Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Los Angeles Rams

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

Los Angeles Rams

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Colts CB Davis OUT


Vontae Davis the Colts best CB will not play week 1.

Fantasy Goo: The Colts could have used Davis on Watkins, now it is more likely they will have to keep a safety over the top on Watkins side, Watkins gets a minor upgrade but Todd Gurley gets a major upgrade with one less man in the box. Gurley is a top 5 RB play this week.

Los Angeles Rams

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Watkins Requires Foot Surgery Again


Sammy Watkins will go under the scope, but should have plenty of time to rehab before the 2017 season start.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins fantasy value is directly linked to what the Bills do with Tyrod Taylor and the new coaching. For now he's still a borderline WR2/WR3 with upside for 2017.

Watkins Good to Go


Finally some clarity from a source. Rex Ryan has confirmed that Watkins is playing versus the Raiders.

Fantasy Goo: Edelman, after dealing with the same injury last year has practiced on hardly any Wednesday sessions. Expect the same from Watkins for the rest of the year. Watkins is a solid WR2 this week.

Watkins on a Snap Count


Just like Kelvin Benjamin in Week 1.....Harvin and Woods are out, I don't know who they can substitute him out for if the Bills keep it close versus Jacksonville.

Fantasy Goo: Play Watkins at your own risk. He was watching Evans and OBJ steal the spotlight during his injury and he is always a threat to score from anywhere on the field.

Damn Sammy, Back at it Again


*HOT* Sammy Watkins has returned for the Bills and for you lucky playoff teams. Barring any setbacks (None with Dez or Edelman after second surgery of the same procedure) Watkins should be full throttle for the rest of the season

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is not a must start this week for you risk averse players, but screw risk lets get some damn points! Get Watkins now or never! Notes this also increases Tyrod's value going down the stretch.

Watkins A Great Stash


Watkins is now eligible to return to practice. Although Rex said that they will probably hold him out this week he is still a great stash, especially if you are dealing with the Alshon suspension.

Fantasy Goo: Rex Ryan loves playing spoiler to teams making a playoff push and the Bills have a JUICY post season schedule: Wk12 - Jags @ home, Wk13 @ Oakland, Wk14 - Steelers @ home, Wk15 - Browns @ home, Wk16 - Dolphins @ Home. MY GOODNESS THAT'S DELICIOUS.

Sammy Watkins Could Be Back In Time For Your Fantasy Playoffs


After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

Bills Place Sammy Watkins On IR


The Bills on Friday placed receiver Sammy Watkins on injured reserve. He cannot be activated for at least eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Hurts so Bad


@MikeGarafolo Sammy Watkins' injury status still only about pain tolerance

Fantasy Goo: It is time to offer your buddies a slew of trades if you drafted Sammy Watkins. This looks to be a yearlong drama and weeks of game time decisions. Scope out your opponents lineups and find someone who is strong at WR and offer up something you are deep at for a quality WR. Even if you have to go bargain shopping for someone who has not done much this season like Allen Hurns or Michael Floyd. Those two would be dirt cheap on the trade market. The waiver wire has some possibilities with Pryor for one.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets.

WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Fantasy Goo: The Colts could have used Davis on Watkins, now it is more likely they will have to keep a safety over the top on Watkins side, Watkins gets a minor upgrade but Todd Gurley gets a major upgrade with one less man in the box. Gurley is a top 5 RB play this week.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Sammy Watkins will go under the scope, but should have plenty of time to rehab before the 2017 season start.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

Los Angeles Rams

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins fantasy value is directly linked to what the Bills do with Tyrod Taylor and the new coaching. For now he's still a borderline WR2/WR3 with upside for 2017.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is not a must start this week for you risk averse players, but screw risk lets get some damn points! Get Watkins now or never! Notes this also increases Tyrod's value going down the stretch.

After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

The Bills on Friday placed receiver Sammy Watkins on injured reserve. He cannot be activated for at least eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is not a must start this week for you risk averse players, but screw risk lets get some damn points! Get Watkins now or never! Notes this also increases Tyrod's value going down the stretch.

