Bills | Sammy Watkins, Chris Hogan practice

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 13:42:37 -0800

Buffalo Bills WRs Sammy Watkins (groin) and Chris Hogan (hip) both practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 20. The Bills did not actually practice Thursday, so their status is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: The New York Jets allow an average of 24.23 fantasy points to wideouts, which is great news for Watkins ($6,200) and Hogan ($3,100). More great news: The Bills will no longer play in wintry conditions in Buffalo this weekend. Both could be sneaky good plays this weekend.

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 13:49:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (groin) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19. The team did not hold a practice Wednesday, so this is an estimation.

Bills | Chris Hogan the No. 2 wideout

Fri, 14 Nov 2014 09:50:20 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Chris Hogan now has caught at least five passes in four of the team's last five games, and he has surpassed WRs Robert Woods and Mike Williams as the second option behind WR Sammy Watkins in the team's short passing game. Watkins was mostly a non-factor in Week 11 against Miami Dolphins CB Brent Grimes.

Fantasy Tip: Hogan entered Week 11 costing the minimum for wide receivers ($3,000) at FantasyScore. That figure is likely to rise for next week, but probably not all that much. With Kyle Orton's dink-and-dunk ways, Hogan should now be on your radar for a fantasy flex option.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation and check the inactive list to see if he is able to play. Watkins costs $6,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to think about spending their money on healthier options.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is averaging 78.7 receiving yards per game in three games since QB Kyle Orton became the starter compared to 49.3 yards per game in the team's first four games.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins could be in for another solid game in Week 8 when the Bills face the makeshift secondary of the New York Jets. He will take up 12.6% of the cap ($6,300) at FantasyScore, and Watkins is worth starting.

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.

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.
