Raiders | Amari Cooper to be more involved?

Sat, 07 Oct 2017 18:33:16 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB EJ Manuel said he is going to make an effort to make WR Amari Cooper more involved in the offense early against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper is off to a dreadful start, and having Manuel under center instead of Derek Carr could prolong his slump. Cooper should be fine in the long run, but he is a risky WR3 in Week 5.

Raiders | EJ Manuel expected to start

Fri, 06 Oct 2017 15:46:59 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB EJ Manuel is expected to make the start in Week 5 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: While Derek Carr was able to practice for a second straight day, the chances of him playing are considered small. Manuel took the first quarterback reps in practice, followed by Carr and Connor Shaw. Manuel isn't a terribly attractive one-week fantasy option, but at least he gets Michael Crabtree back from injury to help a little bit.

Raiders | EJ Manuel to start Week 5

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 15:43:42 -0700

Oakland Raiders QB EJ Manuel will be the starting quarterback against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 5.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel threw for 107 yards and one interception after he replaced Derek Carr in Week 4. Owners should be able to find other quarterbacks to use in their lineups and can avoid Manuel this week.

Raiders | EJ Manuel likely landing in Oakland

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 15:46:08 -0700

Free-agent QB EJ Manuel (Bills) is "likely" signing with the Oakland Raiders, according to league sources.

Fantasy Tip: If he does end up signing with the Raiders, the former first-round draft pick will continue to hold no fantasy value, as he would strictly be competing with Connor Cook for the backup quarterback job behind Derek Carr.

Bills | EJ Manuel does nothing in start

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:40:38 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel made the start in Week 17 against the New York Jets with QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) inactive. Manuel completed just nine of his 20 passes for 86 yards and he was sacked twice before QB Cardale Jones took over and finished out.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel was once a first-round pick and starter, but he has been a disaster and is nothing more than a backup in this league. As such, he has no fantasy appeal heading into 2017.

Bills | EJ Manuel benched

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 12:41:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel was benched during the Sunday, Jan. 1, game against the New York Jets. Manuel was replaced by QB Cardale Jones.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a mess in the offseason, but right now the player with upside appears to be Jones. Tyrod Taylor is likely headed elsewhere if the Bills can get rid of him, and the fact Manuel couldn't get anything going against the lowly Jets is a red flag. Keep an eye on this situation.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor will not play Week 17

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 09:25:48 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will reportedly be benched for Week 17 against the New York Jets. Buffalo reportedly does not want to take the chance of owing Taylor $30.75 million should he get hurt in the regular-season finale. Impending free-agent EJ Manuel will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills' indifference in regards to Taylor has been known for some time, although the decision to give Manuel a start seems ridiculous considering he has shown next to nothing since he was a first-round draft pick in 2013. The decision also seems foolish because this weekend would be a perfect opportunity to give rookie Cardale Jones some live action as well. With Manuel under center, virtually every Buffalo player - perhaps outside of LeSean McCoy if he goes - is not worthy of a start in fantasy.
