It looks as though Watkins is one of the rookies best positioned to make a fantasy impact in 2014. He'll get playing time right away, by virtue of his presence on a Bills offense lacking in big-play threats. Still, fantasy players should be careful not to over-draft Watkins based on glowing reports from camp, especially given the depth at the WR position around the NFL this year. Watkins is currently ranked 39th out of all WRs, but is being taken 21st among WRs in drafts, .
