Patrick Mahomes lost his go-to wide receiver in Tyreek Hill after his shocking move to the Miami Dolphins which leaves the quarter-back adapting to the new signings JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Justyn Ross and Skyy Moore.
Who are the viable options for Patrick Mahomes?
Patrick Mahomes only familiar starter left as a wide receiver is Mecole Hardman who wasn't all that great last season and is more likely to play a fewer offensive role with the arrival of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling who are more likely to fill the vacant wide receiving positions by default, they are the viable players as co No1s and Skyy Moore and Justyn Ross will be expected to be the backup players for them.
How will the Chiefs cover for Tyreek Hill's absence?
Travis Kelce will get more attention on offence with Tyreek Hill's absence from the lineup and they'd need to cover for the scoring he offers as he had 24 TDs in his last 32 games with the Chiefs. Valdes-Scantling will probably take on the Chiefs' primary vertical outside duties as he averaged 16.5 yards per catch last season while JuJu Smith-Schuster will be tasked with making the big plays for the Chiefs.
The presence of Scantling and JuJu on the field will give Skyy Moore, who's more of an elusive receiver the freedom to make plays and cover for Tyreek Hill's scoring.
Mecole Hardman will be best suited for the role of a kick returner in the absence of Tyreek Hill.
