Marquez Valdes-Scantling 'best receiver' in Chiefs program

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling was the "best receiver" during the team's offseason program, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Taylor wrote in June that quarterback Patrick Mahomes displayed a “strong connection” with Valdes-Scantling and he is following up a month later. The free-agent signing "offers a combination of speed and size that [quarterback Patrick] Mahomes has never had before," per Taylor. Travis Kelce and JuJu Smith-Schuster are expected to draw most of Mahomes' targets, but Valdes-Scantling could thrive as a deep threat in an offense looking to replace Tyreek Hill. He will likely be competing for snaps with second-round rookie Skyy Moore and Kansas City incumbent Mecole Hardman.

numberFire's models currently project MVS for 73.5 targets, 38.9 catches, 638.2 yards, and 4.21 touchdowns, and he is the WR56 in our preseason rankings. Moore is projected for 70.3 targets and Hardman is projected for 54.3 targets.
