Sun, 25 Jun 2017 17:52:05 -0700

Bills | Sammy Watkins involved in team drills

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 11:56:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) participated in team drills at minicamp Tuesday, June 13. Head coach Sean McDermott said Watkins has responded well to a bigger workload and that workload will continue to be increased as long as Watkins can handle it.

Fantasy Tip: At this rate, it looks like Watkins will be able to make a full recovery in time for the regular season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. He has a reputation for being injury prone, though, after missing 11 games the last two seasons. A Buffalo's No. 1 receiver, Watkins can be drafted as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.

Bills | Sammy Watkins out of action

Thu, 18 May 2017 08:30:20 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not participating in the organized team activities Thursday, May 18.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has shown equal ability on the field as his propensity for injury. His 60-1,047-9 campaign in 2015 over 13 games had him as a high-end WR2 last year before another foot injury. He'll enter 2017 as a high-risk WR2 that could fall into the WR3 area and handsomely reward you.

Bills | Sammy Watkins' extension not a priority

Fri, 05 May 2017 09:03:24 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is not expected to receive an extension offer during the season, according to the Buffalo News's Vic Carucci, who believes new head coach Sean McDermott's big-picture vision for the roster doesn't include a huge investment in a receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has proven to be a dominant force when he can stay on the field but playing 21 of a possible 32 games over the last two seasons isn't helping his cause. Buffalo recently declined his fifth-year team option, so it is beginning to look like they'll be one of the more sought-after free agents in 2018. Almost regardless of where he might land, he should be no worse than a fantasy WR2 this year and beyond.

Bills | No option for Sammy Watkins

Tue, 02 May 2017 12:25:11 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins will not have his fifth-year option picked up, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This move, or lack of a move, makes sense for the Bills. Watkins is easily Buffalo's best receiver, but he has begun a track record of not being able to stay on the field after missing 11 total games the last two years. Watkins is a high-risk, high-reward pick and should be drafted as a low-end WR2.

Bills | Sammy Watkins' option may not be picked up

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 18:32:41 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins' (foot) fifth-year option likely will not be picked up before the May 2 deadline, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is recovering from foot surgery and has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons. He should continue to be the Bills' No. 1 receiver in 2017 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Bills | BUF might not pick up Sammy Watkins' option

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 07:04:29 -0700

The Buffalo Bills have not yet determined if they will pick up the fifth-year option on WR Sammy Watkins' rookie contract but the matter will be discussed internally over the next few weeks, according to a source. He is currently under contract for one more season with a salary cap hit of $6.343 million but if the option is picked up, Watkins would cost the team approximately $13 million against the cap in 2018. A decision will be made by May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Although it appears likely that the club will pick up Watkins' option, the matter is up for debate because of his recent injury history. He has missed 11 games over the last two seasons and is currently recovering from a second foot surgery. When healthy, Watkins should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in most fantasy formats.
