  • Posted: 11/9/2018 9:10am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) on Friday, Nov. 9, was ruled out for the team's Week 10 game against the New York Jets.

    Huddle Up: For those in deep leagues were using the struggling Clay, you'll need to scrape the bottom of the barrel for another option this week.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 11:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: Clay probably will not be able to play this week if he does not practice this week. Owners in all leagues should keep him on the bench even if he is active for the game.

  • Posted: 11/8/2018 9:47am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) was working off to the side with trainers during practice Thursday, Nov. 8.

    Huddle Up: With 19 catches and no TDs in nine games so far, Clay hasn't been any kind of fantasy factor in the league's worst offense, and adding in a balky hamstring most definitely isn't going to help. Continue to look elsewhere for tight end help.

  • Posted: 11/7/2018 12:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: With 19 catches and on touchdowns through nine weeks we can continue to stay away from Clay for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 11/5/2018 1:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hamstring) is considered week-to-week, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Unfortunately, Clay is arguably on the worst offense in football and has done next to nothing this year. He can't be started even when healthy.

  • Posted: 10/29/2018 8:40pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay registered three receptions for 36 yards on six targets in the Week 8 game against the New England Patriots on Monday, Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Clay has failed to find the end zone in each of his eight games, and his yardage total was actually the second-highest in a single game this season. That tells you a little about how his fantasy value is going. He has been a low-end TE1 in the past, but he isn't worth rostering in most leagues at this point.

  • Posted: 10/21/2018 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught three passes for 14 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been held to 20 yards or less in four of the last five games and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues until he is more productive in the passing game.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 6:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay hauled in four receptions for 20 yards on five targets in Week 6 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a useful fantasy option in the past, but he has not jelled with either Josh Allen or Nathan Peterman and is a fantasy afterthought this season. The Bills meet the Colts in Week 7 in Indianapolis.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 9:07am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (non-injury) received a veteran's rest day off practice Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: No injury worries for Clay right now, but that still doesn't mean he's a usable fantasy options outside of deep leagues as he's caught all of nine passes for 99 yards and no TDs on 15 targets in five games so far.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 1:42pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay had just one catch 12 yards on his only target in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Clay has posted two or fewer catches in four of his five games this season, and he has managed 29 or fewer yards in four of five outings, too while also being blanked in the touchdown department. He has been a low-end TE1 in the past, but the Buffalo pass game is struggling so much that he is not even in the TE2 conversation right now.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 12:16pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 5, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Clay appears to be on track to play this week, but owners will need to check the inactive list. He is coming off his best game of the season but only posted four catches and 40 yards. Owners should be able to find better options to use and can avoid Clay.

  • Posted: 10/4/2018 9:06am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) missed practice Thursday. Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Clay is not trending in the right direction after being listed as limited in practice the previous day. But even if he is able to play in Week 5, Clay is nothing more than a low-end TE2/desperation streaming option.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 1:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Clay is nursing an ankle injury, but we'll know more about his status on Friday when the official injury designations are given. Clay posted season highs with four grabs, six targets and 40 yards, but he still has a ways to go to get out of the low-end TE2 neighborhood.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 1:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay finished with four receptions for a team-high 40 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: It was that kind of a day for the Bills offense, as 40 receiving yards leading the team is not likely to win very many games. The Packers defense blanked Buffalo in this one. Buffalo will look to bounce back in Week 5 against Tennessee, but treat Clay as a low-end TE2 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 10:33am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (shoulder/hip) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 28, and is listed as questionable for the Week 4 game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: If you've been using Clay outside of deep leagues, it's time to look elsewhere for a tight end given Clay's health concerns and low usage (eight targets, four receptions) so far.

  • Posted: 9/28/2018 7:57am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (hip, shoulder) will be limited in practice Friday, Sept. 28. He had a maintenance day the previous day to give him a better shot to play in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Clay is a backup devoid of a lot of upside in fantasy right now.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 9:18am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (shoulder, hip) was not seen on the field Thursday, Sept. 27, during the media-viewing portion of the team's practice.

    Huddle Up: With only four catches for 47 yards on eight targets so far in the Bills' limited passing game, Clay was well off he tight-end radar in the majority of leagues, and that's even without health considerations.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 3:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught two passes for 29 yards against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Clay could become a security blanket for Josh Allen in the weeks to come but is not a strong fantasy option at this point. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end at this point.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 5:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was held without a catch on two targets in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: It was a disaster all around for the Buffalo offense, as they slipped behind 40-0 in this one before registering their first score. Until there is consistency at the quarterback position, avoid Clay in all but the deepest of fantasy formats. The Bills host the Chargers in Week 2.

  • Posted: 6/23/2018 9:08pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay should finish with around 50 catches and 600 receiving yards in 2018, according to Jay Skurski of the Buffalo News.

    Huddle Up: Clay has topped 500 yards in each of the last five seasons, and while he isn't the flashiest option by any means, he is a decent TE1 option if you wait until late in your draft to address the position.

  • Posted: 1/7/2018 2:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay racked up three receptions for 15 yards on five targets in the AFC Wild Card playoff game Sunday, Jan. 7, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Clay was a useful TE1 in most fantasy leagues until his mid-season knee injury sent him off the rails. He was obviously able to return, but he was never the same. He could enter 2018 as a nice sleeper, as some fantasy owners bitten by injury or his poor stats after his return might be terribly quick to draft him. Clay still finished with 49 receptions, 558 yards and two touchdowns in the regular season.

