  • Bills, Chiefs Had "Substantive Talks" About Trading for DeAndre Hopkins

    According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, only the Bills and Cardinals had "substantive" talks with the Cardinals about trading for DeAndre Hopkins. Of course, nobody made a move, and Arizona released him on Friday. Since the multi-time Pro Bowler became a free agent, several teams have emerged as potential suitors. However, other clubs like the Browns appear uninterested, meaning a reunion between Hopkins and Deshaun Watson probably won't happen. The Chiefs have since expressed their faith in Kadarius Toney to become the top wideout on the depth chart, while the Bills may not have the cash to make a move, considering Hopkins could command more than the $15 million Odell Beckham Jr. received from Baltimore. Nonetheless, there will be plenty of updates and speculation moving forward. But it will be hard to tell how Hopkins will look from a fantasy standpoint until he officially inks a new deal

  • Bills "Lurking" As A Favorite To Land Deandre Hopkins

    According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Bills are considered one of the favorites to land free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins. Fowler reports Buffalo has "been lurking," although the organization would need to get "creative," considering its limited cap space. Hopkins is coming off a down season, finishing the 2022-23 campaign with 64 catches for 717 yards and three touchdowns. However, after the Cardinals failed to find a trade for the multi-time Pro Bowler, he was released on Friday. Nonetheless, there will be numerous updates on the veteran's potential plans, with Fowler also mentioning the Chiefs, Jets, Cowboys, and Saints as other teams in the running to acquire his services. As a result, Hopkins' fantasy outlook will remain a mystery until he signs with a new club. Of course, if he lands in Buffalo, it would certainly improve Josh Allen's fantasy stock.

  • Josh Allen More Focused This Offseason

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott stated that quarterback Josh Allen is "more focused" this offseason. "I've seen a different Josh," commented McDermott. "He's got a new sense of focus, I would say, and determination, which is good." The signal-caller finished the 2022-23 campaign by throwing for 4,283 yards, 35 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions. He added 762 yards off 124 carries while finding the end zone seven times on the run. Allen ended the 2020 season by connecting on 69.2% of his passing attempts. However, he completed just 63.3% of his tosses in the last two seasons. With the 2018 No. 7 overall pick potentially running less this season, he'll need to be more accurate, or else fantasy managers may suffer greatly.

  • Stefon Diggs Not In Attendance At OTAs

    Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that wide receiver Stefon Diggs is not in attendance for voluntary organized team activities this week at this point. Diggs also didn't report for voluntary team workouts last month, and there remains some concern that the 29-year-old star wideout isn't happy with his situation. He showed his frustration during the team's playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last season, but he also recently signed a four-year contract extension through 2027. It remains to be seen if the Bills would actually consider trading Diggs, but for now, fantasy managers must assume he'll remain in Buffalo in 2023. When healthy, Diggs is one of the best wideouts in the game in one of the best offenses in the NFL, so he should be viewed as a top-five fantasy wideout.

  • Dalton Kincaid Takes Part In Rookie Minicamp

    Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid (back) didn't do any football workouts or the NFL scouting combine testing in the lead-up to the draft due to the recovery process from a back injury that didn't require surgery, but he took part in Buffalo's rookie minicamp over the weekend. "I feel good," said the first-round draft pick. "Definitely rusty in terms of not being able to do as much as I wanted to the last couple months. But I felt really good out there." The 6-foot-4, 246-pounder has high expectations after being the first tight end taken in an elite class for the position. He has elite hands and is expected to bring a boost to the Bills' passing attack immediately. Rookie tight ends typically don't produce immediately in fantasy, but Kincaid should have a pretty high ceiling sooner than later.

  • Travin Howard Inks Deal With Bills

    Free-agent linebacker Travin Howard agreed to a one-year deal with Buffalo. The 2018 seventh-round pick has appeared in 29 games during his career, totaling 44 tackles and one interception. However, he's struggled to stay healthy over the years and played in just one game in 2022. The Bills want to add depth to the defense, a unit plagued by numerous injuries last season. Yet, Howard's signing with a new team doesn't mean anything for IDP managers.

  • Von Miller Could Miss Start Of Regular Season

    Buffalo Bills edge rusher Von Miller's (knee) ACL tear in late November of last year could put him in jeopardy of missing the start of the 2023 regular season, regardless of how optimistic he might appear to be about it. Considering Miller's age (34) and how important he is to the team's playoff push, so the Bills will certainly be careful with him in the lead-up to the season. The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia suggests that the Bills could save Miller from himself by putting him on the Physically Unable to Perform list to begin the year, which would cause him to miss at least the first four games. Miller was off to a great start in Buffalo last year before his injury, racking up eight sacks in 11 games. However, with the potential for missed time early on, he'll be a much more risky selection in IDP drafts.

