    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins posted two catches for just 30 yards on two targets in Week 2 against Washington.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has seven grabs for just 88 yards and he hasn't visited the end zone through two games. He is slowly getting up to speed in the team's system after coming over from the Bills late in the preseason. Eventually he'll re-emerge as a top fantasy option, but right now you can expect mediocre results until he gets up to speed.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 7:42pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins caught all five of his targets for 58 yards in a 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Despite joining the Rams about a month ago, Watkins already showed solid chemistry with Jared Goff. A Week 2 meeting with Washington could mean a matchup with Josh Norman, but Watkins still has enough upside to use as a WR3.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 6:56pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins is expected to play in the preseason game against the Oakland Raiders Saturday, Aug. 14, according to head coach Sean McVay.

    Huddle Up: Watkins will need some time to learn the Rams offense, so it is not known how much playing time he will receive Saturday. Watkins probably will be the Rams' top receiver this season and should see plenty of targets. He probably should be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/12/2017 8:53pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins said he can be 'that home-run guy' for the offense.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has loads of talent, but staying healthy was already a problem, and the quarterback situation in Los Angeles is far from ideal. He should be considered a high-upside WR3 at this point.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 2:24pm ET

    Los Angeles Rams general manager Les Snead said the team is interested in signing WR Sammy Watkins to a long-term contract since he is entering the last year of his contract. The two sides have not had contract talks at this point.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should be the No. 1 receiver for the Rams this season but is still a risky option because of his injury history. He has joined another team that likes to run the ball, but he should receive a solid amount of targets in the passing game. He can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 10:16am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was traded along with a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round selection on Friday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: The Bills did not take advantage of their ability to pick up the fifth-year option on Watkins this spring, and it turns out it won't be a problem for them after all. Instead, they will likely move forward with rookie Zay Jones and the newly acquired Jordan Matthews as their starting receivers. Jones should now be considered a quality WR3 option in fantasy, while Matthews will likely settle in as a WR4, at least initially.

  • Posted: 8/10/2017 5:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was targeted on each of Tyrod Taylor's first four pass attempts and finished with four catches for 39 yards in in the team's preseason opener versus the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, Aug. 10.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately, we can Watkins' ADP to skyrocket over the next week. Watkins' ability has never been in question, but his ability to stay on the field has. He has always been capable of being a fantasy WR1, but owners need to remember he has played 21 of 32 games over the last two seasons due to foot injuries. Owners need to understand the risk he comes with before using a third-round selection on him in drafts.

  • Posted: 8/8/2017 6:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) will play about a quarter in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 10, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Watkins turned his ankle over the weekend, but it's just another strand in a string of injuries. He has WR2 potential, but he can't be trusted as more than a WR3 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 2:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 7, and appeared to be a full participant.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has dealt with injuries in the past but it appears that the one he suffered this weekend is minor. He has been a productive player when he is healthy and should be the No. 1 receiver for the Bills in 2017. Owners in most leagues can consider him a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 8/6/2017 1:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) left practice early Sunday, Aug. 6, after he suffered an ankle injury. Watkins said he believes he will be able to return to practice Monday, Aug. 7.

    Huddle Up: It looks like Watkins suffered a minor injury, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 430 yards and two touchdowns in 2016 because of injury but will be the team's No. 1 receiver this season. Watkins probably can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/2/2017 7:16am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said his surgically repaired left foot is fully healthy. 'My job is really to get back in shape and be out there with the guys,' Watkins said. 'I don't want to hear no more about the foot. The foot is fine. I'm healed.' He'll be on a fluctuating repetition count during training camp.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has WR1 talent, but he has been a walking injury report throughout his career. Give credit to him for playing through it until last season, but this is a prove-it year for him. He's a WR2 with significant risk and reward.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 6:34pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, July 27, but he didn't look hindered by his surgically-repaired foot during drills, according to Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com.