Watkins A Great Stash


Watkins is now eligible to return to practice. Although Rex said that they will probably hold him out this week he is still a great stash, especially if you are dealing with the Alshon suspension.

Fantasy Goo: Rex Ryan loves playing spoiler to teams making a playoff push and the Bills have a JUICY post season schedule: Wk12 - Jags @ home, Wk13 @ Oakland, Wk14 - Steelers @ home, Wk15 - Browns @ home, Wk16 - Dolphins @ Home. MY GOODNESS THAT'S DELICIOUS.

Sammy Watkins Could Be Back In Time For Your Fantasy Playoffs


After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

Bills Place Sammy Watkins On IR


The Bills on Friday placed receiver Sammy Watkins on injured reserve. He cannot be activated for at least eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Fantasy Goo: It is time to offer your buddies a slew of trades if you drafted Sammy Watkins. This looks to be a yearlong drama and weeks of game time decisions. Scope out your opponents lineups and find someone who is strong at WR and offer up something you are deep at for a quality WR. Even if you have to go bargain shopping for someone who has not done much this season like Allen Hurns or Michael Floyd. Those two would be dirt cheap on the trade market. The waiver wire has some possibilities with Pryor for one.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

Los Angeles Rams

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Sammy Watkins will go under the scope, but should have plenty of time to rehab before the 2017 season start.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins fantasy value is directly linked to what the Bills do with Tyrod Taylor and the new coaching. For now he's still a borderline WR2/WR3 with upside for 2017.

Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Sammy Watkins will go under the scope, but should have plenty of time to rehab before the 2017 season start.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins fantasy value is directly linked to what the Bills do with Tyrod Taylor and the new coaching. For now he's still a borderline WR2/WR3 with upside for 2017.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Sammy Watkins

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

Los Angeles Rams

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

The Bills on Friday placed receiver Sammy Watkins on injured reserve. He cannot be activated for at least eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Watkins A Great Stash


Watkins is now eligible to return to practice. Although Rex said that they will probably hold him out this week he is still a great stash, especially if you are dealing with the Alshon suspension.

Fantasy Goo: Rex Ryan loves playing spoiler to teams making a playoff push and the Bills have a JUICY post season schedule: Wk12 - Jags @ home, Wk13 @ Oakland, Wk14 - Steelers @ home, Wk15 - Browns @ home, Wk16 - Dolphins @ Home. MY GOODNESS THAT'S DELICIOUS.

Sammy Watkins Could Be Back In Time For Your Fantasy Playoffs


After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

Bills Place Sammy Watkins On IR


The Bills on Friday placed receiver Sammy Watkins on injured reserve. He cannot be activated for at least eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Fantasy Goo: It is time to offer your buddies a slew of trades if you drafted Sammy Watkins. This looks to be a yearlong drama and weeks of game time decisions. Scope out your opponents lineups and find someone who is strong at WR and offer up something you are deep at for a quality WR. Even if you have to go bargain shopping for someone who has not done much this season like Allen Hurns or Michael Floyd. Those two would be dirt cheap on the trade market.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.

Sammy Watkins Availability Will Come Down To A Game-Time Decision


Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said Friday the odds of Sammy Watkins playing Sunday against Arizona are "probably not real good ... If he feels good and up to it, he will. Don't officially count him out." Ryan also said Watkins, who didn't practice Friday, had his bad foot stepped on during a walkthrough this week.

Fantasy Goo: If his foot was stepped on, that may explain why he seemed to have a setback, as he hasn't practiced all week. Watkins should be nowhere near your fantasy lineups. Even if he did play, Buffalo also has been without left tackle Cordy Glenn all week, and with a new coordinator, the offense may be in for a meltdown against the imposing Cardinals defense.

Los Angeles Rams

Match-Up Wish Come True


The Saints are without their two top CBs on Sunday vs. the Rams: CB Marshon Lattimore (ankle) and CB Ken Crawley (abdomen) are both out.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints defense has been very good against the pass this year, allowing the eighth fewest points to WR’s, but mainly due to these CB’s. With Robert Woods (WR, LA) out for the next few weeks with a shoulder injury Sammy Watkins will have to step-up and prove he’s the WR1 he’s been touted to be. Cooper Kupp and Tavon Austin could also see an opportunity to re-emerge as productive offensive weapons.