  • Khalil Shakir, Deonte Harty To Compete For Slot Role

    Buffalo Bills wide receivers Khalil Shakir and Deonte Harty will compete to be the starting slot receiver in a more traditional 11-personnel look this summer at training camp. However, whoever wins the job could concede a lot of snaps to first-round tight end Dalton Kincaid, who is expected to be lined up a lot as a receiver in his rookie year. Shakir, Harty and Trent Sherfield can also play outside in the Stefon Diggs role if needed, and Sherfield and rookie Justin Shorter can both fill in for Davis if he were to miss any time. There is opportunity for Shakir and Harty to carve out a nice role for themselves in this offense, but it's unlikely to be a prominent fantasy one if Kincaid is as heavily involved as everyone expects him to be.

  • Damien Harris, Latavius Murray Could Be In Competition

    The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia suggests that Buffalo Bills running backs Damien Harris and Latavius Murray could be in a competition to see who the complementary rusher behind James Cook will be in 2023. Both Harris ($1.4 million) and Murray ($802,500) received substantial guaranteed money from the Bills. Unless he suddenly takes to the offense this summer in training camp, Nyheim Hines will likely be a kickoff and punt returner on special teams with some offensive snaps sprinkled in. Harris has had a tough time staying healthy in his career, so Murray could carve out a fantasy relevant role as a touchdown-dependent power back in Buffalo if Harris misses more time due to injury. If everyone is healthy, Cook will be the only startable RB for the Bills in fantasy lineups.

  • Kyle Allen Likely To Win Backup Job In Buffalo

    The Buffalo Bills' backup quarterback job will be more of a competition in 2023 than it was this past year between Kyle Allen and Matt Barkley. Allen is the likeliest to win the job behind Josh Allen with the Bills successfully getting Barkley to the practice squad in past years. Kyle Allen, 27, has made 19 career starts in the NFL in his five seasons, with two coming last year for the Houston Texans. In 23 career games with the Panthers, Commanders and Texans, he has completed 62.6 percent of his passes for 4,734 yards, 26 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. Even if Kyle Allen is forced into starting duties at some point in 2023, he won't be anything more than a low-end QB2 play in superflex leagues.

  • Dalton Kincaid Expected To Line Up More As Receiver

    The Buffalo Bills traded up two spots late in the first round of this year's NFL draft to take tight end Dalton Kincaid out of Utah. The Bills were looking for another offensive playmaker to give quarterback Josh Allen some help. Allen finished with his lowest completion percentage on passes thrown between the hashes since 2019 (68.5%). Buffalo signed tight end Dawson Knox to a four-year extension last year, but the team plans to use the two TEs in different roles, with Kincaid lining up more like a wide receiver, including a big slot receiver. The 23-year-old lined up all over the formation in college. It's a great landing spot fantasy-wise for Kincaid long term, but fantasy managers still may want to temper expectations in his rookie season given Knox's presence. Kincaid's presence is bad news for slot wideout Khalil Shakir.

  • O'Cyrus Torrence Could Start Immediately

    The Buffalo Bills took offensive guard O'Cyrus Torrence with a premium pick in this year's draft at No. 59 overall, and although they likely won't commit to it publicly, with his type of talent and fit in the zone-blocking scheme they plan to use more in 2023, they're likely hoping Torrence can win a starting job at right guard as a rookie. He is an impressive player who could massively outplay his draft position if the Bills handle him correctly. At 6-foot-5 and 330 pounds, the 23-year-old guard definitely brings more bulk to Buffalo's O-line. Torrence isn't a freak athlete, but he wins with a mean streak and physicality and should improve the team's pass-blocking in his first NFL season.

  • Bills Sign Poona Ford To One-Year Deal

    The Buffalo Bills signed former Seattle Seahawks nose tackle Poona Ford to an undisclosed one-year deal on Tuesday, according to sources. Ford was one of the top free agents available, and he ends up turning down more money elsewhere to try and win a Super Bowl ring in Buffalo. It's a huge post-draft addition for the Bills' defensive line. The 27-year-old former undrafted free-agent defensive tackle played his first five NFL seasons in Seattle, amassing 181 tackles (104 solo), 7.5 sacks, 28 tackles for loss, 27 QB hits, four passes defensed, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 76 games (64 starts). He hasn't missed a game since 2019 and will be a rotational option on the interior of Buffalo's defensive line in 2023.
