Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/29/16 7:49am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is likely to sit out the preseason finale this week, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: Watkins should be fine for the season, and he remains a high-end WR2 in fantasy. The number of injuries he has tallied is concerning, but he has performed admirably despite them.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/26/16 3:07pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.
Huddle Up: It appears that McCoy is being rested and is not injured. He should be a focal point on offense this season and can be a low-end No. 1 or a high-end No. 2 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Karlos Williams - RBPosted 8/25/16 9:18am ET
Free-agent RB Karlos Williams (Bills) is receiving interest from five teams, according to sources. Williams has already met with the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Williams probably will be a backup running back for a team this season, but his fantasy value will be determined by his role. He would be a late-round option in leagues if he finds a good situation.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/23/16 11:37am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is good to go against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26. He won't play much, but head coach Rex Ryan believes he's ready.
Huddle Up: It's definitely a positive step in Watkins' recovery. If he doesn't aggravate his foot injury then he should be fine for the start of the regular season. He's snugly in WR2 territory.
Mike Gillislee - RBPosted 8/22/16 3:29pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee (concussion) is 'probably the No. 2 back right now', according to head coach Rex Ryan. Gillislee is still in the concussion protocol, however.
Huddle Up: Gillislee played pretty well when he was given the opportunity last year, averaging 5.7 yards on 47 carries. He will be competing with Jonathan Williams, Reggie Bush and others, but he's worth a look in the later rounds of deeper leagues, especially for those who are drafting LeSean McCoy.
Karlos Williams - RBPosted 8/20/16 11:10am ET
The Buffalo Bills are expected to release RB Karlos Williams, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: Williams showed up to minicamp last month 20-25 pounds overweight and will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, so word of his pending release shouldn't be a complete surprise, despite possessing a great deal of talent. Mike Gillislee now appears poised to serve as LeSean McCoy's primary backup in Buffalo and should be viewed as a solid RB5. Williams is likely to be picked up by another team and is worth considering as a late-round flier in traditional seasonal leagues.
Karlos Williams - RBPosted 8/20/16 11:39am ET
Updating a previous report, the Buffalo Bills have officially released RB Karlos Williams.
Huddle Up: The 23-year-old Williams collected 517 rushing yards and averaged 5.6 yards per carry during his rookie season but was suspended for four games after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy and showed up at camp grossly overweight. Chances are that another NFL club will take a flier on him because of his potential, making him worthy of consideration in the later rounds of traditional drafts. RBs Reggie Bush, Mike Gillislee and Jonathan Williams should see slight increases in fantasy value backing up starter LeSean McCoy and should also be viewed as late-round considerations.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/20/16 12:34pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not playing against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Watkins should still be good to go for the regular season opener as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. He's comfortably in WR2 territory as the Bills' only legitimate receiving threat.
Reggie Bush - RBPosted 8/20/16 2:51pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush has been considered the favorite to serve as the direct backup for RB LeSean McCoy since the former was signed earlier this month, even before the release of RB Karlos Williams, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.
Huddle Up: This is a bit of an upset since it was thought Williams, Mike Gillislee and rookie Jonathan Williams were vying for the job. At the moment, however, only Jonathan Williams is available to compete with Bush. For now, owners need to consider Bush the handcuff to own in Buffalo and a player worthy of a late-round fantasy draft pick, especially given McCoy's recent injury history.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/18/16 8:38pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) could play against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 20, according to head coach Rex Ryan.
Huddle Up: Watkins has elite talent, but constant injuries push him into WR2 territory.
Marcell Dareus - DTPosted 8/17/16 2:23pm ET
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus said he was suspended for four games because he missed a drug test.
Huddle Up: Between injuries and now Dareus' season-opening suspension, it's not the start the BIlls' D needed as it tries to rebound fromdeeply disappointing fantasy -- and real-life -- seasons a year ago.
Karlos Williams - RBPosted 8/15/16 9:46am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams (illness) passed his physical Monday, Aug. 15, and will practice after a stint on the Non-Football Illness list.
Huddle Up: Williams will miss the first four games, and the team brought in Reggie Bush, who may remain over him on the depth chart early on. Williams has a lot of talent, though, and should resurface at some point in the fantasy season. He's an RB5 you'll have to stash in the early stages.
Leonard Hankerson - WRPosted 8/15/16 7:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson was released Monday, Aug. 15, according to sources.
Huddle Up: This comes as no surprise. Hankerson was dreadful in the Bills first preseason game. He caught 1-of-5 targets and had three drops. Hankerson is running out of chances in the NFL.
Leonard Hankerson - WRPosted 8/14/16 7:49pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson dropped three or four passes during the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 13, and head coach Rex Ryan said the team is expecting more from him.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/12/16 2:02pm ET
Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor should receive a multi-year deal soon, and sources say it will not be a stop-gap contract. Buffalo appears willing to go as long as six years in duration.
Huddle Up: One thought was that the Bills might wait and make Taylor prove it this season, but perhaps they already like too much of what they see and want to get out ahead before a big 2016 drives the price up.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/12/16 2:47pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has agreed to terms on six-year, $90 million contract extension. The deal has unspecified team options and could be worth more through incentives.
