Sammy Watkins held to 36 yards in loss to Vikings

Sammy Watkins caught three of his four targets for 36 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins presence has clearly opened things up for the Rams offense but he has clearly taken a back seat in the Rams passing attack by only earning four targets in a mostly close game. He was tied for fourth on the team in targets with Todd Gurley. Watkins is purely a dart throw at this point, but he has the potential to explode with all of his talent, it just hasn't come together for him in Los Angeles. He could be a sneaky play in Week 12 in what is almost surely going to be a shoot out against the Saints.

Sammy Watkins scores again in victory of Houston

Sammy Watkins caught two of three targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-7 blowout victory over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins has now scored in back-to-back weeks but has clearly taken a backseat to Robert Woods as the top receiving threat. Watkins is hard to trust as anything more than a boom or bust WR3 as the Rams third option at best through the air.

Sammy Watkins scores on 67-yard bomb in Week 9

Sammy Watkins caught 1-of-2 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown during the Rams' 51-17 rout of the Giants in Week 9.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was lucky the Giants blew their coverage on his lone reception of the game, turning what would've been another invisible fantasy performance into a solid one. Goff really doesn't look in Watkins' direction often, and the former Bills wideout has only topped 10 fantasy points twice all season. Watkins is the definition of a boom or bust player, but usually you can expect him to be the latter.

Sammy Watkins disappoints again

Sammy Watkins caught three of five targets for 42 yards on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

This was actually improvement for Watkins, as he saw his best totals for targets, receptions, and yards since Week 3 against the 49ers. The fact is that Watkins continues to draw coverage from his opponent's best cornerback, and Jared Goff just doesn't take enough chances. With a bye coming up and matchups against the Giants and Texans on the horizon, Watkins is borderline droppable, though his potential makes him someone to stash if you can.

Sammy Watkins held without a catch in Week 5

Sammy Watkins caught 0-of-4 targets thrown his way in a Week 5 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was no where to be seen in this contest as the Seahawks had him blanketed for the whole game. It was the first goose egg of the year for Watkins and unfortunately it doesn't get easier for the receiver as he draws the Jaguars next week. Expect Watkins to be a boom-or-bust WR3 in that matchup.
