  • Gabriel Davis Was Bills' Best Pass-Catcher In Scrimmage

    Buffalo Bills starting wide receiver Gabriel Davis was the "best pass catcher on the field" during the team's scrimmage on Friday evening, writes Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic. Davis ran a variety of routes and got open more often than not, catching five of six targets for 76 yards and a touchdown. The lone incompletion thrown his way was a 25-yard pass at the left side of the end zone. Davis caught the ball but only got one foot down in the process. The 24-year-old's success on Friday has to please fantasy managers after Davis was one of the most hyped-up players this offseason. His ADP has risen from 86 in February to 51 today. He has totaled 70 catches, 1,148 yards, and 13 touchdowns through two pro seasons but is expected to see an increase in usage now that he has risen to No. 2 on the depth chart (behind Stefon Diggs).

  • Zack Moss Standing Out In Short-Yardage Situations

    Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss has shown promise in short-yardage situations during training camp. Rookie James Cook has thrived as a pass-catcher. Yet, Moss has reportedly displayed "good vision and physicality," so there is a chance he may get some touches at the goal line this season. Nonetheless, although the 24-year-old should have some decent showings in 2022-23, his place on the depth chart behind Cook and Devin Singletary likely won't allow him to be a consistent fantasy producer. However, Moss does have insurance policy upside and will be a streaming option if Singletary or Cook misses time this year.

  • James Cook Looking Good In Camp

    Buffalo Bills running back James Cook has "opened some eyes here a little bit in the run and pass game," stated head coach Sean McDermott. The former Georgia Bulldog has undoubtedly impressed since being taken in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, especially as a pass-catcher. Although Devin Singletary will likely get a bulk of the snaps out of the backfield this season, there may be room for Cook to get involved on the fantasy end, especially in PPR formats. While the 22-year-old probably won't be an impactful fantasy producer on a week-to-week basis this year, he unquestionably has more insurance policy appeal than Zack Moss and Duke Johnson.

  • Bills Bullish On Khalil Shakir

    The Buffalo Bills seem bullish on rookie fifth-round wide receiver Khalil Shakir's potential this year despite his status as a late-round draft pick. Shakir had six good practices in a row at training camp before a temporary lapse with multiple drops on Monday. However, the rookie bounced back in practice on Tuesday, showing his usual smooth route-running and footwork, and he played well in one-on-one work. The 22-year-old appears to be a lock to make the roster out of training camp and the preseason, but he's unlikely to be fantasy relevant in single-year leagues with Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie and veteran Jamison Crowder ahead of him on the depth chart. The Bills will likely continue to develop Shakir in a depth role in 2022.

  • Marquez Stevenson To Miss Several Weeks

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that wide receiver Marquez Stevenson (foot) will miss several weeks after getting injured in training camp practice on Tuesday. It's another setback for Stevenson, who missed the early part of last season with an injury before returning and getting benched down the stretch. He was a bubble player this summer as it was, so this injury could dramatically alter his chances of making the team. Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, Isaiah McKenzie, Jamison Crowder and rookie Khalil Shakir appear to be locks to make the roster, and special teams contributor Jake Kumerow looks like a strong bet to make the team as well. Stevenson didn't have a single target in his rookie season.

  • Jamison Crowder Returns To Team Drills

    Buffalo Bills veteran wide receiver Jamison Crowder made a return to team drills on Tuesday at training camp after a five-practice absence due to general soreness. However, he got most his work with the Case Keenum-led offense rather than working with quarterback Josh Allen. Isaiah McKenzie has continued to build chemistry with Allen and appears to have the current lead over Crowder for the starting slot job. But the competition isn't over by any means, and Crowder easily won snaps against the cornerbacks he faced Tuesday. He remains a great target on underneath routes, which should give the Bills dependable depth, at the very least. But McKenzie gives the Bills the potential for more explosive plays and more yards after the catch, making him the better late-round dart throw in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Isaiah McKenzie Continues To Stand Out

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie has been one of the standouts of the team's training camp to this point. He's been with the team since 2018 and has slowly worked himself into more significant roles over the years. "Job's up for grabs," McKenzie said of the slot receiver role. "Jamison Crowder came in, and he's had a great career. He came in to compete with me, and I came back to compete with him. I know it wasn't going to be easy, and I know it's not easy now." McKenzie has done everything he can to lead the competition with Crowder missing five of the first eight practices. The 27-year-old has a good chance to be one of quarterback Josh Allen's trusted aerial targets, although he may not actually be worth a draft pick in fantasy until it's official that he's won the job over Crowder.

