Bills | Sammy Watkins on crutches

Tue, 24 May 2016 09:51:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was seen on crutches with his left foot in a boot during organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. General manager Doug Whaley said Watkins is expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: There's no guarantee yet that Watkins will be good to go for Week 1, so we'll be keeping close tabs on his recovery up through training camp. As Buffalo's No. 1 receiver, Watkins' fantasy value takes a slight hit with the uncertainty, and he could come at a nice value in drafts. Marquise Goodwin and Robert Woods could be relied on more to open the season if Watkins is limited at all. Charles Clay could also benefit in the passing game.

Bills | Sammy Watkins expected for opener

Tue, 24 May 2016 06:52:34 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to be ready for Week 1, but the team doesn't have a target date for his return set, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins took another step forward with a 60-1,047-9 season last year, but he continues to have nagging injuries. He's a high-risk, high-reward receiver in the WR2 mix.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants healthy Sammy Watkins

Sat, 21 May 2016 20:29:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he is not worried about the injury to WR Sammy Watkins (foot) hurting their chemistry with each other. "We've been talking together and getting on the same page," Taylor said. "We want on the field work obviously, but we'll get that when the time comes. The main thing is that he gets healthy so he can play at the level that we know he's capable of playing at."

Fantasy Tip: As long as Watkins' recovery goes as planned, he should be a strong WR2 in 2016. Taylor should be a solid QB2, and he could be a sneaky starter in daily formats against the right matchups.

Bills | Sammy Watkins should miss preseason

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:20:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not expected to play in the preseason after undergoing foot surgery three weeks ago.

Fantasy Tip: This has turned into somewhat of a serious development for the Bills. Watkins is their main receiving threat. If his recovery time trickles into the regular season, then Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin would be the main beneficiaries, with Charles Clay still serving as Tyrod Taylor's safety blanket. Keep tabs on Watkins' recovery as the offseason continues, but take this injury and his previous injury history into consideration during fantasy drafts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins has broken bone

Mon, 16 May 2016 13:35:03 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) suffered a broken small bone in his foot and had a screw inserted, according to a source. He should still be ready for training camp, however.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was really the Bills' only legitimate receiving threat last year, maybe aside from TE Charles Clay. He's one of the better deep threats in the league and worth selecting as a WR2 if there aren't any setbacks and if he's fully healthy when the season starts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins arrives at workouts

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 07:24:38 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins arrived at offseason workouts Wednesday, April 20, after attending a youth camp the team was aware he was attending.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins took a small step forward with a 60-1,047-9 season despite missing three games. He could be pegged for a big third season in 2016 if he can stave off the leg injuries that have dogged him. He's a good WR2 option in fantasy.

Bills | Sammy Watkins not present Monday

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 16:17:04 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was not present for offseason workouts Monday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should not be worried about Watkins not being present since they are only voluntary workouts. He finished 2015 with 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns and should be a middle-round option in most fantasy drafts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins efficient in 2015

Wed, 20 Jan 2016 09:59:09 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins caught passes on 17.3% of the routes that he ran this season, which was the highest reception-to-routes-run rate for a Bills receiver since ESPN started tracking the statistic in 2007. Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (22.6%) led receivers this season in the category. Watkins ranked 13th among qualifying receivers.

Fantasy Tip: At one point in the season, Watkins had to complain in order to have more passes come his way. He finished the year with 60 catches (95 targets) for 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns. The emergence of Tyrod Taylor at quarterback helped Watkin's cause, and he should be a solid WR2 heading into next season.

Jets | Darrelle Revis struggles in finale

Tue, 05 Jan 2016 16:36:28 -0800

New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis played press coverage against Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins just three or four times in a Week 17 loss after playing mostly press coverage against Watkins and limiting him to just three catches for 14 yards in an earlier meeting this year. Watkins was targeted 15 times in Week 17 and was covered by Revis eight of those times, according to Pro Football Focus. Watkins had five catches for 80 yards against Revis. Revis essentially was turned into a zone cornerback in the matchup with Watkins because of the Jets fear that Watkins would beat them deep.

Bills | Sammy Watkins finishes season strong

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 15:00:15 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins caught 11 passes for 136 yards against the New York Jets in Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins posted at least 100 yards in four of his final six games and finished the season with 911 yards and nine touchdowns. Watkins will continue to be the team's top option in their passing game and could be a middle-round option in most leagues.
