QB change starting to benefit Sammy Watkins
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins failed to make much of an impact in Kyle Orton's first two games, but the pair showed a great rapport in Week 7 against the Vikings.

Watkins torched the Vikings for the best performance yet, as he set career-highs across the board. He was targeted by Orton 14 times in the passing game and hauled in nine of those passes for 122 yards and a pair of touchdowns. And he did that against a Vikings defense that had allowed the 13th fewest Fantasy points to opposing receivers this season and was coming off a game in which the Lions had just 64 yards from their receivers.

Consistency will always remain an issue with Watkins, just like with any rookie wide receiver. However, he now has 85-plus yards in two of three games with Kyle Orton under center, and is clearly a more dangerous weapon now. Even with the natural ups-and-downs, Watkins should be a solid starting option this season.

Sammy Watkins scores two TDs in Bills' Week 7 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins exploded for 122 yards and two touchdowns on nine catches in his team's 17-16 win over the Vikings in Week 7.

Watkins, whose 14 targets were more than double any other Buffalo player, caught a beuatiful 26-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to give the Bills the lead. However, the team fell behind in the second half, before the rookie receiver capped an 80-yard drive with his second score of the game and just one second left on the clock in the fourth quarter.

Watkins' big performance was his second 100-yard game of the season, and it was a nice rebound after being shut down by the Patriots the previous week. He'll look to keep rolling against the Jets' suspect secondary in Week 8.

Sammy Watkins looking for consistency
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Kyle Orton era has led to mixed results for Bills receiver Sammy Watkins, who will look to bounce back in Week 7 against the Vikings.

Watkins posted seven catches for 87 yards in Orton's first game, but hauled in just two passes last week. The Vikings present a mixed bag for Watkins, as they have had an up-and-down season against wide receivers. The Lions receivers managed just 6 Fantasy points per game last week against the Vikings, while the Falcons and Packers' receiving corps put up consecutive 30-point efforts against them.

The Bills don't exactly strike fear into the hearts of defenses with their passing game, so it is not clear if Watkins will be able to take advantage of the Vikings in Week 7. Consider him more of a No. 2 option at receiver for this game.

Darrelle Revis does Sammy Watkins in
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who appeared to have some kind of rapport with new starting quarterback Kyle Orton in Week 5, wasn't much of a factor Week 6 against New England. But that's largely because cornerback Darrelle Revis shadowed him the whole game.

Revis, who many considered to be the best defensive player in the NFL during his time with the Jets, still has shutdown potential and showed it against Watkins, limiting him to two catches for 27 yards. After the game, he called Watkins a rising star, and Watkins himself thought he played better than the numbers indicated.

"[Revis] was good off the press, but I thought I did great against the press," Watkins told the team's official website. "I beat him a couple of times off the press, I didn't get the ball."

With Watkins on Revis Island, Orton made heavy use of Robert Woods and Chris Hogan, both of whom went for 70-plus yards despite neither having go-to potential. With Revis out of the picture, Watkins should get a bigger piece of the action Week 7 against Minnesota.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins wasn't much of a factor during a 37-22 loss Week 6 vs. New England. Watkins, who was targeted just three times, finished with two catches for 27 yards in the loss.

Watkins was held without a score in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. The Bills are back in action Week 7 vs. Minnesota.
