Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley is unlikely to be released after recording career highs with 82 receptions and 967 receiving yards in 2020, although he has threatened to retire because of the NFL's COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated individuals. However, the Buffalo News' Jay Skurski speculates that, although unlikely, the Bills could remove 'the potential distraction themselves' and release Beasley. Skurski also notes that cutting Beasley would save $5.341 million against the 2021 cap.
Huddle Up: It's important to note Skurski emphasizes Beasley is only a "surprise cut candidate" and not a likely one. Nevertheless, Buffalo has quality depth at receiver and would be able to handle the loss of an 80-catch receiver like him better than most teams. In such a scenario, Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie would likely take the bulk of his snaps in the slot. Gabriel Davis would also become a much more attractive fantasy WR4 option as well.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen could become the first player to eclipse $100 million fully guaranteed in his next contract, in the opinion of former agent Joel Corry.
Huddle Up: Allen has become a dual threat worthy of top-three consideration at the position in fantasy. This will be the first year that you can't get him at a discount, though. So risk enters the picture.

Buffalo Bills RB Devin Singletary is 'going to be way faster' this season, according to his personal trainer Nick Hicks. 'Speed was the number one thing that he wanted to work on,' said Hicks. 'He's very quick, extremely agile, but speed was the main reason why he reached out to us to come train with us.'
Huddle Up: With Josh Allen and Zack Moss likely handling most of the carries near the goal line, Singletary will need some long runs if he is going to make many trips to the end zone. Even if he is more explosive, he looks like a RB3, at best, with Allen and the passing attack taking center stage in Buffalo.

Buffalo Bills WR Isaiah Hodgins (shoulder) shed the red, non-contact jersey before the end of OTAs and stood out. He received praise from head coach Sean McDermott and QB Josh Allen.
Huddle Up: Hodgins has a way to go up the depth chart, but he stood out last training camp before he was lost for the season. He'll be one to watch in training camp and is worth a speculative final-round flyer.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley said Saturday, June 19, he may consider retirement over his disagreement with the league's continuing COVID-19 protocols for unvaccinated players, such as himself.
Huddle Up: Beasley finished second on the team with 107 targets, 82 receptions and 967 receiving yards last season -- all career highs -- and finished 27th among wide receivers with 202.7 PPR points. Things have flared up recently over the vaccination issue, and we'd expect cooler heads to prevail as it's hard to imagine Beasley walking away from the Bills' near-ideal situation right now. Still, the uncertainty with Beasley must be baked in if you're drafting any time soon.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (leg) is participating in practices during minicamp this week. He played with a broken bone in his leg during the playoffs.
Huddle Up: Beasley has been a reliable receiver for the Bills over the last few seasons and will continue to work in the slot in 2021. He can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for fantasy players this upcoming season.
Posted 6/15/2021 9:25 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills RB Zack Moss (ankle) likely will be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Sean McDermott. McDermott said Moss has done well this offseason even though he has not been able to take part in drills.
Huddle Up: Moss shared playing time with Devin Singletary last season and should continue to have a notable role on offense for the Bills in 2021. Fantasy players can consider him at least a No. 4 back in leagues.
Posted 6/01/2021 10:03 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders is at the team facility for organized team activities Tuesday, June 1.
Huddle Up: Sanders will compete for the Bills' third or fourth receiver role this offseason and isn't likely to warrant consideration in fantasy drafts. He could be a midseason waiver wire option if WR Stefon Diggs were to miss time.
Posted 5/08/2021 3:02 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs mentioned that he played through a torn oblique muscle during the 2020 postseason in a post on Twitter Thursday, May 6.
Huddle Up: Despite the injury, Diggs had 20 receptions for 311 yards and a pair of touchdowns in three playoff games, while being on the field for at least 84 percent of the offensive snaps in each contest. Fantasy owners should consider Diggs to be an elite WR1 option entering the 2021 campaign, after he caught a career-high 127 passes for 1,535 yards during the regular season in his first year with Buffalo.
Posted 5/03/2021 3:32 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen's fifth-year option for 2022 was exercised Monday, May 3.
Huddle Up: Allen developed into a fantasy stud last season and will remain in the top four or five QBs in drafts.
