Bills WR Sammy Watkins has shed his walking boot

Joe Buscaglia - [Full Article]

No more walking boot for Bills WR Sammy Watkins. He's watching from the sidelines today.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a good sign since we're still around six weeks from the start of training camp and there's two and a half months until Week 1. With the way he finished the season -- 5.4-100-0.78 over the final nine games -- he has WR1 potential in 2016 provided he's fully healthy, but that's far from certain. Our injury expert, Russell Manalastas recommends caution, saying "I still think it's going to be an uphill battle for him to be effective early on in the regular season...and he needs at least five to six months with no setbacks to feel confident that he's fully healthy." If he had the surgery in mid-April, then five to six months puts a full recovery in mid-September to mid-October.
