Zay Jones - WRPosted 6/17/18 12:51pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones will have to 'earn his way' and 'not necessarily go right to the top of the line' after a mostly disappointing rookie season, according to general manager Brandon Beane.
Huddle Up: Jones dabbled with fantasy relevancy for a short while about midway through the season, but he caught only 27 of 74 targets. Thus, it's no surprise Beane is taking the stance he is. Still, if Jones shows more of the ability that made him a second-round pick out of East Carolina last year, he should be able to secure a starting spot ahead of the likes of Jeremy Curley, Rod Streater and Andre Holmes. Jones does not need to be drafted in most leagues.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 6/14/18 9:32am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder, knee) could be healthy enough for training camp as head coach Sean McDermott said he has 'no reason not to believe' Jones won't be ready.
Huddle Up: Double negatives aside, Buffalo's quarterback situation is far from trustworthy and their receiving corps is one of the worst in the NFL. LeSean McCoy is the only Bill worth starting on a week-to-week basis.
Travaris Cadet - RBPosted 6/10/18 8:02pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Travaris Cadet's versatility could help him carve out a role in the offense, according to Ryan Talbot of NewYorkUpstate.com.
Huddle Up: LeSean McCoy is an every-down back when he is healthy, but if he happens to suffer an injury, Cadet's receiving ability could put him on the radar in PPR formats.
Sean McDermott - HCPosted 6/7/18 12:13pm ET
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said he is not sure if QB Josh Allen will receive snaps with the first-team or second-team offense during minicamp next week. Allen has been working with the third-team offense during workouts.
Huddle Up: Allen probably will not receive much playing time in 2018 but could become the starter in a year or two. He will be valuable in keeper leagues but can be avoided in standard leagues unless he is named the starter this season.
Jeremy Kerley - WRPosted 6/7/18 3:55pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Jeremy Kerley has been lining up as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during organized team activities. He's been a 'firm fit' so far and should have a leg up for this spot, with his 'primary sources of competition' coming from rookie WRs Austin Proehl and Ray-Ray McCloud.
Huddle Up: Kerley is coming off a quiet season with the Jets, but given their lousy offense, it's hard to place most of the blame on the seven-year veteran for that. Only two seasons ago, he registered a career-best 64 catches with the 49ers and could be in position to churn out similar production if he indeed maintains a prominent position in this offense. Thus, think about him as a WR4.
Kelvin Benjamin - WRPosted 5/31/18 8:23pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin has looked 'leaner, stronger and most importantly faster' during OTAs, according to Dominic LoVallo of BuffaloBills.com
Huddle Up: Benjamin can be a matchup nightmare because of his size, but Buffalo's quarterback situation and run-heavy philosophy are going to limit his upside. At best, he's a WR3 because of his potential in the red zone.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 5/29/18 8:44pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was tackled behind the line of scrimmage 55 times in 287 carries last season, far and away the most in the league.
Huddle Up: While McCoy does his fair share of dancing in the backfield, he cannot be held solely responsible for being stuffed on nearly 20 percent of his carries. Things may be on the verge of getting worse, as left tackle Cordy Glenn was traded and center Eric Wood was forced to retire. It's a far from ideal scenario for McCoy, who will turn 30 this summer. He's going to be a risky RB1 in fantasy.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 5/24/18 7:46am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (knee) had knee surgery Thursday, May 24, and will miss the remainder of the offseason program.
Huddle Up: It has been an offseason to forget for Jones, but he still has WR5 clout.
Kelvin Benjamin - WRPosted 5/24/18 10:03am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is a full participant and off to a good start at organized team activities, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Benjamin is the No. 1 wide receiver on the Bills and will see a high volume of targets if he can stay on the field. That being said, the Bills' quarterback crew is an unreliable one, which limits Benjamin's upside. Drafting him as more than a low-end WR3 or high-end WR4 is playing with fire.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 5/24/18 12:04pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) was limited during organized team activities Thursday, May 24, because of an illness.
Huddle Up: McCoy will continue to be a main focus on offense this upcoming season and should be one of the league leaders in touches. He can be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues and will be selected in one of the first two rounds of drafts.
Kelvin Benjamin - WRPosted 4/30/18 7:33am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin won't have contract talks on an extension until at least the summer, according to general manager Brandon Beane.
Huddle Up: Benjamin is on the WR2/WR3 borderline in fantasy. He'll have either AJ McCarron or rookie Josh Allen throwing to him, which doesn't lend much upside for him.
Josh Allen - QBPosted 4/29/18 1:52pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen will not be rushed but will start as a rookie if he wins the starting job during training camp, according to general manager Brandon Beane.
Huddle Up: Allen will compete with AJ McCarron for the starting job during camp and has a chance to start as a rookie. Allen will be a valuable option in keeper leagues but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in standard leagues if he starts.
Ray-Ray McCloud - WRPosted 4/28/18 1:16pm ET
The Buffalo Bills picked Clemson WR Ray-Ray McCloud with the 187th overall pick (Round 6) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: McCloud is the second Clemson wide receiver selected in Round 6, just a few picks behind fellow Tigers wideout Deon Cain (Colts). He is a bit on the smallish side, but he has good speed and he'll certainly have a chance to make a splash as a return man, too.
Austin Proehl - WRPosted 4/28/18 3:51pm ET
The Buffalo Bills picked North Carolina WR Austin Proehl with the 255th overall selection (Round 7) in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Proehl, whose dad Ricky played for many seasons in the pros, is a slot receiver with some decent speed. He'll also be a decent player in the return game for the Bills.
Josh Allen - QBPosted 4/26/18 5:57pm ET
The Buffalo Bills selected Wyoming QB Josh Allen with the seventh overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation because Allen could compete with AJ McCarron for the starting job. Allen will be a popular pick in keeper leagues in 2018 but probably can be avoided in most standard leagues.
