Buffalo Bills news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 21 Oct 2016 07:54:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fridays are usually walkthroughs, and it's tough to tell how healthy his hamstring is. There have been multiple reports that he's unlikely to play this week. Even if he goes, you'd have to believe he'd be on some sort of restriction. Mike Gillislee has a 17-117-2 line on the season, and the matchup against the Miami Dolphins is a good one. McCoy is probably going to be a game-time decision, and he's a flex option for now. Gillislee is a flex candidate, but if McCoy is limited, he obviously has upside.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Gillislee has a 17-117-2 line on the season and has a great matchup against the Miami Dolphins. He's a good flex grab for Week 7.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be considered a game-time decision for the team's Week 7 game Sunday, Oct. 23, according to a person with direct knowledge of the star running back's hamstring injury. Head coach Rex Ryan is "hopeful" that McCoy can play.
Fantasy Tip: Well, luckily, it's one of the early-afternoon games on the slate, so owners will have a chance to get him out of the lineup in case he doesn't suit up. This would be very unfortunate if McCoy has to miss any time, as he's second in the NFL right now with 587 rushing yards, while also scoring seven touchdowns, but it appears it wouldn't be a surprise if he were to miss a week or two at this point. If McCoy can't go this week, Mike Gillislee is lined up to start and would be worth deploying in all formats for his strong potential.

Fantasy Tip: Clay actually isn't too shabby of a start this week, assuming he's able to go. Sammy Watkins is already out, LeSean McCoy won't be playing and Robert Woods looks pretty iffy. Clay is a fringe TE1 as he should see plenty of targets.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 11:30:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It appears like Woods may be a game-time decision for the game, which would make him a risky option for owners. He has been the Bills' No. 1 receiver over the past few weeks, but owners in most leagues should be able to find other options to use because of his uncertain status.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 11:08:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McCoy could be a game-time decision for Week 7, so owners should monitor his progress over the next few days. He will be a risky option if he is active because of the injury but should still be a starting option. Mike Gillislee likely would start if McCoy is ruled out and could be a flex option for owners.

Fantasy Tip: Woods may be a game-time decision for Week 7, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He has been a solid part of the passing game this season and could be a flex option in some leagues if he is active.
Thu, 20 Oct 2016 09:09:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: McCoy suffered the injury during practice Wednesday, Oct. 19, so there is a chance that may need to sit out this week. McCoy should be a starting option if he plays, but Mike Gillislee would be a decent flex option if McCoy is ruled out.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has a 17-117-2 line on the season, which is super productive. However, he has never shown featured-back ability. If Shady McCoy is unable to go, Gillislee would be a marginal flex option against the Miami Dolphins.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) suffered a "mild to moderate" hamstring strain Wednesday, Oct. 19, at practice, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Fantasy Tip: If McCoy is able to play, he will face the league's 31st-ranked rush defense. Shady is a top fantasy option in all formats in Week 7 as long as he is active.

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus (hamstring), Cordy Glenn (ankle), OT Seantrel Henderson (back) and LB Lerentee McCray (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 19. FB Jerome Felton (back), OT Cyrus Kouandjio (ankle), C Patrick Lewis (knee), CB Kevon Seymour (shoulder) and CB Corey White (shoulder) were limited during practice.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 16:01:58 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Clay has been receiving Wednesdays off for most of the season, so this should not be a surprise. He likely will be able to play in Week 7 and could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues because he has been consistent over the last few weeks.
Wed, 19 Oct 2016 15:41:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The severity of Woods' injury is not known, so his status for Week 7 is uncertain at this point. He has been the No. 1 receiver for the Bills over the past few weeks but has more than 50 yards in only two of his six games this season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.
