|Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins, questionable for Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a foot injury, is expected to play, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

FFToday's Take: Watkins played all of one series in Week 11 against the Rams and hasn't played since with his foot injury. It's anybody's guess how healthy he is or how many snaps he'll see but it's likely he'll be limited in some fashion. His presence throws cold water on dart throw plays like Demarcus Robinson and Chris Conley.

FFToday's Take: It appears Watkins re-injured his foot in Thursday's practice which would explain the Kelvin Benjamin signing yesterday. The Chiefs have now lost two key offensive players in the last week. Chris Conley should continue to start in Watkins place while Benjamin gets up to speed on the offense.

FFToday's Take: Watkins tried to play in Week 11 against the Rams but quickly went to the sidelines and is now unable to practice after the bye week. Watkins' owners should assume he's not going to play in Week 13. Chris Conley would get the start against the Raiders if Watkins sits.
| Sammy Watkins misses practice Saturday|
Questionable with foot injury

|Sammy Watkins is listed as questionable by the Chiefs for Monday night’s game against the Rams. He didn’t practice on Friday or Saturday because of a sore foot. “We’re taking that day by day,’’ coach Andy Reid said. “We’ll see how he does as we go.’’ (Adam Teicher on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Chiefs have a bye in Week 12 so it won't be a surprise if Watkins is held out Monday night against the Rams. Chris Conley would start in his place but wouldn't be a recommended fantasy option.
| Sammy Watkins unlikely to play|
Was limited in practice Friday

|#Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is unlikely to play today vs. the #AZCardinals, sources say. It’s mostly a precaution, and Watkins should be fine next week. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Watkins missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but got in a limited session on Friday. His absence will vault Chris Conley into the starting lineup and could be a sneaky play this week if Patrick Peterson sticks to Tyreek Hill.

Not considered serious

|#Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins was dealing with pain in his foot after Sunday’s game and he had an MRI, source said. While it’s not a serious injury, it may impact his status for Sunday as KC plans for the long run. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Watkins left Week 9 and got his foot re-taped and eventually returned to the game and while Andy Reid downplayed the injury after the game, it won't be a surprise if Watkins sits out Week 10. If he does, Chris Conley would likely replace him in the starting lineup.
