  Bills | Charles Clay will not play vs. Washington    Fri Aug 26, 06:29 PM

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Clay has had knee and back issues to contend with, so the team is being careful with a player that they hope can contribute more to the passing game this year. Clay is a late round tight end with injury upside despite being in a low volume pass offense.

  Bills | LeSean McCoy sitting out Friday    Fri Aug 26, 06:07 PM

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: McCoy is fine, but the Bills are being careful with their core pieces after injuries have hit their offensive line and linebackers during camp. McCoy had a bad hamstring injury last summer that affected him into the season, so he's ahead of last year so far.

  Bills | Sore shoulder for Cardale Jones    Tue Aug 23, 05:47 PM

Buffalo Bills rookie QB Cardale Jones (shoulder) is dealing with a sore shoulder, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Jones may be put on the shelf for a bit while he deals with this. He's got a big arm but needs to work on the nuances of the position. Jones is a strong-armed dynasty prospect we're keeping an eye on.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins will play Friday    Tue Aug 23, 02:37 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is good to go against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26. He won't play much, but head coach Rex Ryan believes he's ready.

Footballguys view: We don't need to see much of Watkins on Friday. The Bills should limit his reps in this game with an eye on having him near full strength for the start of the regular season.

  Bills | Mike Gillislee favored for No. 2 back    Mon Aug 22, 06:29 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee (concussion) is 'probably the No. 2 back right now', according to head coach Rex Ryan. Gillislee is still in the concussion protocol, however.

Footballguys view: So many different opinions here, but Ryan thinks Gillislee is the guy. Some beat writers think Reggie Bush is the favorite, while others say Gilislee...while there's rookie Johnathan Williams thrown into the mix. We'll have to see how things shake out in Buffalo.

  Bills | Karlos Williams was gaining weight    Sat Aug 20, 11:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams was beginning to gain the weight he had lost, demonstrating to the team he was not serious about football, a source said Saturday, Aug. 20.

  Bills | LeSean McCoy visits the end zone    Sat Aug 20, 07:21 PM

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was held to no yards on five carries, but he caught four passes for 58 yards - including a 13-yard touchdown - against the New York Giants on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: McCoy is one of the few true feature backs in the league and he's going in the third round. The injuries did pile up last year, but McCoy was running well before going down in December.

  Bills | Reggie Bush expected to win No. 2 RB job    Sat Aug 20, 05:51 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush has been considered the favorite to serve as the direct backup for RB LeSean McCoy since the former was signed earlier this month, even before the release of Karlos Williams, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.

Footballguys view: Bush hasn't done anything meaningful on the field for over a year, with only 12 touches last year, so he's not really worth running out to get as a handcuff to McCoy. He'll be on the waiver wire watch list to open the season, but we suspect that he would yield to another back soon enough if he was asked to play a significant number of snaps.

  Bills | Mike Gillislee leaves with head injury    Sat Aug 20, 05:17 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee (head) left the game following a hard hit at the end of the first quarter on Saturday, Aug. 20, against the New York Giants and is being evaluated for concussion.

Footballguys view: Reggie Bush is now the backup to LeSean McCoy, but fifth-round rookie Jonathan Williams has also been impressive and could move up the depth chart. Bush was not able to stay healthy last year after the 49ers signed him to play a role in their backfield.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins sidelined    Sat Aug 20, 03:34 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is not playing against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 20.

Footballguys view: Watkins has been his old self in practices and appears to be on track to deliver on the 3rd round price he is currently commanding in redraft leagues. Hopefully the team will let him open up the throttle and play next week, but it shouldn't be considered a bad sign if he doesn't.

  Bills | Karlos Williams likely to be released    Sat Aug 20, 02:10 PM

The Buffalo Bills are expected to release RB Karlos Williams, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Mike Gillislee will back up LeSean McCoy, but watch out for fifth round rookie Jonathan Williams to push Gillislee and be part of a committee if McCoy goes down. Reggie Bush will be a return man and perhaps play some on passing downs if he makes the team, but that is not a given.

