It looks like the injury bug finally came back and found its favorite victim, as Sammy is dealing with shoulder and hamstring injuries. You still have to love his opportunity as the number two receiver in the Chiefs offense, but he doesn't have the best track record with injuries. I wouldn't expect him to play in Week 6.

Before you panic and trade Watkins away for a ham sandwich, take a breath and see what happens next week. He didn't live up to expectations with Tyreek Hill out of the lineup, but maybe that's something we all missed. Maybe Watkins performs much better with Hill in the lineup as Hill's someone who'll stretch the field, and not make Watkins the focal point of the offense. Unless you get low-end WR2 value in a trade, hold onto Watkins for the time being.

Annually overrated and injury prone. Just quit him already

Watkins added a hamstring injury to his shoulder woes in Week 5 against the Colts, and appears likely to miss at least a little time. Outside of Week 1, when few people were starting him, Watkins had been a major disappointment despite the absence of Tyreek Hill. Now with injury concerns of his own, Watkins is still a rosterable option, but likely not one that you'll be able to or want to start anytime soon.
