Chiefs | Sammy Watkins learning multiple spots

Tue, 26 Jun 2018 23:45:52 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins has been learning all of the team's receiver positions during the offseason, which will allow him to line up all over the field. Watkins says head coach Andy Reid has been helping him become a better player by making him learn the entire route tree.

Fantasy Tip: It's tempting to think Watkins might finally deliver on his full potential, but barring injury he is, at best, the No. 3 option in passing game behind Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce. While his apparent development in KC is encouraging, Watkins shouldn't be selected as more than a WR3.

Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes, Sammy Watkins connecting

Thu, 14 Jun 2018 10:16:30 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and WR Sammy Watkins already appear to have a good rapport. Their connection has been a "consistent sight" throughout the offseason program. WR Chris Conley said Watkins has been picking up the offense quickly and CB Steve Nelson added that Watkins has been putting in more time to work out.

Fantasy Tip: Drafting Watkins to your fantasy squad is a tempting but difficult affair. He did score a career-high eight times last season, but only caught 39 passes for 593 yards. The upside is apparent and Watkins has the ability to achieve WR2 numbers, but it would behoove fantasy gamers to select him as a WR3.

Chiefs | Sammy Watkins wows in OTAs

Fri, 25 May 2018 21:04:15 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins made multiple one-handed catches during OTAs Thursday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: His upside and athleticism have never been questioned, but staying healthy has been an issue. Patrick Mahomes is an unknown at the quarterback spot, but Watkins could be worth the gamble as a WR3.

Chiefs | Demarcus Robinson to emerge in 2018?

Thu, 17 May 2018 19:58:07 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Demarcus Robinson's rapport with QB Patrick Mahomes and the presence of WR Tyreek Hill and WR Sammy Watkins on the outside should allow him to exploit defenses underneath this season, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: Kansas City suddenly has a crowded receiving corps, but if Mahomes excels, Robinson could be a nice depth option for fantasy owners in PPR formats.

Chiefs | Sammy Watkins has a lot to offer

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 20:55:38 -0700

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins "hasn't been used correctly as a pro," according to an AFC scout. "If he gets enough touches each game, he can be a difference-maker," the scout said.

Fantasy Tip: To be fair, injuries haven't helped his production either, but playing alongside Tyreek Hill, Watkins has tons of upside as a WR3.

Chiefs | Sammy Watkins agrees with Chiefs

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 05:06:48 -0700

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins agreed to a three-year, $48 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs Tuesday, March 13. The deal includes $30 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has been hurt a lot, and he hasn't posted higher totals than 65 catches, 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns. He'll turn 25 in June, and he could be productive alongside Tyreek Hill. Grab him as a WR3 with room for more.

Bears | Sammy Watkins is Chicago's top target?

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 20:49:29 -0700

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins is reportedly the Chicago Bears' top target in free agency, according to multiple sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Bears will obviously have competition, as the Rams want to keep him and the Green Bay Packers reached out to him Monday. He would be the clear top passing-game option in Chicago should the Bears seal the deal with him, but that scenario would easily be the worst of the three for his fantasy value, likely leaving him as a WR3.
