He'll still be the best pick every year for leading fantasy in scoring and be the top QB, but he'll have "normal elite years" like 4,500/35 TDs rather than "historically elite years" like he put up last year and is on pace for this year. Or maybe I'm wrong and he's going to be the QB/football version of Wayne Gretzky and completely obliterate every statistical mark and lap the field.
There is no statistical regression coming outside of injury.
The rules of the NFL have been changed dramatically to allow for more speed, less contact, and more space. Smaller players that wouldn't have survived "over the middle" in the 90's can now thrive. Andy Reid is the premier designer of space plays. The Kansas City Chiefs have the most speed in the league at WR and TE.
And with perhaps the best arm we've ever seen in the NFL, Patrick Mahomes has arrived at the perfect time to pulp the oranges and juice the stats.
This is the new normal.
This is Sparta.
