The Bills offense features two of the NFL’s best talents but has been inconsistent. After deciding to retain Tyrod Taylor this offseason, what do the Bills offer fantasy owners this season?
LeSean McCoy had an amazing season in 2016. Even with Mike Gillislee stealing his touchdowns, McCoy found the endzone 14 times. Expect another top 10 finish for McCoy as a clear-cut starter with upside.
Sammy Watkins is one of the most talented receivers in the NFL. His injury history has made him a major risk in fantasy football. In the games he plays in, Watkins is heavily targeted and valuable.
Drafting him as your WR2 offers real value and upside. Being drafted in the middle of round three, Watkins is in the mix with Demaryius Thomas, Allen Robinson and Alshon Jeffrey. All talented receivers but players that give you pause about drafting.
SLEEPER: Zay Jones
Zay Jones had an eye-popping 158 catches for 1,746 yards in his senior season at ECU. In Buffalo, Jones will be the #2 target next to Sammy Watkins. With Watkins injury history, Jones could become the top target in the Bills offense by mid season. Look for him to potentially lead the Bills in receptions and is a darkhorse Offensive ROY candidate.
BUST: Charles Clay
Charles Clay has the skills and the targets to produce fantasy value. The issue is he hasn’t produced the results to be someone you can trust. With the addition of Jones, Corey Brown and Andre Holmes, the Bills new look offense may not feature as many targets for Clay.
Jonathan Williams is worth a late round pick to handcuff LeSean McCoy. Mike Gillislee had a role behind McCoy so Williams should too.
