Mike Tagliere

Coming out of the bye week, we would've expected more than five targets in two games for Watkins, but he has scored in each of the last two weeks, propping up his fantasy numbers. He's actually seen five or less targets in all but one game this year, so it's hard to love him in great matchups, let alone one against a Vikings team that's allowed just six wide receiver touchdowns this year. Believe it or not, there's a chance that the Vikings don't use Xavier Rhodes in shadow coverage, which would obviously benefit him greatly. Still, he's just a risk/reward WR4 at this point, though the talent remains.  
Dan Harris

Watkins is still getting few targets, but he's making the most of them lately, with 108 yards receiving and two touchdowns in his last two games despite only three catches. The Vikings are mediocre against opposing wide receivers, but Watkins' fate likely depends on if Xavier Rhodes shadows him. If he does, then Watkins is unlikely to have success. If not, then Watkins should see an uptick in targets and have an opportunity to make plays. Given Robert Woods' success recently, it's simply unclear who Rhodes will be assigned to. That leaves Watkins as a borderline Flex play with a wide range of outcomes.
