Updating an earlier report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) may not be in great "football shape" once Week 1 rolls around, according to a source. He's not at full speed in practice but is doing rehab work including light footwork, agility and cardio conditioning. A source told ESPN's Josina Anderson McCoy's MRI showed, what was described internally as, a "small tear," adding: "They say it tore in a spot where it couldn't have been any better for us. It tore in a spot that is kind of high up, surrounded by stronger muscles in the glutes and things like that."
Fantasy Tip: McCoy doesn't sound like a great daily play on FantasyScore for Week 1, but he's still a legit RB1 in traditional leagues. Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown could be one-week plays in the opener.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) seems to be in some danger of missing the season opener Sept. 13. "Well we certainly expect him to be ready to go, I hope," coach Rex Ryan said Monday, Aug. 31. "If not then the next man has to step up. Boobie (Anthony Dixon) got a lot of reps out there today. Bryce Brown got a lot of reps today. So we will see. I am not going to put that all on one man. If he is not ready to go, he won't be in there."
Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on the situation if you're a McCoy owner, obviously. However, this also means that Dixon and/or Brown could be excellent one-week plays in traditional leagues and FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Neither quarterback has any fantasy value behind Tyrod Taylor.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel has no fantasy value as a backup and would only have depth value if he were to start elsewhere.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has the support of his teammates after he was named the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 1. "He's going to be tremendous for this team," said WR Percy Harvin . "With the weapons that we already have I think teams have to worry about that, but now they have to worry about his legs too with the 4.4 speed he puts on the field I think is going to be tremendously dangerous for opponents to prepare for us." Taylor has speed, but he also impressed this preseason with his accuracy from the pocket. He was 19-for-23 for 187 yards and a passer rating of 100.5 when he started with the first-team.
Fantasy Tip: Despite his accuracy and impressiveness during the preseason, Taylor is still a work in progress with his arm. He has plenty of weapons around him in this offense, but Buffalo's committment to the run will limit his fantasy ceiling this season as a low-end QB2.

Fantasy Tip: Harvin should be ready for the start of the regular season. Harvin should be one of the team's top three receivers this season and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Watkins probably will sit out the final preseason game but should be ready for the start of the regular season. Watkins could be a middle- to late-round option in leagues because he should be one of the main receivers on offense for the Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is a developing quarterback with some wheels. He's not as polished as a passer. He'll be a low-end QB2 selection that you can probably take a flyer on late in drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson can still be a capable short-yardage/goal line back for a team so keep him on your watch list. The big question is will Bryce Brown or Anthony Dixon serve as Buffalo's No. 2 behind Shady McCoy? Whichever wins the gig will be worth a RB5 flyer.
