Sammy Watkins held to two catches in Week 2

Sammy Watkins caught both of his targets in a Week 2 loss to the Redskins. He had 30 yards with a long of 28 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was quiet for most of the day outside of a 28-yard catch he made. He should continue to be a deep threat option as Cooper Kupp seems to have a hold on all the underneath routes. Watkins will go into Week 3 as a boom-or-bust option for fantasy owners, but he'll be more on the boom side as he has a great matchup in the 49ers.

Sammy Watkins hauls in five catches vs Colts

Sammy Watkins caught all five of his targets in the Rams' blowout Week 1 victory over the Colts. His five catches went for 58 yards and he had a long of 24 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins had a fine first performance with the Rams. If it wasn't for the blowout, he may have had an even bigger day, but the game was over by the end of the first half. You can expect Watkins to be a WR2 next week as the Rams face off against the Redskins.

Sammy Watkins targeted once vs Chargers

Sammy Watkins caught 0-of-1 passes thrown his way on Saturday night vs the Chargers. The pass was intercepted as it was badly overthrown by Jared Goff.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was targeted once all night on a deep route, but it was badly overthrown and intercepted. This is the fear for Sammy Watkins owners. The Rams will surely try and utilize their new number one receiver, but Jared Goff could hamper his effectiveness. Hopefully the Goff to Watkins connection will smooth over, but for now Watkins is a risky fourth to fifth round pick in fantasy drafts.

Sammy Watkins debuts for Rams on Saturday

Sammy Watkins caught two-of-four passes thrown his way on Saturday night vs the Raiders. He had a measly eight yards on the two catches, and couldn't haul in either of his deep targets on the night.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins was able to suit up in this one, but he didn't make all the difference, catching just two passes for a short gain. Look for Watkins to improve on tonight and get his timing down with Goff on his deep routes. Watkins has the potential to be deadly in Sean McVay's offense, but it will all come down to quarterback, Jared Goff.

Sammy Watkins traded to the Rams

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have traded away Sammy Watkins and their 2018 sixth-round pick in exchange for cornerback E.J. Gaines and the Rams 2018 second-round pick.

Fantasy Impact

Whoa boy. This one is going to take some time to process. Watkins is a difference maker at one of the most important positions on the field. The former No. 4 overall pick will go to Sean McVay's offense to play with Jared Goff. It's not ideal from a fantasy perspective, because Goff doesn't quite fit Watkins' skill-set. As of right now, Watkins should be looked at as a low-end WR2 who'll be even more up and down than he would've been on the Bills.
