  Bills | Reggie Bush could be released    Tue Sep 27, 11:45 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush's spot on the roster could be in trouble, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak. Bush was active but did not play in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Stay tuned here as the primary backup to LeSean McCoy could end up being Mike Gillislee. The Bills will need to clear room after Week 4 when both DT Marcell Dareus and OT Seantrel Henderson return from suspension.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins will work out foot    Tue Sep 27, 07:15 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will gauge his pain tolerance later in the week to see if he is able to play in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners need to find other options -- even if Watkins is going to play. He's clearly been bothered by this foot when on the field, and we want to see him look like his old self before trusting him.

  Bills | LeSean McCoy records two TDs    Sun Sep 25, 05:30 PM

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 110 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. He also caught three passes for six yards during the game.

Footballguys view: McCoy was as sudden and explosive as he has been in a Bills uniform, restoring faith as a fantasy RB2 even while the Bills have very little to threaten opposing defenses. With the running back position depleted, he'll still be a worthy RB2 against the Patriots next week.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor produces with arm, legs    Sun Sep 25, 05:25 PM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 14-for-25 for 119 yards and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on nine carries during the game.

Footballguys view: The Bills offense got back to basics, which included Taylor on some designed runs, one of which went for a score. He's still a low ceiling play as long as Sammy Watkins isn't himself, which looks like it could be the case all year.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins won't play Sunday    Sun Sep 25, 09:38 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will not play in Week 3's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source. WR Marquise Goodwin will start in his place.

Footballguys view: Watkins foot injury is going in the wrong direction and we are only three weeks into the season. The rest could help, but that he needs the rest this early is a terrible sign. If the Bills season goes south, Watkins could be put on the shelf.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to play tomorrow?    Sun Sep 25, 12:27 AM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) tweeted he was, 'Ready to go out there and compete at the highest level!' on Saturday, Sept. 24, but the tweet was later deleted.

Footballguys view: It doesn't look like Watkins will go in Week 3. The entire Bills offense is a fade with him on the sidelines.

  Bills | Buffalo hoping Sammy Watkins can play    Sat Sep 24, 05:44 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is still considered questionable for Week 3, but the Bills are holding out hope that he will be able to play. His status will depend on how he feels during pregame warmups.

Footballguys view: Find other options if you have Sammy Watkins on your team. The Bills at least have an early game (1pm ET) against the Cardinals in Buffalo.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins questionable    Fri Sep 23, 05:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Watkins is on the doubtful side of questionable, and he has showed us little reason to trust him in our lineups, especially when he'll see Patrick Peterson if he goes on Sunday. The Bills offense is in bad bad shape without a full speed Watkins.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins idle Friday    Fri Sep 23, 10:50 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is out of practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: Watkins is officially questionable after a teammate stepped on his foot during a walk through. He's not worth playing even if he is active, as the Cardinals will likely assign Patrick Peterson to Watkins despite the Bills #1 receiver being hobbled.

  Bills | Charles Clay limited in practice    Thu Sep 22, 08:23 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Clay has done nothing so far, and while he might get a slight bump if Sammy Watkins is out, it's not enough to warrant a start. We wouldn't even have him on the roster.

  Bills | Greg Salas suffers injury    Thu Sep 22, 02:08 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Greg Salas (groin) suffered a groin injury during practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Along with Marquise Goodwin, Salas will not get enough of a bump to even be a desperation play if Sammy Watkins is out and we would avoid this completely.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins' status uncertain    Thu Sep 22, 02:00 PM

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said there is some concern that WR Sammy Watkins (foot) may not be able to play in Week 3 after he missed practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: That will put more pressure on Anthony Lynn to try and find a way to make the offense work. The team is reportedly trying to simplify things, but what that looks like is hard to know. We'd avoid the receivers here if Watkins is out and buy stock in LeSean McCoy, who should be a solid RB2.

  Bills | Charles Clay practicing    Thu Sep 22, 12:13 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Clay doesn't get much work and doesn't do much with what he gets. Arizona is an awful matchup, so we're not using him this week.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins not on the field    Thu Sep 22, 12:07 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not participating in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: Watkins did almost nothing against the Jets last week, so we were already concerned. We knew the Bills would take it easy with him this week, so watch for tomorrow to get a real indication of where he's at. We don't like the matchup here with Arizona either, so this is all around bad.

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins misses practice    Wed Sep 21, 06:38 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: Watkins may be able to practice on Friday. He should be able to play this week, but we're cool on his prospects as he continues to deal with this injury. Fantasy owners should consider him a WR4 against the Cardinals in Week 3.

  Bills | Robert Woods to get more involved?    Mon Sep 19, 01:47 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods received a nod from teammate Sammy Watkins recently, as Watkins suggested Woods 'has been open and needs to get the ball more often', according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.

