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.

Bills | Doug Whaley still high on EJ Manuel

Wed, 07 Jan 2015 09:33:37 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel's struggles this past season were related to coaching issues, according to general manager Doug Whaley. Whaley has been telling this to head coaching candidates and has talked in glowing terms about Manuel during interviews, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel appears to be the leading candidate for the starting job at this point even though he was benched during the season. The team may bring in another quarterback to compete with Manuel during training camp, but the team's starting quarterback likely will not have much value in fantasy leagues next season.

Bills | Buffalo still iffy on EJ Manuel

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 12:07:52 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel may still not be the team's franchise quarterback, according to general manager Dough Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel still has an entire offseason to prove he's the next Bills starting quarterback. If Manuel is named starter next season, he's still a backup fantasy quarterback.

Bills | EJ Manuel has opening

Mon, 29 Dec 2014 07:07:19 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel is the only quarterback on the roster, following QB Kyle Orton's retirement Monday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel should be involved in a competition in camp next season. He's worth targeting as a suspect QB2 next year.

Bills | EJ Manuel won't play in Week 17

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 14:51:30 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel will not play at all in Week 17 against the New England Patriots, even though the Bills have been eliminated from the playoffs. QB Kyle Orton will remain the starter for the season finale because he continues "giving the team the best chance to win," according to head coach Doug Marrone. Marrone said he hasn't had any talks with the team brass about the future of the quarterback position for the team. Manuel is due to count $2.4 million against the salary cap next year, and releasing him would create $5.25 million in dead money.

Fantasy Tip: The team's decision not to get a look at Manuel in the season finale with nothing on the line isn't promising for his future with the team. Heading into next year, Manuel shouldn't be on any fantasy football radars.

Bills | EJ Manuel not in plans this year

Thu, 11 Dec 2014 18:29:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel will not start again this season if head coach Doug Marrone has the final say. When asked if his decision to stick with QB Kyle Orton as the starter would change if the team fell out of playoff contention, Marrone said, "No. Not for me, unless it changes for somebody else."

Fantasy Tip: Based on the comments, Marrone has no faith in Manuel as a starter, and the only way he will be under center again this season is if Orton were to suffer an injury or if someone above Marrone forced the head coach to make a change.
