The Chiefs expect to have WR Sammy Watkins in the lineup for today's game against the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Watkins is officially questionable after putting in limited practices all week because of the foot injury that has kept him out since Week 11. He'll obviously be a risky fantasy prospect even if active, but there's upside in the game with this week's highest over/under by far.

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.
