Isaiah Sirois

Sammy Watkins flashed in Week 1 for the second-straight year. Is he for real this time? I think there's a good case to be made for him as a high-upside WR3/flex option moving forward. He not only led the Chiefs' offense in targets (9) and air yards (59) in a game that Kansas City controlled from the second quarter onward. He's definitely the preferred option over Mecole Hardman. All of that said, he takes on the Chargers' tough secondary, so I would avoid starting him in Week 2. He's a great hold, however, as he should have better days against the Patriots in Week 4 or the Raiders in Week 5. 
Mike Tagliere

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.
