2019 Fantasy Outlook
An undrafted rookie out of Tennessee, Croom spent the 2017 season on the Bills' practice squad before being elevated to the 53-man roster in 2018. He managed to log playing time in 15 contests last season, including three starts, en route to securing 22 receptions for 259 yards and a TD. Though Charles Clay signed with Arizona after he was released in February, the Bills subsequently added veterans Tyler Kroft and Lee Smith, as well as third-round pick Dawson Knox and seventh-round pick Tommy Sweeney. Following the moves, Croom's role with the team was uncertain, despite the potential he displayed last season as a pass catcher. With Kroft having suffered a broken foot during OTAs, Croom now has a better chance of both sticking around and potentially making an early-season impact. Read Past Outlooks

Croom's teammate Tyler Kroft broke his foot during Monday's OTA session and will be sidelined for 3-to-4 months following surgery.
ANALYSIS
Croom actually entered the offseason as the Bills' top tight end, though you could also say he was the only tight end under contract. Then the Bills beefed up their corps by signing Kroft and Lee Smith in free agency, while drafting Dawson Knox in the third round. That may have bumped Croom -- who finished 2018 with a 22/259/1 line -- all the way to fourth, though with Kroft's injury being significant, he'll have extra chances to stake his claim toward meaningful playing time, or at least a roster spot.
