Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/21/17 5:22pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is not sure if he will play in any preseason games because he needs to be smart about his injury but is optimistic about his availability for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Matthews likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Bills this season and could lead the team in receptions if he stays healthy. The Bills likely will be a running team this season, which will hurt Matthews' value. Owners in most leagues probably should consider him a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/20/17 11:51am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) was spotted in a helmet but was not in pads Sunday, Aug. 20, catching passes with the rest of his position group during individual work, according to WGR Sport Radio 550's Sal Capaccio.
Huddle Up: It's a promising sign for a player who suffered a chip fracture in his sternum during his first practice with the team last weekend. The injury probably cost Matthews any shot of beginning the season as a starter, but he is trending in the right direction in terms of being able to play against the New York Jets on Sept. 10. He's a WR5 candidate with limited upside for fantasy purposes in Buffalo.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/18/17 1:58pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will start the third preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, and head coach Sean McDermott said he has all the confidence in the world in Taylor. Taylor will receive all of the first-team work against the Ravens and is expected to be the starting quarterback in Week 1.
Huddle Up: Taylor has struggled at times during the preseason, but he should be the starter for at least the start of the season. He recorded 3,023 passing yards and 23 total touchdowns in 2016. Taylor will be working with a new set of receivers this season but can still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/17/17 8:32am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) didn't travel with the team for the second preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: The chip fracture in his chest is a painful one, and he'll have to manage the pain. Matthews' status as a good WR3 in PPR leagues is unchanged.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/17/17 7:48pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 8-for-18 for 53 yards and two interceptions in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 17.
Huddle Up: Taylor is working with a new receiver corps this season and is still trying to build chemistry with them. He has posted solid numbers over the last few season and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues. His running ability will help his fantasy value.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/17/17 11:12pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will remain atop the depth chart, according to post-game comments from head coach Sean McDermott Thursday, Aug. 17. Taylor struggled badly during the team's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: This seems like a silly question, but Taylor's struggles coupled with some surprisingly competent play from Nathan Peterman looks to have opened that can of worms. It's highly unlikely that, barring injury, anyone other than Taylor will be under center for Buffalo in Week 1, but in the wake of last week's trades and Taylor's reworked contract it's no longer unthinkable that the team could go full tank mode if things go south early on. It's something to consider when deciding whether or not you want Taylor as your QB2 for 2017.
Anquan Boldin - WRPosted 8/16/17 8:28pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Anquan Boldin will make his team debut in the second preseason game Thursday, August 17, against the Philadelphia Eagles. He is expected to play a 'good amount in the first half,' as he wants to continue to nail down the timing in the passing game with QB Tyrod Taylor.
Huddle Up: Boldin proved last year in Detroit that he still has some usefulness left at age 36, and while Jordan Matthews is sidelined, he figures to attract plenty of targets. However, with Matthews expected back by Week 1, the ceiling probably won't be that high for the 14-year veteran, and as a result, it'll be hard to trust him as a WR3 in standard formats.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/14/17 5:21am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) has a chip fracture in his sternum, and the team is calling his status 'week to week.'
Huddle Up: It sounds like he'll be ready to go for Week 1. The change of scenery doesn't change his outlook in fantasy a whole lot. He remains a solid WR3 in PPR leagues.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 8/14/17 2:39pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in practice Monday, Aug. 14, because he received the day off.
Huddle Up: Clay likely will receive practices off during the season because of his back but will be able to play as long as he does not suffer a setback. He should have a solid role in the passing game this season but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/13/17 2:07pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Jordan Matthews (chest) suffered a chest injury during practice Sunday, Aug. 13, but was able to finish practice. He was being evaluated after practice.
Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation to find out the severity of Matthews' injury. He should be a starting receiver this season for the Bills, but owners will have a better understanding of his role when he plays in preseason games. Matthews probably can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 8/13/17 3:07pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones worked exclusively with the first-team offense during practice Sunday, Aug. 13.
Huddle Up: Jones is expected to be a top-three receiver for the Bills this season and could be used as an outside receiver. He can be considered a No. 4 receiver in some fantasy leagues but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/12/17 8:53pm ET
Los Angeles Rams WR Sammy Watkins said he can be 'that home-run guy' for the offense.
Huddle Up: Watkins has loads of talent, but staying healthy was already a problem, and the quarterback situation in Los Angeles is far from ideal. He should be considered a high-upside WR3 at this point.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/11/17 10:16am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was traded along with a 2018 sixth-round pick to the Los Angeles Rams for CB E.J. Gaines and a 2018 second-round selection on Friday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: The Bills did not take advantage of their ability to pick up the fifth-year option on Watkins this spring, and it turns out it won't be a problem for them after all. Instead, they will likely move forward with rookie Zay Jones and the newly acquired Jordan Matthews as their starting receivers. Jones should now be considered a quality WR3 option in fantasy, while Matthews will likely settle in as a WR4, at least initially.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 8/11/17 10:32am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews was traded along with a 2018 third-round selection to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for CB Ronald Darby on Friday, Aug. 11.
Huddle Up: The writing has been on the wall regarding Matthews' imminent departure for a while, as Nelson Agholor has been one of the stars of training camp and the offseason in general. Agholor will most likely absorb Matthews' slot role while Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith start on the outside. The Eagles also addressed their woeful secondary by landing Darby, who looked like an up-and-comer as a rookie before disappointing as a sophomore in 2016.
