Bills WR Sammy Watkins didn’t have a major impact on the game Sunday, but did play a role with three receptions for 31 yards in the overtime win. The Bills top draft choice admitted he was a bit limited by his sore ribs.
“I felt like I shot off pretty well. Coach called a great game; they managed the game. I was kind of held back from the ribs injury, but still overcame and had two or three big catches that moved the drive and played well.”
Watkins actually played 54 snaps, which was 95 percent of the total on offense (57) in the game. No other receiver, tight end or running back logged more snaps than Watkins. Robert Woods came closest with 52 snaps for 92 percent of the offensive play total.
It's good news Watkins was able to play a majority of snaps but he's clearly not 100-percent. His performance was out-shined by rookies like Brandin Cooks and Kelvin Benjamin in terms of fantasy production.
As for the Buffalo RBs, C.J. Spiller played on 30 snaps while Fred Jackson saw 26 snaps. Spiller ended up with 15 carries to Jackson's seven. Both caught three passes but one of Spiller's went for a TD.
