There’s not much to say about Mahomes here. He’s got the arm, the weapons and one of the best offensive-minded coaches in league history. He might take a step back from last year, but he should still be the first QB taken in your draft.
The same thing goes for Travis Kelce. Kelce is coming off his best season in his career, which was his third year in a row leading the league in fantasy points by a tight end. He should be the first TE taken and will not disappoint whoever drafts him.
With Kareem Hunt and Spencer Ware gone, the RB1 spot is Williams’. After not playing much in the first half of the season, Williams came onto the scene in the last four games of the season. He added to this with a huge playoff performance against both the Colts and Patriots. Although this is a pass-first offense, Williams is a dangerous threat out of the backfield and will probably catch over 70 passes. I have him slotted as a top-10 running back.
After some offseason drama, it was decided that Hill would face no suspension for the upcoming season, which makes him a great pick once again for your WR1. Hill ranked first in the league last season, scoring 12 touchdowns and posting a 10.9 yard per target (fifth in the NFL). We can expect a bit of a regression from last year, but Hill is still a top-ten receiver who also adds value as a returner.
Just about any offensive player on this team is a solid pick, and Watkins is no exception. Watkins only played ten games last season, and in those ten games, he only trailed Tyreek Hill by four targets. Watkins has consistently disappointed fantasy owners in his career; however, this year poses a great opportunity for him. He is in a high-scoring offense where the main focus will be on Hill and Kelce. This sets up Watkins to have a huge year if he can stay healthy, which puts him as a WR2 with upside potential.
