Bills | All four Buffalo QBs to get first-team reps

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 13:06:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Jeff Tuel and Tyrod Taylor will all receive first-team repetitions in workouts, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills possess one of the least exciting quarterback groups in all the NFL. Manuel and Cassel are the favorite heading into the offseaon. Whoever wins the starting job will have minimal fantasy value, however.

Bills | No leader for BUF quarterback job

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 10:06:36 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel will receive a fair shot to win the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "I'm lining them up to literally have a competition for the position," Ryan said. "People will say, 'Well, is this guy ahead of the other?' There's going to be assumptions, but the great thing is, let it play out. Give both guys the opportunity and then at the end of the day, the cream will rise to the top. It usually does." Ryan did not rule out the possibility of QB Tyrod Taylor winning the job.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel and Cassel likely will be the two main candidates for the job and will compete for the job during training camp. The winner of the job should be seen as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Bills | Rex Ryan expects competition at QB

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:46:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor will compete for the starting quarterback job during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel and Cassel appear to be the most likely candidates to win the starting job, but Taylor could have a shot depending on his work in the offense. Owners should consider whoever wins the starting job as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season.

Bills | EJ Manuel to have competition

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:44:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel is not locked in as the starting quarterback. Head coach Rex Ryan said Friday, March 20, that the quarterback competition will be open. "It's a competition and whoever earns the job will be the guy that's out there," Ryan said. "We have some talented guys and we'll see what happens. You bring in a veteran like (QB Matt Cassel). He's done some pretty good things in this league. He's got that veteran presence about him. With EJ back there just going into his third year I really believe EJ is going to improve with his fundamentals having (QB coach David Lee) here."

Fantasy Tip: The winner of the three-way battle between EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor will be a fantasy backup at best, but they might be worth using in FantasyScore when the matchup is a favorable one.

Bills | EJ Manuel still Bills' top QB option

Sat, 28 Feb 2015 11:16:58 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel still seems to be the No. 1 option at quarterback, for now, with Josh McCown heading to the Cleveland Browns. Buffalo could still add a quarterback in free agency or the draft.

Fantasy Tip: There's still no guarantee that Manuel will be the starting quarterback once the season begins as the Bills are indeed expected to be in the quarterback market this offseason. If he does start, Manuel should be considered no more than a fantasy backup.

Bills | Coach excited about EJ Manuel

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 23:59:11 -0800

Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan is excited about QB EJ Manuel, as he told reporters Manuel "has some potential", but the club is still looking for a long-term signal caller.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel's value goes down as long as the Bills search for a new quarterback continues. Right now, he ranks no higher than a QB3 in most leagues. In short, not a solid starter and not even a quality backup for your roster.

Bills | QB the No. 1 priority for Buffalo

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 15:01:33 -0800

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said finding a quarterback is easier said than done. Shortly after Ryan was hired, he said there were no guarantees at the quarterback position, simply saying that QB EJ Manuel would get a chance to compete.

Fantasy Tip: No matter who is at the helm of the Bills' offense next year, they probably won't be a reliable starting option in fantasy football. Look elsewhere while drafting your quarterback.

Bills | EJ Manuel will have a clean slate

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 12:27:46 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel will have a clean slate next season, according to new offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Roman said that Manuel has shown some good things but that his level of consistency needs to be higher.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel will have to make some positive strides in order to be relevant in fantasy football in 2015. He's not worth drafting this year unless you need a low-end backup quarterback.

Bills | EJ Manuel not guaranteed QB job

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 09:35:41 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel will receive the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job but will not be given the job, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills likely will look to add at least one quarterback through the draft and free agency to compete with Manuel during training camp. The Bills could become more of a running team with offensive coordinator Greg Roman, which could hurt the fantasy value of the starting quarterback. Owners should consider Manuel a weak No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the starting job.
