Brandon Beane - GMPosted 3/8/19 10:44am ET
Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane said in a statement Friday, March 8, that the Bills have moved on after a disussed trade for Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown failed to come to fruition. 'We inquired about Antonio Brown on Tuesday, and kept talks open with the Steelers,' Beane said in his statement Friday. 'We had positive discussions, but ultimately it didn't make sense for either side. As great a player as Antonio Brown is, we have moved on and our focus is on free agency.'
A.J. McCarron - QBPosted 2/27/19 10:29am ET
Oakland Raiders QB Derek Carr was called the team's 'franchise quarterback' by new general manager Mike Mayock on Wednesday, Feb. 27. Mayock went on to say he is also happy with backup QB AJ McCarron. 'I think Derek Carr is a franchise quarterback,' Mayock said. 'I truly believe that. Now, do I also believe that it's a general manager and head coach's job to keep their job open to improve any position on a football team? Sure. But I think it's really difficult to try to improve over a franchise quarterback like the one we have in our building right now.'
Huddle Up: Carr has flashed at times and has shown the ability to be a low-end QB1 when all is going well. However, the perennially rebuilding Raiders need to restock the WR cupboard and shore up the offensive line before fantasy faithful can even whisper Carr's name in the No. 1 quarterback conversation. Barring an unexpected move to bolster his receiving corps, Carr remains a fringe QB2 with more downside than positives.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 2/15/19 1:07pm ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was released Friday, Feb. 15.
Huddle Up: Clay is coming off a disappointing 2018 season and has been held to under 600 yards in each of the last four seasons. He should not be an option in most fantasy leagues even if he finds another starting job.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 1/23/19 12:00pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy believes he and the Bills will bounce back after a personally and collectively trying season. McCoy had his worst season as a professional football player, he was the subject of accusation in an alleged domestic incident and he was benched in Week 16.
Huddle Up: What's more is that McCoy will turn 31 years old this offseason and is over the hill in running back years. He should still be the main guy in Buffalo's backfield, but he is far from being the RB1 conversation.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 1/20/19 6:18pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones had five of his seven touchdowns over the final five games of 2018, and he topped 60 yards three times in that span after topping 60 yards just twice through the first 11 games.
Huddle Up: After a rough rookie year, Jones showed signs of life in his sophomore campaign. Buffalo has been searching for a No. 1 option in the passing game, and Jones could have a chance to fill that role in 2019. Keep him in mind as a fantasy sleeper for next season.
Robert Foster - WRPosted 1/14/19 10:43pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Foster led the NFL with 20 yards per catch (minimum 25 receptions) and is one of only four players since 2015 to record three 100-yard receiving games in their rookie season.
Huddle Up: The latter group consists of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Michael Thomas and Amari Cooper, so it's quite remarkable he was able to pull that off despite not receiving regular playing time until Week 10. The Bills might try to upgrade at receiver in the offseason, but the emergence of Foster and Isaiah McKenzie following the release of Kelvin Benjamin may make give Buffalo pause. Assuming he keeps his starting job, Foster will be an enticing late-round fantasy flier next season.
Robert Foster - WRPosted 1/5/19 7:13pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Foster had 511 of his 541 receiving yards in his final seven games, topping 90 yards four times in that stretch.
Huddle Up: Foster ended up finishing second on the team in receiving yards while averaging an impressive 20.0 yards per reception. His strong finish to his rookie year and his big-play potential will make him worth a flier in the later rounds when 2019 drafts roll around.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/31/18 12:51pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will return to the Bills for the final year of his contract in 2019, according to general manager Brandon Beane.
Huddle Up: McCoy is coming off the worst year of his career and will be turning 31 years old this offseason. The talent and playmaking ability are still there, though. Combined with his past success, it will be difficult to pass on him as a PPR RB2 in 2019 fantasy drafts.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/30/18 1:53pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory rushed 14 times for 45 yards in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins and he added a 46-yard grab on his only target.
Huddle Up: Ivory finished with 385 rushing yards and a touchdown with 13 catches, 205 yards and no scores through the air. He is a backup at this point as he is now 30 and on the downside of his career. Heading into 2019 he is only a depth player in PPR formats in deeper leagues.
Josh Allen - QBPosted 12/30/18 1:50pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen completed 17-of-26 passes for 224 yards, three touchdowns and an interceptions in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins and he rushed for 95 yards and a pair of scores.
Huddle Up: Allen missed a handful of games due to an elbow injury, but he came back strong on Nov. 25 and finished with a career-high five total touchdowns, including his first three-TD passing game. He appears to be a nice long-term keeper who could take another step forward for fantasy owners in 2019, especially if the team can get some better receivers in the offseason.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 12/30/18 2:00pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones finished with six receptions, 93 yards and two touchdowns on nine targets in the Week 17 game against the Miami Dolphins. He ended up with five touchdowns over his final five outings.
Huddle Up: Jones took a big step forward in Year No. 2, finishing with 56 catches, 652 yards and seven scores. He could enter 2019 as quite the fantasy sleeper, especially as he builds more rapport with QB Josh Allen during the offseason.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/30/18 1:57pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy ran 10 times for 26 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins and he added two grabs for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Shady ended up with 514 rushing yards and three touchdowns across 14 games and he had 34 grabs for 238 yards and no scores. McCoy was a perennial first-round fantasy pick for many years, but at 30 he is on the downside of his career and should be treated as a RB3 or flex fantasy player heading into 2019.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/28/18 2:40pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 28 for the third consecutive day and he is listed as questionable for Week 17 against the Miami Dolphins.
