Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) did not progress enough to play in the team's Week 17 game, according to head coach Doug Marrone.

At the end of the day, the decision process was injury related and he was not able to do the things at 100 percent that in my opinion we need to do to win this game."

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis to start

Fri, 27 Dec 2013 09:40:23 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (shoulder) will receive his second straight start in Week 17 against the New England Patriots because QB EJ Manuel's (knee) knee did not respond to treatment as the team hoped.

Bills | EJ Manuel expected to be OK

Mon, 16 Dec 2013 12:21:46 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) is expected to be "OK" after spraining his left knee in Week 15. "(He) went through the whole game (with it)," head coach Doug Marrone said. "I don't feel like it's going to be anything. We have time. He's already watching the Miami tape now to get himself ready." Manuel completed 71 percent of his passes for 193 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel could see some improvement in the final two games after the Bills decided to dumb down their playbook to help him out. However, we don't recommend that you rely on him outside of deep leagues that require two starting QBs.

Bills | To dumb down playbook for EJ Manuel

Tue, 10 Dec 2013 10:22:55 -0800

The Buffalo Bills plan to scale back their offensive game plan in order to aid the development of QB EJ Manuel for the final three regular season games. Manuel had his worst performance in the Week 14 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, throwing four interceptions. However, head coach Doug Marrone believes Manuel is still the long-term answer at quarterback. "He has the ability to do it, there's no doubt in my mind. The problem is that it's like anything else, he's going to take a lot of the heat because of the position and that comes with it. At the end of the day, we need to make sure that the people around him are doing what they're supposed to do," Marrone said.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel has had a tough season, and his midseason injury didn't make things any easier on him. He has plenty of upside left for next year, but it's not wise to rely on him for the last three weeks of the season.

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 12:16:03 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 7, and is fully expected to return to start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. "EJ wasn't sore or anything yesterday.

Obviously EJ has taken the majority of snaps, so we're planning on him going."

Fantasy Tip: Manuel is probably best left as your backup QB this weekend, even though the Steelers have been giving up large chunks of yardage in recent weeks.

Bills | EJ Manuel not a lock to play

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 10:00:10 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) will practice this week, but the decision has not been made by head coach Doug Marrone as to whether Manuel will start in Week 10 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Manuel completed 56.7 percent of his passes for five touchdowns and three interceptions in the first five weeks of the season before getting injured.

Fantasy Tip: It would be best to avoid Manuel this week if he plays, unless you're desperate in a league that allows you to start two quarterbacks.
