Quez Watkins

23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Selected in the sixth round of the 2020 Draft, Watkins entered his rookie year buried on the depth chart, started the season on IR and didn't draw his first target until Week 14. He'll begin his second campaign in a similar situation, with an uphill battle for playing time and relevance. Read Past Outlooks

Could be No. 2 receiver next year
WRPhiladelphia Eagles
January 19, 2022
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.
ANALYSIS
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.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Watkins was the third and final speedy receiver the Eagles nabbed in the draft. His 4.35 40-yard dash placed him second among wide receivers at the NFL Combine. However, with seven other receivers currently ahead of him on the depth chart, it isn't likely the 21-year-old will make an early impact on offense in his first pro season. Given his shiftiness with the ball in his hands, however, he does have a shot to earn a spot as a returner and see some gadget plays if injuries strike any of the Philadelphia receivers.
