Chiefs wide receiver Sammy Watkins had perhaps his most productive week of practice, perhaps an indication he’s ready to bust from the slump that leaves him without a catch through two preseason games. “As you see in practice, (QB Patrick Mahomes) threw some great balls, I caught great balls,’’ Watkins said. “Hopefully that carries over in the game. I know a lot of people are speculating, ‘Oh, he’s not getting the targets’ but . . . there are a lot of other things I’ve got to learn in the offense (and) get used to. That’s what coach is doing a great job of letting me do . . . If other guys are getting open (and) catching balls, that’s great for us . . . At the end of the day if I’m doing my job and running my routes and helping this team move the chains, that’s my job.’’

Fantasy Football

The ball at Chiefs training camp has gone more to one starting wide receiver, Tyreek Hill, than the other, Sammy Watkins. In the preseason opener last week, Hill caught two passes and Watkins none even though Watkins was in the game for nine snaps, compared to eight for Hill. But offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said these weren’t necessarily signs that Hill would catch more passes than Watkins during the regular season. It’s more an indication, he said, that QB Patrick Mahomes and Watkins are still getting comfortable with one another. “Camp is all about finding your rhythm, making sure we get in sync together,’’ Bieniemy said. “Part of that process is making sure we’re spending the right amount of time with each other but also giving those two an opportunity to link up a little bit more. When it’s all said and done, Sammy is doing a heck of a job. He’s doing a great job. He’s accepted the challenge because we’re not just playing him at one pos. He’s accepted the challenge of learning all three across the board. We want versatile football players.’’
