2016 DRAFT GUIDE

Buffalo Bills
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bills are a team on the rise. They finished .500 last year and will try to improve on that this year. Much of the improvement will depend on the play of second-year starter Tyrod Taylor. He had a great first season as the starter but will need to keep getting better and more consistent to make this a playoff team. The defense is top notch and the offense can be explosive, making the Bills a tough weekly play.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Having foot surgery during the offseason is a concern but Sammy Watkins should be ready for the start of the year and play a huge role for the Bills offense. He didn't play a full season last year but still managed to have a 1,000-yard season and score nine touchdowns. Watkins can be a fantasy force as long as he is healthy and playing. He is ready to take his game to another level and could come at a really good price tag for all those owners scared of his foot surgery.
FANTASY DUD
Running back LeSean McCoy had a solid first season with the Bills last year, topping 1,000 total yards while catching 32 passes. He isn't getting any younger, though, and has a young back pushing him for playing time (Karlos Williams). He wasn't able to play a full season last year because of some nagging injuries and more could be expected this year because of his age and tons of touches. McCoy is a risky proposition at this stage of his career.

Team Notes

Jun 22, 06:53 PM Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor and the Bills are both open to an in-season extension, according to a source. Talks have been ongoing through the offseason, but an extension is not expected before the season starts.
Jun 21, 08:53 PM Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor feels he will restore a winning tradition in Buffalo, and he feels he can do exactly what Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton did last season. 'I am 100 percent confident that I can do that. Cam played very well and willed his team. He took his team to the game that everyone who plays this game wants to get to. I commend him for that. We came in the same year so I definitely kept up with him. We became friends throughout our time in the league. Yes, I am 100 percent confident I can do the things that he did,' Taylor said.
Jun 21, 08:53 PM Buffalo Bills LB IK Enemkpali has worked with the first-team defense in offseason practice and he might push LB Manny Lawson for a starting job.
Jun 21, 08:53 PM Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams was carrying extra weight during minicamp, and said he ate so his pregnant fiance wouldn't feel bad. He has plenty of time to get into shape, but he'll need to be in top form to hold off hungry RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams.

Fantasy Impact: This is a situation to watch, but we think Williams will get it together before the start of the year. He can get a lot of work as the top backup for the Bills.

Jun 21, 01:13 AM Buffalo Bills WR Dezmin Lewis impressed during minicamp, and drew the raves from head coach Rex Ryan, who said Lewis 'consistently has done a great job.'
Jun 20, 05:03 PM Buffalo Bills FS Phillip Thomas (undisclosed) reverted to the Reserve/Injured list Monday, June 20, after being waived/injured Friday, June 17.
Jun 20, 11:43 AM Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) will remain in Buffalo, N.Y., most of the summer to remain close to the medical staff to ensure he stays on track to return for training camp.
Jun 19, 08:53 PM Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) expects to be ready when training camp begins July 30, but he said will be cautious when he returns to the field.

Fantasy Impact: This is good news. Watkins seems on track to be just fine for the start of the season.
Jun 16, 03:03 PM Buffalo Bills WR Dezmin Lewis caught the eye of head coach Rex Ryan during offseason workouts. 'You saw him. As the year went on, he kept getting better and better, but I think he's made strides even from that point to now,' Ryan said. 'Here's a guy, a young man that came in from a small college, but man, has he really taken off. And you can talk to any of our guys in the weight room and all that. He's done a phenomenal job there, getting stronger, faster, and then, (the offense is) not Chinese to him anymore. Last year, I think there was a little of that.'
Jun 15, 10:13 PM Buffalo Bills RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams saw the reps in practice Wednesday, June 15, with RBs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams sidelined. Williams was most impressive in the practice, showing surprising ability to shift direction and make defenders miss.
