Bills' Sammy Watkins: Coach wants him to see the rock
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Coach Rex Ryan says he'd like to see more passes thrown Watkins' way, The Buffalo News reports. "We've got to find ways to get him the football," Ryan said this week, "because he is that talented and that's a challenge to our staff. Even our quarterback. Let's get Sammy Watkins involved more and regardless of what people play because he is such a talent."

The ledger for Watkins receiving more looks now has Ryan, Watkins, Watkins' agent, and about seven million Bills fans on its side, but sometimes that's easier said than done. While the Bills have better offensive weapons this season, there's still a decent drop-off between Watkins and his fellow receivers. So he almost always sees the opponent's best cover man, or blanket coverage, or both. The team used Chris Hogan effectively for an entire game against the Patriots to combat this, so eventually Watkins might see not only more looks, but effective ones. Tyrod Taylor, as good as he's been, still struggles with his passes sometimes and his improvement in gaining more rapport with Watkins can only help boost the second year receiver's numbers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patrik Elias played 14:50 over 20 shifts in his first game of the season Wednesday night, the North Jersey Record reports. He spent 5:32 on the power play.

Elias didn't dent the score sheet, but did get two shots on goal and had two other attempts. "I thought it was a good first game for Patrik to come back," New Jersey Devils coach John Hynes said. "He looked good. He looked quick. I thought he was really smart the way he managed his shifts. He didn't overextend himself, he got a little bit of special teams action (and had a) strong work ethic. For being off that long and the time he put in, he looked pretty good out there tonight."
