Going to the Rams isn't ideal from an efficiency standpoint, but it's also not quite as bad as you think. The Rams went out and hired an offensive-minded head coach in Sean McVay, snagged the top offensive lineman in free agency to protect Jared Goff's blindside, and drafted a few wide receivers who are possession-style wide receivers. Watkins, however, is the only alpha-dog on the team and should see at least 125 targets there. Combining volume with his talent level can be dangerous, making him worth it as a low-end WR2 with upside for more.

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.
