Expert 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 Like fellow wideout Robert Woods, Watkins will reportedly play on Sunday against the 49ers, but will see very little action. Even in the good matchup, he's obviously not worth starting in any format in light of his likely limited workload.
Heath Capps
Fake Teams
Manny Sanders is out and Paxton Lynch is his quarterback. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy receivers and they will likely rest key players. Thomas has a chance to close out 2017 on a high note.
