Rams | Sammy Watkins scores in Week 14

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 20:55:53 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins finished with three receptions for 21 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has scored in three consecutive games. While he hasn't done much in terms of yardage, he is a solid WR4 in deeper PPR formats since he has three or more grabs in each of the past four outings, too.

Rams | Sammy Watkins finds end zone again

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 20:53:28 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted three grabs for 38 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 13 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has touchdown receptions in four of the past five outings. Despite the frequent scores his catch totals and yardage make him more of a WR4 across more fantasy formats.

Rams | Sammy Watkins draws nine targets

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 20:06:25 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught four passes on nine targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in a 26-20 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has been a touchdown-dependent flex play since joining the Rams, but with Robert Woods nursing a shoulder injury, Watkins took advantage. Until Woods returns, Watkins is a lot easier to trust as a fantasy starter.

Rams | Saints' secondary likely to be shorthanded

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 12:40:23 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WRs Sammy Watkins and Cooper Kupp could be facing a pair of backup cornerbacks in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints, as starting CBs Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and Ken Crawley abdomen) (were not at practice Friday, Nov. 24.

Fantasy Tip: This would have been the best news for Robert Woods, but he is set to miss a couple of weeks with a shoulder injury. With Woods out and Lattimore not around to shadow Watkins, the former Buffalo Bill could use this opportunity to get him involved in the offense. Kupp was Jared Goff's most trusted option earlier in the year, so he could also have a big day.

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.
