Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With Alshon Jeffery projected to start the season on the PUP list, Jackson is a screaming steal at his current ADP. We've seen what Jackson can do when he's fully healthy in this offense and right now, Jackson is the smartest selection you can make in the late rounds of your draft. He can be plugged in immediately as a WR2/WR3 into your lineup and he'll still have value as long as he stays healthy. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 You can say what you want about Watkins being an overall disappointment but when he was actually healthy, Watkins was a top 10 fantasy wideout through 8 games and was the Chiefs' top receiver in the playoffs. The former top-five pick has tons of upside for a late-round wideout because of his ability but also the presence of Patrick Mahomes. At this point in Watkins' career, you don't have to invest much to buy the lottery ticket.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We only got to see Jackson in Doug Pederson's offense for one full game before the wheels fell off and Jackson needed to be shut down. In that game, he caught 8-of-9 targets for 154 yards and two touchdowns. The Eagles drafted a lot of speed, but Jackson will be there to mentor them and will be starting in 2WR sets.It seems like so long ago that Watkins was relevant in fantasy football, despite having the second-best single-game performance for a wide receiver in 2019 and playing with Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs went out and drafted a pass-catching running back, but didnt add any wide receivers to the mix, which means Watkins should be in the neighborhood of 75-85 targets once again. He's a high-upside WR4/5-type option, as we've seen him perform at a high level in this league.

Hail to Fantasy Football
Assuming he's healthy this season, I had him way too low...maybe I still do, but I'll always be low on DeSean versus the ECR. 
Seth Miller

 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.
