Baltimore Ravens WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: This is the way things have been trending all week. It also sets the stage for rookie first-rounder Rashod Bateman to make his pro debut. As impressive as Bateman was during training camp (reportedly) and how good he has looked in recent weeks, it is possible he will remain the starter even after Watkins is able to return. Bateman should be picked up in any leagues he is still sitting on the wire, and most fantasy managers should be able to drop Watkins.

Baltimore Ravens WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the Week 5 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation to see if Watkins will be able to return or if he will be sidelined for a period of time. Marquise Brown is the only Ravens receiver that should be a starting option at this point, but Rashod Bateman and Miles Boykin could be options in the future.

Huddle Up: The veteran is known for stepping up his play in the early season only to be a fantasy tease over the long haul. He heads to Denver for a matchup that isn't favorable enough to strongly consider Watkins in traditional lineups. He is a fringe flex play for desperate owners.

Huddle Up: Watkins led the team in targets, which is a great sign. He also averaged 24.0 yards per reception, which is also very good. Fantasy players can trust him as a WR4 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Ravens host the Kansas City Chiefs, a former team of Watkins, in Week 2.

Baltimore Ravens WR Sammy Watkins (undisclosed) has missed the last few practices because of an undisclosed injury, but head coach John Harbaugh said the team is holding him out of practice so he can be close to 100 percent for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Watkins has struggled with injuries during his career, so fantasy players should check on his practice participation leading up to Week 1. He should be a top-three receiver for the Ravens this season but probably will only be a depth receiver in most fantasy leagues.
