Player Profile
Sammy Watkins (BUF)
High Risk (94%)
Player Overview

Even if returns to the field for Week 1, he’ll retain a ton of in-season risk. Since entering the league in 2014, he’s underwent surgeries to his hip and foot. Watkins has also missed time with calf and ankle injuries. Just 23 years old, he’s already earned the “injury prone” label. Buffalo showcases a low-volume passing attack, but when healthy, Watkins has flashed game-changing upside as a workhorse. Still, unless his ADP drops into the range of Round 6 or 7, we’d safely pass.
