Summary

Clay had the third most targets on the Bills last year, but that 77 doesn't even get him close to the top tight ends in the NFL, most of whom get above 100 in 2015. He did make the most of his chances, catching 66 percent of his targets for 528 yards and considering that this team runs more than anything else, it's not too bad a total. It's also not a dependable total though, especially with just three touchdowns to his name last year. Given the style of offense, we don't expect the totals to rise this coming year, despite a lack of good options beyond Sammy Watkins. (May 20)

Bills | Charles Clay out of action (Tue May 24, 12:44 PM) - Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay (undisclosed) was absent from practice Tuesday, May 24, with an undisclosed injury. Head coach Rex Ryan doesn't think Clay's injury is serious.

Our View: This is not a good way for Clay to begin his second season with the Bills. Last year, Clay was held back by injury and turned in a disappointing season. With WR Sammy Watkins (foot) banged up (and not much behind him at WR), the Bills could certainly use Clay in a larger role as a receiver in 2016.

Bills | Better year for Charles Clay? (Sat May 21, 02:53 PM) - Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay is expected to be more productive in his second season with the Bills, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman. More looks his way and better health are considered to be two key factors in what Buffalo hopes to be a better season for Clay.

Our View: Fantasy owners need to take note here. Clay is currently going undrafted in 12-team PPR leagues, and he should certainly be able to outperform expectations after a disappointing year in 2015. Back with the Dolphins in 2013, Clay was the 7th-best fantasy TE with 69 catches, 759 yards and six touchdowns. The injury to Sammy Watkins, and the questionable talent behind Watkins at the WR position, could force Clay to get more than the 51 receptions he had last year.
