| Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins out for Week 7 -- Thu Oct 22 9:30 am --|
EJ Manuel makes second straight start
|For the second straight week, EJ Manuel will start at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. Tyrod Taylor's knee has not healed as quickly as the team had hoped, so the 2013 first-round pick gets the nod. (Buffalo News)|
FF Today's Take: Taylor was not stepping into his throws according to Rex Ryan so it's another start for Manuel who went 28 of 42 for 263 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT against the Bengals last week. With Watkins out, Chris Hogan and Robert Woods will be the top two wide receivers. TE Charles Clay should see plenty of targets as well.
| Sammy Watkins not likely to play Week 7 -- Mon Oct 19 10:00 am --|
|Source confirms that Kyle Williams will not play Sunday. And, also, Sammy Watkins is "doubtful" to play this Sunday against the Jags. Bills (Joe Buscaglia on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Watkins caught a second quarter touchdown then had to be assisted off the field. He's missed the last two weeks with a calf injury and seems unlikely to play this week in London against the Jaguars. With Percy Harvin (hip) likely out as well, The passing game should continue to funnel through TE Charles Clay.
| McCoy, Watkins likely out for Bills in Week 4 -- Thu Oct 1 7:15 pm --|
RB could rest until hamstring is 100 percent
|The Bills won’t officially rule out either player, but there appears to be little chance that running back LeSean McCoy or wide receiver Sammy Watkins is in the lineup against the Giants this weekend. McCoy has been dealing with a hamstring injury for several weeks and said earlier this week that he thought there would be some benefit to sitting out this week’s game in hopes of getting himself closer to 100 percent for Week Five and beyond. Watkins suffered a calf injury last Sunday and, like McCoy, hasn’t practiced this week.
“We won’t say out. But yeah, you guys can figure it out,” Ryan said, via Joe Buscaglia of WKBW. (Pro Football Talk)|
FF Today's Take: The Bills are taking the approach with McCoy they probably should have used in Week 1, but at least they sound committed to getting "Shady" healthy. Karlos Williams should be considered a must-start, even against a Giants' defense that has been pretty stout so far. Robert Woods and Percy Harvin should see extensive action in Watkins' absence, although Charles Clay is likely to be the best fantasy play of the pass-catching options.
