Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy expects to maintain a large role in the offense in his age-31 season in 2019. 'I'm a type of guy, I thrive off of having a big name. So when guys come to my team, they're curious to see, 'How is LeSean McCoy? Is he still a good player?' I mean, I'm a dominant player. I think that speaks for itself. But I'll be in the same role as last year. And I look forward to putting some numbers up and bouncing back from that last season,' McCoy said Tuesday, June 12.
Huddle Up: McCoy totaled just 752 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns last season. Both numbers were career worsts as he played in 14 games but made just 13 starts. He remains No. 1 on the Bills' depth chart, but he'll be competing against veteran RB Frank Gore and third-round rookie Devin Singletary. He's fallen into RB4 territory but could prove to be a steal at a mid-round price.

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and Devin Singletary all received snaps with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, June 11.
Huddle Up: It appears like the Bills may go with a committee at running back this season, so fantasy players should monitor the situation during training camp. McCoy may have the most fantasy value among the group but probably is only a No. 3 running back at this point.

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) is on schedule in his recovery and should be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Beasley has been one of the better slot receivers over the last few seasons and should see plenty of targets with the Bills. He can a No. 4 receiver in deeper fantasy leagues but could be more valuable in point-per-reception leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen has been impressing offensive coordinator Brian Daboll in organized team activities (OTAs) and has even been allowed to call plays at times. 'There's been a series in there where I said, 'Hey, you got it, bro. Take it, call it. Go no-huddle and you call it on your own,'' Daboll said Tuesday, May 28.
Huddle Up: Allen started 11 games as a rookie in 2018, going 5-6 with 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. The Bills upgraded their receiving corps this offseason with the additions of free agents Cole Beasley (Cowboys) and John Brown (Ravens). Allen isn't yet in the QB1 mix, but he's worthy of strong consideration as a high-upside QB2 heading into his sophomore season.

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (foot, ankle) is not participating in practices because he is coming off foot and ankle injuries.
Huddle Up: Gore is part of a crowded backfield in Buffalo, so his role is uncertain at this point. He has posted solid numbers over the last few seasons and could be a late-round pick in standard leagues if he receives a solid role in the running game.
Posted 5/21/2019 4:05 pm UTC
Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley (core) underwent core-muscle surgery a few weeks ago, head coach Sean McDermott said Tuesday, May 21, and is being held out of OTAs.
Huddle Up: Beasley should recover in time for training camp and man the slot position for the Bills, but it remains a low-volume passing offense, and Beasley should go undrafted in all but the deepest of leagues.

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is someone that could be traded before this year's deadline, in the opinion of ESPN's Bill Barnwell, who notes the team signed free-agent RBs Frank Gore and T.J. Yeldon and also drafted RB Devin Singletary in Round 3.
Huddle Up: It's not hard to connect the dots, something we noted even after GM Brandon Beane publicly endorsed McCoy as his starter following the Singletary selection. McCoy is older, has a lot of mileage on his body, struggled last season and is owed a decent chunk of change. If the team can flip McCoy for a draft pick you have to figure they'd be tempted -- Barnwell opines McCoy could be a fit for Andy Reid with the Kansas City Chiefs. McCoy is already no better than an RB3, and his situation is one to monitor as the season draws near.
Posted 4/27/2019 5:04 am UTC
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is still the team's starting running back, according to comments made by GM Brandon Beane following the third-round selection of RB RB Devin Singletary. Beane lauded Singletary's instincts and vision, and did mention age at the position, a reference to McCoy, who turns 31 during the offseason.
Huddle Up: It's commonplace for GMs to back their current starter, but you have to believe the Bills are gonna take a long look at McCoy in the wake of this selection given his age, mileage and cap figure. If he remains the starter in Buffalo, McCoy could hold RB3 value.
Posted 4/22/2019 12:04 pm UTC
Free-agent RB T.J. Yeldon (Jaguars) signed a two-year deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, April 22. Financial terms weren't disclosed.
Huddle Up: Yeldon has been a versatile, yet unspectacular, back in Jacksonville. He has spurts of usage, particularly when filling in for injuries, and it'll be much of the same in Buffalo. He posted 55 catches for 487 yards and four scores through the air last year, which will make him an RB4 option in PPR leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) said earlier this week that his elbow injury is in the past, and he is having 'no problems at all.' He met with physical therapists for the first couple of weeks of the offseason, but was fine and has been throwing ever since.
Huddle Up: The Bills look to be an improved offense heading into 2019, but they still have work to do in the passing game. Allen should be considered as a low-end No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams until further notice.

Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley plans to sign a four-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $29 million, according to sources. The deal will include $14.4 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Beasley was one of the best slot receivers available and likely will be a reliable target for the Bills as a slot receiver. He has caught at least 50 passes in three of the last four seasons and has been targeted at least 60 times in all four of those seasons. He probably will be a low-end No. 3 receiver or a No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/12/2019 4:03 pm UTC
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown plans to sign a three-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $27 million, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Brown had a big first half of the 2018 season but struggled once Lamar Jackson took over as the starting quarterback. He likely will compete for a starting job with the Buffalo and can still make big plays. He can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Posted 3/11/2019 9:03 pm UTC
Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent TE Tyler Kroft plans to sign a three-year contract with the Buffalo Bills worth $18.75 million, according to a source. The deal could be worth as much as $21 million.
Huddle Up: Kroft was limited to only five games this past season because of injuries but did post 404 yards and seven touchdowns in 2017. He likely will take over as the starting tight end for the Bills and could be a No. 2 fantasy tight end.
Posted 3/11/2019 8:03 pm UTC
Miami Dolphins impending free-agent RB Frank Gore agreed to terms on a one-year, $2 million deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, March 11, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Gore, of course, will be splitting time with fellow veteran LeSean McCoy. Look for Gore to primarily see short-yardage and goal-line carries. He's an iron man, but don't draft Gore as more than a fourth reserve.
Posted 3/06/2019 11:03 pm UTC
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown is expected to seek $8 million to $9 million per season in his next contract, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Brown struggled during the second half of the season but played well with Joe Flacco as the quarterback. He should receive interest from multiple teams and could be a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.
Posted 3/03/2019 3:03 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is reportedly seeking $20 million in guaranteed money, according to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic.
Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 30-year-old Beasley led the Cowboys in targets (87) and receptions (65) in 2018 and is worthy of consideration as a flier during the later rounds of PPR leagues next season, depending on his landing spot.
Posted 2/28/2019 4:02 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley likely will test the market as an unrestricted free agent, but the Cowboys are still hoping they can re-sign him at the right price. 'Oh, we love Cole Beasley,' Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Thursday, Feb. 28. 'If you followed our football team the last few years you know the impact that he's made on our team. He's a great young man, and he's been a heck of a player for us, but you know the business of the NFL is challenging. There's a lot of different guys that you want to keep on our team, throughout the free agent process, and unfortunately when you have players like Cole Beasley, other teams want them, too. So we certainly want Cole Beasley back. Again, he's made a huge impact on our team. We want him with our team as we go forward for a long, long time, but business will creep into that on both sides. Hopefully we can get to a point where we can make a deal with him and some of these other guys where it works well for everybody and we keep moving forward.'
Huddle Up: Beasley led the team's wide receivers and tight ends with 87 targets and 65 receptions -- both the second-best single-season marks in his seven-year career -- but it sounds like he may generate WR4 fantasy intrigue in another uniform next season.
Posted 2/26/2019 7:02 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys WR Allen Hurns could take over as the slot receiver if impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley is not re-signed. Jones iterated that the Cowboys would like to retain Beasley.
Huddle Up: The entirety of the Dallas receiving corps last season was essentially Amari Cooper and a little bit of Michael Gallup. Hurns and Beasley disappointed, but Hurns in particular would make for a late-round flier if Beasley leaves.
Posted 2/22/2019 1:02 am UTC
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown could be pursued by the Cleveland Browns in free agency to fill a need for a deep threat in the passing game, in the opinion of Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Brown was off to a fast start in 2018 before the Ravens made the move to Lamar Jackson at quarterback and adopted a run-heavy approach. Baker Mayfield could make better use of Brown's big-play potential, allowing him to become a touchdown-dependent WR3.
Posted 2/19/2019 12:02 am UTC
Miami Dolphins running backs coach Eric Studesville said he is not sure if impending free-agent RB Frank Gore will receive a contract offer from the Dolphins this offseason.
