Bills | BUF might not pick up Sammy Watkins' option

Sat, 15 Apr 2017 07:04:29 -0700

The Buffalo Bills have not yet determined if they will pick up the fifth-year option on WR Sammy Watkins' rookie contract but the matter will be discussed internally over the next few weeks, according to a source. He is currently under contract for one more season with a salary cap hit of $6.343 million but if the option is picked up, Watkins would cost the team approximately $13 million against the cap in 2018. A decision will be made by May 2.

Fantasy Tip: Although it appears likely that the club will pick up Watkins' option, the matter is up for debate because of his recent injury history. He has missed 11 games over the last two seasons and is currently recovering from a second foot surgery. When healthy, Watkins should be viewed as a low-end WR2 or high-end WR3 in most fantasy formats.

Bills | Sammy Watkins still on schedule

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 16:21:52 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) has not had any setbacks in his rehabilitation from offseason foot surgery, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is perennially a risky proposition at wide receiver in the fantasy realm. He has not played a full season since his rookie year in 2014 and has missed 11 games over the last two seasons. The WR1 potential is obvious, especially with Tyrod Taylor, but Watkins has no finished higher than WR15 in his three years in the NFL. He is a low-end WR2 consideration even with the positive news.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is on schedule in his recovery from offseason foot surgery, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 20:29:19 -0800

Buffalo Bills impending free-agent WR Robert Woods said he would have no problem continuing to serve as the No. 2 option behind WR Sammy Watkins in Buffalo's passing attack.

Bills | Sammy Watkins leaning against surgery

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 07:43:41 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot, hip) said he's leaning against having another surgery on his troublesome left foot. Watkins also left the Week 17 game due to a hip injury, but he said that will be fine.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has been dogged by injuries in his first three seasons. If he avoids surgery, this will be his first full offseason without one. Watkins' fantasy stock will depend a lot on who the quarterback is next season, but he's at least a low-end WR2 possibility.

That being said, he should still see a decent number of targets and makes a solid WR3 option in all fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be able to suit up for the final week of the season, but how much he plays remains to be seen.

Bills | Buffalo WR duo 'ready to roll'

Fri, 09 Dec 2016 10:29:42 -0800

Buffalo Bills WRs Sammy Watkins (foot) and Robert Woods (knee) will be "ready to roll" in Week 14 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are listed as questionable for this weekend, but it appears Buffalo will have its starting receivers on the field at the same time for the first time since Week 2. It is worth noting Pittsburgh has allowed only seven touchdowns to receivers this season - second-fewest in the league - and the Bills' passing game can generally support only one fantasy-viable receiver. Consider Watkins a WR3 this weekend and Woods a WR4.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is "going to play" in Week 13 against the Oakland Raiders, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins will be listed as questionable on the injury report and certainly at risk to aggravate the injury during the game, but the fact he was able to hang three catches for 80 yards on only 25 snaps last week against a good Jacksonville Jaguars secondary is proof he doesn't need a lot of playing time to be useful in fantasy. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward WR2 this weekend.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 1, and head coach Rex Ryan said he expects Watkins to play barring a setback. Offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn said Watkins received only three snaps during practice and is not 100 percent at this point. Lynn said he believes Watkins still has a broken bone in his foot but it is a pain tolerance situation.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins caught all three of his targets in Week 12 and finished for 80 yards. He probably will continue to receive limited playing time but should still be one of the main targets in the passing game. Watkins can be a No. 3 receiver for owners if he is active.

Fantasy Tip: This move is likely precautionary, but owners will need to check on Watkins' status later in the week to see if he is in any danger of missing the team's Week 13 game. Watkins posted solid numbers in his first game back in two months and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option if he is active.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) returned to the lineup in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he finished with three catches for 80 yards on his three targets, including one grab for 62 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was seeing his first action since Week 2. If he is available off the waiver wire Watkins is worth scooping up, as he can be a big-time play marker when healthy. Unfortunately, staying healthy has been a big-time issue for Watkins.

Bills | Sammy Watkins to start in Week 12

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will start Week 12's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The amount of playing time he receives will depend on how his foot feels.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Rex Ryan said Watkins would receive a lighter workload than normal in his first action since Week 2, so he should be viewed as a risky option in all formats. Seasonal owners should continue to stash Watkins on their rosters since he is likely to be a factor once the fantasy playoffs get underway.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins participated in practice on a limited basis throughout the week and is expected to play in Week 12's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, although head coach Rex Ryan said he will not see his regular workload. Owners should keep him benched this week but he should be a factor when the fantasy playoffs get underway.
