Sammy Watkins's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Sammy Watkins to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 75 projected fantasy points puts him at #35 behind Michael Gallup and ahead of Brandin Cooks. He has averaged 9.11 fantasy points in his past 14 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 8.4 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#33) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #36 ranked wide receiver. He is slightly underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 91%, he is the #36 most highly owned wide receiver. Sammy Watkins is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #26 fantasy position rank.

SAMMY WATKINS WEEK 8 AND 9 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Sammy Watkins is projected for 6.6 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #43 ranked wide receiver and a starter for most owners. He is listed as questionable which lowers his projection. This is projected to be a below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Josh Gordon but behind Danny Amendola. Week 9 will be better based on projected rank (#35). He is projected for 7.2 fantasy points.

SAMMY WATKINS IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $6K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $5K

He is projected for 8.2 FanDuel points and 10.2 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$990 short of $6K on FanDuel and -$739 short of $5K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
