Bills' Mike Tolbert: May spell McCoy on some passing downs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert could have a role on passing downs, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

The Bills signed Tolbert and fellow fullback Patrick DiMarco at the beginning of free agency, with the latter profiling as a traditional lead blocker, while the former figures to operate more like a specialized backup tailback. Tolbert isn't quick or shifty enough to justify a high volume of carries, but he could be useful for passing downs and short-yardage situations, offering an unusual mix of size, receiving skills and pass-blocking ability. In the event of a LeSean McCoy injury, the Bills likely would turn to Jonathan Williams as the primary ballcarrier, with Tolbert then handling most of the passing-down work.

Bills' T.J. Yates: Winning weak battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yates is expected to hit training camp as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor and ahead of Nathan Peterman and Cardale Jones, The Buffalo News reports.

Reportedly, only Taylor has looked ready to run Rick Dennison's offense entering the season. That's been the case all along, but the Bills are hoping someone will step up and give the coaching staff some comfort should Taylor suffer an injury. So far that's not really happening, but Yates has more experience as a pro and also has experience with Dennison, putting him in the second spot in the pecking order for now, though the situation could remain fluid as the youngsters behind him get more chances.

Bills' Andre Holmes: Moving up crowded latter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holmes, who was already coming off a strong set of OTAs, continued to impress the coaching staff at last week's minicamp, The Buffalo News reports. "I'll tell you the guy that's really stood out has been Andre," coach Sean McDermott said. "He's done a phenomenal job, not only on offense, but also special teams. Very solid performer day to day, consistent and just really - that's been a nice pickup for us so far and I really appreciate his leadership."

It looks like it's going to be Holmes and rookie Zay Jones battling it out for the No. 2 spot next to Sammy Watkins. Jones offers more upside, but some seem to be expecting a bit much immediately from a rookie -- one that's already been injured this spring -- that's never played an NFL down. Holmes doesn't exactly have an eye-popping resume, but he did occasionally produce some meaningful numbers with the Raiders (he posted a 47/693/4 line in 2016), and at 6-4 and 210 pounds offers the best size of any Bills receiver in line to receive regular playing time.

Bills' Tre'Davious White: Making early mark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White, the team's first-round pick in May has made a strong impression on the new coaching staff, The Buffalo News reports. "He's made plays on the football, he's shown up in that regard in a positive light, and when I look out there I'm looking at a player that, he plays like a second- or third-year player at this point," coach Sean McDermott said Thursday.

Ronald Darby will definitely be one of the cornerback starters, but based on White getting mostly first-team reps at minicamp and the praise coming from his coaching staff, he probably has a leg up over Kevin Seymour for the other starting spot.

Bills' Eric Wood: Almost fully healed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wood believes he'll be completely recovered from his broken leg in time for training camp, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Wood missed one OTA practice due to soreness in his leg, but short of that he's faced no setbacks in his return to practices. While he isn't yet at full health, he anticipates being back without any restrictions by late July, when training camp begins.
