Player Outlook
Watkins is likely to slot in as the third wide receiver in Philadelphia alongside A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Barring injury, he's unlikely to have Fantasy value outside of deep Best Ball leagues where you don't have to decide when to start him. Watkins' career 15.1 yards per catch shows his big-play ability, but he just doesn't have the target opportunity to be a steady contributor.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Flashes as deep threat

    Watkins recorded two receptions on three targets for 32 yards in Friday's 24-21 preseason loss to the Jets. Watkins opened the game with a 28-yard reception, finding open space after Jalen Hurts rolled out to his right to extend the play. He figures to open the season as the Eagles' third receiver, but he'll clearly be prioritized behind A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith (groin) and also potentially Dallas Goedert in the passing offense. Watkins is coming off of a relatively strong 2021 season, during which he recorded 43 receptions for 647 yards and one touchdown.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Bumped to third on depth chart

    Watkins is now seated at third on the Eagles' depth chart after the acquisition of A.J. Brown, Zach Berman of the Athletic reports. Watkins' volume almost certainly takes a hit, as he had been slated to be the Eagles' No. 2 receiver after DeVonta Smith prior to the Brown trade. It's possible, however, that with defenses now having two legit No. 1 receivers to focus on, the Southern Miss product will be more open to scoop up targets and rack up yards. The most likely scenario is that the 2020 sixth-round pick will find it hard to surpass last year's 43 catches and 647 yards.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Could be No. 2 receiver next year

    Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni said Wednesday that Watkins can be one of the better No. 2 receivers in the league, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. The 2020 sixth-round pick doesn't have the numbers to back that up at this stage in his career, but he took a huge step forward after a quiet rookie season, showing a knack for big plays and high-difficulty catches. Jalen Reagor, a first-round pick from the same draft, can't say the same, which is part of the reason Sirianni referred to him as the team's No. 3 receiver when talking with reporters Wednesday. Of course, the Eagles could also draft or sign someone to push both Watkins and Reagor down the depth chart, but Sirianni's words seemingly support the notion of Watkins at least being the third guy in 2022. Watkins finished 2021 with a 43-647-1 receiving line on 62 targets, while Reagor managed just 33-299-2 on 57 looks.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Seven targets in postseason loss

    Watkins caught two of seven targets for 35 yards during Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Buccaneers. Watkins drew seven targets during the Eagles' Week 18 loss to the Cowboys, and he matched that total during the postseason opener. The 23-year-old saw an inconsistent workload during the 2021 campaign and secured 43 of 62 targets for 647 yards and a touchdown while rushing once for three yards across 17 regular-season appearances. He showed some improvement during his second professional campaign and could enter the 2022 season as Philadelphia's No. 2 option at wide receiver.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Scores in finale

    Watkins caught five of seven targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 51-26 loss to the Cowboys. Watkins helped Philadelphia move the sticks during Saturday's contest, but his performance was enhanced by a 36-yard touchdown with under two minutes remaining. That play marked the second-year wideout's first and only end-zone trip of the regular season. Given his strong finish, though, Watkins will strive to carry some of his momentum into next weekend's playoff game.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Logs full practice

    Watkins (knee) was a full practice participant Wednesday. Watkins will be on the field Saturday against the Cowboys, but he still hasn't caught more than four passes in a game this season, and his snap share dropped well south of the usual range in two of the past three weeks. His fantasy floor is low, and his upside is modest in a run-heavy offense.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Limited in walk-through session

    Watkins was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday's walk-through practice due to a knee injury. Watkins again played more than half of the Eagles' offensive snaps in last week's 27-17 win over Washington, but his role in the passing attack was fairly muted, as he finished with two catches for 15 yards on four targets. Though he's banged up coming out of that Week 17 contest, Watkins should be ready to play in Saturday's regular-season finale versus the Cowboys if he's able to maintain limited participation or upgrade to full activity in practices Wednesday and Thursday.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Two catches in win

    Watkins caught two of his four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Football Team. Watkins finished third among Eagles pass catchers with four targets but wasn't able to convert that into much yardage. While the 23-year-old remains a tertiary option in the passing game, he may be in line for more work in Week 18 if the Eagles opt to bench any of their top players in what is now a meaningless game in terms of the standings.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Efficient with three catches

    Watkins secured all three targets for 43 yards in the Eagles' 34-10 win over the Giants on Sunday. Watkins checked in second behind DeVonta Smith in receptions and receiving yardage, and while his perfect catch rate was a highlight, he did get whistled for holding on what would have been a Dallas Goedert touchdown grab early in the third quarter. The speedy second-year wideout has multiple receptions in all but one game this season, but he hasn't topped four catches in any one contest. Watkins lines up for a favorable matchup on paper against a suspect Washington secondary in Week 17.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Limited to two catches

