Bills QB Josh Allen said Monday that he's not expected to have surgery on the UCL injury he suffered in his right elbow on November 6. He also told reporters that he didn't feel like he had his usual throwing mechanics until 2 weeks ago. Allen's numbers certainly suggest that the elbow was an issue. In his first 8 games, including the 1 in which he hurt the elbow late, he posted a 64.1% completion rate, 8.1 yards per attempt and 19 TDs vs. 8 INTs. Over his final 10 games, including the playoffs, he registered a 61.7% completion rate, 7.1 yards per attempt and 19 TDs vs. 9 INTs. We'll keep an eye on Allen's status throughout the offseason, but he should tentatively expected to be 100% for the 2023 campaign.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 25 of 42 passes for 265 yards and 1 INT in Sunday’s loss vs. Cincinnati. His pick came late in the 4th with the game already wrapped up. The Bengals mustered only 1 sack, but steady pressure — and snowy conditions — made life tough for Allen. Allen did pop in a rushing score, his 8th of the season. Buffalo should now shift its focus to upgrading the pass catchers and the OL.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) logged full practice participation all week and doesn't carry an official injury designation for Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bengals. The veteran wideout missed last week's Wild Card matchup vs. the Dolphins due to this injury. McKenzie primarily runs routes out of the slot and will likely draw coverage from Bengals CB Mike Hilton. Hilton only has 4 games this season in which he's allowed more than 50 receiving yards to opposing WRs.

Bills Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) practiced fully again on Thursday ahead of Sunday's Divisional Round game vs. the Bengals. It seems the veteran wideout is on track to play barring any potential major setback. We'll keep an eye out for updates tomorrow regarding a final word on McKenzie's availability.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) practiced fully on Wednesday in advance of Sunday's Divisional Round matchup vs. the Bengals. This is great news considering McKenzie was inactive for the team's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins due to this injury. We'll see if this trend continues as the week unfolds. Be sure to check back for updates tomorrow.

Bills RB James Cook tallied 12 carries for 39 yards and 1 score in Sunday’s win over Miami. He out-carried Devin Singletary by 2, although neither guy saw a target on 39 Josh Allen attempts. It was Cook who found the end zone in the 1st quarter, though. The explosive rookie will look for more next weekend, likely against the Bengals. Cincy exited the regular season 6th toughest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs.

Bills QB Josh Allen put up a monster 352-3-2 passing line in a Wild Card win over Miami. We wouldn’t put either INT on Allen, although he was to blame for a lost fumble in the pocket. Credit Miami for only allowing 20 rushing yards on 4 Allen runs. As a passer, though, Allen’s rare arm talent showed up in several key spots. His scores went to Gabe Davis, Cole Beasley and Dawson Knox. Allen will likely face the Bengals — at home — next weekend.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs popped off for 7 catches for 114 yards against Miami. He tied Gabe Davis for the team lead in targets (9). The highlight here was a beautifully thrown Josh Allen deep ball for 52 yards — the duo’s 2nd longest gain of this season. Diggs will likely face the Bengals in the Divisional Round. It would be the first showdown between Buffalo and Cincinnati this season.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) is inactive for today's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. That leaves WRs Cole Beasley, Khalil Shakir and John Brown behind Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis. Beasley is the most natural fill-in for McKenzie's slot role.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) didn't practice again on Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. Should McKenzie miss this contest, WRs Cole Beasley and Khalil Shakir could see a bump in opportunity running slot routes. The Dolphins' primary slot CB Kader Kohou has allowed 50+ yards to opposing WRs in 3 of the team's last 5 contests. Something to consider for fantasy managers participating in playoff contests/formats.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) was downgraded to missing practice on Thursday after logging limited participation the day before. It'll be interesting to see if McKenzie can ramp up activity Friday or else he may be in danger of missing Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. Should he sit, WRs Khalil Shakir and Cole Beasley could see a boost in responsibility running out of the slot. We'll keep everyone posted as more information becomes available.

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie (hamstring) was listed as limited in practice on Wednesday. There's still ample time for the veteran to ramp up activity ahead of Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Dolphins. We'll keep tabs on McKenzie as this week marches on.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (hip) practiced fully on Friday and doesn't appear on the team's final injury report ahead of Week 18 vs. the Patriots. Though Knox put up a zero in a Week 13 last time these teams faced off, the Pats' defense has allowed 10 TE scores this season, tied for 2nd-most in the NFL. We feel Knox is a mid-TE2/streaming consideration in fantasy lineups this weekend.

Bills QB Josh Allen (ankle, right elbow) upgraded to full practice again on Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Week 18 vs. the Patriots. With AFC playoff seeding still being a factor in this game, it stands to reason that Allen and all other key starters will play the full compliment of snaps. Fire up Allen as a no-doubt QB1, per usual.

The NFL announced that the Bills-Bengals game will not be rescheduled. It's officially a no-contest and players do not receive any stats for the game. Commissioner Roger Goodell is also recommending that the AFC Championship Game be played at a neutral site if the Bills or Bengals make it there as the road team. All 32 teams will vote on that proposal on Friday.

Update: The NFL owners have approved these changes to the playoff setup.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (hip) practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday ahead of Week 18 vs. the Patriots. We'll have a better picture of his health on Friday. Be sure to check back tomorrow for updates.

Bills QB Josh Allen (ankle, elbow) was downgraded to a limited practice on Thursday after logging full participation the day before. There's no need for alarm at this time as it relates to his availability for Week 18 vs. the Patriots. Allen has been beaten up all season and has yet to miss a game. We'll keep an eye on him in case anything changes on this front.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (hip) practiced fully on Wednesday. We'll keep an eye on him just in case. Starting the practice week in full bodes well for his chances to play in Week 18 vs. the Patriots.

Bills QB Josh Allen (ankle, elbow) practiced fully on Wednesday. The 2-time Pro Bowler has played in every game this season despite his nagging ailments. We'll keep track of his health in case anything changes, but we feel good about his chances of playing in Week 18 vs. the Patriots.

The NFL announced Tuesday that it won't resume the Bills-Bengals game -- halted by S Damar Hamlin's collapse -- this week. The league added that it will keep the Week 18 schedule intact and that no decision has yet been made on how to treat Monday night's game going forward. That means fantasy football leagues and contest providers will either have to wait for further word on the resumption of that contest or figure out alternate solutions. We'll certainly be watching for updates on that front -- as well as, of course, any updates on Hamlin's condition.
