Ask the Expert Question of the Week: Pick a player who will return from IR that you like.

Some big names have either recently returned from IR (Sammy Watkins) or may before the end of the season (Ameer Abdullah, Adrian Peterson, C.J. Anderson etc.). Pick one returning player (if any) that you believe will have fantasy value the rest of the way, and say why. 

I have slowly added Sammy Watkins wherever I can stash him. He played in about 50% of the snaps this week (went 3-80) and I expect bigger and better things for him (especially with Robert Woods faltering health wise late in the season). My money is on the sure thing-Watkins is playing versus the lottery ticket of some of the RBs who might make it back by week 15 or 16. Even if AP or CJ Anderson does make it back for a week 16 appearance-Are you really going to trust them with a roster spot their first week back? Not me. Go with Watkins and bet on his improvement in targets and catches. 

ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.
