2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
Sammy Watkins came just 18 yards shy of joining Mike Evans, Odell Beckham Jr., and Kevlin Benjamin as four rookie wide receivers to break the century mark in receiving yards last season. The former first-round pick from Clemson added six receiving touchdowns and 65 receptions in what ended up being a solid rookie campaign, despite the fact that he posted ten games with three or less catches.

The new Rex Ryan regime does not bode well for fantasy owners of Watkins (hip)looking for an increase in volume, as Ryan will likely continue to be a run-first coach with the Bills. Another 65-reception season could be in store for Watkins, however, the question is can he become more of a threat in the red zone and top the ten-touchdown plateau in his sophomore season. The addition of Percy Harvin may also reduce the number of targets for Watkins, while conversely opening the door for more single coverage deep and the opportunity for more big plays. Watkins should be viewed as a low-end WR2 who would be a solid number two if he can increase his red zone touches.

Watkins feeling good after hip surgery
Hip injury one of several obstacles for top Bills WR in 2014
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 27, 5:20 pm

Buffalo Bills
The slower pace forced by Sammy Watkins' recovery from February surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip, the most serious of multiple injuries he suffered as a rookie, allowed him to put greater focus on the mental part of playing wide receiver in the NFL. It allowed him to spend more time learning about what to do and how to do it from his new position coach on the Buffalo Bills, lessons that he says he never received from his previous position coach. And it provided such a welcome opportunity to let everything, along his repaired hip, feel better. "My body feels great. I feel like Iím 17," Watkins said. (Buffalo News)

FFToday's Take: Watkins talked about a number of other subjects, most notably the lack of route-running detail provided by former WR coach Rob Moore - an oversight that has been corrected by the hiring of new WR coach Sanjay Lal. The No. 4 overall pick will continue to suffer from sub-par quarterbacking (Matt Cassel, E.J. Manuel and Tyrod Taylor are vying for the job) and a run-heavy scheme, but Watkins is simply too talented to be considered anything less than a low-end WR2 in fantasy.


Injury Sammy Watkins limited during OTAs
Bills wideout recovering from hip surgery

Sammy Watkins did not participate in any 7-on-7 or 11-on-11 drills, recovering from his offseason hip procedure. However, he was often near the offensive huddle, listening to plays, and helping call out coverages. With Watkins out and no Marquise Goodwin, I saw a lot of Robert Woods working outside, with Chris Hogan in the slot. (WGR 550 Sports Radio)

FFToday's Take: Goodwin has had trouble leaving Texas due to the flood situation in that area and hasn't been to OTA's. It's likely Watkins will be limited until training camp begins in late July. Watkins upside is capped at WR2 value thanks to mediocre quarterback play and a run-first offense.
