After struggling as a passer in his last three meetings vs. the Jets, Bills QB Josh Allen diced up the division rival in a 32-6 Week 11 win. Allen completed 20 of 32 passes (63%) for 275 yards (8.6 YPA), three TDs, and one INT. It was the second most passing yards and the most passing TDs allowed this season by the Jets, who have also faced QBs Dak Prescott, Patrick Mahomes, Jalen Hurts, and Justin Herbert. Allen's performance was particularly notable considering it was the first under new OC Joe Brady. It's tough to say exactly how big an impact Brady's play-calling had, but it was certainly an encouraging start. Allen gets a much juicier Week 12 matchup against an Eagles defense sitting 30th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs. The Bills then have a Week 13 bye, so Allen owners should start thinking about lining up a one-week fill in.

The Bills have fired OC Ken Dorsey, in the wake of Monday night's loss to the Broncos. Buffalo has proved a bit inconsistent on offense this year but still ranks third in offensive DVOA and third in yards per play. The No. 7 ranking in scoring marks a bit of a drop vs. finishes of second, fifth, and second the past three years. Buffalo now turns to Joe Brady, who has served as QBs coach since last season after a little less than two years as Panthers OC. Brady's Carolina offenses obviously didn't do anything special but were also working with much less at QB and the other skill positions. We'll see about the impact Brady has, but it's tough to either upgrade or downgrade any Bills offensive pieces in fantasy for this move.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid shined as the lone bright spot for Buffalo’s passing game in Week 10, hauling in 5 of 6 targets for 51 receiving yards and a TD vs. the Broncos. The rookie is now averaging 7 catches, 68 receiving yards, and 16.3 PPR points per game over the past four games. At this point, fantasy managers can consider Kincaid a weekly TE1 option regardless of matchup. To make matters better, the Bills’ remaining schedule ranks as the sixth-easiest for TEs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Monday night was an eventful evening for Bills RB James Cook. The second-year back tallied 12 carries for 109 rushing yards in Week 10 vs. the Broncos, the second-highest yardage total he’s recorded in 2023. He unfortunately also fumbled twice in the contest, including a lost ball on the Bills’ first play of the game. He was benched for several series thereafter before returning to the field in the second quarter. Teammate Latavius Murray saw an uptick in involvement as a result (9-68-1). It’s also worth mentioning that Leonard Fournette wasn’t brought up onto the active roster for the second week in a row. This backfield is a bit messy and will only have more complications given that the Bills’ remaining schedule ranks fourth-toughest for RBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Next up on the calendar is an AFC East showdown with the Jets (19th in run defense DVOA).

Bills QB Josh Allen fell flat in Week 10, completing 15 of 26 passes for 172 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs vs. the Broncos. He managed to punch in a rushing TD in the contest, though he also fumbled on Monday. It's important to remember this performance followed three straight top-5 fantasy weeks for Allen. He’s still worth starting every week, but it’ll be interesting to see how he responds in Week 11 vs. the Jets. Last Allen played the Jets in Week 1, the New York defense picked him off thrice. The Jets rank as the second-toughest QB matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Bills LB Terrel Bernard managed to clear the concussion protocol and is active for tonight's game against the Broncos. It's a surprisingly quick turnaround after Bernard suffered his injury in last Sunday night's loss at Cincinnati. But that should keep him as Buffalo's lead LB for the game and render Tyrel Dodson a part-timer.

Bills LB Terrel Bernard is officially questionable for Monday night's game against the Broncos. We'd be surprised if he plays, though, eight days after sustaining a concussion in the loss to the Bengals. Bernard didn't advance past limited practice this week and hadn't cleared the protocol as of Saturday. He'd need to do so ahead of the early Sunday games to be a viable IDP option. Assuming Bernard sits, Tyrel Dodson would be the top LB option among Bills. He has ranked highest among Buffalo LBs in our Week 10 rankings. Rookie Dorian Williams will likely run second but isn't a real IDP option.

