Kansas City remains a prime destination for fantasy football goodness, and Sammy Watkins has a chance to be the prime beneficiary from Tyreek Hill’s potential release.

The sixth-year receiver hasn’t played 16 games in a season since his rookie year and hasn’t offered much fantasy upside since 2015, but it’s tough to ignore Watkins’ potential status as Patrick Mahomes’ No. 1 wide receiver. It’d be shocking if Watkins doesn’t start the season as the No. 2 pass game option after Travis Kelce. Ian Hartitz
