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.
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.
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.

Sun, 31 Mar 2013 12:19:21 -0700
