  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Gets four touches in playoff loss

    McKenzie recorded one reception for a three-yard gain and carried three times for 15 yards across his 16 snaps on offense in Sunday's 42-36 overtime loss to the Chiefs in the divisional round.

    After busting out for 11 catches and 124 yards from scrimmage in the Bills' Week 16 win over the Patriots while both Gabriel Davis and Cole Beasley were out of the lineup, McKenzie predictably saw his snap counts and targets trend downward in the games that followed. That being said, offensive coordinator Brian Daboll made more of an effort to keep McKenzie involved over the Bills' final two regular-season contests and two playoff games compared to the first half of the campaign, with the 26-year-old garnering no fewer than four touches in any of those contests. Buffalo will likely look to retain McKenzie this offseason, but he could face a difficult path to earning more work on offense unless the Bills choose not to re-sign Emmanuel Sanders while also eschewing any major additions at receiver through the draft or free agency.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Back to life, back to reality

    McKenzie caught one of two targets for six yards and rushed once for three yards in Sunday's 29-15 win over the Falcons.

    Just as a welcome door opened for McKenzie in Week 16 due to the absences of Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis, allowing him to post an 11-125-1 line, it shut just as quickly when his two teammates returned from the COVID-19 protocols to play this week against Atlanta. McKenzie should serve in his jack-of-all-trades role the rest of the way, barring injury to one of his teammates higher on the depth chart. While he has a tendency to sneak into the end zone on occasion, he won't be catching 11 balls on a single afternoon again anytime soon.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Likely looking at decreased role

    McKenzie could be in line to see decreased work on offense with Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis both back from the reserve/COVID-19 list, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    Even though Emmanuel Sanders is inactive Sunday with a knee injury, there are still three healthy wideouts presumably ahead of McKenzie on the depth chart, so there's a risk he's relegated back to return duties despite an outstanding effort in Week 16. With Beasley and Davis both out last week against New England, the door was open for McKenzie to log a career game, and he did just that by catching 11 of his 12 targets for 125 yards and a score. Amended NFL protocol will allow the position group to get closer to full strength faster than expected, however, so it's unclear what might be left over for McKenzie, even in a favorable matchup against Atlanta.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Career day in larger role

    McKenzie caught 11 of 12 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 33-21 win over the Patriots. He also rushed once for minus-1 yard.

    McKenzie hadn't been targeted more than three times in a game this season coming in but thrived in a larger role with both Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He opened the scoring with a three-yard touchdown reception and hauled in a 28-yard pass to set up a fourth-quarter Devin Singletary touchdown en route to career highs in targets, catches and receiving yards. Davis has already been ruled out for the team's Week 17 matchup with the Falcons, but Beasley could be back for that one. Either way, McKenzie should retain a prominent role in the game plan against the beatable Atlanta secondary after this breakout performance.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Replacing Beasley this week

    McKenzie figures to replace Cole Beasley (illness) as Buffalo's primary slot receiver Sunday against the Patriots, Chris Brown of the team's official website reports.

    Gabriel Davis (illness) will also miss the contest, while Emmanuel Sanders is returning from a one-week absence due to a knee injury. McKenzie was impressive in a limited role last season with a 30-282-5 receiving line on 34 targets, but he's been much quieter this year with just 11 targets and 38 receiving yards in 12 games, limiting the fantasy appeal in a difficult matchup with New England. Other candidates for added playing time without Beasley/Davis include WR Jake Kumerow, No. 2 Tommy Sweeney and H-back Reggie Gilliam.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Inactive for Monday Night Football

    McKenzie (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's matchup with the Patriots.

    McKenzie will be a healthy scratch for the second straight game. The 5-foot-8 wideout doesn't play much on offense, but with Marquez Stevenson (coach's decision) also inactive Monday, it's unclear what the Bills plan to do for return men against the Patriots.

  • Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Healthy scratch Thursday

    McKenzie (coach's decision) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Saints.

    McKenzie played just nine offensive snaps in last week's loss to the Colts, and he wasn't targeted in the contest. Jake Kumerow could see a slight uptick in playing time Thursday.
