Skyy Moore Likely To Compete With Kadarius Toney

Wednesday, July 10, 9:19 PM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Skyy Moore had a disappointing 2023 season and finished the year with a knee injury. Moore needs to re-establish his role within the offense, whether as a primary slot receiver or a trusted all-around receiver like seven-year veteran Justin Watson. The 23-year-old is likely to compete with Kadarius Toney, who also disappointed last year, for regular-season snaps if both players make the initial roster. If Moore is released or traded on roster cutdown day, it would create $1.29 million in salary cap space for the Chiefs with less than $500,000 in dead money, according to Over the Cap. It's saying a lot that the 23-year-old second-rounder in 2022 isn't a roster lock, even with Rashee Rice expected to serve a suspension. But he has just 43 receptions for 494 yards and one touchdown in his first two NFL seasons, and the Chiefs added Marquise Brown and rookie Xavier Worthy this offseason.

Treylon Burks Contributing On Special Teams

Tuesday, June 4, 3:56 PM

Tennessee Titans wide receiver Treylon Burks was working as a gunner on the punt team on Tuesday, and he might need to carve out a role on special teams to ensure he's on the team's active roster in 2024. When asked if Burks will have to contribute on special teams, head coach Brian Callahan said, "Absolutely, he's going to have to contribute. You only get so many hats on game day, and if he's one of those guys on game day, we're going to have to find a place for him." This is far from a great sign for dynasty fantasy managers holding Burks on rosters, and the report will likely drop his 2024 fantasy value even further. If he fails to make an impact on special teams, he could find himself as a healthy scratch during the regular season. On the flip side, the team being willing to put him on special teams indicates he's likely stuck in the WR4 role behind DeAndre Hopkins, Calvin Ridley, and Tyler Boyd. Even if one of those players gets injured, his fantasy floor would be low, and his ceiling would be limited based on his production through his first 22 NFL games (665 yards).