Slammy Watkins


WR Sammy Watkins – Watkins had a nice debut in Los Angeles hauling in all of his targets, however he surprisingly played only 61% of the team’s snaps and 16% of the targets. Expecting Watkins to be matched up with Norman for a good amount of the game, means that you are best off finding a different option at WR.

All Moved In


WR Sammy Watkins – Vontae Davis has already been ruled out of week 1 action which leads to Watkins being matched up with Darryl Morris, who graded out as a middle of the pack CB by PFF at 73.7, yields a matchup advantage of only +6% for Watkins. Although Sammy is one of the most talented WRs in the NFL, he is tied to Jared Goff’s production which I do not think will be relatively strong. Goff has never showed the ability to win with the deep ball at the pro level and I’m generally staying away from Watkins until he does. Didn’t think there could be much worse than playing with Tyrod Taylor in Buffalo, but Watkins may have found himself in one of the very few worse situations. Well, at least he gets to enjoy the beach instead of shoveling snow off his driveway now.

Los Angeles Rams

Colts CB Davis OUT


Vontae Davis the Colts best CB will not play week 1.

Fantasy Goo: The Colts could have used Davis on Watkins, now it is more likely they will have to keep a safety over the top on Watkins side, Watkins gets a minor upgrade but Todd Gurley gets a major upgrade with one less man in the box. Gurley is a top 5 RB play this week.

Sammy to Rams


“Bills have acquired CB E.J. Gaines and Rams 2018 second round pick for WR Sammy Watkins and Bills 2018 sixth round pick.” This is a nice piece for Goff to show if he’s is worth the draft position. Rams GM has also stated publicly that he would like to sign Sammy to a long term deal.

Fantasy Goo: This is a slight downgrade for Sammy depending on how Goff is able to recover from a dismal rookie year. Sammy is currently going at the end of the third, I’m going to wait just a few picks to see if I can get him in the 4th now. This puts a hurting on all of the Robert Woods truther’s out there, Woods will only have value now if Sammy goes down again. Check the Pyro Pulse Podcast (Ep.5) to get the hot, sticky goo on how this affects the value of the other Rams skill players.

Sammy Watkins leaves practice limping, I'm on team ZayJo!


About 30 minutes into Sunday’s Buffalo Bills training camp practice today, 4th-year WR Sammy Watkins gimped off the field with an athletic trainer after tweaking his ankle.

Fantasy Goo: Is there an echo in here? I'm staying away from 'Big Bucks, No Whammies Sammy' this year. Could he go 16 games and end up as a top-10 WR in 2017? Sure, maybe - but I'm not risking my fantasy teams on it. Been there, done that. Watkins has ruined a fantasy season or two for me in the past few seasons and it just seems like he's never going to stay healthy, so why let him ruin any future squads? Live and learn, I'm taking the far more prolific Bills rookie WR Zay Jones 10+ rounds later in drafts. Watkins is the 17th WR going off of boards as a latish 3rd round pick currently, while ZayJo is the 59th WR going near the 14th round.

Watkins is Back!


Sammy is a killer on the Go route, he has amassed 30% of his fantasy points on Go routes from 2014 to 2016. Watkins was the most efficient WR in the NFL in 2015 with 10.9 yards per target and second most with 2.28 fantasy points per target.

Fantasy Goo: When throwing to Sammy, the Bill’s say a premium of 43.8% expected fantasy points when targeting Watkins vs any other receiver. Like Dez and Julio, among others, Watkins now falls outside of the 2 year recover period that Julio has never recorded less than 1,400 yards in a season.

Watkins All The Way Back?


"After the season finale in New York, he said he hoped to avoid surgery, but days later elected to have the procedure done. His rehab appears to be on schedule, as he was able to participate in a few team drills before the Bills wrapped up their spring practices. With six weeks between mandatory minicamp and start of training camp, Watkins should be close to 100 percent when camp starts Thursday."

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has WR1 upside when he is healthy and he is currently being drafted in the third round. Others that have gone through this procedure and have come back to full upside include; Julian Edelman, Dez Bryant, and Julio Jones.

