Bills vs. Patriots
G Richie Incognito (shoulder)
T Cyrus Kouandjio (knee)
CB Justin Coleman (hand), LB Jamie Collins (illness), WR Julian Edelman (foot)
T Marcus Cannon (toe), G Tre' Jackson (knee), WR Keshawn Martin (hamstring), T Sebastian Vollmer (concussion)
DT Alan Branch (elbow), DE Chandler Jones (abdomen), G Shaquille Mason (knee), DE Jabaal Sheard (ankle)
Keshawn Martin popped up on the fantasy radar this week as a possible replacement for Julian Edelman. But Martin is dealing with a hamstring issue and that makes him even more risky for lineups this week. Best to take a wait-and-see approach with Martin. Danny Amendola looks like a safer play right now until we see how this unfolds. As for the Bills, in terms of fantasy offensive players, they enter this contest healthy.
QB EJ Manuel
LB Randell Johnson
OL Gabe Ikard
DT Kyle Williams
CB Mario Butler
OT Cyrus Kouandjio
DT Stefan Charles
The probable tags indicate that McCoy and Watkins will play their usual role, health permitting. Watkins will have to deal with Darrelle Revis, while McCoy and Karlos Williams will form a 1-2 punch against a Jets defense that has yielded a combined 5.20 YPC to T.J. Yeldon and Latavius Murray in the last two weeks.

Williams was not touched by another player as he was fielding a punt in a return drill when his leg buckled somewhat. He then let out a scream as he fell to the ground. He was taken to the locker room on a cart.
“It’s his Achilles," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said following practice. " … He wasn’t even touched; just feel bad for him. I know he’s disappointed."
Williams will undergo additional tests, including an MRI. Williams posted on Instagram on Saturday he would miss the season because of the injury.

For the first time since the Dick Vermeil era of the Air Coryell offense, the Chiefs just might have enough talent at the wide receiver position so that quarterback Alex Smith doesn’t fall into a deep state of depression when he steps up in the pocket and looks down field.
Dwayne Bowe is the unquestionable leader of the group, but Junior Hemingway also has emerged as a big, reliable slot target. DeAnthony Thomas already has proven to be an electrifying playmaker, whether the rookie’s taking a handoff or splitting out wide. And a group that includes Donnie Avery, Kyle Williams, A.J. Jenkins and Frankie Hammond Jr. has all had moments of brilliance.
With a potentially faster, more athletic group of wide receivers this season, Smith hopes to be able to stretch defenses and deliver the ball deeper down the field.
“Our whole receiver crew I think has done an excellent job and had a great offseason. They’ve kept it going in camp with the pads on,” Smith said. “Those guys come out and battle every single day. They get a lot of tough looks; they come out prepared and make a lot of plays.”
This is a bit of a fluff piece from the team's official website, but it's good to hear some positive comments about the receiving corps. If TE Travis Kelce can come along, Smith may have a better time pushing the ball downfield in 2014, and that should only serve to help his fantasy value.

When the Kansas City Chiefs utilized offensive formations that featured at least three wide receivers last season, invariably Dexter McCluster was that first player off the bench as the slot receiver.
They may be able to pick and choose from a variety of candidates for that job this season. They range from traditional smaller, quicker players like Kyle Williams and rookies De'Anthony Thomas and Albert Wilson to a bigger receiver like Junior Hemingway.
All could make the roster and the Chiefs just might fill the departed McCluster’s role with any of several players, depending on their particular needs at the time.
Hemingway is an interesting candidate. He played some for the Chiefs last season in their multiple-receiver formations as a slot receiver, though at 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, he hardly fits the profile of the typical slot receiver.

Kyle Williams and Frankie Hammond Jr. took advantage of their absence. Williams caught several catches, while Hammond had the play of the day. He caught a pass over the middle and then weaved his way through several defenders for the touchdown.
