View WR Fantasy Rankings »
What You Need to Know:
  • The Chief signed Valdes-Scantling about a week into free agency to a 3-year, $30 million contract with $15 million guaranteed.
    • That places him 30th among WRs in average annual salary and 42nd in guaranteed money.
    • By comparison, the Chiefs gave WR JuJu Smith-Schuster a 1-year, $3.25 million deal – although there are attainable incentives that can make it worth close to $9 million.
  • Valdes-Scantling spent his first 4 NFL seasons in Green Bay.
  • Here are his career highs so far:
    • Targets per game: 5.0 (2021)
    • Catches per game: 2.4 (2018)
    • Yards per game: 43.1 (2020)
    • TDs per game: .38 (2020)
    • Fantasy finish: PPR WR54 and non-PPR WR40 (2020)
  • Valdes-Scantling’s target shares by season:
    • 2018 - 11.4%
    • 2019 - 9.8%
    • 2020 - 12.0%
    • 2021 - 14.1%
  • He was primarily a deep threat in Green Bay, with yearly average depths of target of 13.8, 16.8, 18.2 and 18.2 yards. Those last 3 marks all ranked inside the top 3 among WRs.
  • Valdes-Scantling was only moderately effective in that role. Here are his finishes in Pro Football Focus’ deep receiving grades:
    • 2018 - 11th among 76 qualifiers
    • 2019 - 54th out of 68
    • 2020 - 43rd out of 73
    • 2021- 39th out of 70
  • Valdes-Scantling earned a personal-best overall PFF receiving grade last year. But it ranked just 76th among 103 qualifying WRs. He ranked 83rd, 90th and 88th in his first 3 seasons.
  • A day before signing Valdes-Scantling, the Chiefs traded WR Tyreek Hill to Miami.
    • Hill garnered a career-high 9.4 targets per game last year.
    • He averaged 9.0, 7.4, and 8.6 targets per game the previous 3 seasons.
  • The Chiefs also lost WRs Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson this offseason. Those 2 combined for 15.0% of the Chiefs’ targets, 15.0% of the receptions, 16.9% of the receiving yards and 21.6% of the receiving scores last year.
  • In addition to adding Valdes-Scantling and Smith-Schuster, the Chiefs spent a Round 2 pick on Skyy Moore this spring and return Mecole Hardman.
Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Valdes-Scantling was an inconsistent deep threat who was never really a reliable fantasy play across 4 seasons in Green Bay.

So it was surprising to see the Chiefs give him a 3-year, $30 million deal in free agency. That money says that they believe he can produce more than he did with the Packers. And the opportunity is certainly there with Tyreek Hill’s departure.

Valdes-Scantling should at least present a high weekly ceiling in this Chiefs offense. We’ll see if he can find enough consistency to be a reliable fantasy starter.

Patrick Mahomes, QB KC

11:21pm EST 11/27/22

Mahomes spreads 320 yards around

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes didn't have his sharpest outing in Sunday's win over the Rams. He did throw for 320 yards, hitting 10 different teammates with no Chief collecting more than 57 receiving yards. TE Travis Kelce led in yards and targets (8), claiming the TD among his 4 catches. Rookie WR Skyy Moore led the team with 5 catches (for just 36 yards) among 6 targets. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling was the only other Chief to catch more than 3 balls or crack 40 yards.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. WR Kadarius Toney (hamstring) did not practice all week and is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. That leaves WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and Justin Watson behind Smith-Schuster.

Teammate injuries presented opportunity for Chiefs rookie WR Skyy Moore in Sunday night's win over the Chargers. he finished 2nd on the team in targets (6) and receptions (5), trailing only TE Travis Kelce. Moore's 63 yards ranked 3rd on the team. Moore still finished just 3rd among K.C. wideouts in routes and 6th among all Chiefs. We'll see about the injury situations for JuJu Smith-Schuster and Kadarius Toney heading into Week 12. Mecole Hardman is out at least 3 more games on IR.

Chiefs WR JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) is out for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers. No surprise after he sustained his 4th documented concussion last week. We'll see if Smith-Schuster can get cleared for Week 12. With WR Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) on IR, Kansas City is down to WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson and Skyy Moore. See where they sit in the Week 11 WR Rankings.

View all JuJu Smith-Schuster Shark Bites »

Chiefs WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) and Mecole Hardman (abdomen, illness) missed Wednesday's practice. Valdes-Scantling should be fine for Sunday night's game vs. the Chargers, but Smith-Schuster and Hardman are iffy. Their absences would likely mean a significant role for WR Kadarius Toney.

Dynasty Write-up
Kansas City handed MVS a 3-year, $30 million contract in free agency right after dealing Tyreek Hill to Miami. Valdes-Scantling became a downfield operator in Green Bay and has plenty of intrigue now that he's tied to Patrick Mahomes.
