Sammy Watkins posts first catch as a Chief

Sammy Watkins had one reception for 15 yards in the Chiefs' 27-20 preseason loss to the Bears Saturday. He was targeted four times.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins continued his preseason struggles Saturday, but did come away with his first catch as a Chief. The combination of Tyreek Hill's productivity and the slow start for Watkins makes him a risky but high upside proposition for fantasy. He has huge talent and should see volume on a team that will be racing on the scoreboard, making him a WR3 with potential for more this season.

Sammy Watkins 'starting to sync' with Pat Mahomes

Sammy Watkins and Pat Mahomes are "starting to sync," according to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

The Chiefs are asking a lot of Watkins, reportedly having him learn all the WR positions so that he can be deployed in different ways, after signing him to a big deal this offseason. There are a ton of mouths to feed in KC, and it's hard to envision all of the receivers returning value at their current cost, but the fact that the Chiefs invested so much in Watkins is certainly an encouraging sign.
