Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins reportedly re-injured his foot in Thursday's practice. The Kansas City Star's Sam Mellinger reports that Watkins is expected to miss another 4-6 weeks. That timeline would knock him out for the rest of the regular season and potentially cost him playoff games. Kansas City will move forward with WRs Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and newly signed Kelvin Benjamin behind Tyreek Hill. Conley is the only viable fantasy option and looks like a boom-or-bust WR3 the rest of the way.
Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins was knocked out of Monday night's game against the Broncos with a hamstring injury. He reportedly tested the hamstring after exiting but told the trainers that he couldn't get back out there. Watkins' absence leaves Kansas City with Chris Conley, Demarcus Robinson and De'Anthony Thomas behind Tyreek Hill.
Chiefs WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. He’s averaged just 3.1 targets per game this season, so it’s not a significant loss for QB Alex Smith. Wilson’s absence does make WR Demarcus Robinson a more intriguing deep sleeper in a plus matchup.
The Chiefs went with WR Demarcus Robinson in the 4th round of the 2016 draft. Robinson’s college career at Florida was marred by 4 suspensions. He posted a 53-810-7 line in 2014 but dropped to 47-520-2 this past year. Robinson goes 6’1, 203 pounds with a SPARQ score in the 55th percentile, so there’s some upside here. He’ll battle with Chris Conley and Albert Wilson for playing time behind Jeremy Maclin.
