Bills | Sammy Watkins listed as probable

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 11:27:44 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 5, and is listed as probable for Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be able to play this week but will be facing a solid Denver Broncos defense. Watkins has a price of $5,800 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to lower their expectations if they use him because of his matchup.

Bills | Three Bills WRs are limited

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 13:16:14 -0800

Buffalo Bills WRs Chris Hogan (hamstring), Sammy Watkins (hip) and Robert Woods (ankle) were all limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 4.

Fantasy Tip: All three have a good chance of suiting up against the Denver Broncos. Hogan ($3,100) is the cheapest of the three as a short-area target for Kyle Orton. Denver's cornerbacks are pretty solid, but could be left one-on-one often against Watkins ($5,700) and Woods ($3,600). If Buffalo falls behind early and is forced to the air often, all three should benefit at FantasyScore.

Bills | Sammy Watkins hitting rookie wall?

Thu, 04 Dec 2014 09:40:25 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins has declined in production of late, and he's trying to fight through the rookie wall late in his first season in the NFL. Watkins was named the league's Offensive Rookie of the Month in October, but he had just 13 catches for 105 yards in a four-game stretch in November. "Later in the year, defenders read your body language, how you come off the ball," Watkins said. "There's some things I got to switch up. That comes with just changing your game up. If you do the same thing for nine or 10 weeks, people can figure out how you do things." Watkins has also been drawing the opposing team's top cornerback, and last week it was Cleveland Browns CB Joe Haden. It doesn't figure to get any easier for Watkins this weekend, either as the Denver Broncos boast two of the best cornerback tandems in CBs Aqib Talib and Chris Harris Jr. Watkins has also been bothered by a hip injury recently and has dealt with groin problems in the last month. Watkins also admits to battling the mental demands of the NFL as the season wares on.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins will cost $5,700 as he faces the Broncos this week at FantasyScore. Watkins faces another stiff test this weekend, but he could outperform his cost if he's left in single coverage often and the Bills are forced to throw to play catch-up.

Bills | Sammy Watkins practicing

Wed, 03 Dec 2014 09:42:11 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) is participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins appears to be on track to play in Week 14 despite his injury. Watkins has struggled over the last four weeks with 35 yards being his highest receiving total in that span. Watkins will be facing an above average Denver Broncos defense and his $5,700 price tag on FantasyScore may be too expensive for some owners.

Bills | Sammy Watkins has hip injury

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 13:06:15 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) suffered a hip injury in Week 13, and the severity of the injury is not known. Watkins was able to play every snap during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if Watkins has to miss any time because of the injury. Watkins has not posted good numbers over the last several games but will be facing a Denver Broncos pass defense that has struggled against wide receivers over the past month. Watkins could be a risky option because of the injury but also has the potential of having a productive game if he is active.

Bills | Sammy Watkins, Chris Hogan practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:42:37 -0800

Buffalo Bills WRs Sammy Watkins (groin) and Chris Hogan (hip) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so their status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: The New York Jets allow an average of 24.23 fantasy points to wideouts, which is great news for Watkins ($6,200) and Hogan ($3,100). More great news: The Bills will no longer play in wintry conditions in Buffalo this weekend. Both could be sneaky good plays this weekend.

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:49:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. The team did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be able to play in Week 12 but may have to deal with rough weather conditions during the game. Watkins costs $6,200 on FantasyScore, which may be too expensive for some owners.

Bills | Chris Hogan the No. 2 wideout

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 09:50:20 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Chris Hogan now has caught at least five passes in four of the team's last five games, and he has surpassed WRs Robert Woods and Mike Williams as the second option behind WR Sammy Watkins in the team's short passing game. Watkins was mostly a non-factor in Week 11 against Miami Dolphins CB Brent Grimes.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan entered Week 11 costing the minimum for wide receivers ($3,000) at FantasyScore. That figure is likely to rise for next week, but probably not all that much. With Kyle Orton's dink-and-dunk ways, Hogan should now be on your radar for a fantasy flex option.

Bills | Sammy Watkins should play in Week 11

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 13:39:27 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12, and is listed as probable for Week 11.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be fine for Week 11 and has performed well over the past several weeks. Watkins has a price of $6,500 on FantasyScore, but he has a tough matchup against the Miami Dolphins.
