Buffalo Bills

AFC East


Jamison Crowder has reportedly suffered a broken ankle in Buffalo’s comeback victory in Week 4 and is out indefinitely according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Crowder will undergo further testing to reveal the extent of any other damage to his ankle in the coming days. Fantasy managers should stash him on the IR if they have the ability but if not he can be safely cut. The Bills receiving room is becoming a MASH unit with Isaiah McKenzie (concussion) also leaving in Week 4, Jake Kumerow (ankle) inactive in Week 4, and Gabe Davis missing Weeks 2 and 3 with an ankle injury. Stefon Diggs, Davis, and Khalil Shakir (rookie out of Boise State) are the only three Buffalo wide receivers on track to suit up in Week 5 at the moment. Shakir could make for an interesting flier in DFS lineups if McKenzie and Kumerow are unable to suit up. It more likely means double digits each for Diggs and Davis against the Steelers.

Tyler Bass connected on all three of his FG tried in Week 4, including a game-winner as time expired. He also made both of his PAT tries.

Fantasy Impact: Bass rebounded nicely after a missed kick in Week 3 and continues to be one of the better kicker options for fantasy managers. Bass should remain in lineups moving forward, including in Week 5 against the Steelers.

The Bills' defense allowed 20 points Sunday while picking off Lamar Jackson twice, and sacking him twice as well.

Fantasy Impact: The Bills' defense got out of the gates slow but had an excellent second half to propel the unit to a fine fantasy day. The Ravens' offense had been excellent, and the effort the Bills had was the best against the team so far this season. The Bills are the best D/ST and they will be a premier option in Week 5 against the Steelers.

James Cook saw one target but did not have a carry in the Bills' win over the Ravens.

Fantasy Impact: Cook has yet to be heavily involved in the Bills' offense, but the rookie out of Georgia still has time to get things going. The upside for Cook seems to be getting a bit smaller with the increased usage for Devin Singletary, but fantasy managers should exercise caution considering cutting the rookie RB. Cook will have a chance to bounce back against the Steelers in Week 5.

Zack Moss gained six yards on three carries in Week 4 win.

Fantasy Impact: Moss has seen fewer and fewer opportunities recently, as Devin Singletary has emerged as the go-to option in Buffalo. Moss was seeing solid work in the passing game early in the year but did not see a single target in Week 4. If you have space on your bench you can continue to stash Moss, but any hope of him being worth a start seems to be getting slimmer and slimmer.

Dawson Knox saw six targets Sunday, he caught three of them for 40 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Knox has still yet to find the end zone in 2022, but the Ole Miss product has been quietly getting more and more involved in the offense. Knox's claim to fantasy relevance stems from the efficiency of the offense he is a part of. Next week Knox will find himself in a tough matchup against Minkah Fitzpatrick and the Steelers but could be worth a flier at the weak TE position.

Devin Singletary carried the ball 11 times for 49 yards but did lose a fumble. He also caught four passes for 47 yards in the Bills' last-minute win over Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact: Singletary has really come on as of late, distancing himself as the clear-cut RB1 in the Buffalo backfield. His receiving work in the last two weeks has been a promising sign for the FAU product. Up next for Singletary is a promising matchup against the Steelers in a game that could see an excellent game script for Singletary.

Gabe Davis was targeted three times, catching just one for 13 yards on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Davis has struggled since returning from an ankle injury he suffered ahead of Week 2. Wether or not he is still dealing with the lingering effects of that injury or not, he has put together two consecutive disappointing performances. Up next for Davis will be a chance to get right against the struggling Steelers in Week 5.

Stefon Diggs was targeted six times on Sunday, managing to catch four of them for 62 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Diggs has slowed down since his high-octane start to the season, but the all-pro wideout continues to show he has a safe floor despite not finding the end zone. Diggs remains Josh Allen's top target and fantasy managers should not worry too much about the lack of TDs yet. The Bills will take on the Steelers in Week 5, and Diggs belongs firmly in starting lineups moving forward.