Footballguys view: Woods has a bunch of natural talent, but he's never played up to his potential. In the Bills offense, the air is not going to get filled with footballs and that limits Woods value.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to be limited    Mon Sep 19, 11:39 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will be limited in practice this week, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: No shock here. The Bills have a long week since they played on Thursday night, and that gives Watkins extra time to rest. Check back on Friday to see what his practice status is.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins to see more action    Fri Sep 16, 05:23 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins is 'a special talent' and the team will 'try to get him the football more' going forward, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Watkins needs to look more comfortable and play with consistent speed and quickness before that plan will turn into consistent fantasy numbers for him. Having extra time before the matchup with Arizona in Week 3 is a plus, but Watkins isn't close to being the boom/bust WR1 we thought we got when we drafted him this summer.

  Bills | Front office forced Greg Roman's ouster    Fri Sep 16, 04:15 PM

Updating a previous report, the Buffalo Bills' front office 'leaned' on head coach Rex Ryan to make a significant change in the wake of the team's 37-31 loss in Week 2 to the New York Jets, leading to the dismissal of former offensive coordinator Greg Roman on Friday, Sept. 16.

  Bills | OC Greg Roman out in Buffalo?    Fri Sep 16, 01:26 PM

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman is on the verge of getting fired, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The void left behind by Roman, who entered the season as the league's highest-paid offensive coordinator, will reportedly be filled by assistant head coach/running backs coach Anthony Lynn.

Footballguys view: Lynn was known for his mancrush on Shonn Greene back in his time with the Jets. The Jets were almost exclusively RBBC during Lynn's tenure as running back coach. There's no way to spin this as a good thing for the Bills, who actually had worse problems on the defensive side of the ball last night.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor with solid game    Fri Sep 16, 08:08 AM

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was 18-for-30 (60%) for 297 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Taylor's stat line was inflated by a Marquise Goodwin 84-yard bomb, a long score to Greg Salas on an extended play, and a garbage time score. He was mostly ineffective and is not a trustworthy fantasy quarterback heading into a matchup with Arizona next week.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins on the sidelines late    Fri Sep 16, 12:28 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins finished with two catches for 20 yards on five targets in a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 15, and head coach Rex Ryan offered no update on why Watkins didn't play in the final two series.

Footballguys view: Watkins was clearly uncomfortable, and while he did get free deep once (only for Tyrod Taylor to underthrow the ball and have it picked off), Watkins' usual speed and quickness just weren't there. He has extra days of rest before Arizona next week, but he needs rest on the order of weeks to get anywhere near his typical form this year. He's a sell if you can still get even half of his draft day value.

  Bills | Marquise Goodwin scores, exits late    Fri Sep 16, 12:24 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Marquise Goodwin (concussion) was injured on the final play of a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 15, and is in concussion protocol. He finished with two catches for 108 yards, including an 84-yard touchdown.

Footballguys view: Goodwin suffered a concussion in practice in late August, so this is very concerning. His speed jumpstarted the Bills offense, but it's a stretch to see him ready for next week's game against Arizona with two concussions in less than a month.

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is active for the team's Week 2 contest Thursday, September 15, against the New York Jets.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins' status still uncertain    Thu Sep 15, 02:13 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) wants to play against the New York Jets in Week 2, but it is not known if the doctors will clear him to play, according to a source.

Footballguys view: If he's out, that's going to spell trouble for the Bills. He was most of their game plan for passing downs last week. It does mean LeSean McCoy should get more work but the matchup with the Jets front line is brutal. McCoy is just an RB2 even if the volume of carries is a lot more.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins likely to play    Thu Sep 15, 08:11 AM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) wants to play and likely will do so Thursday, Sept. 15, against the New York Jets, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Watkins looked pretty good despite his injury last week, and Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis didn't look good at all. We expect the Jets to send safety help to Revis and the Bills have precious few alternatives in the passing game, so blanketing Watkins might not hurt. We'd still avoid Watkins as more than a WR4/WR5 and look for a better option from Sunday's slate.

  Bills | Rex Ryan hopeful on Sammy Watkins    Thu Sep 15, 01:51 AM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) might be able to play in the Week 2 game against the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 15. He is confident he'll be ready, and head coach Rex Ryan remains hopeful. 'I hope he's right,' Ryan said.

Footballguys view: It's a decent matchup against Darrelle Revis, who looks like he has lost a bit of his mojo. The Jets secondary will adjust and give Revis more help, and Watkins could be hampered a bit by his foot injury, so we are hesitant to start him as more than a WR5 this week. Find a safer matchup from Sunday's docket.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins listed as questionable     Wed Sep 14, 12:37 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is listed as questionable for the Week 2 game against the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 14.

Footballguys view: Watkins feels he's going to play, but that's no guarantee. Even if Watkins does play, we're not excited about his fantasy potential. He clearly didn't look like himself in Week 1 and this week he's facing Jets CB Darrelle Revis on Thursday night.
