Kansas City Chiefs impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins has interest from the Chiefs in re-signing him. 'Sammy is a big part of this offense and when he's healthy, we're better,' general manager Brett Veach said. 'If there's a way we can make it work again, we'll certainly try to do that. Love having him around.'
Huddle Up: Watkins has been extremely brittle, but he could be a PPR WR4 if he's back with KC.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) was a full participant in practice Friday, Feb. 5, and is listed as questionable for Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
Huddle Up: Watkins was able to put in his first full practice in awhile -- another strong sign that he will indeed play Sunday for the first time since Week 16 of the regular season. Of course we're likely going to have to wait until the official inactives list is posted Sunday, but it's not looking like Watkins will be on that list.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Feb. 4.
Huddle Up: Watkins hasn't played or put in a full practice since Week 16. He told reporters Tuesday that he is optimistic about playing in the Super Bowl, but he's probably going to need a full practice Friday to justify any hopes of paying off in DFS. Mecole Hardman feels like a much better bet at this point to see more snaps and be more productive.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) participated in practice Monday, Feb. 1, according to head coach Andy Reid. Per Reid, Watkins was held of the team's previous practice (Friday, Jan. 29) as a precaution.
Huddle Up: If Watkins can get in a full week of practice this week, he will likely get the start for Super Bowl LV. If not, Mecole Hardman becomes a high-upside option against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that is susceptible to the deep ball. If Watkins is cleared, it should not come as a shock if he is heavily involved in the short passing game with the Kansas City offensive line ailing.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (calf) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 29, and is listed as questionable on the team's injury report for Super Bowl LV.
Huddle Up: It's important to remember the league makes each of its Super Bowl participants file an injury report as if it was playing at the end of the bye week for the big game. Watkins hasn't played since Week 16 but was reportedly close to going last weekend. His downgrade on Friday isn't the best news, but he is still expected to play barring a setback. Given his recent performances in the playoffs and Andy Reid's willingness to get him the ball in big spots, don't be surprised if Watkins fares well in his return to the field.
