2019 Fantasy Football Projections: Buffalo Bills

- Updated: Wednesday, June 5th


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Buffalo Bills.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Josh Allen526.5289.63553.918.6917.6495.9517.95.51266.49
Returning from injury after Buffalo's Week 11 bye, Allen failed to exceed 231 passing yards in the final six games of the season, completed just 51.9 percent of his pass attempts and threw seven interceptions. Given his rushing production (54/576/5), which included four 95-yard rushing games over his final six, however, the rookie was fantasy's QB1 from Week 12 on. In fact, he scored 12.93 fantasy points per game during that stretch from his rushing stats alone.

Inconsistency may detract from his appeal in season-long formats, but he's an ideal QB2 in best-ball formats or starter in DFS tournaments due to his upside.

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
LeSean McCoy147.4560.14.0526.3189.40.53102.43
After the NFL Draft, GM Brandon Beane said that McCoy is "still here" and "the starter," but few would be surprised if he was released before the start of the season. Inefficient with a career-low 3.2 yards per carry, the 31-year-old (in July) finished second on the team in rushing behind rookie quarterback Josh Allen.

McCoy tied his career low in touches (195), which he set as a rookie in 2009. If he's still on the roster in September, a new career low in touches is likely for Shady.
Frank Gore105.3400.12.1110.183.80.5164.11
Playing for his third team in three years and now 36 years old, the next time that Gore averages single-digit touches per game will be his first. Perhaps that first time is this year, but he's likely to be involved enough to limit the upside of the team's other (rather uninspiring) backfield options.
T.J. Yeldon48196.80.631.5236.31.8958.25
With a pair of 30-somethings ahead of him on the depth chart, it's certainly possible that Yeldon has a few weeks where he becomes very fantasy-relevant. Better in full PPR formats, Yeldon set a career high with 55 catches last season and now has at least 30 in all four of his NFL seasons.
Devin Singletary52.7210.81.0515.1113.30.4541.41
The Bills used a top-75 pick on Singletary, the RB5 in the 2019 NFL Draft, but the highly-productive former Owl should make a much larger fantasy impact in 2020 than this year.

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Robert Foster46.1806.84.61000108.34
A big play waiting to happen, Foster had at least 50 receiving yards and/or a touchdown in six of his final seven games last season. In fact, he had three 100-yard games over that stretch and was one of just nine players to do during that span. Even with the free-agent additions of Cole Beasley and John Brown, I like Foster as much as any Bills receiver (especially in non-PPR formats) heading into 2019.
John Brown37.7599.43.967420.2889.58
Brown played a full season in 2018 and finished with 42/715/5 (17.0 Y/R) with the Ravens. Pairing his speed with Josh Allen's strong arm means a huge week could happen any week, but he's likely to be consistently inconsistent on a week-to-week basis that it will be difficult to know when to capitalize on those potential boom weeks.
Cole Beasley61.3631.43.6800085.22
Exceeding 675 receiving yards only once (2016) in his career, Beasley will once again fall short of that mark based on my current projections. Unless you're in a deep PPR league, Beasley has limited fantasy appeal in Buffalo's run-first offense.
Zay Jones43.8503.73.500071.37
Isaiah McKenzie4.746.10.194.725.90.249.78
David Sills4.144.30.410006.89
