It's safe to say he's healthy, eh? He went against a team that hadn't allowed a receiver more than 18.6 PPR points against them all year and delivered an 11-catch, 133-yard performance (24.3 PPR points). His average air yards per target on each target is 1.6 yards. There is no other wide receiver with a number lower than 5.1 yards (Greg Ward). They're getting creative and manufacturing touches for him to create after the catch, which is something he's one of the best in the league at doing. According to NFL's NextGenStats, he should be averaging 8.4 yards after the catch based on where defenders have been in proximity to him, but he's managed to average 13.0 per reception. The 4.6-yard difference is the highest in the NFL, slightly topping A.J. Brown's 4.1-yard gap. Of the fantasy production the Bills have allowed to skill-position players, wide receivers have accounted for just 45.7 percent of it, which ranks as the third-lowest mark in the league. But again, the Rams were even better than that. Tre'Davious White is their shadow cornerback, though he doesn't go into the slot, which is where Samuel is placed 34 percent of the time. Taron Johnson is the slot cornerback who's allowed 45-of-59 passing for 462 yards. There's only one cornerback who's allowed more slot yardage than him (Buster Skrine). It's also worth noting that 44 percent of the yardage Johnson has allowed in coverage has come after the catch. Samuel should be in lineups as a WR3 until we're given reason not to trust him.He returned to the lineup successfully last week, playing 57-of-79 total snaps and seeing seven targets. They amounted to four receptions for 38 yards, so nothing to write home about, but he's seen at least seven targets in all four games he's played from start to finish this year. The Broncos play stations on the field, so there aren't any shadow matchups to wonder about. They've been one of the more efficient defenses against receivers, allowing just 7.52 yards per target (3rd-fewest). They have allowed 13 wide receivers to finish top-36 against them, though you need to know that 10 of those wide receivers scored touchdowns. Watkins should be considered that WR4-type option you plug-in when there's an emergency and just hope he has one of those big games. But most of the time, you're left with something like four catches for 42 yards.

Samuel had 19 points against the LA Rams last week and he should have a prominent role against the Bills 8th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense. He is an upside WR3 due to his big-play ability.
