Sammy Watkins sits out Wednesday, status unknown for fantasy owners

The Buffalo Bills wide receiver plans to test his foot out in practice sometime this week. We break down fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins did not practice Wednesday as his surgically repaired foot continues to ail him, reports SirusXM radio’s Vic Carucci. Watkins has been battling soreness in his injured foot since camp. There appears to be no structural issues with the foot, but the third-year WR was inactive for the Bill’s Week 3 matchup against Arizona. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Watkins plans to test out his foot at some point this week and his ability to go is only about pain tolerance at this point. Watkins’ status for Sunday’s division matchup with the New England Patriots remains unknown.

Fantasy Impact: Watkins’ surgically repaired foot has hindered him greatly this season. Before being sidelined in Week 3, Watkins had only six receptions for 63 yards in the first two weeks of the regular season. With no way to gauge Watkins’ ability or pain tolerance, look for Robert Woods and Greg Salas to play bigger roles in Week 4.
