Commands nine targets
Valdes-Scantling recorded four receptions on nine targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 36-28 win over the Rams.
Valdes-Scantling finished tied for the team lead with nine targets and likely benefited from the absence of Randall Cobb (groin) in the second half. Valdes-Scantling now has 19 targets combined across his last two games. He continued to serve as a deep threat for the team, as he recorded a 28-yard reception early in the third quarter. As a result of that reception, Valdes-Scantling now has at least one reception of 20 or more yards in three consecutive games and has topped 40 total receiving yards on each occasion.
