2018 Week 2 Dynasty-Fantasy Analysis: Chiefs v. Steelers
It was 21-0 Chiefs in the blink of an eye. It was soon 21-21 by halftime in another blink of an eye. Watching this game…it was not a back and forth of two heavyweight fighters exchanging blows. It was Kansas City’s offense unstoppable/bored with the ease of which they could move the ball, and the Steelers doing everything in their power to try to stay in it…all the while the Chiefs looking at them like a cat watching a mouse – intrigued, engaged, knowing it will pounce any moment and crush the thing.
The Chiefs have a bad defense, so no lead is safe…which means Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill will put up fantasy numbers beyond your wildest dreams – because they have to and because they can’t be stopped by other defenses. There is no defense for Mahomes. You just hope Mahomes makes a mistake or a ball is tipped or a fumble, etc. The Chiefs will put up 30+ every week by the sheer force of what they bring led by Mahomes (more detail on that in a moment) but the Chiefs defense will allow 30+ points every week just the same. You can’t beat the Chiefs traditionally any more, you have to play their game and hope you have enough ammo to outgun them in the end. The Steelers, Packers, Rams, and Patriots are about the only teams that will hang with the Chiefs in a shootout.
When it was 21-0, the Chiefs got a strip sack, recover and score to make it 28-0, but the play got called back for some hands to the face call or some other soul crushing defensive penalty that litters all these NFL games. The drive lived on and led to a Steelers TD and the comeback was on. This was very close to an explosive blowout. If the Chiefs can find half-a-defense – they might win the Super Bowl, they are that unstoppable on offense.
Fantasy Player Notes… -- The two QBs in this game combined for 778 yards passing, 9 passing TDs, 10 TDs total. They made it look easy, especially Patrick Mahomes (23-28 for 326 yards, 6 TDs/0 INT). But why?
