2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
One of the premiere deep threats in the league, Sammy Watkins enters the 2017 season reportedly healthy after missing most of 2016 with a foot in injury. The Jones fracture Watkins sustained limited his lateral and vertical route running last season, as the former first round selection from Clemson likely came back too early in the recovery process.

When healthy, Watkins has the talent and opportunity to finish the season as a top-12 WR receiver, making him an interesting selection at his current third round ADP. The threat of Watkins re-injuring his foot will keep his ADP likely outside of the second round.

The fact that the Bills have led the league in rushing over the past two seasons and the team's propensity to run the ball in the red zone should not shy owners away from drafting Watkins, as 70% of his 17 career touchdowns have come from outside the red zone. He is a big play player that may be a league-winning selection for owners comfortable with the risk he carries.

News From The Past 90 Days
Boldin has change of heart, retires from NFL
Veteran WR calls is quits
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 20, 7:00 pm

Buffalo Bills
Football has always been a priority for Anquan Boldin. But after 14 seasons, more than 200 games and nearly 14,000 yards receiving, the veteran wide receiver now feels a higher calling, which is why he left the Buffalo Bills on Sunday after only two weeks with the team and plans to retire. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Boldin signed with the Bills two weeks ago but after a couple key trades that included Sammy Watkins and DB Ronald Darby, the veteran receiver had a change of heart. He reportedly wants to focus on humanitarian and human rights work. His departure leaves the Bills with Jordan Matthews (chest), Zay Jones and Andre Holmes atop the wide receiver depth chart.


Jordan Matthews headed to Buffalo
Bills shakeup wide receiver group
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 11, 1:45 pm

Buffalo Bills
The Eagles made a shocking move on Friday, trading away wide receiver Jordan Matthews and a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to the Buffalo Bills for cornerback Ronald Darby, the team announced Friday. (NJ.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bills have made significant changes to the wide receiver group over the last few days by acquiring Anquan Boldin, Mathews and trading star Sammy Watkins to the Rams. The Eagles have been talking up Nelson Agholor all pre-season and now it seems he's in line for the starting slot position with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith on the outside. Matthews should step into the starting lineup in Buffalo and will see boost in fantasy value.


Bills ship WR Sammy Watkins to Rams
Acquire cornerback E.J. Gaines
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Aug 11, 1:23 pm

Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills have traded wide receiver Sammy Watkins and a sixth-round pick in next year's draft to the Los Angeles Rams for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round pick, the Bills announced Friday. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Whoa. Given the moves this off-season, the Bills are focusing on the future which doesn't included their best receiver. This relocation isn't good news for Watkins fantasy value who now will be catching passes from Jared Goff who was below average in most QB passing categories last season. Perhaps a new offensive system under Sean McVay and a legitimate No.1 will push Goff in the right direction, but there are too many variables to continue valuing Watkins as a high-end WR2.


Bills ready to sign WR Anquan Boldin
One-year deal
By: Doug Orth | Mon Aug 7, 11:23 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills are giving WR Anquan Boldin a one-year, $2.75 million deal, that includes $1.25 million in incentives, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Bills needed an other veteran receiving option and they found their man. Boldin will likely start opposite Sammy Watkins and should give the offense a stable presence. His signing dings the fantasy value of rookie WR Zay Jones but won't drain any targets from Watkins. Buffalo remains a run-first offense so Boldin should be viewed as a TD-dependent WR4.