    Huddle Up: Watkins is a high-risk, high-reward WR2, but if he can stay healthy for an entire season, he could put up WR1 numbers.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 1:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is on schedule in terms of his rehab from his foot injury but will be limited during the early part of training camp, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has struggled with injuries over the last year or two but appears to be on track to play in Week 1. He will be the top option in the passing game for the Bills and should see plenty of targets if he is healthy this season. Owners in most leagues should consider Watkins as a No. 2 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 7/22/2017 6:21pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to be close to 100 percent healthy when training camp begins.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has injury red flags galore, but he has WR1 potential if he can actually stay healthy. When it comes time to draft a WR2, you may want to roll the dice on Watkins and his upside.

  • Posted: 6/25/2017 5:52pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is unlikely to be ready for a full workload when training camp begins.

    Huddle Up: His injury history is a major red flag, but Watkins has enough upside to take a chance on as your WR2.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 11:56am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) participated in team drills at minicamp Tuesday, June 13. Head coach Sean McDermott said Watkins has responded well to a bigger workload and that workload will continue to be increased as long as Watkins can handle it.

    Huddle Up: At this rate, it looks like Watkins will be able to make a full recovery in time for the regular season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. He has a reputation for being injury prone, though, after missing 11 games the last two seasons. A Buffalo's No. 1 receiver, Watkins can be drafted as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.

  • Posted: 6/13/2017 8:33am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) remains limited in practice Tuesday, June 13. Watkins will likely be relegated to individual drills during mandatory minicamp with the potential to increase his workload in training camp.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has battled a myriad of injuries in his brief career, but he has as much talent as risk as a low-end WR2.

  • Posted: 6/8/2017 7:46am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will be limited in practice Thursday, June 8.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has been injury prone throughout his career, but he played really well through them the first couple of years. He's a high-risk WR2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 5/20/2017 6:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not expected to return to the field until training camp begins.

    Huddle Up: Watkins' upside is undeniable, but he is a high-risk WR2 because of his injury history.

  • Posted: 5/18/2017 8:30am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not participating in the organized team activities Thursday, May 18.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has shown equal ability on the field as his propensity for injury. His 60-1,047-9 campaign in 2015 over 13 games had him as a high-end WR2 last year before another foot injury. He'll enter 2017 as a high-risk WR2 that could fall into the WR3 area and handsomely reward you.

  • Posted: 5/5/2017 9:03am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is not expected to receive an extension offer during the season, according to the Buffalo News's Vic Carucci, who believes new head coach Sean McDermott's big-picture vision for the roster doesn't include a huge investment in a receiver.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has proven to be a dominant force when he can stay on the field but playing 21 of a possible 32 games over the last two seasons isn't helping his cause. Buffalo recently declined his fifth-year team option, so it is beginning to look like they'll be one of the more sought-after free agents in 2018. Almost regardless of where he might land, he should be no worse than a fantasy WR2 this year and beyond.

  • Posted: 5/2/2017 12:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins will not have his fifth-year option picked up, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: This move, or lack of a move, makes sense for the Bills. Watkins is easily Buffalo's best receiver, but he has begun a track record of not being able to stay on the field after missing 11 total games the last two years. Watkins is a high-risk, high-reward pick and should be drafted as a low-end WR2.

  • Posted: 4/28/2017 6:32pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins' (foot) fifth-year option likely will not be picked up before the May 2 deadline, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Watkins is recovering from foot surgery and has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons. He should continue to be the Bills' No. 1 receiver in 2017 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 4/15/2017 7:04am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 4/3/2017 9:49am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 3/28/2017 4:21pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 3/1/2017 10:04am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/20/2017 3:01pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) underwent a second surgery on his injured foot last week. Watkins is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Watkins likely will be sidelined for all of the offseason workouts but should take part in training camp as long as there are no setbacks. He will enter next season as the No. 1 receiver for the Bills and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/3/2017 7:34pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 7:43am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (hip) left the Week 17 game against the New York Jets due to a hip injury and he was unable to return.

