KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Sammy Watkins was out last week, but is expected to return in Week 12 after getting in full practice sessions. Watkins had some appeal before his injury, averaging 4.2-44.4-0.4 in the five games he was active. That's about what we're projecting for Watkins in his return against the Bucs. It's tough to trust any Chiefs receiver in this offense behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. Those two are guarantees each week, with Watkins, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson picking up the rest of the yards. Watkins should be viewed as a boom-or-bust WR5 in Week 12.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Sammy Watkins finished 4-43-0 last week, and added in a fumble for a disappointing game. However, Watkins did have seven targets and he's now seen 7+ targets in three of his four games. The only game he didn't see more targets is the game he left early due to injury. Watkins plays with the rest of the Chiefs starters and gets plenty of looks in each matchup. He's not a star, but he's a decent WR3/WR4 play. He faces the Raiders in Week 5, who are 13th in aFPA to wide receievers.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs. Patriots

Sammy Watkins saw a team-high eight targets last week, finishing 7-62. It's not a great standard league finish, but it's a pretty solid game in PPR formats as Watkins caught many short passes. Watkins struggled in Week 2, but he also played on fewer snaps that game. Watkins should be viewed in WR5 range this week in a decent matchup against the Patriots.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Los Angeles Chargers

Sammy Watkins was surprisingly dominant in Week 1 as he saw a team-high nine targets and converted it into a 7-82-1 night. Watkins was irrelevant in fantasy for the majority of 2019, but started to become productive in the postseason. So far it looks like he's continued that trend into 2020 and if he keeps it up, could become a really valuable fantasy asset moving forward. Watkins faces a Chargers defense this week he struggled against a year ago with 2-26 and 1-8 outings. Watkins was promising in Week 1, but in Week 2 he should be viewed more as a WR4 in a tough matchup.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Houston Texans

Sammy Watkins started 2019 with a monster 9-198-3 game, and then didn't do much after that, including not scoring a touchdown for the rest of the regular season. He bounced back in the playoffs, averaging 4.6-96-0.3 in three games played. We're expecting around a 3.7-43.6 game from him in Week 1 with a low chance of a score, making him a weak WR4 play.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Sammy Watkins had yet another disappointing game last week, finishing 2-28. He's averaging just 38 receiving yards per game since his Week 1 performance, and hasn't scored since then. If you want a receiver who's going to get you a few catches for less than 50 yards and no touchdowns, then Watkins is your ideal start.

KC WR Sammy Watkins - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Chicago Bears

Sammy Watkins finished 3-49 last week, and continued his touchdown drought. Watkins hasn't scored since his monster three-touchdown performance in Week 1. He hasn't even reached 70 yards since that 198-yard game. He's not much more than a desperation play, and should be viewed as a WR5 against Chicago.
