Chiefs.com's B.J. Kissel writes the connection between Patrick Mahomes and Sammy Watkins is "real."
Kissel writes Mahomes and Watkins have consistently been connecting throughout the offseason program, and fellow receiver Chris Conley said Watkins has picked up the offense "as fast as anyone I've seen." This kind of offseason chatter should always be taken with the biggest grain of salt, but it is still better than the alternative. Watkins' fantasy upside is limited with Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Kareem Hunt also demanding targets, but he has some upside in the middle rounds. Jun 14 - 12:46 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports the Rams are more likely to use the franchise tag on DB Lamarcus Joyner than Sammy Watkins.

Formerly the Rams' slot corner, Joyner shifted full time to safety in 2017 and had by far his best season. Joyner picked off the first three passes of his career, forced a fumble and earned high all-around marks from Pro Football Focus. He turns 28 in November.

Speaking Thursday, Rams coach Sean McVay said top receivers Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Sammy Watkins would see little Week 17 playing time.

We wouldn't be surprised if the receiver trio joined Jared Goff and Todd Gurley in seeing zero snaps. Even if Woods doesn't play, he will finish the season with a new career high in yards (781).

Coach Bruce Arians said CB Patrick Peterson (quad) has looked "fine" and will play Week 7 against the Rams.

Peterson had to be pulled from Week 6 against the Bucs and was limited in practice this week. However, he's ready to roll for his date with Sammy Watkins, who has been a complete non-factor since his big game against the 49ers a few Thursdays ago. Watkins will remain that way in Peterson's shadow coverage. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp have better matchups.

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk on NBC Sports, the Rams aren't shopping Tavon Austin.

There was speculation Austin could be dealt after the Rams acquired Sammy Watkins from Buffalo on Friday, but multiple outlets have confirmed that isn't the case. Obviously Watkins' presence will mean fewer targets for Austin, whose fantasy appeal was flimsy to begin with. A glorified gadget player (despite ludicrous comparisons to DeSean Jackson), the former eighth overall pick ranked 123rd out of 154 qualified receivers in yards per reception last season.

Sammy Watkins' presence will be a downgrade for Robert Woods' fantasy production.

Woods was never hugely appealing for fantasy purposes with Jared Goff as his quarterback, but at least his volume was relatively safe with little to no competition for targets. That all changed in one fell swoop Friday when the Rams acquired Watkins in a blockbuster trade with Buffalo. Woods is all too familiar with Watkins, having spent the last three years playing beside him in Orchard Park. Even with Watkins constantly injured, Woods never topped 700 yards receiving in those three seasons and that was with Tyrod Taylor, who has proven to be far superior to Goff, under center. Once considered a dart-throw WR4, Woods can probably go undrafted in most formats now.
