Bills | Jeff Tuel might be start in Week 1

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday, Aug. 27, that rookie QB EJ Manuel (knee) needs to be cleared to practice by Wednesday, Sept. 4, if he is to play in the regular season opener Sept. 8 against the New England Patriots. Even then, Manuel would need to pass an evaluation. QB Jeff Tuel legitimately has a chance to open the season as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: If Tuel is tabbed to start in Week 1, his fantasy value would be limited to formats which require two starters at the quarterback position. Even then, he would only be worth a roster spot in leagues of 12 or more teams.
