Bills elevate Sammy Watkins to 53-man roster

The Bills elevated Watkins from injured reserve to the 53-man roster Saturday prior to the 4 p.m. deadline.

Watkins practiced all week on a limited basis and was listed as questionable for the game on Friday, but Ryan gave strong indication that the team’s top receiver will be in the lineup on Sunday.

“I think he’s good to go,” said Ryan. “He won’t have a full workload, but we’re definitely going to get him in there.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Watkins has been away from most on field football related activities for two months, so the week of practice was an adjustment. Sunday’s game will be another adjustment as well for Watkins as he hasn’t played since Week 2. Even though he got a good number of reps in practice this week, Watkins was on a pitch count. So the opportunity to repeat plays were limited. Watkins will likely be on a pitch count in Week 12 but one would think he'll be on the field in the red zone. Watkins is just 76th on our list and goes against the Jags who are 10th in allowing fantasy points to WRs.
