Buffalo Bills roster updates from training camp

NFL training camp is underway and rosters will be pared down to the 53-player maximum. We’ll break down the moves as the Buffalo Bills sort out their roster decisions.

NFL training camp is under way and that means news will start flowing from each team. How that news will be distributed in the time of Covid-19 restrictions is still to be seen, but news will get out one way or the other. We’ll take that news and give you our fantasy and betting analysis. And that news and analysis, including roster moves, injuries, all the way to hype videos, will be disseminated right here, on this very page for the Buffalo Bills.

The Bills biggest offseason move was acquiring WR Stefon Diggs from the Bills. His presence will shore up Josh Allen’s receivers, giving the quarterback one of the better groups in the league. With the Patriots losing Tom Brady, multiple free agents, and Covid-19 opt outs, the Bills are many pundits favorites to win the AFC East.

Player News

High fantasy/betting impact

* Activated WR Cole Beasley from NFI list — August 12

This is not shocking news, but it’s still valuable for Josh Allen and the passing game. The Bills went all-in when they traded for Stefon Diggs, but Beasley will be critical alongside John Brown.

Low fantasy/betting impact

* Star Lotulelei opted out for the 2020 season. — July 28

Lotulelei isn’t the player he once was, but his absence will hurt the Bills defensive line and run stopping depth.

* Signed DT Tanzel Smart, Justin Zimmer — August 16

* Signed P Lac Edwards — August 19
