The Bills moved up 2 spots in the 1st round of the NFL Draft to select CB Kaiir Elam from Florida. Elam stands 6'2 and ran a 4.39-second 40 at the Combine. He defensed 20 passes across 3 seasons with the Gators -- just 2 of those as a full-time starter. He should fight for a starting job right away in Buffalo.

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.

According to The Athletic's Zak Keefer, Colts HC Frank Reich said from the NFL owners' meetings that he expects a "MUCH bigger role" for RB Nyheim Hines this season with QB Matt Ryan. Hines saw a career-low 3.4 targets per game with Carson Wentz under center last year. Wentz has historically targeted his RBs at a below-average rate. Reich expects Hines' role to be akin to what he did with QB Philip Rivers back in 2020, when he averaged 4.8 targets per game. Hitting that number might be tough behind RB Jonathan Taylor, although the Colts are currently thin at WR. Hines is still just a later-round pick in early PPR best-ball drafts right now.

WR Jamison Crowder has inked a 1-year deal with the Bills worth "up to" $4 million, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Crowder is coming off a disappointing 2021 season, averaging a career-low 8.8 yards on 51 catches across 12 games for the Jets. But he'll turn just 29 in June and averaged 4.9 catches and 54.4 yards per game between 2019 and 2020. Crowder looks like a natural replacement in Buffalo for Cole Beasley, who finished 34th, 27th and 41st among WRs in PPR points the last 3 seasons.

The Bills are signing EDGE Von Miller to a 6-year deal, according to multiple reports. We'd bet against the 33-year-old (as of March 26) defender playing out that whole contract, but the reported $51.5 million guaranteed makes it sound like 3 years would be a solid bet. Most importantly, of course, Buffalo gains the best pass-rusher it will have had in HC Sean McDermott's stint. Miller racked up 82 total pressures last season, 5th most among all edge defenders, according to Pro Football Focus. He leaves behind a void for a Rams team lacking a 1st-round draft pick. Landing in Buffalo should also give Miller DE eligibility (perhaps for the 1st time ever in many fantasy football leagues). If that happens, it'll boost his IDP value.

The Bills on Sunday announced that they’ve re-signed WR Isaiah McKenzie on 2-year, $8 million deal. McKenzie caught just 20 passes last year and has yet to top 30 receptions in a season. But he carries upside well beyond that if he can wrest the primary slot job from Cole Beasley, a rumored cut candidate

The Bills have reached a 1-year deal to retain WR Jake Kumerow, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Kumerow has caught just 3 total passes while appearing in 21 games for Buffalo over the past 2 years. So he's a long way from fantasy relevance.

Beat writer Joe Buscagila of The Athletic believes the Bills “should” spend a “Day 2 or early Day 3 pick” on a RB. Buscagila points out that the current Bills staff has typically favored a 1-2 punch. Zack Moss took a step back after a promising rookie year. Devin Singletary, meanwhile, impressed with career highs in yards, TDs and receptions. He enters the offseason as Buffalo's clear lead back -- just note that he enters the final year of his rookie deal. GM Brandon Beane also spoke this offseason about adding more speed to the offense, and such a move could come in the form of a new RB. “I’m always looking for speed,” Beane said in January. “You’d love to have a (run after catch) guy that you can get the ball to and he can turn a five-yard pass into a 60-yard touchdown. We talked about speed here. You can never have enough of that. So we’ll continue to look for various ways.”

The Bills have promoted QBs coach Ken Dorsey to OC. The Giants reportedly made a run to reunite Dorsey with new HC Brian Daboll, but Dorsey will instead stay with QB Josh Allen in Buffalo. Dorsey has been with the Bills since 2019. He has no OC experience at any level -- but at least there will be some continuity with the Bills offense.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder aggravated his calf injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bills and is done for the day.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. WR Braxton Berrios (quad) was sidelined. We'll see which of these slot receivers is able to play vs. the Bills this weekend.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bucs. Braxton Berrios gets another game as New York’s primary slot receiver but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Bucs. Braxton Berrios figures to get another game as New York’s primary slot receiver but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) remained sidelined on Wednesday. That doesn't bode well for his chances of returning for this weekend's game vs. the Bucs. With Crowder out last week, Braxton Berrios operated as New York's primary slot receiver, posting a 5-37 line on 6 targets.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. That leaves Braxton Berrios as New York’s slot receiver – and a desperation play in PPR leagues.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. Crowder’s absence will leave Braxton Berrios as New York’s slot receiver – and a desperation play in PPR leagues.

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.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder (calf) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He appears to be in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. Crowder's absence would make Braxton Berrios the Jets' primary slot receiver -- and a desperation option in PPR leagues.

Jets WR Jamison Crowder missed Wednesday's practice with a calf issue. He seemed to make it out of last week's loss to the Dolphins fine, but we'll keep an eye on Crowder's status over the next few days.

The Rams have activated EDGE Von Miller from the COVID list ahead of tonight's game against the Seahawks.
