Rams | Sammy Watkins in protocol

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 05:05:40 -0700

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins (concussion) is in the concussion protocol Friday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is coming off a 6-106-2 game in Week 3 but has a couple of extra days to recover. He'd be a WR3 option against the Dallas Cowboys if he's fit to go.

Rams | Sammy Watkins has possible concussion

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 23:21:50 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins (concussion) left the team's Week 3 game against the San Francisco 49ers with about eight minutes remaining after being evaluated on the sidelines for a head injury. Watkins went to the locker room and was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't the news fantasy owners wanted to hear after Watkins enjoyed his best game of the season by far. The silver lining is that the team doesn't take the field again until Oct. 1, giving Watkins 10 days to recover. If he does, he has WR2 potential against the Cowboys. If he doesn't, Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp become interesting options.

Rams | Two scores for Sammy Watkins

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 20:58:25 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins finished with six catches on seven targets for 106 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: After two lackluster games to start the year, Watkins broke out against San Francisco. Chemistry between Watkins and Jared Goff should only improve as the season goes on, and Watkins has WR2 upside against Dallas in Week 4.

Rams | Sammy Watkins quiet in Week 2

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 21:24:57 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted two catches for just 30 yards on two targets in Week 2 against Washington.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has seven grabs for just 88 yards and he hasn't visited the end zone through two games. He is slowly getting up to speed in the team's system after coming over from the Bills late in the preseason. Eventually he'll re-emerge as a top fantasy option, but right now you can expect mediocre results until he gets up to speed.

Rams | Sammy Watkins catches all five targets

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:42:11 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught all five of his targets for 58 yards in a 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Despite joining the Rams about a month ago, Watkins already showed solid chemistry with Jared Goff. A Week 2 meeting with Washington could mean a matchup with Josh Norman, but Watkins still has enough upside to use as a WR3.

Rams | Sammy Watkins expected to play Saturday

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 18:56:58 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins is expected to play in the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders Saturday, Aug. 14, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins will need some time to learn the Rams offense, so it is not known how much playing time he will receive Saturday. Watkins probably will be the Rams' top receiver this season and should see plenty of targets. He probably should be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Rams | Sammy Watkins expects big plays

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 20:53:56 -0700

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins said he can be "that home-run guy" for the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has loads of talent, but staying healthy was already a problem, and the quarterback situation in Los Angeles is far from ideal. He should be considered a high-upside WR3 at this point.

Rams | Sammy Watkins may receive long-term deal

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 14:24:55 -0700

Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said the team is interested in signing WR Sammy Watkins to a long-term contract since he is entering the last year of his contract. The two sides have not had contract talks at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be the No. 1 receiver for the Rams this season but is still a risky option because of his injury history. He has joined another team that likes to run the ball, but he should receive a solid amount of targets in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Bills | Buffalo deals Sammy Watkins to the Rams

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 10:16:28 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was traded along with a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round selection on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills did not take advantage of their ability to pick up the fifth-year option on Watkins this spring, and it turns out it won't be a problem for them after all. Instead, they will likely move forward with rookie Zay Jones and the newly acquired Jordan Matthews as their starting receivers. Jones should now be considered a quality WR3 option in fantasy, while Matthews will likely settle in as a WR4, at least initially.

Rams | Sammy Watkins traded to LA Rams

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 10:00:18 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was traded along with a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round selection on Friday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams desperately needed a lead receiver and they will get one with the injury-prone Watkins, who will reunite with Robert Woods in Los Angeles and play the DeSean Jackson role in new head coach Sean McVay's offense. Watkins' arrival gives Jared Goff a fighting chance to be a quality fantasy quarterback as well. Watkins should still be considered no better than a high-upside WR2 given his durability issues.
