Patrick Mahomes is arguably the most electric player in the league, but he's dealt with a myriad of injuries this season and hasn't seen the field since Week 7 after fracturing his kneecap.

Thankfully, it looks like Mahomes could be returning in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans.

While Matt Moore has played well in Mahomes' absence, this news is obviously a boost to the entire Chiefs' offense. Moore averaged 7.63 yards per attempt in his two games as a starter, while Mahomes averaged 8.8 last season and 9.0 in 2019.

Mahomes' return should lead to more explosive, down-field plays for some of Kansas City's top pass-catchers, like Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

This also is a pretty good spot for Mahomes to return, as Tennessee's defense has been solid, if not spectacular this season. The Titans' secondary ranks No. 16 in opponent's passing yards per game, and No. 17 in opposing passing touchdown percentage.

Assuming Mahomes plays, he's currently listed as QB4 in our Week 10 fantasy football PPR rankings.