Huddle Up: As has been speculated for the last few weeks, Taylor's big payday has arrived, but that also ratchets up the pressure on the second-year starter to improved on his solid debut season in Buffalo a year ago. He's currently ranked as a low-end QB2, but there is upside.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/12/16 7:18pm ET
Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to make $9.5 million in 2016 then the team will have to decide if they pick up his option next offseason. Taylor would receive $27.5 million in 2017 and his contract extension would start if the team picks up the option.
Huddle Up: Taylor gets a significant raise but the Bills also protect themselves in case he regresses after a breakout 2015 season. If Taylor continues to play well, the Bills will obviously pick up the option. Taylor currently has a an ADP of Round 11, making him a popular late QB option for fantasy owners.
Marquise Goodwin - WRPosted 8/11/16 2:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Marquise Goodwin has a solid chance to win the No. 3 receiver job this season because he has performed better than the other candidates for the job.
Huddle Up: There certainly could be a WR opportunity in Buffalo if No. 1 wideout Sammy Watkins can't stay off the injury list and on the field, but for now, Goodwin and the other Bills WRs are all speculative late-round flyers at best.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/11/16 7:06pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is good to go but head coach Rex Ryan isn't sure if he will play Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Watkins just started practicing this week and starters don't play much in the first preseason game anyway. The likely scenario is Watkins sits out Saturday's game and makes his preseason debut the following week. The important thing is Watkins is in no danger of missing the regular season opener.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/8/16 10:13am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) passed his physical Monday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Watkins has faced a number of injury issues, but he has been a solid contributor in fantasy despite the issues. He's a high-end WR2 with room for more.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 8/5/16 8:46am ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was called a 'matchup nightmare' by head coach Rex Ryan, and Ryan said Clay needs to be more of a factor in the red zone. The Bills had one touchdown by a tight end in the red zone last year.
Huddle Up: Clay has the athleticism to be a major force in the passing game, but Buffalo's run-heavy offense will make it hard for him to be more than a low-end TE1 more often than the random matchup.
Reggie Bush - RBPosted 8/2/16 7:43am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush is viewed mainly as a return man on special teams, according to general manager Doug Whaley. Bush will be with RB LeSean McCoy in some offensive sets, however.
Huddle Up: Bush definitely made a name for himself as a return man with the New Orleans Saints, but it gives him little fantasy value. He should be viewed as a late-round flier in PPR leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/2/16 11:01pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is nearing a return to the practice field after recovering from foot surgery. The team is targeting Monday, Aug. 8, for his first practice.
Huddle Up: All is going as well -- or better -- than expected with Watkins' recovery, and if can avoid further issue, he's a WR2 with definite WR1 upside.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/1/16 9:36am ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor continues to negotiate on a contract extension, and there's plenty of optimism that a deal is struck before the season opens.
Huddle Up: Taylor was one of the surprises out of the gates last season before he got nicked up. He completed 74.3% of his passes in the first three games with seven scores and an average of 238 passing yards per game. He didn't throw multiple touchdowns for nearly two months afterwards. That inconsistency keeps him in the QB2 range in fantasy.
Reggie Bush - RBPosted 8/1/16 5:38pm ET
Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (49ers) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, Aug. 1, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Bush is 31 now but only has logged 84 carries since the end of the 2013 season. Hes slated for kick-return duty and will simply be insurance, though, in case LeSean McCoy misses extended time and/or second-year back Karlos Williams fails to get his conditioning and off-field act in order.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/1/16 5:38pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy impressed the coaching staff with how hard he worked during the offseason, and they expect him to have a very productive season in 2016.
Huddle Up: McCoy's debut season in Buffalo produced six-year lows nearly across the board with 1,187 total yards and five TDs in 12 games played. He should be drafted as a high-end RB2 with upside.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 7/31/16 1:07pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) has passed the mandatory conditioning tests but remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list as a precautionary measure. However, he has been running for several weeks.
Huddle Up: It appears Watkins, the Huddle's 14th-ranked WR, is on or slightly ahead of schedule and would appear to be set to start in Week 1, but keep a close eye on the wideout as he's already developed a track record of health issues just two seasons into his career.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 7/19/16 4:11pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will play very little in the preseason, if at all, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.
Huddle Up: It would certainly be a smart move by the Bills after McCoy was hampered by nagging injuries for most of the season a year ago and played a career-low 12 games.
Karlos Williams - RBPosted 7/15/16 3:20pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams was suspended four games Friday, July 15, for violating the substance-abuse policy.
Huddle Up: A troubled offseason (weight issues) just got that much more troubling for the second-year back, leaving Mike Gillislee, Dan Herron and fifth-round pick Jonathan Williams as the primary handcuff options to LeSean McCoy. The latter, though, was just arrested for DUI that could result in a suspension for him as well.
Jonathan Williams - RBPosted 7/15/16 4:01pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams was arrested Thursday, July 14, and has been charged with driving while intoxicated.
Huddle Up: It's been quite an offseason for backup Buffalo RBs, and now the rookie fifth-round pick likely will be facing some league discipline. With fellow backup Karlos Williams facing a four-game substance-abuse suspension, Mike Gillislee and Dan Herron look like they will open the season as the primary backups to LeSean McCoy.
