Is Sammy Watkins playing Monday night?

UPDATE: Watkins is officially ACTIVE.

Watkins suggested all week that he was healthy after taking a hard helmet-to-helmet hit in Week 2, and Chiefs coach Andy Reid said it was "more neck now than the other part." Either way, Watkins wound up in the NFL's concussion protocol, but he got in a full practice on Saturday,  so that seems like a positive sign. His odds of playing are slightly better than 50/50, but we likely won't know for certain until later in the day Monday.

Watkins started the season with a big Week 1 (7-82-1), then disappeared in Week 2 before exiting early (1-11). That's been his M.O. for the better part of the past five seasons, so fantasy owners should know they can't count on Watkins from week to week, especially in tough matchups like Monday night's showdown against Baltimore. Watkins wouldn't be a recommended play even if he was fully healthy.

If you've waited this long, though, you have to play him if he's active. If he's out, you could pivot to Mecole Hardman or Demarcus Robinson and hope for a long TD toss from Patrick Mahomes. Baltimore doesn't really offer any low-owned options unless you want to roll the dice on Willie Snead or Miles Boykin.

It's important to note that these predictions are just educated guesses. So, if you disagree with our analysis or don't have anyone better or comparable to play, feel free to fire these players up.
