Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Watkins has caught every target he's received this season, but there have been only seven total (just fourth highest on the team), as Jared Goff looks more often to Cooper Kupp. The matchup against the 49ers presents a mixed bag for Watkins. San Francisco got pressure consistently on both Cam Newton and Russell Wilson in the first two games, forcing the quarterbacks to make quick throws and preventing them from allowing big plays to develop. In turn, they've been solid and holding in check outside receivers so far. But Watkins can beat either Rashard Robinson or Dontae Johnson, and Sean McVay will certainly encourage Goff to include Watkins more. He's a WR3 here, but he's far from a safe play.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Fantasy owners have come to expect even less from Watkins than is reasonable after the trade to a "bad offense", the limited targets in the first two weeks and all oft he injuries, but we are talking about one of the most talented receivers in football against one of the worst defenses. He is a surefire start.
Chet Gresham

I see Cooper getting his shots in the red zone this week, but he'll likely see a lot of Josh Norman. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Washington is 13th against fantasy receivers, Cooper did not have a big game last week, but the Raiders targeted WR Michael Crabtree in the red zone. Cooper still has WR1 upside in this matchup.
