Bills | EJ Manuel, Sammy Watkins show chemistry

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 18:43:37 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel went 4-for-4 on passes to WR Sammy Watkins during team drills Sunday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value of both players hinges on how well they can connect, and Sunday's results were definitely a good start. Watkins should still be drafted as a WR3 at this point, but his stock is only going to rise if he and Manuel continue to show chemistry.

Bills | EJ Manuel expected to shine

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 15:09:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel should do big things this season, considering how much he's grown mentally and physically, according to C Eric Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel showed signs of stardom last year, but also showed signs of inconsistency, partly due to injuries. He doesn't have the greatest wide receiver corps at hand, but his dual threat ability makes him an intriguing backup option in standard leagues.

Bills | EJ Manuel looking to play smarter

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 18:02:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said he wants to play smarter when he runs with the ball because he does not want to suffer another injury. "That was one thing I had to learn: to be smart when I take off with the football," Manuel said. "Instead of trying to get an extra three yards, step out of bounds and slide. Those are all the nuances I had to learn." Manuel said he is 100 percent healthy and stronger than he was last season.

Bills | Sammy Watkins' chemistry with EJ Manuel not there

Fri, 27 Jun 2014 05:45:42 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins said his chemistry with QB EJ Manuel is not fully there. "It's not fully there. I mean, we've been connecting at minicamp, and OTAs," Watkins said. "But at the same time, I could be wide open, and if he don't feel it, or if I run it a different type of way, he won't throw the ball."

Bills | EJ Manuel not comfortable throwing deep?

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 11:14:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel reportedly leaned heavily on scrambles and dump-offs at organized team activities, saying he took what the defense gave to him. According to a source, his accuracy during two-minute drills and red zone drills were nothing to write home about.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel was better than people give him credit for in his rookie season with the Bills, but he's still not a reliable fantasy option unless you're playing the quarterback-by-committee game. Unless the offense improves, he's cemented in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Bills | Offense working with full playbook

Wed, 11 Jun 2014 09:50:25 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said the offense has not been on the same page at times this week, because the coaching staff has started to use the entire playbook. "We put in a lot of offense so the communication part has been extremely important for us to make sure everybody is on the same page every single play," Manuel said. "That's something that we've really been working on." Manuel said it is frustrating when plays are not executed perfectly but understands there are more practices coming up to work on the plays.

Bills | Nathaniel Hackett likes the direction of the offense

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 19:44:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills offensive-coordinator Nathaniel Hackett believes the offense is improving on the up-tempo style from last year. Hackett pointed to the development of QB EJ Manuel and the addition of WR Sammy Watkins among the reasons for the improvement.

Fantasy Tip: Ideally, an up-tempo offense means more plays and more opportunities for the team's main weapons. However, Manuel and company likely have a long way to go before establishing week-to-week consistency, and the weather in Buffalo won't help the cause.

Tue, 03 Jun 2014 06:09:59 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel worked out with San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick in the offseason. Kaepernick is known for his offseason workouts in NFL circles. Manuel said he feels 100 percent after his rookie season was plagued by knee injuries.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel is worthy of being a QB2 with the potential to crack starting lineups in good matchups or bye weeks.

Bills | EJ Manuel working on progressions

Thu, 29 May 2014 17:52:39 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said he has been working on reading defenses and going through his progressions this offseason. "Obviously being a young guy sometimes you would look past somebody in a progression when you could've just held on a half second longer and he may have come open," Manuel said. "So just going through my own film study this offseason is something I noticed."
