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.

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

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.

Bills | EJ Manuel's option not picked up

Mon, 02 May 2016 15:40:58 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel's fifth-year option is not being picked up by the team.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Manuel is behind Tyrod Taylor on the QB depth chart and isn't expected to play in 2016 unless an injury occurs. Buffalo also drafted Cardale Jones, so Manuel's time with the Bills is coming to an end shortly. He has zero fantasy value for now.

Bills | No extension for Tyrod Taylor

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:18:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not receive a contract extension in light of the Bills drafting QB Cardale Jones. QB EJ Manuel's option is unlikely to be picked up, too.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor will start as long as he's healthy after a career year last season, but the future of the position remains a mystery. As for 2016, Taylor remains a fringe QB1.

Bills | EJ Manuel decision up in air

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 14:46:31 -0700

The Buffalo Bills haven't decided whether to pick up the option for QB EJ Manuel, according to general manager Doug Whaley. The deadline for Manuel's fifth-year option is in May, and it would likely be prohibitive for the Bills to keep him.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor's status unknown

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 09:00:07 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's (chest) availability for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs is unknown, but head coach Rex Ryan hopes his quarterback will be available. Ryan said he has "no idea" if Taylor will be ready. QB EJ Manuel briefly warmed up on the sidelines in the Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots Monday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) looked to be in a considerable amount of pain during the Monday night game, but he never missed a snap. You'll need to watch his practice status this week. The Chiefs defense has stiffened up in recent weeks, so Taylor won't necessarily be an attractive sleeper pick at QB, especially if he's not 100%.
