Bills beat writer Joe Buscaglia believes it’s “likely” WR Cole Beasley returns to Buffalo next season. Buscaglia even believes Beasley could return “to a more prominent role.” Beasley caught 82 balls for the 2nd straight season but scored just once and notched a laughable 8.5 YPC. The veteran has 1 year left on his deal, although Buffalo can save ~$6 million with his release. Said GM Brandon Beane: “I didn’t sit down with Cole at the end [of the season] and see where he was at and things like that, but yeah, I would anticipate Cole being back.” With Emmanuel Sanders and Isaiah McKenzie slated for free agency, look for Buffalo to add some young talent to this position.

The Bills have activated WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis from the COVID list, taking advantage of the altered league protocol. They'll get a high-ceiling matchup with the Falcons on Sunday but also face plenty of target competition. We'd bet on Beasley reclaiming his slot gig. Davis will have to deal with Emmanuel Sanders, who returned last Sunday after missing Week 15.

The Bills on Tuesday placed WR Cole Beasley on the COVID list. Beasley, of course, was vocally opposed to getting vaccinated over the summer, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport has confirmed that Beasley will miss at least 10 days. So he's out for Sunday's game at New England. Isaiah McKenzie will likely take over his role in the slot.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He was in the same position last week before playing just 9 snaps in the win over the Jets, presumably because of that rib injury. Beasley can’t be trusted in Week 11 fantasy lineups.

Patriots WR Cole Beasley (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He figures to play vs. the Colts this weekend but can't be trusted in fantasy lineups after playing just 9 snaps last week.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. He wound up playing just 9 snaps last week, presumably because of this rib injury. Beasley can't be trusted in fantasy lineups until we see him back in a full-time role.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) is not listed on the final injury report. He didn’t play much in the 4th quarter last week and was sidelined on Wednesday. But he got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is evidently good to go for this weekend’s plus matchup vs. the Jets.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He should be available for this weekend's game vs. the Jets, but check back tomorrow for another update.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. He suited up with this injury last weekend but barely played in the 4th quarter of the loss to Jacksonville. So he's not a lock to be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Check back tomorrow for another update.

11:30am EST 11/7/21

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we never sensed concern about his Week 9 status. Beasley is a WR3 with upside in today’s plus matchup.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Jaguars. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we haven't sensed concern about his Week 9 status. We'll get Buffalo's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Bills TE Dawson Knox had surgery on his broken hand and is expected to miss 3 weeks, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Knox has a Week 7 bye, meaning that he should just miss the next 2 games vs. Miami and Jacksonville and return for Week 10. TE Tommy Sweeney is next up on Buffalo's depth chart but is unlikely to be a fantasy factor. WRs Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley should pick up extra targets with Knox out.

The Bills on Friday activated WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis from the COVID list. That comes less than a week after each player got deactivated, which means neither tested positive at all.

Bills WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis have been placed on the COVID list as close contacts to a staff member who tested positive for the virus. Beasley and Davis, of course, are unvaccinated so must stay away from the team for 5 days. This particular instance won't impact their 2021 campaigns -- but both guys come with elevated risk because they're unvaccinated.

The Bills “aren’t giving up on Dawson Knox,” per Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic. “Dawson, going into Year 3, we have big expectations for him,” GM Brandon Beane said. “It’s a big offseason for him. He’s already told us that he plans to link up with Josh (Allen) out in California, which will be good for those guys to continue to get more reps.” Drops (13 on 94 career targets) have been Knox’s biggest issue thus far. Buffalo has yet to sign an impact free-agent, though, instead adding former Seahawk Jacob Hollister. If the depth chart remains favorable, Knox should have some streaming value in 2021. Just keep in mind that Buffalo ranked 2nd league-wide last year in percentage of 4-WR sets. With Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders and Gabe Davis, the position remains one of strength.

Bills WR Cole Beasley revealed that he broke his fibula in Week 16. He sat out the regular-season finale but returned for the playoffs, catching 7 of 11 targets in 2 games. “Take a few meds and suck it up," Beasley said. “There was no way I was gonna miss a playoff game.” It's unclear if he'll need surgery, but the injury shouldn't impact his 2021. Beasley has posted 67-778-6 and 82-967-4 lines in 2 years with the Bills, finishing 34th and then 27th among WRs in PPR points. He'll probably be undervalued again in 2021 fantasy drafts.

Bills WRs Stefon Diggs (oblique) and Cole Beasley (knee) are active for today's game against the Colts. Diggs was expected to play, but Beasley had been genuinely questionable. He carries attractive upside against an Indy defense that tends to funnel action to the middle in the passing game. Of course, he also carries some risk of re-injury or playing limited snaps. Keep both aspects in mind as you set your lineups for the Wild Card round.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs is "a go" for Saturday's playoff opener against the Colts, despite his oblique injury, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Expect to have Diggs available for fantasy lineups. Teammate Cole Beasley (knee) is also "confident" he'll be able to play through the knee issue that cost him Week 17. Garafolo reports, though, that the Bills will need to assess his condition before the game Saturday to determine his availability. Beasley figures to be a risky fantasy option even if he plays. We'll confirm the status on both wideouts when the inactives come out around 11:30 a.m. ET.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's Wild Card game vs. the Colts after returning to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll get his game status by noon ET on Saturday, but Beasley will be operating at less than 100% if active.

Bills WR Cole Beasley (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. He's considered week to week and is looking iffy for Saturday's game against the Colts. Buffalo at least got WR John Brown back last week and would also have WRs Gabriel Davis and Isaiah McKenzie behind Stefon Diggs this weekend
