    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is considered week-to-week because of his knee injury.

    Huddle Up: Nick O'Leary probably will take over as the starting tight end while Clay is sidelined. He played well in Week 5 when he recorded five catches and 54 yards after taking over for Clay. Owners in all leagues should be able to find better options to use and can avoid O'Leary.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 10:28am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Monday, Oct. 9, and will miss multiple weeks with a torn meniscus and sprained MCL, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: It's a punch to the gut for a Buffalo offense already bereft of playmakers in the passing game, as Jordan Matthews is out with a thumb injury and Zay Jones struggling to get anything going as a rookie. The Bills do have a well-timed bye in Week 6, but Clay is obviously going to need more time in that. Nick O'Leary led the team with 54 yards receiving in Week 5 and will be considered the favorite to fill in for Clay during his absence. He's worth an add for all owners in need of a slight boost at tight end.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 6:33pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) suffered at least a sprained medial collateral ligament injury in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and there is a worry he might have a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament, too.

    Huddle Up: With Clay, the team's most explosive receiver, the wideouts will have to step up. They hadn't been doing so with Jordan Matthews down for at least a month due to thumb surgery. Nick O'Leary posted five grabs for 54 yards with Clay sidelined and could be the next guy up when play resumes for the Bills in Week 7 after the bye.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 12:13pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) will not return to the team's Week 5 game.

    Huddle Up: It appears that Clay may have a serious injury, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Nick O'Leary likely will start if Clay misses time but should only be considered a No. 2 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 10:55am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was carted off the field after suffering a knee injury during the team's Week 5 game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to determine the severity of Clay's injury. He has been a solid option for the Bills over the last few weeks but his status is uncertain. Nick O'Leary probably would take over as the starting tight end but would not have a lot of fantasy value.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 1:57pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (non-injury) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5, and is no longer on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Clay may receive a bigger role in the passing game this week with Jordan Matthews sidelined. He recorded 112 yards in Week 4 and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 1:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Clay should return to practice later in the week and probably will have a bigger role in the passing game in Week 5 with Jordan Matthews sidelined. He is coming off a 117-yard performance in Week 4 and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 4:28pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay posted five receptions for 112 yards on seven targets in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Clay failed to find the end zone but he was able to post a season-high in yardage. He has managed a total of 18 receptions through four games, with at least three catches in each game. Clay has re-emerged as a TE1 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 in Cincinnati.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 2:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay posted six catches for 39 yards and a score in Week 3 against the Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Clay didn't show any ill effects of the knee injury which had him on the injury report earlier in the week. He has scored two touchdowns through three games with at least three grabs in each outing. He has re-emerged as a low-end TE1 in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 at Atlanta.

  • Posted: 9/21/2017 12:18pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been targeted 12 times over the first two games of the season and has recorded seven catches, 76 yards and one touchdown during that span. He has become a solid part of the passing game but may not be a great fantasy option this week against the Denver Broncos.

  • Posted: 9/20/2017 1:18pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Clay was listed last week with a shoulder injury early in the week and he was able to play. So far he has seven grabs for 76 yards and a touchdown on the season. When healthy he can be a low-end TE1 when the fantasy matchup is favorable.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 3:46pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay managed three catches for 23 yards on three targets in Week 2 in Carolina.

    Huddle Up: Clay should be treated mostly as a TE2 in fantasy leagues, especially until Tyrod Taylor starts to show more consistency. Clay and the Bills offense face another tough matchup with Denver visiting in Week 3.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 8:02pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay set his goals for the season at 90 catches and 900 yards, and he said there is 'no question' that he can be an impact player for the offense.

    Huddle Up: Clay is coming off a solid performance in the season opener, and he could be a sneaky TE1 in Week 2 against a Carolina defense that allowed more than 900 yards and 12 touchdowns to tight ends last year.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 12:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Clay had a solid Week 1 performance and should continue to be an important part of the Bills' passing game. He will be facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense this week and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Posted: 9/14/2017 12:19pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Clay was a solid part of the passing game in Week 1 and finished with 53 yards and one touchdown. He should continue to see a solid amount of targets in the passing game and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end or a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 1:08pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 13.

    Huddle Up: Clay turned in one of the best stat lines at his position in Week 1, posting four catches for 53 yards and a touchdown. What's really promising is that Tyrod Taylor targeted him nine times. If he can keep up that kind of volume then we'll have no choice but to start viewing him as a starting caliber fantasy tight end.

  • Posted: 8/14/2017 2:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 14, because he received the day off.

    Huddle Up: Clay likely will receive practices off during the season because of his back but will be able to play as long as he does not suffer a setback. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.

  • Posted: 8/3/2017 3:18pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because he received the day off, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: The Bills are concerned about Clay's knee, so he probably will receive some practices off during camp as well as the regular season. He has posted some decent numbers over the last few seasons but is a risky fantasy option because of his knee. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 7/30/2017 2:16pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not participate in practice Sunday, July 30, because he was given the day off. Clay had been a full participant in the first three practices of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Clay probably will receive some days off during camp since the team is concerned about his knee. He has recorded at least 500 yards in each of his last four seasons but has not played 16 games in a season since 2013. He will have a role in the Bills passing game, but owners probably should consider him a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 6/30/2017 6:42pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) will have his snaps limited in practices this season to try to manage his chronic knee issues, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Clay is a coming off a 57-catch campaign that saw him average a career-low 9.7 yards per catch. Expect midrange TE2 production from him this season.

