Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/25/17 5:52pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is unlikely to be ready for a full workload when training camp begins.
Huddle Up: His injury history is a major red flag, but Watkins has enough upside to take a chance on as your WR2.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 6/20/17 7:14am ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has impressed head coach Sean McDermott. 'I've really been impressed with the leadership,' McDermott said. '(He displayed) the intangible qualities that are inherent or must be inherent to that quarterback position. I've watched him develop in those areas and that's important as we look to move forward. There's leadership qualities at that quarterback position that are important to winning football games, and I think he's done a nice job in that area.'
Huddle Up: Taylor has been a matchup play with some bright spots the last two seasons. He's much of the same this year as a QB2 in fantasy.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 6/14/17 11:43am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) is participating in practice Wednesday, June 14.
Huddle Up: McCoy will have a big role on offense for the Bills this season and should be one of the top running backs in the NFL. Owners in all leagues should consider McCoy as a No. 1 fantasy running back.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/13/17 8:33am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) remains limited in practice Tuesday, June 13. Watkins will likely be relegated to individual drills during mandatory minicamp with the potential to increase his workload in training camp.
Huddle Up: Watkins has battled a myriad of injuries in his brief career, but he has as much talent as risk as a low-end WR2.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/13/17 11:56am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) participated in team drills at minicamp Tuesday, June 13. Head coach Sean McDermott said Watkins has responded well to a bigger workload and that workload will continue to be increased as long as Watkins can handle it.
Huddle Up: At this rate, it looks like Watkins will be able to make a full recovery in time for the regular season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. He has a reputation for being injury prone, though, after missing 11 games the last two seasons. A Buffalo's No. 1 receiver, Watkins can be drafted as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2.
Jonathan Williams - RBPosted 6/13/17 12:20pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams' development will be vital to the Bills' future success, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Williams is an underrated weapon for the Bills with Mike Gillislee gone. Williams takes over the backup role behind LeSean McCoy and is a good handcuff candidate despite missing five games in his rookie year.
Andre Holmes - WRPosted 6/13/17 5:14pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Andre Holmes has been a standout performer on offense and special teams this offseason, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Holmes is competing for the No. 2 receiver job and should see a solid amount of snaps during the preseason to try to win the job. He posted only 126 yards this past season but did have 693 yards in 2014. Holmes probably will not have a lot of value in fantasy leagues but could be a late-round pick in deeper leagues.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 6/13/17 5:19pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) did not participate in practice Tuesday, June 13, because of an illness.
Huddle Up: McCoy should be fine for the start of training camp and could even practice later this week. He should be the focal point in the offense for the Bills this season and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 6/10/17 11:04am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones said he has no problems with the team's interest in free-agent WR Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) and would like to learn from Maclin if he signs with the Bills.
Huddle Up: Jones likely will compete for the No. 2 receiver job during training camp but probably would be at least the No. 3 receiver if the Bills do sign Maclin. Jones should have a decent role in the passing game as a rookie and can be a No. 5 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 6/8/17 7:46am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will be limited in practice Thursday, June 8.
Huddle Up: Watkins has been injury prone throughout his career, but he played really well through them the first couple of years. He's a high-risk WR2 in fantasy.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 6/8/17 7:43am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) will participate in practice fully Thursday, June 8.
Huddle Up: Jones has late-round potential as a WR5 in fantasy if he wins the starting job opposite of Sammy Watkins.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 5/29/17 12:53pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is excited as a pass-catcher in the Bills' new offense. He explained that the Bills throw it to the running backs a lot in new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison's offense. Additionally, Dennison makes it harder on defenses because the Bills line up in the same formation a lot.
Huddle Up: McCoy is already an RB1 in both standard and PPR formats. He's one of the best pass-catching running backs in the league when given the opportunity, and it sounds like he'll be given plenty of opportunities in the passing game. Draft him with a mid- to late-first round pick.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 5/25/17 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.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 5/25/17 11:03pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) is 'progressing well,' according to head coach Sean McDermott. Jones' status remains week-to-week.
Huddle Up: Jones has a great chance to emerge as the starter opposite Sammy Watkins, and while the knee injury isn't an ideal way to get integrated into the Bills offense it's not time to get concerned yet. Assuming he heals up, Jones could have some late-round flier potential.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/20/17 6:36pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not expected to return to the field until training camp begins.
Huddle Up: Watkins' upside is undeniable, but he is a high-risk WR2 because of his injury history.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 5/20/17 7:02pm ET
Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said he likes 'ball possession' and believes RB LeSean McCoy, the running game and the offensive line are the strengths of the offense.
Huddle Up: After topping 1,200 yard and scoring 13 times last year, it sounds like McCoy could be busy again in 2017. He should be the focal point of a run-first offense and a midrange RB1.
Andre Holmes - WRPosted 5/20/17 7:30pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Andre Holmes has demonstrated smooth route running and good field awareness during OTAs, and beat writer John Murphy believes Holmes is earning himself more playing time.
