Travis Kelce Note

Isiah Pacheco Note

Isiah Pacheco carried the ball 12 times for 70 yards, but just 2 targets. Not Ideal receiving usage, but all other KC RBs combined for two carries. And his snap rate (51%) and route participation were encouraging compared to Week 1. I'd be a buyer of Pacheco ahead of a matchup versus the lowly Chicago Bears. It's the perfect spot for Pacheco.

Skyy Moore Note

Travis Kelce came back and immediately was the Chiefs' No. 1 target. Nine targets but caught just four for 26 yards. Was not in a full-time role (64% snap share) coming off his knee injury.
But Kelce he scored - perks of being Patrick Mahomes' favorite red zone target. Speaking of targets, Mahomes targeted 12 different players...not ideal for fantasy football purposes. Keep in mind through two weeks with no Kelce and a limited Kelce...nobody has more than 13% target share.
Nobody else saw more than 5 (Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson). Skyy Moore led with 70 receiving yards and scored. The majority of yards came on a 54-catch where he was wide open in the 4th quarter. Toney caught all of his 5 targets. Fun twist, also fumble for a 12-yard loss. He leads the team in targets through two weeks (10).
Still, Moore's lack of targets remains concerning. 11% target rate per route run through two games. Woof. Rookie Rashee Rice has the same number of targets and target share (9%) on just 18 routes run (39% target rate per route run). Rice had three targets in Week 2 (one called back for penalty).
Marquez Valdes-Scantling ran the most routes as he tends to do, but a lot of it's just cardio.
For me, the move is to SELL Skyy Moore. Talked about that in Week 2's version of this article because he's just not getting ANY reliable or consistent target share. He scored a big TD in Week 2. Use it as leverage to ship him off. KC plays the Chicago Bears Week 3. No doubt one of these WRs is going to have a big game. Good luck guessing which one. I'll do my best to find the answer.
