(Before It's News)

by William Cheung

Every fantasy season bye weeks represent a wealth of opportunities. One such opportunity for 2016 comes in the form of Sammy Watkins, as he has been dropped in 15% of ESPN leagues since going on IR and is available in 56% of leagues. If he is available in your league, he is worth stashing for week 12 when he is eligible to return.

When healthy, he averaged 14 fantasy points in 9 games coming out of their bye week last year. This kid can play ball, albeit prone to injury. The good news is that this week it was reported that he won’t need surgery on his foot and he is expected back this season, at some point.

Also, his schedule could feature four games at home and five questionable secondaries (depending on when he is deemed healthy enough to return). Consider these stats:

At 3-2, the Bills are a wildcard contender so they will play hard until the last game of the season. They will certainly put Watkins to use if he is healthy. All in all, he might represent a sneaky opportunity to own a WR1 for playoffs if you can afford the roster spot. Good luck!
