Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ribs) should be fine for Week 1 - [Full Article]

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that Bills WR Sammy Watkins came out of Thursday night's preseason loss to the Lions without a serious injury to his ribs, per a source informed of the team's situation. The feeling from the Bills is that Watkins should be good to go for Sunday's opener against the Bears.

Fantasy Impact: 

Watkins has looked great in practice, but it hasn't translated to games, thanks to QB E.J. Manuel's shaky play. We still like Watkins as a third or fourth receiver and feel that he'll be a target hog in the Bills' run-heavy offense. If Manuel can progress (at all) Watkins should be a fantasy starter (top 36) as a rookie.
