    Then why stop throwing to him? That's 13 of 14 targets!

    It reminded me of how people don't seem to notice baseball players loafing to 1st base on a routine ground out until there's a mishap that could render the runner safe if he hustled....

    I agree with Watkins. He is a play maker and we need to design plays that get him open. This in turn creates opportunity in other area's as well. move him to slot from time to time, keep the D guessing.

    WATKINS might have made "that catch."

    and if you don't like that see Dieterbrock, he has a free cat for you.

    Earl Thomas was running to cover the cross. He was moving the wrong direction. If Watkins had turned it on, there was nobody in the middle of the field.

    Watkins 'frustrated' about lack of targets in Rams' offense
    by Michael Amato 1h ago

    Receivers always want the ball.

    So it's understandable Sammy Watkins would be displeased about his role with the Los Angeles Rams' offense as of late, as the 24-year-old has only totaled one catch over his past two games.

    "As a player, of course you're going to be frustrated," Watkins told Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News. "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."

    Watkins broke out against the San Francisco 49ers three weeks ago with a pair of touchdowns and more than 100 yards receiving, but since then he's been virtually non-existent in the offense. Last Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks he was held without a catch for the first time in his career.

    "Definitely want to try to get him more involved," Rams quarterback Jared Goff said. "But by no means are we, or am I, going to change the approach, play in and play out. I'll go through the reads and hopefully he gets more touches."

    To Watkins' credit, he hasn't let his frustration become a distraction to the team and isn't concerned about his numbers this season impacting his next contract. He's happy to be with a Rams squad that appears to be on the rise.

    "I think I've got enough money," Watkins said. "I just want to have fun and ball. I want to be a part of this team. It's a great team. I know where they're about to be at (in terms of success). I just want to be a part of it and make plays and score touchdowns."