Huddle Up: If Ivory is able to play he could split the work with LeSean McCoy in a rather meaningless game for both teams. However, with temperatures around the freezing mark with breezy conditions, the run game might be used more than the pass attack. Ivory could be useful as a cost saver in DFS play, but seasonal players will want to avoid him.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/27/18 7:24pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is viewed as an important piece of the offense for 2019, according to head coach Sean McDermott, and McDermott said he feels McCoy has 'bought in' with the Bills for next season.
Huddle Up: McCoy is finishing up the worst year of his career, and while injuries have played a part, age isn't on his side. After entering this season as a borderline RB1, McCoy's stock has plummeted. He will likely be a flex option, at best, in 2019.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/26/18 1:26pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Dec. 26.
Huddle Up: Ivory might be able to suit up for the regular-season finale against the Dolphins, but it's likely his touches will be limited and therefore so will his fantasy appeal.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/26/18 5:03pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) appears to have a good chance to play in the Week 17 game, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Ivory likely will serve as the backup running back if he plays in the Week 17 game and can be benched in most fantasy leagues.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/23/18 6:00am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) appears unlikely to play in Week 16's game against the New England Patriots due to a lingering shoulder injury, according to a source.
Huddle Up: This news is somewhat surprising, given that Ivory participated in two full practice sessions and one limited session during the week. LeSean McCoy (hamstring) no longer appears on the injury report and will be active versus the Patriots but he should not be viewed as anything more than a low-end flex option in most fantasy formats.
Zay Jones - WRPosted 12/23/18 2:22pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones caught five passes for 67 yards and one touchdown against the New England Patriots in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Jones bounced back after a few disappointing performances and has been targeted at least six times in each of the last four games. He can be considered at least a flex option in point-per-reception leagues next week.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/23/18 2:14pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed for nine yards on six carries against the New England Patriots in Week 16. He also caught three passes for 10 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: McCoy was returning from an injury but was not able to do much against the Patriots. He should have more success next week but may only be flex option in fantasy leagues.
Josh Allen - QBPosted 12/23/18 2:06pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen went 20-for-41 for 217 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the New England Patriots in Week 16. He also rushed for 30 yards on five carries.
Huddle Up: Allen has thrown for at least 200 yards in each of the last four games but also has six interceptions during that span. He will continue to have some fantasy value because of his running ability but should not be a starting option next week.
Robert Foster - WRPosted 12/23/18 2:27pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Foster caught four passes for 52 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Foster has been targeted 20 times over the last three games and has recorded 264 yards during that span. He will continue to have a solid role in the passing game and could be a flex option in some leagues.
Keith Ford - RBPosted 12/23/18 11:38pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Keith Ford carried seven times for 33 yards against the New England Patriots on Sunday, Dec. 23. Ford also caught two passes for 14 yards.
Huddle Up: Ford drew the start over LeSean McCoy for disciplinary reasons and was also more effective than Shady. With the freshly eliminated Dolphins coming to town next Sunday, Ford has some sneaky upside.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/21/18 10:44am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is 'ready to go' in Week 16, head coach Sean McDermott said Friday, Dec. 21.
Huddle Up: McCoy, who missed Week 15, is most definitely needed given the Bills' running-back health situation and should be considered a low-end flex consideration.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/21/18 2:20pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 21 and he is listed as questionable for Week 16 against the New England Patriots.
Huddle Up: Ivory is likely to take a back seat or perhaps split carries with LeSean McCoy (hamstring), who is active and off the injury report. Don't bank on Ivory doing very much in terms of fantasy production.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/20/18 11:48am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) said he believes he will be able to play in the Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: McCoy was not able to play last week but appears to be on track to play against the New England Patriots. He will be a risky option because of the injury but can be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he receives his usual workload.
Chris Ivory - RBPosted 12/20/18 12:47pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB Chris Ivory (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Ivory likely will serve as the backup running back this week if LeSean McCoy is able to play and would only receive a handful of carries. He can be avoided in all leagues unless McCoy is ruled out.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/20/18 12:38pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: McCoy probably will receive a normal workload as long as he does not suffer a setback over the next few days. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.
Josh Allen - QBPosted 12/20/18 8:01pm ET
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen 'looks like a different player' the last few games, according to head coach Sean McDermott. 'The way the game is slowing down for him is encouraging,' McDermott said.
Huddle Up: Allen's passing stats don't show a lot of growth, but he has legitimate QB1 upside because of his running ability. He has had at least 99 rushing yards in three of the last four games, adding three rushing touchdowns in that span. Consider him a high-risk, high-reward option against the New England Patriots in Week 16.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/19/18 2:17pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 19.
Huddle Up: We may need to keep tabs on McCoy's status up until kickoff as he appears to be headed for a questionable tag. Beware of starting him if he's active. If you're in the championship you may very well have more reliable options.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 12/16/18 5:48am ET
Buffalo Bills RB Marcus Murphy could receive the bulk of the carries for Week 15's game against the Detroit Lions if RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) are deactivated.
Huddle Up: Murphy is averaging 5.2 yards on 41 carries this season but should not be viewed as anything more than a desperation flex option in deep seasonal leagues if both McCoy and Ivory are held out of action. Keith Ford, who was promoted from the practice squad earlier in the week, could also receive a handful of carries versus Detroit but he is not a viable fantasy option.
