11. player. 124. . . . Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Marquez Valdes-Scantling is the only fully healthy Kansas City wide receiver heading into the big matchup versus the Eagles.

Status: Ready to go.

In the offseason, Marquez Valdes-Scantling left the comfy confines of Lambeau Field and his quarterback Aaron Rodgers for a three-year, 30-million-dollar deal to play with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Valdes-Scantling would have his best season since 2020 in his new arrangement, racking up 42 receptions for 687 yards and two touchdowns. One of his best games was versus the San Francisco 49ers, where he had three receptions for 111 yards in the blowout 44-23 win.

Marquez was the only wide receiver that didn’t get hurt in the AFC Championship Game victory, and he stepped up when Kansas City really needed him.

The former USF receiver had no problem finding holes in the Cincinnati Bengals secondary, as he recorded six receptions for 116 yards with one touchdown. He also was averaging 19.3 yards per catch in the win, so the Bengals had no answer for him in that game.

It looks like the whole Chiefs wide receiving core will all hit the field on Sunday in Super Bowl LVII. The question is how will this group do with being matched up with the likes of the Eagles secondary with Darius Slay, James Bradberry, and C. J. Gardner-Johnson?  All this will be answered on Sunday, and the game cannot come soon enough!
