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 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.
