The Bills appeared to have a nice asset at several points last season, but never utilized Clay enough. This season, Rex Ryan figures to make Clay a bigger part of the game plan, and especially if Sammy Watkins spends more time injured. Clay is a nice high-ceiling piece to grab late in drafts.

Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay did not participate in the team's third pre-season game against the Washington Redskins Friday night, as first reported on the team's official website. The decision was not injury related - Head Coach Rex Ryan held out or severely limited several key players as a precautionary measure, having lost several players already in recent weeks to injury and/or suspension. "At this point it’s most important for us to get to the opening game healthy," Ryan said. "We have to be smart about it.” (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Clay's absence from the game isn't anything to concern yourself with - but the same could be said for his prospects in fantasy. He is a talented player, and a key cog in the Bills offense, but his track record is that of a player with greater value to the Bills than to your fantasy roster. There have been rumblings this off-season about an increased role for him in the coming season, but until/unless he demonstrates more consistent production, Clay is a player barely on the fringe of fantasy relevance.

I've always liked Clay's ability, but his body continues to betray him with injuries. If he were to remain healthy all season, I think he moves up the rankings pretty far, but I can't trust him for anything more than a back-up tight end this year

Health continues to be a major concern.

He's super safe and was solid last year but Bills run a good amount and he can disappear for stretches.
