If you were to know that Patrick Mahomes would throw for 443 yards and four touchdowns in Week 2, and that Tyreek Hill was out, you'd have to figure that Watkins had a massive game, right? What about if I told you he had 13 targets? His 10.9 PPR points was obviously a letdown, but there will be better days for him. The Ravens have one of the more talented cornerback groups in the league, but they're likely going to be missing two starters (at least one) at the position. They were without Jimmy Smith last week, and it let to the Cardinals throwing for 349 yards, though there were no touchdowns. Watkins will see a mixture of Brandon Carr, Marlon Humphrey, and Anthony Averett in coverage, so there's no one matchup we can look at. What we do know is that Watkins has played 69 percent of his snaps in the slot, and we just saw the slot duo of Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk tally a combined 11 receptions for 218 yards on 19 targets last week. You'll want to keep Watkins in lineups, especially with the way Mahomes is throwing the ball right now. He may not be a locked-in WR1 but he's a solid upside WR2.

Sammy Watkins catches six balls in win over Oakland

Sammy Watkins had six receptions for 49 yards on 13 targets in the Chiefs' 28-10 win over the Raiders Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was quiet despite seeing big targets against Oakland Sunday. He is the clear WR1 with Tyreek Hill (clavicle) out and is a top option for fantasy going forward.
