Sammy Watkins (ribs) is listed as probable for Week 3.

Watkins has practiced in full the last two weeks, but is still not completely over his rib issue. Coming off a breakout 8/117/1 line, he's an upside WR3 against the Chargers.
Sep 19 - 7:12 PM

Robert Woods (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 3 against the Chargers.

Woods should draw the start opposite Sammy Watkins, but he's unlikely to be much of a factor. There isn't much upside here. Woods is waiver wire fodder in re-draft.
Sep 19 - 1:00 PM

Robert Woods (ankle) is not practicing Thursday.

Woods was limited on Wednesday. It's never good to have downgrades as the week moves along, so we'll consider him questionable for now. Mike Williams is behind Woods for reps in two-wide sets.
Sep 18 - 12:25 PM

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

Sammy Watkins (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 3.

Watkins had to come off the field multiple times in Week 2, but didn't have any setbacks. He's an upside WR3 for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers.
Sep 17 - 2:42 PM

Bills placed S Jonathan Meeks on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

LB Larry Dean will take his roster spot. A second-year fifth rounder, Meeks suffered the injury in training camp. He was bandied about as a potential starter in OTAs, but that talk quickly faded once camp began. Meeks appeared in just eight games as a rookie. He'll be back to compete for one of the Bills' final roster spots in 2015.
Sep 16 - 2:19 PM

Scott Chandler had two catches for 27 yards in Week 2.

They were his only two targets of the game. Chandler isn't getting any red-zone looks and can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sep 14 - 6:39 PM

Mike Williams caught one pass for three yards in Week 2 against Miami.

Williams was the No. 3 receiver again this week, playing behind Robert Woods. He has three catches for 39 yards through two games and isn't on the fantasy radar.
Sep 14 - 6:26 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

Sammy Watkins had eight catches for 117 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 win over Miami.

The Bills got Watkins more involved this week after he was held to three catches in the opener. He was targeted 11 times, and accounted for over half of E.J. Manuel's passing yards. Watkins played at less than 100 percent and is still not completely over his rib issue. He finished the game without any setbacks, but could miss practice time. As the clear No. 1 option in Buffalo's offense, Watkins is a WR3 with upside for Week 3.
Sep 14 - 5:44 PM

Fred Jackson was held to 24 yards on 12 carries in Buffalo's Week 2 win over the Dolphins.

He added two catches for 27 yards. Jackson started, but played fewer snaps than C.J. Spiller. He was the less effective back, though he ended up with more touches. The Bills didn't have any goal-line situations, with their lone offensive touchdown coming on a 12-yard pass to Sammy Watkins. Jackson will be an RB2/FLEX for Week 3 against San Diego.
Sep 14 - 5:25 PM

C.J. Spiller scored on a 102-yard kick return in Sunday's Week 2 win over Miami.

Spiller didn't play on Buffalo's first drive, with Fred Jackson getting the start this week. They both finished with 12 carries. Spiller rushed for 69 yards, adding one catch for nine yards on his lone target. He was held in check by Miami's run defense outside of a 47-yard run. Spiller's pass-game usage continues to be mismanaged. The Bills refuse to use Spiller on screens, where he's a threat to make plays in space. Spiller has touchdowns in two straight games and will remain an RB2 for Week 3 against the Chargers.
Sep 14 - 5:11 PM

E.J. Manuel completed 16-of-26 passes for 202 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 2 win over Miami.

Manuel locked on to Sammy Watkins, targeting him 11 times. His touchdown came on a 12-yard crossing pattern to Watkins in the third quarter. Watkins dropped a 45-yard touchdown or Manuel would of had a bigger game. He was able to manage with the Bills struggling to establish their run game. Buffalo didn't use much zone-read this week, giving Manuel just four carries. Manuel showed good ball placement on his downfield throws and didn't have any turnovers. The Bills have a plus matchup with the Chargers secondary in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 4:37 PM

Bryce Brown is inactive for Week 2 against the Dolphins.

Brown is a healthy scratch for the second straight game. Anthony Dixon will continue to work as Buffalo's No. 3 back after rushing for 60 yards on five carries in Week 1. Brown remains a high-upside stash in deep leagues, but the Bills don't have an early-season role for him with everyone healthy. Buffalo's inactives are TE Lee Smith, RG Cyril Richardson, CB Ross Cockrell, RT Cyrus Kouandjio, S Jonathan Meeks, and LB Keith Rivers.
Sep 14 - 11:46 AM

Bills CB Stephon Gilmore (groin) is listed as probable for Week 2.

Gilmore will return after missing last Sunday's opener with a groin issue. Corey Graham could push Leodis McKelvin for snaps opposite Gilmore in base sets.
