Summary

The Bills just don't use the tight end position a ton, though it is worth noting that Clay scored touchdowns in three out of the last four games of the 2016 season, including two against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16. That said, at the time quarterback Tyrod Taylor was short on options. While it could happen again this year, and the injuries could mount up, it's not something to bet on. However, Clay is a solid checkdown option for the Bills quarterback, and will be on the field a lot given he can both block and catch the ball. That gives him more access to opportunity, but it's hard to imagine that those opportunities will translate to production. More likely it will translate to chances to block for LeSean McCoy.

Bills | Charles Clay receives day off (Thu Aug 3, 06:18 PM) - 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.

Our View: The team will have to manage Clay's reps to keep his knee issues from flaring up. This will likely limit his upside in fantasy and limit him to a bye/injury/emergency option.
