Buffalo Bills QB Matt Barkley is expected to receive meaningful snaps during the Week 17 game, according to a source.
Huddle Up: It looks like Josh Allen may only play a few series and sit out the rest of the game, so fantasy players probably should look for other options for their lineup and keep Allen on the bench.

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Barkley is being prepared to start Sunday against the Tennessee Titans in Week 5, according to head coach Sean McDermott Monday, Sept. 30, as starter Josh Allen (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Barkley wouldn't be worth fantasy consideration in standard formats in a moderately tough matchup. He's nothing more than a low-tier QB2 with only the Miami Dolphins (Josh Rosen) and Detroit Lions (Matthew Stafford) on bye.
