2. Chiefs Offensive Player of the Year - Patrick Mahomes, QB
It's rather fitting that we can all agree Patrick Mahomes isn't playing his best football, yet he's still the betting favorite to win NFL MVP captaining an offense that ranks fourth in the league in yards per play (5.7).
Mahomes is on pace for 4,613 passing yards with a 68.6% completion percentage and 32 TDs to 15 interceptions. That's a down year by his ridiculous standards, but he gets the nod for this CMA Award because of how he's transformed his game to fit the Chiefs' needs.
He's utilizing his legs more than ever before, pacing for 487 rushing yards with countless long runs late in games to seal wins.
Mahomes' career-high in rushing is 387 yards, so he should blow that out of the water. I still firmly believe in his ability to put up points with his arm, though it's been beautiful to watch him extend drives with his legs as well.
It's impossible to give Mahomes the Chiefs' MVP overall, given the outstanding play of the defense, but this offense is in better shape than most fans believe.
Once Mahomes and the offense starts clicking again, watch out. For now, he's the Chiefs' Offensive Player of the Year.
