The Buffalo Bills are a really bad football team. It doesn't take a football savant to realize that. Although in terms of fantasy, even bad teams sometimes have players who are relevant, even useful or effective. Not this Bills team though. This Bills team at this point doesn't have anyone who is a viable fantasy option, at any position.

Almost all fantasy football leagues fall somewhere between 10-14 participants. The Bills current highest ranked player by position is Steven Hauschka, who is the 20th ranked fantasy kicker in ESPN PPR leagues. You know it's not a good sign when your team's kicker is the most viable fantasy option.


Running through the rest of the roster, the quarterback position is a complete mess. Nathan Peterman didn't even last a full game and rookie Josh Allen has been thrown into the fire behind arguably the worst offensive line in football. Allen was a quarterback who no one thought would be ready to play this year even in a great situation. Allen and Peterman are the 30th and 110th ranked quarterbacks respectively. 

Quarterback play obviously affects the rest of the offense, especially wide receivers. The Bills wide receiving core has been, you guessed it, awful. Kelvin Benjamin and Zay Jones, the teams two best wideouts are ranked an abysmal 75th and 70th in ESPN fantasy. 


Now that we're at the running game, it's starting to sound like a broken record. The Bills awful offensive line has provided no opportunities for the running game. LeSean McCoy, the team's one big-name skill position player is ranked as the 41st best running back. That barely has him in flex consideration for most leagues. Not to mention his mounting pile of legal issues could take him off the field entirely at some point this season. Oh, and yeah, he's also battling a rib injury. 

And lastly, how's the defense you ask? They're ranked 30th out of 32 teams and have given up 78 points in two games.


While some of the Bills skill players had some chance at fantasy relevancy during draft time, it took only two games for everyone to quickly realize that isn't the case and might not ever be the case in 2018.
