Green Bay Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdez-Scantling
When the Miami Dolphins signed Will Fuller this offseason it essentially cost them Kyle Van Noy. They believed they were getting a player who would be able to stretch the field for Tagovailoa and be a weapon alongside DeVante Parker and Jaylen Waddle. Instead, the Dolphins got two games out of Fuller and he is not likely to return.
If the team wants to continue to seek a player that could stretch the field, then the Dolphins would benefit from targeting Green Bay Packers wideout Marquez Valdez-Scantling. The 6-foot-4 wideout out is a special blend of height and speed and he has proven just that as Rodger’s wideout three.
In his 4 year career, Valdez-Scantling has an average yards per reception of 17.5 including a whopping 20.9 yards per catch in 2020. Valdez-Scantling has never had more than 38 catches in a season or over 590 yards in a season, but he did score 6 touchdowns in 2020.
Valdez-Scantling would be a solid wideout three for the Dolphins giving the team a player with the ability to move the ball downfield and make deep contested catches. With Parker’s injury history and the questions marks around the return of Mike Gesicki, he could see a ceiling of wideout two next to Jaylen Waddle.
