Fighting Chance's 2021 NFL Draft Recap: Buffalo Bills
The 2021 NFL Draft dust is now starting to settle now that we've got each pick in stone after months (and I do mean MONTHS) of speculation, scrutiny, and an endless amount of social media chattering and shouting into the void. We're ready for a whole new wave of scrutiny with a layer of optimism or pessimism depending on each team's selection.
Today, we tackle the Buffalo Bills, so let's see what they did in this year's NFL Draft!
Who the Bills selected:
R1: Gregory Rousseau, DE, Miami
R2: Carlos Basham Jr., DE, Wake Forest
R3: Spencer Brown, OT, Northern Iowa
R5: Tommy Doyle, OT, Miami (OH)
R6: Marquez Stevenson, WR, Houston
R6: Damar Hamlin, S, Pittsburgh
R6: Rachad Wildgoose, CB, Wisconsin
R7: Jack Anderson, OL, Texas Tech
The Fantasy Impact:
The Buffalo Bills have built their roster from the inside out and continued to fortify both the offensive and defensive lines in the 2021 NFL Draft, spending only one pick on a skill position player, Houston wide receiver Marquez Stevenson. Stevenson faces an uphill battle for fantasy-worthy snaps, however, as he's behind several players on the depth chart, but his blazing speed should play well in the return game. He's still raw as a receiver and has to refine his route tree, but that doesn't help anybody in fantasy. He's a taxi squad addition to your dynasty roster at best.
The Bottom Line:
Stevenson can be ignored in seasonal formats as he has a remote chance to return value in 2021.
