Bills | Sammy Watkins shining in practice

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:46:31 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins has been able to beat CB Stephon Gilmore in practice on multiple occasions, and Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News called Watkins the August MVP.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has been slowed by minor injuries during the preseason, but the bigger concern for his fantasy value is the quarterback situation in Buffalo. He has plenty of upside, but expecting him to be more than a high-end WR3 is risky.

Bills | Playing it safe with Sammy Watkins

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 21:29:03 -0700

The Buffalo Bills are playing it safe with WR Sammy Watkins (glute), and he remained out of team drills Tuesday, Aug. 25. He was in full pads Tuesday, and worked with other players going through rehab. The team has played it safe with Watkins over the past two weeks, and held him out of the last preseason game due to his sore glute.

Fantasy Tip: The injury certainly doesn't sound serious, and the Bills are simply trying to preserve Watkins for the regular season rather than risk him during games which do not mean anything in the standings. He is a decent middle- to late-round pick for depth at wide receiver in most fantasy formats.

Bills | Several key Bills return to practice

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 12:17:03 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Fred Jackson (hamstring) and WRs Sammy Watkins (glute), Robert Woods (hip) and Marcus Easley (knee) all returned to practice Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is the biggest return for Buffalo, although Jackson and Woods are important offensive pieces as well. When healthy, Watkins can achieve WR2 production. Woods is an undervalued sleeper and should be drafted as a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5. Jackson was a PPR monster last season, but he won't see as much playing time as long as LeSean McCoy is healthy. View him as a RB4 in PPR leagues. Easley can be left on waivers.

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 09:03:20 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (glute) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins appears to have recovered from his injury and is back at practice. Watkins likely will receive the most targets among the receivers this season and could be a middle-round option in most leagues.

Bills | Sammy Watkins leaves practice

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 13:12:00 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (gluteus) left practice early Monday, Aug. 17, with gluteal tightness, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Anything related to the gluteus doesn't really seem like a serious injury, but this should still be monitored seeing as Watkins is one of Buffalo's best players. As long as he's healthy, he's a WR2 candidate.

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 16:21:36 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) stepped out of drills Wednesday, Aug. 12, and trainers were checking out his right ankle. The injury doesn't seem too serious as both Watkins and the training staff were seen smiling.

Fantasy Tip: Even though this doesn't seem serious, fantasy owners will need to monitor the situation closely, as any missed time by Watkins would affect the entire offense.

Bills | QB eyeing Sammy Watkins

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 13:53:32 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins seems to be developing a rapport with QB Matt Cassel during training camp, according to NFL Network's LaDainian Tomlinson. Tomlinson said Cassel is looking for Watkins frequently and the two seem to be on the same page.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is by far the Bill's biggest receiving threat. While he may see a lot of attention from opposing defenses, he'll also see a sizable amount of targets. View him as a WR2 in all scoring formats when healthy.
