Watkins has 'pretty good chance' for Week 11 return | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Chiefs HC Andy Reid said Monday that WR Sammy Watkins and LB Anthony Hitchens have "a pretty good chance" to return for Monday night's game against the Rams in Mexico City, according to BJ Kissel of the team website. Watkins was inactive for Sunday's win over the Cardinals with a foot injury. Hitchens was active but didn't play a snap as he deals with a rib injury. We'll keep an eye on both players throughout the week, but expect to have Watkins and Hitchens available for Week 11 fantasy usage.