The Bills have ruled S Micah Hyde (neck, stinger) and CB Christian Benford (hamstring) out for Monday night's game against the Broncos. The latter should mean full playing time for CB Rasul Douglas. The former Packer played 60% of snaps against the Bengals in his first action since arriving at the trade deadline. Taylor Rapp should step into a starter role in Hyde's absence. S Damar Hamlin might also be activated but would still operate as a reserve/special teamer.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs (back) is not listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He was added to the injury report on Friday and limited in practice -- and then was limited again on Saturday. But he's evidently in no danger of missing Monday night's game vs. the Broncos. Diggs should stay locked into fantasy lineups.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs was added to the injury report with a back and limited in practice on Friday. We don't have any other details at this point. The Bills get the Broncos on Monday night, so we'll get their final injury report on Saturday afternoon.

Bills WR Stefon Diggs roped in 6 of 7 targets for 86 yards and a TD in Week 9 vs. the Bengals. His teammate TE Dalton Kincaid also delivered on Sunday with 81 receiving yards on 10 catches. Among 31 TEs who’ve seen at least 20 targets in 2023, Kincaid’s 88.9% catch rate ranks first. This duo will be must-start options in Week 10 vs. the Broncos, a defense that ranks 32nd in pass defense DVOA.

Bills RB James Cook had a tough outing in Week 9 vs. the Bengals. The second-year back racked up just 39 total yards on a combined 10 touches in the contest. Fellow RB Latavius Murray was also minimally impactful, contributing a mere 10 total yards on 3 touches. It’s also notable that recent free agent signee Leonard Fournette was not promoted to the active roster on Sunday. The Bills’ run game has been largely ineffective of late, but there’s reason for fantasy managers to be optimistic moving forward. Buffalo’s remaining schedule ranks 12th-easiest for RB in adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 26 of 38 passes for 258 yards with 1 TD and INT apiece in Week 9 vs. the Bengals. The veteran also added 44 yards and a rushing TD in the contest. Allen has now thrown an INT in five straight games. Still, his strong running floor and high volume passing make his 23.4 points per game the highest among QBs in 2023. Allen is a reliable fantasy starter regardless of matchup. Next week, he’ll face the Broncos.

Bills LB Terrel Bernard left Sunday night's game against the Bengals with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning. LB Tyrel Dodson ran second among Buffalo LBs the previous two weeks and figures to lead playing time at the position while Bernard is out. Most guys have missed at least the following week after suffering concussions this year, so expect to find Dodson among the top 36 LBs in our updated Week 10 rankings. The matchup with Denver has been positive for LB scoring.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out on Wednesday. There’s nothing to suggest that the shoulder will be a factor in Sunday night’s showdown vs. the Bengals.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he'll be good to go for Sunday night's showdown with the Bengals.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. It was initially reported that he'd be limited. Allen spoke to the media afterward and said he wants to "stay ahead" on the shoulder injury and make sure it doesn't become a long-term problem. "Every day it gets so much better," Allen added. "If I had to practice today, absolutely would have. If the game was today, I'm playing in the game." Allen can stay penciled into Week 9 fantasy lineups for now. We'll see if he practices on Thursday.

Bills QB Josh Allen will be limited in Wednesday's practice, HC Sean McDermott said. Allen is "working through" a shoulder injury he suffered in last Thursday night's game vs. the Bucs, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Allen will surely play vs. the Bengals on Sunday night, but this shoulder issue is worth keeping a close eye on.

The Bills are acquiring CB Rasul Douglas from the Packers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Buffalo is sending a third-round pick to Green Bay for Douglas and a fifth-rounder. Expect Douglas to quickly (perhaps immediately) take over the outside spot opposite Christian Benford. That has been Dane Jackson's spot since CB Tre'Davious White went down. According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson sits tied for 56th among all CBs in coverage grade, 100th in passer rating in coverage among 129 CBs who have played at least 100 snaps. Douglas has had trouble sticking, spending time with the Eagles and Panthers before landing with the Packers the past three seasons. He has been a playmaker when on the field, though, including 10 INTs since the start of 2021. Douglas will be intriguing in a Bills offense that has faced the sixth-most pass attempts so far.

Bills TE Dawson Knox will "likely" be placed on IR with his wrist injury that requires surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'd knock Knox out for the next four games. He's droppable in all redraft fantasy leagues. Dalton Kincaid has a good chance at TE1 production for however long Knox is sidelined.
