After a solid outing in Week 1, Watkins saw Josh Norman in Week 2 and finished with just two catches for 30 yards. You can hold out to sell for one more week if you'd like, as the Rams will play the 49ers inept secondary in Week 3, but know that it's probably your final chance to sell him. The Rams schedule gets brutal starting in Week 5 as they'll play against the Seahawks, Jaguars, Cardinals, Giants, Texans, and Vikings. He'll be borderline unplayable in those matchups.

Going to LAR is a lateral move in my opinion, my only concern is if he's 100% healthy.

Over his past 16 healthy games, Watkins has been better than Amari Cooper. Add in the fact that the Rams threw for more yards than Buffalo last year and that Watkins now has less competition and there is no reason his draft stock should have taken such a severe tumble.
