Bills | Sammy Watkins fine after practice scare

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins returned to practice Monday, July 21, after leaving with an apparent forehead injury.

Bills | Sammy Watkins struggling with drops, mental game

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 11:05:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Sammy Watkins is still learning the mental aspects of football, according to a source, such as lining up after the huddle and reading defenses. Teammates reportedly had to show Watkins where to go at times. Additionally, the final week of practice was said to be his worst as far as drops are concerned.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins may still be the team's best receiver in terms of talent. He's only a rookie so it will take some time for him to get used to the offense and playing at the professional level. At this point, it's best to draft Watkins as a WR3 in standard leagues.

Bills | Nathaniel Hackett likes the direction of the offense

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 19:44:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills offensive-coordinator Nathaniel Hackett believes the offense is improving on the up-tempo style from last year. Hackett pointed to the development of QB EJ Manuel and the addition of WR Sammy Watkins among the reasons for the improvement.

Fantasy Tip: Ideally, an up-tempo offense means more plays and more opportunities for the team's main weapons. However, Manuel and company likely have a long way to go before establishing week-to-week consistency, and the weather in Buffalo won't help the cause.
