After a middling start to the season, Smith-Schuster has posted two straight 100-yard receiving games with a touchdown in each. He has established himself as the top receiver for K.C. and should be one of the better options in the league this week against a struggling Titans’ pass defense.
Valdes-Scantling finally got going in the Chiefs’ vertical passing game and crossed over the 100-yard mark for the first time this season. He is still boom-or-bust, but the matchup justifies a flex start if you don’t have any better options.
The same could be said for Hardman, who is coming off three-touchdown performances against the Niners. He has a unique skill set red zone skill set, but he isn’t likely to get a ton of volume.
Expect Toney to get a few touches in his Chiefs debut, but playing him in fantasy will be a big risk. His success in fantasy this week will be highly dependent on whether he can manage to get into the end zone.
