2019 RTSports Outlook

Kroft broke a bone in his foot last year, limiting him to just five games. He had four receptions for 36 yards before getting injured. He signed with the Bills this offseason and will compete for a big role with his new team. He could be the starter for Buffalo. Kroft has some starting experience, getting a chance to start for the Bengals in 2017, catching a career high 42 passes in that role. He broke his foot again this offseason, though, which is a concern. He should be ready for the start of the season but the missed time could hurt his chances to win the starting job. Kroft is a solid pass-catching tight end that plays more like a receiver than a tight end. He is a tall target with plus speed and decent hands. He isn't much of a blocker, though, but has improved since entering the league.

FANTASY OUTLOOK:   Kroft could set career highs this year but don't expect huge numbers in this offense. He is more spot start material if he wins the starting tight end job. He could get around 50 receptions for 500 yards and five touchdowns.

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Fantasy Spin: It appears like Kroft will make his season debut in Week 7 and could see some targets during the game. He could be a bye week replacement in deeper leagues or a low-end No. 1 tight end in some other leagues.

Buffalo Bills tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle) practiced in full all week and was left off the final injury report for Week 7 against the Dolphins. Kroft is set to make his season debut this Sunday. The matchup is a great one against the winless Dolphins, but fantasy owners can't expect much of Kroft right away, and he could split snaps with rookie Dawson Knox. Kroft is off the fantasy radar for now, even for those desperate at the position. His return is undoubtedly bad news for Knox owners, though.

Buffalo Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) and LB Corey Thompson (ankle) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins. CB Taron Johnson (hamstring) was a full participant in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest), QB Josh Allen (hand), WR John Brown (groin), OT Cody Ford (concussion), WR Robert Foster (groin), TE Tyler Kroft (ankle), C Mitch Morse (ankle), DE Trent Murphy (concussion), OT Ty Nsekhe (rest), RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) and RB Frank Gore (rest) participated fully in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and no longer appear on the injury report.

Oct 17 4:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Spin: Kroft has not played yet this season, so the Bills may decide to ease him into the passing game. He could still be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues because the team is playing the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.

Oct 16 3:53pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Spin: Kroft has missed every game this season because of various injuries but appears to have a chance to play in Week 7. He is a risky option since his role in the passing game is uncertain but could be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues because of the matchup.

Buffalo Bills tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle) is progressing but has no timetable for a return, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Kroft was close to returning in Week 3 but suffered an ankle injury in practice. He has yet to make his season debut and is well off the fantasy radar right now. Rookie Dawson Knox has emerged in the last couple of weeks at the position, but he's nothing more than a low-end, touchdown-dependent TE2, especially if quarterback Matt Barkley has to start this week against the Titans with Josh Allen (concussion) injured.

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Fantasy Spin: Kroft still hasn't suited up yet this season. Fantasy managers should have moved on by now.

Sep 20 5:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle, foot) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

Fantasy Spin: Kroft was making progress from his foot injury but is now dealing with an ankle injury. Dawson Knox and Tommy Sweeney will continue to receive playing time at tight end, but neither player has fantasy value.

Buffalo Bills CB Taron Johnson (hamstring), TE Tyler Kroft (foot, ankle) and RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Sept. 20, and have been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest), WR John Brown (rest), RB Frank Gore (rest), OT Ty Nsekhe (rest), WR Andre Roberts (quad) and CB Tre'Davious White (neck) were full participants Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Sep 20 1:10pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle), who injured his ankle in practice on Thursday, will not play in Week 3 against the Bengals. However, a source said his low ankle sprain gives him a chance to make his season debut in Week 4. With rookies Dawson Knox and Tommy Sweeney splitting work at tight end for Buffalo, neither player is intriguing in season-long leagues at a weak tight end position in fantasy. Even when Kroft makes his season debut, he'll be nothing more than a desperation low-end TE2 play, although he could have streaming value later in the season.

Sep 19 3:50pm ET

Buffalo Bills tight end Tyler Kroft (ankle) left practice on Thursday after suffering an ankle injury. The severity of the injury is unknown, but this is obviously bad news for a player who was on the verge of making his season debut against his old team, the Bengals. Even had Kroft played in Week 3, though, he would've been a poor choice as a low-end TE2. Check back on his status on Friday. If he misses another game, rookies Dawson Knox and Tommy Sweeney will once again split the workload. Neither player is an option in redraft leagues.

Sep 19 3:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills CB Taron Johnson (hamstring), RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) and RB Frank Gore (rest) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 19. TE Tyler Kroft (foot, ankle) was downgraded to a limited practice, while WR Andre Roberts (quad) and CB Tre'Davious White (neck) were limited for a second straight day.

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during practice Thursday, Sept. 19.

From TheHuddle

Sep 18 3:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills TE Tyler Kroft (foot) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept 18.

Fantasy Spin: Kroft appears to be on track to play in Week 3 and could take over the starting tight end job. He should not be a starting fantasy option this week, but fantasy players could keep an eye on him because he could be a waiver wire option down the road.
