Sammy Watkins catches six passes in divisional round win

Sammy Watkins hauled in six receptions for 62 yards as the Chiefs beat the Colts 31-13 in the divisional round.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins lost a fumble in this one, but the good news is he looked close to full health. The highlight was a crossing route where Watkins stutter stepped to create even more yardage downfield. The Chiefs offense just became even harder to defend with a healthy Watkins back in the mix.

Sammy Watkins expected to play against Colts

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to play against Indianapolis.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins hasn't played since Week 11 but is trending toward an active designation for the Divisional Weekend Saturday matinee against the Colts. However, despite his anticipated return, the expectation is for the oft-injured wideout to be on a snap count, which hinders his already lackluster fantasy value. He'll get a Colts defense that finished the regular season surrendering 46.6 percent fewer fantasy points to wide receivers below the 20.7-point league average in the final three games.

Sammy Watkins (foot) questionable vs Colts

Sammy Watkins (foot) is questionable to face the Colts on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The 25-year-old is tentatively expected to play, but Watkins will likely be on a snap count if active. There will likely be an update on his status by Saturday morning.

Sammy Watkins (foot) limited on Wednesday

Sammy Watkins (foot) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

The 25-year-old hasn't played since the middle of November but is tentatively expected to return versus the Colts. It's unlikely he will receive many targets in his first game back even if he's active.

Sammy Watkins ruled out Week 17

Sammy Watkins has been ruled out for Week 17 with his foot injury.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins remains out with the foot injury. It's clear the Chiefs hope that he'll be able to play at some point this offseason since they haven't shut him down for the year yet. In his absence, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce will continue to command a majority of targets while Chris Conley will see an increase in snaps.
