The Bills selected Iowa DE A.J. Epenesa in the 2nd round of the NFL Draft. Epenesa delivered strong production in college, with 30.5 tackles for loss and 22 sacks over his 2 seasons as a starter -- plus 6 pass deflections and 8 forced fumbles. But then Epenesa went to the Combine and posted a 40 time that would have been unimpressive for a DT. He looks slow on tape as well, winning on power rather than beating tackles around the edge. Epenesa goes to a well-coached defense in Buffalo, though, and might present the versatility to play some DE and DT. Buffalo signed a similar player in free agency: Quinton Jefferson from Seattle. We're not excited about Epenesa's fantasy outlook, but he'll find a place in dynasty rookie drafts.
ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques reports that the Bills have agreed to a 3-year deal with DE Mario Addison. The former Panther will turn 33 at the start of the coming season, but he delivered 9+ sacks each of the past 4 years. He joins a D-line that let Shaq Lawson walk for Miami without much edge-rushing firepower remaining. Carolina, meanwhile, has 2019 rookie Brian Burns ready to seek a larger role in Year 2. Burns' playing time tapered off as his debut season wore on.
Bills DE Shaq Lawson (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Texans. CB Levi Wallace (ankle) is OUT. Both players entered the day questionable. Wallace's absence leaves Buffalo without its starting outside CB opposite Tre'Davious White. That's good news for Houston WR Kenny Stills (with Will Fuller out).
Bills lead CB Tre'Davious White is inactive for today's game against the Jets. He's a healthy scratch, sitting out a game with no meaning for Buffalo. White's absence boosts the matchup for Jets QB Sam Darnold and WR Robby Anderson.
The Bills have ruled DE Shaq Lawson (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Bills DE Jerry Hughes (groin) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He reportedly tweaked an existing groin issue in practice this week but still carries big sack upside into the matchup with Miami. Hughes is worth a shot in IDP lineups in most cases where you're considering him.
Bills DE Jerry Hughes is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. He left Thursday's practice early with a groin injury that then kept him out Friday. "He's day to day," HC Sean McDermott said Friday, according to the team website. "He's had a little bit of (a groin issue) before, but it kind of flared up." We'll check Hughes' status Sunday morning.
Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Milano missed last week's game after putting in limited practices all week. He remained limited throughout this week. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.
Bills LB Matt Milano is inactive for today's game against the Dolphins with a hamstring injury. Maurice Alexander looks like his replacement. Milano's absence could also mean more snaps for strong-side LB Lorenzo Alexander, who carries sleeper appeal as a pass-rusher against Miami.
Bills OLB Matt Milano is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Milano put in only limited practices all week while dealing with a hamstring injury. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
Bills CB Tre'Davious White left Friday night's preseason game in Detroit after injuring his right leg. A cart came to retrieve him, but White made his way off the field without it. He could later be seen icing the leg on the sideline. We'll see how serious the damage is for Buffalo's top corner.
The Bills spent the 9th overall pick in the NFL Draft on DT Ed Oliver. The former Houston DT could fight for a starting job next to Star Lotulelei or at least join a rotation right away. Oliver enjoyed a wildly productive college career, starting with 22 tackles for loss in his freshman season. He tallied another 16.5 and 14.5 tackles for loss the past 2 years. Oliver also tallied 11 career passes defensed and 192 total tackles. He'll be a high-upside selection for dynasty fantasy football leagues with DT slots.
Bills OLB Matt Milano had surgery Monday on the broken left fibula he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Jets. He'll miss the rest of the season. According to the Buffalo News, HC Sean McDermott said the team is still figuring out how to replace Milano and that it could use a "committee approach." This is a spot to ignore for IDP owners.
Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds cleared the concussion protocol Saturday and is expected to play today against the Jets. Barring some change, he should be in IDP lineups for Week 10
Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds has yet to clear the concussion protocol and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets. He put in limited practices Thursday and Friday. We'll see if he can gain clearance in time to play. If he doesn't, Julian Stanford showed last week that he's a viable fill-in with 8 tackles (7 solo), a sack and a forced fumble against the Bears.
The Bills have said MLB Tremaine Edmunds will return as a limited practice participant Wednesday. That indicates he has yet to gain full clearance from the concussion that cost him Week 9, but it also suggests Edmunds should be on track to return for Sunday's game against the Jets. We'll keep an eye out for that final clearance. An active Edmunds will belong in IDP lineups.
The Bills have downgraded MLB Tremaine Edmunds to out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Edmunds missed practice all week after suffering a concussion Monday night against the Patriots. We'll see if he can get cleared before a Week 10 visit to the Jets.
Bills MLB Tremaine Edmunds is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears with the concussion he suffered in Monday night's loss to the Patriots. That seems optimistic from the team, though. Edmunds missed the entire week of practice. We'll watch him through the weekend, but make sure you have another plan for your IDP lineup.
