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.

Bills | Sammy Watkins busy in preseason opener

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 17:26:19 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was targeted on each of Tyrod Taylor's first four pass attempts and finished with four catches for 39 yards in in the team's preseason opener versus the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, Aug. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, we can Watkins' ADP to skyrocket over the next week. Watkins' ability has never been in question, but his ability to stay on the field has. He has always been capable of being a fantasy WR1, but owners need to remember he has played 21 of 32 games over the last two seasons due to foot injuries. Owners need to understand the risk he comes with before using a third-round selection on him in drafts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins to play a quarter

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 06:37:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) will play about a quarter in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 10, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins turned his ankle over the weekend, but it's just another strand in a string of injuries. He has WR2 potential, but he can't be trusted as more than a WR3 in fantasy.

Bills | Sammy Watkins practices

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 14:13:46 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 7, and appeared to be a full participant.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has dealt with injuries in the past but it appears that the one he suffered this weekend is minor. He has been a productive player when he is healthy and should be the No. 1 receiver for the Bills in 2017. Owners in most leagues can consider him a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

Bills | Sammy Watkins leaves practice early

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 13:26:31 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) left practice early Sunday, Aug. 6, after he suffered an ankle injury. Watkins said he believes he will be able to return to practice Monday, Aug. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Watkins suffered a minor injury, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 430 yards and two touchdowns in 2016 because of injury but will be the team's No. 1 receiver this season. Watkins probably can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

Bills | Sammy Watkins fully healthy

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 07:16:43 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said his surgically repaired left foot is fully healthy. "My job is really to get back in shape and be out there with the guys," Watkins said. "I don't want to hear no more about the foot. The foot is fine. I'm healed." He'll be on a fluctuating repetition count during training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has WR1 talent, but he has been a walking injury report throughout his career. Give credit to him for playing through it until last season, but this is a prove-it year for him. He's a WR2 with significant risk and reward.
