    Bills' Robert Foster: Sitting out Tuesday's practice

    Robert Foster has a foot injury and will not practice Tuesday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.Coach Sean McDermott doesn't think it's a long-term issue for the second-year wideout, who will be jockeying for a depth position all summer. John Brown, Zay Jones and Cole Beasley all appear to be ahead of him in the early order, while Foster appears to be ahead of a slew of other guys following a surprising rookie season, where he ultimately ended up starting for the injury-depleted Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Alabama.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Receiving room mostly set

    The Buffalo Bills did not add a receiver during this weekend's draft with any of their eight picks, which leaves Robert Foster to compete with Zay Jones and incoming free agents John Brown and Cole Beasley for snaps in 2019, Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News reports.The Bills could add someone else to the mix, say a big name gets cut this summer, but for now the team appears fine with using the speedy Foster as the No. 4 man entering the campaign. While Foster's 27-541-3 line in 13 games was big news for a guy that got cut earlier in his 2018 rookie season, the signings of proven receivers like Brown and Beasley do not help his outlook for improving on these figures. While Foster may have the most upside of the four, he still has a lot to prove, and being a possible No. 4 in a run-based scheme makes him mostly a dart or stash unless he can get himself bumped up with a stellar summer.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Gets competition for snaps

    Robert Foster may drop back to a part-time role in 2019 after the Buffalo Bills reached agreements to sign fellow wide receivers John Brown and Cole Beasley, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports.Foster was one of the league's standout undrafted rookies in 2018, catching 27 of 44 targets for 541 yards and three touchdowns, with nearly all his production occurring in November and December. The Bills' decision to sign another deep threat (Brown) suggests the team isn't entirely sold on their unexpected gem, perhaps viewing Foster as a one-dimensional player. It's also possible the team believes there's a cap on his development, as he'll celebrate his 25th birthday before the start of his second season. Of course, it could also be argued that Beasley and Brown will ultimately threaten Zay Jones more so than Foster, considering Jones was far less efficient with his targets in 2019. The division of playing time will be something to watch during training camp and the preseason.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Major rookie strides

    Robert Foster finished his rookie season with 27 catches (44 targets) for 541 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games.That's quite a feat considering Foster was undrafted and even got cut by the team in October, then had to bide his time on the practice squad for three weeks. He returned with something to prove, and quickly became the team's best deep threat and a good match for strong-armed quarterback Josh Allen. Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes were given the heave-ho by the Buffalo Bills before the season ended, so Foster will have a a fair chance to carry his success into next season. While he's a starter on paper now, the Bills have an insane amount of cap room and the job won't simply be handed to him. That said, he's got the speed to make game-breaking plays and proved it on a few occasions this season, finishing with an eye-popping 20.0 yards per reception.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Records 52 yards

    Robert Foster caught four of seven targets for 52 yards in Sunday's 24-12 loss to New England.Foster fell well short of the 94 yards he'd reached in four of the previous five games, but things certainly could have gone worse for owners desperate enough to look his way. The undrafted Alabama product will finish out his rookie campaign against the Dolphins in Week 17.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Catches long TD in Week 15

    Robert Foster caught four of five targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 14-13 win over the Lions.Foster's 42-yard touchdown with 10:26 left in the fourth quarter gave his team a 14-13 lead and ended up standing as the game-winning play. The undrafted rookie out of Alabama has consistently flashed a nice rapport on deep balls with strong-armed quarterback Josh Allen, racking up 94 yards or more in four of the past five games. Foster will have some upside against the Patriots in Week 16.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Over 100 yards against Jets again

    Robert 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 Buffalo 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.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Keeps climbing depth chart

    Robert Foster could serve as the No. 2 receiver over the Buffalo Bills' final four games after the team released Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes earlier this week, Kyle Silagyi of the Bills' official site reports. "I don't want to say [it's] a confidence boost," Foster said. "I just want to say that I don't want to allow myself to get comfortable. I keep saying that over and over, I don't want to get comfortable. I just want to continue to do what I'm doing and hope that it shows up on Sundays."It's quite the ascension for Foster, who was sitting on the practice squad less than a month ago. A few big games and a couple of roster moves later, Foster now looks to be no worse than the third option at receiver. The Buffalo passing game is incredibly inconsistent, but with a strong-armed rookie in Josh Allen throwing him the ball, the speedy Foster should have a few more big plays in him before the season draws to a close.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Hauls in 27-yard catch

    Robert 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.

    Bills' Robert Foster: Speeds past Jaguars

    Robert 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.
