2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
As the No, 25th ranked tight end in 2016 with 5.3 points per game, Charles Clay was merely a streaming tight end play in most leagues last season. Although Clay was active in the passing game to start the year with seven targets is two of Buffalo's first four games, he did not record his first receiving touchdown until Week 14 against Pittsburgh.

With a new coaching staff and new offensive coordinator, is too difficult to predict how much Clay with be used in 2017. The team is still concerned with Clay's on-going knee issues and will likely limit his practice time in-season. On a positive note, he did finish last season strong, with touchdowns in three of the final four games, including an eight-catch, 85-yard, two touchdown game in the fantasy Super Bowl Week 16.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Zay Jones out, Clay expected to play
Bills TE hasn't played since Week 5
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 10, 11:30 am

Buffalo Bills
Left tackle Cordy Glenn and wide receiver Zay Jones have been ruled out for the game because of injuries. Jones hurt his knee against the Jets and the rookie’s absence will open up more room for Kelvin Benjamin in the offense as Benjamin makes his Bills debut after last week’s trade with the Panthers. Tight end Charles Clay is questionable, although the signs have been positive about his return from a knee injury. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The Bills should have their tight end back but will be missing WR Zay Jones. Benjamin and Jordan Matthews should be the main targets on the outside for Tyrod Taylor. Clay is a viable tight end streamer for those desperate for a warm body at the position.


Injury Charles Clay "looking good" for Week 10
Sidelined since Week 5 with sprained MCL, torn meniscus
By: Doug Orth | Thu Nov 9, 7:10 pm

Buffalo Bills
Bills coach Sean McDermott said TE Charles Clay (knee) is looking good to play Sunday after practicing again Thursday. "He practiced today, did some good things," he said. "The biggest thing is going to be first week back, how he transitions from yesterday to today -- which I thought was in the right direction - and from today to tomorrow, and going into the game." (ESPN - Mike Rodak)

FFToday's Take: Clay was one of the few constants at the tight end position through five games before going down. Even though Buffalo added Kelvin Benjamin in his absence, Tyrod Taylor has more history and/or chemistry with Clay than any other Bill pass-catcher. While he may not be able to maintain the near-70 catch pace he was on before the injury, Clay should be immediately inserted back in lineups as a low-end TE1. Nick O'Leary will return to a mere reserve role and can be dropped in most leagues.


Injury TE Charles Clay ruled out for Thursday night
Knee injury keeps Buffalo TE sidelined for third straight week
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 1, 12:00 pm

Buffalo Bills
Charles Clay (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Jets, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. (CBSSports.com)

FFToday's Take: Charles Clay (knee) can be removed from your week 9 lineup. Nick O'Leary will serve as the team's tight end for Thursday night. Buffalo's backup tight end caught one of three balls thrown to him last week and isn't a recommended fantasy option.


Injury Charles Clay out multiple weeks
Torn meniscus and sprained MCL
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 9, 5:15 pm

Buffalo Bills
Charles Clay has been diagnosed with a torn meniscus and sprained MCL. He had surgery to repair the injury on Monday and coach Sean McDermott told the media that he anticipates being without Clay for multiple weeks. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Clay had emerged as the top playmaker in an otherwise lackluster Bills' passing game and was one of the few reliable fantasy tight ends thus far, so this one hurts. Nick O'Leary stepped up with five catches for a team-high 54 yards in his absence in Week 5 and will be worth consideration for the many owners desperate for production from their tight end. The Bills have a bye in Week 6 and O'Leary doesn't have a particularly good matchup in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Injury Jordan Matthews out at least a month
Thumb surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 2, 7:15 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews will undergo thumb surgery and is expected to miss at least a month. (Sal Capaccio on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The loss of Matthews depletes an already weak receiving corps. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes appear to be Tyrod Taylor's top targets on the outside, but it may TE Charles Clay who sees an increase in target share.
