Although Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes won the NFL’s MVP award for 2018, he didn’t lead the league in passing yardage. In 2019, he’s projected to make it happen.

Caesers Entertainment has installed Mahomes as a 7/2 favorite to throw for more passing yardage than any other quarterback, even though Caesers has taken receiver Tyreek Hill off the board regarding the odds to lead the league in receiving yardage.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who led all passers in 2018 with 5,129 yards, has 12/1 odds, likely due to the departure of Antonio Brown.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is 11/2, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is 7/1, and Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield is 7/1. Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 9/1, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is 10/1. Rams quarterback Jared Goff is 12/1.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who led the league in passing yardage in 2017 but who dropped to ninth in 2019, has 16/1 odds.

  1. He needs skill players. Kelce is still with the team, but losing Hill and Hunt was huge. They are not easily replaced.

    To a degree that’s true, but Mahomes is that rare talent that makes everyone around him better.

  3. My money will be on Drew Brees and I am no Saints Fan. Mahomes yardage came mostly from YAC with his speedsters who are no longer there.

  4. Wonder who’s favored to put another team on his back, carry them into the playoffs, and for a record 17th year be the guy NOBODY, NO-BODY wants to see in an elimination game. Stats other than playoff wins and rings are for losers.

    Everything was silent about Hill from the Chiefs for weeks. Now, there is talks from people who are close to Chiefs. Over the last week, they are all now saying they expect him in camp by the start of the season pending what ever suspension he gets. This is just speculation but usually when these types of people start making the comments they are. There is some truth to it.

    1 good season does not make a player.

    It wasn’t just a good season, it was a historic season that no one had ever done before.

  7. I wouldn’t make any bets on that one. We all know what the odds-maker’s game is, eh. Vegas…..get your collective heads out of your rectums.

  8. My money is on Big Ben since he will chuck the ball up playing on a Super Bowl team again.
