Buffalo Bills Fantasy Football News 2017

After trading down from 10th overall, the Bills drafted LSU CB Tre'Davious White. He should find an immediate shot to replace CB Stephon Gilmore, who signed with the Patriots in free agency. White picked 6 passes across 4 years, with no more than 2 in any season. He defensed a career-high 14 passes as a senior. White also delivered punt-return TDs in each of the past 3 seasons. Should he start, playing across from CB Ronald Darby might help direct throws to his side of the field. There's fantasy upside here if he starts.

The Bills have hired Rick Dennison as OC. Dennison spent the past 2 years as Denver's OC under Gary Kubiak -- and also coordinated Kubiak's Texans offenses from 2010 to 2013. It's notable that Dennison worked with Tyrod Taylor as Baltimore's QB coach in 2014. We'll see if Taylor is Dennison's QB in Buffalo in 2017 and beyond.

The Bills have hired Sean McDermott as their HC. He's spent the past 8 seasons as a defensive coordinator -- 1st in Philadelphia, then in Carolina -- but has no HC experience. McDermott and the Bills should make an OC hire within the next couple of weeks.

Bills DE Kyle Williams (back) and LBs Preston Brown (foot) and Zach Brown (illness) are active for today's game against the Jets. All 3 entered the day questionable but are good to go in your IDP lineups.

The Bills have fired HC Rex Ryan and DC Rob Ryan. The news is only surprising in that it came before this weekend's season finale. Ryan finishes his 2-year Bills tenure with a 15-16 record. OC Anthony Lynn will take over as interim HC and reportedly has a shot to earn the full-time gig next season.

Bills LB Preston Brown (foot) and DE Kyle Williams (back) are both active for today's game against the Dolphins. Each is OK to use at his normal level in IDP lineups. Williams carries significant upside for DL slots. The Bills team D also carries upside at home against Matt Moore and a stuttering Miami run game.

Bills LB Preston Brown (foot) and DE Kyle Williams (back) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Both put in limited practices Thursday and Friday. Williams played through a questionable tag last week. We'll check on their statuses Saturday.

Bills DT Kyle Williams (back) and LB Zach Brown (ankle) are active for today's game against the Browns. Both should be fine to toss into IDP lineups in an upside matchup.