    Watkins secured both targets for 14 yards in the Eagles' 27-17 win over Washington on Tuesday night. The speedster was able to clear COVID-19 protocols approximately 48 hours prior to kickoff, but his overall impact on the game was minimal. Watkins has had some serviceable performances this season as a deep threat, yet the boom-or-bust nature of his production makes him a particularly speculative play at this juncture of the fantasy calendar.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Comes off COVID-19 list

    The Eagles reinstated Watkins from the reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday. Philadelphia never revealed whether Watkins' placement on the list Monday was the result of a positive test of the virus, but the NFL's decision to postpone the Eagles' originally scheduled game for Sunday back to Tuesday due to COVID-19-related concerns within the Washington organization ultimately provided the receiver with enough time to clear the necessary protocols. Though he didn't have the benefit of practicing this week, Watkins should continue to hold down a regular role in three-receiver sets for the Eagles. He's played no fewer than 70 percent of the offensive snaps in any game since Week 5.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Eagles-Washington moved to Tuesday

    Watkins and the Eagles will no longer play Washington on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Philadelphia has thus far avoided a team-wide outbreak of the virus, though Watkins is the lone player on the roster currently residing on the COVID-19 list. The Eagles haven't indicated where Watkins stands in his bid to return from the list, but the two-day delay for the Week 15 game could be enough time for him to gain clearance. If Watkins is ultimately unable to play Tuesday, the Eagles would likely turn to Jalen Reagor, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward to pick up reps alongside No. 1 receiver DeVonta Smith.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Five targets in defeat

    Watkins caught two of his five targets for 23 yards and rushed once for three yards in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Giants. A week after putting up a goose egg on a season-low target count of one, Watkins was back up to a more standard workload Sunday. Unfortunately, it also translated to a fairly customary level of production, as the 23-year-old hasn't registered more than 33 yards in any of his past five games. He still played eight more snaps than Jalen Reagor's 45, however.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Doesn't factor into win

    Watkins did not catch his only target in Sunday's 40-29 win over the Saints. A week after setting a season high in catches, Watkins saw a season low in both receptions and targets. While he still played more than Jalen Reagor, neither wideout is likely to be able to produce consistently in what is increasingly a run-first offense in Philadelphia.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Logs season high in catches

    Watkins caught four of his six targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Broncos. Watkins saw more targets in this one than he had since Week 4, perhaps because Dallas Goedert (head) left with a possible concussion. The Southern Miss product still put up a lackluster yardage total, however, and has topped 50 yards just once this season -- back in Week 2. He could be in line for greater production if Goedert is forced to miss any time.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Two more catches in loss

    Watkins caught two of his three targets for nine yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chargers. For the second straight game, the Eagles attempted fewer than 20 passes, with DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert each seeing six. That left mere scraps for Watkins, the ostensible third receiving option on the team. While he continued his streak of at least a pair of catches in every game this season, the nine yards were his fewest of the year.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Hauls in both targets

    Watkins caught each of his two targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 44-6 win over the Lions. Watkins has two or three catches in every game this season and continued that streak Sunday. He may see increased attention if Jalen Reagor (ankle) needs to miss time, however.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Three catches in win

    Watkins caught all three of his targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers. The 23-year-old continues to outproduce Jalen Reagor and even out-snapped him for the first time this season 52-43. Watkins has also seen a red-zone target in each of the past two weeks, while Reagor has none at all this year. Watkins is still tough to rely on, however, because he has only one game all season with more than three targets.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Upgrades to full activity

    Watkins (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Watkins looks to be in the clear for Sunday's game at Carolina after he took every rep during Thursday's session after being listed as a limited participant a day earlier. The second-year player has been a steady complementary presence in the Eagles' Jalen Hurts-led passing attack, totaling 10 receptions for 219 yards on 14 targets through the team's first four contests.

  • Eagles' Quez Watkins: Seven targets in loss

    Watkins caught three of his seven targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 42-30 loss to the Chiefs. The 2020 sixth-round pick doubled his target total for the season in the game, although he didn't have much to show for it at the end of the day. Still, he played 43 snaps (58 percent), just nine fewer than Jalen Reagor, who was pretty much invisible the whole contest. Through four games, Watkins has outproduced the Eagles' first-rounder from the same draft class as him, with Watkins delivering a 10-219 line compared to Reagor's 14-116.
