What You Need to Know:

  • Watkins, a bit of an NFL nomad, will play for his 5th team in 7 seasons.
  • Last year in Baltimore, Watkins made 13 appearances, snagging only 27 of 49 targets for 394 yards and 1 score.
  • He started hot, posting 4-96 in the opener and hitting 4 catches in each of the first 4 games. He benefited from the absence of Rashod Bateman, though.
  • Watkins would hit 4 catches only once going forward. He sat out 3 games with a hamstring injury, played through a late-season knee issue and missed 1 game on the COVID list.
  • In total, Watkins’ yards per route run (1.45), drop rate (12.9%) and catch rate (60%) all fell below career averages.
  • Green Bay took a 1-year flier on Watkins. He reportedly considered retirement before signing on.
  • Watkins doesn’t lack confidence but admitted in June that health will be key to any sort of rebound. Said the 29-year-old: ”When I’m on the field, I can ball, I can catch balls, I can score and I’m a dominant player. But the key is staying on the field.” He hasn’t played a full season since 2014.
  • Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling leave ~240 vacated targets behind. But Green Bay also added 2 rookies (Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs) to join a returning tiro of Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers.
  • HC Matt LaFleur said at minicamp that Watkins will be a “big part” of the offense. So there’s at least some buzz on a guy who’s struggled with sustained success over the past ~6 years.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Watkins hasn’t finished inside WR3 range since 2015. His opportunity for starting snaps is clear on a Packers squad that just lost Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

But will he mesh with Aaron Rodgers? And can he stay healthy enough to perform for fantasy managers? We’re skeptical, but with an ADP in Round 21, there’s zero risk in best ball leagues.

Devin Duvernay, WR BAL

Duvernay to IR, Ravens bring back Watkins

Ravens WR Devin Duvernay has been placed on IR with a foot injury he suffered in Tuesday's practice. It's unclear if he has a shot to return when first eligible for the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but his regular season is over. Baltimore added WR Sammy Watkins in a corresponding move. Watkins spent last season with the Ravens but mustered just a 27-394-1 line across 13 games. He looked equally washed with the Packers this season. Watkins joins Demarcus Robinson, DeSean Jackson and James Proche in the WR corps.

The Packers are waiving WR Sammy Watkins, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Watkins hasn't caught a pass since Week 10 and is expendable with rookie WR Romeo Doubs set to return vs. the Rams tonight.

Packers WRs Sammy Watkins (knee) and Christian Watson (concussion) are not listed on the final Week 10 injury report. They figure to operate as Green Bay’s #2 and #3 WRs vs. Dallas this weekend with WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) sidelined.

Packers WR Sammy Watkins (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It looks like he'll be available for this weekend's game vs. the Cowboys, but Watkins would be a desperation fantasy play.
