Raiders | EJ Manuel likely landing in Oakland

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 15:46:08 -0700

Free-agent QB EJ Manuel (Bills) is "likely" signing with the Oakland Raiders, according to league sources.

Fantasy Tip: If he does end up signing with the Raiders, the former first-round draft pick will continue to hold no fantasy value, as he would strictly be competing with Connor Cook for the backup quarterback job behind Derek Carr.

Bills | EJ Manuel does nothing in start

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 21:40:38 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel made the start in Week 17 against the New York Jets with QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) inactive. Manuel completed just nine of his 20 passes for 86 yards and he was sacked twice before QB Cardale Jones took over and finished out.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel was once a first-round pick and starter, but he has been a disaster and is nothing more than a backup in this league. As such, he has no fantasy appeal heading into 2017.

Bills | EJ Manuel benched

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 12:41:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel was benched during the Sunday, Jan. 1, game against the New York Jets. Manuel was replaced by QB Cardale Jones.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a mess in the offseason, but right now the player with upside appears to be Jones. Tyrod Taylor is likely headed elsewhere if the Bills can get rid of him, and the fact Manuel couldn't get anything going against the lowly Jets is a red flag. Keep an eye on this situation.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor will not play Week 17

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 09:25:48 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will reportedly be benched for Week 17 against the New York Jets. Buffalo reportedly does not want to take the chance of owing Taylor $30.75 million should he get hurt in the regular-season finale. Impending free-agent EJ Manuel will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills' indifference in regards to Taylor has been known for some time, although the decision to give Manuel a start seems ridiculous considering he has shown next to nothing since he was a first-round draft pick in 2013. The decision also seems foolish because this weekend would be a perfect opportunity to give rookie Cardale Jones some live action as well. With Manuel under center, virtually every Buffalo player - perhaps outside of LeSean McCoy if he goes - is not worthy of a start in fantasy.

Bills | EJ Manuel expected to be backup

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:54:08 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel is expected to hang onto the primary backup job behind QB Tyrod Taylor, as rookie QB Cardale Jones hasn't made enough progress to pose an immediate threat.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel is a former first-round pick, but it appears he is destined to be a career backup unless something changes dramatically. For fantasy purposes, he is only worth a look for depth in deeper fantasy formats which require two starting signal callers.

Bills | EJ Manuel has difficulty with deep ball

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:24:32 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel continued to have problems hitting the deep targets in stride during practice Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel is trying to hold off rookie Cardale Jones for the primary backup job behind starter Tyrod Taylor. As such, he has very little in the way of fantasy appeal unless Taylor goes down to injury.

Bills | EJ Manuel clear No. 2 quarterback

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 14:04:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel has nothing to prove in the coaching staff and is the clear No. 2 quarterback on the team's roster, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said QB Cardale Jones will be the No. 3 quarterback.

Bills | Cardale Jones struggling so far

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 10:03:35 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Cardale Jones wasn't sharp during rookie camp, but the Bills coaches understand Jones is a project with great size and a rocket for an arm. It could be difficult for Jones to push QB EJ Manuel for the backup quarterback job in training camp as he tries to become familiar with the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Jones was drafted as a project with plenty of athleticism, so the Bills know what they are working with. It'll be an uphill climb for Jones to learn the offense quickly this summer, so he really only has appeal in keeper and dynasty leagues in 2016.
