Sammy Watkins on being frustrated with his role in the Rams' offense

Does Watkins, a former 1,000-yard receiver who was expected to be a top target for Jared Goff, see a way to increase his role in the Rams' offense?

"As a player, of course you're going to be frustrated", Watkins told the L.A. Times on Wednesday.

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.

"Definitely want to try to get him more involved", Goff said, "but by no means are we, or am I, going to change the approach, play in and play out".

By at least one measure, Watkins has been the Rams' most efficient receiver. I think what was going on was I was a little concerned about just giving up too much not knowing what our quarterback situation was. He has caught passes on 14 of his 20 targets, a 70-percent rate that is the best of any Rams receiver or tight end this season.

Watkins also says his frustration has nothing to do with the fact that he is up for a new contract this coming offseason. And now that Austin has proven that he doesn't have what it takes to handle the responsibilities of a return man on special teams, the Rams just continue to waste money on the wideout when looking at the lack of production in numerous areas. It's a great team.

"Those guys are great players, but leave no doubt, we've got a great room", Watkins said. I know where they're about to be at [in terms of success].

This week, it's Jacksonville, which leads the National Football League in interceptions and arguably has a better secondary than the Seattle group the Rams just faced.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - Sammy Watkins realizes the size of his next National Football League contract depends partly on his numbers for the Los Angeles Rams this season. "We're going to compete. Hopefully everything will start working out".

NOTES: Pharoh Cooper will replace Tavon Austin as the Rams' punt returner after Austin's two-fumble misadventures against Seattle.
