Mike Tagliere

 If you own Sammy Watkins and aren't going to play him in this matchup, cut him now. But seriously, the 49ers secondary was already lacking and will now be without starting safety Eric Reid for this week's game. There's been much made about Watkins' lack of targets through two games, so look for the squeaky wheel to get the grease.
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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Bell handled a much bigger workload in Week 2 and he should be ready to dominate the Bears D this week. 
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Chicago can stop the run, but with so little offense, I expect the Steelers to have an imposing lead, which will lead to Bell seeing plenty of opportunities, which will eventually lead to a big day.
