In the two games that Hill has completely gone off, Watkins has averaged just 2.5 receptions for 19.5 yards, clearly taking a backseat to the show. In the other three full games he's played, he's averaged 5.7 receptions for 77.7 yards. The Bengals aren't shadowing anyone, so just like Hill, he'll see a mixture of all three cornerbacks. Both William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick have played average football at best, but slot cornerback Darqueze Dennard is almost surely out this week, meaning they'll turn to 2016 undrafted free agent Tony McRae in the slot, a cornerback who's played exactly 70 snaps in the NFL. Watkins and Hill both run roughly 40 percent of their routes from the slot, so it's tough to say which player will benefit most. Watkins should continue to be plugged-in as an upside WR3.

Sammy Watkins only manages 18 yards in loss to Patriots

Sammy Watkins had two receptions for 18 yards on four targets in the Chiefs' 43-40 loss to the Patriots Sunday night. He added one rush for a loss of one yard.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was not a factor in Kansas City's first loss of the season. Despite the poor outing, Watkins remains in the WR2/3 conversation in a prolific offense.