Huddle Up: If Zay Jones and Sammy Watkins take longer than expected to recover from their respective injuries, Holmes could be a sneaky option in the final rounds of drafts. At the very least, he is a name worth filing away.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 5/20/17 7:39pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor needs to 'trust his eyes' more and is still a work in progress when it comes to knowing when and where to throw the ball, according to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.
Huddle Up: Taylor should open the year as the starter in Buffalo, and his ability to throw the deep ball and create plays with his legs make him a solid QB2 and a potential starter against friendly matchups.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 5/18/17 8:34am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee), the team's second-round pick in 2017, suffered a knee injury Tuesday, May 16, which the team believes is a sprain. He'll miss some time.
Huddle Up: Jones has a chance to be the No. 2 receiver for the team, and this could hurt his chances. Take a wait-and-see approach with him if you're drafting in the near term.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/18/17 8:30am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not participating in the organized team activities Thursday, May 18.
Huddle Up: Watkins has shown equal ability on the field as his propensity for injury. His 60-1,047-9 campaign in 2015 over 13 games had him as a high-end WR2 last year before another foot injury. He'll enter 2017 as a high-risk WR2 that could fall into the WR3 area and handsomely reward you.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 5/18/17 1:38pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones signed his four-year rookie contract Thursday, May 18. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Jones has the opportunity to make an immediate impact in Buffalo as he strives for the No. 2 receiver position alongside Sammy Watkins. Even so, there will be growing pains, and he's already dealing with a knee injury. Jones' real worth will be in leagues with standard scoring.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 5/12/17 4:00pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones has a chance to win the No. 2 receiver job if he has a strong offseason and training camp, in the opinion of BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown.
Huddle Up: Jones should have a solid role in the passing game in his rookie season but has a chance to be a starter if he performs well during the preseason. Owners should consider Jones as a late- round option in most drafts but will have value in keeper leagues.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 5/7/17 6:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones' precise route running will translate to the NFL and make him a consistent receiver for the offense, according to former WR Nate Burleson.
Huddle Up: Jones put up huge numbers in college, and he should have a great chance to earn a starting spot during training camp. If he opens the year as a starter, he is worth a look as a WR5. In rookie drafts, he is a solid second-round pick.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/5/17 9:03am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is not expected to receive an extension offer during the season, according to the Buffalo News's Vic Carucci, who believes new head coach Sean McDermott's big-picture vision for the roster doesn't include a huge investment in a receiver.
Huddle Up: Watkins has proven to be a dominant force when he can stay on the field but playing 21 of a possible 32 games over the last two seasons isn't helping his cause. Buffalo recently declined his fifth-year team option, so it is beginning to look like they'll be one of the more sought-after free agents in 2018. Almost regardless of where he might land, he should be no worse than a fantasy WR2 this year and beyond.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 5/2/17 12:25pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins will not have his fifth-year option picked up, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This move, or lack of a move, makes sense for the Bills. Watkins is easily Buffalo's best receiver, but he has begun a track record of not being able to stay on the field after missing 11 total games the last two years. Watkins is a high-risk, high-reward pick and should be drafted as a low-end WR2.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 4/30/17 2:53pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not be handed the starting quarterback job and will need to earn it during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Taylor is the leading candidate for the job, but he is not guaranteed the job with a new head coach. He had a solid 2016 season with 3,023 yards and 23 total touchdowns. Taylor should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and could be a starting option against certain options.
Nathan Peterman - QBPosted 4/29/17 12:01pm ET
The Buffalo Bills selected Pittsburgh QB Nathan Peterman with the No. 171 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Saturday, April 29.
Huddle Up: As long as Tyrod Taylor remains healthy and in favor, Peterman is an afterthought in 2017. He should battle Cardale Jones for the backup role and enter the mix for 2018 when Taylor's deal offers an out. When Peterman is given a shot, he has the tools to develop into a serviceable fantasy starter.
Nathan Peterman - QBPosted 4/29/17 7:13pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Nathan Peterman's accuracy and timing of his throws and his 'ability to work under center' stood out, according to head coach Sean McDermott. 'It's not something you see often in the college game,' McDermott said.
Huddle Up: Coming from a pro-style offense, Peterman could make a quicker transition to the NFL game than a lot of rookies. Tyrod Taylor is running the show in Buffalo for now, but Peterman could have his chance in a couple of years. He is worth stashing in dynasty formats.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 4/28/17 4:43pm ET
The Buffalo Bills selected East Carolina WR Zay Jones with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.
Huddle Up: Jones may have a chance to compete for a starting job during training camp, so owners will need to monitor his situation. He could be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts in 2017 if he has a solid role in the passing game. He will have more value in keeper leagues since he has a chance to be a weekly flex option.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 4/28/17 6:32pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins' (foot) fifth-year option likely will not be picked up before the May 2 deadline, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Watkins is recovering from foot surgery and has dealt with injuries over the last few seasons. He should continue to be the Bills' No. 1 receiver in 2017 and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
