Stock Down: Skyy Moore

It has to be just about over for Skyy Moore, who turned in yet another awful performance with only 1 catch for 8 yards. This is the third time this year that Skyy has been held under 2 catches and under 15 yards.

The worst part about his performance was him coming up small with the game on the line. On a 4th-and-2 down by 12, Moore had a step on his defender in the end zone, and Mahomes put the ball in the perfect spot, but Moore could not come up with it.

Patrick Mahomes must have the patience of a saint, saying after the game that he will keep throwing it to him because he trusts him. I would not bet on that trust lasting a whole lot longer because Moore has proven time and again that he is just not that guy. The Chiefs' gamble on Skyy Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Kadarius Toney being the leaders of the wide receiver corps is failing and actively holding this team back.

When the Chiefs needed Moore the most, he let a game-altering touchdown bounce right off his hands. The worst part about it is that it comes as a surprise to nobody.
