  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    Wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling managed to lead the Kansas City Chiefs in receiving with 48 yards on two receptions during Week 1 versus the Detroit Lions. The 28-year-old only earned two targets over his 33 routes run, however, and hasn't been able to regularly command quarterback Patrick Mahomes' attention in his Chiefs career. With Travis Kelce (knee) looking ready to rock for Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Valdes-Scantling is a boom-or-bust WR4 without a ton of pop after eclipsing 70 yards only three times in 17 regular-season games last season. MVS seems to be a more a valuable real-life presence at this point as a space creator for Kelce in the short and intermediate levels of the field.

  • Offseason In Review: Kansas City Chiefs

    Headshot for Felix Anudike-Uzomah

    As partially chronicled on Netflix, the Chiefs secured their second Super Bowl championship in four seasons. Patrick Mahomes is now 3-for-5 in Super Bowl appearances as a starter and is the first quarterback since Otto Graham (1950-55) to begin an NFL career with five straight conference championship games. The two-time MVP gutted through a high […]

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Looks To Get Behind Defense In Week 1

    Headshot for Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling could draw some extra targets in the season opener versus the Detroit Lions if Travis Kelce (knee) is inactive or limited in any way. After attaining the eighth-highest receiving yards per reception (16.4) last year, however, the inconsistent 28-year-old wideout's role as KC's primary deep threat may be mostly unaffected regardless of Kelce's status. Valdes-Scantling should see a few looks on deep balls against a leaky Detroit defense that oozed the second-most receiving yards to WRs (3238), but his weekly prospects hinge upon his ability to come down with lower-percentage targets. This role leaves MVS as nothing more than a WR4/5 dart throw on Thursday, even in a game that could see plenty of points scored.

  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling Listed As Starter On First Depth Chart

    Headshot for Marquez Valdes-Scantling

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling was listed as a starter on the team's first unofficial depth chart of training camp on Wednesday. This isn't really big news with Kadarius Toney (knee) injured and JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman moving on in free agency this offseason. The 28-year-old has been getting his fair share of work with the first team in training camp alongside fellow starter Skyy Moore, and MVS to take on a bigger role in KC's explosive offense in his second year with the team. In 2022, he caught 42 of his 81 targets for 687 yards and only two touchdowns in 17 regular season games (11 starts). MVS has mostly been inconsistent in fantasy, but given Toney's already lengthy injury history, he's not a bad late-round flier in deeper fantasy leagues.
