Clay caught five balls on eight targets for 31 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Clay hasn't scored since Week 3. Even though the Bills love the all-around game he brings to the table, the passing attack is so inconsistent that Clay's production typically trails his skill set. There may be one or two decent games in store the rest of the way as the team continues to figure things out, but no one outside of LeSean McCoy has proven consistent in this offense and it's best to avoid most of the constituents as every-week starters if you can help it, McCoy and Sammy Watkins aside.
Clay, who left Monday's game against the Patriots for a time with a neck issue, is not listed on the Bills' Week 12 injury report. Coming off a one-catch, 14-yard effort on three Week 11 targets, Clay is a speculative play Sunday against the Chiefs, a team that has reeled off four straight wins and held San Diego tight ends Ladarius Green and Antonio Gates to a combined two catches for 15 yards this past weekend.
Clay is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Patriots due to a neck injury. Clay suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter. It remains to be seen if he will be able to take the field for the final minutes of the contest.
Clay had just one catch for six yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. Well, at least the big-priced tight end caught his only target, but that's now back-to-back duds following a 9/62/0 performance in Week 6. Clay had a great matchup against his former mates, but the Bills ran the ball all day long and only attempted 12 passes, while only four of those didn't go to Sammy Watkins. Clay will have bigger games, but his role has been far from consistent in his first season with the Bills. He sits 14th in tight end, non-PPR scoring heading into the Monday night game.
Bills tight end Charles Clay had three catches on five targets for 26 yards Sunday against the Jaguars in London. Clay was expected to get more opportunities thanks to the injuries to Percy Harvin (hip) and Sammy Watkins (ankle), but backup quarterback EJ Manuel focused mostly on his wideouts Sunday, With Tyrod Taylor (knee) expected back in Week 9 after the team's Week 8 bye, Clay is likely to get back to his increased target level.
