Buffalo Bills

AFC East

Fantasy Impact: Kroft will stay within the AFC East and give Jets QB Sam Darnold a new weapon within the offense alongside WR Corey Davis. The seventh-year tight end out of Rutgers had 12 receptions for 119 yards and three touchdowns across 10 games for the Bills in 2020. Kroft becomes a valuable red-zone target for the Jets, as his 6'6 250-pound frame is difficult to cover in tight spaces. He flashed his upside with the Bengals in 2017, totaling 42 receptions for 404 yards and seven touchdowns. In a new offensive system without the influence of previous Jets head coach Adam Gase, Kroft could become the team's TE1 over the oft-injured Chris Herndon in 2021.

Taiwan Jones and the Bills agreed to terms on a one-year deal, the team announced Thursday. (Source: Team)

Fantasy Impact: Consider Jones solely a depth piece behind Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, as he plays mostly on special teams. Jones totaled four offensive snaps last season, as opposed to 209 (47%) on special teams.

Fantasy Impact: Smith spent six seasons of his career in Buffalo and was mainly used as a blocking tight end. He hauled in four receptions for 35 yards and two touchdowns across 16 games for the Bills in 2020. Smith is expected to be the Falcons TE2 behind starter Hayden Hurst.

Veteran defensive tackle Star Lotulelei is expected to return to the Buffalo Bills in 2021. He opted out of last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (Source: Matthew Fairburn on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Prior to 2020, the fomer first-round pick had missed just two games in his career. He opened his career with five seasons in Carolina before joining Buffalo in 2018. He has posted 177 career tackles and 13.5 sacks. His return should drastically aid the cohesiveness of a Bills run defense that struggled during his absence.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports the Texans reached a two-year contract agreement with Andre Roberts. (Source: Tom Pelissero on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Roberts is primarily deployed as a kick returner and punt returner these days. Pelissero adds the contract can be worth up to $5.95 million. He won't be a fantasy factor in 2020.

Per Matt Parrino, the Bills have re-signed OG Jon Feliciano to a three-year, $17M deal. (Source: Matt Parrino on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Add Feliciano to the list of Buffalo offensive line free agents that have decided to re-sign with the team. The three-year deal is reportedly worth $17M and will ensure continuity along the offensive line for the Bills. Feliciano is 29-years old and played in nine games in 2020 after returning from a torn pectoral.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Bills and LB Matt Milano agreed to terms on a four-year deal worth $44 million. $24 million of the deal is guaranteed. (Source: Ian Rapoport of NFL Network)

Fantasy Impact: After a career year in 2019 and a solid season in 2020 in which Milano posted a career-high in sacks and interceptions, the Bills rewarded the veteran LB with a four-year deal. Milano will turn 27 before the season starts, he was ranked as PFF's 41st LB last year.

Bills DT Vernon Butler restructured his contract with the team. (Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: In other words, he took a pay cut to remain in Buffalo. Butler will once again operate as a rotation player for the Bills' defensive line in 2021.

Fantasy Impact: Brown recorded his best season of his career with Buffalo in 2019, but was limited to nine games in 2020 due to a sprained ankle. The 30-year-old WR hauled in 105 receptions on 167 targets for 1,518 yards and nine touchdowns across 24 games for the Bills. He will look to latch onto another team during the offseason. Buffalo will turn to Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis as it’s top wideouts for 2021.

Per Joe Buscaglia of the Athletic, the Bills are rumored to be interested in bringing a TE in via free agency this offseason. (Source: Joe Buscaglia on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: With Knox entering year-three of his four-year rookie contract, the Bills have been rumored to have interest in potentially adding another TE. The young TE has recorded 52 receptions, 676 yards, and five touchdowns across 27 games in his career.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Bills have signed Micah Hyde to a two-year extension. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Hyde played well for the Bills last season and was rewarded with a two-year extension. He appeared in 15 games and had 48 solo tackles to go along with one interception.

Bills WR Cole Beasley said he played through a broken fibula during the postseason. (Source: Marcel Louis-Jacques on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Beasley was on the injury report with a "knee" injury for most of the playoffs. He suffered it in Week 16 and was apparently more impacted by it during the Wild Card Round and Divisional Round. He hauled in 7-of-9 targets for 88 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, however. Beasley could undergo offseason surgery at some point, depending on how bad the break is.

The Buffalo Bills D/ST gave up 38 points and had one sack in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: The Bills D/ST got healthy down the stretch and proved to be the formidable opponent experts thought they would be heading into 2020. Unfortunately, they ran into the buzz saw that is the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills D/ST finished as a top-12 scoring defense in fantasy and there is no reason to believe they can't do it again in 2021.

Bills K Tyler Bass connected on all four of his field-goals and missed an extra-point attempt in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: As long as Bass remains the kicker for the Bills, he'll be fantasy gold. Look for him to be one of the first kickers off the board in 2021 drafts.

Bills RB T.J. Yeldon rushed three times for 15 yards and had four receptions for 41 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Yeldon had a solid game but doesn't seem to have a long-term role in Buffalo. With Devin Singletary back and Zack Moss healthy, Yeldon remains buried on the depth chart, and barring injury won't be fantasy-relevant in 2021.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie caught one pass for a six-yard touchdown in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: McKenzie remains the 6th option for QB Josh Allen and at this time and is not currently on the fantasy radar.

Category: Game Recaps


Bills RB Devin Singletary rushed six times for 17 yards and added two receptions for nine yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Singletary continued to be underwhelming in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Neither Singletary nor rookie Zack Moss was able to take over this backfield when given the opportunity in 2020, and it wouldn't be a huge surprise if more competition is brought in for the 2021 season. Singletary may be nothing more than a low-end FLEX option moving forward.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs caught 6-of-11 targets for 77 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Diggs had a quiet end to what was a spectacular 2020 season. Josh Allen's favorite target finished the season with 147 receptions, over 1,500 yards, and 10 touchdowns (including post-season). The amount of targets Diggs saw this season puts him in Davante Adams territory and he should be one of the first WRs off the board in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Buffalo QB Josh Allen was 28/48 for 287 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception and added seven rushes for 88 yards in Sunday's Championship round loss to the Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact: Allen played admirably on Sunday but ultimately came up short to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. His 2020 campaign was beyond impressive as the third-year QB finished with 5,361 passing yards, 42 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions and added 566 yards and nine TDs on the ground (including post-season). He'll likely be one of the first five QBs off the board in 2021 drafts.

Fantasy Impact: Davis didn't practice much during the week so his snaps could be limited tonight. Still, expect to see him out there whenever Buffalo uses four-wide sets on offense.
