Sammy Watkins says Greg Roman "is definitely going to open up" offense

The Ravens had trouble recruiting wide receivers this offseason. Sammy Watkins is the one big name they were able to bring in, and he fully expects the offense to transform in 2021. The former Chiefs pass-catcher said that he believes Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman, who has drawn criticism for the team's passing game, will move players around and truly open up the offense. It's worth mentioning that the two spent time together with the Buffalo Bills in 2015 and 2016.

Fantasy Impact

Specifically, Watkins said, "I just can’t wait. He’s going to utilize us in so many different ways. He’s got a complex offense. I know the world hasn’t been seeing that yet, but he’s definitely going to open it up this year, run the ball and do, I’m pretty sure, all types of things with this offense.” There has clearly been conversation between Watkins and Roman, and you can't help but wonder if the former's signing with Baltimore was contingent on knowing the team's plans. No matter the scenario, it is refreshing to see that at least one Baltimore receiver has his offensive coordinator's back. The Ravens have had a dynamic offense but lacked an elite passing game, so perhaps there is reason to believe they will take that next step in 2021.

Sammy Watkins inks one-year deal with the Ravens

WR Sammy Watkins is signing a one-year, $6 million contract with the Ravens. The deal includes $5 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins visited both the Ravens and Colts this past week, but ultimately ends up with Baltimore on a one-year deal. The 27-year-old was limited to 10 games in 2020 due to calf injury. He hauled in 37 receptions on 55 targets for 421 yards and two touchdowns for the Chiefs last season. Watkins gives QB Lamar Jackson another target in the Ravens passing game to go along with WR Marquise Brown and TE Mark Andrews. Watkins is currently 77th among all wideouts in the latest expert consensus rankings, but expect that number to rise with the latest news.

Sammy Watkins held in check with one reception for 13 yards in loss to Bucs

Sammy Watkins caught his lone target for 13 yards in the Chiefs' 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins made his return to the Chiefs lineup after missing time with a calf injury. He hadn't played since Week 16, and while he appeared to be healthy, he only received one target in a game where the Chiefs played from behind for the entire contest. Watkins' future in KC is undetermined, as he's floated the idea of retirement since last season. Should he not return, Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson would move up the Chiefs' depth chart next season. Watkins' season ends with a career-low 421 receiving yards.
