Scouting Report

Week 11 at Los Angeles Rams

Sammy Watkins has had a decent season, but as is always the case with him, injuries have played a factor. He was inactive last week, making it essentially two games he's missed with injuries. He should be fine to return this week and get back to what he was doing before getting hurt. In the three games prior to being inactive, Watkins was averaging 81 yards per game.

Against the Rams, Watkins can be viewed as a high-end WR3. We expect this to be a high-scoring game, and Watkins has had a solid role while healthy this season. He has the ability to take advantage of the Rams' defense which has allowed 11 pass plays of 40+ yards this season, a league high.
