Analysis: Watkins was left fending for scraps with Jared Goff locked onto Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, much like he was for much of the regular season. Though the former Bills' top draft pick should fare better in 2018 with another year in the Rams' system, there's also the chance he remains a No. 3 receiver with more name than game.

Analysis: Watkins hasn't had more than three catches or 38 yards in any of his last four games, but he's scored a touchdown in six of his past eight. Though solely dependent on reaching the end zone for fantasy value, the talented wideout does get a seemingly favorable matchup next week against a 49ers defense he burned for 106 yards and two scores on six grabs back in September.

Analysis: Watkins came in with a touchdown catch in three straight games, each of which Robert Woods missed due to injury. With Woods back for this one, the former No. 4 overall pick went back to being mostly an afterthought. Watkins is a touchdown-dependent fantasy player in the Rams' scheme, though he has reached the end zone in five of the team's last seven contests.

Analysis: Watkins has a TD in three straight games so those owners of his in the fantasy playoffs might went to make sure he is in the lineup.

|Nov. 26, 2017 5:22 PM PT6:22 PM MT7:22 PM CT8:22 PM ET1:22 GMT9:22 6:22 PM MST8:22 PM EST7:22 PM CT5:22 UAE (+1)20:22 ETNaN:� - Sammy Watkins had four receptions for 82 yards and one touchdown Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 26-20 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Analysis: Robert Woods' shoulder injury has gotten Watkins back on the fantasy map, as the disappointing wideout had his most catches and receiving yards since Week 3 with his teammate unavailable. With Woods also expected to miss next week's game against Arizona, Watkins should be worth a play even if he'll likely draw Patrick Peterson's coverage much of the day.

Analysis: Watkins was targeted often during the Rams' first three games but has been seen little since. However, he's still a dangerous deep threat, as he showed against the Giants.
|Oct. 22, 2017 1:47 PM PT2:47 PM MT3:47 PM CT4:47 PM ET20:47 GMT4:47 1:47 PM MST3:47 PM EST3:47 PM CT0:47 UAE (+1)16:47 ETNaN:� - Sammy Watkins had three receptions for 42 yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 33-0 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Analysis: Watkins has been a huge fantasy disappointment with five catches over his last four games.

Analysis: Watkins had a big game last weekend, but had been placed in concussion protocol. Undergoing a full practice Thursday was a clear sign he would suit up.
|Sep. 22, 2017 9:27 PM PT10:27 PM MT11:27 PM CT12:27 AM ET4:27 GMT12:27 9:27 PM MST11:27 PM EST11:27 PM CT8:27 UAE0:27 ETNaN:� - Sammy Watkins had six receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns Thursday in the Los Angeles Rams' 41-39 win over the San Francisco 49ers, but left the game in the fourth quarter and was placed in the NFL's concussion protocol.
Analysis: It'd be a blow for both the Rams and Watkins' owners if he's forced to miss any time, as he was much more of a factor on this night after opening the season with two quiet games. The 2014 No. 4 overall pick's long-term fantasy prognosis is looking very bright, though, provided he's able to stay healthy.
|Sep. 17, 2017 6:33 PM PT7:33 PM MT8:33 PM CT9:33 PM ET1:33 GMT9:33 6:33 PM MST8:33 PM EST8:33 PM CT5:33 UAE (+1)21:33 ETNaN:� - Sammy Watkins had two receptions for 30 yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 27-20 loss to the Washington Redskins.
Analysis: While Watkins is clearly the Rams' most talented receiver, he still seems to be developing a rapport with Jared Goff after being acquired from the Bills during the preseason. There should be better days ahead for the 2014 No. 4 overall pick.
|Sep. 10, 2017 5:26 PM PT6:26 PM MT7:26 PM CT8:26 PM ET0:26 GMT8:26 5:26 PM MST7:26 PM EST7:26 PM CT4:26 UAE (+1)20:26 ETNaN:� - Sammy Watkins had five receptions for 58 yards Sunday in the Los Angeles Rams' 46-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
Analysis: It as a very solid Rams debut for Watkins, who caught all five of his targets. He would've had more opportunities but the game was out of reach in the second half so Watkins played sparingly. He should be primed for a very productive season in Los Angeles.
|Aug. 11, 2017 9:16 AM PT10:16 AM MT11:16 AM CT12:16 PM ET16:16 GMT0:16 9:16 AM MST11:16 AM EST11:16 AM CT20:16 UAE12:16 ETNaN:� - Watkins and a sixth-round draft pick have been traded to the Rams for cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round pick.
Analysis: Watkins has shown a lot of promise in his first three seasons since being the No. 4 overall pick in 2014, but he missed eight games last season with a foot injury. He's had a number of physical issues thus far, so it's hard to rely on him, but when healthy he's a legit No. 1 or No. 2 receiver.
|June 8, 2017 1:44 PM PT2:44 PM MT3:44 PM CT4:44 PM ET20:44 GMT4:44 1:44 PM MST3:44 PM EST3:44 PM CT0:44 UAE (+1)16:44 ETNaN:� - Watkins has been easing his way back to health after undergoing surgery on his left foot in January. Bills coach Sean McDermott announced that Watkins would work in a limited capacity Thursday after returning to individual drills two days ago during organized team activities.
Analysis: Watkins has been dealing with the injury bug over the last two seasons, forcing him to miss 11 games in that span. Watkins had surgery to repair a stress fracture that limited him to playing just eight games last season. He finished with 28 receptions for 430 yards and two scores in 2016. Watkins caught 65 passes for 982 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie. He set career highs of 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns in his second season when he had 60 receptions in 13 games.

The decision means Watkins will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2017 season.
Analysis: Watkins has experienced injury issues during his first three NFL seasons and played in just eight games last season due to a foot injury. Watkins, who turns 24 next month, was the No. 2 overall selection of the 2014 NFL draft and caught 65 passes for 982 yards and six touchdowns as a rookie. He set career highs of 1,047 yards and nine touchdowns in his second season when he had 60 receptions in 13 games. Watkins caught 28 passes for 430 yards and two scores in 2016.
