Bills signed WR Victor Bolden.

The Bills placed RB Marcus Murphy (elbow) on Injured Reserve, which opened up a spot on the roster. Bolden will be way off the fantasy radar.

Bills placed RB Marcus Murphy (elbow) on Injured Reserve.

Murphy dislocated his elbow in Week 15 while taking over lead back duties with LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) missing time. If both players are still out for Week 16, Keith Ford will be a volume-based RB2/3 sleeper. The Bills signed WR Victor Bolden in a corresponding move.

Bills RB Marcus Murphy has a dislocated elbow.

He will go on I.R. Murphy operated as Buffalo's lead back in LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory's (shoulder) Week 15 absence before going down. Keith Ford entered to parlay 15 touches into 53 yards. If McCoy and Ivory can't go in Week 16 against the Patriots, Ford could become a sleeper for 20 touches.

Zay Jones caught just 1-of-6 targets for 11 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Even with Josh Allen playing well, Jones could not do much against Darius Slay in this one. Allen gave him a chance on essentially a Hail Mary late in the second quarter, but Jones could not come up with the catch. That was the story of the second-half as well. Zay dropped what would have been a good gain early in the fourth quarter, and he was blanketed by Slay on a failed connection on the very next play. He did draw DPI on Slay the next drive, but this was another disappointing outing for Jones. Robert Foster is the receiver to roster in Buffalo right now.

Keith Ford rushed 14 times for 46 yards and caught his only target for seven yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Lions.

After Marcus Murphy exited in the second quarter, Ford was the only option in the backfield for the Bills. He briefly left himself in the third quarter, but he was able to return. Ford looked perfectly serviceable in the lead role, but both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Chris Ivory (shoulder) appeared close to playing this week. One or both of them should be back to face the Patriots next week.
Dec 16 - 5:48 PM

Charles Clay did not catch a pass Week 15 against the Lions.

Clay now has two catches for 15 yards in three games since returning from injury. He is well of the fantasy radar.
Dec 16 - 5:45 PM

Isaiah McKenzie hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 53 yards in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Lions.

McKenzie was the target of choice early in this game, quickly notching four catches for 35 yards for a suddenly competent Buffalo passing attack. He added another couple catches in the second quarter to bring his total to six heading into the break. Unfortunately, he suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter and was carted off the field. He shockingly returned in the fourth, but he did not touch the ball again. McKenzie could be worth a look in deeper PPR leagues, but that is it.
Dec 16 - 5:45 PM

Robert Foster hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Foster made his presence known in the second quarter, getting loose for a 28-yard gain and drawing a long DPI to set up Buffalo’s first touchdown. He got open again for another long gain in the third quarter, just getting his feet down after bobbling the ball along the sidelines, and he gave the Bills the lead with a 42-yard touchdown catch in the fourth, which turned out to be the game-winning score. It was his second touchdown of the season, and the catch put him over 100 yards for the third time in five games -- he also has a 94-yard effort over that span. Running hot right now, Foster will have some WR3 appeal in deeper leagues next week in New England.
Dec 16 - 4:31 PM

Josh Allen completed 13-of-26 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown and rushed nine times for 16 yards and another score in the Bills' Week 15 win over the Lions.

Allen did not do much with his legs in this one, but he made plays as a passer. He quickly hooked up with Isaiah McKenzie for four catches, and he took advantage of Robert Foster’s speed with a long gain and a long DPI in the second quarter. He got loose on the ground at the end of that drive, faking out Jarrad Davis in the backfield, getting the corner, and scoring from three yards out. After a couple punts, Allen got the offense moving again in the third quarter with a 31-yard connection to Foster. He should have had a long touchdown to Deonte Thompson on the next drive, but he put it just a hair too far out in front. He did not make the same mistake on the next one, finding Foster for a 42-yard touchdown which turned out to be the game-winning score. Holding onto a one-point lead, Buffalo put the ball in Allen's hands on fourth-and-one, and he converted to close out the game. This was not a ceiling game for Allen, but it was another solid fantasy effort.

Isaiah McKenzie (ankle) returned to Week 15 against the Lions.

Carted off the field after suffering a non-contact injury on a punt return, McKenzie somehow is back on the field after getting taped up in the locker room. McKenzie has six catches for 53 yards so far.
Dec 16 - 3:25 PM

Bills WR Isaiah McKenzie exited Week 15 with a leg injury

McKenzie appeared to suffer some kind of injury on a carry in the third quarter, and he went down without any contact while returning a punt later in the quarter. It had the look of a season-ending injury. McKenzie had six catches for 53 yards before exiting.
Dec 16 - 2:57 PM

Marcus Murphy exited Week 15 against the Lions with an elbow injury.

Murphy went down at the end of a carry in the second quarter. He appeared to be in serious pain as he walked to the locker room, and it was revealed after the game he is dealing with a dislocated elbow. At this point, Keith Ford is Buffalo's only healthy running back. Murphy had 35 yards on 11 carries before exiting.
Dec 16 - 2:11 PM

UDFA Keith Ford will be the Bills' No. 2 running back for Week 15.

LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory are both inactive. A between-the-tackles grinder at Texas A&M, perhaps Ford will get to cash in some goal-line carries behind starter Marcus Murphy. He's the defintion of a Hail Mary play.
Dec 16 - 12:14 PM

Bills declared Derek Anderson inactive for Week 15 against the Lions.

Anderson has cleared the concussion protocol, but he is still inactive behind Josh Allen and Matt Barkley. Buffalo also declared LeSean McCoy (hamstring), Chris Ivory (shoulder), TE Logan Thomas (hamstring), CB Ryan Lewis (concussion), OG Vlad Ducasse, and S Dean Marlowe inactive for Week 15.
Dec 16 - 11:38 AM

Bills declared Chris Ivory (shoulder) inactive for Week 15 against the Lions.

LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is also out, leaving Marcus Murphy and undrafted rookie Keith Ford to man the backfield with gadget player Isaiah McKenzie likely to get some carries as well. Outside of Josh Allen, this is an offense to avoid for the most part in the fantasy semifinals.
