Shines at OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-06-10

Claypool has been the Bills' "most consistent" wide receiver at OTAs, according to Matt Parrino of newyorkupstate.com.

It's perhaps not surprising that a 6-4 wideout with 4.42 speed and ample NFL experience looks good in non-contact practices, but it's nonetheless interesting to hear the word 'consistent' used in conjunction with Claypool. He fell out of favor with the Steelers in 2022 and the Bears in 2023, and while Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel complimented him on multiple occasions, Claypool caught only four passes in nine games after a trade to Miami last October. He'll turn 26 in July and has an interesting opportunity ahead, competing for snaps in a high-upside offense where only Khalil Shakir and Curtis Samuel seem assured of significant playing time at wide receiver. Claypool could even join those two as a regular presence in three-wide sets if his impressive work this spring continues into summer, but he'll have to hold off competition from Keon Coleman, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mack Hollins.

New competition in WR room

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-14

Claypool will have more competition to land a roster spot after the Bills signed Marquez Valdes-Scantling to a one-year deal Tuesday.

The Bills seem to be taking an approach of signing as many journeymen that have previously shown upside as they can this offseason, with a plan of seeing who can stick to join a room with highly touted rookie Keon Coleman and third-year man Khalil Shakir. For now, it looks like MVS, Claypool, Curtis Samuel and Mack Hollins (among others) will duke it out for positioning and even a roster spot after holding a firmer grasp on jobs earlier in their careers.

Links up with Buffalo

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-03

Claypool is signing a one-year contract with the Bills, Jonathan Jones of CBSSports.com reports.

Unable to make an impact in Chicago or Miami last season, Claypool now heads to his fourth NFL team for his fifth year in the league. It's about as good of a locale as he could've hoped for, as the Bills have a strong-armed franchise QB and questionable depth at WR. Claypool could perhaps serve as a deep threat off the bench even if his days as a starter are numbered.

Free agency looms

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Claypool secured four of seven targets for 26 yards across nine appearances with the Dolphins during the 2023 regular season. He also secured four of 14 targets for 51 yards and one score across four games with the Bears.

Claypool is coming off a disastrous 2023 campaign, having failed to put anything of note together with Miami after an early-season trade out of Chicago. He did contribute on special teams for 102 snaps with the Dolphins, and it's possible the team still has limited intrigue in his developmental upside, but at this stage in his career there are no guarantees Claypool draws any real interest on the free agent market. His four-year rookie contract ends this offseason.

Can't finish on deep TD

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Claypool failed to secure his only target during Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens.

Claypool was targeted in the end zone on a deep pass from Tua Tagovailoa (shoulder) late in the third quarter, but despite initially securing the ball he wasn't able to complete a catch. Reports about Claypool's performance in practice have picked up recently, but even with Jaylen Waddle (ankle) sidelined Sunday, the four-year veteran hasn't yet managed to make a splash in a Dolphins uniform. Pending Waddle's status, Claypool could see some offensive involvement again during Week 18's key crucial divisional matchup against the Bills.

Ready for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-01

Claypool (knee) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Commanders, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Claypool logged limited practice sessions both Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to practice without limitations Friday, and it now seems as if he's moved past his knee issue. The 2020 second-round pick has been inactive for four of the Dolphins' seven games since getting traded to Miami, and he'll at least be available for Sunday's contest.

Still working through injury

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-29

Claypool (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.

Claypool hasn't played since Week 9 with the injury and will likely head into the weekend questionable again. However, if he's able to ramp up his activity level Thursday or Friday, he could still suit up Sunday against the Commanders.

Inactive versus Jets

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Claypool (knee) is inactive for Friday's game against the Jets.

Claypool, who the Dolphins had listed as questionable for the contest, will sit this one out, but with just one catch for 15 yards on two targets in three games with Miami so far, the 2020 second-rounder is off the fantasy radar for now.

Questionable for Friday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-23

Claypool (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Jets, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.

Claypool has been listed as limited in practice ahead of the contest and his Week 12 status is unclear at this stage. That said, with just one catch for 15 yards on two targets in three games with the Dolphins to date, Claypool is off the fantasy radar for now.
