The Bills have ruled out DT Marcell Dareus (knee) and CB Stephon Gilmore (concussion) for today's finale against the Patriots. Each player had been listed as doubtful. Losing 2 of their best defensive players takes some DFS sleeper appeal away from a Buffalo defense that figures to face Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo for half of today's contest and quite possibly see no TE Rob Gronkowski. The Bills still hold some contrarian value in a tournament lineup after already limiting Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers in recent weeks.
The Bills have made CB Tre'Davious White, DE Jerry Hughes and DE Mario Addison healthy scratches vs. the Dolphins today. That points to the team planning to rest starters in general over playing for the win. Keep that in mind if you've been planning to start QB Josh Allen or WR Stefon Diggs in a season-long lineup.
The Bills have placed CB Josh Norman on the COVID list after he tested positive. Buffalo has also placed TE Tyler Kroft, CB Levi Wallace and S Dean Marlowe on the list as close contacts. They won't travel for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. That removes a starting corner (Wallace) and the potential replacement for S Micah Hyde if Hyde turns up inactive. He's questionable after sustaining an ankle injury Thursday that kept him out of Friday's practice. So Buffalo could be facing Arizona down 2 of its top 3 outside CBs and starting a 3rd-stringer at safety.
Bills S Micah Hyde (concussion) is inactive for today's game against the Patriots. LB Matt Milano (pec) is active but could still see his role limited. DE Jerry Hughes (foot) and DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) are active as well.
Bills S Micah Hyde (concussion), DE Jerry Hughes (foot), LB Matt Milano (pec) and DT Quinton Jefferson (knee) are all questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Hyde looks unlikely to play after missing practice all week. Hughes and Jefferson each put in a full practice Friday and looks likely to be available. Milano played through a questionable tag last week and continued to practice on a limited basis this week. He played just a fraction of his normal role in Week 7, though. We have to assume he won't be back to full playing time this week.
Bills LB Matt Milano and CB Tre'Davious White are active for today's game against the Jets. Milano had missed the past 2 games with a pectoral injury but looks good to go for IDP lineups. White's back issue popped up during the week, so we'll see if it affects his playing time today. But White looks ready to go if you were planning to play him in your IDP lineup. The team defense only becomes a stronger fantasy play with 2 key starters in the lineup.
