1. Devin Singletary continues to draw attention from NFL fantasy analysts

NFL.com senior fantasy analyst Michael Fabiano created a list of players who he thinks are smart to draft in fantasy football for the 2020 season — Fabiano says soon to be second-year-player Devin Singletary is someone to look into drafting for next season.

Devin Singletary, RB, Buffalo Bills: Singletary had a slow start to his rookie season due to injuries, but he had 20-plus touches four times in the second half and showed his skills as a top back. He also forced 22 broken tackles, which is pretty solid considering he missed four games. With Frank Gore slated to become a free agent, Singletary should have the top spot in Buffalo all to himself in 2020.

Singletary finished his rookie season with 775 rushing yards from 151 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per rush. Per fantasydata.com, Singletary averaged 9.9 fantasy points per game with a season high 20 fantasy points in Week 9 after he recorded 95 rushing yards, 45 receiving yards and one touchdown.

2. Another wide receiver to the Bills in this NFL mock draft

NFL media analyst Charley Casserly released his first 2020 NFL mock draft and like many others, Casserly has the Bills drafting a wide receiver with the 22nd pick.

Tee Higgins - WR

Buffalo needs to score more points, and I'm sure Josh Allen wouldn't mind having a big-bodied jump-ball specialist at his disposal.

Higgins is the clear favorite among mock drafts so far for the Bills. The junior receiver is 6-4 and 214 pounds — his height and skill set makes him an easy mock draft selection as the Bills could be looking for a taller receiver in the draft to complement John Brown and Cole Beasley.

3. Should the Bills target any of these receivers?

NFL.com analyst James Jones named ten wide receivers he thinks are worth pursing in free agency and the 2020 draft. His top two targets in free agency are receivers Amari Cooper and A.J. Green.

1) Amari Cooper, free agent

With the Dallas Cowboys focused primarily on keeping pending free agent Dak Prescott in the fold, it feels like we could see Amari Cooper hit the open market. If he does, expect teams to come running. Cooper, who's coming off the best season of his career, is a guy who would fit well in a lot of offenses. He's a big-bodied, physical No. 1 receiver and he's proven over five NFL seasons that he can be "the guy" who sparks an offense. He just needs to be on the field.

2) A.J. Green, free agent

When healthy, Green is one of the best at his position even at 32 years old (the age he'll be at the start of the 2020 season). In his last 16-game season (2017), he had 1,078 receiving yards and eight TDs. Teams in search of a WR1 would be foolish not to consider paying the seven-time Pro Bowler, especially if his recent injury history results in a lower market price than you'd expect for a player with his resume. I know some people are down on Green after he missed all of last season, but I'm confident he can still beat any cornerback in the game.

Green has been listed in several articles about what players the Bills should pursue in free agency. The top two draft prospects on the list are CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy.

4) CeeDee Lamb, draft prospect

The former Oklahoma star is widely labeled as the top receiver in this draft class, and I have to agree with that sentiment. He's far and away the best at his position. Just turn on his tape and you'll see how special he is. Lamb has the speed to run by defenders, strong hands and big-time playmaking ability.

5) Jerry Jeudy, draft prospect

The former Alabama wide receiver enters the draft with a lot of momentum coming off back-to-back 1,100-yard seasons. Jeudy will immediately demand respect from DBs because of his quickness off the line and top-end speed, along with his sound route running. Jeudy has the goods to be a top-10 pick and would certainly provide most offenses with Pro Bowl-caliber talent.

Several mock drafts have the Bills taking a wide receiver first, but Lamb and Jeudy will most likely be off the board before the Bills draft in the first round with the No. 22 pick. Most mocks have Lamb and Jeudy being picked in the top 15 of the 2020 NFL Draft.
