  Bills | Two TEs splitting first-team snaps    Thu May 30, 06:16 PM

Buffalo Bills TEs Lee Smith and Dawson Knox shared snaps with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, May 28, because TE Tyler Kroft (foot) and TE Jason Croom (hamstring) are dealing with injuries.

Footballguys view: The Bills tight end room is really banged up right now. Smith is a big-bodied blocker but Knox is the intriguing receiving option here. The rookie from Ole Miss can get open and be a threat over the middle of the field. We'll watch him in dynasty formats.

  Bills | Lee Smith signs with Bills    Mon May 13, 09:50 AM

Free-agent TE Lee Smith (Raiders) signed a three-year deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, May 13. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: This is Smith's second stint with the Bills. A fifth-round pick out of Marshall in 2011 (Patriots), Smith failed to make the 53-man roster in New England and was quickly scooped up by the Bills. He was in Buffalo from 2011-2014 before moving on to the Raiders. Smith is a big-bodied blocker and not much of a fantasy factor.

  Raiders | Oakland parts with Lee Smith    Thu May 2, 05:07 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Lee Smith was released Thursday, May 2, according to a source.

Footballguys view: When they drafted Foster Moreau (LSU) in the 2019 NFL draft, it meant someone from the tight end room had to go. That's Smith, a big-bodied veteran known mostly as a blocker.

  Raiders | Lee Smith retained by Oakland    Wed Mar 14, 01:49 PM

Free-agent TE Lee Smith (Raiders) is re-signing with the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Smith is a big-bodied blocker. He played 341 snaps last year for the Raiders but only had eight catches for 76 yards. His role will remain the same.

  Raiders | Oakland injury report for Week 8    Fri Oct 27, 03:52 PM

Oakland Raiders CB David Amerson (foot) and CB Gareon Conley (shin) did not participate in practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 8 versus the Buffalo Bills. S Karl Joseph (groin) did not practice for the second straight day Friday, Oct. 27, and is listed as doubtful. LB Cory James (knee), LB Marquel Lee (ankle), LB Nicholas Morrow (ankle), OT Marshall Newhouse (foot) and P Marquette King (groin) all were limited in practice Friday and are listed as questionable. TE Lee Smith (knee) practiced in full Friday and no longer appears on the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Raiders will be missing two key corners for the matchup with Tyrod Taylor. Jordan Matthews and Deonte Thompson could be slightly more attractive with the improvement in outlook, and Taylor is a strong streamer this week.

  Raiders | Lee Smith listed as starter    Mon Aug 7, 02:16 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Lee Smith is listed as the starting tight end ahead of TE Jared Cook on the Raiders' initial depth chart.

Footballguys view: Let the faux outrage begin! Cook is going to have to work his way up the depth chart, but it's something we all expect him to do. We also expect him to somewhat disappoint and fail to play up to his potential because that's what he's done nearly every year of his pro career.

  Raiders | Lee Smith will be ready for workouts    Mon Feb 13, 08:20 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Lee Smith (ankle) will be ready for the offseason workouts after missing most of the season because of a broken ankle.

Footballguys view: Smith is a big-bodied blocker, but he offers little as a receiver. The Raiders have a high-powered offense, but they've been putting up points without a consistent presence at tight end. In this fantastic tight end class, we should see them select one in the 2017 NFL draft.

  Raiders | Clive Walford listed as backup    Mon Aug 8, 02:14 PM

Oakland Raiders TE Clive Walford is not listed as the starting tight end on Raiders' initial depth chart. TE Lee Smith is listed ahead of Walford.

Footballguys view: Walford is a favorite dynasty TE for us, but he clearly needs to impress more in camp to win that top spot on the depth chart. Smith is a big TE, but he lacks the athleticism and seam-stretching ability of Walford.

The Buffalo Bills have declared RB Bryce Brown, OG Cyril Richardson, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, LB Drew Smith, FS Jonathan Meeks, TE Lee Smith, CB Stephon Gilmore inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Anthony Dixon's hamstring must have been ok. Brown being inactive on game days means he'll be a drop in most leagues next week. There is value in the Bills #3 runner, but it doesn't appear that Brown has that spot unless Dixon is up because of fullback and special teams abilities.

RB Anthony Dixon (hamstring) did not practice and is questionable. CB Stephon Gilmore (groin) fully practiced and is questionable. FS Jonathan Meeks (neck) was limited in practice and is doubtful. TE Lee Smith (toe) did not practice and is doubtful.

Footballguys view: With Dixon questionable, Bryce Brown should have the #3 RB role all to himself, which will be a chance to get a stronger hold on the potentially valuable job.

Footballguys view: The defense should be the one thing this team can count on, but it doesn't look that way given some of the injuries. The good thing is Gilmore's return as the Bills will need a ton of help facing Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. This looks like a bad opening weekend for the Bills though.
