The ball at Chiefs training camp has gone more to one starting wide receiver, Tyreek Hill, than the other, Sammy Watkins. In the preseason opener last week, Hill caught two passes and Watkins none, even though Watkins was in the game for nine snaps, compared to eight for Hill. But offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said these weren’t necessarily signs that Hill would catch more passes than Watkins during the regular season. It’s more an indication, he said, that QB Patrick Mahomes and Watkins are still getting comfortable with one another.
OC Eric Bieniemy said Watkins is doing a good job in camp—and camp is all about finding rhythm. But for now, it looks like Mahomes is more comfortable throwing to Hill. But there are plenty of mouths to feed in the Chiefs' offense.

Week 2 at Pittsburgh Steelers
Sammy Watkins actually played 11 more snaps on offense than Tyreek Hill, but his final numbers weren't great: 3-21-0. He did see five targets, which isn't bad, but he certainly didn't look like the big playmaker we've seen in the past.
Expect Watkins to make some big plays here-and-there throughout the year, but if Week 1 is any indication, he's going to mostly have a small role in this offense while Hill shines. We like Watkins as nothing more than a WR4 against the Steelers in Week 2.
