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.

Week 4 Fantasy WR PPR Rankings: Must-starts, sleepers, potential busts .
Injuries are the big story in our Week 4 fantasy PPR WR rankings, but fantasy owners are used to that by now. We break down all the potential sleepers, busts, and waiver wire fill-ins who could help if key wide receivers are out again.One of our favorite sleepers so far this season, Laviska Shenault, continued to prove himself worthy of PPR flex consideration with his Thursday Night Football performance. If he's going to catch between three and five passes every game while also running up to five times, that's a solid enough workload. A Week 4 matchup with the Bengals is appealing for sure, and Shenault is the only Jaguars' WR worth playing outside of DJ Chark (if he returns).
