Bills GM Doug Whaley said he does not want to see rookie QB Cardale Jones get any snaps this season.
"That would mean something terrible happened," Whaley said. The GM was noncommittal on Tyrod Taylor's future with the team, but the reality is the Bills do not have any other options. Jones is a fourth-round project who struggled with inaccuracy in camp, and there is zero chance the Bills will feel comfortable handing him the keys next season. With backup E.J. Manuel headed to free agency, Jones could serve as the No. 2 next year.
Bills GM Doug Whaley said the team will decide whether to retain Tyrod Taylor after the season.
"He's got 4 more games to write this chapter," Whaley said. "Then after this season, like everybody on the team, we're going to do an evaluation and then we'll go from there." Whaley was equally cryptic about Taylor's future last offseason before signing him to a "six-year, $92 million" contract in August which was really a one-year deal with a $27.5 million option for 2017. Taylor has played well enough to cement himself as the starter in Buffalo, and the Bills really do not have any other option but to retain him. Whaley could be soft-playing his hand in an attempt to finagle a renegotiation, but Buffalo has to retain Taylor at this point.
Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, wrist) said he will play this week against the Colts.
Clowney sat out last week's game against the Packers, but he is on track to play against Indy after returning to practice Thursday. "I feel good. I feel good enough to go," Clowney said. "Yeah, I'll be out there." With CB Johnathan Joseph expected to sit with an injury to his ribs, the Texans will need Clowney to get after Andrew Luck on Sunday.
Chris Conley caught 2-of-3 targets for 70 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.
The 70 yards matched Conley's career high. He caught a pair of deep seeds from Alex Smith (seriously). Despite the nice night, Conley obviously remains miles from fantasy relevance.
Charcandrick West rushed twice for two yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.
West's score was a pure vulturing of Spencer Ware. Ware out-snapped West 40-13, but saw his slump deepen on the ground. It's possible coach Andy Reid gets West more involved for Week 15. Even if that's the case, West won't be a viable FLEX option.
Clive Walford caught 2-of-3 targets for 21 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.
Standard-operating procedure for Walford this season. Wait 'til next year in fantasy leagues.
Jalen Richard rushed six times for 29 yards in the Raiders' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.
Richard was just a changeup behind Latavius Murray, who carried the ball 22 times. Richard was on the field for some important snaps late, but it wasn't an indictment of Murray's play. Murray was the Raiders' best offensive player this evening. Richard is a nice COP back, but has zero standalone value.
Tyreek Hill caught 6-of-6 targets for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders, adding a 78-yard punt return score.
Hill also had a two-yard rush. Hill is turning into one of the most dangerous players in the league with the ball in his hands. He scorched David Amerson on his 36-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter. He was shot out of not one, but two cannons on his special teams score. The big night came even with Jeremy Maclin back in the lineup. Hill should maintain WR3 value down the stretch.
