Bills Place Sammy Watkins On IR - Is Jets Eric Decker Next?

The Buffalo Bills have placed WR Sammy Watkins on IR with a foot injury, keeping him out of action until at least week 12.  Tyrod Taylor was already trending downward, but now has no reason to be owned in 12 or even 14 team fantasy football leagues.  Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin are his top receivng targets and they just added Justin Hunter for depth.  I would expect the Bills to feed LeSean McCoy as much as possible.

Watkins was the 14th WR drafted in Yahoo leagues with an ADP of 27.

The Jets could also be losing a huge piece of their offense as Eric Decker deals with a shoulder injury.  He has already been ruled out for week 4 against the Seahawks. Should Decker miss significant time, Brandon Marshall will be the focus of opposing secondaries, which mean Quincy Enunwa could become a very productive fantasy football bye week filer. Expect Ryan Fitzpatrick to dump it off to Matt Forte a ton, when he is not throwing interceptions.
