Summary

In a year when most of the players in the Bills front 7 underachieved, Hughes was not immune. His sacks were down from prior levels, as he tied for the team lead with only 5. With Mario Williams now gone, Hughes is clearly the best edge rusher on the team so he will get plenty of opportunity, but that could also lead to some more attention from opposing blockers. As most league hosts changed his position from DE to LB, his fantasy value figures to take a hit since he won't put up enough tackles to be considered a reliable everyweek starter in balanced scoring systems. That being said, he's in a good situation and could certainly make a run at 10+ sacks. (May 27)
