Sammy Watkins Props: What You Need To Know

Last year, Sammy Watkins found his stride in the playoffs after being absent for much of the season. That’s the player he’s been for the Chiefs– inconsistent, but capable of putting up monstrous numbers. During his time with Kansas City, Watkins has surpassed 90 receiving yards in 13% of his regular season games (three times in 23 games) and 60% in the postseason (three of five games).

Watkins missed both of the Chiefs’ playoff games this year and has questions surrounding his health going into this game. While Kansas City is optimistic about his availability, the injury will likely limit his snap count. It’s worth noting Watkins also missed Weeks 6 through 11 this year with another injury.

While postseason Sammy Watkins is exciting at times, there’s a ton of question marks and plenty of other weapons to see targets. However, keep a close eye on his status leading up to the big game and Watkins could prove to be an under-the-radar prop player with conservative over/under totals.