Jonathan Williams - RBPosted 8/11/17 3:34pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams (hamstring) participated in practice Friday, Aug. 11, even though he suffered a hamstring injury during the first preseason game.
Huddle Up: Williams appears to be on track to be the No. 2 running back for the Bills this season. He will only see limited touches as long as LeSean McCoy is healthy and probably should only be selected as a possible handcuff to McCoy.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/10/17 5:26pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins was targeted on each of Tyrod Taylor's first four pass attempts and finished with four catches for 39 yards in in the team's preseason opener versus the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: Unfortunately, we can Watkins' ADP to skyrocket over the next week. Watkins' ability has never been in question, but his ability to stay on the field has. He has always been capable of being a fantasy WR1, but owners need to remember he has played 21 of 32 games over the last two seasons due to foot injuries. Owners need to understand the risk he comes with before using a third-round selection on him in drafts.
Jonathan Williams - RBPosted 8/10/17 7:25pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in a 17-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: As the primary backup to an aging running back in a run-heavy offense, Williams should be considered one of the top handcuffs this season -- if this injury turns out to be minor.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/8/17 6:37am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) will play about a quarter in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 10, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Watkins turned his ankle over the weekend, but it's just another strand in a string of injuries. He has WR2 potential, but he can't be trusted as more than a WR3 in fantasy.
Anquan Boldin - WRPosted 8/8/17 5:06pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Anquan Boldin lined up as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Boldin has a chance to be the No. 2 receiver for the Bills this season but may see most of his time in the slot. He should have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 5 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Rod Streater - WRPosted 8/7/17 2:08pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Rod Streater worked with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: Streater has been performing well during training camp but probably will be dropping down the depth chart with the addition of Anquan Boldin. He probably will be the team's No. 4 receiver if he makes the team and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/7/17 2:13pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Aug. 7, and appeared to be a full participant.
Huddle Up: Watkins has dealt with injuries in the past but it appears that the one he suffered this weekend is minor. He has been a productive player when he is healthy and should be the No. 1 receiver for the Bills in 2017. Owners in most leagues can consider him a No. 2 fantasy receiver.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/7/17 2:40pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy has a chance to lead the Bills in receptions this season, in the opinion of WKBW.com's Joe Buscaglia.
Huddle Up: McCoy will be a focal point in the offense this season and probably will be more involved in the passing game than he was in previous seasons. McCoy will be a No. 1 running back in all leagues but more involvement in the passing game would help his value even more.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/6/17 1:26pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (ankle) left practice early Sunday, Aug. 6, after he suffered an ankle injury. Watkins said he believes he will be able to return to practice Monday, Aug. 7.
Huddle Up: It looks like Watkins suffered a minor injury, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. He was limited to 430 yards and two touchdowns in 2016 because of injury but will be the team's No. 1 receiver this season. Watkins probably can be considered a No. 2 receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Andre Holmes - WRPosted 8/4/17 7:01pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Andre Holmes has failed to make plays during the first week of training camp, according to Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.
Huddle Up: If Holmes continues to underwhelm, it should further bolster the stock of Zay Jones. The rookie looks like a high-upside WR4 and first-round target in rookie drafts.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/3/17 12:44pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has left something to be desired at camp so far, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak. Rodak noted inaccuracy as one of Taylor's struggles.
Huddle Up: Don't fret, yet. There's plenty of time between now and the regular season. Taylor's running ability makes him one of the more tantalizing quarterbacks in the fantasy realm. He's not an elite passer, but those rushing stats make him a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 consideration.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 8/3/17 3:18pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 3, because he received the day off, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: The Bills are concerned about Clay's knee, so he probably will receive some practices off during camp as well as the regular season. He has posted some decent numbers over the last few seasons but is a risky fantasy option because of his knee. He probably should be considered a No. 2 tight end in most leagues.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/2/17 6:29am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) returned to practice Wednesday, Aug. 2.
Huddle Up: McCoy had a comeback season last year, but the tread on his tires are wearing thin at 29. He's an RB1 with PPR punch, but he carries some risk and a lengthy injury history, too.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 8/2/17 7:16am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said his surgically repaired left foot is fully healthy. 'My job is really to get back in shape and be out there with the guys,' Watkins said. 'I don't want to hear no more about the foot. The foot is fine. I'm healed.' He'll be on a fluctuating repetition count during training camp.
Huddle Up: Watkins has WR1 talent, but he has been a walking injury report throughout his career. Give credit to him for playing through it until last season, but this is a prove-it year for him. He's a WR2 with significant risk and reward.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 8/1/17 5:32am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (illness) will miss practice Tuesday, Aug. 1, due to illness.
Huddle Up: McCoy was stellar last season, but the 29-year-old has a number of injuries in his past. He's a solid RB1, but with his PPR upside comes significant risk on what could be a bad team.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 8/1/17 11:36pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has not been sharp in the early stages of camp, particularly during 11-on-11 drills, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak, who writes that Taylor has been holding the ball too long and missing open receivers.
Huddle Up: Taylor's long-term job security in Buffalo is dubious, but the team is unlikely to willingly go to TJ Yates or Nathan Peterman early in 2017. Given his dual-threat ability, Taylor is an interesting QB2 even with some underwhelming performances in training camp.
