Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He should step back in as Kansas City’s #2 WR, but his upside is lacking with Matt Moore under center against the Packers on Sunday night.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for Sunday night's game against the Packers, barring a setback over the next few days. With Matt Moore under center, though, Watkins is just a low-end WR3.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. He returned to limited practices this week, so a return for next Sunday night's game vs. the Packers seems realistic. With Watkins out last week, the pass routes run for Kansas City's WRs went like this: Demarcus Robinson 37, Byron Pringle 29, Mecole Hardman 25, Tyreek Hill 22. Hill should be closer to a full-go in his 2nd game back from that clavicle injury. His increased playing time figures to come at the expense of Pringle and/or Hardman.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was limited in Tuesday's practice. He reportedly has a shot to return for Thursday night's game against the Broncos -- but he'd be a much more comfortable fantasy start if he puts in a full practice tomorrow.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) has a "good shot" to return for Thursday night's game against the Broncos. It's a bit surprising that he's expected to be ready for the short turnaround after not practicing at all last week. We'll keep a close eye on his practice participation over the next few days.

Injury Predictor

For the 1st time in 3 years, Watkins didn't lose a game to injury in 2017. He left Week 3 early with a concussion, but returned for the contest following that Thursday-nighter. Watkins dealt with no reported issues stemming from his April 2016 foot fracture that required a new set of screws in January 2017. Watkins saw a diminished role with the Rams but matched his previous yardage rates and exceeded his top TD rate. Now he hits a Chiefs offense that saw TE Travis Kelce and WR Tyreek Hill as the only 2 with 100+ targets last year.
