    Bills WR Chris Hogan steps up in absence of injured WR

    Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan caught three of four targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Miami. The fourth receiver saw extended action in this game, as Sammy Watkins went out with a calf injury. Watkins' injury isn't expected to be serious, but if he was forced to miss a week or two, then Hogan would be moved to the No. 3 role and would likely see the field in most sets. Coach Rex Ryan went out of his way to commend Hogan for being ready to step up in a pinch.

    Bills WR Chirs Hogan buried in the depth chart in Week 2

    Bills wide receiver Chris Hogan caught his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He saw the field for just 11 of 72 offensive plays, The Buffalo News reports. Hogan has clearly taken a back seat to Percy Harvin and Robert Woods in the team's new offense. He has just the one catch on the season, and 15 offensive plays under his belt. Unless something happens to the aforementioned two teammates or Sammy Watkins, Hogan isn't worth a roster spot.

    Bills EJ Manuel working with Steve DeBerg on throwing motion

    Bills quarterback EJ Manuel is happy to get a fresh start with new coach Rex Ryan. "I think God works in mysterious ways," he said, per the Buffalo News. "I'm excited with the coach we have now. I think he's built a great staff around him. Offensively, I know we have some great guys." "That's all I want for myself," Manuel said of the quarterback competition. "I just want to be able to compete, let it be open, and at the end of the day the best man will play." Manuel spent part of the offseason working on his throwing motion with Steve DeBerg. "We studied a bunch of elite passers in the game, and they all throw the ball, not necessarily the same exact way, but certain types of ways," Manuel said. "I've been working on that since January and I think I have it down now." He also spent time working out with Bills WR Chris Hogan.

    Bills receiving corps really annoying

    So basically everyone who catches passes for the Bills had a big game Week 14 at Denver ... except for the only one who was putting up numbers before then. Robert Woods, who had four catches for 71 yards in Week 13 and nine catches for 118 yards and a touchdown in Week 12, had only three catches for 36 yards in this one. Sammy Watkins led the way with seven catches for 127 yards, but that's what he's supposed to do. He hadn't done it the last four weeks, but Fantasy owners will take it at Woods' expense. They may balk at Chris Hogan catching seven passes for 54 yards and a touchdown out of nowhere, though. He first entered the picture with a couple big games earlier in the year but faded into the background the last couple weeks with a combined four catches for 13 yards. Granted, one of those catches went for a touchdown, but those flukes will happen from time to time. As far as Fantasy owners knew, Hogan wasn't part of the plan, but Woods was in a major way. So which of these three can you trust? Honestly, none. Watkins is supposed to be the standout, but he had averaged just 26.3 yards in the four games prior to Week 14. You start him if you need to gamble on a big week, but in all likelihood, you have more consistent options at wide receiver. Kyle Orton is a productive enough quarterback for one of these three to make a splash every week, but since you won't know which one, you shouldn't be counting on any of them in 12-team leagues.
