2019 Fantasy Outlook
As a rookie, McCloud, a sixth-rounder out of Clemson, caught five of just six targets for 36 yards over the course of 10 games in 2018. He also returned one kickoff for 18 yards and four punts for 20 yards. Given the Bills' wideout woes last season, the team signed John Brown and Cole Beasley in free agency, moves that don't favor McCloud's chances of moving up the depth chart. With Zay Jones and Robert Foster still in the mix, McCloud will need a break or two to go his way before he comes close to approaching fantasy relevance. Read Past Outlooks

McCloud, who caught only five balls for 36 yards in an injury-plagued rookie season, has been impressive throughout training camp and continues to earn praise from coach Sean McDermott and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "I think Ray-Ray McCloud has had a real nice training camp to this point, just with effort and doing the things we expect our wide receivers to do," McDermott said. "You've got to get open, you've got to get separation and you've got to catch the football."
ANALYSIS
The Bills' first four receiving spots were already set before camp began, while Andre Roberts has a clear edge on the fifth one due to his standout return abilities. If the Bills keep a sixth receiver, it'll be a wide-open battle with a host of candidates. McCloud seems to be picking up a knack for slot work, so that could be his angle to make the squad over other young receivers such as Isaiah McKenzie, Duke Williams, Victor Bolden, Cam Phillips, David Sills and Nick Easley.

Dave McKay explores how the Bills offense will fare in 2018, depending on who is under center.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
McCloud, who was selected in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, is entering a crowded wideout corps that lacks explosive talents. His college stat line doesn't scream that he'll be that guy, however, with just four receiving touchdowns in three years. McCloud will serve as a depth asset if he makes the team.
