Robert Woods (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury for Woods, who played 47-of-59 snaps last week. His status will be updated again on Thursday.
Sep 17 - 2:49 PM

Robert Woods had one catch for five yards in Week 2 against the Dolphins.

Woods started over Mike Williams, but was a non-factor after leading the Bills in receiving last week. He saw just three targets, with Sammy Watkins serving as the Bills entire pass offense. Woods can be dropped in fantasy leagues for higher upside options.
Sep 14 - 6:19 PM

Robert Woods played on 52-of-57 snaps in Sunday's win over the Bears.

Watkins clearly ran ahead of No. 3 WR Mike Williams (30 snaps), out-targeting him 6-3. The quick-footed second-year receiver doesn't have a ton of upside as the No. 2 target for E.J. Manuel in a run-heavy scheme, but he's on the WR4/5 radar now.
Sep 9 - 8:11 AM

Robert Woods caught four passes for 78 yards in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Bears.

Woods started over Mike Williams, and moved to the slot in three-wide sets. He was clearly E.J. Manuel's No. 1 option, finishing with a team-high six targets. Woods also had Buffalo's biggest play in the pass game with a 32-yard catch in the first quarter. Now that he's playing ahead of Williams, Woods is worth a look on the waivers as a WR4/5.
Sep 7 - 5:36 PM

Robert Woods had two catches for 39 yards in Saturday's preseason game.

Woods started in two-wide sets with Sammy Watkins inactive. He was targeted five times in the pass game, and finished with at least 30 yards receiving for the fourth straight week. Despite early competition from Chris Hogan, Woods should be locked in Buffalo's three-receiver sets. Woods is a WR5/6.
Aug 23 - 8:58 PM calls Robert Woods the MVP of training camp.

Woods ran with the twos in the Bills' first two preseason games before being elevated to the first team in Sammy Watkins' absence last weekend. He'll open the season behind Watkins and Mike Williams on the depth chart, but is going to get plenty of run in three-receiver sets. He's a WR5/6 for fantasy purposes.
Aug 21 - 6:47 PM

Robert Woods had three catches for 49 yards in Saturday night's preseason game against the Steelers.

With Sammy Watkins out, Woods worked with the starters after playing with the second team in the first two exhibition games. He was targeted six times, and showed good YAC ability on a 30-yard pass from E.J. Manuel in the second quarter. Chris Hogan also rotated with the first team, but finished with no catches on two targets. There isn't much more Woods can do to prove he belongs in the Bills' three-wide sets. Woods has at least 30 yards receiving in all three of Buffalo's preseason games.
Aug 16 - 10:09 PM

Robert Woods had four catches for 31 yards in Buffalo's second preseason game.

Woods continues to work with the second-team, but saw time with the starters on Buffalo's second offensive series. He's currently behind Mike Williams for the No. 2 role and is competing with Chris Hogan in the slot. Williams is a superior blocker to Woods and is unlikely to come off the field in base sets. It would be shocking if Woods didn't open the year as one of Buffalo's top three receivers.
Aug 9 - 12:15 AM

Coach Doug Marrone said he wants to see second-year WR Robert Woods play "more with a chip on his shoulder."

Woods interestingly played strictly with the backups in Sunday's Hall of Fame game. He was behind Mike Williams opposite Sammy Watkins. Chris Hogan then got reps with the starting offense out of the slot at Tuesday's practice, where Woods mixed in with the ones and twos. We expect Woods to be part of Buffalo's three-wide set come the regular season, but the Bills are a run-heavy offense.
Aug 6 - 6:15 PM

E.J. Manuel says he was surprised Robert Woods didn't work with the first-team offense in Sunday night's Hall of Fame game.

Woods did impress with a 4-49-1 line, but he was working with the second-, third-, and even fourth-team groups. "A little bit," said Manuel. "It was a little surprising for Woody not to be with us with the ones, but he did great." Perhaps the Bills will give Woods more first-team reps in their second exhibition game. Mike Williams and Sammy Watkins were the starters on Sunday night.
Aug 4 - 11:29 AM

Robert Woods caught four passes for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Hall of Fame game Sunday night.

The stats look decent for a preseason game, but Woods ran with the Jeff Tuel and Thad Lewis backup offenses. He beat Jayron Hosley for a red-zone score; Hosley is on the roster bubble in New York. Unless he suddenly overtakes Mike Williams, it will be safe to scratch Woods off of fantasy sleeper lists.
Aug 3 - 9:22 PM

Robert Woods was listed as the first-team receiver opposite Sammy Watkins on the Bills' first training camp depth chart.

Mike Williams is directly behind Woods, while Marquise Goodwin is backing up Watkins. Woods hasn't generated much fantasy hype, but qualifies as a sleeper to lead Buffalo in receptions this season. Watkins is talented, but a rookie, and Woods will play the "movement" wideout role in Doug Marrone's offense, running high-percentage routes at Z and slot receiver. He's a sleeper for 70 catches.
Jul 29 - 10:30 AM

Robert Woods (ankle) is participating in this week's OTAs sessions.

Woods has been mostly limited to individual drills, but saw his first action in team drills on Friday. He's three months removed from ankle surgery and aiming to be ready for next month's mandatory minicamp. Woods is expected to start opposite Sammy Watkins this season and play the slot in three-wide sets. He's handling the old Stevie Johnson role for about 1/10th the price.
May 30 - 5:39 PM

Robert Woods (ankle surgery) is aiming to be ready for next month's mandatory minicamp.

Woods went under the knife in February. "I'm actually pretty much full-go, but they just want to stick to the schedule anyway, just to make sure," Woods said Thursday. "They just want to be safe and just keep pushing forward." Translation: Although Woods might be ready for minicamp, the Bills will likely play things safe and hold him out until training camp.
