We already have Moore listed third on the depth chart in terms of fantasy. Hardman is expected to open as the team's WR3 but it's likely only a matter of time before Moore passes him and is the more fantasy-relevant option.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Justin Watson has been impressing in camp and looks to be in the lead for the fifth wide receiver spot.
Watson has been impressing the Chiefs with his precise route running and could push for a weekly role if he can continue to make an impact during the preseason. Watson is currently the favorite to land the fifth wide receiver spot behind JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mecole Hardman, and rookie Skyy Moore. Justyn Ross landing on season-ending injured reserve leaves an opportunity for Watson to emerge as a favorite of Patrick Mahomes. At this point, he is nothing more than an end-of-bench, deep league flier but is someone who could provide massive dividends relative to average draft position. Watson is someone to keep an eye on during the preseason.
In an offseason with change at wide receiver, the Kansas City Chiefs may have an under-the-radar signing working out so far this offseason.
WR Justin Watson signed with K.C. prior to the Tyreek Hill trade, but showed flashes during OTAs. “He’s been a pleasant surprise for me,” Mahomes said. “That dude can roll. He came down to Texas. I threw with him the first day, and I called (general manager Brett) Veach and I was like, ‘Wait, how fast is this guy?’ He was running so fast that I was late on my throws. He’s had two great days.”
Watson could not get on the field for offensive snaps in Tampa Bay, but finds himself going from the G.O.A.T. to a QB who is well on his way to challenging for that title. Unlike in Chicago or Atlanta where being a wideout gets you onto the field, competing in Kansas City is great for Watson's personal growth and worst-case, great audition film for his next team.
Watson has dynasty appeal for now, but with so much unknown in K.C., his fantasy value could skyrocket.
Not ideal for the Bucs, especially if Fournette and/or Bernard is not activated from IR against the Eagles. Philly is very good against the run and Tampa will need one of their better options to suit up.
