Charles Clay finishes with 15 yards in playoff

Charles Clay caught three passes for 15 yards in Buffalo's wild-card loss at Jacksonville. He was targeted six times.

Fantasy Impact

Clay missed a few series with a hamstring injury, and also had an 11-yard gain erased because he stepped out of bounds before the catch. When he was healthy, Clay was Tyrod Taylor's favorite target this year, but "healthy" is a loaded word for oft-injured Clay, which adds some uncertainty to the high-priced tight end's future with the Bills. Taylor's future is even more uncertain, so the fantasy outlook for any Buffalo player is up in the air during the offseason.

Charles Clay limited in Friday's practice

Charles Clay (knee) was limited in Friday's practice.

Fantasy Impact

He's not listed on the Game Status report, so he'll be fine for Sunday's wild-card game at Jacksonville. Clay has had many limited practices for much of the season since returning from a torn meniscus. The Jaguars have been stingy against tight ends but even tougher against wide receivers, so Clay, who's been Tyrod Taylor's favorite target for the past three weeks, should be a good volume DFS play.

Charles Clay leads Bills in receiving again

Charles Clay caught six passes for 64 yards Sunday at Miami. He was targeted eight times, and all of those numbers led the Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Clay now has 27 targets in his last three games, topping 60 yards in two of them. He's become Tyrod Taylor's clear go-to guy, and he should get a lot of looks in the wild-card round against a Jacksonville defense that has elite corners. He provided nice value for DFS bargain hunters this week, and has a good chance to do so again.

Charles Clay says he won't need knee surgery

Bills tight end Charles Clay said he won't need surgery on his knee, and expects to be 100 percent for 2018.

Fantasy Impact

Clay has dealt with a nagging knee injury that caused him to miss three games in October and early November. After he returned, it took some time to return to the usage he was seeing early in the year, but he has been targeted 19 times in the past two games. He faces Miami next, and he has done well against his old team, averaging 6.4 targets, 4.2 catches and 54 yards in five games with three touchdowns. He's a low-end starter for those still playing in Week 17, and a bargain as the 15th-costliest tight end on FanDuel.

Charles Clay leads Bills in targets, drops TD pass

Charles Clay caught four passes for 37 yards Sunday at New England. He was targeted a team-high 10 times.

Fantasy Impact

What would have been a 4-yard touchdown pass went right through Clay's hands just before halftime. He remains Tyrod Taylor's favorite target, but Taylor's inefficiency keeps Clay a low-end fantasy starter at best.
