Sammy Watkins' presence will be a downgrade for Robert Woods' fantasy production.
Woods was never hugely appealing for fantasy purposes with Jared Goff as his quarterback, but at least his volume was relatively safe with little to no competition for targets. That all changed in one fell swoop Friday when the Rams acquired Watkins in a blockbuster trade with Buffalo. Woods is all too familiar with Watkins, having spent the last three years playing beside him in Orchard Park. Even with Watkins constantly injured, Woods never topped 700 yards receiving in those three seasons and that was with Tyrod Taylor, who has proven to be far superior to Goff, under center. Once considered a dart-throw WR4, Woods can probably go undrafted in most formats now. Aug 11 - 1:34 PM

Robert Woods said he wants to be the "No. 1 receiver."

It is an achievable goal. Woods played a secondary role in Buffalo, but he is in position to see a much larger target share atop a Rams depth chart filled with young and complementary players. Almost certain to lead the team in targets, Woods has the look of a late-round value pick in PPR formats.

ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez believes WR Robert Woods is "perhaps the best bet to lead the 2017 Rams in catches".

The Rams signed Woods to be Jared Goff's primary target after letting Kenny Britt walk. Woods is spending extra time with Goff before OTAs, working on routes and timing and studying fil. The WR64 in MFL ADP, Woods is a solid flier at the back end of drafts. He should see 100-plus targets as the Rams' default WR1.

Rams agreed to terms with Robert Woods, formerly of the Bills, on a five-year, $39-million contract.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal contains $15 million guaranteed. It is a nice chunk of change for a receiver who has never topped 700 yards in a season, but that will likely change in what could be a pass-heavy attack under new coach Sean McVay. Even with Woods locked up, the Rams need to add more weapons to the passing game.
Mar 9 - 11:17 AM

Impending free agent Robert Woods said he is content with the No. 2 role in Buffalo.

"Sammy [Watkins] deserves being the number one," Woods said. "As long as we are progressing, moving the ball down the field and making plays, I have no problem with that." The comments suggest he is open to re-signing with the Bills, who have no receiving talent behind Watkins and Woods. The former second rounder has averaged 51 catches for 613 yards and three touchdowns his four years in Buffalo.
Feb 25 - 9:10 AM

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia ultimately expects impending free agent Robert Woods to price himself out of the Bills' range.

The Bills have a ton of free agents (23 to be exact) to make decisions on, and they're obviously not going to be able to re-sign everybody. On top of that, Buffalo is currently in the bottom 25 percent of the league in available cap space. Woods hasn't been all that productive since being a 2013 second-round pick, yet he's likely to command $7-8 million per year on a new deal due to inflation of the salary cap. The Bills need weapons, but they should aim higher than Woods.
Feb 7 - 8:59 PM

Robert Woods delivered four catches for 43 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bills' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Woods entered the league with huge expectations following a standout college career at USC. Since then he’s been an enormous letdown, failing to top 700 yards in any of his four seasons. Woods had a few productive weeks including a monster Week 9 that included 10 catches for a career-high 162 yards in a loss to Seattle. But those moments were few and far between. Woods also missed a chunk of the season while battling a knee injury. He could definitely use a change of scenery and will probably get one when he hits the free agent market this offseason.
Jan 1 - 4:41 PM

Robert Woods caught 3-of-6 targets for 43 yards in the Bills' Week 16 loss to the Dolphins.

It was an improvement on Woods' recent production. He has a golden Week 17 matchup in the Jets.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said re-signing Robert Woods will be "at the top of our list" in the offseason.

Woods, the 2013 second-rounder, is slated to become a free agent in March. He definitely hasn't lived up to his draft billing, but Woods has proven a steady presence out of the slot with good mitts. Woods probably would have set new career bests in yards and catches this season had he not missed time with foot and knee injuries. He has just 12 touchdowns through 55 games.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 10:12:00 AM

Robert Woods caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Browns.

Woods might as well have been inactive for this one. The Bills don't have a usable pass catcher behind Sammy Watkins.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 06:38:00 PM

Robert Woods caught 1-of-3 targets for 29 yards in the Bills' Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

Woods had one of his targets bounce off him and into the arms of CB William Gay for a pick-six that was later called back on holding. Woods slipped on the snowy turf on his route and fell to the ground. With everyone healthy in Buffalo, Woods has settled back in as a low-upside, low-floor WR4. Sunday was his first game back from a two-week knee injury.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 06:45:00 PM

Robert Woods (knee) is active for Week 14 against the Steelers.

He's back after missing the previous two games following a Week 11 injury. With Woods and Sammy Watkins active, Woods is nothing more than a WR4.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 11:37:00 AM

Robert Woods (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Steelers.

Coach Rex Ryan said the receiver is "ready to roll." Woods does not have much of a ceiling with Sammy Watkins (foot) also back healthy, but he could return WR4 value.

Robert Woods (knee) practiced again on Friday.

Woods should return this week, although his role is questionable with Sammy Watkins getting closer to full health. Woods will be a low-ceiling WR4 against the Steelers.
Fri, Dec 9, 2016 10:52:00 AM

Bills coach Rex Ryan is "hopeful" Robert Woods (knee) will return against the Steelers in Week 14.

Ryan likes what he's seen from Woods at practice this week. OC Anthony Lynn also anticipates Woods playing, though he isn't sure how much. Woods has missed the last two games with a sprained knee. With Sammy Watkins back, he's merely a WR3/4.
