Sammy Watkins News
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who has played a full regular season just once in his career in his rookie season in 2014, isn't a lock to make the team's final roster out of training camp. Watkins last surpassed three touchdowns and 14 games played in a season in 2017, when he played in 15 games and caught eight touchdowns for the Los Angeles Rams. Head coach Matt LaFleur was the offensive coordinator in LA that year, and Watkins has also been coached by wide receivers coach Jason Vrable. Last year, Watkins had 27 catches for 394 yards and a touchdown in 13 games for the Baltimore Ravens. If Watkins stays healthy, he could be the No. 2 outside receiver behind Allen Lazard, and he could help replace the deep-ball prowess lost when Marquez Valdes-Scantling left in free agency. But depending on whom the Packers draft at the position, there's a chance Watkins might not even make the roster.
Free-agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins agreed to a one-year, $4 million deal with the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, according to a source. The Packers had Watkins in for a visit on Thursday, and it didn't take long for the two sides to reach an agreement. Green Bay will likely address the position in the draft this month as well, but Watkins will help make up for the loss of star wideout Davante Adams, who was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders this offseason. Watkins is still only 29, but he's only played in one full season (his rookie year in 2014). He also hasn't been much of a fantasy asset since his only 1,000-yard season in his sophomore year with the Buffalo Bills. Watkins could be more intriguing while teaming with quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but fantasy managers won't be investing much in the oft-injured wideout.
The Green Bay Packers are hosting free-agent wide receiver Sammy Watkins on a visit on Thursday, according to sources. The Packers are still very much in the market for more receiving help after trading Davante Adams, arguably the best receiver in the league, to the Las Vegas Raiders earlier in the offseason. As of right now, Allen Lazard and veteran Randall Cobb are quarterback Aaron Rodgers' top two targets in the passing game. Watkins is still only 28 years old, but he's done very little in terms of fantasy production since his first three seasons with the Buffalo Bills in 2014-16. In 13 games (nine starts) for the Baltimore Ravens last year, Watkins had 27 receptions for 394 yards and one touchdown on 49 targets. He'd have more appeal in Green Bay, but he wouldn't be a guarantee for solid weekly production.
