Bills' Robert Foster: Staying with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster has re-signed with the Bills, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

The 2018 UDFA was an exclusive rights free agent, a designation that wouldn't allow him to sign with a new team unless the Bills failed to extend a minimum salary tender. Foster failed to build upon his promising rookie season, catching just three of 18 targets for 64 yards in 2019. A toe injury may have been part of the problem, but it also seemed he was simply outplayed by all of John Brown, Cole Beasley, Duke Williams and Isaiah McKenzie. The Bills might allow Foster to compete for a top-three job in 2020 if he bounces back with a strong showing at the offseason program.

Bills' Robert Foster: Disappointing sophomore campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster finished the 2019 season with just three catches on 18 targets for 64 yards and no touchdowns.

After Foster served as a great surprise as an undrafted rookie out of Alabama in 2018, his follow-up campaign was a complete disappointment, especially with the No. 3 and No. 4 wideout roles being up for grabs most of the season. The 64 yards on 219 offensive snaps is terrible, the catch-to-target ratio is brutal for any NFL wideout, and the fact that a guy with his speed and big-play potential couldn't hit on even one big strike was a major letdown. With the Bills actively looking to beef up the position this offseason and starters John Brown and Cole Beasley remaining under contract, Foster has his offseason work cut out for him if he's going to stick with the team, or even in the NFL for that matter.

Bills' Robert Foster: Healthy inactive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's contest against the Texans.

The Bills opted to activate Duke Williams for the pivotal contest, relegating Foster to the bench. The speedy playmaker has essentially been bypassed by Williams on the depth chart, and he has failed to log a reception in each of the last four games.

Bills' Robert Foster: Empty playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster played 63 of 64 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Jets, catching none of his four targets.

For a guy that came out of nowhere to post a 27-541-3 line last season as an undrafted rookie, Foster's second-year production has been pathetic. He finishes the regular season with just three catches on 18 targets for 64 yards and no scores and hasn't caught a pass since Week 13 despite playing in each game since. There's a shot that Duke Williams -- who posted six catches for 108 yards Sunday -- may have done enough to pass Foster on the depth chart when the Bills decide who suits up for their playoff game this weekend in Houston.

Bills' Robert Foster: Added opportunities on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster is in line for added opportunities Sunday against the Jets, with both John Brown and Cole Beasley inactive, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

The Bills, who are locked into the AFC's No. 5 playoff seed, sat several key players Sunday, which frees up added looks for Foster, who Buscaglia predicts will fill in for Brown. Meanwhile, Isaiah McKenzie figures to sub for Beasley, with Duke Williams filling McKenzie's usual role.

Bills' Robert Foster: Catchless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was unable to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 24-17 loss to New England.

Foster's catchless streak increased to three games Sunday. Unlike Week 15, the Alabama product saw the field on offense Sunday and was targeted on a deep heave by Josh Allen late in the fourth quarter. It didn't translate to the stat sheet, but that might change Sunday against the Jets. The Bills are locked into the fifth seed and may rest their starters in favor of down-roster players like Foster.

Bills' Robert Foster: Plays exclusively on special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster did not record an offensive snap during Sunday's 17-10 win over Pittsburgh.

Foster had a catch of at least 20 yards in three straight games from Weeks 11 through 13, but -- after not linking up with Josh Allen in Week 14 -- Foster was limited to special teams Sunday. He continues to slide behind Isaiah McKenzie on the depth chart in a pass offense that isn't exactly consistent. He shouldn't be on your radar for Saturday's matchup against New England's second-ranked pass defense.

Bills' Robert Foster: Out of sync with Josh Allen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was targeted four times during Sunday's 24-17 loss to Baltimore but did not record a catch.

Sunday's four targets marked a season high, but he and Josh Allen were unable to connect as Buffalo's offense was off-kilter for much of the game. Four of Foster's five touches this season have gone for at least 20 yards, highlighting his impressive big-play ability, but he isn't getting many opportunities. It's also worth noting that Isaiah McKenzie, who has been competing with Foster for the No. 3 WR job, finished with three catches on five targets Sunday. Next up is a matchup against Pittsburgh's fifth-ranked pass defense.

Bills' Robert Foster: Sees increased work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster caught one of two targets for 20 yards during Thursday's win over the Cowboys.

The 25-year-old was considered questionable due to a hamstring injury but ended up playing 28 offensive snaps, his highest snap total of the season. Foster could see an increased role going forward, since he and Isaiah McKenzie split snaps as the Bills' No. 3 wide receiver in Dallas, per Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo.

