Fantasy Impact:

With the addition of Watkins, the Chiefs are poised to be an offensive juggernaut in 2018 -- if Pat Mahomes lives up to the hype. Already having Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in place in terms of upper echelon pass-catchers -- not to mention Kareem Hunt out of the backfield -- the Chiefs have added another piece around Mahomes to ensure he succeeds. While Watkins is coming off of a down year in targets, receptions and yards, he did score eight TDs last season and most importantly, he remained healthy. Watkins could be the difference maker that gets the Chiefs over the proverbial hump. He's instantly on the WR2 radar for the upcoming fantasy football campaign.
