Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said the team is committed to remaining a zone-blocking team. However, new assistant coach and offensive line coach Doug Marrone didn't use a zone-blocking scheme while with the Buffalo Bills, and he has preferred bigger offensive linemen. Buffalo had the league's heaviest offensive line in his two seasons as head coach. Regardless, Bradley wants his offense committed to the run to take the pressure off QB Blake Bortles.
Fantasy Tip: Depending on what Jacksonville does in the draft and free agency this year, this could be great news for Toby Gerhart, who was a huge bust for his fantasy owners in 2014. With a committment to the run and a new offensive mind in town, Gerhart could get another shot to prove himself. Obviously, he'll be at a cheap price on draft day next year, and he could be a value pick later in drafts.

Updating a previous item, Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone said QB Thaddeus Lewis' (ribs) chances of returning to practice this week are 50-50, which would seem to indicate his chances of playing are in serious jeopardy. Marrone said that right now, if Lewis can't play, QB Jeff Tuel would probably be the starter, but only because he's been here longer than QB Matt Flynn. Flynn, however, does have NFL experience, so Marrone could also opt to go that way and disregard Tuel's advantage in regards to knowing the offense.
Fantasy Tip: This QB situation is a mess. If you have backups, it is best to avoid the Bills altogether against Kansas City. If you are counting on Buffalo to help, be advised this decision could go down to the wire.
