Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams was carrying extra weight during minicamp, and said he ate so his pregnant fiance wouldn't feel bad. He has plenty of time to get into shape, but he'll need to be in top form to hold off hungry RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams.
Fantasy Tip: Williams looked like a No. 1 tailback last season when given the chance to carry the load, but the fact he isn't in top shape is a concern. Wait to see how he shapes up in training camp and the preseason before risking anything more than a late-round flier on him.

Buffalo Bills RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams saw the reps in practice Wednesday, June 15, with RBs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams sidelined. Williams was most impressive in the practice, showing surprising ability to shift direction and make defenders miss.
Fantasy Tip: McCoy and Karlos Williams are the top two backs, but the rest of the jobs behind them are wide open. We've seen before that the No. 3 back in Buffalo can be valuable, especially with McCoy's propensity for injury of late. For now, the winner of the No. 3 battle isn't worth drafting in most fantasy leagues, but watch the early-season returns and the waiver wire. Know the depth chart in case injury strikes one of the top two.

Buffalo Bills RB James Wilder Jr. has looked good in organized team activities and has played a lot bigger and faster than expected, in the opinion of The Buffalo News' Tyler Dunne. However, Wilder has an uphill battle to make the roster after the team drafted RB Jonathan Williams. RB Mike Gillislee is also behind RBs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams, and Buffalo also just signed RB Dan Herron.
