is getting frustrated with the limited amount of targets he is getting in Buffalo this season and discussed it in-depth with the media on Thursday.

“Everybody looks at you getting zero catches, zero yards but when you look on film 90 percent of the time you’re open,” said Watkins via the Buffalo News. “I understand that these guys are young and they need some time to trust me. Once we get that trust, it’ll be different. But for me, I need the ball at least 10 times — I need 10 targets — and I’ll be fine with however many yards I get. And that’s what I addressed in talking with my agent. We reached out to a couple people and tried to pull some strings like, ‘Hey, I need my targets. You came up to draft me and I’m not getting targets — that’s a problem. You’re making me look bad and you’re making yourself look bad. Why not make both of us look good?’”

Watkins wants Tyrod Taylor to throw the ball up to him when there is only one defender around him.

“That’s what I get mad at,” Watkins said, “When I don’t get looked at. I can look at film and his eyes go straight that way and I’m not getting looked at, at all. That’s when I get frustrated. When I have one-on-one coverage, go to me. I don’t care what’s going on over there. I don’t care if he’s open. When I get one on one, just target me.”

Watkins has seven receptions (12 targets) for 99 yards and a touchdown in three games this season. He has been sidelined the last two games with a calf injury.
