Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins caught an early 42-yard touchdown pass, but failed to add much to it over the final three quarters.
Insight: Watkins continues to be boom-or-bust player as rookies frequently are. He ended up with three receptions for 75 yards.
 
12/14/2014 5:59:00 PM
Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins had one catch for 28 yards.
Insight: Watkins continues to be boom-or-bust as last week he gained 127 yards on seven catches. He is too unreliable to start in standard leagues with the playoffs on the line.
 
12/8/2014 11:08:00 AM
Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins didn't let a hip issue keep him from posting solid fantasy numbers.
Insight: Watkins was always expected to play in Week 14 and caught seven balls for 127 yards against a pretty good Denver defense. He's been inconsistent, as rookies usually are, but he's a keeper in all dynasty leagues.
 
12/7/2014 3:15:00 PM
Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins (hip) is active for Week 14.
Insight: Watkins was always expected to play in Week 14, but it's a tough matchup and his upside will be limited by likely seeing a lot of Aqib Talib.
 
12/1/2014 4:33:00 PM
Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins apparently suffered a hip injury during Week 13.
Insight: He played all 66 offensive snaps, so we do not know when he was injured. Watkins should be fine for Week 14, but owners need to keep an eye on his status throughout the week.
 
11/30/2014 6:19:00 PM
Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins was disappointing again in Week 13.
Insight: Watkins caught just three passes for 11 yards, which can probably mostly be contributed to the fact Joe Haden was covering him a majority of the day. Look for Watkins to rebound versus the Broncos.
 
11/24/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Bills wideout Sammy Watkins did not do much on Monday.
Insight: He saw only five targets and caught three of them, for 35 yards. Look for Watkins to rebound in Week 13.
 
11/19/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: The Jets and Bills contest for Week 12 at Ralph Wilson Stadium is still expected to begin at 1 PM ET on Sunday, despite the threat of a severe snowstorm.
Insight: There is expected to be seven feet of snow on the ground by kickoff, but for now it is scheduled to start on time. If there is a change, the NFL will most likely announce it by Thursday afternoon.
 
Cold11/14/2014 9:29:00 AM
Description: Bills receiver Sammy Watkins caught only three passes for 32 yards.
Insight: He was targeted seven times, but Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes basically took him out of the game. Watkins is still dealing with a groin issue.
 
11/9/2014 5:42:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Sammy Watkins caught only four passes in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.
Insight: He was hampered by a groin injury, and produced only 27 yards. Watkins will look to get back on track Thursday against Miami.
 
11/9/2014 11:51:00 AM
Description: Bills receiver Sammy Watkins (groin) is active against the Chiefs.
Insight: Starting Watkins is a tough call, as he pulled his groin this week in practice. With six teams on a bye, owners most likely will not have great options to replace Watkins, but should temper expectations on Sunday.
 
11/7/2014 12:13:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Sammy Watkins (groin) did not practice Thursday or Friday so we can't call him anything better than questionable.
Insight: He re-tweaked his groin during Wednesday's practice and could not finish the session. Most still expect him to play Sunday, but it would have been more comforting if we saw him on the practice field Friday. Fantasy owners who plan on starting him will have to wait for inactives an hour before game time to be sure he's a go.
 
11/6/2014 2:36:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Sammy Watkins (groin) did not practice Thursday.
Insight: He re-tweaked his groin during Wednesday's practice and could not finish the session. Most still expect him to play Sunday, but it will be more comforting if we see him on the practice field Friday.
 
11/5/2014 2:47:00 PM
Description: Bills receiver Sammy Watkins (groin) was limited on Wednesday.
Insight: He re-tweaked his groin during practice and could not finish the session. This is not a good sign, but before we jump to any conclusions, we will await word to see if Watkins returns to practice on Thursday or Friday.
 
10/26/2014 5:27:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins had a nice afternoon, but made a big rookie mistake on Sunday.
Insight: Watkins had three catches for 157 yards and one touchdown, but fantasy owners will be talking about his 84-yard reception in the second quarter, as he thought he had a walk-in score. However, Watkins was caught from behind, leading to a two-yard Frank Summers touchdown-run.
 
10/19/2014 6:40:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins caught nine passes for 122 yards against the Vikings in Week 7.
Insight: Owners were likely frustrated with Watkins' poor performance against New England last week, but he was stuck on Revis Island. Back on the main land now, Watkins lit up the Vikings cornerbacks. Kyle Orton and Watkins seem to have great chemistry and it is getting better every week.
 
10/13/2014 5:29:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins caught just two passes for 27 yards in Week 6.
Insight: After seven catches in Kyle Orton's first start, Watkins was pretty disappointing as he failed to score three fantasy points. Who knows which receiver Kyle Orton will favor next week. On a positive note, Watkins could have struggled having to face Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis. Next week's matchup with the Vikings should be easier.
 
10/8/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins is no longer on the Week 6 injury report.
Insight: Watkins is fully recovered from his rib injury according to ESPN. Watkins, however, has a tough matchup going up against Darrelle Revis and the Patriots this week.
 
10/5/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins caught seven balls for 87 yards in Kyle Orton's first start with the team on Sunday against the Lions.
Insight: Watkins led the team with 12 targets, which is a great sign since it appears Orton and Watkins have chemistry after just one week of practice. The receiver is still boom-or-bust but perhaps he will get more opportunities with Orton throwing to him.
 
Cold10/5/2014 12:19:00 PM
Description: Bills rookie receiver Sammy Watkins is starting against the Lions on Sunday.
Insight: With veteran quarterback Kyle Orton, we would temper the expectations for Watkins this week, but apparently the new quarterback and Watkins have built some chemistry in the short time working together. Watkins' production can't get much worse than it was with E.J. Manuel.
