Bills | Big day for Sammy Watkins

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 14:11:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins hauled in nine receptions for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 7 game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins saw 14 targets in the game, and he might have been used a lot more due to his Clemson brethren, C.J. Spiller, going down to an injury. Spiller and Fred Jackson both left the game, so the Bills had to get away from the run. The injuries could be good news for Watkins' fantasy prospects going forward, if the Bills are forced into a more aerial-based offensive attack.

Bills | Sammy Watkins improving each week

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 05:50:53 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is getting better each week, according to head coach Doug Marrone. The team made a concerted effort to get him the ball in the second half of the Week 6 game. Watkins was shut out in the first half and finished with three catches for 27 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins ($5,900; 11.8%) had an off-week as he was held in check by Darrelle Revis. He has a better matchup against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 7 and is worthy of a WR3 spot on FantasyScore.

Bills | Sammy Watkins ready for Revis

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 07:53:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins said he's prepared to be shadowed by New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis in Week 6. "We actually found he's gonna be following me around the field, so I'm gonna have to be prepared for his jams," Watkins said. "He's very smart. I have to be very competitive and smart off the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Revis isn't quite the lockdown corner he was before the ACL injury, but he's still a formidable force if he shadows Watkins. Watkins ($5,900; 11.8% of your cap) is a midrange WR2 on FantasyScore this week. If nothing else, Revis' experience could challenge Watkins this weekend.

Bills | Sammy Watkins practices in full again

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 13:10:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins had four catches (nine targets) for 30 yards and his second touchdown of the year last weekend. The Detroit Lions, who the Bills play in Week 5, have been a lockdown defense so far, making Watkins an unattractive FantasyScore option. The move to Kyle Orton as the starter should knock Watkins down a few pegs, too.

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 17:12:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) was able to play in Week 3 against the San Diego Chargers, but he was limited to just two receptions and 19 yards. He was targeted eight times.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins will see better days for fantasy owners, that's for sure. He was able to make it through the entire game, which is a good sign. He is a solid WR2/3 or flex fantasy play going forward despite this game of poor production.

His value on FantasyScore will be determined by his salary each week.

Bills | Sammy Watkins to play?

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 14:59:24 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) could play in the team's final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28, though it likely wouldn't be for long.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be ready for the regular season opener and is regarded as the Bills' top receiver this year. However, he's surrounded by shoddy quarterback play and a lackluster receiving corps, which somewhat hinder his potential. He could still be worth a WR3 spot on your roster.

Bills | Sammy Watkins limited

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 19:15:43 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) did not participate in team drills during practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and he has not been cleared to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has more than enough talent to produce like a WR3 as a rookie, but he continues to miss time that he could be using to develop a rapport with EJ Manuel. Missing time in the preseason won't destroy Watkins' value, but it could lead to a slower start than previously expected.

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:22:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) returned to practice on a limited basis Tuesday, Aug. 19. Watkins said he could play in a game, but head coach Doug Marrone said he hasn't decided if Watkins will play in the team's next preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners can expect some growing pains from the rookie receiver, but the Bills traded up in the draft for Watkins for a reason. He is going to be the centerpiece of the team's passing attack, and he should only improve as he and EJ Manuel become more comfortable with each other. Draft him as a WR3 in standard formats, and don't be afraid to pull the trigger a little earlier in keeper leagues.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins made several big plays in practice Monday, July 21, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak. Watkins beat CB Leodis McKelvin deep, hauled in a pass over three defenders and caught a pass in traffic on a crossing pattern.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is showing why the Bills traded up in the draft to grab him. You should always expect a few bumps in the road with a rookie receiver, but for fantasy purposes, Watkins is a WR3 with upside.

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

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was reportedly making plays all over the field before the incident. As long as he's healthy, he'll likely be the team's No. 1 receiving option. He's currently in WR4 territory, but his stock could rise if he continues to impress.

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 18:43:37 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel went 4-for-4 on passes to WR Sammy Watkins during team drills Sunday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value of both players hinges on how well they can connect, and Sunday's results were definitely a good start. Watkins should still be drafted as a WR3 at this point, but his stock is only going to rise if he and Manuel continue to show chemistry.

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.
