Robert Woods - WRPosted 5/29/16 9:15pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods said he feels like he has his speed back this year and expects to be able to create separation from defenders.
Huddle Up: Woods' 2015 numbers (47-552-3) took a definite dip from his figures the previous year (65-699-5), but he could wind up as the Bills' No. 1 wideout if Sammy Watkins can't overcome his myriad health issues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/24/16 10:45am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is expected to be ready for Week 1, but the team doesn't have a target date for his return set, according to general manager Doug Whaley.
Huddle Up: Looks like it will be "leap of faith" time for those who want to spend a high fantasy pick on Watkins, as we won't likely see him much in the preseason.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 5/24/16 1:43pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (undisclosed) was absent from practice Tuesday, May 24, with an undisclosed injury. Head coach Rex Ryan wouldn't elaborate but added he doesn't think Clay's injury is serious.
Huddle Up: Doesn't sound like anything to worry about long term, but definitely keep an eye on Clay, whose first season in Buffalo ended on IR this past winter.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 5/23/16 12:08pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor expects more out of the offense because he has a year of experience under his belt, and he wants to open up the passing game.
Huddle Up: Notoriously conservative Rex Ryan might have something to say about how much Taylor opens up the offense, but he's right about being more effective in Year Two of operating the scheme. And with Sammy Watkins on the roster, the Bills certainly have good reason to do more than Ryan's beloved "ground and pound".
Charles Clay - TEPosted 5/22/16 3:56pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay is expected to be more productive in his second season with the Bills, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. More looks his way and better health are considered to be two key factors in what Buffalo hopes to be a better season for Clay.
Huddle Up: Clay started strong but had only one double-digit fantasy-point game after Week 4, but Year 2 for Clay -- and QB Tyrod Taylor -- in the Bills' system should bring a bump in production.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/17/16 1:17pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not expected to play in the preseason after undergoing foot surgery three weeks ago.
Huddle Up: At least this happened in the offseason, but it's not exactly encouraging news for Watkins owners who have seen the wideout battle multiple injuries in his two seasons in Buffalo.
Cardale Jones - QBPosted 5/10/16 1:05pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones has spent a lot of time with quarterbacks coach David Lee working on three- and five-step drops. 'At Ohio State I didn't really have a stance under center because I was never under center,' said Jones. 'I talked to (Lee) after practice and he showed me two things I was doing, which was showing up every once in a while. Those things were dropping my elbow and staggering my feet.'
Huddle Up: After attempting only 269 college passes, the fourth-round pick is truly a long-term project and it will take long-term injuries to Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel for the rookie to sniff the field in 2016.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 5/4/16 10:03am ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is a player the team wants to lock up with a long-term deal, and general manager Doug Whaley said Tuesday, May 3, he is 'supremely confident there's a chance' a deal will get done.
Huddle Up: The Bills haven't exactly gone out of their way to lock up Taylor, but with Cardale Jones as their developmental quarterback they'd love to buy at least a couple years out of their current starter. With Cordy Glenn's deal done there may be more wiggle room under the salary cap as well.
EJ Manuel - QBPosted 5/3/16 12:38pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel's fifth-year option was not picked up by the team.
Huddle Up: No surprise whatsoever as the former first-round pick is 6-10 as a starter with 521 career passing attempts in three seasons. And now with the selection of Cardale Jones in the fourth round, Manuel's 2016 backup role is possibly in jeopardy.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 5/1/16 2:09pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not receive a contract extension in light of the Bills drafting QB Cardale Jones. QB EJ Manuel's option is unlikely to be picked up, too.
Huddle Up: The Bills are getting a bargain with Taylor entering the second season of a three-year, $3,350,000 contract, but the QB can certainly put himself in a no-doubt position for an extension a year from now if he can build off his strong 2015 campaign.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 4/21/16 10:19am ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is the team's starter in 2016, and general manager Doug Whaley said the team wouldn't consider drafting a quarterback to compete with him in the first round of the NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: First, Whaley could simply be blowing the draft smoke we're so used to seeing this time of year. Or he could be wording his statement such that Taylor is the guy for this year but the Bills could be in the market for their quarterback of the future.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 4/21/16 10:19am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins arrived at offseason workouts Wednesday, April 20, after attending a youth camp the team was aware he was attending.
Huddle Up: Not that there was any panic with regards to Watkins' absence in Buffalo, but he's back so in case you were worried... all is good.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 4/19/16 10:05am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (groin) has been cleared to participate in offseason workouts after he underwent groin surgery this offseason.
Huddle Up: Woods offers a solid compliment to Sammy Watkins in the Bills' passing game, though on a run-first Rex Ryan team there isn't much fantasy value to the WR2 role.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 4/19/16 1:21pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was not present for offseason workouts Monday, April 18.
Huddle Up: The workouts are voluntary until the team's mandatory minicamp in June, but the reportedly healthy Watkins certainly wasn't showing much leadership or team commitment Tuesday by posting a Facebook photo of himself at North Carolina casino. Rex Ryan is refusing to comment on absent players, but it's definitely not a positive 2016 for the team's top wideout. Stay tuned ...
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 4/18/16 1:35pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he's working on cleaning up his footwork in the pocket this offseason.
Huddle Up: The Bills may be looking to trade Taylor and/or draft his replacement, but meanwhile he's working on improving his game. Bodes well for his fantasy prospects wherever he's quarterbacking next year.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 4/17/16 2:45pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy's alleged involvement in a fight with two off-duty police offers is being reviewed by the Pennysylvania attorney general's office.
Huddle Up: McCoy avoided charges, but he isn't out of the woods yet with this pending review, and -- of course -- the league's own investigation into the matter. Stay tuned ...
