Seahawks | Russell Wilson has big game

Mon, 23 Sep 2013 09:41:21 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw for four touchdowns in the team's Week 3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, and QB Tarvaris Jackson also threw for a touchdown and ran one in. Both quarterbacks combined for 331 yards and five touchdown passes and completed 21 of 29 throws. TE Zach Miller and WR Sidney Rice had two touchdowns each.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson's big game doesn't come as a huge surprise against the hapless Jaguars. Don't expect production this large for much of the rest of the season, though.

Free-agent QB Tarvaris Jackson (Bills) is expected to visit the Seattle Seahawks in the next day or two to possibly sign a contract with the team, two sources said Tuesday, June 11.

Bills | Doug Marrone praises EJ Manuel

Fri, 31 May 2013 11:26:08 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone has praised rookie QB EJ Manuel during organized team activities. "From my standpoint ... EJ Manuel has done better (as a rookie) than any of the other organizations I've been a part of," Marrone said.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that Manuel has been working with the third-team offense during OTAs this month, he could surpass both Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson later this summer if he performs well. Manuel's value will be highest in dynasty leagues in his rookie season. Relying on whichever Bills passer wins the job as a backup isn't recommended.

Bills | Quarterbacks rotating

Thu, 30 May 2013 06:05:15 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson are splitting reps with the first team in OTAs, and QB EJ Manuel is working as the third-stringer.

Fantasy Tip: It's still premature, but we could see Manuel leapfrogging both of them by Week 1. Kolb and Jackson have very little fantasy value, and Manuel probably doesn't have a lot outside of dynasty leagues in his rookie campaign, either. Monitor the situation and see how well he picks up the offense.

Bills | EJ Manuel likes new offense

Mon, 20 May 2013 10:14:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said it has been easy to pick up the team's offense, which he said is less complicated than the system he learned at Florida State. "The funny thing is it's easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," he said. "It's a true West Coast-type progression offense. That's really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That's it, it's that simple. I love it." Manuel has spent extensive time working with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel will compete with Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson for the starting QB job this summer. If Manuel wins it, consider him a weak backup quarterback in just his rookie season. Manuel could be a decent signal caller in the long term, but Buffalo will need a proven receiver opposite Stevie Johnson in order to make a significant impact.

Bills | Kevin Kolb, Tarvaris Jackson may compete for one spot

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 11:17:36 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson may compete for one roster spot during training camp if the team drafts a quarterback that they believe can be their franchise quarterback. Kolb's contract is expected to be worth up to $13 million over two years, and there is minimal downside if the team chooses not to keep him.

Bills | Tarvaris Jackson to remain No. 3 QB

Wed, 03 Oct 2012 08:45:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tarvaris Jackson is expected to remain third on the depth chart the rest of this season. Head coach Chan Gailey does not envision Jackson challenging backup QB Tyler Thigpen. "It would be very tough for Tarvaris to challenge for that spot this year because of limited reps (in practice)," Gailey said. "Fitz takes almost every rep we have on offense during the course of the week. The backup gets very few reps through the course of practice. So it's hard for him to get the reps necessary to make a viable charge at this point for that position."
