Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf, hamstring) took full practice reps all week. Watkins will apparently return this week, throwing cold water on Mecole Hardman's Sneaky Start status. Watkins is a boom/bust WR4-type whenever he's healthy.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf, hamstring) practiced fully Wednesday. Watkins should return this week.
Pringle had nine catches for 108 yards while appearing in all 10 games. He also returned seven kickoffs for 247 yards, including a 102-yard return for a touchdown in Week 7. It looked like he passed Hardman on the depth chart against the Raiders Sunday night. With Watkins still hurt, Robinson looks to run as the WR2 and Hardman could move up to the WR3 role.
With Watkins out, it was Pringle who took over as the team's WR3. But Pringle had just four targets, catching three for 17 yards. Pringle was also returning kicks but suffered and ankle injury and didn't return. Robinson had a line of 6-44-0 as the Chiefs rallied to win and were forced to throw 46 times. But outside of Hill and Travis Kelce who combined for 19 catches, 229 yards and two TDs, there's not a lot of chances, especially when Watkins is able to return.
