Marquez Valdes-Scantling Looks to Replace “The Cheetah” in Kansas City
The NFL offseason brings a plethora of changes for all teams and many players. Marquez Valdes-Scantling, a former fifth round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers, has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs after four years in Green Bay. The Chiefs were in need of another speedy threat after Tyreek Hill departed for the Miami Dolphins. Now, MVS will look to make the sure high-powered Chiefs offense does not miss “The Cheetah” too much.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling with the Green Bay Packers
Marquez Valdes-Scantling first took the field for the Green Bay Packers in 2018. Though a later round pick, he played in all 16 games. MVS hauled in 38 receptions for 581 yards and two touchdowns. In 2019, he again played all 16 games catching 26 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns.
2020 saw Valdes-Scantling have a career year for the Green Bay Packers. Again playing in all 16 games, MVS had 33 receptions for 690 yards and six touchdowns. He also led the NFL with 20.9 yards per reception. In the Packers loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC title game, MVS was the lone bright spot on offense. He had four receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown.
Last season, Marquez Valdes-Scantling played in 11 out of 17 games. He had 26 receptions for 430 yards and three touchdowns. While this may seem to indicate a drop in production, Chiefs fans can be encouraged by this: MVS had zero drops in 2021. Once considered a weakness in his game, it has become a strength.
Can Marquez Valdes-Scantling Replace Tyreek Hill?
Of course, few wide receivers can boast the same accomplishments of Tyreek Hill during his tenure with the Chiefs. Six Pro Bowls and three First Team All-Pro selections are remarkable achievements. Hill also had over 1,000 yards receiving in four of his six seasons with the Chiefs.
While it may not seem like MVS is up to the task, one must keep in mind that MVS never received the number of targets that Hill did. The most targets MVS ever had in a season was 73, and that was in his rookie season. The fewest Hill ever had in a season was 83, also in his rookie season.
The Kansas City Chiefs have also signed former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuester. He brings a much different skill-set to the Chief’s offense than MVS. Additionally, MVS will be in an offense that is better suited to his style of play. What this all means is that MVS is sure to see more targets with the Chiefs. This will undoubtedly lead to more production and better numbers.
Can MVS replace Tyreek Hill? He has a better chance than most.
