Playing mostly as a backup, Hughes has 25 tackles, two sacks, and a fumble recovery through six games.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hughes saw the field on 88 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday, though that was mostly because Manny Lawson got hurt and had to leave the game. (Lawson is expected to play this week in Miami). Hughes doesn't have much IDP value just yet, but it's also worth noting that Buffalo's defensive scheme seems to be much better suited for him than the one he played in for the Colts. He could be one to watch if injuries land him a starting spot, as he's acquired that decent stat line in just 59 percent of the team's defensive snaps this season.
The Bills have traded Kelvin Sheppard to the Colts in exchange for Hughes, the team's official site reports.

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

The former first round pick was traded to the Bills in the off-season. Looking to shed the 'bust' label, Hughes has a chance to start in a hybrid right end position in Mike Pettine's defense.

2012

Hughes, a 2010 first-round pick, has been a bust in his career and was almost released last season. However, the change to the 3-4 defense may revitalize him as he has skills as a pass rusher as an outside linebacker that were not utilized in the previous 4-3 scheme.

2010

Hughes is undersized, but has excellent pass-rushing skills. The Colts' will utilize him as a backup, but he could record a couple of sacks.
