Bills | Matt Cassel could be on the bubble

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 17:48:34 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel could be on the roster bubble if he struggles during training camp. The team would save $4.15 million in salary cap space if he is released.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel will still compete for the starting job during training camp, but he struggled during organized team activities. Cassel likely will not have a lot of fantasy value even if he wins the starting job this season.

Bills | Matt Cassel struggles Wednesday

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 09:53:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel threw one interception and almost had two other passes intercepted during practice Wednesday, June 10. Cassel shared first-team reps with QB EJ Manuel during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel will compete with Manuel for the starting quarterback job during training camp, and neither quarterback appears to have a big advantage. Owners probably should consider the winner of the job to be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this season.

Bills | Still a QB competition in Buffalo

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:41:38 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor are still competing for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Rex Ryan. "Wisdom tells me to let I play out, we'll see what happens through the end," Ryan said.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills' quarterback battle could go on well into training camp and the preseason. Whoever ends up starting won't be worth drafting as a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Bills | Matt Cassel, EJ Manuel split reps

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 09:13:56 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel and EJ Manuel both worked with the first-team offense during organized team activities Wednesday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Both quarterbacks will be competing for the job during training camp, but it does not appear like either quarterback has an advantage at this point. The winner of the competition likely will not have a lot of fantasy value and probably would be a No. 2 quarterback in leagues.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor garnering praise

Sat, 30 May 2015 05:56:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is in the competition to be the starting quarterback as much as anyone else, according to quarterback coach David Lee. Lee added, "I think he has a beautiful throwing motion and I just have to think we've got to see how accurate he is." Head coach Rex Ryan provided Taylor first-team repetitions along with QBs EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel through the first four workouts. "He is an unknown, never played a whole lot in Baltimore," Ryan said. "I think the ability is hard to ignore, some of the things that he has."

Fantasy Tip: Even if he enters Week 1 with the starting gig, Taylor would be nothing more than a fringe No. 2 quarterback. At this point, he doesn't warrant a draft pick outside of cavernous two-QB leagues, but the Buffalo quarterback situation is worth monitoring. There are a lot of weapons attached to the offense, and their strong defense projects to frequently tilt the field advantage in the offense's favor. Plus, rushing yards can bolster a quarterback's fantasy point total in a hurry, and Taylor has the ability to scamper. Continue to check back for updates on Taylor and the QB battle in Buffalo.

Bills | Buffalo QBs receiving equal reps at OTAs

Wed, 27 May 2015 11:37:32 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel were given equal repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, May 26. Manuel and Cassel worked with the starters while Taylor and Tuel worked with the backups. Head coach Rex Ryan said he wants to give everyone a fair chance.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Manuel are still the two frontrunners for the starting gig, but Taylor has the best chance to give them a run for their money. Whoever starts for the Bills will be a backup fantasy quarterback.

Bills | EJ Manuel part of open competition

Sat, 23 May 2015 20:44:49 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel will all have a chance to win the starting job, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Manuel figure to be the main players for the starting gig, but neither should be considered more than a low-end QB2.

Bills | Matt Cassel to be backup?

Fri, 15 May 2015 16:32:06 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel is likely to enter Week 1 of the season as the team's backup quarterback, in the opinion of The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci. He also thinks head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman are open-minded about QB EJ Manuel and will give him a fair shot to compete for a starting job this summer. If Cassel or QB Tyrod Taylor win the starting job, the Bills would be expected to trade Manuel before outright cutting him.

Fantasy Tip: Until we know who the starter is in Buffalo, you can turn your head the other way. Whoever does wind up starting in Week 1 will probably be considered undraftable in standard fantasy leagues, anyway.

Bills | Three Buffalo QBs receive equal reps

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:12:11 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, EJ Manuel and Tyrod Taylor each took an equal amount of snaps Tuesday, April 28, at the team's voluntary minicamp. Head coach Rex Ryan didn't name a favorite, saying all three could be [starting] NFL quarterbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever starts for the Bills will have Sammy Watkins and Percy Harvin to throw to and LeSean McCoy behind them, so the supporting cast is there. However, none of the three warrant starter consideration on fantasy squads.

Bills | Matt Cassel has high hopes

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:25:10 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel believes the talent in Buffalo exceeds that of the 2010 Kansas City Chiefs squad he was a part of. "We've got all the pieces to the puzzle here to be a successful football team… Our offense has the best skill players in all the league in my opinion."

Fantasy Tip: Cassel can think what he wants, but the Bills certainly don't have the best quarterback corps in the league, which will hinder the rest of the offense to an extent; whether Cassel or EJ Manuel wins the starting quarterback job, neither are worthy of starter consideration for fantasy teams.
