Rams | Sammy Watkins held in check

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:39:13 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted three grabs for 36 yards on four targets in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: The three grabs tied his most since Week 3 when he had his best outing of the season with six receptions. Watkins hasn't been much of a factor in Los Angeles, certainly not nearly as quick to fit in as Robert Woods, but he did have two scores in the past two weekends. He remains more of a WR4 or flex option in deeper fantasy leagues at this point. The Rams host the Saints in Week 12.

Rams | Sammy Watkins scores again

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:10:15 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught two passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 33-7 win over the Houston Texans in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has now scored in back-to-back games, but he remains a touchdown-or-bust option. He simply doesn't have the volume to be trusted as a weekly starter.

Rams | Sammy Watkins makes most of only catch

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 13:34:38 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught one pass for 67 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins reached the end zone for the first time in five games but was only targeted two times during the game. He is a risky option for owners because he has at least 60 yards in only two games this season but his big-play potential makes him valuable in fantasy leagues.

Rams | Three grabs for Sammy Watkins

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 17:21:42 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted three catches for 42 yards on five targets in Week 7 against the Arizona Cardinals in London.

Fantasy Tip: That isn't a lot of production, but it's his second-highest yardage total since Week 1. He no longer warrants fantasy consideration outside of the deepest of leagues heading into Week 9.

Rams | Sammy Watkins likely to have shadow

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 06:10:45 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins is likely to be shadowed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has six targets, two catches and 28 yards over the last three games, and he may need to be benched for this matchup. He is an interesting buy-low option on the trade market, though.

Rams | Sammy Watkins confused about recent role?

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 09:40:03 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WRs Sammy Watkins was held without a reception on four targets in Week 6 and has one catch on six targets for 17 yards over his past two games. Watkins expressed his displeasure on social media by saying, "Something (has to) be going on," prompting a discussion with head coach Sean McVay on Monday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Tip: For what it's worth, McVay doesn't believe the last two weeks are "indicative of his production for the rest of the season." It would not be surprising if Watkins got the squeaky-wheel treatment soon, but it may not be a good idea against one of the most difficult schedules for any receiver going forward. Over the next three games, he will likely see Jalen Ramsey, Patrick Peterson and Janoris Jenkins in primary coverage, meaning he should be on fantasy benches.

Rams | Sammy Watkins back at practice

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 16:45:21 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins (illness) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was held in check last week but will continue to be a top target for the Rams in the passing game. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense in Week 5 but could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in some leagues.

Rams | Sammy Watkins sits out

Wed, 04 Oct 2017 16:57:45 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should recover from the illness before the team's Week 5 game, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is coming off a disappointing Week 4 performance but is still one of the top targets in the passing game. He will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense but should still be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for owners.

Rams | Sammy Watkins limited to one catch

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 17:29:43 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins managed just one catch for 17 yards on two targets in Week 4 against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was terribly disappointing after his 106 yards and two touchdowns last weekend. He'll look to rebound in Week 5, but he faces a tough matchup with the Seattle Seahawks coming to town.