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 4/14/16 7:35pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Percy Harvin has told the Bills that he is retiring, according to a source.
Huddle Up: No surprise as various ailments, including a hip injury, have caused Harvin to miss a total of 36 regular-season games over the last four seasons, including 11 last year.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 4/12/16 10:31am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is unlikely to face discipline from the NFL for his role in a nightclub altercation in Philadelphia, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. The NFL continues to investigate the situation, but the belief is that McCoy won't be suspended. A lack of evidence in the case is working in McCoy's favor.
Huddle Up: The league has indicated they have no official decision yet, but all indications are that McCoy will be available to the Bills--and fantasy owners--when the 2016 season opens.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 4/9/16 12:23am ET
Updating on an ongoing story, free-agent WR Percy Harvin (Bills) is unlikely to play in 2016, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Harvin will only be 28 in May, but his injuries -- he's missed a combined 36 regular-season games over the last four seasons -- put his true football age much higher, and if he isn't able to play this coming season, that might be it, period, for his NFL career.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 4/7/16 10:54pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could be a trade target for the Denver Broncos, according to reports.
Huddle Up: Taylor and Broncos coach Gary Kubiak worked together in Baltimore in 2014, and the Broncos were interested in the free agent last offseason before he signed with the Bills. Taylor has one year left on his Buffalo contract, and while the Bills wouldn't appear to be interested in trade at the moment, stranger things have certainly happened.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 4/4/16 1:48pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy won't be charged in the nightclub incident, according to Philly.com.
Huddle Up: The lack of charges doesn't necessarily mean he'll escape an NFL punishment, but it does increase the likelihood he'll be available for fantasy use when the season kicks off in September.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 3/31/16 9:59am ET
Free-agent WR Percy Harvin (Bills) will definitely play in 2016, according to a source. Harvin has received several offers, including from the Buffalo Bills, his former team. He is undecided as to what he'll do yet, though, as he is looking for the right situation in what he believes to be his last opportunity to make an impact in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Anyone looking for a half-dozen games from a proven locker room cancer who needs the offense to design specific plays to get him the ball, Harvin's your guy.
Leonard Hankerson - WRPosted 3/27/16 2:47pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson will be one of several receivers in the mix for the No. 3 receiver spot in 2016, and beat writer Tyler Dunne believes having a full year to learn the offense will help Hankerson.
Huddle Up: Even if Hankerson emerges as the clear No. 3 WR option, keep in mind that he might be no better than the No. 4 or 5 pass-catching option in an offense which threw on a league-low 49.9 percent of its plays a season ago.
Leonard Hankerson - WRPosted 3/24/16 10:26pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson re-signed to a one-year deal Thursday, March 24. Financial terms were not immediately disclosed.
Huddle Up: Hankerson got off to a solid start last season in Atlanta before getting derailed by a hammy injury, and he now adds depth to a Buffalo WR corps which recently lost Chris Hogan to the Patriots. Hankerson, though, won't be a fantasy factor in the majority of leagues.
Greg Salas - WRPosted 3/20/16 2:26pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Greg Salas appears to be the favorite to replace departed WR Chris Hogan, who signed with the New England Patriots in free agency earlier this month.
Huddle Up: Salas may indeed see more targets, but he'll still be behind Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, Charles Clay and RB LeSean McCoy in the Bills' pass-catching pecking order.
Chris Hogan - WRPosted 3/15/16 10:17am ET
Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Chris Hogan's three-year, $12 million deal includes a $4.5 million roster bonus in 2016. He has base salaries of $1 million, $2.5 million and $3 million.
Huddle Up: Slide Hogan into the Patriots' receiver rotation alongside Julian Edelman and... well, alongside Julian Edelman. Should be plenty of opportunity with Tom Brady at the helm for Hogan to carve out a low-end fantasy helper role.
Chris Hogan - WRPosted 3/11/16 10:00am ET
Buffalo Bills restricted free-agent WR Chris Hogan is close to signing a three-year, $12 million offer sheet from the New England Patriots Friday, March 11. The deal has heavy guarantees, and the Bills will have five days to match. The offer sheet is structured as such that the Bills aren't expected to match the offer.
Huddle Up: Hogan contributed when given opportunities for the run-first Bills. He would likely see more balls in New England and could be a solid "steal from your own division" move much like Wes Welker a few years ago.
Chris Hogan - WRPosted 3/11/16 3:47pm ET
Buffalo Bills restricted free-agent WR Chris Hogan officially signed with the New England Patriots Friday, March 11, after the Bills declined their right of first refusal.
Huddle Up: Hogan has caught 77 passes for 876 yards and six TDs while only starting six games over the last two seasons in Buffalo, but he has landed in the right spot, signing with the WR-needy Patriots, who have shown they can turn lightly-regarded reserves and cast-offs into fantasy-viable performers.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 3/2/16 11:37am ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay restructured his contract Wednesday, March 2, which freed up $7.5 million for 2016. Clay has $13.5 million in dead money in 2017, $9 million in 2018 and $4.5 million in 2019 with a $9 million salary cap hit each year.
Huddle Up: Clay didn't make nearly the impact expected last season. That could change as Tyrod Taylor gets more comfortable with the Buffalo offense, but in the interim his restructure frees up cap space and makes it less likely he'll be a cap casualty this season.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 2/26/16 10:37pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay's contract has been restructured, according to general manager Doug Whaley. Financial terms were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated that Clay's $10 million roster bonus would be made into a signing bonus so the team could spread the cap hit over several years.
Huddle Up: Sounds like the two sides reached an amicable deal, and now Clay can focus on bettering his 2015 numbers (51-528-3) in year two with the Bills.
