Fantasy Football analysis: Chiefs WRs Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman
Watkins is questionable for Sunday with a hamstring injury and has not played since Week 5. In last week’s game, the Chiefs defeated the New York Jets 35-9, and Kansas City’s pass catchers played well. Hill led the wide receiver group with 98 yards on four catches and two touchdowns. Hardman caught seven passes for 96 yards and a touchdown, and Robinson added 63 yards on four catches and a touchdown.
Kansas City will take on the Carolina Panthers on Sunday. In Carolina’s last game out, it allowed Julio Jones to go for 137 yards on seven receptions, and Matt Ryan finished with 281 yards on 21 of 30 passing with zero touchdowns and an interception.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Hill is a must start every single week as a true No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy. Even if he plays, Watkins should remain on the bench till he gets back into the fold. Hardman is a low-end wide receiver No. 3, and Robinson can be left on the bench for fantasy purposes.
