Bills | Buffalo willing to run a lot

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:45:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said the team would prefer to be a running team next season. "We prefer to ground and pound it, we're going to run it 50 times if we can on you," Ryan said. Ryan said he knows the offense has to be balance, which is why the team signed TE Charles Clay and WR Percy Harvin this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: LeSean McCoy should see plenty of carries under Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. McCoy did see his rushing yards and touchdowns drop this past season, but he should still be an option in first rounds of drafts next season.

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 15:01:03 -0700

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.