Kelvin Benjamin - WRPosted 4/16/18 7:27am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) took part in voluntary workouts Monday, April 16.
Huddle Up: Benjamin's stock has fallen a long way, but he still holds WR2 value in PPR formats.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 4/16/18 12:19pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones is in a satisfactory position within the organization, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Both sides agreed they need to move on from Jones' off-field incident and subsequent arrest.
Huddle Up: As of now it's unclear who will be throwing to Jones and who exactly he'll be competing with for targets. However, Buffalo arguably possesses the least talented wide receiver corps in all the NFL. That being said, Jones is worth a late-round flier at worst.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 4/9/18 8:09am ET
Updating previous reports, New England Patriots WR Jordan Matthews received a one-year, $1 million deal with $170,000 guaranteed and $700,000 in incentives.
Huddle Up: Matthews' basement appears to be as a WR5, but if he can acclimate himself this offseason there's no reason he can't reach the WR3 area again.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 4/5/18 5:22pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New England Patriots Thursday, April 5, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: The Patriots have lost a few receivers this offseason, so Matthews has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game in 2018. He probably will not be a weekly starting option for fantasy owners next season but could be a No. 5 receiver on rosters.
A.J. McCarron - QBPosted 4/4/18 8:55pm ET
Buffalo Bills QBs AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman will take part in an 'open competition' for the role of starting quarterback, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: McCarron is the presumed favorite, especially after Peterman looked like a disaster in his one and only start as a rookie last season, not even lasting the full game due to ineffectiveness. McCarron certainly has the higher ceiling but no matter who emerges, they'll only be useful in deep two-quarterback formats out of the gate, if even that.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 4/2/18 2:49pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) has been given an undisclosed offer from the Arizona Cardinals, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. As reported earlier, Matthews visited the New England Patriots Monday, April 2.
Huddle Up: Matthews' main issue over his last two years has been staying healthy. He played only 10 games in his first season with the Buffalo Bills last year. He'll be merely a late-round dart throw wherever he lands.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/22/18 3:30pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) is scheduled to meet with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 23, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Matthews is coming off a disappointing 2017 season but could be a replacement for Jordy Nelson if he signs with the Packers. He probably will be a late-round option in fantasy leagues next season but would have some decent value if he plays with Aaron Rodgers.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 3/22/18 10:33pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones will not face charges regarding suspicion of felony vandalism stemming from an incident on Monday, March 19, as Los Angeles prosecutors declined the case due to 'insufficient evidence.'
Huddle Up: This figures to save Jones from any discipline brought upon by the league, although with Roger Goodell, you never know. Either way, the 2017 second-round draft pick is coming off an unimpressive rookie campaign that saw him log just 27 catches for 316 yards and a pair of scores across 15 games. He appears to be the team's No. 2 wide-out going into next season, but really only looks like an option for deeper fantasy formats as of now.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 3/16/18 5:21pm ET
Free-agent WR Jordan Matthews (Bills) visited with the Arizona Cardinals on Friday, March 16.
Huddle Up: Matthews had a disappointing and injury-marred season in Buffalo in 2017. He is looking to resurrect his career, and could be a nice addition in Arizona as they look to replace John Brown.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 3/9/18 3:04pm ET
The Cleveland Browns reportedly agreed to acquire QB Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a 2018 third-round pick Friday, March 9.
Huddle Up: The Browns have drastically upgraded their offense in one afternoon, first acquiring Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins before agreeing to this deal. This trade also buys Cleveland some time to bring a rookie quarterback around slowly if it chooses to take one high in the draft or avoid the position if it doesn't like the incoming class. With his ability to run combined with Landry, Josh Gordon, Duke Johnson and David Njoku on the roster, Taylor may be a high-upside, low-end fantasy QB1 in 2018.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 3/9/18 3:12pm ET
The Buffalo Bills reportedly agreed to trade QB Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2018 third-round pick Friday, March 9.
Huddle Up: The trade leaves only Nathan Peterman on the Bills' quarterback depth chart, suggesting they will be players for a new signal-caller in free agency next week and/or the draft next month. Armed with the 21st and 22nd overall picks, Buffalo could be eyeing a move into the top five or 10 picks to get their guy. While Peterman will have a head start on any competition the Bills bring in, he is far from a lock to start Week 1.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 3/2/18 8:04pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will be a 'big part' of the offense in 2018, according to general manager Brandon Beane.
Huddle Up: McCoy finished in the top five in the NFL in rushing last year and added 59 catches. In Buffalo's run-heavy attack, he should be able to deliver another year of RB1 production, especially in PPR formats.
Kelvin Benjamin - WRPosted 2/28/18 7:21am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is progressing from knee surgery, and he's expected to be ready for conditioning in April.
Huddle Up: Benjamin could be worth snagging as a WR3, but he was really inconsistent in the new offense. He'll have a number of questions, especially who throws him the football. However, the solid reward outweighs the potential risk.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 2/28/18 2:39pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) is on track for the start of offseason workouts, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Jones had a disappointing rookie season and finished with only 316 yards and two touchdowns. He probably will be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for the Bills in 2018 and could be a late-round pick in fantasy leagues.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/22/18 1:09pm ET
The Buffalo Bills are not planning to release QB Tyrod Taylor at this time and are open to paying his $6 million roster bonus in March. The team could still try to trade Taylor this offseason depending on what they do at the position.
Huddle Up: Taylor was benched during the season but regained the job and finished with 2,799 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions. He has also rushed for at least 425 yards in each of the last three years with 14 rushing touchdowns during that span. There is a good chance that Taylor starts for a team in 2018 but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
