Bills special teamer Marcus Easley (knee) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Easley sprained his MCL in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. He already had four solo tackles in kick coverage this season.
Sep 22 - 11:00 AM

Mike Williams caught two passes for 11 yards against the Chargers.

He only has 10 targets through three games. He can be safely ignored in all formats.
Sep 21 - 5:27 PM

Robert Woods caught three passes for 19 yards against the Chargers.

Woods was a victim of E.J. Manuel's inability to throw accurately downfield. Woods now has 8 catches for 102 yards through three games this season. He can be avoided in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Sep 21 - 5:25 PM

Scott Chandler caught all five of his targets for 74 yards against the Chargers.

Chandler benefited from E.J. Manuel's inability to throw the ball accurately downfield. Despite the big day, he can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sep 21 - 5:21 PM

Sammy Watkins caught only two-of-eight targets for 19 yards against the Chargers.

E.J. Manuel's inaccuracy played the biggest part in Watkins' inefficient day, but Watkins gave up on at least one route as well. Watkins' talent is unquestioned, but he will be an inconsistent fantasy player as long as Manuel is under center. Watkins will be an upside WR3 against the Texans next week.
Sep 21 - 5:12 PM

C.J. Spiller rushed 10 times for 25 yards and caught 3 passes for 37 yards against the Chargers.

Spiller had a long-run called back early in the game, but struggled to find running room all day. The Bills insist on using Spiller as a between-the-tackles runner instead of getting him involved in space. As long as that continues, Spiller will remain nothing more than a high-upside RB2/FLEX.
Sep 21 - 5:05 PM

Fred Jackson rushed six times for 34 yards and caught 8 passes for 78 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers.

Jackson scored a hard-nosed 11-yard touchdown on a screen pass in the third quarter. It was Buffalo's only touchdown of the day. Jackson is still in a timeshare with C.J. Spiller, but he is clearly the preferred passing-down and short-yardage back. Jackson will be an RB2/FLEX Week 4 against the Texans.
Sep 21 - 5:02 PM

E.J. Manuel completed 23-of-39 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown against the Chargers Week 3.

Manuel added 24 yards on the ground. The stat line does not look terrible, but it was inflated by 81 yards on a meaningless final drive. Manuel was his normal inaccurate self against the Chargers, going 7-of-21 on passes thrown at wide receivers. He also made several mental mistakes, including an intentional grounding penalty in the end zone that cost the Bills a safety. The Bills want to keep Manuel in a game-manager role, but his legs will keep him an interesting QB2 in deeper formats.
Sep 21 - 4:56 PM

FS Aaron Williams briefly exited the Bills' Week 3 game against the Chargers with a leg contusion, but returned to the game.

With Da'Norris Searcy out, The Bills need Williams.
Sep 21 - 3:30 PM

SS Da'Norris Searcy was forced from the Bills' Week 3 game with an ankle injury.

He limped to the locker room in the third quarter. His return is questionable.
Sep 21 - 3:07 PM

WR/KR Marcus Easley left the Bills' Week 3 game against the Chargers with a knee injury.

Easley's lower leg was caught underneath a tackler on a kick return in the third quarter. He needed help getting off the field. His is officially questionable, but he is likely out for the game.
Sep 21 - 2:58 PM

G Chris Williams left the Bills' Week 3 game against the Chargers with a back injury.

Williams dealt with the back injury all week in practice. He is out for the rest of the game. Kraig Urbik is playing in his place.
Sep 21 - 1:54 PM

Bills declared RB Bryce Brown, LB Keith Rivers, CB Ross Cockrell, LB Randell Johnson, TE Chris Gragg, OG Cyril Richardson and OT Cyrus Kouandjio inactive for Week 3 against the Chargers.

This is the third game in a row Brown has been a healthy scratch. Anthony Dixon will be the No. 3 back for Buffalo. Keith Rivers is week-to-week with a groin injury. Rookie Preston Brown will start in his place.
Sep 21 - 11:50 AM

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.
