4. WR Olamide Zaccheaus

Olamide Zaccheaus is another wideout who didn't get much of a chance to shine with his last team. After all, the Philadelphia Eagles limited him to a 41% offensive snap share across 17 games, resulting in the ex-Virginia playmaker only recording 10 receptions for 164 yards and a pair of TDs.

While Zaccheaus' output wasn't anything special, his underlying stats prove that he's capable of more. For starters, the 26-year-old still averaged a personal-best 16.4 yards per reception. Although it came on a small sample size (10 receptions, 20 targets), it still would've ranked second-best on the Chiefs last season.

Zaccheaus has also drawn a triple-digit passer rating when targeted in three of the last five seasons, which includes yielding a rating of 111.2 in 2023.

Again, it's a small sample to go off of, however, it's worth noting that Hardman and Valdez-Scantling drew passer ratings of 41.5 and 73.0, respectively, with the Chiefs last season, highlighting how Zaccheaus is a potential upgrade over the duo.
