Mahomes- Round 12
Kittle- Round 13
This is a 12 team keeper league. I’ve never been so torn in my life. Typically, I am a guy that waits on both TE and QB in every draft. But, I am more keen on paying for a QB than a TE.
Both these guys had historic seasons last year. It wouldn’t be wise to expect repeat performances, but it’s safe to say both will obviously be great. But is there a safer pick? I feel like with Mahomes, barring injury, he might be at worst a top 4 QB. Guaranteed elite, with all the weapons. I like having an Elite QB that you can count on for a BUNCH of TDs, whether he’s number 1 or not.
With Kittle, for one, I’m kind of wary of how Jimmy G has looked. Kittle is a freak and had bad QBs last year, so it probably doesn’t matter, but still. You gotta figure his YAC will regress, but his TDs could(should) go up. But maybe teams will specifically gameplan to stop him this year, I feel like they didn’t last season. I just can’t shake the feeling that there’s a better chance he becomes just a normal TE than there is Mahomes becomes just a normal QB.
I’m leaning towards Mahomes. Which seems crazy since there are a million good QBs, and only 3 sure fire TEs. Value says go Kittle, there just aren’t many elite TEs. But those 40 point Mahomes weeks seem more sure-fire than anything Kittle can do.
So, who would you keep? Am I crazy?
