|Sammy Watkins working "all over the place"|
Free-agent acquisition getting force-fed offense and doing well

|The Chiefs have been, to some extent, caught off guard by how badly Sammy Watkins wants success, how much he wants to make good on his contract, how much he wants to be another strong receiving option. They're asking him to learn all of their wide receiving positions, and he hasn't flinched.
"We're moving him all over the place, and he's handled it," coach Andy Reid said. "We've overloaded him with that. That's how we do it in this offense. That's something new for him. You can tell he's a guy that takes it away from here and studies." (ESPN - Adam Teicher)|
FFToday's Take: Watkins' ADP in PPR formats is slowly creeping up into the sixth-round range, lessening the insane value he was just a week or so ago. Nevertheless, the ability to move around and play X, Y and Z as opposed to the standard X he has played for most of his career can only be a good thing for him, especially with Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce soaking up so much defensive attention. Watkins should be a rock-solid WR3 with WR2 upside in fantasy this season.
