Sammy Watkins (hamstring) ruled out for Week 7

Sammy Watkins (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 7 versus Denver.

Fantasy Impact

There was some early-week optimism that Watkins would suit up but the Chiefs are playing it safe since they have the Thursday night game. Watkins' absence should increase playing time for all three of Byron Pringle, Mecole Hardman, and Demarcus Robinson.

Sammy Watkins will not play in Week 6

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) will not play in Week 6.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Watkins will not play in Sunday's matchup against Houston with the same hamstring injury that knocked him out of last Sunday night's loss to the Colts in the first quarter. With Watkins out and Tyreek Hill's playing status promising but still unknown, Mecole Hardman could be busier than normal. Hardman has drawn at least five targets in each of the past four games and could be employed as a high-end flex option with WR2 upside or better if he goes ballistic facing a Texans defense surrendering the ninth-most fantasy points to wide receivers at a 26.6 FPPG pace.

Sammy Watkins (hamstring) reportedly doubtful against Houston

Sammy Watkins has been labeled as doubtful according to beat writers.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was not able to practice in any fashion this week, and it seems that he is a long shot to play in Week 6. Place him on your bench and look for backup options for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins (hamstring) misses practice

Sammy Watkins missed Wednesday's practice with a hamstring injury.

Fantasy Impact

Sammy Watkins injured the hamstring early in Sunday night's contest in Week 5 and did not return. He may be in danger of missing this weekends contest, so this is a situation to monitor closely throughout the week. Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson, and Byron Pringle will all be intriguing options if Watkins is forced to miss any game action.
