1. ESPN offers this fantasy football projection for the Bills in 2021

Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs both finished the 2020 season in the top five for fantasy points scored at their respective positions. Allen also won the Draft Kings 2020 Fantasy Player of the Year award at NFL Honors back in February. For the 2021 season, Allen and the Bills wide receivers should be highly coveted in all fantasy football drafts as they have another year to grow in Brian Daboll's system. ESPN writer Mike Clay put out his list of over 50 observations that he learned while doing his 2021 fantasy football projections. In one of his points, he laid out the fantasy value of the Bills receiving corps for this upcoming season.

8. The Bills operated the league's No. 2 pass-heaviest offense, ranked first in three-plus WR sets (91%) and second in four-plus WR sets (17%) last season. John Brown is out, and Emmanuel Sanders is in, which sets up the depth chart as Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Sanders, Gabriel Davis and Isaiah McKenzie. All five will see plenty of work, with Diggs and Beasley your top fantasy bets. Sanders' signing is a bump in the road for Davis' sleeper appeal, but keep in mind that he played 68% of the snaps and handled 19% of the team's air yards as a fourth-round rookie.

2. Stefon Diggs has joined the Jordan family

It was announced on April 2 that Stefon Diggs signed an endorsement deal with the Jordan Brand. He became the latest NFL player to join the Jumpman's football roster. He joins other NFL stars like Davante Adams, Cameron Jordan, Jarvis Landry, Tyrann Mathieu and Michael Thomas as a part of the Jordan Brand family. Throughout his NFL career, Diggs has taken pride in the cleats he wears and how he customizes them. He will now get to work with the Jordan Brand on coming up with designs for the 2021 season. In the latest episode of B/R Kicks: Unboxed, Diggs unboxes the upcoming Summer 2021 collection and talks about what the Jordan Brand represents and what it means to him. 

"Everybody knows Michael Jordan, everybody knows what he represents, as a player and as a person," Diggs said. "It's something that I'm lucky to be a part of and I'm blessed to be a part of. It's something I've always wanted like growing up, everybody's a big Jordan guy. Especially as kids we loved him growing up, so as an adult, I'm happy I can live out those childhood dreams."

3. NFL.com's breakdown of the Bills in their AFC East Roster Reset

NFL.com came out with their annual Roster Reset series and Around the NFL writer, Nick Shook examined the current status of all four teams in the AFC East. He went through and listed the team's biggest addition, biggest loss, the Bills top draft priority and his final thoughts. To read through all of what he said about the Bills and the other three teams in the AFC East, click here. Below are Shook's final thoughts about where the Bills stand in the division and the league so far this offseason.

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Dawson Knox has been a pleasant occasional contributor for Buffalo, but tight end still isn't a significant position of impact for the Bills, so I expect they'll try to improve that in the draft, just maybe not in the first round. The rest isn't that complicated: Buffalo is a legitimate Super Bowl contender that went ice cold at the worst time in Kansas City this past January and will get another chance to make a run at a conference title. The Bills need to be a little better defensively, but with another season of the highly productive combination of Josh Allen and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, their arrow remains firmly pointed upward.
