I think Funchess will continue to improve and become a strong red-zone target for Cam Newton. Funchess also will likely continue to be the No. 1 wide receiver, but he will need to hold off D.J. Moore for that moniker. Moore's transition into the NFL and the Panthers' offense will likely have a big effect on Funchess' numbers being good or bad.Watkins lands in Kansas City and will be a boom-or-bust fantasy prospect once again. I do like that he gets a strong-armed Patrick Mahomes throwing to him, as the deep ball is where he has done much of his damage in the NFL. I will likely draft Watkins this year for his upside but be prepared for another disappointment.

 Who knows how Watkins will fit in a new system with basically a rookie QB playing but I have to trust the talent here
Kevin Wheeler

 Coach Andy Reid said he's been moving Sammy Watkins "all over the place" on offense. "We were moving him everywhere," Reid said. "He hasn't had to do that in his career." In past stops with the Bills and Rams, Watkins has been a traditional X receiver on the back side of defenses, routinely facing the other team's best corner or seeing double coverage. Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel writes the connection between Patrick Mahomes and Sammy Watkins is "real." Kissel writes Mahomes and Watkins have consistently been connecting throughout the offseason program, and fellow receiver Chris Conley said Watkins has picked up the offense "as fast as anyone I've seen." I generally stay away from this type of off season hype, but Sammy has been hindered by nagging injuries when in Buffalo and zero pre-season prep with his new QB in LA going into last year. Sammy has the athleticism and skill to be a WR1, I'm hoping he is fed the targets he will need to get there.

Funchess took a step forward last year but now Greg Olsen is back and they drafted DJ Moore in the first round. He should regress, obviously, with less targets, but he still has enough appeal to be a depth piece in standard 12-team leagues.Don't give up on Watkins, who was a trainwreck last season. He didn't know the playbook because of when he was traded and the Rams weren't creative with their use of him. Kansas City has big plans for Sammy apparently, and if he can stay healthy, he's got all the talent in the world for a huge breakout.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Funchess averaged 8.3 fantasy points per game and he should still be a solid WR3 in their new offense that is being coached by OC Norv Turner. Watkins has never lived up to his high first round pick billing, but he has a chance to be a WR3 in a revamped KC offense.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It seems that everyone is forgetting how much Greg Olsen means to this offense and why Funchess got the volume he did last year. While he did a solid job, the Panthers felt the need to draft a wide receiver with their first-round pick, and one who'll play the underneath possession-style role, eliminating Funchess' volume. He's going to be a lesser version of Kelvin Benjamin going forward. It wouldn't shock me to see Watkins finish as the best Chiefs wide receiver, as I believe he's the most talented one. The issue is that he's learning his third offense in three years, which can cripple a wide receiver in year-one. Because of that, Tyreek Hill is the preferred option in 2018. Still, the Chiefs didn't pay Watkins $50 million to see 60-80 targets, so I'd expect him to be a WR3 more often than not. With Pat Mahomes under center and a bad defense, the recipe is there for increased pass attempts.
