Buffalo Bills

AFC East

The Buffalo Bills have traded wide receiver Zay Jones to the Oakland Raiders for a 2021 fifth-round draft pick, according to a report from NFL insider Chris Mortensen. (Source: Chris Mortensen on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Through five games this season, Jones has just seven receptions for 69 yards. He will join a wide receiver depth chart in Oakland that features the injured Tyrell Williams, Hunter Renfrow, Keelan Doss, Trevor Davis, and J.J. Nelson.

The Buffalo Bills allowed seven points and 252 yards of offense in their Week 5 win over the Titans. The defense racked up five sacks but no turnovers in the game.

Fantasy Impact: The Bills are off in Week 6, but get to face the Dolphins in Week 7. Depending on league size and what options are available, they could potentially be added during the bye week to save for Week 7 to save some FAAB or a waiver claim. They remain a high-end DST unit and their next matchup is as good as it gets.

Steven Hauschka converted both of his extra points in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Hauschka has been spotty through parts of 2019, and the Bills are not reliably providing scoring opportunities -- this game being the worst display through five weeks. Hauschka should be dropped heading into the bye if owned, because kickers are highly replaceable.

Dawson Knox caught two of his five targets for 12 yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Better days are ahead for Knox, who has become more involved as a receiver of late. He's still likely to be volatile, as the Bills' targets are not consolidated to a few players, and he's a rookie, of course. Knox is a nice upside play, but will be a high-variance player for the remainder of 2019 most likely. He's off in Week 6 but gets the Dolphins in Week 7 if owners are desperate.

Lee Smith caught his only target for an eight-yard touchdown in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Smith is not an active member of the passing game and still only saw one target -- he's not a viable fantasy football asset unless he becomes more of a pass-catcher and less of a blocker.

Isaiah McKenzie caught both of his targets for 52 yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: There is nothing to see here -- McKenzie is a gadget player who won't play more than a handful of offensive snaps in most weeks. Don't bother with a waiver claim on him unless his role changes.

Cole Beasley caught all three of his targets for 21 yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: This game had to come at some point. Beasley has operated farther from the line of scrimmage than in some previous years, but still specializes in the short routes. He's a decent floor play in PPR formats with a ceiling dependent on huge target volume. Better days are ahead after the Week 6 bye, but Beasley is far from an auto-start. Week 7 against the Dolphins is a nice matchup, though, and Beasley can be considered in PPR formats.

John Brown caught all five of his targets for 75 yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Brown remains the top target for fantasy purposes, and provided another solid outing in fantasy terms. Brown still carries some volatility risk due to the nature of his quarterback, but he's a high-upside option to use at WR3/Flex (not during the Week 6 bye, of course). The Bills get to face the hapless Dolphins in Week 7, and Brown could smash.

Duke Williams caught all four of his targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Don't rush out to the waiver wire for Williams, who hasn't been involved in the passing offense until this week. Wait to see it again and understand that the fantasy points were largely created by the touchdown. Until Williams sees more targets and yardage, he's not worth an add.

T.J. Yeldon rushed twice for 15 yards and caught four of his five targets for 13 yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Yeldon remains unusable in fantasy football due to the lack of touches he is seeing. After the Week 6 bye, the outlook will continue to be bleak, as rookie Devin Singletary should be on the comeback trail. Yeldon can be dropped heading into the bye if needed.

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 60 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Gore remained clearly the lead back with rookie Devin Singletary still sidelined. He continued carrying the ball with decent success but saw limited receiving work. Without a touchdown, his fantasy line is underwhelming, which should come as no surprise. After the Week 6 bye, Gore will be in a nice spot in Week 7 against the Dolphins, with or without Singletary back in the fold.

Josh Allen completed 23-of-32 pass attempts for 219 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans. Allen rushed 10 times for 27 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Allen showed what is becoming his M.O. in fantasy terms -- an underwhelming day passing the ball but some rushing yards to bolster his fantasy line and an overall respectable line for fantasy purposes. Allen's completion rate in this game was better than normal, but his passing has still been spotty in the early parts of 2019. The Bills are off in Week 6 but Allen will be in a prime spot for streaming in Week 7 against the Dolphins.

Tremaine Edmunds had an unimpressive afternoon fantasy-wise, finishing with only two solo tackles, three assisted tackles, and a pass defended in a 14-7 victory over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: The second-year LB has yet to put together a truly impressive stat line, but it's also important to remember he still only 21 years old. Perhaps Edmunds will have a breakout game next week against Dolphins.

Category: Game Recaps


Jordan Phillips had himself quite a day, recording three tackles, three sacks, three TFLs, and three QB hits in a 14-7 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Phillips feasted on the Titans OL in this low scoring affair, and his play prevented Marcus Mariota and the Titans offense from heating up. The Bills defense will have another opportunity to rack up the sacks against Miami next week.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners in a pinch at the wide receiver spot could look to Andre Roberts or Zay Jones with Foster sitting. It would be best to look elsewhere for WR talent in Week 5.

Fantasy Impact: With the bye coming up for Week 6, The Bills are electing to play it safe with Singletary and sit him for Sunday's Week 5 contest against the Titans. Frank Gore will once again be the lead the back for the Bills Week 5.

Tyler Kroft (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Titans. (Source: Buffalo Bills PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kroft's continued absence comes as little surprise after he was unable to practice in any capacity Wednesday through Friday. With the bye week coming up Week 6, he could potentially make his season debut October 20th versus Miami.

Jordan Poyer with a busy day

Sun, Sep 22nd 4:47pm EDT
By Kaiyo Funaki

Jordan Poyer led the Bills in tackles against the Cincinnati Bengals, as he racked up 11 solo tackles, one assisted tackle, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery.

Fantasy Impact: Poyer made quite the impact on Sunday, as no other defender had more than five total tackles. Poyer and the Bills look to continue their undefeated season against the Patriots next week.

Tommy Sweeney caught both of his targets for 35 yards in the Bills' season opener, a dramatic win over the Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Sweeney does not figure to be a reliable part of this passing attack and should not be on the fantasy radar at this point.

LeSean McCoy has agreed to a one-year, $4 million dollar deal that includes $3 million guaranteed from the Chiefs. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: McCoy will reunite with Andy Reid and play a meaningful role in the Chiefs rushing attack. There may have been better landing spots that offered more of an opportunity, but he will most likely be part of a committee with Damian Williams. His deal of $3 million guaranteed ensures McCoy a roster spot. McCoy finished 2018 with 514 rushing yards on 3.2 YPC with three touchdowns in 14 games.
