Fri, 27 Dec 2013 09:40:23 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (shoulder) will receive his second straight start in Week 17 against the New England Patriots because QB EJ Manuel's (knee) knee did not respond to treatment as the team hoped.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is capable of putting up QB2 numbers against the Patriots if you're looking for a replacement in league's that start two signal callers.

Bills | Holding out hope for Thaddeus Lewis

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 11:32:42 -0700

The Buffalo Bills are holding out hope that QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) can play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team plans on having him throw later Friday, Nov. 1, and work out again Saturday, Nov. 2, before making a final determination. "We're trying to hold out to see if Thad will be ready. We feel that if he is, we have the option to play him if he's healthy enough for us to win," head coach Doug Marrone said. "When you're dealing with muscle injuries, they kind of take it all the way up until game time. This one's a pain tolerance situation to see what he can do." QB Jeff Tuel has a better understanding of the team's offense and is favored to start over QB Matt Flynn if Lewis can't play.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis doubtful

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:57:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 1, but is listed as doubtful for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Jeff Tuel or Matt Flynn will start if Lewis doesn't play. Tuel received most of the first-team repetitions in practice this week in Lewis' absence. "It's a point of the soreness of the ribs," head coach Doug Marrone said. "Really just being able to turn and throw. That's the one thing that's holding him back. If he can get by that, then he will be able to play." Lewis worked on footwork ant timing Friday but did not throw any passes.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Tuel will start against KC. Steer clear of this situation if you can.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis still 50-50

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 11:42:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (rib, flu) did not practice again Thursday, Oct. 31, and he remains 50-50 to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Doug Marrone said the team hasn't decided if Lewis will be able to start. Both QBs Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn have taken first-team repetitions in practice this week, but Marrone "feels better" about going with Tuel if he has to.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Lewis suits up, staying away from the Buffalo QB situation this week if probably the safest route to take.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis 50-50 to return to practice

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 23:10:01 -0700

Updating a previous item, Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone said QB Thaddeus Lewis' (ribs) chances of returning to practice this week are 50-50, which would seem to indicate his chances of playing are in serious jeopardy. Marrone said that right now, if Lewis can't play, QB Jeff Tuel would probably be the starter, but only because he's been here longer than QB Matt Flynn. Flynn, however, does have NFL experience, so Marrone could also opt to go that way and disregard Tuel's advantage in regards to knowing the offense.

Fantasy Tip: This QB situation is a mess. If you have backups, it is best to avoid the Bills altogether against Kansas City. If you are counting on Buffalo to help, be advised this decision could go down to the wire.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis still expected to play

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 17:59:15 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (illness, ribs) is expected to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs despite missing practice due to illness and an injury to his ribs, according to a league source. It is uncertain whether he'll be able to practice Thursday, Oct. 31.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis ill

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:24:20 -0700

In addition to Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (rib, flu) dealing with a rib contusion, he's also dealing with a "flu virus." Head coach Doug Marrone said Lewis is 50-50 to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QBs Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn split first-team repetitions in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. "Coach Marrone walked into the room and said 'It could be anybody. We don't know,'" Tuel said. "We know as much as you do." Marrone will evaluate Lewis' chances to start later this week, but it appears as though he's leaning toward going with Tuel if Lewis can't play.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever winds up starting against the Chiefs should be avoided for fantasy football lineups unless you're truly desperate in leagues where you start two quarterbacks.

Bills | Jeff Tuel taking first-team snaps

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:41:10 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel is taking the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, with QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) not participating. QB EJ Manuel (knee) was dressed for practice but is not expected to be an option in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QB Matt Flynn would back up Tuel if Lewis is unable to play.

Fantasy Tip: Tuel is not an option for fantasy football lineups, especially going up against the Chiefs, one of the best defenses in all of football.

Bills | Robert Woods has gone quiet

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 16:03:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Robert Woods developed some nice chemistry with QB EJ Manuel early in the season, but his production has dropped since QB Thaddeus Lewis has taken over for the injured Manuel. "I think his production numbers are down," head coach Doug Marrone said. "But not his playing time. He's playing more than anybody." Woods has played in 565 of the team's 592 offensive snaps this year. Marrone suggested that opposing defenses may be paying more attention to Woods now.

Fantasy Tip: A drop in production was expected going from Manuel to Lewis throwing Woods the football. If the team targets Woods more often going forward, as he suggests, his production could be back on the rise. However, for now, consider Woods more of a flex play in deeper leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis said he has been working on building chemistry with WR Stevie Johnson by watching film with Johnson. "When he's out here making moves, running routes, once you get the timing with somebody on the field, it's different than just throwing the ball," Lewis said. "Now, we got a little game experience. Now we have the opportunity to watch film together and talk about some things it will get better as we go."

Bills | EJ Manuel expected to miss 4-6 more weeks

Wed, 16 Oct 2013 11:09:24 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB EJ Manuel (knee) will miss four to six more weeks unless he suffers a setback.

Fantasy Tip: With Manuel expected to miss several more weeks, Thaddeus Lewis likely will be the starting quarterback until Manuel returns. Lewis probably is nothing more than a bye week replacement for most fantasy owners in deeper leagues. Manuel owners can consider dropping him because of the time he is expected to miss.

Bills | EJ Manuel ahead of schedule

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 12:38:41 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB EJ Manuel (knee) is "ahead of schedule" in his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: We're not exactly sure what this means just yet, but keep tabs on Manuel's practice status in the next few weeks. Thaddeus Lewis looked good in his debut in Week 6, so he should continue to start in Manuel's absence.

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said he has been impressed with QB Thaddeus Lewis' knowledge of the playbook. "I was blown away when I first started talking to him," Hackett said. "I started asking him all these questions, and he knew the answers. I said, 'How'd you know all this stuff? He said, 'Well coach, this is my job. I'm learning it just like I'm the starter.'" Hackett is confident that Lewis will be able to run the full offensive playbook.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis expects to have chemistry with WRs

Thu, 10 Oct 2013 17:48:25 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis said he expects to be in sync with the wide receivers Week 6 because he has been able to work with them during practice this week. "It's easy when you practice," Lewis said. "Now if I had to come in, like the three days I had in preseason, and just had to play and didn't get any full speed reps, that would be difficult. But with three days of practice, you pretty much get the timing with the guys and (Wednesday) we had a good day."