  • Posted: 5/25/2017 10:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay's (knee) ailing knee continues to be an issue. Head coach Sean McDermott said the knee is a concern to the Bills and something they'll keep an eye on going forward. Clay has participated in drills, but the Bills are taking a cautious approach with his workload.

    Huddle Up: Clay has 'only' missed four games in his two seasons with the Bills, but his production has not been up to par. He has not finished as a TE1 since 2013 with the Miami Dolphins and remains a TE2 heading into 2017.

  • Posted: 1/26/2017 10:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught all four of his touchdowns at home this season. He also caught those four touchdowns during the second half of the season.

    Huddle Up: Clay was a solid contributor in the passing game over the last part of the season and will continue to be the starting tight end for the Bills. Clay could be a low-end No. 1 or a fine No. 2 tight end for owners next season.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 2:57pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught three passes for 20 yards against the New York Jets in Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Clay had a disappointing Week 17 performance but did play well over the final four games. He could have a solid role in the passing game next season but should be considered a fine No. 2 tight end in drafts.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 9:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 17 game.

    Huddle Up: Clay has become a reliable option for fantasy owners over the last month and should be a solid target for EJ Manuel this week. Clay can be a fine No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 1:06pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

    Huddle Up: Clay has posted solid numbers over the last three weeks and should be a reliable target for EJ Manuel during the game against the New York Jets. Owners in most leagues should consider Clay as a solid No. 1 tight end.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 9:18am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a big part of the team's passing game over the last three weeks and has posted at least 52 yards in each of those games. He also has found the end zone four times during that span. He should be considered a solid No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 12:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a big part of the passing game over the last few weeks and has caught four touchdowns in the last three games. He should continue to have a decent role and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught eight passes for 85 yards and two touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been a big factor in the Bills' passing game over the last three weeks with 18 catches and four touchdowns during that span. He should have a favorable matchup in Week 17 and can be a No. 1 tight end for owners.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 7:40am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is expected to play in Week 16's game against the Miami Dolphins.

    Huddle Up: Clay was a limited participant in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report but has been able to play through this injury for a while. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in all fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 5:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Clay has suddenly become a legitimate weapon in Buffalo's passing attack, and he is worth a look as a low-end TE1 in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/8/2016 5:32pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been even less productive than usual lately, and he doesn't needing to be starting in any format.

  • Posted: 12/3/2016 10:49am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is listed as questionable but will not travel to face the Oakland Raiders in Week 13. Clay has chosen to stay behind to attend the birth of his child.

    Huddle Up: Clay has battled a lingering knee injury for months, robbing him of upside even when facing good matchups. Gerald Christian has been activated to fill in for Clay, but he has no value in Week 13. Look for more LeSean McCoy in the check-down game; Marquise Goodwin and Sammy Watkins should consume the deep-threat duties.

  • Posted: 11/12/2016 5:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay has been used in a variety of blocking combinations since Anthony Lynn became the offensive coordinator, but he is still looking for his first touchdown this season.

    Huddle Up: Clay continues to disappoint, and he shows no signs of breaking out. He has three catches or less in three straight games, and he has just 44 yards combined in that span. Look elsewhere for tight end help in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 4:30pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 9 game.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been able to play despite the injury and has been a pretty consistent performer this season. He could be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end this week even though he is facing the Seattle Seahawks defense.

  • Posted: 11/5/2016 12:15pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Nov. 5, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

  • Posted: 11/4/2016 5:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 4.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been on the injury report for the last several weeks but has not missed a game. He has been targeted at least five times in each of the last five games but still has not been able to reach the end zone this season. Clay may be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 7:00pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Clay is likely to play through injury as he has most of the year. The matchup isn't terrible, but Seattle has little else to focus on with all of these injuries, so avoiding Clay is advised.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 9:06am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is officially active for the team's Week 8 game.

    Huddle Up: Clay should have a solid role in the passing game in Week 8 with Marquise Goodwin and LeSean McCoy sidelined. He can be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end in most leagues.

  • Posted: 10/28/2016 2:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 2:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been receiving practices off for most of the season but has been able to play despite the injury. Clay has been a decent option for most owners and should continue to be considered a low-end No. 1 tight end.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 4:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay posted just two receptions for 29 yards in the Week 7 game against the Miami Dolphins, his former team. He was targeted five times.

    Huddle Up: Clay is a borderline low-end TE1 in fantasy leagues of 14 or more teams. He should see more looks with the wide receiver corps banged up.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 8:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) will play in Week 7's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Clay had been listed as questionable on the most recent edition of the injury report and was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 20, and Friday, Oct. 21. He should be viewed as a low-end TE1 in most fantasy formats, although he could see more targets than normal because WRs Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods won't play.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 1:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is listed as questionable for Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 3:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Clay actually isn't too shabby of a start this week, assuming he's able to go. Sammy Watkins is already out, LeSean McCoy won't be playing and Robert Woods looks pretty iffy. Clay is a fringe TE1 as he should see plenty of targets.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 4:01pm ET

    Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: Clay has been receiving Wednesdays off for most of the season, so this should not be a surprise. He likely will be able to play in Week 7 and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues because he has been consistent over the last few weeks.
