2018 FANTASY FOOTBALL HOT STOVE SIGNINGS: SAMMY WATKINS SIGNS WITH CHIEFS FOR THREE-YEARS AND $48 MILLION

                                                                

The Kansas City Chiefs are certainly doing all they can to make the ascension of sophomore QB Patrick Mahomes go smoothly as they reached agreement with free agent wideout Sammy Watkins on a three-year deal worth $48 million early Tuesday.  While blessed with amazing athleticism and natural talent, Watkins' career to this point has been a disappointment due mostly to injuries.  Still, Watkins has big-play potential and joins Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, and Kareem Hunt to make the Chiefs offensive talent as good as any in the game.  This is a very good development for Mahomes who carries immense fantasy football upside if he can take advantage of all his weapons.  In terms of their grades moving forward, Watkins needs to be placed in the high-end WR 3 realm as Hill and Kelce will eat into a lot of potential catches.  Meanwhile, Mahomes is a top backup option in single-passer leagues; with the chance of him being starter-worthy real quick if he figures things out quickly.
