Draft note
by John Paulsen
MVS caught 26-of-55 targets for 430 yards and a three touchdowns in 11 games last season. He averaged 2.4-39-0.27 compared to 2.1-43-0.38 the year before, so his per game numbers took a slight dip from his third to his fourth season. The Chiefs gave him the fourth-most guaranteed money ($15.0 million) after Christian Kirk ($37.0 M), Allen Robinson ($30.8 M) and Russell Gage ($20.0 M), signing him to a three-year deal in an attempt to replace some of what Tyreek Hill brought to the offense. He can’t compare to Hill as a route runner, but MVS does fare pretty well on his deep routes. HC Andy Reid said that he’s “able to work some of the primary underneath routes” that he didn’t run often in Green Bay, so perhaps the Chiefs have a bigger role in store for Valdes-Scantling. Also, he has reportedly developed a “strong connection” with Patrick Mahomes in offseason activities, which is always good to hear.

KC WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Indianapolis Colts

Marquez Valdes-Scantling tied Travis Kelce for the most targets on the team last week (7), but he wasn't very productive, finishing 2-13. MVS has now finished below 50 receiving yards in each of the first two games, and that's likely what his production will be most weeks moving forward. He's always a threat for a big play, but he's a boom-or-bust player who will have more busts than boom. He gets an OK matchup vs. the Colts this week where he should be viewed as a low-end WR4 play.
