Fantasy impact of the Bills 2021 NFL Draft selections

We take a look at the fantasy football impact of the Buffalo Bills’ selections in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Buffalo Bills are now the top team in the AFC East and easily a contender to go to the Super Bowl after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the conference championship game last season. Beefing up their own passing attack while also adding help to their secondary is likely in the cards, as they prepare for a possible rematch with the Chiefs.

The Bills pass catchers aren’t weak, with Stefon Diggs being one of the best in the league, but another young receiver could help. Emmanuel Sanders, Cole Beasley and Dawson Knox are good, but this is a good wide receiver group to select from in the draft and if someone they love falls to No. 30, I could see them pounce. But the same can be said for a cornerback or edge rusher. I like the talent at wide receiver more, but they should have options.

Buffalo Bills 2021 Draft selections

No. 30: Gregory Rousseau, DE
No. 61: Carlos Basham, DE
No. 93: Spencer Brown, OT
No. 161: Tommy Doyle, OT
No. 203: Marquez Stevenson, WR
No. 212: Damar Hamlin, S
No. 213: Rachad Wildgoose, CB
No. 236: Jack Anderson, OG

Fantasy football impact

The Bills have a pretty stacked receiving corps led by Stefon Diggs. Buffalo also has Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley, plus young, developing wideouts in Gabriel Davis and Isaiah Hodgins. So Stevenson doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere in the immediate future. The Houston product has some value as a kick returner, and his long-term scope would be big play threat in a few years if there’s turnover in Buffalo.
