Watkins: everything 'where it needs to be' in recovery

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins said recently that everything is right where it needs to be in regard to his recovery from left foot surgery, although that doesn’t mean that he feels 100 percent comfortable doing everything on the football field.

Watkins said that he feels like his foot is “healed” and that he’s doing plenty of things at full speed during his workouts with the team’s strength and conditioning staff. He’s taking his time with the rest in order to avoid a setback that could put his availability for the start of the season into question.

Fantasy Impact: 

He added certain things are full speed and certain things aren't, mostly meaning cutting off his left foot. He said he expects to be limited in his workload when camp starts before any restrictions come off. His final nine games of last season (5.4-100-0.78) gives him WR1 potential in 2016 provided he can stay healthy.
