Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:35:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Simms is not believed to be in line to make the 53-man roster, and "the odds are stacked against" him according to head coach Rex Ryan. However, if the team elects to cut QBs Matt Cassel or EJ Manuel, that could change things dramatically.

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 06:21:37 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel could be cut by the team, as they are internally discussing the option.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel has no fantasy value as a backup and would only have depth value if he were to start elsewhere.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor named starter in Buffalo

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 08:27:06 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was named the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 31, over QB Matt Cassel an QB EJ Manuel.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is a developing quarterback with some wheels. He's not as polished as a passer. He'll be a low-end QB2 selection that you can probably take a flyer on late in drafts.

Bills | Buffalo QBs should play equally

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:07:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor are expected to play a series or two each Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Manuel will start.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the last big opportunity for all three quarterbacks to prove they deserve the Bills' starting quarterback job. Cassel has the experience, while Taylor and Manuel both offer more with their running ability, specifically Taylor. Whoever starts should not be a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Bills | Buffalo to use rotation at QB?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:31:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel may each be rotated in with the starting unit Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Joe Buscaglia of WGR Sports Radio 550. All three quarterbacks have received first-team repetitions the last two practices.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was impressive when he started last week in the Bills' second preseason contest. Taylor gives the Bills more options with the offense, but Cassel has much more experience. Manuel seems to be the third option. None of them are worth starting on your fantasy squad.

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 15:02:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel was working with the first-team offense Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Tyrod Taylor are in a heated battle for the starting quarterback spot. Both would be low-end QB2's as the starter.

Bills | Buffalo could keep three QBs

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:38:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel could all be on the Bills' final roster, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said there is a high possibility that the Bills could keep all three quarterbacks, adding that Cassel, Taylor and Manuel would all receive playing time in their next preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has looked the most promising this preseason. He and Cassel seem to be the two favorites to start with Manuel lurking behind. Ryan may not name a starter until the preseason concludes. Whoever starts isn't worth starting as your fantasy quarterback.

Bills | All three Bills QBs seeing starter snaps

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:49:57 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel have all received snaps with the first-team offense during team drills Saturday, Aug. 22. Cassel was the first quarterback in the drills.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills may allow this competition to continue until the end of the preseason, but owners should receive some information when the team names a starter for the third preseason game. None of the Bills quarterbacks have much fantasy value and would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in a deeper league.

Bills | Buffalo may wait on QB decision

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 12:15:52 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel are still competing for the starting quarterback job, but head coach Rex Ryan said the team may not announce the starter until Week 1. "This will probably play out," Ryan said. "Indianapolis might not know who the quarterback is until we play them. We may know, but they may not know."

Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Taylor appear to be the major candidates for the job and the third preseason game should answer some questions. Neither quarterback will be a great fantasy option for owners, so the winner of the job should only be seen as a No. 2 quarterback.
