Stock is Down: Chiefs Veteran WRs

Could somebody step up and be a difference-maker among the wide receivers on the Chiefs depth chart? Skyy Moore, who was expected to make a jump this year, put up his second goose egg in the reception department. Marquez Valdes-Scantling only had 1 reception for six yards, which bumps his total to only 6 catches on the year. Justin Watson also had 1 catch, and he is only at 8.

Each one of those veteran receivers had a higher snap count than the talented rookie Rashee Rice, who already leads the team in receptions and first downs outside of Travis Kelce. Justyn Ross only saw the field four times and has only 1 reception on the year, so it would be great to see what he can do because it is getting pretty old watching these guys take playing time away from him. Kadarius Toney has also been quite disappointing, and his issues extend to his availability and lack of production.

There is no reason that any of these receivers should be receiving more snaps than Rice going forward, and Ross should also start eating into these guys' playing time. This kind of production from your alleged core group of wideouts is terrible enough, but that lack of production is standing in the way of the growth of young talent; it is enough to make you want to rip your hair out. Let the rookies play and prove they are equal to or better than what is currently rolling out there because these guys are not cutting it.