Bills' Robert Foster: Suits ups Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Cowboys, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Foster -- who has caught just two passes for 44 yards in eight games to date -- will give it a go Thursday, but he's off the fantasy radar these days, while slotting in behind John Brown, Cole Beasley and Isaiah McKenzie on the Bills' wide receiver depth chart.

Bills' Robert Foster: Listed as questioanble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Cowboys.

Foster is off the fantasy radar these days, with just two catches for 44 yards in eight games to date. The 25-year-old caught 27 passes for 541 yards and three scores in 13 games last season, but he won't have an opportunity to replicate those numbers while he currently slots in behind John Brown, Cole Beasley and Isaiah McKenzie on the Bills' depth chart.

Bills' Robert Foster: Officially limited Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Tuesday.

Foster kicked off Week 13 prep as a DNP on Monday's estimated injury report, so his upgrade to some activity is a step in the right direction. He'll look to progress further Wednesday with an eye on suiting up for Thursday's game at Dallas. If he's unable to play, Andre Roberts and even Duke Williams would be in line for some work on offense.

Bills' Robert Foster: Upgraded to limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) is expected to practice on a limited basis Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

That's an improvement from his DNP on the practice estimation from Monday's walkthrough, following Foster's departure during Sunday's win over the Broncos. The fact that Foster's 1-24-0 line was his best total of the season tells you all you need to know about his value following last year's breakthrough rookie season, and the biggest fantasy implication his status for Thursday's game in Dallas would create is whether a potential absence would mean Duke Williams gets a chance to suit up again.

Bills' Robert Foster: DNP on Monday's estimate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate.

Foster suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday's win over the Bengals, and it seems unlikely he recovers on a short week for Thursday's matchup against the Cowboys. It's been a disappointing season for the Alabama product, as he's fallen into the No. 4 wideout role, catching just two passes for 44 yards a season after compiling 27 for 541 and three scores.

Bills' Robert Foster: Leaves Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (hamstring) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Broncos.

Hamstring injuries are tough with receivers, but Foster could try to stretch it out and attempt a return. If he's unable to shake the injury, Andre Roberts and Isaiah McKenzie would be in line to see an increase in snaps.

Bills' Robert Foster: Relegated to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster did not log an offensive snap during Sunday's 37-20 win over Miami.

Josh Allen had a career day against the Dolphins, but Foster had no hand in it after recording his first catch of the season in Week 10. In the seven games for which he has dressed, Sunday was the first time that Foster did not log at least seven offensive snaps. He shouldn't be on your fantasy radar, especially Sunday against Denver's top-five pass defense.

Bills' Robert Foster: Nabs first catch of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster caught a 20-yard pass on his only target of Sunday's 19-16 loss to Cleveland.

Foster set up Buffalo's first touchdown of the game early in the second quarter, finding a soft spot in front of his defender and making a 20-yard catch to bring Buffalo into the red zone. It was the Alabama product's first catch of 2019, as he has struggled to find opportunities and has recorded just one game with multiple targets (Week 2 against the Giants). John Brown and Cole Beasley continue to dominate looks from Josh Allen with a target share of 44.0 percent between them. Foster doesn't figure to expand his role much against a suddenly surging Dolphins squad that was left for dead earlier this season.

Bills' Robert Foster: Sees limited action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster suited up Sunday but only played seven snaps and did not catch his only target.

Any hope Foster might get in on the game plan with No. 3 receiver Duke Williams being made a healthy inactive didn't come into fruition, and Foster is still looking for his first catch in 2019. The man that burst into the scene as an undrafted rookie to average 20.0 yards per catch sits at a big fat zero halfway through the season. Even though the Bills may continue to rotate Foster, Williams and Isaiah McKenzie into their last two receiving spots, none of them comes with any value unless John Brown or Cole Beasley were to get sidelined for an extended period.

Bills' Robert Foster: Outside of game plan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was targeted once but didn't catch a pass in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

The second-year receiver is still looking for his first catch of the year after suiting up in four games and missing three others, simply awful production for a guy that came out of nowhere last season to post a 27-541-3 line in 13 games, especially when you consider Zay Jones recently got traded. Foster is at best the fourth WR option on the team, and with No. 5 Andre Roberts being a valuable return man, the former runs the risk of being benched again if the team wants to suit up Isaiah McKenzie for more change-of-pace plays. Foster is far off the fantasy radar.

Bills' Robert Foster: Returns to lineup in Week 8
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Foster is back in the mix after being inactive last week, but how much action he sees Sunday likely hinges on how well No. 3 wide receiver Duke Williams holds up, given that the latter has been dealing with a shoulder injury.
