Bills | Sammy Watkins rehabbing with team

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 08:32:57 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will remain in Buffalo, N.Y., most of the summer to remain close to the medical staff to ensure he stays on track to return for training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins is a legit receiver, but his cluster of leg injuries is starting to become concerning. If he's back for training camp and nothing else pops up, he's a solid WR2 in fantasy.

Bills | Sammy Watkins hopes to remove boot soon

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 10:44:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said he hopes to remove his walking boot Thursday, June 2. Watkins is not sure how he suffered the stress fracture in his foot.

Fantasy Tip: There is no official timetable for Watkins, but he hopes to be ready for Week 1. He likely will not return to practice until sometime during training camp, which makes him a risky option in drafts. He should be considered a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 receiver when he is healthy.

Bills | No timetable for Sammy Watkins

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:47:42 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said he hopes to be ready for the start of the regular season but there is no official timetable for his return. He hopes to remove his walking boot in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to continue to monitor the situation during training camp to see if Watkins is making progress in his recovery. Watkins is a risky option for owners at this point because of the injury but is a low-end No. 1 or high-end No. 2 fantasy receiver when he is healthy.

Bills | Sammy Watkins on crutches

Tue, 24 May 2016 09:51:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was seen on crutches with his left foot in a boot during organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. General manager Doug Whaley said Watkins is expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: There's no guarantee yet that Watkins will be good to go for Week 1, so we'll be keeping close tabs on his recovery up through training camp. As Buffalo's No. 1 receiver, Watkins' fantasy value takes a slight hit with the uncertainty, and he could come at a nice value in drafts. Marquise Goodwin and Robert Woods could be relied on more to open the season if Watkins is limited at all. Charles Clay could also benefit in the passing game.

Bills | Sammy Watkins expected for opener

Tue, 24 May 2016 06:52:34 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to be ready for Week 1, but the team doesn't have a target date for his return set, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins took another step forward with a 60-1,047-9 season last year, but he continues to have nagging injuries. He's a high-risk, high-reward receiver in the WR2 mix.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants healthy Sammy Watkins

Sat, 21 May 2016 20:29:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he is not worried about the injury to WR Sammy Watkins (foot) hurting their chemistry with each other. "We've been talking together and getting on the same page," Taylor said. "We want on the field work obviously, but we'll get that when the time comes. The main thing is that he gets healthy so he can play at the level that we know he's capable of playing at."

Fantasy Tip: As long as Watkins' recovery goes as planned, he should be a strong WR2 in 2016. Taylor should be a solid QB2, and he could be a sneaky starter in daily formats against the right matchups.

Bills | Sammy Watkins should miss preseason

Mon, 16 May 2016 14:20:45 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not expected to play in the preseason after undergoing foot surgery three weeks ago.

Fantasy Tip: This has turned into somewhat of a serious development for the Bills. Watkins is their main receiving threat. If his recovery time trickles into the regular season, then Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin would be the main beneficiaries, with Charles Clay still serving as Tyrod Taylor's safety blanket. Keep tabs on Watkins' recovery as the offseason continues, but take this injury and his previous injury history into consideration during fantasy drafts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins has broken bone

Mon, 16 May 2016 13:35:03 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) suffered a broken small bone in his foot and had a screw inserted, according to a source. He should still be ready for training camp, however.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins was really the Bills' only legitimate receiving threat last year, maybe aside from TE Charles Clay. He's one of the better deep threats in the league and worth selecting as a WR2 if there aren't any setbacks and if he's fully healthy when the season starts.

Bills | Sammy Watkins arrives at workouts

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 07:24:38 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins arrived at offseason workouts Wednesday, April 20, after attending a youth camp the team was aware he was attending.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins took a small step forward with a 60-1,047-9 season despite missing three games. He could be pegged for a big third season in 2016 if he can stave off the leg injuries that have dogged him. He's a good WR2 option in fantasy.
