Bills WR Sammy Watkins finishes rookie season with 57 yards in win
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins had three catches for 57 yards in Buffalo's 17-9 win over the Patriots. His best play of the day being a 43-yard completion from quarterback Kyle Orton, where he nearly broke free for a touchdown.

Watkins, who was the third overall draft pick in 2014, came up just short of 1,000 yards for the year, finishing with 982 yards on 65 catches.

He had over 100 yards receiving in four games in 2014.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins scores 42-yard TD vs. Raiders
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins caught just three of his seven targets but racked up 75 yards and a touchdown in his team's 26-24 loss to the Raiders in Week 16.

Watkins hauled in a 42-yard pass in the end zone for the first score of the game in the first quarter but was held relatively in check over the rest of the day. His touchdown was his first since the end of October. The rookie is up to 62 receptions, 925 yards and six touchdowns. He'll be looking for a 1,000-yard season when the Bills head to New England in Week 17.

The madness continues for Sammy Watkins
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Both Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard really liked Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins for Week 15 against Green Bay. And why not? He was coming off a 127-yard performance against the Broncos and facing a Packers defense that had just given up 259 yards to Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones.

So naturally, he goes for just 28 yards, catching one of the six passes thrown his way.

What gives? Hey, that's the way it's gone for him all season long. Prior to his 127-yard performance in Week 14, he had averaged just 26.3 yards in four games.

One reason is he has Kyle Orton throwing him the ball, and Orton isn't all that reliable, his 158 yards in Week 15 giving him less than 200 in three of the last five weeks. Another is that every week someone like Robert Woods or Chris Hogan steals the spotlight, presumably because Watkins is well covered. Defenses know he's a threat, after all. Orton was more to blame in this one than the rest of the Bills' receiving corps, but it's one thing or another with Watkins.

I said it after his Week 14 performance, and I'll say it again: Regardless of the matchup, you just can't trust Watkins in Fantasy. You start him if you need to gamble on a big week, but in all likelihood, you have more consistent options at wide receiver.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins takes step back in Week 15 win
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

A week after establishing a couple of franchise rookie records, Bills wideout Sammy Watkins was held in check during Sunday's win over Green Bay in Week 15.

Watkins came down with 28-yard grab in the second quarter and was held without a grab the rest of the way. He was targeted six times in a 21-13 victory. 

Watkins has 59 catches for 850 yards and five touchdowns through 14 games. He has two games remaining to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark his rookie season. Buffalo will face Oakland in Week 16.

Bills receiving corps really annoying
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

So basically everyone who catches passes for the Bills had a big game Week 14 at Denver ... except for the only one who was putting up numbers before then.

Robert Woods, who had four catches for 71 yards in Week 13 and nine catches for 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 12, had only three catches for 36 yards in this one. Sammy Watkins led the way with seven catches for 127 yards, but that's what he's supposed to do. He hadn't done it the last four weeks, but Fantasy owners will take it at Woods' expense.

They may balk at Chris Hogan catching seven passes for 54 yards and a touchdown out of nowhere, though. He first entered the picture with a couple big games earlier in the year but faded into the background the last couple weeks with a combined four catches for 13 yards. Granted, one of those catches went for a touchdown, but those flukes will happen from time to time. As far as Fantasy owners knew, Hogan wasn't part of the plan, but Woods was in a major way.

So which of these three can you trust? Honestly, none. Watkins is supposed to be the standout, but he had averaged just 26.3 yards in the four games prior to Week 14. You start him if you need to gamble on a big week, but in all likelihood, you have more consistent options at wide receiver.

Kyle Orton is a productive enough quarterback for one of these three to make a splash every week, but since you won't know which one, you shouldn't be counting on any of them in 12-team leagues.
