Here's your risk/reward player in the Round 4-5 range, as Watkins presents solid WR3 marks with Tyreek Hill in the lineup, but presents top-12 upside if Hill were to be suspended and/or miss time. Watkins also comes with health risks, as his foot injury acted up again in 2018, meaning this is a chronic injury that can resurface at any point. You know the risk, but you also know the potential reward. If drafting him, surround him with a few safer players on your rosterOn a team with not much fantasy appeal, Kirk made a splash his rookie year, totaling 590 yards and three touchdowns on just 68 targets. Under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals are going to be four-wide a lot, which will allow Kirk to get more time in the slot, opposite Larry Fitzgerald, which is where most thought he'd wind up. If Kyler Murray lives up to the hype, Kirk just might be a fantasy starter, and has the chance to overtake Fitzgerald as the top option on the Cardinals
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Kirk has had a lot of buzz this offseason and with good reason. Before missing the last several games with a broken foot, he put up excellent production despite catching passes from Josh Rosen in what was essentially a broken offense. Now with Kliff Kingsbury's system and Kyler Murray throwing him the ball, Kirk has all the makings of a breakout wide receiver. We still haven't quite seen what the offense can do and because Murray is a rookie, there's obviously a bit of risk. But he should be drafted as a WR3 with WR2 upside.
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
Every year he is drafted in the middle rounds and there is a select crowd super excited about drafting him. Every time, whether it be inconsistency or injury, it winds up a bad pick. Not drafing him at ADP. 
Sean Koerner
The Action Network
tyreek hill news hurt him. could be 4th option behind Kelce, Hill, and even Damien Williams 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Watkins hasn't received for 600 or more yards in any of the last three seasons. Granted, he has plenty of skill and perhaps the best quarterback in football but with both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce ahead of him, Watkins is nothing more than a WR3.Kirk is likely to start every game in Kingsbury's new quick-paced offense that may afford the Cardinals 75 snaps per game. Assuming Murray is even a moderately competent passer, that could make Kirk a WR3 or even WR2 if everything clicks.
Nick Zylak
Fantasy Football Advice
Watkins value depends entirely on Hill's suspension. I do expect Hill to be suspended for at least some length of time, but It's impossible to know how long it will be. If he were to miss the season, then Watkins becomes a huge value at his current ADP. If he only misses 4 games to start the season, then he's probably being over drafted.Last season was a disappointment for the entire offense, and it's not surprising that his rookie season numbers didn't look good. The Cardinals ran the second fewest plays per game, and were last in points per game. This season they project to be in the top 5 in plays per gameā€¦leaning more pass heavy and they should at worst be around league average in points per game. Kirk is going to be the Cardinals top WR this season. I love Andy Isabella, and I think that he can have a good season as well, but Kirk is going to be the teams #1 this season. He was a second round pick last season, he had a good college dominator rating, a good SPARQ-x score and an extremely early breakout age. My current projection on him is 68/852/5.5...which isn't crazy high or anything, but it's an extremely reasonable projection, and one that I can easily see him hitting. Even that modest projection has him undervalued as the 33rd WR off the board, going in the late 7th to early 8th round.
