Watkins had been the Bills starter since Buffalo traded up five spots in the 2014 draft to select him with the No. 4 pick.
That move was subsequently followed by another corner-for-receiver deal.
Buffalo adding a couple picks is a nice component of these deals, and they also saved money. But this appeal could go into the middle of the season and into your fantasy playoffs.
Matthews, like Watkins, faced his own battle with injuries. The abundance of draft picks allows Buffalo to secure a safe selection in one of the deepest draft classes in recent memory, with the likes of USC's Sam Darnold or OSU's Mason Rudolph giving solace to Beane's claim that the Bills will "try to win today and win tomorrow". Matthews went to Vanderbilt.
Matthews is listed at 6-3 and 212 pounds. During his rookie season, Watkins had 128 targets from Kyle Orton and E.J. He has played in 37 games. Manuel - neither of whom will be mistaken for Johnny Unitas - and managed to finish the year 18th in Reception NEP and 37th out 90 in Reception NEP per target among receivers with 50-plus target receivers. He has played in 46 games. He's one of only seven receivers in National Football League history to post 225 receptions, 2,500 yards and at least 19 touchdowns before his fourth season. All he needs is experience, better than below-average receivers around him, and a coaching staff that can teach him how to become a franchise quarterback. He has scored 19 touchdowns. And Matthews is a very good receiver.
That's all the past, though. Getting more from the passing game is vital. During his rookie campaign, Matthews had 67 catches for 872 yards and eight touchdowns.
Danish submarine owner accused of causing Swedish journalist's death
The inventor told authorities Friday that he dropped Wall off on an island in Copenhagen's harbor before the vessel sank. Madsen said "a minor problem with a ballast tank turned into a major issue" that ultimately caused the submarine to sink.
But who is going to stretch out an opposing defense? They could either use those picks to build a quality roster or package a few of them to move up. As players and coaches, they coach and we play. Having more consistent receivers will likely be a good thing for the Bills.
"I don't think its added responsibility".
Let's look at the situation in LA now, where Watkins will certainly bring some sexy to a team that wasn't lacking in that department. Goff was taken first overall in the 2016 draft for a reason and is still only 22 years old.
Sitting at the bottom of nearly every offensive category had resulted in a 4-12 record and left rookie quarterback Jared Goff battered and bruised.
But, again, he was a rookie. Jared Goff, in many circles, has already been written off as a bust. They, along with Tyler Higbee, Tavon Austin and Pharoh Cooper, would provide much-needed weaponry for Goff. He's a game-breaker in every way, but the Rams have struggled to find the right role for him.
The Rams need playmakers for an offence that finished last in the National Football League over the past two seasons.
Trump Cautious on China Inquiry Over Intellectual Property Theft
President Trump plans to call for an investigation into China's intellectual property practices, according to reports Friday. The vote passed with unanimous support from all 15 member nations, including Russian Federation and China.
The challenge for the Bills will be whether they can curb his well-documented gunslinger tendencies.
Robert Woods, who spent the last three seasons playing opposite Watkins in Buffalo, signed in LA earlier in the offseason.
The biggest victor, of course, is Goff.
In dynasty, the quarterback situation got a lot brighter.
