|Watkins showed vast improvement as a sophomore receiver finishing the year with 60 catches for 1,047 yards and 9 touchdowns after coming on strong down the stretch. He had off-season surgery for a stress fracture to his foot, and news about his availability for training camp and even for Week 1 has been erratic to say the least. He posted a video of himself in early July running in a straight line and predicted he’ll be available for the start of training camp. The Bills will likely error on the side of caution however and limit his practice time in camp. Watkins looks dominant at times, showing well against the league’s top cornerbacks like Darrelle Revis, and averaged 5.4 catches for 100 yards and a touchdown over his last nine games. With some improvement from quarterback Tyrod Taylor, Watkins could be poised for a monster season, but the foot injury will need to be monitored and potential owners will need to deal and be comfortable with the associated injury risk.
| Watkins goal: be ready for training camp|

|"For training camp, I think I'll definitely be available," Watkins told TSN.ca. "I might sit out two or three days. It's all about how I feel within those days. The goal is to come back and be prepared for training camp."
Sammy Watkins suffered a broken bone in his foot this offseason and had a screw inserted in April.
FFToday's Take: Watkins went on to say there is no specific timetable for his return. Watkins is a key piece to the Bills offense and he's capable of posting WR1 numbers when healthy. He posted a 60-1047-9 line in 12 games last season including four 100-plus-yard games in his last six. His current ADP sits at WR18 (3.10) in 12-team redraft leagues.

FFToday's Take: Sammy Watkins' elite talent and lack of competition still provide plenty of fantasy upside as he enters his third year in the league. However, lower body ailments of the calf, hip and now foot should cast enough injury concern to make him a risky choice as your team's top receiver in 2016.
