Last week, Sammy Watkins found himself named to the NFL's Top 100 players list.
This week, the Buffalo Bills wide receiver was named to Pro Football Focus' Top 101 list. The analytics site began their countdown of the NFL's Top 101 players from 2015 and Watkins made the list at No. 95. Here is what PFF had to say about Watkins:
95. Sammy Watkins, WR, Buffalo Bills (unranked)
There may have been more impressive raw statistical performances from wide receivers out there, but Watkins posted an impressive receiving grade and averaged 17.5 yards per reception in 2015. At times he was short-changed by the rest of the offense, as passes didn’t quite get to him even after he did excellent work to get open, and the trouble he gave Darrelle Revis in both of their matchups this season really encapsulates the improvement in his game from one year to the next.
Best performance: Week 13 versus Houston: +3.5 grade
Key stat: Watkins had the second-most yards from deep passes (20-plus air yards) in the entire league at 606 yards.
Watkins finished the 2015 season with 900 yards receiving over his final nine games. In 2016, he'll look to pickup where he left off. Watkins proved to be one of the NFL's best deep threats in 2015 and the best is yet to come for the receiver.
