Do we have another DeSean Jackson on our hands where he just lights things up in Week 1 and then lets fantasy owners down for most of the year? Watkins racked up seven catches for 82 yards and a touchdown against the Texans last week, and if you recall, he had nine catches for 198 yards and three touchdowns in Week 1 last year. He didn't top 64 yards the remainder of the regular season, so we can't automatically assume he's a fantasy starter, though the talent is certainly there. The matchup this week makes it easier to keep him on benches, too. The Chargers are not a team to target with wide receivers, as they allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers last year. On the year, they allowed just 128.9 yards per game to them, and that was before they acquired Chris Harris Jr. The Bengals trio totaled just 118 yards last week. Let's make Watkins prove it before trusting him in tough matchups. He's a very risky WR4/5 this week.

Sammy Watkins goes for 82 yards for Kansas City

Sammy Watkins had seven receptions for 82 yards and one touchdown on nine targets in the Chiefs' 34-20 win over the Texans Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins led the Chiefs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards in Thursday's win despite offseason talk of a reduced workload. He exploded in Week 1 last season as well and is likely to be very inconsistent throughout the season. He remains a very talented player on the league's best offense and will have occasional useful weeks for fantasy.
