Sammy Watkins Player Overview

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.
