Draft Engine
 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
The 49ers game plan is very simple. Run, run, throw to George Kittle, give Deebo Samuel a crack, run some more. It's simple but effective too and will only change if a) the defense sucks (it won't) or b) someone gets injured. Deebo's injury has therefore opened the door just a little, but it seems far more like the extra targets available from Sanders and perhaps Samuel's absence will be spread between Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne and perhaps some Dante Pettis and Trent Taylor. There's hence simply not enough volume to justify the rookie as a worthwhile pick in most leagues, especially given the role isn't guaranteed. Because he's very cheap, you can draft him for depth, just don't expect a league winner.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
When you're a first-round pick, you're going to get some opportunities, and even more so when the team's No. 1 receiver is out. With Deebo Samuel slated to miss time, Aiyuk is likely to lead the 49ers receivers in targets over the first few weeks. Knowing the schedule starts with the Cardinals, Jets, and Giants, he might get off to a hot start. While watching college film on Aiyuk, he's someone who popped at times, but would then disappear during others. I classified him as more fast than quick, as he is shifty in routes, but lacks elite short-area burst. I thought he'd be a field stretcher who could eventually turn into a complete receiver with some refinement in his intermediate routes. Knowing Garoppolo was arguably the best deep-ball passer in the league last year, that seems like a match. The issue is that the 49ers had him throw deep just 6.5 percent of the time, which was the lowest in the league. We need those numbers to go up for Aiyuk to truly explode. Knowing his early season schedule, it's not a bad idea to snag him as a WR5 and see what happens.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
Brandon Aiyuk could not have landed in a better spot than San Francisco. They love getting their WRs the ball in space and Aiyuk is dangerous with the ball in his hands. Add the fact that Deebo Samuel is slated to miss at least the first few weeks, and we could have an immediate contributor out of Aiyuk.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
Brandon Aiyuk was one of my most confusing evaluations throughout the pre-draft process and my grade reflects that. He has the draft capital, but Aiyuk's best utilized as a deep-passing option and that doesn't exactly fit Garropolo's skillset. Aiyuk may be one of the players that's better for a NFL offense than for fantasy football.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.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 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.
