Fantasy Analysis | 1411338988
A lot of targets, a little bit of stats for Sammy Watkins
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Though the two grabs for 17 yards won't help those Fantasy folks who started Sammy Watkins, the eight targets from quarterback EJ Manuel should be enough to not bail on the rookie receiver anytime soon. Manuel said after the game the Chargers didn't try to take Watkins away but rather applied enough pressure on Manuel and took away crossing routes to diffuse the offense in general.

Of note: Six of eight targets were considered deep passes from Manuel, a very telling sign that the Bills want to get Watkins involved deep down field. 

Watkins should definitely be in the conversation as a borderline No. 2/No. 3 Fantasy receiver next week at Houston (especially with so many receivers on bye). If you follow the targets then eventually you won't be disappointed with Watkins.

Sammy Watkins silent following breakout
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins failed to make much of an impact Sunday against the Chargers in Week 3, coming off his breakout performance.

Watkins, who had eight receptions for 117 yards in his previous game, was locked up by the Chargers secondary all game long. He was targeted eight times but brought in just two of those passes for 19 yards in the 22-10 loss.

Watkins has had an up-and-down start to his career, but has 167 yards on 13 receptions through three games. He will look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Texans.

Ribs can't keep Sammy Watkins out
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is active and in uniform for Week 3 against the Chargers, as expected Sunday, as he continues to play through a rib injury.

He is coming off a breakout performance in his second NFL game, after recording eight catches for 117 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Dolphins last Sunday.

Sammy Watkins dealing with 'nagging' injury
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is dealing with a "nagging" rib injury, according to ESPN.

Watkins was looked at by trainers during Week 2, but was listed as a full participant in practices prior to Week 3. Despite that, Watkins admits the injury is still there. "It's something that you can play with," he said. "Hopefully it stops. Whenever it stops, I'll be fine. But right now I just have to play through it."
