Kansas City Chiefs rookie Skyy Moore received just two snaps in the team’s Week 2 victory, but he should get more moving forward.
Just two games into Moore’s career, and Chiefs fans are left wondering if they wasted a draft pick. Settle down, people.
Moore earned his second-round selection, as the small-school Western Michigan wide receiver put up impressive measurements at the scouting combine and in team workouts. His time will come, and it should come soon.
“I guarantee you he’ll see more than two snaps throughout the course of the season as we continue to move forward, because the kid brings a lot to the table,” Eric Bieniemy said, per the Kansas City Star. “Obviously, he’s doing a great job on special teams, but also too, it’s time for us to make sure that we allow him to be the player that he needs to become as a receiver as well.”
If Chiefs give Skyy Moore snaps, who should lose them?
If Kansas City does indeed give Moore extra snaps, perhaps a reliable veteran needs to lose them. A tough question posed to Arrowhead Pride suggests Marquez Valdes-Scantling should be the player who loses those snaps, if only because he hasn’t provided as the deep threat the Chiefs signed him to be just yet.
Kansas City wants MVS to be an all-around target, and he’s simply not that. As much as Andy Reid tries, he cannot fit a square peg into a round hole. If anyone has to lose some snaps, it should be the man who was on the field plenty last week, and only secured two catches for 11 yards against a good Chargers secondary.
As for Moore, he’s patiently waiting his turn. Patrick Mahomes will find him.
“Just waiting for my time. I’m not too worried about anything,” Moore told The Star on Thursday. “I know that coach has got a plan. Everybody’s got a plan. So I just let them take the lead.”
The waiting game is wise for Moore, who is taking the opposite approach of fellow rookie George Pickens in Pittsburgh.
