WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Bills have signed Isaiah McKenzie to a two-year deal.

McKenzie became a big-time factor down the stretch in 2021, and they’re keeping him ahead of free agency. Wide receiver should still be a need this offseason, but Gabriel Davis and McKenzie is a strong duo behind Stefon Diggs.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie has re-signed with the Bills.

McKenzie is a great real-life piece for Buffalo as a versatile player that can contribute both offensively and on special teams. That said, he doesn't project to carry reliable fantasy value behind Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley, Emmanuel Sanders, and Gabriel Davis.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Bills are re-signing Isaiah McKenzie.

McKenzie wasn't tendered as a restricted free agent by Buffalo, but the Bills wanted to bring him back after he tested the open market. The speedy receiver will chip in on offense and on special teams, but he's does not need to be held in standard-sized dynasty leagues.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Bills are not tendering Isaiah McKenzie.

McKenzie chipped in on offense for Buffalo last season, but he'll become an unrestricted free agent. The speedy receiver should draw a good amount of interest on the open market.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie catches one pass in Week 16.

McKenzie gained eight yards on his lone Week 16 reception. McKenzie was evaluated for a concussion during the game, but thankfully he returned and appears to be OK. He's a better real-life contributor than fantasy asset for now.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie has been cleared to return to today's game.

McKenzie was evaluated for a concussion in the first half but he's now back in the second half.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie is being evaluated for a head injury.

McKenzie was carted to the locker room, which probably isn't a good sign. Hopefully he's OK and can return to today's game.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie caught six passes for 53 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

He also rushed once for four yards. McKenzie has emerged as Buffalo's slot receiver this month, showing a good connection with Josh Allen. The former fifth-round pick of the Broncos is worth considering in deeper PPR leagues next week against the Patriots.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie (leg) has returned for the Bills.

The Bills didn't officially give an update on McKenzie, but he's back in the game for them as they look to get a home win over the Lions.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie (leg) is questionable to return against the Lions.

We'll update you as more information becomes available on McKenzie's status.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie scores in Bills' loss.

McKenzie caught four passes for 47 yards and a touchdown along with four carries for 22 yards and a touchdown against the Jets. The Bills are doing a good job of using the explosive second-year receiver, but he's not a recommended fantasy option in standard-sized leagues yet.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isiah McKenzie catches four passes in Week 13.

McKenzie gained 46 yards on his four receptions (four targets) against the Dolphins, but he also lost a fumble in the game. It's good to see the second-year receiver involved on offense, but he's not a recommended fantasy option yet.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie scores in Week 12 win.

McKenzie caught two passes for 11 yards, also adding two carries for eight yards and a touchdown. The score came on an end-around in the first quarter from six yards away, and it was good to see the 2017 fifth-round pick of the Broncos find the end zone for the first time in his career. McKenzie won't be a recommended fantasy next week against Miami.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie gets four offensive touches in first game as a Bill.

McKenzie, a 2017 fifth-round pick of the Broncos, played well in his first game with Buffalo, carrying three times for 32 yards along with one reception for 14 yards. The Bills seem to want to get the ball into the dynamic receiver's hands, but he's not a recommended fantasy option yet.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Bills have claimed Isaiah McKenzie.

The 2017 fifth-round pick of the Broncos lands in a good spot with a Bills team that basically has a wide-open depth chart with likely no one locked into a roster spot for next season. McKenzie will look to carve out a role in Buffalo and stick with the team long-term.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Broncos promoted Isaiah McKenzie to the active roster.

The 2017 fifth-round pick might step in as the team's primary punt returner with DaeSean Hamilton battling a knee injury. McKenzie is not a recommended fantasy option, but he'll look to make some big plays for his team this Sunday against the Chiefs.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Broncos waived Isaiah McKenzie.

McKenzie was selected in the third round of last year’s draft, but the writing was basically on the wall after the team drafted Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton this year. McKenzie will likely land with another team soon.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie catches one pass in Week 17 loss.

It went for seven yards. McKenzie has trouble holding onto the ball as a rookie with six fumbles (two lost), and he caught just four passes for 29 yards in 11 appearances. He has talent, but the 22-year-old needs to show better ball security next summer.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie catches one pass in Week 16.

McKenzie gained eight yards on his lone reception, but he unfortunately made the mistake of staying in bounds to end the first half. The rookie receiver is working through some things and isn't a fantasy option yet.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie catches one pass versus Philadelphia

The speedy rookie receiver gained 14 yards on his lone reception, and he added a nice 44-yard punt return that he nearly took all the way. McKenzie is just a dynasty league fantasy option at the moment.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie fumbles punt in Week 8.

McKenzie fumbled a punt that Kansas City recovers, and then he later returned a punt and was hold the ball like a loaf of bread but thankfully held on. The rookie receiver didn't catch his lone target on offense, and he's off the fantasy radar right now—though he's worth holding onto in dynasty leagues as a potential long-term deep threat for Denver.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Rookie receiver Isaiah McKenzie has an ankle sprain.

Broncos head coach Vance Joseph said he won’t play on Sunday against the Chargers. It sounds like a similar situation to teammate Emmanuel Sanders, and McKenzie is considered week-to-week.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie leaves game with lower right leg injury.

McKenzie went up for a deep pass in the fourth quarter and came down with a bad ankle twist. The rookie receiver was visibly in pain and was carted off the field. He had one reception for no yards before leaving and struggled on punt returns, gaining five yards on his three returns including a fumble that he recovered. It looks like this injury could keep McKenzie out for a while.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

Isaiah McKenzie catches 47-yard touchdown in first preseason game.

Not a bad debut for the rookie, who caught his touchdown in the fourth quarter. It was his only reception of the game, but he made it count. McKenzie is looking to be a year-one contributor to the Broncos.

Isaiah McKenzie | Bills WR

The Broncos select Georgia receiver Isaiah McKenzie with the 172nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

McKenzie is an electric player that had his best season on offense as a junior, when he caught 44 passes for 633 yards and seven touchdowns. McKenzie also is a big contributor as a returner, scoring six return touchdowns in his three seasons at Georgia. He'll look to step right in as a returner for the Broncos as a rookie, with the potential to help out on offense too.
