The leading receiver for the Bills isn’t Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin, or even Robert Woods. It’s the tight end, Charles Clay. Clay is coming off a tremendous week 4 performance where he reeled in 9 catches for over 100 yards on 13 targets. On the heels of a great showing last week, he is probable heading into week 5 against the Titans as he nurses a calf injury.
Clay came over from Miami in the offseason and has had a huge impact on the Bills passing game, serving as Tyrod Taylor’s security blanket. He leads the team in targets, receptions, receiving yards, and is the only player with more than one touchdown. He has especially benefitted from Sammy Watkins missing some games.
His status for week 5 has been uncertain throughout the week, but heading into Sunday it looks like Charles Clay is set to suit up.
Charles Clay has been among the best tight ends in the league, especially these past couple of weeks. In the past 3 games he has over 200 receiving yards and 2 TDs which has brought him into the top 5 among TEs. His targets have increased each week this season, and he has established himself as the most reliable option in Buffalo’s passing game. A great fantasy option as well.
If for some odd reason he is unable to go in week 5, that boosts the stock of spot starter at RB, Anthony Dixon. With Watkins likely out again this week, that leaves Percy Harvin and Robert Woods as the main source of receiving yards. With thin depth in the receiving corps, plus Clay unable to go, that boosts the stock of Anthony Dixon even more, a big sleeper in week 5.
