It wouldn't shock me to see Watkins finish as the best Chiefs wide receiver, as I believe he's the most talented one. The issue is that he's learning his third offense in three years, which can cripple a wide receiver in year-one. Because of that, Tyreek Hill is the preferred option in 2018. Still, the Chiefs didn't pay Watkins $50 million to see 60-80 targets, so I'd expect him to be a WR3 more often than not. With Pat Mahomes under center and a bad defense, the recipe is there for increased pass attempts. Knowing each of their costs, Watkins is the better fantasy pick.

Sammy Watkins (hip) played but was not targeted in Kansas City's 17-10 loss to the Texans in preseason play Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins played following missing a pair of practices with a sore hip but was not targeted Thursday versus Houston. He remains a value pick with huge upside this season.
