The Kansas City Chiefs are clearly serious about upgrading their offense around new quarterback Patrick Mahomes II and have responded in kind by adding free agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins on a three-year, $48 million contract with a robust $30 million guaranteed. The signing comes as a bit of a surprise as the Chiefs already had a whole host of offensive weapons, namely Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill. Adding Watkins to this offense gives their new quarterback every chance to be successful, really takes advantage of his skill set (which includes an extraordinarily strong arm) and also changes the dynasty value landscape of several players. Let’s take a look at the players whose values are affected as a result of this big free agent signing.
