A day after being named Pro Bowl MVP, two weeks after being named PFWA’s MVP and a month after being named the other AP’s quarterback of the year, Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes has earned yet another honor.

This one comes from the world of fantasy football—Mahomes has won this year’s DraftKings Fantasy Football Award for Most Valuable Player.

Mahomes led all daily fantasy sports players in scoring throughout the NFL regular season with a grand total of 461.08 fantasy points, averaging more than 28.8 points per week.

In 16 starts, he had 5,097 passing yards for 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions, as well as 60 rush attempts for 272 yards and two touchdowns.

In ESPN weekly fantasy football, Mahomes’ teams advanced to the playoffs in 59 percent of leagues and to the finals in 35.5 percent of leagues.
