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. (August 7)

Bills | Buffalo resting several defensive players (Fri Aug 26, 06:29 PM) - Buffalo Bills DT Kyle Williams, LB Preston Brown, LB Jerry Hughes, CB Stephon Gilmore and CB Ronald Darby will not play in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins Friday, Aug. 26.

Our View: Don't read too much into Washington's easy time moving the ball against Buffalo tonight. They are being very cautious with their starters after losing Reggie Ragland and IK Enemkpali this summer.
