The Buffalo Bills struggled on offense in 2018, but there is some hope in 2019 at the skill positions based on early 2019 fantasy football rankings.
Those who do play fantasy football know the preparation for next season can never start too early.
And for Buffalo Bills fans who play, it is never too early to look at the Bills roster and determine if there are any players worthy of selecting in 2019.
NFL.com’s Michael Fabiano recently released his initial top 200 fantasy players in 2019 list. It is a list that will keep changing, especially once the draft takes place, but for now the Bills have four players on the list.
LeSean McCoy shows up first at No. 76 overall, ranked as the No. 32 running back in the league. That may be a bit generous after his 2018 season, but that can be looked at as an outlier for now.
Robert Foster is next at No. 127 overall and the No. 51 wide receiver. This is cool to see considering he didn’t really get going until the end of the season. It also means fans outside of Buffalo will get to know Foster more once they have him on their fantasy rosters.
Up next is Zay Jones at No. 147 overall. The list has Jones as a RB, so I’m guessing that is a mistake that will be fixed. I personally have Jones on a dynasty roster and he has put up some solid weeks. The obvious problem has been consistency.
For those questioning my loyalty, I have Jones and Foster on my dynasty fantasy team. I also have another Bills player.
That would be quarterback Josh Allen, who shows up at No. 169 overall and the No. 22 quarterback. He gets a nice boost up the rankings due to his rushing abilities, although the numbers may not be the same in 2019.
These are early rankings, but the four players mentioned should be taken in most fantasy drafts this year. McCoy could even end up being a bargain pick if he has a turnaround season.
The Bills could also add a player or two to this list with a big splash in free agency.
