Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Aug. 14, because of an illness.
Huddle Up: Watkins may be sidelined for a few days and could miss the next preseason game but should be fine for the regular season. He is part of the one of the best offenses in the NFL, which helps his fantasy value. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy receiver in 2019.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins has performed well throughout spring practices, according to Nate Taylor of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: Watkins hasn't lived up to his draft status, but injuries have been a big reason why. Depending on how the Tyreek Hill situation plays out, Watkins could find himself as one of the main weapons in the high-powered Kansas City offense. For now, consider him a big-play dependent fantasy option with WR3 upside.