Huddle Up: Gore had a solid season in 2018 with 722 yards but failed to record a rushing touchdown. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job this offseason but would be a good No. 2 running back for a team. He will have some fantasy value in standard leagues if he finds a good situation.
Posted 2/08/2019 9:02 pm UTC
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown probably will not re-sign with the Ravens this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley.
Huddle Up: Brown struggled to find chemistry with Lamar Jackson and probably will look for a better situation in free agency. He should receive interest from multiple teams because of his big play ability. He can be considered a No. 3 fantasy receiver depending on his situation.
Posted 1/28/2019 11:01 pm UTC
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent WR John Brown caught only eight passes for 114 yards and one touchdown in seven games when QB Lamar Jackson took over the starting job. Brown recorded 34 catches for 601 yards and four touchdowns in nine games with QB Joe Flacco. Brown said he is open to returning to the Ravens but would expect things to change if he re-signed.
Huddle Up: Brown should receive interest from multiple teams if he hits the free-agent market, so he may look for a different situation this offseason. He played well during the first half of the 2018 season and may be able to find a starting job. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues next season depending on his situation.
Posted 1/27/2019 3:01 am UTC
Baltimore Ravens WR John Brown remains open to re-signing with Baltimore, but he said he would like to be in an offense that takes more shots downfield.
Huddle Up: Brown's big-play ability was on display early in the year when Joe Flacco was under center, but he was basically a non-factor when Lamar Jackson took over as the starter. Jackson should improve as a passer, but Baltimore's run-first philosophy probably isn't going away. If he is a Raven in 2019, Brown will be a WR4, at best.
Posted 1/25/2019 5:01 am UTC
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley could be a possible free-agent target for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, assuming the team does not retain WR Randall Cobb, who is also a free agent.
Huddle Up: It certainly seems like a return to Dallas is unlikely for Beasley, whose comments about the team's management on social media drew a swift rebuke, so the Packers do make some sense as none of their returning wideouts fit the traditional skill set of a slot receiver. Beasley has shown enough in spots to be worth tracking this offseason to see where he lands.
Posted 1/23/2019 7:01 pm UTC
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy believes he and the Bills will bounce back after a personally and collectively trying season. McCoy had his worst season as a professional football player, he was the subject of accusation in an alleged domestic incident and he was benched in Week 16.
Huddle Up: What's more is that McCoy will turn 31 years old this offseason and is over the hill in running back years. He should still be the main guy in Buffalo's backfield, but he is far from being the RB1 conversation.
Posted 1/22/2019 9:01 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys impending free-agent WR Cole Beasley claimed Tuesday, Jan. 22, that the Dallas front office encourages the coaching staff to get the football to certain players. 'I haven't been a huge priority in that regard. Maybe that will change but I'm not sure,' Beasley said.
Huddle Up: Beasley's frustrations are evident and understandable, although Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Michael Gallup are all bigger, more talented threats with the ball. Beasley does have a role to play and put together his second best season from a statistical standpoint. That being said, he's only a mid- to late-round PPR flier if he stays in Dallas.
Posted 1/21/2019 1:01 am UTC
Buffalo Bills WR Zay Jones had five of his seven touchdowns over the final five games of 2018, and he topped 60 yards three times in that span after topping 60 yards just twice through the first 11 games.
Huddle Up: After a rough rookie year, Jones showed signs of life in his sophomore campaign. Buffalo has been searching for a No. 1 option in the passing game, and Jones could have a chance to fill that role in 2019. Keep him in mind as a fantasy sleeper for next season.
Posted 1/15/2019 5:01 am UTC
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Foster led the NFL with 20 yards per catch (minimum 25 receptions) and is one of only four players since 2015 to record three 100-yard receiving games in their rookie season.
Huddle Up: The latter group consists of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Michael Thomas and Amari Cooper, so it's quite remarkable he was able to pull that off despite not receiving regular playing time until Week 10. The Bills might try to upgrade at receiver in the offseason, but the emergence of Foster and Isaiah McKenzie following the release of Kelvin Benjamin may make give Buffalo pause. Assuming he keeps his starting job, Foster will be an enticing late-round fantasy flier next season.
Posted 1/12/2019 10:01 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley (ankle) will be active Saturday, Jan. 12, against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Beasley hasn't been much of a factor for the Cowboys for the most part. He could be counted on even less today coming off a sprained ankle. Starting him is playing with fire.
