Where Ezekiel Elliott and Sammy Watkins are moving in the rankings

Where Ezekiel Elliott and Sammy Watkins are moving in the rankings

Matthews immediately fills the void created by Watkins.

Let's start with Watkins and the Rams.

Just over seven months later, that to-do list is complete, the final item getting crossed off Friday with the addition of dynamic wide receiver Sammy Watkins in a blockbuster trade as shocking and surprising as it's expected to be impactful. He struggled mightily during his rookie year, but the arrival of new head coach Sean McVay has provided Goff with a system more fit for his skill set.

This is also a great opportunity for a young and still developing Jared Goff.

OXLEY:Watkins' Potential Impact in L.A.

"Sammy has proven he can be a productive player and an explosive receiver in this league, we look forward to having him in a Rams uniform", Rams general manager Les Snead said in a news release.

"I don't think its added responsibility".

The 23-year-old Darby totaled 69 stops and 12 passes defensed in 14 games with the Bills in 2016, which was also his second year in the league. Beane also pushed back against the idea that Buffalo is not putting the best team on the field in 2017 in order to move on from quarterback Tyrod Taylor and find his replacement in the draft next spring. But the increase is slight.

Beane was asked bluntly if these moves made the team better for this season.

Why is Matthews' outlook as bleak as a blustery December day in Buffalo?

However, Matthews is still a talented receiver who could be effective in the upcoming season.

Among 41 wide receivers with 100 or more targets last season, Matthews was 38th in Reception NEP, despite being 26th in targets and tied for 23rd in receptions.

All you have to do is compare Watkins's career stats to Matthews's to see that Taylor's fantasy value takes a hit as well.

They changed the latter component earlier today by trading for Sammy Watkins. The Ravens say offensive lineman Alex Lewis will miss this season with a shoulder injury and rookie Tim White will have season-ending surgery on his thumb.

Coming off the books in 2018 is defensive tackle Kyle Williams - who has a $7.4 million annual average salary - and center Eric Wood, who is likely to be replaced and on the wrong side of 30 averaging more than $6.3 million per season. Buffalo now has two picks in each of the first three rounds next year after acquiring the Kansas City Chiefs first-round selection in April.

Just as importantly, the trade brings some much-needed talent to a suspect cornerback group. 4for4 has Ertz projected for 70 catches this season and a top-10 finish at the position.