    Huddle Up: Watkins ended up with four catches for 31 yards on nine targets. He has WR1 ability for fantasy owners, but his propensity for injury makes him more of a WR2 heading into the 2017 season.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 2:54pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins caught four passes for 31 yards against the New York Jets in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Watkins played well after coming off the Reserve/Injured list and should enter next season as the team's No. 1 receiver. Owners should consider Watkins as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in drafts next season.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:07am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should receive a solid amount of targets in Week 17 even though EJ Manuel will be the starting quarterback. Owners in most leagues should consider Watkins as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver against the New York Jets.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 7:22am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to play in Week 17's game against the New York Jets. He was a limited participant in the team's two most recent practice sessions and is listed as questionable on the injury report.

    Huddle Up: Watkins posted 154 receiving yards in Week 16 and has two touchdowns in his last three games but he will be catching passes from E.J. Manuel this afternoon instead of Tyrod Taylor. That being said, he should still see a decent number of targets and makes a solid WR3 option in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 1:05pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should be able to play and likely will serve as the team's top receiving option during the game. He is coming off a terrific Week 16 performance and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues despite the quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 1:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should be able to suit up for the final week of the season, but how much he plays remains to be seen. His foot ailment combined with EJ Manuel starting lessens his fantasy value, but he does have a great matchup with the New York Jets. Start Watkins as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 9:16am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should be able to play in Week 17, but it is not known how his chemistry with E.J. Manuel at this point. He should still see a solid amount of targets during the game and should be considered a No. 3 receiver in a majority of leagues.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 12:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Watkins said he wants to play in Week 17 and probably will as long as he does not suffer a setback. He has caught two touchdowns in the last three games and posted 154 yards in Week 16. He will be playing with a new quarterback this week but can still be a decent No. 2 or No. 3 receiver.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 12:29pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said he expects to play against the New York Jets in Week 17 even though the team has been eliminated from playoff contention.

    Huddle Up: Watkins is coming off a 154-yard performance in Week 16 and has two touchdowns in his last three games. He will have a favorable matchup if he plays next week and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins caught seven passes for 154 yards and one touchdown against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has been targeted at least six times in three of the four games since being activated from the Reserve/Injured list and appears to be the top option in the passing game. He should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next week.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 9:04am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 16 game.

    Huddle Up: Watkins was a disappointing option for owners last week but will continue to have a solid role in the passing game for Buffalo. He could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 8:03am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Watkins was a limited practice participant throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a viable WR3 or flex option this afternoon in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 1:06pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has been targeted 22 times in four games since returning from the Reserve/Injured list but has been a bit inconsistent with his receiving yards during that span. He will be facing a solid Miami Dolphins defense but can still be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 5:22pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Watkins is coming off an awful showing against Cleveland, and he is a boom-or-bust WR3 against Miami in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 12:20pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Watkins was one of the more popular fantasy options last week but finished the game with one catch and 10 yards against the Cleveland Browns. Watkins should still see a solid amount of targets in Week 16 and can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 9:10am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is practicing Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Watkins had a good matchup last week and turned in just one catch for 10 yards. He has a midrange draw against the Miami Dolphins. He packs a punch with name value as a flex option, but it's hard to expect a lot out of him at this stage.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 2:30pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins caught one pass for 10 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Owners were probably expecting more from Watkins because of the favorable matchup but caught only one of his four targets. He should continue to be a key part of the passing game in the last two games of the season and can be at least a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 9:04am ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is officially active for the team's Week 15 game.

    Huddle Up: Watkins has been more involved in the passing game since returning from his injury and has a favorable matchup in Week 15. He should he a fine No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.

    Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Watkins should be able to play against the Cleveland Browns and may be more involved in the offense. He has played well over the last three games and should be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in leagues because of the favorable matchups.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 9:25am ET
