Sammy Watkins is headed to the NFC West

Sammy Watkins traded to NFC team

When you are Bills #General Manager Brandon Beane these days, justifying yourself is going to be hard.

In a short manner of hours Friday, the fantasy football landscape seismically shifted as the Eagles traded Jordan Matthews to the Bills, the Bills traded Sammy Watkins to the Rams and the NFL announced it was suspending Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games this season. He might need to clarify a few items in order for #Fans to believe him. The shakeup continues an offseason overhaul under new coach Sean McDermott and GM Brandon Beane.

In a separate deal, another high draft choice, the 2015 second-round pick, Ronald Darby, was sent to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for wide receiver Jordan Matthews and Philadelphia's third-round pick in 2018.

It appears that the Bills are building for the future, as they now hold the Chiefs' 2018 first-round pick, the Rams' 2018 second-round pick, and the Eagles 2018 third-round pick. Watkins joins Woods and slot receiver Cooper Kupp in three-receiver sets, putting Tavon Austin's role on the team in serious question. If guys like that, two starters including one who was a No. 4 overall draft pick just three years ago, can be dealt, then anybody is in play.

Sammy Watkins was the only starting receiver left from last season before Buffalo shipped him to the Los Angeles Rams on Friday.

Matthews will not be the deep threat Watkins was, as the No. 11 projected receiver, but he will command possession as he has made more than 220 catches in his first three seasons and will be valuable in a PPR league. Darby was considered their top cornerback on the depth chart. He had 183 tackles while playing for the Tigers and eight interceptions.

Trump Criticizes McConnell for Failure to Advance Health-Law Reform
McConnell added, "I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process". The remarks came after Trump attacked the Senate majority leader in several statements on Twitter in recent days.

Beane made comments that the team is not throwing away this season and immediately looking to the future. Buffalo would also include a 2018 sixth-round pick in the deal.

I think the biggest victor in these deals is quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

The smarter play is to avoid this situation at all cost and just draft someone you can count on for the whole season. He finished second on the Rams in rushing yards past year (albeit with only 149 yards on the season) and third in receiving yards with only 509.

Beane also mentioned Matthews' leadership as something that he will bring into the Bills locker room. In 2016, Watkins was never himself.

Declining the fifth-year option on Watkins' rookie deal in the spring was the writing on the wall from McDermott and Buffalo's rebuilt front office that he wasn't part of the plan beyond this season. However, Beane's comments are a sign of #False Hope. If he can shake off his freshman fiasco of a season and take a page out of the books of Troy Aikman and Peyton Manning, who also struggled during their rookie seasons and eventually became Hall of Fame quarterbacks, Goff could make fantasy owners that draft him in the latter rounds feel like lottery winners. All signs point to a rebuild, and there is nothing wrong with giving fans that closure for the season.
