Patrick Mahomes draws comparison, but how did Brett Favre do in first year as starter? | The Kansas City Star

How did Favre do in his first season as a starter? It’s worth examining, because Mahomes will be taking the reins full time this fall.

Patrick Mahomes Will Be a Sophomore Stud | FantasyPros

Why many are so high on Mahomes is his incredible college production. Although he showed precocious signs as a freshman, it wasn’t until his sophomore year where he was handed the Red Raider offense to show off his passing prowess. He started all 13 games, passed for 4,653 yards and threw 36 touchdowns.

Making the Leap: Matt Nagy-led Bears’ offense prompts intrigue | NFL.com

Robinson has a true No. 1 receiver skill set, which has become increasingly difficult for teams to find in the draft. Gabriel can take the top off a defense and line up anywhere, not unlike what Tyreek Hill did for Nagy in Kansas City. Miller is destined for the slot and has the profile to rack up targets as a rookie like Cooper Kupp did with the Rams last year. Burton is a poor man’s Zach Ertz or a poorer man’s Travis Kelce, having already shown the chops to be a quality NFL starter.

Jay Cutler: I’m not looking to do a lot of work right now | NFL.com

“I’m not really looking to do a lot of work right now. I’m looking to do the exact opposite of that,” Cutler told his wife.

During the opening episode, Cutler, wearing a backward camo hat and sipping coffee after bringing in a cooler of elk meat, was asked by Cavallari if he was 100 percent done with football.

”I mean I can’t say 100,” he replied. “Probably.”

The best fantasy football players you aren’t drafting | NFL.com

Josh Doctson/Paul Richardson, WRs, Washington Redskins

Both of these players have been touted for their athleticism in their relatively short NFL careers, though so far it hasn’t turned into a serious level of production. That could change this season. Doctson was second on the team in targets last season and appears poised for a third-season breakout as a freakish athlete with the ability to go up and get the ball near the goal line.

Richardson leaves Seattle for a better offense that should target him more often, putting him in position for a breakout as a freakish athlete with the ability to go up and get the ball near the goal line. Alex Smith re-invented himself last season as a quarterback who isn’t afraid to take shots down the field. Matching him with a couple of outside playmakers has tantalizing potential.
