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 have been given the heave-ho by the Bills, 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.
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.
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 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.
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 under center will make it tough to trust any member of Buffalo's offense against the Lions in Week 15.
Foster could serve as the No. 2 receiver following the departures of Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes 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."
Such is life in the NFL, as Foster was sitting on the practice squad less than a month ago. A few big games and a couple of teammate cuts later, he now looks like the No. 2 option for the Bills, at worst the No. 3 receiver. The Buffalo passing game is incredibly inconsistent, but with a strong-armed rookie throwing the speedy Foster the ball, we can see a few more big plays before season's end -- if you're in a position where you need to take chances.
