Foster caught seven of eight targets for 104 yards in Sunday's 27-23 loss to the Jets. Foster accounted for more than half of quarterback Josh Allen's 206 passing yards. Something about facing this opponent brings out the best in the rookie, as he's topped 100 yards in both meetings with the Jets while totaling 151 yards against all other competition. While Foster's probably the most fantasy relevant receiver on the Bills, Allen's struggles as a passer will make it tough to trust any member of Buffalo's offense against the Lions in Week 15.
Foster was targeted four times and came down with one 27-yard pass during Sunday's 21-17 loss to Miami. Sure, Foster hasn't seen too much volume as an undrafted rookie this season, but things have picked up in recent weeks. Foster has caught six of 10 targets over the past three weeks after just two catches off of nine targets to start the season and has picked up at least 20 yards on four of those recent catches, including Week 12's 75-yard touchdown grab. The release of veterans Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes makes Buffalo's passing game a youth operation. These next few weeks might not be pretty, but with rocket-armed rookie passer Josh Allen and Foster's ability to make big plays, there's a good opportunity for some highlights, too. Sunday brings a Jets defense so-so at stopping big passing plays, surrendering 11.9 yards per reception this season.
Foster caught two of three targets for 94 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-21 win over the Jaguars. Foster's highlight came in the first quarter when rookie Josh Allen found him deep for a 75-yard strike to put Buffalo up by two touchdowns. The rookie had just two catches on the season heading into last week, but has five during Buffalo's two-game winning streak, three having gone for 40 yards or more. He gets a very favorable matchup to keep that going next Sunday against a Miami defense giving up 12.4 yards per catch, among the bottom five in the league.
Foster caught three of four targets for 105 yards in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Jets. Foster's only previous NFL stats were two catches for 30 yards accrued in Week 2, but it took him just one play to eclipse that production. He gained 47 yards on the game's first play and ended up topping 100. Despite Foster's strong performance here, he'll be very difficult to trust after the Week 11 bye, given what we've seen from Buffalo's offense this season (this game notwithstanding).
Foster was targeted twice but didn't catch a pass during Sunday's win at Minnesota. The undrafted rookie was on the field for 22 offensive plays (33 percent), eight more than rookie Ray-Ray McCloud, which confirms the notion that Foster is No. 4 on the depth chart. While there's no fantasy value to be had now, the three guys ahead of him -- Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and Andre Holmes -- are all uninspiring, and if the Bills fall out of the playoff race or someone gets hurt then Foster may see more chances. For now, the Bills will keep trying to hit him on home-run balls from big-armed rookie Josh Allen.
