Los Angeles Rams Acquire WR Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills

Sammy Watkins traded to NFC team

And while the Sammy Watkins news will generate the biggest headlines, sending the team's former first-round pick to the Rams, the other deal sends ripples into the wide receiver depth chart as well. He has scored 19 touchdowns.

But Watkins returned to Bills drills in the middle of June and looked good while making four catches for 39 yards in limited time during Thursday's preseason opener.

Matthew seemed miscast as a WR1 previous year in Philadelphia, but he was also working with an inconsistent rookie QB. We know Elliott is elite and will come back as an asset for your team.

"Definitely surprised", said quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Boldin, too, who after racking up 24 red-zone targets with Detroit previous year, is in position to continue to be a goal-line beast while adding more work between the 20's. When the weather goes to hell in Buffalo, Taylor should be able to get the ball out quickly and keep the chains moving.

The team is replacing Kenny Britt, who was the first Rams receiver to cross the 1,000 yard mark (by two yards), since Torry Holt in 2007.

There's no hiding the fact that Goff was horrendous in his rookie season. He completed under 55 percent of his pass attempts and threw seven touchdowns to only five touchdowns. This should allow the Rams and RB Todd Gurley to establish a running game more efficiently than a year ago with an upgraded receiving core and offensive line. There were certainly other factors at play, but McVay's hiring presents reason for hope in the Rams' offense. He's a game-breaker in every way, but the Rams have struggled to find the right role for him.

Heat become first National Basketball Association team with mobile-only entry
With this move, the Heat would become the first National Basketball Association franchise to make the shift to mobile tickets.

This is the No. 1 rushing offense in the league each of the past two seasons.

The Rams needed real receivers to open up space for Austin.

The challenge for the Bills will be whether they can curb his well-documented gunslinger tendencies.

Goodwin will see Watkins and Woods two-times per year in the NFC West after signing a 2-year, $6 million contract with the San Francisco 49ers.

Even as he missed eight games last season because of a foot injury that ultimately required surgery, Watkins still averaged 15.4 yards per reception, a threshold no Rams receiver reached in 2016.

The biggest victor, of course, is Goff. Woods, Watkins and Austin is a more interesting mix at the receiver position than the Rams has past year, should present more opportunities for the Ram's quarterback to make big plays, and should open up the field for Gurley. He's got a lot of Favre-esque tendencies to him.
