Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. He's expected to miss at least the rest of the regular season. Watkins' absence makes Chris Conley a boom-or-bust WR4 play.

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 (foot) is out for Sunday’s game against the Raiders. So Chris Conley will again be a full-time player as the #2 WR. He’s posted 2 duds and 1 big game in the 3 outings Watkins missed all or most of this season. Consider Conley a boom/bust WR4 for Week 13.

Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) missed practice again on Thursday. He's a long shot to play against the Raiders this weekend, leaving Chris Conley as Kansas City's #2 WR. In the 3 games Watkins has missed all or most of this year, Conley has posted lines of 4-13, 1-22 and 7-74-2. While he has the upside to have another big one this weekend, he's more likely to come away with something closer to those first 2 lines in what should be an easy win over Oakland.

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.
