Dan Herron, RB, Bills
2015 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE
Herron was forced into action after RB Ahmad Bradshaw went down with an injury and RB Trent Richardson stunk up the building. Over the last six games of the regular season, Dan had 75 touches (12.5 per game) for 441 yards with one TD. His best opportunity came in the playoffs when Luck threw to him 23 times, which led to 20 catches for 128 yards. In addition, Herron had 45 rushes for 170 yards with two TDs. His success will lead to him earning some snaps early in 2015, but his skill-set doesn't have high upside. Herron wasn't great in pass blocking, so he isn't a lock to play on third downs. Overall, he has more downside than upside even with old man Gore as the lead back.
Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams has been ruled out for Week 5. He was put in the concussion protocol Monday night, did not practice this week and has not cleared the NFL's concussion protocol. He will not be out there Sunday.
With both LeSean McCoy and Williams out, Anthony Dixon will get the start. The team also signed Boom Herron this week and he is expected to see significant touches. While neither guy is very easy to trust, Dixon has to be considered the better option at this point. However, neither guy is a great option. Nonetheless, they could be sneaky good low-priced DFS plays. Other than that, Dixon is a desperation flex option.
