| McCoy limited at practice Friday|
WRs Benjamin, Thompson also limited
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Jan 5, 11:15 am
|Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) will not practice Friday but coach Sean McDermott said Friday there is "hope" that Milano can play. TE Charles Clay (knee), QB/WR Joe Webb (ankle), RB LeSean McCoy (ankle), WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) and WR Deonte Thompson (shoulder) will be limited. CB Shareece Wright (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: McCoy will likely be listed as questionable and be a gametime decision. If he ends up being ruled out, Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy will carry the running back load.
| Kelvin Benjamin sits out of practice|
Receiver still dealing with soreness in knee
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 20, 11:13 am
|It probably doesn’t come as any surprise, but Kelvin Benjamin and E.J. Gaines are among the players who will not practice at One Bills Drive on Wednesday.
Benjamin has been held out or limited in Wednesday practices since aggravating the torn meniscus in his knee against the Colts in Week 14.
FFToday's Take: Kelvin Benjamin continues to play through his knee injury, catching two balls for 20 yards in last week's win against the Dolphins. Unfortunately, the former Panther is too inconsistent to be a trustworthy fantasy option even if he is able to play in Week 16.
| Kelvin Benjamin hopeful to play|

|#Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin, listed as questionable with a knee injury, is hopeful to play today, source said. The team has been confident all week he would do so. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Benjamin has been bothered by a knee injury for a few weeks now, missing a portion of last week's game. He's been expected to play after being limited in practice this week, but the risk of re-injury makes him a dicey WR3 against the Dolphins.
| Bills expected to start Nathan Peterman at QB|
Knee injury for Tyrod Taylor
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 10, 7:15 am
|Buffalo is expected to start rookie QB Nathan Peterman vs Colts with QB Tyrod Taylor questionable with a knee injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Peterman took the majority of reps in practice this week so this doesn't come as a surprise. Peterman was a disaster in his last start against the Chargers, throwing 5 INTs in the first half. Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and TE Charles Clay are not desirable fantasy options.
| Tyrod Taylor a gametime decision|
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 8, 11:50 am
|The Bills' starting quarterback will be a game-time decision, coach Sean McDermott said Friday.
With Tyrod Taylor battling a knee injury, McDermott said the team was working through Taylor's availability.
McDermott said earlier this week that Taylor is the starter when healthy. (Buffalo News)|
FFToday's Take: If Taylor sits, Nathan Peterman would be the starter and we've seen what kind of disaster that could be. In positive news, Kelvin Benjamin should return to action which should help the offense as a whole.
| Bills place Jordan Matthews on IR|
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 5, 4:00 pm
|The Buffalo Bills Tuesday placed defensive end Shaq Lawson and wide receiver Jordan Matthews on their injured-reserve list, ending the season for both players.
Lawson suffered an ankle injury in Sunday’s 23-3 loss against the New England Patriots. Matthews had been dealing with a knee issue. (Buffalo News)|
FFToday's Take: Matthews had a disappointing first season in Buffalo (25-282-1) battling both knee and thumb injuries. Zay Jones will operate as the Bills No.1 receiver with Kelvin Benjamin nursing a knee injury of his own. Wide receiver Brandon Reilly will be called up from the practice squad.
| LeSean McCoy misses practice Friday|
Expected to play
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 1, 11:30 am
|LeSean McCoy has knee soreness and will not practice today. Doesn't look like he'll miss the game. Kelvin Benjamin OUT Sunday. (Sal Capaccio on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: McCoy practiced in full Thursday then popped up on the injury report with a knee issue. It sounds like the Bills will give their veteran RB some rest today and he's expected to start on Sunday. Mike Tolbert has been ruled out, meaning Travaris Cadet will again be McCoy's backup.
| Kelvin Benjamin has torn meniscus|
Timetable for return unknown
By: Doug Orth | Mon Nov 27, 5:00 pm
|Bills confirm Kelvin Benjamin has a torn meniscus. Sean McDermott misunderstood a question about his injury today. (ESPN - Mike Rodak)|
FFToday's Take: It's a tough break for owners hoping he was on track for a Week 13 return. There's a strong chance Benjamin may not be able to play again during the final four games of the fantasy season, which would leave Zay Jones as the likely top receiver in Buffalo's ground-based offensive attack. If so, owners should treat the rookie as a low-end WR3.
| No practice for Benjamin Friday, Tolbert out|
Travaris Cadet will backup McCoy
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 24, 10:30 am
|The Buffalo Bills could be without their top wide receiver when they head to Kansas City to play the Chiefs.
Kelvin Benjamin is not expected to practice on Friday. He did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday, either. Running back Mike Tolbert (hamstring) will be out for the Bills this week. (New York Upstate)|
FFToday's Take: With both Benjamin and Tolbert likely to miss, Zay Jones and Travaris Cadet will see an increase in snaps. Cadet will be the primary backup to LeSean McCoy while Jones, Jordan Matthews and Deonte Thompson will be the top three wideouts against the Chiefs.
