Rams | Los Angeles wants Sammy Watkins back

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 09:13:21 -0800

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins could be given a franchise tag or transition tag this offseason if he and the Rams can't agree on a long-term deal. General manager Les Snead said the Rams have contacted Watkins' agent to discuss contract negotiations.

Fantasy Tip: Los Angeles had the most improved offense last season. Watkins played his part in that effort after being acquired from the Buffalo Bills, but his numbers didn't jump off the page. If retained, Watkins has WR2 upside but is a more reasonable WR3 draftee.

Rams | Sammy Watkins could be tagged

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 10:24:15 -0800

Los Angeles Rams impending free-agent WR Sammy Watkins may be given the franchise tag or a transition tag this offseason. The franchise tag would cost $16.063 million and a transition tag would cost $13.995 million. The NFL salary cap is expected to be $178.1 million in 2018.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins' first year with Los Angeles was mostly of the ho-hum variety, but his eight touchdowns saved his fantasy season. That many touchdowns on just 39 receptions is difficult to sustain, though, and Watkins is no more than a WR3 candidate.

Rams | Sammy Watkins capable of greater role in LA

Wed, 10 Jan 2018 17:54:58 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins believes he would "most definitely" have a greater role in the offense if given another year to work with QB Jared Goff. "I just think he got on a roll with the guys that he had during OTAs, and once a guy is used to throwing it to someone else, he throws to his guys," he said. "It's just part of the game where you need more time, or maybe another year." Watkins just completed his rookie deal and may be tagged this offseason to remain with the club.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Watkins will stay with the Rams, though it seems like there's a good chance of that happening considering how much the club gave up to acquire him in the first place. While he did manage eight touchdowns, the former Bill also had just 593 receiving yards, but he does have a point that a full offseason with Goff could do some good for both. Watkins would be in the WR3 conversation for 2018 if he continues his career in Los Angeles.

Rams | Sammy Watkins open to returning to LA

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 22:47:14 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, said that it "would be a pleasure to come back." He also mentioned that "it's a business" and that he's "looking forward to talking to the coach" and seeing where his future is at.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was a late addition to the Rams prior to the regular season, with expectations of being the club's No. 1 wide-out, but instead, the former Buffalo Bill ended up finishing fourth on the team in receptions (39) and receiving yards (593). His ceiling is far higher than that, though, and with quarterback Jared Goff in line for a solid third campaign next year, Watkins will have WR3 potential if fully utilized.

Rams | One catch for Sammy Watkins

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 20:37:47 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught one pass on four targets for 23 yards in a 26-13 loss to the Atlanta Falcons Saturday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was a touchdown-dependent option all season, so it was no surprise to see him fall flat. The big-play ability is still there, but he will have a hard time making a consistent fantasy impact as the No. 4 option in the passing attack.

Rams | Top wideouts to play sparingly?

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 21:53:01 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WRs Cooper Kupp (knee), Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins are unlikely to see much action in Week 17, according to head coach Sean McVay.

Fantasy Tip: Of that group, Kupp is probably the only one that was on fantasy radars at this point with Watkins having not topped 40 yards in a game since Nov. 26 and Woods working his way back from injury. Still, this news should serve reinforce the fact that none of them should be in your lineup this Sunday.

Rams | Sammy Watkins back in end zone

Sun, 24 Dec 2017 14:48:29 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins finished with three grabs for 30 yards and a touchdown on seven targets in the Week 16 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins hasn't had huge yardage totals lately, but he has visited the end zone in four of his past five games, and six of the past eight. He remains a solid WR4 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 17.

Rams | Two grabs for Sammy Watkins

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 20:57:12 -0800

Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught two passes for 14 yards in a 42-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

Fantasy Tip: The lopsided nature of this game no doubt hurt Watkins, but now that Robert Woods is back, Watkins will be a risky, touchdown-dependent option over the final two games.

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.
