Draft note
by John Paulsen
Watkins had a couple of low-snap games (7%, 15%) that weighed down his per game averages. When those are removed, he averaged 4.9-64-0.38 on 6.6 targets per game in eight games, which are high-end fantasy WR2 numbers. Given that he has missed 18 of his last 64 games, there is some injury risk baked into his projection, but he has as much upside as anyone being drafted in his range.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 at Denver Broncos

UPDATE: Watkins has been ruled out this week.

Sammy Watkins may return this week as he's been limited in practice so far. His health status is worth monitoring, however, as he was inactive in Week 6 and Kansas City plays on Thursday in Week 7. And a hamstring injury is something that can linger, so there's a strong chance he sits out. If he does play, he'll get a tough matchup against the Broncos who are allowing the fewest fantasy points to receivers this season. We like Watkins as a WR3 option, assuming he's healthy.
