Smith-Schuster and Valdes-Scantling have been the only full-time wide receivers for the Chiefs (highest route run rate of 83.1%). The problem for Valdes-Scantling is he's been the team's trusted man coverage beater, with 66.7% of his targets coming against this coverage type. With a boatload of zone coverage in store for these receivers in Week 3, you should sit Valdes-Scantling. He's a WR5/6 type.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling underwhelming in season opener

Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught four passes for 44 yards and had one rush for negative three yards in the Chiefs' 44-21 win over the Cardinals Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

There has been some hope that Valdes-Scantling could step up as the Chiefs top receiver this season, but he wasn't their top option Sunday. He still ended up having a decent outing, but fantasy managers would've liked to see more out of the veteran wideout. The Chiefs will likely spread the ball out all year, however, so he could be an interesting buy-low option for Week 2.
