Marquez Valdes-Scantling News
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling hopes to "be an immediate impact right away" for his new team. The 27-year-old, who signed a three-year, $30 million deal to join the Chiefs, played for Green Bay during the first four years of his career. He wasn't consistent by any means, racking up 2,153 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns off 123 catches throughout his tenure as a Packer. However, he no longer shares the field with Davante Adams, and with Tyreek Hill now in Miami, fantasy managers should acknowledge that Valdes-Scantling's stock is higher than ever. Yet, it may take some time before he builds consistent rapport with his new quarterback, Patrick Mahomes.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling to a three-year, $30 million deal on Thursday, according to his agents. He'll receive $18 million in the first two years, and incentives could push the deal to a maximum of $36 million. The Chiefs moved quickly to bring another receiver in after trading away All-Pro pass-catcher Tyreek Hill on Thursday. Valdes-Scantling, 27, is my no means another Hill, but he'll give Kansas City another deep threat alongside JuJu Smith-Schuster. MVS caught 26 of his 55 targets for 430 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games in 2021. He has a career mark of 17.5 yards per catch in four NFL seasons, but he was too often overshadowed by Davante Adams in Green Bay. The move to KC should make him a more consistent fantasy asset, but the Chiefs still have plenty of weapons.
The Kansas City Chiefs are "50-50" on signing former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling and also "feel good" about adding former Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Ronald Jones II, according to a source. Cornerback Stephon Gilmore could also be in the fold for the Chiefs if his price comes down. Kansas City is looking for more receiver depth after sending Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday in a blockbuster trade. Valdes-Scantling would provide the Chiefs with a downfield threat next to JuJu Smith-Schuster. The 27-year-old has been an inconsistent fantasy play in his four seasons with Green Bay, but he averages 17.5 yards per catch in his career and arguably have much more upside in KC's explosive offense.
