Buffalo Bills news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 04 Sep 2015 17:34:12 -0700
Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams (undisclosed) said he believes he will be able to play in Week 1 after missing time in the preseason because of an undisclosed procedure. Williams believes he will play on special teams and hopes to be part of the running back rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been sidelined for a few weeks because of his injury, so he may be brought back slowly and see limited time on offense. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel said the team has indicated that they will hold three quarterbacks on the roster heading into the regular season. Head coach Rex Ryan was vague on whether he will keep three quarterbacks. Cassel played in only four series in the preseason.
Fantasy Tip: Tyrod Taylor was named the starting quarterback heading into Week 1, but things could change quickly if he fails to deliver. He has the most upside for fantasy owners looking for a sleeper as a backup because of his athleticism and ability to gain chunks of yards with his legs.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) could receive a limited amount of snaps if he plays in Week 1 because of his injury, and the team could hold him out if he is not 100% healthy, according to a source. McCoy said he hopes to be able to play in the game.
Fantasy Tip: McCoy's ($7,000, 14% of cap) status for the game will be updated throughout the week, so owners should keep an eye out for updates. McCoy will receive most of the carries this season but could sit out Week 1 to make sure the injury does not linger. Owners on FantasyScore may want to look for a safer option to use at the position.

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) said he did not do much running or cutting during practice Friday, Sept. 4. McCoy does not know if he will be able to play in Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to see what McCoy ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) can do during practice next week to determine if he will be able to play next week. He will be a risky option on FantasyScore if he plays, so owners may want to look at other options available.

Fantasy Tip: Williams ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has been sidelined for a few weeks because of an undisclosed injury, and his status for Week 1 is uncertain. Williams likely would see limited playing time if he is able to play and should not be an option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has been sidelined for a few weeks because of the hamstring injury but appears to have a chance to play Week 1. Owners will have to check on his practice participation next week because he could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Buffalo Bills PK Dan Carpenter may be on the bubble for 2015, as he appears to be in head coach Rex Ryan's doghouse entering the season. "I'm tired of seeing us miss a field goal. We'll certainly be looking. Nobody earns this job by default," Ryan said.
Fantasy Tip: Don't be surprised if Ryan pulls the trigger and cuts Carpenter before the final roster trims are made. This could be a case where someone is on thin ice.

Buffalo Bills WR Andre Davis has stepped up his game, outperforming seventh-round drat pick WR Dezmin Lewis during training camp and the preseason. The undrafted pick might have at least positioned himself for a practice squad spot after working his way up the ranks.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:36:50 -0700
Buffalo Bills WR Dezmin Lewis is a raw receiver who has showed glimpses of brilliance in training camp and the preseason. He might be headed for the practice squad, although the team could keep him on the active roster rather than risk losing him via waivers.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:36:06 -0700
Buffalo Bills WR Deonte Thompson (undisclosed) has put the heat on WRs Marquise Goodwin and Chris Hogan for the fifth and sixth spots on the active roster, and his performance in training camp and preseason might force the team to keep seven receivers on the 53-man roster. He might need another big performance in the preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 3, but he is dealing with an undisclosed injury.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:35:27 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Matt Simms is not believed to be in line to make the 53-man roster, and "the odds are stacked against" him according to head coach Rex Ryan. However, if the team elects to cut QBs Matt Cassel or EJ Manuel, that could change things dramatically.
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:34:59 -0700
Buffalo Bills WR Marcus Thigpen was considered outside looking in at the start of training camp and the preseason, but he has proved his worth in the return game and is making it difficult on the team to cut him from the 53-man roster.
