WR - WAS
This Week Outlook
The Washington Football Team is reportedly signing WR Robert Foster.
Foster could end up seeing some playing time as Washington doesn't have any receiver depth behind No. 1 wideout Terry McLaurin. Foster, a former Buffalo Bill, certainly isn't on the fantasy radar right now.
Robert Foster remains in the leagues concussion protocol, after being out of practices since Tuesday. There is yet to be an update on Foster's status, but the absence from practice points towards an injury.
Foster seemed to have a connection with quarterback Josh Allen in his rookie year, but that his since faded as the Bills have upgraded their receivers. Foster was already on the bubble of making the team's final roster so any missed time will hurt his chances. Hopefully Foster can return to the field and make the Bills roster, but if he remains in concussion protocol the Bills may look elsewhere to fill their remaining receiver spots.
Robert Foster continues to slide down the depth chart in Buffalo, and is now rumoured to be facing an "uphill climb" to make the final 53-man roster according to Joe Buscaglia of the Athletic. As an undrafted rookie in 2018 he contributed with 541 receiving yards and three touchdowns. However, last season he only caught three passes in 13 games.
Since his breakout rookie season the Bills have added Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, John Brown, Duke Williams, and most recently Gabriel Davis whom they selected in the fourth round of the 2020 Draft. In all likelihood, Foster would need to be released by the Bills and sign with a pass-orientated team with limited options at receiver in order to have any semblance of fantasy relevance this season.
The Bills have re-signed wide receiver Robert Foster to a one-year contract.
Foster burst onto the fantasy scene in 2018, but he was very quiet last season following the additions of John Brown and Cole Beasley. There doesn't seem to be a clear path for playing time for Foster this year. While he's an interesting name to keep in mind if he eventually moves to a new team and increased opportunity, he's not someone that figures to be fantasy relevant in 2020.
Robert Foster caught zero of his four targets in the Bills' Week 17 loss to the Jets.
With both John Brown and Cole Beasley inactive, Foster was thrust into a starting role and delivered one of the epic faceplants of the season. Foster, despite an impressive rookie campaign, has struggled to catch on since then. He's unlikely to rebound at this point and is a cut candidate in all formats including dynasty leagues.
