2024 RTSports Outlook

Claypool had another disappointing season, catching just eight passes for 77 yards in 12 games. He played with the Bears and Dolphins, but couldn't find his footing with either team. Claypool had two straight seasons with 800-plus yards to start his career but the last two seasons have gone south for him. He is just hoping to keep a roster spot this season. Claypool is a very tall receiver that has good quickness for a man of his size. He does lack a little top speed but runs solid routes and can be an asset in the red zone because of his size. He also does a good job of making the acrobatic catch. He will drop some passes, though. And consistency and maturity have been an issue for him throughout his career.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Claypool is trending the wrong way. He could rebound a little this year but don't expect him to help fantasy teams. He might get 20 receptions for 250 yards and a touchdown.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Chase Claypool has been the most consistent receiver through OTAs so far in Buffalo, according to Bills beat writer Matt Parrino. Claypool signed a one-year contract with the Bills earlier this month and is expected to have a depth role in the offense in 2024. However, the 25-year-old has performed well through the early part of OTAs and is making a strong case to not only make the 53-man roster but have a steady role in this offense. Currently, the Buffalo wide receiver room consists of Khalil Shakir, veterans Curtis Samuel and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Florida State rookie Keon Coleman, who was drafted with the 33rd overall pick this spring. This is a story to monitor over the course of the offseason, as Claypool could be an enticing late-round pick in deeper leagues if he earns a starting role in this offense.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Chase Claypool has seen his stock steadily decline since his 11-touchdown rookie season in 2020 with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Last year with the Chicago Bears and Miami Dolphins, he caught just eight passes for 77 yards. He signed with the Bills on a one-year, $1.1 million deal this offseason, giving him another chance to revive his career. So far at Bills' OTAs, he's making a good impression. "Very impressed with Chase. Really just starting with his approach, here's a veteran receiver, former high pick, that has been on a journey, right, through the course of recently in his career," head coach Sean McDermott said. "I applaud Chase for coming here to see where things go. And so he's very focused, he's working extremely hard day in and day out." The former Notre Dame wideout has an uphill battle to re-enter the fantasy radar in 2024, but a wide receiver group consisting of Khalil Shakir, Curtis Samuel, and rookie Keon Coleman isn't the most daunting group to compete with. Still, he's likely to be a non-factor if he makes the team's 53-man roster, barring a surprise.

The Buffalo Bills signed former Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool to an undisclosed one-year deal on Friday. Even with the departures of Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis this offseason, Claypool could face an uphill battle to crack the top three in Buffalo after the addition of rookie Keon Coleman with the first pick of the second round of this year's draft. The 25-year-old former second-rounder by the Steelers in 2020 out of Notre Dame had a career-low eight receptions on 21 targets for 77 yards and one touchdown in 12 games (two starts) with the Bears and Miami Dolphins in 2023. Claypool could connect on some deep plays down the field with quarterback Josh Allen in 2024, but unless injuries open up a starting spot for Claypool, he's a long shot for consistent fantasy production.
