Shark Bites

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He played just 61% of the offensive snaps last Sunday and was limited in practice all this week. Benjamin is a shaky Week 15 fantasy play.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins after a limited week of practice. We’ll find out his status by noon ET, but Benjamin can’t be trusted in fantasy lineups after being unable to make it through last week’s game.

Bills HC Sean McDermott on Friday named QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) his stater for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. He put in a full week of practice, although it's still possible his rushing ability is a bit limited by that knee injury. That -- plus the fact that Taylor has busted in 2 of his last 3 starts -- makes him tough to trust as more than a QB2. His return is good news for Buffalo's skill-position guys.

Bills WR Jordan Matthews announced Tuesday that he underwent knee and ankle surgeries. He's dealt with knee tendonitis for the better part of the past 2 years and missed 2 games with an ankle injury last season -- although it's unclear if the surgeries are related to either. Regardless, Matthews has had all sorts of trouble staying healthy, also fracturing his sternum and breaking his thumb this year. He's set to hit free agency in March.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly puts him on track to play against the Dolphins this weekend. Taylor would be tough to trust outside of 2-QB leagues, but his return is good news for Buffalo's skill-position guys.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) did "most" of practice on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. We'll see whether Buffalo lists him as "limited" or "full." QB Nathan Peterman, meanwhile, remains in the concussion protocol but put in a limited practice on Wednesday. That gives him a chance to be cleared ahead of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. McDermott reiterated on Wednesday, though, that Taylor remains his starter when healthy.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He re-aggravated his knee injury last weekend, but the fact that he's on the field early in the week gives him a shot to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. He'd be no better than a low-end WR3 for that one.

Bills QB Nathan Peterman sustained a concussion in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts. QB Joe Webb will finish out the game for Buffalo with QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) inactive.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin re-injured his knee in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts. He posted a 3-38-1 line on 7 targets before exiting. We'll look for an update on Benjamin after the Snow Bowl.

Update: Benjamin returned late in the 4th quarter for a play but then hobbled off again.

Bills DT Kyle Williams (groin) is active for today's game against the Colts after entering the day questionable. He's an upside D-line option in IDP leagues in a nice matchup. Buffalo will also have top CB Tre'Davious White, who was able to clear the concussion protocol this week after last Sunday's vicious cheap shot from Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. Slot CB Leonard Johnson (knee), however, is inactive.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Colts. QB Nathan Peterman gets the start but can’t be trusted in any fantasy format after his 5-INT debacle in his 1st start.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Bills QB Nathan Peterman is likely to start against the Colts today. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Friday that QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) could still be active but serve as Peterman's backup for the game. Avoid the position altogether in fantasy this week if you can. A 2nd Peterman start makes the Colts D a fantasy option.

Bills DT Kyle Williams (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts. According to the AP, coaches expect Williams to play. He carries IDP upside against a struggling O-line that will be without C Ryan Kelly.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) isn't listed on the final injury report after practicing all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. So it doesn’t look like that knee will be an issue. But we'd still have trouble trusting Benjamin in Week 14 fantasy lineups, especially if it’s Nathan Peterman under center.

Bills HC Sean McDermott labeled QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) a game-time decision for this weekend's meeting with the Colts. He added that Taylor could be active but back up QB Nathan Peterman. Taylor was officially limited in both Thursday and Friday's practices. We'll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but he'd be tough to trust outside of 2-QB leagues at less than 100%. Peterman, of course, wouldn't be an option in any fantasy format.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's still considered "day-to-day," according to HC Sean McDermott, and remains uncertain for this weekend's game against the Colts. McDermott added that QB Nathan Peterman will start that one if Taylor can't go.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He reportedly avoided a serious injury but is no better than 50/50 to play against the Colts this weekend. Buffalo would likely turn back to QB Nathan Peterman in Taylor's absence, although Peterman reportedly split practice reps with Joe Webb on Wednesday.

The Bills have placed WR Jordan Matthews on IR with a knee injury, ending his 2017 season. It's unclear if Matthews suffered the injury last week or if it's something he's been dealing with. He has a history of knee tendonitis. The move ends a disappointing campaign that saw Matthews muster just 25 catches, 282 yards and 1 score in 10 appearances. He'll hit free agency in March, and getting out of Buffalo would be his best move. He's still only 25 and racked up 225 catches over his first 3 NFL seasons.

Bills HC Sean McDermott said WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) "looks good" to play against the Colts this weekend. We'll see. The team has been over-optimistic about Benjamin's status all along. He won't be more than a WR4 in a struggling passing game if he suits up.

Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has been diagnosed with a patellar tendon contusion and is considered "day-to-day," HC Sean McDermott said Monday. McDermott added that Taylor remains his team's starter when healthy. We'll track his status throughout the week, but Taylor would be tough to trust in Week 14 fantasy lineups -- even in a plus matchup against the Colts.
