Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Powell has over 150 yards combined in his last two weeks and now Isaiah Crowell has been missing practice this week. It isn't a certainty that Powell will get a workhorse role, but it will certainly be expanded enough to start him even against the Vikings.Watkins is going to have some bad weeks, of course, but that is the case for almost every other WR3 as well. The matter of the fact is that the big game is always right around the corner so he ought to be started most weeks including this one versus the Bengals' lackluster secondary.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Powell is averaging 18 carries over the last two weeks, but his lack of touchdowns and receiving production has severely capped his fantasy value. He's just an RB3/flex option against a Vikings defense that has yet to allow a 100-yard rusher and given up just one rushing touchdown to RBs. As the third option in the KC passing attack, Watkins is somewhat of a boom-or-bust proposition each week. This is a good week to fire him up as a WR3/flex, as he faces off with a beatable Bengals secondary in a projected shootout.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 In the two games that Hill has completely gone off, Watkins has averaged just 2.5 receptions for 19.5 yards, clearly taking a backseat to the show. In the other three full games he's played, he's averaged 5.7 receptions for 77.7 yards. The Bengals aren't shadowing anyone, so just like Hill, he'll see a mixture of all three cornerbacks. Both William Jackson and Dre Kirkpatrick have played average football at best, but slot cornerback Darqueze Dennard is almost surely out this week, meaning they'll turn to 2016 undrafted free agent Tony McRae in the slot, a cornerback who's played exactly 70 snaps in the NFL. Watkins and Hill both run roughly 40 percent of their routes from the slot, so it's tough to say which player will benefit most. Watkins should continue to be plugged-in as an upside WR3.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
 Watkins has WR3 appeal against a Bengals secondary that is just 16th against fantasy receivers.
