The Buffalo Bills today announced the signing of WR Jeremy Kerley.

Fantasy Impact:

With not much depth at the receiver position in Buffalo, Kerley could etch out a role for himself either as the team's No. 2 wideout or in the slot. If it does turn out he has earned a significant role, you might want to consider him in the very late round of fantasy drafts. But temper expectations as he has never caught more than 64 passes in a season and he might be catching passes from A.J. McCarron.

New England Patriots sign WR Jordan Matthews

The New England Patriots are signing former Bills WR Jordan Matthews to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots recently shipped out WR Brandin Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams, and have now added Matthews as a depth chart signing. He will join a somewhat crowded receiver corps that features Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Cordarrelle Patterson, Phillip Dorsett, and Kenny Britt.

Matthews has yet to play a full 16-game season and appeared in only 10 games in his first season as a Bill. With all the mouths to feed in New England's passing game, Matthews shouldn't be on your fantasy radar at the moment.

Buffalo Bills sign QB AJ McCarron

The Buffalo Bills finally dipped their toes in the quarterback free agency market by signing former Bengal/Hue Jackson mancrush AJ McCarron to a two-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

McCarron is most likely the QB1 for the Bills as of right now, with Nathan Peterman penciled in as their QB2. However, with the No. 12 and No. 21 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft, it would not be a shock if they walked away from the draft with their starting QB of the future.

Bengals trade for OT Cordy Glenn

The Buffalo Bills are trading OT Cordy Glenn to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals will also receive the Bills' No. 21 overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, while the Bills obtain the Bengals' No. 12 overall first-round draft pick. A swap of later round picks is also a part of the deal.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals look to improve an offensive line that gave 39 sacks last season—tied for the sixth-most allowed. Acquiring the 12th overall pick means the Bills have a better shot at selecting a quarterback in the first round.

Browns trade for WR Jarvis Landry, QB Tyrod Taylor

Friday, March 9, 2018, 7:05pm

Chicago Tribune - [Full Article]

Two people familiar with the trade say the Cleveland Browns have agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a third-round draft pick.

The Browns were expected to target a quarterback in free agency but instead have landed the dynamic Taylor, who will likely take over as Cleveland starter. The Browns are still expected to take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.

Earlier, the Browns worked out a trade with Miami for three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry. The Miami Dolphins have agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Browns for two draft picks, a person familiar with the deal said Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Likely out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, the Browns have elected to trade for a solid starter in Taylor and will likely pick a quarterback early in the 2018 NFL Draft. Taylor's presence will allow the Browns to be patient with their young quarterback, whoever it is. The Landry trade hurts his fantasy stock since his role was well defined in Miami, though he should still be a fantasy starter, especially in PPR formats. The Browns now have a receiving corps of Landry, Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman to go along with athletic tight end David Njoku. In Miami, Landry's departure opens up 161 targets, so depending on what the Dolphins do in free agency and the Draft, DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills could see a big uptick in usage.

Bills have agreed to terms with RB Chris Ivory

ESPN - [Full Article]

Chris Ivory will sign a two-year deal with the Bills with a base value of $5.5 million and a maximum value of $6 million, a source confirmed to ESPN. Ivory will be guaranteed $3.25 million. NFL Network first reported Ivory’s compensation.

Fantasy Impact:

Since Ivory was released recently, he's able to sign with a team immediately. He'll likely serve as the backup to LeSean McCoy.

Bills Fire OC Rick Dennison

The Buffalo Bills have relieved Rick Dennison of his offensive coordinator duties.

Fantasy Impact:

According to a follow-up tweet by Carucci, they have yet to hire a replacement.

Packers hire Mike Pettine as defensive coordinator

Wednesday, January 10, 2018, 10:16am

Packers News - [Full Article]

Mike McCarthy’s search to fill his vacant defensive coordinator’s job ended suddenly after nine days when the Green Bay Packers coach chose former Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine to succeed Dom Capers.

Pettine, 51, was out of football in 2016 after compiling a 10-22 record in two seasons as coach of the Cleveland Browns and spent this past season as a defensive consultant with the Seattle Seahawks.

McCarthy had interest in Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, but it appears Fangio is going to stick with the Bears. He also asked for permission to speak with Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, but never got to interview him. Bradley agreed to return to the Chargers Tuesday night.

Along the way to his head-coaching job, Pettine was part of some of the NFL’s top defenses. From ’09-12, the Jets ranked 1st, 3rd, 5th and 8th in overall defense. Ryan received most of the credit for the Jets’ great defenses, but a Cleveland.com story said that Ryan turned over much of the responsibility of the defense to Pettine after the 2009 season.

In 2013, after Pettine went to Buffalo, the Bills ranked 10th in defense.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story mentioned, Pettine's defenses in New York and Buffalo all ranked top 10 in yards allowed, though they were 20th in points allowed in three straight seasons (two in New York and one in Buffalo). There may be some growing pains along the way, but this looks like a good hire for Green Bay.

Bills RB LeSean McCoy ACTIVE vs. Jaguars

Bills Inactives

LB Matt Milano
WR Brandon Reilly
WR Malachi Dupre
TE Khari Lee
OT Conor McDermott
G John Miller
CB Shareece Wright

Fantasy Impact:

McCoy may not be 100% but he'll be out there against the Jaguars.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin (knee) took limited practice reps all week. Benjamin should be able to play through the injury again this week.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills RB Mike Tolbert (not injury related) missed practice Friday.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 18. McCoy is trending the right way and should be able to play against the Jaguars, even though he won’t be near 100 percent. If he’s unable to play, then Mike Tolbert and Marcus Murphy would try to pick up the slack.

Titans RB DeMarco Murray (knee, out) missed practice again Thursday and is out for Week 18. With Murray out look for Derrick Henry to carry the load against the Chiefs, who have given up 119 rushing yards and 1.0 rushing touchdown per game this year. Last week, Henry carried the ball 28 times for 51 yards against the Jaguars, but scored on a 66-yard touchdown reception to post a nice fantasy line.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills QB Joe Webb (ankle, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 18.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Jaguars QB Blake Bortles (right wrist) took full practice reps all week. Bortles will be fine to face the Bills. After scoring 11 touchdowns (9 passing, 2 rushing) in his previous five games, Bortles wasn’t good—158 passing yards, 2 interceptions—against the Titans in a Week 17 game that the Jaguars were trying to win.

Friday, January 5, 2018, 4:55pm

Bills TE Charles Clay (knee) took limited practice reps all week. Clay should be able to play through the knee injury again this week. Unfortunately, the Jaguars are No. 1 in TE aFPA this season.