  • Posted: 1/5/2018 1:05pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 5, and is not on the injury report for the Wild Card playoff game.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a solid option in the passing game over the last several weeks and should receive a decent amount of targets this week. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/5/2018 7:26am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) will be a limited participant in practice Friday, Jan. 5.

    Huddle Up: Clay had 20 catches for 200 yards in five December games, and he had 27 targets in the final three games. He could be a sneaky TE1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars in playoff leagues.

  • Posted: 1/4/2018 12:24pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a popular target in the passing game over the last month and should have a solid role against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/3/2018 2:16pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 3.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been dealing with knee problems for most of the season but should be in uniform for the Wild Card game. He has been targeted 27 times over the last three games and has at least 60 yards in two of those games. He has a tough matchup this week but could be a low-end No. 1 fantasy tight end.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 12:13pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 29, but is not on the injury report for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been targeted 19 times over the last two weeks and has recorded nine catches and 105 yards during that span. He should have a solid role in the passing game against the Miami Dolphins and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 12:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been dealing with a chronic knee issue for most of the season but should be on the field in Week 17. He probably will see a decent amount of targets in the game and has a chance to be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 3:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been targeted 19 times over the last two games and appears to be one of Tyrod Taylor's favorite targets. He has posted more than 40 yards in only one of the last four games but could still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 6:45pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay ended up with four receptions for 37 yards on 10 targets in Week 16 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Clay is finally rounding back into form after showing some rust in his first few games back from a knee injury. He has been targeted 19 times over the past two games, catching nine for 105 yards. He is a decent low-end TE1 heading into the regular season finale.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 4:18pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 22, but is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a bit inconsistent with his receiving yards recently and was limited to 20 yards in the last game against the New England Patriots. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in some deeper leagues, but owners could be able to find better options.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 1:00pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been on the injury report for most of the season because of the knee injury but has been able to play. He is coming off a solid Week 15 performance and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues this week.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 3:35pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Clay is coming off a solid 68-yard performance in Week 15 and was targeted nine times during the game. He should have a similar role this week and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/17/2017 4:55pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay finished with five receptions for 68 yards on nine targets in Week 15 against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Clay had his best game since returning from a serious injury, and he can be trusted again as a low-end TE1 heading into Week 16 against the Patriots.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 12:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been quiet over the last several weeks with 27 yards or less in four of the last five games. Owners in all leagues probably can find better options to use and can avoid Clay this week.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 12:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Tyrod Taylor's return makes Clay's fantasy prospects more promising, but Clay has essentially had just two quality games all year. Over the last six weeks he has averaged a paltry 27 yards without a touchdown. Keep him benched.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been relatively quiet since returning from a multi-week injury, putting up stat lines similar to those a TE2 would post. He hasn't found the end zone in five games since his return, and he has just 14 catches for 131 yards during the span.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 2:45pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught two passes for 11 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Clay received limited targets because of the snowy weather but should be move involved next week against the Miami Dolphins. He can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues in Week 15 but can also be benched if owners have better options.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 4:54pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Clay continues to play despite the injury but has been limited to 31 yards or less in four of the last five games. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options and can avoid Clay.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 1:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Clay has dealt with the injury for most of the season but has been able to play. He should have a decent role in the passing game not matter the starting quarterback but could be kept on the bench if owners have a better option available.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay racked up three receptions for 20 yards on his three targets in Week 13 against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been mostly ineffective in his three games since returning from a knee injury. Perhaps he isn't 100 percent, and the shaky quarterback play hasn't helped him either. Avoid him outside of the deepest fantasy leagues heading into Week 14 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 9:09am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is active for Week 13's game against the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Clay was listed as questionable on the injury report but was able to participate in all three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He should be viewed as a somewhat risky TE2 for this afternoon's contest.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 12:51pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Clay is coming off a decent Week 12 performance and should be in uniform this week unless he suffers a setback. He probably will receive a handful of targets against the New England Patriots but should be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 1:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been slow to work his way back from a knee injury. He is playing, but performing at more of a TE2 level than at his pre-injury level. When 100 percent, he is the best receiving option in Buffalo right now, but he is a risky fantasy play at this point.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 2:27pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught four passes for 60 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been dealing with a knee injury for most of the season but has been a decent option for the Bills. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense in Week 13 and probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 8:57am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is active for Week 12's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Clay had been listed as questionable on the injury report after being a limited practice participant all week. He has only topped the 50-yard receiving mark twice this season and should not be viewed as a great fantasy option this afternoon.

  • Posted: 11/25/2017 8:50pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is listed as questionable to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 12, but he is expected to play, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Clay has topped 50 yards twice all year. He can be avoided in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/24/2017 12:10pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 24, and is listed as questionable for Week 12.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check the inactive list to see if Clay will be able to play in Week 12. He has been held to only 40 yards in the last two games combined and probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 11/23/2017 1:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been dealing with the injury for most of the season but was able to play in Week 12. He has recorded at least 50 receiving yards in only two games this season and should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 11/22/2017 2:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 22.

    Huddle Up: Clay has struggled since coming back from his injury, but instability at the quarterback position with two different starters hasn't helped. Tyrod Taylor is back under center and Clay continues to have low-end TE1 potential especially since he really is the only viable option in the pass game right now.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 7:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay posted three receptions for 27 yards on four targets in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Clay is slowly working his way back into shape after missing a huge chunk of the season due to injury. He has TE1 ability when he is 100 percent, but suspect quarterback play and rust makes him more of a TE2 right now.
