PFF: Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins a Top 10 Gamebreaker

Sammy Watkins showed that he could be a gamebreaker in 2015.

When you think of gamebreakers on the Buffalo Bills, the first name that should come to mind is wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Buffalo's No. 1 wide receiver started the 2015 season slow due to injuries, but few wide receivers were more productive over the final nine games of the year. Over that course of time, Watkins caught 49 passes for 900 yards and seven touchdowns. 

Pro Football Focus recently published a list of the NFL's Top 10 Gamebreakers and Watkins came in at No. 9.

The Bills have one of the best quarterback-to -receiver deep connections in Tyrod Taylor and Sammy Watkins. Taylor hit a number of bombs to his favorite wideout, connecting 16 times from 34 attempts (47.1 percent catch rate). Watkins managed 606 deep yards, good for second in the league, as well as eight touchdowns, which led the NFL. His combination of speed and body control make him an ideal downfield threat. Although Watkins was not as effective after the catch as some of his peers (five broken tackles, 3.0 YAC average), he regularly breaks games open by threatening defenses over the top.
