Watkins has all the ability in the world, but of course, his injury history is a real concern. At this point in a fantasy draft, I think it's worth grabbing him if he falls though.Edelman's value took a blow when Brandin Cooks was added. Cooks could beat him out for targets this year, and if Rob Gronkowski stays healthy, he will also take away a big chunk of looks.

Watkins was never 100% healthy withe foot issues this year, if he is healthy and he has a quarterback to throw him the ball, he has WR1 upside.
