Charles Clay will not play Week 13 against the Raiders due to the expected birth of his child.
Clay did not travel with the team to Oakland on Saturday, and it does not look like he will make the trip on his own. Clay has not contributed much this year, but the Bills are dangerously short of pass catchers. Sammy Watkins may be forced into more snaps than Buffalo would otherwise like to see. Dec 4 - 2:13 PM

Charles Clay (knee, questionable) did not travel with the team to Oakland because of the expected birth of his child.

Clay was listed as questionable with a knee injury as he has been most of the season, but it looks like he has a real chance to sit out this week because of the birth of his child. The Bills only said, "His game status remains questionable." Buffalo promoted TE Gerald Christian on Saturday, suggesting there is at least a chance Clay will sit, but he could certainly join his teammates in Oakland Saturday night or Sunday morning. Either way, he is not a viable fantasy play.
Dec 3 - 1:19 PM

Charles Clay (knee) returned to Bills practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Even with Buffalo's entire receiver corps injured, Clay can barely be trusted as a TE2.
Dec 1 - 7:27 PM

Charles Clay (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Clay rarely practices on Wednesdays. He's in no danger of missing Sunday's game at Oakland. Clay is well off the fantasy radar and has been all season.
Nov 30 - 7:34 PM

Charles Clay caught 2-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Bills' Week 12 win over the Jaguars.

Regardless of matchups, Clay has not been a fantasy factor at any point this season. He will barely be on the TE2 map for Buffalo's Week 13 trip to Oakland.
Nov 27 - 4:25 PM

Charles Clay did not practice Wednesday.

It's more of a rest day for the veteran. He routinely takes Wednesdays off. With Robert Woods (knee) likely out, Clay could see a couple more targets.
Nov 23 - 12:12 PM

Charles Clay caught 5-of-7 targets for 23 yards in the Bills' Week 11 win over the Bengals.

Even as Robert Woods (knee) exited this game in the first half and did not return, Clay didn't step up for a fantasy-viable box score. Clay has some value to the Bills' offense, but he lacks value in fantasy football leagues. Even if Woods misses Week 12 against the Jags, Clay would be a poor TE1 streamer.
Nov 20 - 4:13 PM

Charles Clay caught 3-of-4 targets for nine yards in the Bills' Week 9 loss to the Seahawks.

Clay clearly couldn't get loose for any substantial gains. He was clearly the second or third fiddle behind Robert Woods, who caught 10-of-13 targets for 162 yards and dominated the middle of the field. Clay is a TE2/3.
Nov 8 - 12:48 AM

Charles Clay (knee) is questionable for Week 9 against the Seahawks.

Clay never practices in full, but he always plays. He is a low-ceiling TE2 against the Seahawks.
Nov 5 - 12:48 PM

Charles Clay (knee) remains limited in Bills practice.

The TE2 never practices in full.
Nov 3 - 6:04 PM

Charles Clay hauled in just two-of-six targets for six yards Sunday in the Bills' Week 8 loss to the Patriots.

Clay injured his shoulder laying out for a deep pass in the second quarter but was back for the start of the second half. Tyrod Taylor couldn’t get anything going in the passing game and Clay didn’t do much to help him out. The Bills have now lost two straight following a four-game winning streak. It doesn’t get any easier next week against Seattle.
Oct 30 - 5:43 PM

Charles Clay (knee) returned to Bills practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Clay will be his usual low-end TE2 against the Patriots. Clay has demonstrated zero upside in two years as a Bill.
Oct 27 - 6:27 PM

Charles Clay (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He rarely practices on Wednesdays. Even with Sammy Watkins (foot) sidelined, Clay hasn't been much of a fantasy factor. Even with six teams on bye, he won't be more than a TE2 against New England this week.
Oct 26 - 5:01 PM

Charles Clay caught 2-of-5 targets for 29 yards in the Bills' Week 7 loss to the Dolphins.

Clay made a nice leaping 18-yard catch, but that was about it for him. He's been banged up all season and hasn't established himself as anything more than a TE2 ahead of a Week 8 date with the Patriots.
Oct 23 - 6:10 PM

Charles Clay (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

This has been Clay's routine all season. With Robert Woods (foot) looking likely to sit, Clay could be in for a few more targets against the Dolphins.
