Fantasy Impact:

Watkins injury is another tough blow to a Charger’s defense that has been decimated by them. Watkins was performing well before going down and had a real chance to make the 53-man roster. If there is a silver lining, the late summer tear should allow Watkins to return at close to full health for the 2019 campaign. He will be 26 at that time.