Posted 4/08/2021 9:10 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen said he would be willing to sign a contract extension this offseason and plans to be involved when the two sides are negotiating.
Huddle Up: Allen had a breakout 2020 season and will have most of his pass catchers back next season. His running ability increases his fantasy value, and he should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/25/2021 4:56 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen is entering the fourth season of his rookie contract, and the two sides are formulating an extension. 'It helps you for your planning the sooner you can get that contract done,' Bills general manager Brandon Beane said. 'Again, I hope that we can get him done, if not this year, next year. You don't want to get into the franchise (tag) and all that stuff. It's a tool that you use if you have to to keep a great player, but at the end of the day, we want Josh here for the long term. We want him to be happy, and obviously, we want it to be a deal where we can still put talented players around him because Josh is a competitor. He's not wired for us just to pay him, then not be able to put stuff around him. So we'll try and find that deal that works for him and works for us.'
Huddle Up: There no reason -- with all the other moves the Bills have made of late -- for a deal not to get done this offseason and avoid the fifth-year option and potentially the franchise tag with Allen, who has finished as a top-six fantasy QB in each of the last two seasons, including No. 1 in 2020.

Free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Saints) is set to sign with the Buffalo Bills, according to a source Tuesday, March 16. Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Sanders was effective when active last year with the Saints, as he caught 61 of 82 targets for 726 yards and five touchdowns over 14 games but with just five starts. He should be targeted as a WR5 or WR6 in fantasy drafts as the likely No. 2 option opposite WR Stefon Diggs in Buffalo.
Posted 3/10/2021 4:43 pm GMT
New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders was released Wednesday, March 10.
Huddle Up: Sanders is a week shy of his 34th birthday, but he put up a decent line last year with 61 grabs, 726 yards and five scores. He could be a WR5 in fantasy next year.
Posted 2/17/2021 3:03 am GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs has registered a league-high 90 catches against single coverage since the beginning of the 2019 season, according to Pro Football Focus.
Huddle Up: The best route-runners consistently fare very well in this metric, so it should come as no surprise that Diggs gets it done in one-on-one situations. Diggs thrived in his first season with Josh Allen as his quarterback, and it is extremely likely he'll put up a couple more 100-catch seasons if he can stay healthy. Fantasy owners should consider him an elite WR1, even if he is unlikely to repeat his NFL-best 127 receptions from last season.
Posted 2/05/2021 2:26 am GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Gabriel Davis ranked third on the team in receiving yards this season, and he 'seems primed to break out as the Bills' No. 2 option in 2021,' according to Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Davis showed a knack for stretching the field in his rookie season, and with Josh Allen emerging as one of the top quarterbacks in the league, Davis offers some intriguing upside heading into his sophomore campaign.
Posted 1/25/2021 7:07 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (leg) told reporters Monday, Jan. 25, that he broke his fibula in Week 16 but that it wasn't a full break. He also added that he won't need surgery.
Huddle Up: Considering he was able to play with the injury throughout the postseason, Beasley should be ready for offseason work if the league allows teams to hold OTAs and minicamps. Otherwise, he should be fine well in advance of training camp. Beasley just finished the season in which he set career highs with 82 catches and 967 yards. He should be viewed as a low-end WR3/high-end WR4 in fantasy drafts this spring and summer.

Buffalo Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) is active for the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: The Bills had just two players on the injury report, and both Davis and Vernon Butler, the other player in question, are each active. Buffalo is healthy and ready to roll. The rookie's inclusion is good news for the Buffalo offense, as he has really come on down the stretch.
Posted 1/24/2021 4:35 am GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Gabriel Davis' 17.1 yards per reception this season ranked fourth among qualified players.
Huddle Up: The rookie began to show a little more consistency as the season progressed, catching a touchdown in four of the final six games and topping 60 yards three times during the stretch. With Josh Allen emerging as one of the better quarterbacks in the league, Davis has some intriguing potential in dynasty formats thanks to his big-play ability.
