Bills | Sammy Watkins remains idle

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 08:26:24 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) is not participating in team drills Tuesday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has plenty of time to be ready for the season and is a WR2 in fantasy. He comes with some caution, though, because of the injury and his targets expected to be reduced.

Bills | Sammy Watkins likely to see fewer balls

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 09:47:15 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) will likely see a reduction from his team-leading 128 targets last season.

Fantasy Tip: His hip surgery could be a small factor, but the team simply has more weapons around him this season. Watkins is a low-end WR2 even with the reduced targets.

Bills | Sammy Watkins mentally taking reps

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 08:20:01 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) said he is mentally taking repetitions in practice while he is limited. He joins the huddle and then simulates lining up to run a pass route by going to his designated side of the formation but remaining behind the line of scrimmage. "Mentally, I've got to get my reps," Watkins said. "I'm behind. I'm not there every day with the guys running routes. So, mentally, I've got to watch the defense, the coverages, watch how things move because I'm going to be coming back soon. And everything's got to be fast and I've got to pick it up."

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is a mid-to-low WR2 in fantasy, but his recovery from hip surgery could deflate that in training camp.

Bills | Sanjay Lal talks Buffalo WRs

Tue, 19 May 2015 06:10:06 -0700

Buffalo Bills wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal discussed the team's wide receivers in great detail Monday, May 18, saying he likes the flexibility among the corps and their ability to execute on the field. Lal believes Bills WR Sammy Watkins can become a complete receiver, and he praised WR Robert Woods' ability as a route runner. Lal doesn't want to pigeonhole WR Percy Harvin as being a gadget-play receiver.

Fantasy Tip: While Lal is right about his primary receiving weapons, someone still has to get the ball into their hands from a cast of likely mediocre quarterback options. Furthermore, Buffalo has invested a tremendous amount of money into their running game and have a head coach in Rex Ryan whose mantra on offense has been "ground and pound." Temper your fantasy expectations in all formats for this tethered passing game full of explosive players.

Bills | Sammy Watkins to be full go

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 20:32:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) is able to work out in some capacity during the team's offseason program, although head coach Rex Ryan indicated Wednesday, April 15, that he doesn't expect Watkins to do many football-related activities training camp. "My understanding is Sammy is doing really well," Ryan said. "We're not going to see him out there until training camp. But he should be full go when we get to training camp."

Fantasy Tip: Watkins sounds to be progressing nicely from an offseason procedure on his hip. Thatís great news for fantasy owners in dynasty leagues. Watkins will be a low-end WR2 or solid WR3 or flex play once the season comes around, perhaps more if the Buffalo quarterback position play improves dramatically.

Bills | Sammy Watkins limited during workouts

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 15:10:04 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) was limited at the team's voluntary offseason workout Monday, April 6, after undergoing surgery on his hip earlier this offseason. He rode an exercise bike and did some warmup drills Monday.

Fantasy Tip: It's no surprise that Watkins is limited this early in offseason workouts. He's expected to be good to go for training camp this summer and the start of the regular season. Watkins has plenty of physical skills, but the uncertainty around the quarterback position in Buffalo makes Watkins better left as a WR3 with upside for more in fantasy leagues.

Bills | Sammy Watkins injury update

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 13:10:39 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) underwent surgery to repair a slight tear of the labrum in his hip, according to a source. Watkins had the surgery around the time of the Super Bowl.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins likely will not do much during offseason workouts but should be ready for training camp. He likely will be selected in the middle rounds of drafts and be a No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver for owners.

Bills | Sammy Watkins will be ready for camp

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 12:07:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) will be able to some things during offseason workouts but should be ready for the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins does not need to rush his recovery since he is the team's No. 1 receiver. He should be ready for the regular season if he does not suffer any setbacks but will have to learn a new offense. Owners could consider selecting Watkins in the middle rounds of drafts as a No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver.

Bills | No timetable for Sammy Watkins

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 10:41:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) is expected to be ready for the regular season, but there remains no timetable for his return to action after having offseason hip surgery. It's unknown if Watkins will be ready for the team's offseason program, with voluntary workouts starting April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins' hip procedure is worth keeping an eye on this offseason. He'll need to learn a new offensive system under Rex Ryan, and his recovery may prevent him from receiving much-needed repetitions. Watkins should be a low-end No. 2 or high-end No. 3 receiver, though, if he's ready for Week 1.

Bills | Sammy Watkins had hip procedure

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 08:16:53 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) had surgery to clean out his hip area early in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be ready well before the season opens, and the addition of LeSean McCoy could take some pressure off of him. He's a low-end WR2 or a high-end WR3 in traditional formats.
