Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) returned to practice on a limited basis Tuesday, Aug. 19. Watkins said he could play in a game, but head coach Doug Marrone said he hasn't decided if Watkins will play in the team's next preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners can expect some growing pains from the rookie receiver, but the Bills traded up in the draft for Watkins for a reason. He is going to be the centerpiece of the team's passing attack, and he should only improve as he and EJ Manuel become more comfortable with each other. Draft him as a WR3 in standard formats, and don't be afraid to pull the trigger a little earlier in keeper leagues.