  • Jordan Poyer To Miss A Few Weeks

    Buffalo Bills All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer (elbow) suffered a hyperextended elbow in training camp practice on Tuesday and will miss what one source described as "a few weeks." Poyer is expected to return for the start of the regular season. It's not great news for one of the standouts of Buffalo's defense, but the good news is the 31-year-old may not have to miss any regular season games. It wouldn't be a surprise if Poyer gets off to a slow start early in the season as he works his way back from injury. In 16 regular season games in 2021, he had 93 tackles (66 solo), eight tackles for loss, three QB hits, three sacks, five interceptions and nine passes defensed to finish as a top-15 fantasy defensive back in IDP leagues.

  • Jordan Poyer Suffers Elbow Injury

    Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer (elbow) left the field at training camp practice on Tuesday with an elbow injury that will require an MRI exam. We'll have more information once the results of Poyer's MRI exam become available. Fellow safety Micah Hyde (hip) is also injured in camp, and the 31-year-old Poyer is perhaps even more important to the Bills secondary. He was named a first-team All-Pro in 2021, when he had 93 tackles (66 solo), eight tackles for loss, three QB hits, three sacks, a career-high-tying five interceptions and nine passes defensed in 16 regular season games. Hyde's injury doesn't appear to be very serious, but losing Poyer for an extended period of time would be bad news. Poyer finished last year as the No. 13 defensive back in IDP formats.

  • Zack Moss Trending Towards Having A Role

    Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary is in line to get a significant portion of the carries this year, but rookie James Cook and 2020 third-rounder Zack Moss are both trending toward having roles in the offense in 2022. The breakdown of RB touches will be even more difficult to predict this year under new offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey. Singletary should be expected to lead the group this year, and Cook is likely to contribute as both a rusher and receiver. Moss has been looking good early in training camp, and an ankle injury after his rookie season may have led to his disappointing 2021 campaign. Despite the positive reports out of camp for the 24-year-old, he's still currently third on the RB depth chart behind Singletary and Moss and should be avoided in 12-team leagues.

  • Micah Hyde Suffers Hip Injury

    Buffalo Bills safety Micah Hyde (hip, glute) suffered an injury in Friday's training camp practice, according to the team. Hyde is still being evaluated, but the injury is considered relatively minor. Head coach Sean McDermott labeled Hyde day-to-day on Saturday, so hopefully he won't be out of practice for too long. The 31-year-old was carted to the locker room on Friday, but thankfully it didn't turn out to be too serious. This early in training camp, the Bills will take it easy on Hyde, who is an important part of their secondary. In 17 regular season starts in 2021, he had 74 tackles (53 solo), four tackles for loss, a career-high-tying five interceptions (one for a touchdown), 10 passes defensed, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries and one sack.

  • Jamison Crowder Listed As Day-To-Day

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Jamison Crowder (back) is currently sidelined due to soreness in his back, according to head coach Sean McDermott. It's not exactly known the full extent of the injury, but McDermott has used soreness as a reason for multiple players who are sitting out. That being said, fantasy managers shouldn't be too worried about Crowder missing some time. Although, it does hurt in his position battle with Isaiah McKenzie. The two of them are expected to compete for WR3 duties in Buffalo. At this point, there doesn't appear to be a favorite, but McKenzie will continue to gain momentum the longer Crowder is sidelined.

  • Isaiah McKenzie Has Taken A Step Forward

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie seems to have taken a step forward, and he has a big opportunity this year with veteran slot man Cole Beasley now gone. McKenzie is contending with Jamison Crowder for the starting slot job, and he has continued his improvement early in training camp. With Crowder out the last three practices with "general soreness," it has allowed McKenzie to maximize his repetitions with quarterback Josh Allen. McKenzie's route-running has taken a step up, as has his savvy to find soft spots in the defense. The 27-year-old has plenty of speed to spare, but his deceptiveness could allow him to take the next step. He'll need to continue to stand out when the pads go on this weekend, but if Crowder keeps missing practice and McKenzie keeps playing well, McKenzie could win the slot job rather quickly.

