C.J. Spiller (collarbone) is listed as probable for Week 16 against the Raiders.

It's unclear what Spiller's role will be in his return from I.R./recall due to a broken collarbone. Fred Jackson has been handling the vast majority of the work in the Buffalo backfield of late. Spiller can't be trusted in fantasy lineups during title week, even against a Raiders defense that gets gashed by running backs via the pass. Oakland has surrendered eight receiving touchdowns to running backs.

The Bills have yet to decide if C.J. Spiller (collarbone) will be active for Week 16.

"I think he looks good," coach Doug Marrone said Thursday. "It's just a matter of waiting until the end of the week and make a move there." Marrone went on to say Spiller has looked "explosive," and is "moving well." Spiller will change the pace for Fred Jackson if he's active against the Raiders.

C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) took his pads off halfway through Wednesday's practice.

"Yeah, I was just getting used to" wearing them "again," Spiller said. "It's been two months since I've had them on so I just wanted to see what it felt like to put them back." It's a reminder that he can't be counted on for a major role in Sunday's game at Oakland after not taking any contact since Week 7.

C.J. Spiller (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Spiller was activated from I.R./recall, but isn't a lock to return this week. He won't be more than a boom-or-bust FLEX option if he plays against Oakland.

Bills activated RB C.J. Spiller (broken collarbone) from injured reserve/designated to return.

According to coach Doug Marrone, Spiller's "readiness" for Week 16 will be gauged in practice. The Bills' running game really hasn't missed a beat in Spiller's absence, so it's unlikely Marrone will force him back into the lineup if he doesn't believe he's ready. If Spiller does go, he'll be a dart throw FLEX option against the Raiders' pathetic defense.

Sammy Watkins managed one catch for 28 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

He was targeted six times. Watkins has been held under 40 yards in five of his last six games. He hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 8. Watkins will be a boom-or-bust WR3 when the Bills travel to The Black Hole for Week 16.
Dec 14 - 5:01 PM

Chris Hogan secured 1-of-2 targets for six yards in the Bills' Week 15 upset of the Packers.

Hogan is a role-playing slot receiver battling the likes of Scott Chandler and Buffalo's running backs for targets on a weekly basis.
Dec 14 - 4:58 PM

Bryce Brown rushed four times for 20 yards and caught a 40-yard pass in the Bills' Week 15 win over Green Bay.

On a day where Kyle Orton completed just 14 passes, Brown actually led Buffalo in receiving yards on one catch, which came on a blown coverage. He was lined up at wide receiver and left wide open for the big gain. Brown is underutilized as a change-of-pace back behind Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon. He has no fantasy value entering a Week 16 date with the Raiders.
Dec 14 - 4:53 PM

Robert Woods secured 2-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

Woods made an impressive sideline catch for 18 yards in the second quarter. Unfortunately, his only other reception went for a gain of four as Kyle Orton needed just 14 completions for Buffalo to upset Green Bay. Woods is best treated as a fantasy WR4 entering a Week 16 date with the Raiders.
Dec 14 - 4:51 PM

Anthony Dixon rushed six times for 26 yards and caught a five-yard pass in the Bills' Week 15 win over Green Bay.

Dixon gave Buffalo some chain-moving runs off the bench, but finished with just the seven touches to Fred Jackson's 23. He's a breather back in the Bills' offense, ahead of Bryce Brown but behind F-Jax on the depth chart.
Dec 14 - 4:47 PM

Fred Jackson rushed 20 times for 71 yards and caught three balls for 27 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

Continuing to be utilized as a workhorse, F-Jax now has 65 touches over his last three games. Anthony Dixon only mixes in for a series here and there, and the Bills don't have any urgency to play Bryce Brown despite his superior big-play ability. Jackson will be a strong RB2 start in Week 16 at Oakland.
Dec 14 - 4:45 PM

Scott Chandler secured 2-of-2 targets for 22 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

He appeared to share time with Lee Smith and MarQueis Gray. Chandler has had a couple of decent box-score lines this season, but is always nothing more than a desperate TE1 streamer. He'll be a TE2 in Week 16 at Oakland.
Dec 14 - 4:43 PM

Kyle Orton completed 14-of-27 passes for 158 yards and an interception in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Packers.

The Bills' defense and special teams carried them in this one, as Orton continually missed throws that were there and absorbed three sacks. Ideally utilized as a game manager, Orton will only be a two-quarterback-league option when the Bills head to Oakland for Week 16.
Dec 14 - 4:41 PM

Bills declared TE Chris Gragg, DB Da'Norris Searcy, FB Frank Summers, LB Randell Johnson, OT Cyrus Kouandjio, WR Deonte Thompson, and DL Jarius Wynn inactive for Week 15 against the Packers.

There are no surprises on Buffalo's Week 15 inactives list.
Dec 14 - 11:43 AM

Bills WR Mike Williams (calf) passed through waivers unclaimed, and has reverted to injured reserve.

No one was going to claim the unproductive and injured wideout, who is due a staggering $5.2 million guaranteed next season. The Bills will likely cut their losses and release Williams in the offseason despite the cap hit that will come with it. Williams has just 30 catches since the end of the 2012 season.