Posted 1/22/2021 9:40 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (knee) practiced in full Friday, Jan. 22, and no longer appear on the injury report practiced in full Friday for the AFC Championship game versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Beasley, who suffered his knee injury late in the regular season, curiously popped up on the injury report Thursday after not appearing on it on Wednesday. It is obvious he isn't anywhere close to full health, but his presence is a boon for Josh Allen as it gives him a solid outlet option underneath when Stefon Diggs and/or John Brown can't get open right away. Assuming he doesn't suffer an in-game setback, Beasley is a solid low-priced DFS option with decent upside.
Posted 1/22/2021 9:02 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs (oblique) was upgraded to a full practice Friday, Jan. 22, and was removed from the injury report for the AFC Championship game versus the Kansas City Chiefs.
Huddle Up: Diggs followed the same practice routine as last week and has been on the injury report since the playoffs began, but he has been almost unstoppable so far with at least six catches, 106 yards and a touchdown in each of his team's first two postseason games. Kansas City was very good at limiting wide receiver production during the regular season, but the Chiefs will have their hands full checking Diggs, who has been targeted at least eight times in 14 straight games.
Posted 1/21/2021 10:47 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (knee) was added to the injury report and limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: There has been no indication as of yet from Buffalo's beat writers that Beasley had a setback Thursday, but his name was a curious omission from the injury report on Wednesday considering he is far from 100 percent. Friday's practice report will be telling in terms of what fantasy owners and DFS players should expect, but the likely absence of rookie Gabriel Davis may help Beasley bounce back from his bagel against the Baltimore Ravens in a big way.
Posted 1/21/2021 10:34 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs (oblique) was limited in practice for a second consecutive day Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: Diggs began last week the same way before practicing in full Friday and posting an 8-106-1 line on the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round. There's been no indication the stud receiver has had a setback since he first landed on the injury report days before the first playoff game, so he should be expected to perform at his usual elite level against the Kansas City Chiefs even though they were among the best during the regular season in limiting wide receiver production.
Posted 1/21/2021 10:18 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Jan. 21.
Huddle Up: Davis has emerged as one of Josh Allen's favorite red zone targets despite being the team's fourth receiver. His absence would likely mean Buffalo will have to cut back on the four-wide sets it has been using with regularity in the postseason. If Davis sits, it could mean Dawson Knox will be fed a couple more targets, although he would still not be a recommended play.
Posted 1/20/2021 9:43 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs (oblique) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Diggs has posted at least 100 yards in five of his last six games and is a must-start fantasy option if he is active for the game.
Posted 1/20/2021 9:41 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 20.
Huddle Up: Davis suffered the injury during the Divisional Round playoff game, so fantasy players can monitor the situation. He has been targeted eight times in two playoff games but was held without a catch last week. He could be a fantasy option in some leagues next week but is not a must-start option.
Posted 1/19/2021 11:12 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills RB Zack Moss (ankle) underwent a minor surgical procedure on his ankle Tuesday, Jan. 19, according to his representation. He's expected to be ready for offseason workouts and training camp.
Huddle Up: Moss was already placed on the Reserve/Injured list and was ruled out for the remainder of the playoffs. He could be an RB2 target in 2021 fantasy drafts depending on the expected timeshare with RB Devin Singletary.
Posted 1/14/2021 11:33 pm GMT
Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs (oblique) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Jan. 14, and was removed from the injury report for the AFC Divisional Round game versus the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: It's his first full practice in at least a couple of weeks and puts him squarely on the radar to be the most productive receiver in fantasy this weekend. The NFL's leader in receptions and receiving yards has caught at least six passes in 14 consecutive outings and topped 75 receiving yards in six straight. Furthermore, he has logged at least eight targets in every game since Week 4.
Posted 1/14/2021 5:55 am GMT
Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky may not be in the team's plans for 2021, in the opinion of ESPN's Jeff Dickerson, who noted that GM Ryan Pace declined to say the team would try to re-sign Trubisky during a press conference on Wednesday, Jan. 13. Pace instead said that the Bears 'need more out of the position,' and that 'everything is on the table' for next season.
Huddle Up: Chicago's brief offensive resurgence came crashing down in its final two games against the Packers and Saints, both double-digit losses, and Trubisky did little to engender much confidence. A change of scenery might be best for Trubisky, who will forever be known in Chicago as "not Patrick Mahomes or Deshaun Watson." Keep an eye out to see where Trubisky lands, as he could have some upside in the right spot.
