Buffalo Bills fantasy football preview , week five: otball scorer in 2018, but he is coming off an absolutely awful week. Even including Allen, who is currently the 25th-highest scoring quarterback in fantasy football, there are almost zero Buffalo Bills players who are worthy of starts in fantasy football.Why suggest some, then? Well, every once in a while, there comes a matchup where a Buffalo player may not only be in the right place at the right time, but he may be primed for a breakout. In this week’s matchup against a strong Tennessee Titans team, there are at least a few Bills who are worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.Here are some plays that could either turn out really well or leave you looking like the ultimate Buffalo fantasy homer.WR Zay JonesThis is a weird feeling , I’ll admit. I don’t think Jones is a terrific receiver. I have played the hindsight game multiple times, wishing the Bills had drafted Cooper Kupp, or Alvin Kamara, or virtually anyone other than Jones. However, someone has to catch passes from Josh Allen, and seeing as the Bills’ nominal number one receiver, Kelvin Benjamin, would struggle to catch a cold right now, I feel like Jones is the better play. He only has 17 targets on the season , and he’s caught 10 passes for 144 yards. 57 of those yards came on one reception. I think the game plan has to change in order to minimize Josh Allen’s limitations in reading defenses, and Jones thrived in a quick-strike, bubble-screen oriented offense at East Carolina. If the Bills are going to salvage their season, using Jones on quick throws against the Titans could be a great way to maintain possession and jump start their moribund offense. QB Josh AllenHe was awful last week, scoring 3.94 fantasy points on the day. I made the mistake of following my own advice by adding Allen...and dropping Mitchell Trubisky in the process. This week, however, is another opportunity for Buffalo’s rookie to showcase his skills. The roller coaster effect is going to continue with Allen as he continues to adjust to the level of play. While he may not be the safest play at quarterback, he may be worth a roll of the dice if your starter is on a bye or you don’t have an elite passer.TE Charles ClayThe Bills finally remembered that they had Clay on the roster last week. Josh Allen targeted Clay six times, which doubled his previous season-high for a game. While he only managed 4 catches for 40 yards on the day , that’s still a decent enough line for a tight end, especially in PPR leagues. If Clay produces a similar line next week, he only needs to find the end zone in order to turn the line into a magnificent one.Buffalo Bills injury update: Micah Hyde could miss time with groin injury The Buffalo Bills lost safety Micah Hyde early in their 22-0 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. While addressing the media on Monday, head coach Sean McDermott listed Hyde as “week to week” with a groin injury.“If Rafael [Bush] has to play, which he did in the ballgame yesterday, I think he’ll do a good job,” said coordinator Leslie Frazier. “He’s worked extremely hard in practice. He’s been preparing for this situation. And then you have Siran [Neal], as well, who would come in and get an opportunity to play. We have a couple options. We’ll see how things go this week , and who knows? Maybe Micah will make it back. Who knows?”With Frazier not closing the door completely, we’ll keep an eye on it moving forward.Elsewhere in the secondary, Phillip Gaines was a full participant on Friday but his dislocated elbow kept him out of the lineup on Sunday. Running back LeSean McCoy entered the game with sore ribs, but came out of the game fine said coach McDermott. Ditto for receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who took a shot to the head in the second half. Marcus Murphy, who also had rib problems, should be good to go moving forward at running back.
