yards (10.0 Y/R). Pacheco enters 2023 atop the depth chart and he'll have a chance to improve upon his rookie numbers.

Jerick McKinnon: McKinnon had nearly as many targets (71) as carries (72) last season, and he was extremely effective as a receiver. He ended the year with 56 catches for 512 yards (9.1 Y/R) and nine of his 10 touchdowns were receiving scores.

Justin Watson6.592.70.800017.32
Justyn Ross3.750.10.50009.86

Kadarius Toney: With JuJu Smith-Schuster no longer on the roster, Toney will compete with Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and rookie Rashee Rice for non-Travis Kelce targets. Offensive coordinator Matt Nagy recently said now that Toney has learned the ins and outs of the Chiefs offense after a midseason trade in 2022, "it's exciting now for us to be able to take that to Year 2 and build that relationship with Pat (Mahomes). He's super talented with the football in his hands, and he's been that way his entire life in his football career." Toney will be a popular name on breakout lists in 2023.


Travis Kelce1011187.49.72.611.70.26230.17
Noah Gray20.92331.
Jody Fortson6.875.20.700015.12
Blake Bell2.425.10.20004.91

Travis Kelce: While age (turns 34 in October) is still a potential concern, he's shown no signs of slowing down after posting his seventh consecutive 1,000-yard season. Without Tyreek Hill, he posted either his best or second-best numbers across the board — 152 targets, 110 receptions, 1,338 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Absolutely dominant compared to other tight ends, Kelce (15.4) averaged more than double the half-PPR fantasy points per game than the last TE1 (Dalton Schultz, TE12, 7.6 PPG). In fact, if Kelce were a wide receiver, he'd rank ahead of all but five wide receivers in fantasy PPG last season.
