Draft Engine
As an outside threat who tends to play faster than the Giants' other receivers, Slayton proved to be a solid complement to Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and tight end Evan Engram last season. Like Patriots quarterback Jarrett Stidham, Slayton may turn out to be a steal as a Day 3 selection in the 2019 NFL Draft after being underutilized as a college player in Auburn's run-oriented offense.Watkins missed six of K.C.'s final seven regular-season games in 2018 before returning to rack up 10 catches for 176 yards over a pair of playoff games. He began '19 with nine catches for 198 yards and three TDs in the season opener, then averaged fewer than 37 yards with no scores over his final 13 regular-season games before totaling 288 yards over three post-season wins.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Darius Slayton had a strong debut season but his fantasy stock was overly boosted by his surprising 8 TDs. Massive regression is coming in an offense that now boasts a healthy Barkley, Engram, Tate and Shepard, something that was never true last season. He's a strong upside pick if everything goes right but not my preferred choice of target.Here's some unexpected Sammy Watkins trivia: He received more targets than Tyreek Hill in 2019, he has the same cap hit as Hill and he's only one year older! I'm not saying Watkins and Hill are even in the same universe fantasy-wise but it is unreasonable to totally dismiss Watkins. We've seen how busy he can get when Hill (or potentially Kelce) is out and he's still had some big games with everybody fit. I want pieces of this Chiefs offense and Watkins is likely to get first crack at the WR2 role. That's worth drafting.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Everyone wants the shiny new toy that just posted 740 yards and eight touchdowns on just 83 targets last year, as evidenced by his WR39 ADP. The issue is stability. With Sterling Shepard and Golden Tate in the mix, it's going to be very hard for Slayton to get consistent targets and be reliable in fantasy. Sure, he had multiple 120-yard, two-touchdown games last year, but you know what else he had... after those games? A game with three targets. Another game with two targets. Keep in mind that was while Evan Engram was out of the lineup. Slayton outproduced what everyone expected last year, being a fifth-round pick, but there's a real chance he's the No. 5 option in this passing attack when everyone is healthy. His average depth of target last year was 14.5 yards down the field, which ranked 10th in all of football. That further indicates a boom/bust player who's being taken as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4. If you want to believe in his ceiling, that's fine, but don't pay for it. He's in the WR4 territory and not as safe as Shepard or Tate. If someone misses time, we saw what he can do if promoted.Does anyone else believe that Watkins may have played through injury in 2019? He hadn't tallied anything less than 8.3 yards per target over the previous four years, and that's despite some subpar quarterback talent in Buffalo and Los Angeles. Knowing that Watkins is the No. 2 option at wide receiver in a Patrick Mahomes-led offense and that he's going outside the top-50 wide receivers is bananas. Sure, he was bad in 2019, but he looked like the player we thought he'd be once they got to the playoffs, as he compiled 14 receptions for 288 yards and a touchdown on 18 targets in their three playoff games. The Chiefs also had an opportunity to move on from Watkins this offseason, but they decided to keep him on the roster. He may not be an every-week option from the get-go, but knowing you have a player tied to Patrick Mahomes who saw six-plus targets in 10-of-17 games last year should carry some weight. Snagging him as a WR4/5 with upside makes too much sense, as we can't let one inefficient year erase what he's been throughout his career. There's an avenue to him finishing as a WR3 without injury in front of him.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Slayton surprised many as a rookie racking up 48 receptions, 740 yards, and eight TDs. For a rookie wideout, catching passes from a rookie QB, those are very impressive numbers. The progression of Jones is going to be key for Slayton but if Jones does take that next step, Slayton could finish as a top-30 WR.Only the real risk-takers go after a guy like Watkins. We all know the upside is there, especially in the Chiefs offense but whether it's due to injury or simply poor performance, he can never string together a strong season. He is a boom or bust flex play at best until he proves he can stay healthy and play at a high level consistently.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Drafting Slayton in 2020 is a bit of a gamble. He was terrific last season, but the rest of the receiving options on the Giants were never fully healthy all at the same time. The Giants are still going to air the ball out a ton this season, but Slayton's going to have to see one or two other receivers miss significant time for him to see the target totals necessary.Watkins has the talent to be a top-24 WR for fantasy football and he's in the right offense for that to happen. For some reason though, Watkins just has not been able to be consistent and he's burned fantasy owners year after year. Watkins is nothing more than a WR4 this season at best.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
With Daniel Jones at QB and Evan Engram playing, Darius Slayton averaged just 3.83 targets per game and never eclipsed a 13.8% target share in a single game. @ConnorAllenNFL 
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
I think he's less likely to take a value hit if targets get squeezed versus some of his slot friends..Targets a game: 2019 - 7 2018 - 6.6 If we can stop trying to call him a bust based on his early career trajectory, and just accept him as a flex play in a dangerous offense we will live a much happier life. His health has been problematic, so I get that. He is not a WR1 or 2, so live with it, and don't draft him as anything more.
