ESPN's Adam Schefter calls Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) "likely" to start today's game vs. the Vikings. That jibes with NFL Network's Ian Rapoport's Saturday report. "Bills officials spent intensive time this past week leaning on and listening to their doctors and other arm specialists, and the team was reassured that Allen is not at any added risk to make the injury worse if he plays," a source tells Schefter. We'll get Buffalo's inactives around 11:30 am ET, but Allen can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is "in line" to start Sunday's game vs. the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. QB Matt Barkley was not elevated from the practice squad on Saturday, leaving only Allen and QB Case Keenum on the active roster. "Allen is able to grip a football and he did some throwing on Friday. That gave enough confidence to proceed without elevating Matt Barkley from the practice squad," Rapoport adds. Allen certainly carries more risk than usual in Week 10 fantasy lineups, but it'd be tough to bench him unless you for some reason also own Patrick Mahomes or Jalen Hurts. Playing Justin Fields or Tua Tagovailoa over Allen wouldn't be crazy. We just updated our Bills projections.

Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings. He put in a limited practice on Friday after missing the previous 2 days. HC Sean McDermott described Allen as "hour-by-hour" on Friday morning, so Allen's status might come down to how that elbow feels on Sunday. We'll continue to look for updates on Allen and will get Buffalo's inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday. QB Case Keenum will start if Allen can't.

Bills QB Josh Allen endured a poor passing performance in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He threw for just 205 yards on 18-of-34 passing (52.9%), taking 5 sacks and flinging 2 INTs. Allen salvaged his fantasy line with 86 yards and 2 TDs rushing, though. That marked his largest rushing total since Week 14 of last season and 6th career game with multiple ground scores. WR Stefon Diggs posted a 5-93 receiving line on 10 targets as the only Bill with more than 33 receiving yards. WR Gabriel Davis hit that total on 2 catches among 5 targets. TE Dawson Knox caught 3 of 4 looks for 25 yards. Allen and his receivers get a softer Vikings defense back home in Week 10.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs posted numbers Sunday night that belied his team's overall passing struggles in the win over Green Bay. He led Buffalo in targets (8), receptions (6) and yards (108), accounting for 46.2% of QB Josh Allen's completions and 49.5% of his yardage. Diggs also snagged 1 of Allen's 2 TD tosses. TE Dawson Knox grabbed the other, for 1 yard out, among 2 catches for 10 yards on 3 targets. WR Gabriel Davis managed only 2 receptions for 35 yards among 7 targets. No other Bill drew more than 2 looks.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs racked up a 10-148-1 receiving line on 13 targets in Sunday's win over the Chiefs. He garnered 32.5% of Josh Allen's pass attempts and accounted for 45% of Buffalo's passing yardage for the game. WR Gabriel Davis finished 2nd on the team with 6 targets, catching 3 balls for 74 yards and a TD (from 34 yards out). TE Dawson Knox snagged the other TD passes, 1 of his 3 catches for 37 yards on 3 targets. WR Isaiah McKenzie and RB Devin Singletary tied for 3rd on the team with 5 targets.

Bills QB Josh Allen racked up 424 passing yards and 4 TDs in Sunday's lopsided home win over the Steelers. He hit WR Gabriel Davis for TDs of 98 and 62 yards. Allen also connected with WR Stefon Diggs and rookie WR Khalil Shakir for scores. Diggs drew 35.5% of Allen's pass attempts for the game as the only Bills player to exceed 6 targets. A potential shootout at Kansas City awaits in Week 6, with Buffalo's bye on the other side.

Bills WR Stefan Diggs racked up a 12-148-3 receiving line in Monday night's beatdown of the Titans, drawing 36.8% of QB Josh Allen's targets. With WR Gabriel Davis out, TE Dawson Knox checked in 2nd in targets (5), receptions (4) and receiving yards (41). FB Reggie Gilliam claimed the remaining of QB Josh Allen's 4 TD tosses.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis (ankle) is not expected to play vs. the Titans tonight, "barring a surprise," according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. "Team has held out hope but playing was considered an uphill battle since Saturday's injury," Fowler tweets. We'll see if Davis can make it back for this coming Sunday's game vs. the Dolphins. His absence figures to mean WR Khalil Shakir's debut, although the rookie is really only an option in DFS. Stefon Diggs, Isaiah McKenzie, Jamison and Dawson Knox are candidates for extra targets with Davis out.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, WR Stefon Diggs said he wants to finish his career in Buffalo. The 28-year-old mentioned how it would be a “dream” to team up with his brother, Cowboys DB Trevon Diggs, but that’s unlikely in the short-term. Stefon, of course, signed an extension in April that keeps him under contract through the 2027 season, so his words match his actions. (Trevon is signed for 2 more seasons.) If the Bill plays out his entire contract, he'll be a 35-year-old free agent.

The Bills and WR Stefon Diggs have agreed to a 4-year, $104 million extension with $70 million guaranteed, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Tyreek Hill is the only WR with more guaranteed money in his contract. This extension tacks on to Diggs' old deal and keeps him under contract with Buffalo through the 2027 season. Diggs will be 34 at that point, so he's basically tied to QB Josh Allen for the rest of his career.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis has been placed on the COVID list. So both Davis and WR Cole Beasley will miss Sunday's pivotal game vs. the Patriots. That leaves Stefon Diggs and Emmanuel Sanders as Buffalo's top 2 WRs, with Isaiah McKenzie likely handling #3 duties. TE Dawson Knox should also play an even bigger role than usual. It's a tough spot for QB Josh Allen against a strong New England defense.

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.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (knee) returned to practice on Sunday. It was a "light practice," per WGR's Sal Capaccio, but Diggs appeared to be moving well. He had missed the previous week and a half, but we never got the vibe that it was a serious issue. We'll continue to keep an eye on Diggs, but he's safe to draft at this point.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs missed his 5th straight practice with a knee injury on Monday. Per The Athletic' Joe Buscaglia, HC Sean McDermott said he expects Diggs to miss more time but isn't worried about his status for the start of the season "at this point." We're not moving Diggs in the rankings right now but will keep a close eye on his status.

The forecast for today's Patriots-Bills game calls for a chance of rain and 20 mph sustained winds with gusts over 30. That certainly puts a damper on the passing games. New England figured to go run-heavy anyway, so the bigger impact is on Josh Allen and Co. We'd also avoid both kickers in this game.

ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports that the Vikings are "leaning heavily" toward resting the "bulk" of their starters in Sunday's game against the Bears. Minnesota is locked into the NFC's #6 seed. Cronin mentions QB Kirk Cousins as 1 starter who isn't expected to play. RB Dalvin Cook (shoulder) is almost certain to be inactive. And we'd bank on WRs Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen getting the day off, too. QB Sean Mannion will get the start for the Vikings, making this an offense to try to avoid in Week 17 fantasy lineups. The Bears DST is a strong play.
