There's most definitely some risk built into Watkins, but here's the silver-lining. If you were to remove the two games that Watkins played at the start of the 2016 season (foot was still hurting), here are his last 14 games with Tyrod Taylor: 110 targets, 67 receptions, 1,236 yards, 9 touchdowns. If you were to carry that pace over 16 games, it would amount to more fantasy points than Antonio Brown scored in 2016.

Sammy Watkins not yet '100 percent?'

Buffalo Bills beat writer Jay Skurski is reporting wide receiver Sammy Watkins (foot) "should be close to 100 percent" at the start of training camp.

Fantasy Impact

Watkins, who is coming off of offseason foot surgery, is nearing "100 percent" as training camp approaches, after practicing in a limited capacity at OTAs. From a fantasy football perspective, the 24-year-old wideout is entering a contract year after the Bills declined to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason. Watkins must prove to the team, plus, his fantasy owners, that he can remain healthy and productive moving forward before committing to him long-term. Currently, he holds a WR16 ADP and is falling in fantasy drafts, which is a bargain if he plays up to his capability. However, I'm treading lightly with Watkins entering 2017, unless he falls to somewhere in the back-end of the third round in 12 team leagues.
