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.

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.

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.

Buffalo Bills QB Tarvaris Jackson received the first snaps during organized team activities Monday, May 13. He was followed by QB Kevin Kolb and EJ Manuel. Head coach Doug Marrone said the quarterback rotation likely will change daily.

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone indicated QBs EJ Manuel, Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson will split reps with the first-team offense once offseason workouts begin.

Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said the team's up-tempo offense will help the younger players because they will not have to think as much. "The best thing to me that tempo does," Kolb said, "is that it relaxes the mind of the players and they can just do what they've been doing their entire life. A big problem, especially for young players at this level, is they slow down because they're thinking too much. If you get them into a no-huddle, you get them into a quick style of offense, then they're just reading and reacting. When you're reading and reacting you're playing at your highest level and that's when you make a lot of great plays."

Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb does not think he gets sacked too much, and talked about how he should not have that label placed on him. "No, because the label only came from really my stint in Arizona," Kolb said at Monday's introductory news conference at One Bills Drive. "When I was in Philly for however many games I started -- I don't even know -- I can remember going multiple games without maybe getting hit four or five times."

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the addition of QB Kevin Kolb does not mean the team will not look at quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft. "I do not think it really is going to change the philosophy on the draft," Marrone said. "I think that when the position comes whatever is best for our team to get better I think we will go ahead and choose that player whoever it may be. I think that rather than trying to, and I do not want to speak for Buddy (Nix) or anyone else in the organization, rather than trying to reach or go somewhere that you do not want to go you bring the best players you can bring in and you make those guys compete. You are a better football team."

Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said he believes he can help the team win a Super Bowl title. "I'm here to win the Super Bowl. Period," Kolb said. "For me it was just straight, 'Hey, how can I go win, how can I go be successful.'" The Bills have the longest active postseason drought in the league at 13 consecutive seasons.
