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.

Sammy Watkins to sign with Chiefs

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting impending free agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins plans to sign a three-year deal with the Kansa City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

With the addition of Watkins, the Chiefs are poised to be an offensive juggernaut in 2018 -- if Pat Mahomes lives up to the hype. Already having Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in place in terms of upper echelon pass-catchers -- not to mention Kareem Hunt out of the backfield -- the Chiefs have added another piece around Mahomes to ensure he succeeds. While Watkins is coming off of a down year in targets, receptions and yards, he did score eight TDs last season and most importantly, he remained healthy. Watkins could be the difference maker that gets the Chiefs over the proverbial hump. He's instantly on the WR2 radar for the upcoming fantasy football campaign.
