Buffalo Bills Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Bills HC Sean McDermott told reporters Monday that TE Dawson Knox needs wrist surgery. Knox first appeared on the injury report for the issue in Week 6 but has played through it the past two games. McDermott said they don't know yet how long the TE will be out. His absence obviously helps TE Dalton Kincaid's playing time. The rookie drew a season-high 8 targets in Sunday's loss to the Patriots but ran a route on just 63% of Josh Allen dropbacks. We're betting that will increase, which should steady his target counts at least while Knox is out.

Bills RB James Cook received 13 carries for 56 yards in Week 7 vs. the Patriots. He also hauled all 3 targets for 46 yards with a receiving TD as a pass-catcher in Sunday’s loss. Veteran back Latavius Murray produced very little as the sole RB2, posting just 28 total yards on 6 touches. With their Week 8 game vs. the Buccaneers coming on Thursday night, it’ll be interesting to see if Buffalo is inclined to more evenly distribute the workload. Regardless, Cook will be a quality RB2 option for lineups.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 27 of 41 attempts for 265 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT in Sunday’s loss vs. the Patriots. He also added 17 rushing yards and a TD on the ground in the contest. From an objective standpoint, Week 7 was a better showing from the Bills offense than their dysfunctional efforts against the Giants last week. Still, their fourth quarter efforts to battle back weren’t enough to secure the victory. At least Allen’s 24.3 fantasy points were useful for managers. The Bills will play next on Thursday night vs. the Buccaneers.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Patriots. The rookie has averaged 4.3 targets, 3.8 catches, and 25 yards in four full games this season.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. It doesn’t look like that shoulder will be a problem vs. the Patriots on Sunday.

The Bills placed RB Damien Harris (neck, concussion) on IR. He'll miss at least the next four games and can be dropped in most fantasy leagues. RB Latavius Murray should get an uptick in work with Harris sidelined. Harris' absence can't hurt RB James Cook's volume either.

Bills RB Damien Harris (neck, concussion) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. He's averaged 4.4 carries in five healthy games this season. Expect most of that work to go to RB Latavius Murray this weekend, putting him on the RB3 radar.

Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) was upgraded to full participation in Thursday's practice. It's confirmation that he'll be out there for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. And it doesn't look like the shoulder will be an issue.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Bills QB Josh Allen (shoulder) "should be fine" for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. That's been the general sentiment over the past couple of days. Allen was officially limited in practice on Wednesday. We'll see what he does on Thursday and Friday, but he can stay penciled into Week 7 fantasy lineups for now.

Bills TE Dalton Kincaid (concussion) was a full participant in practice on Wednesday. That puts him on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots. The rookie has averaged 4.3 targets, 3.8 catches, and 25 yards in four full games this season.

Bills QB Josh Allen said Wednesday that he has "no concern" about the shoulder injury he suffered in Sunday night's win over the Giants. "We’ll be ready to go," Allen added. "It’s feeling pretty good.” We'll keep an eye on Allen leading up to this weekend's game vs. the Patriots, but he can stay penciled into fantasy lineups.

Bills HC Sean McDermott labeled QB Josh Allen "day-to-day" with his shoulder injury. "He's sore. He's going to be all right," McDermott added. The coach didn't guarantee that Allen will be ready for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots, but it sounds like he's a good bet to play. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Bills RB Damien Harris has a neck sprain "but is otherwise good," a source tells insider Jordan Schultz. It's excellent news after Harris was taken off the field in an ambulance during Sunday night's game vs. the Giants. We'll look for further updates on when Harris might be able to get back on the field. His absence figures to boost RB Latavius Murray's workload.

Bills QB Josh Allen injured his right shoulder in the second quarter of Sunday night's win over the Giants. He wound up missing just one play. Allen said afterward that the shoulder issue didn't impact his throwing and that scans came back "normal." He's scheduled for additional testing on Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We'll keep a close eye on this one, but it seems like Allen will be available for this weekend's game vs. the Patriots.

Bills RB James Cook received 14 carries for 71 yards in Week 6's win vs. the Giants. Surprisingly, the second-year back didn't register a single target or catch in the contest, the first time that's happened in the 2023 season. After Damien Harris left late in the second quarter due to a frightening neck injury, RB Latavius Murray stepped up in spelling Cook and ended Sunday night with 45 rushing yards on 12 carries. It's also worth noting that Murray received 4 red zone carries to Cook's 1 against the Giants. Though the veteran didn't find the end zone, Murray brings some fantasy viability as a decent flex option with TD upside for managers with players on bye weeks. Next week, the Bills will take on the Patriots.

Bills QB Josh Allen completed 19 of 30 attempts for 169 yards with 2 TDs and 1 INT in Sunday night’s narrow victory vs. the Giants. Week 6 was not the strongest showing from the Bills offense as a whole, and the team struggled throughout the contest. It wasn’t until the third quarter that Allen and company successfully executed a score or gained more than 40 yards on a single drive. Week 7 presents a solid opportunity for Allen to get back to his dominant ways against a struggling Patriots defense.

Bills RB Damien Harris was put on a stretcher and taken off the field in an ambulance in the second quarter of Sunday night's game vs. the Giants. He gave a thumbs up prior to loading into the ambulance. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Harris has a neck injury but has movement in his arms and legs, per the NBC broadcast. Harris is headed to the hospital for further testing.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (wrist) is active for tonight's game vs. the Giants. TE Dalton Kincaid (concussion) is inactive. That should mean a boost in pass routes for Knox, making him a passable season-long starter and an intriguing play in one-game DFS contests.

Bills TE Dawson Knox (wrist) is expected to play vs. the Giants tonight, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. No word on TE Dalton Kincaid, who's listed as questionable with a concussion. Kincaid should not be in Week 6 fantasy lineups at this point. And Knox is only worth considering if we hear that Kincaid will not play tonight.

The Bills left Edge Greg Rousseau off the final Week 6 injury report. That means the foot issue that cost him last week's game against the Jaguars shouldn't get in the way for this week's high-upside matchup with the Giants. Rousseau put in a pair of limited practices before going full Friday. He's attractive for IDP lineups this week.
