Marquez Valdes-Scantling News
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling stepped up on Sunday with numerous injuries to other receivers on the team, catching six passes for 116 yards and a touchdown while sharing the team lead in targets with eight.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling found the end zone in last week's Divisional Round, but it was his only reception of the contest on just two targets. With Mecole Hardman (pelvis) and Justin Watson (illness) both listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals, Valdes-Scantling could see an uptick in opportunities if the two wideouts are ruled out.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling contributed a six-yard touchdown reception during Sunday's Divisional Round victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 28-year-old was targeted twice in the entire contest. After four years with the Packers, Valdes-Scantling took his talents to the Chiefs and had an impactful role in the post-Tyreek Hill era. He posted a career-high 42 receptions on 81 targets, all while adding 687 yards and two touchdowns. Valdes-Scantling should be viewed as a low-cost DFS play ahead of the AFC Championship.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling has failed to become a consistent fantasy producer despite playing with Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes, so it's fair to say it's not likely to happen. However, the 28-year-old has ranked inside the top 10 wideouts in yards per reception (minimum 25 catches) in each of the last four seasons, so his best ball league upside is tantalizing attached to one of the best deep ball passers the NFL has ever seen. Last season, he only posted...
