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 on track

Mon, 03 Apr 2017 09:49:18 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) has had no setbacks and looks good, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has been dogged by injuries in his three-year career. He's probably still a low-end WR2 in fantasy, but the health risk is very real.

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.

Bills | Sammy Watkins on schedule

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 10:04:15 -0800

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

Fantasy Tip: Watkins underwent a second operation on his foot after the season and probably will not do much until training camp begins. He will be the Bills' No. 1 receiver in 2017 and probably should be considered a No. 3 option for fantasy owners because of his injury history.

Bills | Robert Woods happy with role

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.

Fantasy Tip: Woods could sign elsewhere in the offseason, but he is likely to be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver wherever he ends up. Heading into 2017, he projects as a WR4 for fantasy purposes.

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 15:01:35 -0800

Bills | Sammy Watkins opts for surgery

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 19:34:22 -0800

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot, hip) will have foot surgery later this week, but it is not expected to hamper his 2017 season.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins should be okay for summer workouts, if not earlier, and assuming the quarterback situation is stable in Buffalo then Watkins could be a decent WR2 performer.

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.
