In addition to viewing our 2018 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2018 fantasy football projections for the Buffalo Bills.


Josh Allen315.3182.9227014.212.629.11310.60.3138.5
While there are more important attributes in quarterback play, few, if any, quarterbacks in the league have a stronger arm than Allen, the seventh-overall pick in this year's draft. At one point this preseason, Allen appeared to be the favorite -- although not necessarily a "lock" -- to start heading into the season. Unfortunately, the team lacks playmakers on offense and neither Allen nor Nathan Peterman are attractive options even in 2-QB formats.
Nathan Peterman169.893.411045.
If Allen starts (and struggles), Peterman could get some relief duty and a start or two. Either way, he's not worth drafting outside of deep 2-QB leagues.

Running Backs

LeSean McCoy255.41059.96.143.8324.11.80.7184.4
Averaging a career-low 4.0 yards per carry, McCoy was a do-it-all option for the Bills last season. Not only did he rush for 1,138 yards and six touchdowns, but he led the team in targets (77) and receptions (59). Coach Sean McDermott says McCoy looks "quicker, faster and more powerful than last year." While it's unclear what may result from the off-field incident earlier this summer, there remains potential for league discipline.
Chris Ivory141.1550.33.514.9117.70.51.388.2
Ivory averaged a career-low 3.4 YPC for Jacksonville last season as the 30-year-old back signed a two-year deal with Buffalo. Ivory would be the team's first option and a fantasy RB2/flex if McCoy were to miss any time.
Marcus Murphy9.4400.24.723.5007.55
Patrick DiMarco3.
Taiwan Jones2.28.801.415.4002.42

Wide Receivers

Kelvin Benjamin58.28096.10000.2117.1
Traded during the season to the Bills, Benjamin finished the full season with 48 receptions, 692 yards and three touchdowns. With only 16/217/1 in his six games with the Bills, Benjamin wasn't 100 percent during that time, but he should lead the team in receiving assuming good health in 2018.
Zay Jones37.3417.82.6000057.38
Jones will look to improve upon a less-than-mediocre rookie campaign (27/316/2). The team has one of the league's weakest receiving corps so there is some potential to post better year-over-year numbers although Jones won't be a fantasy factor.
Jeremy Kerley46.3453.72.30001.556.17
Andre Holmes21.1206.82.1000033.28
Ray-Ray McCloud7840.4000010.8

Tight Ends

Charles Clay50.6551.54.60000.182.55
Leading the team in receiving yards (558) last season, Clay is one of the team's top-three most reliable pass-catchers along with Kelvin Benjamin and LeSean McCoy. With more than 500 receiving yards in all three of his seasons in Buffalo, Clay has top-15 upside if he can stay healthy all season.
Logan Thomas21.1215.22.50000.136.32
Khari Lee2.924.70.200003.67
