WR - NO
Week 3 Outlook
The New Orleans Saints have elevated WR Kenny Stills from the practice squad to the game day active roster for Sunday against the New England Patriots.
Stills' elevation suggests that New Orleans could be making changes to their receiver corps for Sunday’s game. The Saints have carried just five receivers on the active roster with Tre’Quan Smith on the injured reserve. Meaning a healthy scratch from Marquez Callaway, Deonte Harris, Chris Hogan, Lil'Jordan Humphrey or Ty Montgomery, who have combined for just 164 yards receiving through the first two weeks, seems possible. After being drafted by New Orleans in 2013, Stills played in 31 games for the Saints where he had 95 receptions for 1,572 yards and eight touchdowns. More of a veteran presence at this point in his career, reuniting with Sean Payton is never a bad thing.
Kenny Stills is signing to the Saints’ practice squad after working out for the team Monday.
Kenny Stills going back where it all began. The veteran wide receiver is signing to the Saints' practice squad after working out for the team Monday. Have to figure he's a possible add to the Saints’ active roster sooner than later and has the upside and familiarity with Sean Payton to quickly climb up the team’s depth chart. He’s a player to watch in deeper leagues.
Buffalo Bills WR Kenny Stills has been elevated from the team's practice squad ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The addition of Stills adds even more speed to an explosive Bills' receiving corps helmed by Stefon Diggs and will provide an additional deep threat for the Chiefs secondary to be weary of on Sunday. The former Houston Texans wide out signed with Buffalo as a free agent at the beginning of January. It will be interesting to watch how much chemistry and continuity the newcomer has been able to develop with quarterback Josh Allen in his first start in the AFC Championship game on Sunday night in Arrowhead Stadium.
The Bills officially signed WR Kenny Stills to their practice squad.
This is simply Cole Beasley (knee) insurance. We'll know more about Stills' chances at suiting up for Buffalo's playoff run once we see some practice reports on Beasley.
Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle is reporting that free agent WR Kenny Stills is expected to sign with the Bills.
Stills will officially sign with the Bills and could be practicing with his new team as soon as next week. Buffalo is loaded at wide receiver as his addition is mainly for depth purposes. The 28-year-old WR was waived by Houston earlier this season. Stills hauled in 11 receptions for 144 yards and one touchdown over 10 games for the Texans in 2020.
