He posted his 15th worst game fantasy football wise out of 146 career games. Sammy Watkins and the Rams faced the Dallas Cowboys and won 35-30. Watkins was targeted twice with only 1 reception for 17 yards. Watkins posted one of his worst games fantasy wise as he only put up 2.7 points in PPR leagues.
