Shark Bites

Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling has a year left on his contract, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to stay in K.C. this season. The Chiefs have decisions to make on extensions with other players, including DT Chris Jones and CB L'Jarius Sneed. If they need more cap space, MVS looks like a prime candidate to help. He's set to count nearly $14 million against the 2024 cap, whereas cutting the vet would leave just a $2 million dead-cap hit. Valdes-Scantling averaged a career-low 1.3 receptions per game in 2023, his second with the Chiefs. He also set a career low with 15.0 yards per catch and has scored just three TDs across two seasons. Frankly, we'll be a little surprised if Kansas City doesn't at least look to restructure MVS this offseason. You shouldn't be looking his way in best ball drafts right now anyway, so there's low potential fantasy impact to this situation.

The Chiefs released WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling. It was a no-brainer move, saving the team $12 million against the 2024 salary cap. MVS was a major bust in Kansas City, totaling just 1,002 receiving yards and three TDs across 33 regular-season games over the past two seasons. We'll see where the 29-year-old lands next, but he's a long shot for reliable fantasy value. Valdes-Scantling can be ignored in early best-ball drafts.

Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) "plans to play" vs. the Bucs tonight, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. We'd try not to use MVS in season-long fantasy lineups at less than 100%.

Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) is questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Bucs. He was limited on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out Thursday’s practice. MVS isn’t a recommended Week 4 fantasy play at less than 100%. His absence would free up snaps for WRs Skyy Moore and/or Justin Watson.

Chiefs WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen) went from a limited practice on Wednesday to no practice on Thursday. So his availability for Sunday night's game vs. the Bucs is now in question. Check back tomorrow for another update.
