The Bills selected Georgia QB Jake Fromm in the 5th round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Fromm’s tape won’t ‘wow’ you. He’s 6’2, 219 pounds with a below-average arm and bottom-barrel athleticism (22nd percentile SPARQ score). But all he did was win at Georgia. Fromm replaced the injured Jacob Eason early in his 2017 freshman campaign and never relinquished the starting job. He ended up starting 42 games over the past 3 years, compiling a 35-7 record. Fromm leaves the Bulldogs with a career 63% completion rate, 8.4 yards per attempt and 78-to-18 TD:INT ratio. But the fact that he set career lows in completion rate (60.8%) and yards per attempt (7.4) this past season is troubling. Fromm’s 68% adjusted completion rate ranked just 88th among draft-eligible QBs. He’ll battle for the backup job behind Josh Allen in Buffalo.
Bills WR Cole Beasley, WR John Brown, RB Devin Singletary and TE Dawson Knox are all inactive for today’s game against the Jets. Don’t expect to see much of QB Josh Allen or RB Frank Gore. Top CB Tre’Davious White is also inactive for Buffalo.
Here's what Bills HC Sean McDermott said Tuesday about how he'll handle his team's meaningless Sunday finale against the Jets, according to SNY.tv: "We're going to play a majority of the guys. To go into detail will take some time, but the majority of guys will play, not all of them. Josh (Allen) will play. They're not all going to play the same amount in the game. We're going to be smart with that, but it's important that we get work in fundamentally and in terms of execution and we stay as sharp as can be." Translation: Expect most starters to play. Don't expect any key guys to make it past halftime. We'd plan on not using QB Josh Allen, RB Devin Singletary or the WRs, if you can help it.
The forecast for today's Ravens-Bills game calls for 15-20 mph winds with gusts of 30+. QBs Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen both do a lot of their fantasy damage on the ground, so neither guy is significantly hurt by the weather. We would slightly downgrade WRs John Brown and Marquise Brown with deep passes likely to be impacted.
The forecast for today's Broncos-Bills game calls for sustained winds of 20 mph with gusts over 25. Hopefully you're not too invested in these passing games, but the windy conditions downgrade guys like QB Josh Allen and WRs John Brown and Courtland Sutton.
The forecast for today's Redskins-Bills game calls for winds between 15 and 20 mph with gusts around 30 mph. It won't be as windy as it was last week, but this is still enough to give slight bumps down to the passing and kicking games. Hopefully you were already avoiding Washington's passing game (including Terry McLaurin) in rookie QB Dwayne Haskins' 1st start. QB Josh Allen and WR John Brown remain fine plays on the Buffalo side. We'd try not to use either K in this game.
The forecast for today's Eagles-Bills game calls for a 30% chance of rain with winds of 27-32 mph. Gusts could reach 40 mph. That's more that enough to impact the passing and kicking games. We've just updated our projections for all the players in this game.
Bills QB Josh Allen (concussion) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He’s more of a QB2 vs. the #8 defense in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.
Bills QB Josh Allen has cleared the concussion protocol and will start Sunday's game against the Titans. He's a shaky QB1 play vs. a Tennessee defense sitting 8th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.
Bills QB Josh Allen (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans. He put in a full practice on Friday, but HC Sean McDermott said that Allen is still in the protocol. It looks like he has a shot to be cleared in time for Sunday’s game, though. We'll continue to update his status throughout the weekend.
Bills QB Josh Allen (concussion) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and seems no better than 50/50 to be cleared in time for this weekend's game against the Titans. QB Matt Barkley will start if Allen can't.
Bills QB Josh Allen (concussion) will take part in some individual drills on Wednesday, HC Sean McDermott said. That means Allen has made some progress in the protocol and gives him a shot to be cleared by Sunday's game against the Titans. Check back tomorrow for another update.
Bills QB Josh Allen took a helmet-to-helmet hit in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Patriots. He jogged off the field but will certainly be checked for a concussion. Stay tuned for an update.
Update: Allen has been diagnosed with a concussion.
The Bills will be signing WR John Brown for 3 years at $27 million, according to multiple reports. Brown will join Robert Foster and Zay Jones in the top 3. He and Foster look best suited on the outside, with Jones' skills seeming to fit nicely in the slot. Of course, all will deal with the limited accuracy of QB Josh Allen. The move doesn't bode well for Brown's fantasy football consistency. There is upside, however. Allen led all qualifying QBs last year with 19.7% of his pass attempts traveling 20+ yards downfield (according to Pro Football Focus) -- an area in which Brown excels. Allen also ranked just 20th out of 24, however, in deep-ball accuracy (36.5%).
The Bills have signed C Mitch Morse. He'll get over $11 million per year, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo, making Morse the league's highest-paid C. The former Chief missed 14 games over the last 2 seasons with a foot injury and concussion but ranked 13th among 38 Cs in Pro Football Focus' 2019 grades.
Bills QB Josh Allen has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Jets. The team announced that Matt Barkley will start in his place. Barkley gets the nod over Nate Peterman, who’s tossed 7 picks — vs. 1 TD — on just 49 attempts. Barkley was signed on October 31st and doesn’t project as much of an upgrade. The Jets D/ST remains an elite option.
Bills QB Josh Allen (elbow) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Jets after a limited week of practice. QB Derek Anderson has been ruled out with his concussion. HC Sean McDermott wouldn’t say on Friday whether Nathan Peterman or Matt Barkley will start this weekend if Allen can’t. Regardless, avoid the Bills passing game in fantasy lineups and start the Jets defense.
