Sammy Watkins 'frustrated' with role in Los Angeles Rams' offense

Los Angeles Rams' Sammy Watkins runs a route as Dallas Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown defends during an NFL football game Sunday Oct. 1 2017 in Arlington Texas

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Sammy Watkins has only caught one pass for 17 yards over the past two weeks.

After the Bills selected quarterback EJ Manuel in the first round of the 2013 National Football League draft, Buffalo traded up to the No. 4 overall pick to select star Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins the following year with the hopes of providing the young passer with a dynamic weapon. "I don't know a player, a wide receiver, that's not frustrated throughout the game if you're not getting the ball". Each week, it could change. "They had certain coverage that kind of took me out of the game, and that's part of the game".

"Like I said it's different looks - different looks that they're giving us and sometimes they do a great job of taking away looks".

"Sometimes you think you're open and sometimes you are open, but when you watch film critically and look at film - certain things happen, sometimes on me, sometimes of the line, sometimes on the wide receivers", Watkins said.

With Goff not targeting Watkins all that often this season, many of his throws have gone in the direction of Robert Woods, Todd Gurley and Cooper Kupp. "I'm happy, I'm healthy, and my goal is just to put everything on film and just continue to stack up wins and win games". He has 14 catches for 211 yards and two touchdowns on the year, most of which came in Week 3 against the San Francisco 49ers.

"I think Sammy is a really important part of our offense", Goff said.

The deep ball that he appeared to give up on "wasn't an effort thing", Watkins said, adding that he simply reacted incorrectly to the way Seahawks safety Earl Thomas approached the play.

Actress Roja in Lakshmi Parvathi's role for Lakshmi's NTR
As I said earlier, changes in the state and important incidents in NTR's life began occurring after the entry of Lakshmi Parvathi. He said, "The depiction would primarily include the mental torture experienced by NTR at this crucial stage".

"I don't know", Watkins said. Not only has Austin failed to make that much of an impact in the passing game, but also the turnovers on special teams have been a major issue. "For me, it's just to keep on coming out each week and setting the standard as a wideout and just competing". Not many times like that are you able to get a special player like Sammy. "And hopefully me and Jared will start clicking".

Watkins caught 65 passes for 982 receiving yards and six touchdowns during his rookie year in which Kyle Orton, not EJ Manuel, was the team's starting quarterback for the majority of the season.

The Rams lost, and McVay, who calls the offensive plays, put the burden of Watkins' lacking targets on himself.

More troubling was a question Watkins couldn't answer.

"I think I've got enough money", Watkins said, smiling. "For me, I just want to have fun and ball".

"I'm just here and trying to help this team win game", Watkins added. "I think he's going to come out of this on the right side". It's a great team. I know where they're about to be at [in terms of success].
