Watkins has been battling pain in his surgically repaired foot since the season opener at Baltimore. He played just four days after the opener in the Bills Thursday night game against the Jets on Sept. 15th, but has not been on the practice field since.
The team's decision to shut Watkins down was anything but surprising. Head coach Rex Ryan said on Friday that he had "major concerns" that Watkins foot problem could be a long term issue.
Watkins can potentially return in Week 12, so he's droppable in most formats without an injured reserve slot. He's worth a stash in leagues with big benches, but the chances of Watkins coming back in Week 12 or Week 13 and being a big fantasy asset seem pretty slim. It's not out of the realm of possibility, however. In the meantime, Robert Woods seems to be the best bet for weekly PPR production in the Buffalo receiving corps. He caught six passes for 51 yards on eight targets last week, but historically hasn't shown much of a rapport with Tyrod Taylor. The loss of Watkins is a big blow to Taylor's 2016 fantasy stock, though he'll occasionally put up a big game given his explosive running ability and propensity to throw the deep ball. We wouldn't get too excited about Justin Hunter, though the change of scenery might be good for him. Once Salas gets healthy, he could be a PPR option, a la Cole Beasley.

Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 3. HC Rex Ryan said that the chances are “not real good” that Watkins will be able to play in Week 3. Even if he does play, it’s difficult to trust a player who was last seen hobbling around the field against the Jets. Apparently, Watkins’ foot was stepped on during the team’s walkthrough. (Really.) The Bills will likely turn to Marquise Goodwin and Robert Woods to replace Watkins, though Greg Salas will also be heavily involved.

Rex Ryan says likelihood is "probably not real good" Sammy Watkins will play Sunday, but Bills still holding out hope he can suit up. Ryan says Bills will still play him despite him not practicing this week.

Ryan first said it was a tear but quickly backtracked to say he wasn't sure of the severity.
(New York conducted a walk-through on Saturday)
T Oday Aboushi (shoulder), LB Antwan Barnes (knee), G Willie Colon (knee), WR T.J. Graham (neck), LB David Harris (shoulder), RB Chris Ivory (shoulder), S Jaiquawn Jarrett (calf), RB Chris Johnson (knee), C Nick Mangold (shoulder), LB Trevor Reilly (knee), WR Greg Salas (wrist), QB Geno Smith (right shoulder), CB Darrin Walls (calf)
DE Jarius Wynn (knee)
CB Ron Brooks (groin), RB Fred Jackson (groin)
K Dan Carpenter (right groin), WR Marquise Goodwin (ankle), WR Chris Hogan (hip), DE Manny Lawson (ankle), QB Kyle Orton (toe), RB Frank Summers (neck), G Kraig Urbik (shoulder), WR Sammy Watkins (groin)
Bills RB Fred Jackson is questionable. He's indicated he's going to play, but with the game now Monday night he becomes a bit more risky. It's not a great matchup against the Jets rush defense, but either way owners will need to be prepared just in case Jackson doesn't go. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown would at least be serviceable backups if needed. Also for the Bills, Watkins and Orton are probable.
