Rams WR Sammy Watkins frustrated with role

Thursday, October 12, 2017, 11:36am

LA Daily News - [Full Article]

When asked by reporters if he sees his role in the Rams' offense increasing, a frustrated Sammy Watkins honestly said, "I don't know."

“As a player, of course you’re going to be frustrated,” Watkins went on to say. “I don’t know a player, a wide receiver, that’s not frustrated throughout the game if you’re not getting the ball. Each week, it could change. They had certain coverage that kind of took me out of the game, and that’s part of the game.”

Fantasy Impact:

Watkins and his fantasy owners are both frustrated. It's been more bust than boom for Watkins this year in his first season as a Ram. He has had one extraordinary performance—catching 6-of-7 targets for 106 yards and 2 TDs in Week 3 vs. the 49ers—but he's combined to catch 8-of-13 targets for a measly 105 yards and 0 TDs in his other four games. It was an especially demoralizing performance last week that saw him catch 0 of his 4 targets against the Seahawks. In another extremely tough matchup this week against the Jaguars, we have Watkins ranked outside the top-40 of WRs in both standard and PPR leagues. You might want to look elsewhere for WR help in your starting lineup.

Scouting Report

Week 7 vs. Cardinals (game in London)

Sammy Watkins caught 1-of-4 targets for 11 yards in the Rams’ Week 6 win over the Jaguars. Welcome to the bottom of the fantasy barrel. Watkins has 2 catches for 28 yards over his past three games. Since his 28-point effort in Week 3 against the 49ers, Watkins has scored 2.7, 0.0, and 2.1 points per game in PPR formats. Considering he’ll see plenty of Patrick Peterson in London on Sunday when the Rams take on the Cardinals, you can avoid Watkins again in Week 7.