Josh Allen completed 19 of his 36 pass attempts for 213 yards, one touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's win over the Ravens. He also added 70 rushing yards and a TD on 11 carries.

Fantasy Impact: Allen has proven time and time again that he is the most reliable fantasy QB in the league, and despite rainy conditions in Baltimore Allen came through for the Bills and fantasy managers alike. The Bills will take on the Steelers in Week 5 and Allen should be considered an obvious start in that, and every, game.

Fantasy Impact: The Bills are already down Jamison Crowder after he was carted off the field with an ankle injury. The Bills’ wide receiver depth will likely be tested for the remainder of their game with Baltimore. We will update you on the status of McKenzie once the team releases additional information.

Xavier Rhodes (hamstring) is unlikely to play against Baltimore Sunday. (Source: Ari Meirov on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rhodes recently signed with the Bills this week, but is unlikely to suit up in Week 4. The Bills' secondary have been decimated by injuries early this season. With the potential explosiveness of the Ravens' offense, the Bills D/ST is a risky play in Week 4.

Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury. (Source: Matt Parrino on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Oliver logged limited practices all of last week before ultimately being ruled out, so the early week practice does not necessarily mean that he is on track for a Week 4 return. Oliver is a key piece of one of the NFL's best defenses, so a return for this weekend's tilt against Baltimore would be welcomed news. Oliver is a DT2/DL3 option for fantasy purposes when healthy but should remain on benches until he is back to his regular snap count.

Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a foot injury. (Source: Matt Parrino on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Poyer missed Week 3 with the foot injury after getting in limited sessions on Wednesday and Friday, so this is still a situation to monitor. Poyer is a DB1 option when healthy, so fantasy managers will be hoping he is active for a plus matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. If Poyer is inactive, the Bills will give another start to Damar Hamlin. Hamlin will be a DB3 option for Week 4 if Poyer cannot go.

Reggie Gilliam caught two passes for 22 yards in the Bills' loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact: Gilliam followed up his Week 2 touchdown with some more work as a receiver. While the fullback-tight end hybrid does not belong on rosters currently, it is worth keeping an eye on his snap counts and targets in the upcoming weeks. In deeper leagues, Gilliam is worth keeping an eye on as a potential bench stash target.

Jake Kumerow (ankle) is questionable to return to the Bills’ game against the Dolphins. (Source: Buffalo Bills PR on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Kumerow took a hit to his leg and had to be helped off the field by the Bills’ training staff. The Bills should provide more details on the injury after the game should Kumerow not return.

Micah Hyde (neck) will be placed on IR Saturday and will miss the remainder of the 2022 season. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hyde is suffering from a herniated disc and the team hopes that he can make a full recovery and return in 2023. The Bills will likely turn to Damar Hamlin to fill the free safety spot heading into Week 3 and now potentially for the remainder of the season. The loss of Hyde is massive for the Bills' defense and will be a hard void to fill.

Jordan Phillips has been ruled out for the Bills Week 3 game against the Dolphins. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Bills are also missing a couple of key pieces in the secondary to go along with Phillips on the defensive line. This looks to be a potential high-scoring game this weekend between the Bills and Dolphins.

DL Shaq Lawson will be inactive for the Thursday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills. (Source: Buffalo Bills on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lawson is beginning his second stint with the Bills, but the pass rush in Buffalo has improved over the offseason. Lawson is taking a backseat among a young pass rush including Ed Oliver and Greg Rousseau. Von Miller should see extra playing time as well. Los Angeles' pass protection is vulnerable due to injury and the retirement of T Andrew Whitworth, so QB Matthew Stafford could be under pressure often.

The Buffalo Bills have listed TE Quintin Morris as an inactive player for Thursday's season-opening game against the Los Angeles Rams. (Source: Buffalo Bills on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Morris' absence will mean that Buffalo will likely give Knox an increase in snaps against the Rams. The trend in Buffalo has been toward Knox, especially after the release of TEs O.J. Howard and Jalen Wydermyer. Los Angeles has been solid in pass coverage in recent years out wide, and the Bills may turn toward Knox for production in what could potentially be a shootout.