  • Jamison Crowder Dealing With Soreness

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Jake Kumerow will miss practice on Tuesday with "soreness" and "tightness" and will be listed as day-to-day at training camp. It's not what you want to see from a veteran wideout early in training camp, but it's also probably nothing to worry about yet. The veteran slot man is coming off an underwhelming season in 2021 with the New York Jets, catching 51 passes for 447 yards and only two touchdowns in 12 games. However, if healthy, Crowder is the favorite to win slot duties in Buffalo over Isaiah McKenzie. The 29-year-old might not have as much after-the-catch ability as McKenzie, but he could be a reliable third-down weapon for quarterback Josh Allen, much like Cole Beasley was.

  • Sean McDermott Has Total Confidence In Gabriel Davis

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis has earned "total confidence" from his head coach Sean McDermott as the team opened up training camp on Monday. "From Day 1, he's made plays. He worked, he worked, he worked. When he was given his shot he made the most of it." Davis figures to slot in as the Bills' second option in the passing game now that Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley are no longer on the team, but McDermott mentioned that the 23-year-old still has to "earn it." After Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs, Davis would be the third-most valuable piece in this high-powered Buffalo passing attack should he officially earn that No. 2 role. Still, he figures to be best valued as a WR3 for fantasy managers, but there is obviously a ton of upside in drafting the potential breakout candidate.

  • Tre'Davious White Starts Camp On PUP List

    Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White (knee), offensive guard Ike Boettger (Achilles) and defensive tackle Eli Ankou (calf) have started training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list and were unable to practice on Sunday, according to head coach Sean McDermott. White remains on schedule in his rehab from a torn ACL that he suffered last Thanksgiving. The 27-year-old hasn't taken part in any offseason practices, but there remains hope that he'll be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. The two-time Pro Bowler played in only 11 games in 2021, recording 41 tackles (27 solo), half a sack, one interception, six passes defensed and one fumble recovery.

  • Bills Sign Jordan Simmons To One-Year Contract

    The Buffalo Bills have signed offensive guard Jordan Simmons to a one-year contract. This comes after head coach Sean McDermott announced that offensive guard Rodger Saffold was added to the non-football injury list to open up training camp. The 6-foot-4, 339-pound Simmons played in five games with the Las Vegas Raiders during the 2021 season, while playing in 20 games with the Seattle Seahawks from 2018 to 2020.

  • Isaiah McKenzie Getting First-Team Reps

    Buffalo Bills wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie opened Bills training camp by getting "virtually all the first-team reps" as the team's slot receiver, according to Greg Tompsett. McKenzie will be battling with Jamison Crowder for slot duties, but it seems like a good sign the 27-year-old is getting the first crack in training camp. McKenzie saw just 26 targets during the 2021 season, which turned into 20 receptions for 178 yards and one touchdown while adding nine carries for 47 yards and a score. Even if he does earn the role of starting slot wide receiver heading into Week 1, the speedster will be competing with Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis, and Dawson Knox for targets. Still, Crowder has shown he can be a capable slot receiver so he shouldn't be ignored just yet. As of now, McKenzie is a late-round dart throw in fantasy drafts.

  • Jordan Poyer Will Continue Practicing

    Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer arrived for training camp, with Sean McDermott informing reporters he will practice. The 31-year-old is looking for a new contract, although both sides are seemingly on good terms. Poyer finished last season with 93 total tackles (66 solo), three sacks, and tied for a career-high five interceptions. With Tre'Davious White (knee) uncertain to be active for Week 1, the Bills have a better chance of remaining a top-five fantasy defense with Poyer on the field, so hopefully, things will remain cordial while negotiations continue.

  • Tre'Davious White Placed On PUP List

    Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White (knee) will begin training camp on the PUP list. The 27-year-old tore his ACL during the Thanksgiving meeting with the New Orleans Saints, requiring surgery, and missed the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign. Fortunately, head coach Sean McDermott informed reporters White is "on schedule," although he declined to specify if the veteran will be ready for Week 1. The former LSU Tiger has been an imposing presence for Buffalo since entering the league in 2017, totaling 279 tackles (216 solo), 60 passes defensed, 16 interceptions, five forced fumbles, and three sacks. White was also instrumental in helping the Bills be a top-five fantasy defensive unit last year, so managers are certainly hoping to see him on the field when the regular season begins in September.
