Charles Clay ends season with a whimper

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay was not able to sustain his recent hot streak of production in his team's Week 17 loss to the New York Jets. Clay was second on the team in targets with seven, but caught just three of them for 20 yards, and no touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact

It was virtually impossible for Clay to keep up his solid pace, with the Bills using this game to take prospective looks at QBs EJ Manuel and Cardale Jones, neither of whom saw more than a handful of snaps so far this season. Clay's prospects going into next season will largely be contingent upon the incoming coaching staff, as well as a potential change in personnel at QB. As he showed over his last several games (not including this one), he can be a valuable fantasy asset when given the opportunity.

Charles Clay has dominant performance against Dolphins

Charles Clay caught eight of 10 targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday against the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

It was a good bet that the Bills would try to get Clay involved against his former team, and Clay certainly delivered. Clay set season highs in targets, receptions, yards, and touchdowns, and now has four TDs over his last three games. He'll look to continue his recent solid production in Week 17 against the Jets.

Charles clay leads team in receiving in blowout

Charles Clay had his best fantasy performance of the season in his team's Week 15 home win over the Cleveland Browns. Clay led the team in targets (seven), receptions (seven) and receiving yards (72), converting one of his receptions for a touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

This is now consecutive weeks with a receiving score for Clay, after being held out of the end zone for the entire season prior to Week 14. The late season surge in production is encouraging, and is more indicative of how the Bills view him in light of the contract they signed him to. Ideally, you'd like him to see him deliver at least one more week of this kind of production before completely trusting him in your lineup, especially in the fantasy playoffs. That said, he could be worth a roll of the dice for owners absent a rock-solid option at the position.

Charles Clay scores in return

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay, who missed last week's game due to the birth of his first child, had a productive return to the team in their week 14 home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. He tied for second on the team in targets with six, hauling in three of them for 52 yards and a TD, his first of the season.

Fantasy Impact

This was Clay's most productive fantasy day on the season, but one that is likely to be an outlier in an otherwise disappointing campaign, rather than the start of a late season surge. Clay is still best left off of rosters in 10 or 12 team leagues.

Charles Clay INACTIVE for Week 13

Buffalo Bills tight end Charles Clay is inactive for Week 13.

Fantasy Impact

Clay is a healthy scratch Sunday as he did not travel with the team to Oakland due to the birth of his child. Nick O'Leary will likely start for Clay in Week 13.
