2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Can Watkins be an immediate difference-maker for this offense? If he lives up to some early comparisons, yes. Prior to the draft, NFL Films' Greg Cosell said he considered Watkins the best wide receiver prospect to enter the league since A.J. Green and Julio Jones in 2011. Both of those players gained more than 1,000 total yards and put up WR2-worthy fantasy totals as rookies. Buffalo didn't trade up to draft Watkins and then trade Stevie Johnson just to let Watkins sit and learn. He will be thrown into the fire and looked at as the team's No. 1 wideout from the get-go. His level of first-year success is largely tied to Manuel's own improvement, but he should see enough targets to make 1,000 yards a distinct possibility. It should also go without saying that he is one of the top picks in dynasty drafts.

Editor's note: If there was one thing Manuel could do in college, it was throw screen passes. This limitation might actually work in his favor with Watkins due to the receiver's uncanny skills after the catch. Lots of potential here; it just may take a season to full ripen.
