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.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/12/18 1:31pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy saw a career-low in percentage of carries from the shotgun formation last season (17%). Interestingly, that percentage has decreased in each of his last five years. Furthermore, his yards per carry and yards after contact were also the lowest of his nine-year career.
Huddle Up: McCoy will turn 30 years old this offseason, and while he's still putting up respectable numbers, he may be over the proverbial running back hill. He will remain featured in the Bills' offense, of course; Buffalo doesn't even know who its starting quarterback will be next season. As of now, McCoy stands in low-end RB1 territory with increased value in PPR formats.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/9/18 6:15pm ET
Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane has yet to endorse QB Tyrod Taylor as the long-term answer at quarterback, and Mike Rodak of ESPN.com believes the Bills could bundle some of their draft picks to move up and select a quarterback early in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Whether or not he stays in Buffalo remains to be seen, but Taylor can be viewed as a QB2 if he is a starter somewhere in 2018.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/2/18 6:50am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was a trade target of the Philadelphia Eagles through back-channel intermediaries, according to sources. The Eagles offered a package of players that included then-Eagles WR Jordan Matthews.
Huddle Up: Turning 29 didn't hurt Shady from a counting perspective as he put forth 1,138 rushing yards, six rushing scores and a 59-448-2 line through the air. His 4.0 yards-per-carry average was the lowest of his career, though. There was a lot of changes and turnover on the entire offense, and he performed well despite it. He'll be 30 next season, and the upside will diminish, but McCoy remains an RB1 in fantasy.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/2/18 3:52pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he hopes to remain with the Bills but is not willing to take a pay cut.
Huddle Up: The Bills may move on from Taylor this offseason, but he could find a starting job with another team this offseason. Taylor has fantasy value because of his ability to run in addition to his arm, but owners should only consider him a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he is a starter.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/23/18 2:00pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's future with the team was not addressed Tuesday, Jan. 23, as head coach Sean McDermott declined to comment on the topic. McDermott simply said the coaching staff will continue to evaluate.
Huddle Up: Taylor has been under the microscope in Buffalo for some time now, although he's clearly a much better option than Nathan Peterman. Taylor is an underrated fantasy quarterback thanks in large part to his running ability, but he's not consistent enough to be relied on as a weekly starter.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 1/18/18 6:47pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) underwent successful surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday, Jan. 16. According to a source, Jones' injury wasn't revealed until last week during a standard season-ending MRI examination.
Huddle Up: This injury might explain the rookie's inconsistent freshman campaign, as Jones looked like a useful piece at times for the Bills, while during other portions of the year, he was virtually non-existent. With not much depth at the position in Buffalo, Jones will get another chance to break out in 2018, but he'll be entering next year as mostly a WR4.
Kelvin Benjamin - WRPosted 1/15/18 9:12am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) said he will undergo knee surgery at some point this offseason.
Huddle Up: Benjamin had some success after being acquired by the Bills but did not post great numbers during the second half of the season. He probably will be a starter if he returns to the Bills next season and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 1/14/18 9:03am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday, Jan. 16, to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder that he played with for the majority of the season, according to his father.
Huddle Up: Jones finished the season with 316 yards and two touchdowns but has a solid chance to improve those numbers next season. He should be a top-three receiver for the Bills in 2018 and could be a late-round pick in fantasy drafts.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 1/7/18 8:42am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is officially active for the Wild Card playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: McCoy likely will receive his normal workload despite his ankle injury. He is a bit of a risky option because of the injury but should be a starter in all fantasy leagues.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/7/18 1:37pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) left the Wild Card playoff game early and is going through the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Taylor will have to offseason to recover from the injury and should be ready for offseason workouts or training camp. It is not known if Taylor will be the Bills next season but could find a starting job if he joins another team. He probably should be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in 2018.
