2017 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Watkins was a complete bust in 2016 as many Fantasy owners drafted him in the second and third round in 12-team leagues. He only had one game of value (7/154/1 on 10 targets). He missed eight games leading to only 28 catches for 430 yards and two TDs on 52 catches. His demise was due to a foot injury that required a pair of surgeries. Buffalo expects him to be ready for training camp. In 2015, he had a 25 percent drop in targets (96) compared to 2014 (128). Watkins delivered a solid WR2 season (60/1047/9 or 194.2 Fantasy points - 14.93 Fantasy points per game). His catch rate (62.5) was much improved over 2014 (50.7) while adding more length to his catches (17.5). Sammy had five 100 yards receiving games over his last nine starts with growth in his targets in four of his last six games (10, 4, 12, 10, 6, and 15). Over his last nine games of 2015, Watkins caught 49 passes for 900 yards and seven TDs on 78 targets. This projected over 16 games would be 97/1600/12 on 139 targets. There is a new coaching staff, so play calling will change. Sammy is a high upside WRs with big play and scoring ability. He just needs to stay healthy. His low output in 2016 will lead to him being discounted.
