2016 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on May-06-2016 by Shawn Childs


Clay had had a tough time replicating his success in 2013 when he caught 69 balls for 759 yards and six TDs on 102 targets over the past two seasons. He struggled with a knee issue in 2014 limiting his explosiveness and upside. His game appeared to be back on the uptick after catching 31 passes for 324 yards and two TDs on 45 targets after six games last year. Charles lost his value in the Bills' offense when Watkins returned healthy leading to only 21 catches for 204 yards and two TDs on 32 targets in his next seven games. In Week 14, he suffered a back injury that cost him the rest of the 2015 season. Last year Buffalo threw only 103 passes to the TE for 719 yards on 66 catches with three TDs. Even with 90 percent of the TE production, Clay would only be in line for 60 catches for 650 yards and minimal TDs. He'll start the year at age 29 with back-to-back season with health limiting his opportunity. At best, Charles is a backup Fantasy TE with more risk than reward.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
15.05 Adam Ronis - With the lack of receivers in Buffalo, Clay should see more targets and is a fine TE2.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
16.10 Roto Experts - Joe Gallina - Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins’ status is still up in the air, and they want to get Clay more involved in their offense. I also needed another tight end since both Fleener and Thomas are on a bye in Week 5!
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
14.09 Scout Fantasy - Corey Parson - A favorite late round tight end flier in PPR leagues, Clay will get an uptick in targets and receptions in 2016 expect 65 to 70 grabs
