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.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 2/25/16 11:32pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay is close to finalizing a deal that would restructure his contract, converting his $10 million roster bonus into a signing and opening up cap space in 2016.
Huddle Up: The Bills are short of cap space and one of the first options is turning to Clay, who had three-year lows in receptions (51) and yards (528) in his debut season with the Bills.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/24/16 8:59am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy could miss several games to start the 2016 season and the Bills are planning as if that is the case. The investigation regarding a night club brawl in which McCoy was allegedly involved is ongoing. An arrest warrant could still be issued for McCoy.
Huddle Up: Better safe than sorry for the Bills; meanwhile, the fantasy value of Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee creep upwards.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/18/16 9:18am ET
The attorney for Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy said his client 'did nothing wrong' in a Feb. 7 brawl that sent two off-duty policemen to the hospital. No charges have been filed in the incident, which also involves three other men who were with McCoy and a third off-duty cop. 'We continue to investigate,' a spokesman for the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office said Wednesday, Feb. 17. A source close to the investigation said the district attorney's office would likely hold a press conference Thursday, Feb. 18, or 'Friday at the latest.'
Huddle Up: While this story seems to be fading away in the news cycle, it's unlikely to escape the watchful eye of league offices. Even if McCoy isn't charged, he could get dinged with a suspension for violating the league's conduct policy. And charges or a conviction could lead to a lengthier absence.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/12/16 1:32pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy could face charges next week, and he was definitely involved in the nightclub incident Sunday, Feb. 7, according to Philadelphia police captain Frank Banford. An arrest warrant could be issued before Wednesday, Feb. 17, according to a source. McCoy's attorney, Larry Krasner, said that McCoy will turn himself in if he's charged.
Huddle Up: Just the latest here on the ongoing bad-news situation with fantasy's seventh-best RB last season in terms of fantasy points per game.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/11/16 9:05am ET
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy might be served with a self-surrender by midweek, law enforcement sources in Philadelphia said Tuesday, Feb. 9.
Huddle Up: McCoy's little scuffle with police may end up costing him a game or two courtesy of the league's personal conduct policy--or worse if he faces charges.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/11/16 6:13pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy isn't expected to be served a warrant for his arrest Thursday, Feb. 11, a high-ranking police official told ESPN's Mark Schwarz. McCoy is part of an investigation into an alleged nightclub assault against off-duty police officers Sunday, Feb. 7.
Huddle Up: The McCoy situation has become the first hot-button topic of the offseason, and when all is said and done, don't be surprised if he slips out of RB1 draft range.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/9/16 7:25pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy's case was investigated by police and has been turned over to the district attorney's office, which is reviewing it for potential charges. McCoy was allegedly involved in an altercation that sent two off-duty police officers to a Philadelphia area hospital last weekend.
Huddle Up: Anything but good news and definitely something to keep an eye on here over the next few weeks.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/28/16 4:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor threw for 3,035 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns and six interceptions in his first season as a starter after spending four years as a little-used backup for the Baltimore Ravens. The first-time Pro Bowler, who added 568 yards and four more touchdowns as a runner, hopes 2015 was the first of many seasons in western New York. 'Of course, I want to be the long-term guy. I love playing for the organization, I love playing for the coaches, I love being around the guys. Like I said, I want to be the long-term guy for them. Ultimately, that's up to them,' Taylor said.
Huddle Up: Taylor certainly lived up to his fantasy-sleeper billing and then some, and even though we was unable to end the Bills' playoff drought, he was 8-6 as a starter and given the general lack of available QBs, the Bills have to be leaning to sticking with Taylor.
Percy Harvin - WRPosted 1/21/16 9:20am ET
Buffalo Bills restricted free-agent WR Percy Harvin (hip, knee) still is undecided about his future. 'Percy Harvin was supposed to be a big help for us and we're still not sure what's going on. He's got to make some decisions here coming up. We need to get somebody opposite of Sammy to be a real threat to that defense,' director of player personnel Jim Monos said. The final two years of Harvin's three-year deal will void Feb. 12, or five days after the Super Bowl. He'll count for $1 million in dead money against the 2016 salary cap and another $1 million against the 2017 cap. It' unlikely that the Bills view re-signing Harvin as a priority at this point.
Huddle Up: Harvin has proven to be more trouble than he's worth at each of his NFL stops, so if the Bills have a way out of his contract expect them to take it.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 1/1/16 4:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (knee) has been ruled out for Week 17.
Huddle Up: As fully anticipated, McCoy will miss a second straight game, meaning more work for rookie Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee, who has rushed for a TD in each of the last three weeks.