Bills Decline To Pick Up Watkins Option


In a somewhat surprising move the Buffalo Bills declined to pick up Watkins 5th year option. After being selected 4th overall in the 2014 draft and before the likes of OBJ, Mike Evans and Brandin Cooks. All of which got their 5th year option picked up by their current team.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins has had trouble staying healthy, missing 11 games in the past two season. His value when healthy is not in question though as one of the most talented WRs in the league. Bills can still resign or extend Watkins through this season so him leaving Buffalo is not yet imminent.

Watkins Requires Foot Surgery Again


Sammy Watkins will go under the scope, but should have plenty of time to rehab before the 2017 season start.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins fantasy value is directly linked to what the Bills do with Tyrod Taylor and the new coaching. For now he's still a borderline WR2/WR3 with upside for 2017.

Watkins Good to Go


Finally some clarity from a source. Rex Ryan has confirmed that Watkins is playing versus the Raiders.

Fantasy Goo: Edelman, after dealing with the same injury last year has practiced on hardly any Wednesday sessions. Expect the same from Watkins for the rest of the year. Watkins is a solid WR2 this week.

Watkins on a Snap Count


Just like Kelvin Benjamin in Week 1.....Harvin and Woods are out, I don't know who they can substitute him out for if the Bills keep it close versus Jacksonville.

Fantasy Goo: Play Watkins at your own risk. He was watching Evans and OBJ steal the spotlight during his injury and he is always a threat to score from anywhere on the field.

Damn Sammy, Back at it Again


*HOT* Sammy Watkins has returned for the Bills and for you lucky playoff teams. Barring any setbacks (None with Dez or Edelman after second surgery of the same procedure) Watkins should be full throttle for the rest of the season

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is not a must start this week for you risk averse players, but screw risk lets get some damn points! Get Watkins now or never! Notes this also increases Tyrod's value going down the stretch.

Watkins A Great Stash


Watkins is now eligible to return to practice. Although Rex said that they will probably hold him out this week he is still a great stash, especially if you are dealing with the Alshon suspension.

Fantasy Goo: Rex Ryan loves playing spoiler to teams making a playoff push and the Bills have a JUICY post season schedule: Wk12 - Jags @ home, Wk13 @ Oakland, Wk14 - Steelers @ home, Wk15 - Browns @ home, Wk16 - Dolphins @ Home. MY GOODNESS THAT'S DELICIOUS.

Sammy Watkins Could Be Back In Time For Your Fantasy Playoffs


After seeing Dr. Robert Anderson, Sammy Watkins received a recommendation not for surgery on his foot, but rest and rehab, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Watkins is eligible to be activated from injured reserve for Week twelve.

Fantasy Goo: If you're in a really deep league with a really deep bench, or have an IR spot in your league, Watkins can be a wing-and-a-prayer stash for the fantasy playoffs.

Bills Place Sammy Watkins On IR


The Bills on Friday placed receiver Sammy Watkins on injured reserve. He cannot be activated for at least eight weeks.

Fantasy Goo: Watkins is awaiting news from Dr. James Andrews to see if he needs further surgery on his foot if he does in fact need surgery he can be dropped in season-long formats, If he needs only rest he may be worth a stash for a late playoff run only if you have a really deep bench.

Hurts so Bad


@MikeGarafolo Sammy Watkins' injury status still only about pain tolerance

Fantasy Goo: It is time to offer your buddies a slew of trades if you drafted Sammy Watkins. This looks to be a yearlong drama and weeks of game time decisions. Scope out your opponents lineups and find someone who is strong at WR and offer up something you are deep at for a quality WR. Even if you have to go bargain shopping for someone who has not done much this season like Allen Hurns or Michael Floyd. Those two would be dirt cheap on the trade market. The waiver wire has some possibilities with Pryor for one.

Sammy Watkins Out For Week Three


ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) will be out for todays game versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Goo: This is likely the best route for the Bills to take try to keep their star wideout out of this week's game not only would Sammy be playing with an injured foot that was stepped on this week in practice but he would matched up with one of the premier corners in the league in Patrick Peterson at less than 100% would not be good for Watkins.
