Fantasy Impact:

Things just got a lot more exciting for fantasy football players, as this means Sammy Watkins will become a free agent. The Rams likely came to this decision once the franchise tag price per position came out, as the price for wide receivers is nearly $4 million more than that of a safety. For teams in the safety market, Joyner was the clear-cut No. 1 option, so this makes things a bit tougher for them. This is a smart move for the Rams, who failed to use Watkins extensively in their offense last year.
