From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 17): Welcome back to fantasy prominence Sammy Watkins! He was getting the ball in wide open spaces and ran well after the catch. It's clear the Chiefs Carnival (thanks Mark Stopa) is going to elevate the value of everyone in the offense, even there are some down weeks.

Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs PIT (7 / 6 / 100 / 0 rec, 1 / 31 / 0 rush)

Watkins caught five passes for 90 yards on seven targets, while also rushing once for 31 yards. Watkins was much more involved in the game plan this week than in week 1, and he made the most of his opportunities. Watkins saw passes in the short, intermediate and deep passing game, and was even given an end around, which he showed off his speed to the tune of a 31 yard gain that set up Hunt's touchdown reception. Watkins may be on his third team in three years, but he still has the deep speed and separation skills that made him a top receiving threat in Buffalo. This was on display early in the 1st quarter when the Steelers were playing one on one man coverage. With only one deep safety, and his defender giving him room off the line, Watkins timed his route so that he could come off the snap quickly and then throw a fake to the outside as his defender was closing in on him. Watkins gained separation easily after that and Mahomes threw him a lob pass along the sideline that went for a 40 yard gain and set up the Chiefs second touchdown.

2018 Week 1 vs LAC (5 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)

In his Kansas City Chiefs debut, Sammy Watkins caught three passes on five targets for 21 yards. Much like the rest of the Chiefs offense, there was little need for Watkins to provide a spark, as Tyreek Hill did that all by his lonesome. Mahomes did target Watkins five times, and looked for him deep down the field on two occasions. Watkins longest catch of the day went for 16 yards up the middle of the field on a deep in-route. It was the kind of play that Watkins can make in his sleep, but it was also the type of play that the Chiefs were not getting with their previous #2 receivers. As defenses start to key in on Hill, Watkins will see plenty of single coverage. With his ability to make plays down the field, you will see Watkins splash for the Chiefs this season, it just may not be consistently with so many mouths to feed on offense.

Our View: Watkins looked explosive with lots of room to operate. He still has some long touchdowns in him with the quandries the Chiefs offense will put defenses in all season. He's an upside WR3/Flex against the 49ers next week.
