How’d We Do?

Patrick Mahomes 2020: “I have no concern that Mahomes will continue to perform at an elite level. This injury was fluky and could’ve happened to anyone. While many players, especially those that are less flexible and less athletically gifted, may have suffered a significant injury, Mahomes managed to return in a mere two weeks. These are all great signs for his health and future risk.”

Injury Risk: Low. 3/10.          Games Played: 15             Games missed due to injury: 0.  

2020 Stats: 4,740 passing yards, 38 TDs, 6 INTs.      2019 Stats: 4,036 passing yards, 26 TDs, 5 INTs.   

Tua Tagovailoa 2020: It’s apparent that he’s talented, but unfortunately, he also seems to be injury-prone. Someone who has already had surgery on both ankles, hip, and suffered injuries to his finger, knee, and possibly wrist by the age of 22 is not exactly a picture of perfect health. The best bet is to let someone else worry about his ability to stay healthy.  For the cost, I will take someone with a similar upside but much less risk”.

Injury Risk: High. 7.5/10.     Games Played: 10              Games missed due to injury: 1.  

2020 Stats: 1,814 passing yards, 11 TDs, 5 INTs 2019.          2019 Stats: N/A

Chris Carson 2020: “Ideally Carson should continue to push around 1,200 yards and 4.5 yards per carry which is about his average over the last two seasons, but I’m (Dr. Morse) concerned his hip won’t allow him to do that.” 

Injury Risk: High. 7/10.        Games Played: 12           Games missed due to injury: 4    

2020 Stats:  681 rushing yards, 5 TDs.          2019 Stats: 1230 rushing yards, 7 TDs

Odell Beckham Jr. 2020: “My ‘risk score’ for Beckham heading into 2020 was 6 out of 10, as I was concerned about the multitude of injuries he had suffered.” That concern came to fruition in Week 7 when he suffered a torn ACL, another season affected by injury.

Injury Risk: Moderate. 6/10.     Games Played: 7       Games missed due to injury: 9   

2020 Stats: 23 receptions, 319 yards, 3 TDs        2019 Stats: 74 receptions, 1,035 yards, 4 TDs

Travis Kelce. 2020: “There is no reason why Kelce won’t continue to be a TE1. He has Patrick Mahomes as his quarterback, and the running game has gotten a boost with the drafting of Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who was the first back taking off the board.’ 

Injury Risk: Low. 1/10.              Games Played: 15         Games missed due to injury: 0

2020 Stats: 105 receptions, 1,416 yards, 11 TDs     2019 Stats: 97 receptions, 1,229 yards, 5 TDs