  Bills | Sammy Watkins may play    Thu Aug 18, 11:38 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) could play against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 20, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Footballguys view: Watkins is on track to be full speed to open the season against the Ravens. We will project him as a WR1 any time he is not a game-time decision, but Watkins is often available for a WR2 price in the third round because of his injury history/risk.

  Bills | Marcell Dareus missed test    Wed Aug 17, 02:08 PM

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus said he was suspended for four games because he missed a drug test.

Footballguys view: A missed test is the same as a hot test. From a financial standpoint, Dareus loses four game checks but his contract was structured where he doesn't lose any of his guaranteed money due to drug suspensions. Dareus carries a $14.5 million cap hit this year with a whopping $47 million left in dead money.

  Bills | Cordy Glenn ditches walking boot    Tue Aug 16, 08:45 PM

Buffalo Bills OT Cordy Glenn (foot) shed the walking boot from his injured left foot. Glenn is still expected to be sidelined for the preseason.

Footballguys view: The team is being careful with their best offensive lineman. Glenn signed a long term extension this offseason and the Bills are going to protect their investment.

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus faces a four-game suspension for another violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, according to sources.

Footballguys view: This has not been a great offseason for the Bills. Their defense has been ravaged by key injuries and now this suspension will further damage their squad. Expect Dareus to appeal the suspension, but don't expect him to reduce the sentence.

Free-agent DE Kroy Biermann (Falcons) is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source. The financial terms have not been disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Bills outside linebacker group is depleted, so Biermann should get playing time early in the season. Rex Ryan's defense will need to take chances to generate pressure.

Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams (illness) passed his physical Monday, Aug. 15, and will practice after a stint on the Non-Football Illness list.

Footballguys view: Williams is still not draftable except in very deep leagues with a four-game suspension, but if he can get back up to speed without any injuries, he should be the #2 back when he returns and set up for injury upside if LeSean McCoy goes down.

  Bills | James Wilder has bad preseason game    Sun Aug 14, 12:25 PM

Buffalo Bills RB James Wilder Jr. rushed for only one yard on five carries against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 13. He also committed two 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalties while playing on special teams.

Footballguys view: Wilder is a power back, but he doesn't run well unless he gets a huge hole and can build up a head of steam. He's on the roster bubble and certainly didn't impress in the first preseason game.

  Bills | Leonard Hankerson struggles    Sun Aug 14, 12:12 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Leonard Hankerson dropped three or four passes during the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 13, and head coach Rex Ryan said the team is expecting more from him.

Footballguys view: Hankerson is a big-bodied WR but he's never been able to consistently produce during his pro career. He's on the roster bubble and has little to no fantasy value even in the deepest dynasty leagues.

  Bills | Reggie Bush expected to sit    Fri Aug 12, 07:33 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts Saturday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Bush is primarily going to be a return man for the Bills. The veteran doesn't need a ton of reps in the preseason, and we may not see much of him before the start of the regular season. Even when the games count, we're not expecting a fantasy-relevant role for Bush in 2016.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to make $9.5 million in 2016 then the team will have to decide if they pick up his option next offseason. Taylor would receive $27.5 million in 2017 and his contract extension would start if the team picks up the option.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor lands big deal    Fri Aug 12, 01:13 PM

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has agreed to terms on six-year, $90 million contract extension. The deal has unspecified team options and could be worth more through incentives.

Footballguys view: Taylor was in the final year of his contract, and he was clearly in line for a raise after his play last year. The Bills have paid him and now the pressure will be on for him to perform, grow and develop. Taylor has electric athleticism and a good pass placement on deep throws. The Bills won't go to the air that often, but when they do expect Taylor to be peppering WR Sammy Watkins with targets. We like Taylor as a QB2 with upside because of his rushing ability.

  Bills | Tyrod Taylor nearing long-term deal    Fri Aug 12, 01:12 PM

  Bills | Dezmin Lewis exits practice    Thu Aug 11, 09:13 PM

Buffalo Bills WR Dezmin Lewis (undisclosed) exited practice following a collision with a teammate Thursday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Another injury for a Bills team which has already lost multiple players to them. Lewis is a raw player who needs more reps to sand off the rough edges so hopefully this isn't major.
