Bills | Holding out hope for Thaddeus Lewis

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 11:32:42 -0700

The Buffalo Bills are holding out hope that QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) can play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs, and the team plans on having him throw later Friday, Nov. 1, and work out again Saturday, Nov. 2, before making a final determination. "We're trying to hold out to see if Thad will be ready. We feel that if he is, we have the option to play him if he's healthy enough for us to win," head coach Doug Marrone said. "When you're dealing with muscle injuries, they kind of take it all the way up until game time. This one's a pain tolerance situation to see what he can do." QB Jeff Tuel has a better understanding of the team's offense and is favored to start over QB Matt Flynn if Lewis can't play.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis doubtful

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 10:57:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 1, but is listed as doubtful for Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Jeff Tuel or Matt Flynn will start if Lewis doesn't play. Tuel received most of the first-team repetitions in practice this week in Lewis' absence. "It's a point of the soreness of the ribs," head coach Doug Marrone said. "Really just being able to turn and throw. That's the one thing that's holding him back. If he can get by that, then he will be able to play." Lewis worked on footwork ant timing Friday but did not throw any passes.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Tuel will start against KC. Steer clear of this situation if you can.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis still 50-50

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 11:42:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (rib, flu) did not practice again Thursday, Oct. 31, and he remains 50-50 to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Doug Marrone said the team hasn't decided if Lewis will be able to start. Both QBs Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn have taken first-team repetitions in practice this week, but Marrone "feels better" about going with Tuel if he has to.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Lewis suits up, staying away from the Buffalo QB situation this week if probably the safest route to take.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis 50-50 to return to practice

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 23:10:01 -0700

Updating a previous item, Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone said QB Thaddeus Lewis' (ribs) chances of returning to practice this week are 50-50, which would seem to indicate his chances of playing are in serious jeopardy. Marrone said that right now, if Lewis can't play, QB Jeff Tuel would probably be the starter, but only because he's been here longer than QB Matt Flynn. Flynn, however, does have NFL experience, so Marrone could also opt to go that way and disregard Tuel's advantage in regards to knowing the offense.

Fantasy Tip: This QB situation is a mess. If you have backups, it is best to avoid the Bills altogether against Kansas City. If you are counting on Buffalo to help, be advised this decision could go down to the wire.

Bills | Thaddeus Lewis ill

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:24:20 -0700

In addition to Buffalo Bills QB Thaddeus Lewis (rib, flu) dealing with a rib contusion, he's also dealing with a "flu virus." Head coach Doug Marrone said Lewis is 50-50 to play in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QBs Jeff Tuel and Matt Flynn split first-team repetitions in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30. "Coach Marrone walked into the room and said 'It could be anybody. We don't know,'" Tuel said. "We know as much as you do." Marrone will evaluate Lewis' chances to start later this week, but it appears as though he's leaning toward going with Tuel if Lewis can't play.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever winds up starting against the Chiefs should be avoided for fantasy football lineups unless you're truly desperate in leagues where you start two quarterbacks.

Bills | Jeff Tuel taking first-team snaps

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 09:41:10 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel is taking the first-team snaps in practice Wednesday, Oct. 30, with QB Thaddeus Lewis (ribs) not participating. QB EJ Manuel (knee) was dressed for practice but is not expected to be an option in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. QB Matt Flynn would back up Tuel if Lewis is unable to play.

Fantasy Tip: Tuel is not an option for fantasy football lineups, especially going up against the Chiefs, one of the best defenses in all of football.

Fri, 25 Oct 2013 12:04:52 -0700

Mon, 14 Oct 2013 11:31:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB Thaddeus Lewis (foot) will start Week 7 if he is healthy enough to play. Marrone said QB Matt Flynn will be the No. 2 quarterback if he learns the offensive system. The team is confident QB Jeff Tuel can handle the starting job or No. 2 job if needed.

Bills | Teammate confident in Jeff Tuel

Sat, 05 Oct 2013 09:33:06 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods said he has confidence in QB Jeff Tuel as the team's starting quarterback because he received time with the first-team offense during the preseason. "He did play in some preseason games for us and he does have a little bit of game experience and that's a plus for us," Woods said. "This week right here is just pushing to get better. More reps with him would be better for us."

Bills | EJ Manuel won't need surgery

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 10:53:08 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) will not need surgery on his sprained left knee, and he's expected to return in a few weeks. Head coach Doug Marrone said it's "not a stretch" that a quarterback other than QB Jeff Tuel will start against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 6, and they'll look "outside the organization" to add QB depth.

Fantasy Tip: We highly doubt Buffalo will give Josh Freeman a call, since Manuel is expected back after a few weeks. This is a temporary solution and Freeman will be looking for a chance to make more of an impact.

Bills | EJ Manuel to miss a few weeks

Fri, 04 Oct 2013 10:49:56 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) is dealing with a lateral collateral ligament injury and will miss a few weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel will be back, but until then, the team's fantasy-relevant receivers - Stevie Johnson (back), Robert Woods, Scott Chandler - will take a value hit with Jeff Tuel at the helm. Expect Buffalo to lean more on Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller in the coming weeks.

Bills | EJ Manuel practices

Mon, 02 Sep 2013 10:47:10 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said QB EJ Manuel (knee) fully participated in practice Monday, Sept. 2. Manuel and QB Jeff Tuel split reps with the first-team offense during practice.

Fantasy Tip: It appears there is a chance Manuel could be ready for Week 1, but Tuel may be the more likely starter at this point. Neither should be an option to start against New England.

Bills | EJ Manuel throws before game

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 15:52:11 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel (knee) threw "a lot" of balls in warmups before their preseason game Thursday, Aug. 29. He wasn't moving around much, though. He's still up in the air for Week 1 against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Jeff Tuel is ahead to start in Week 1 at the moment, but that could change. Figure on waiting until the last minute on whether to downgrade any of the Bills' skill players.

Bills | Jeff Tuel might be start in Week 1

Tue, 27 Aug 2013 09:35:33 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday, Aug. 27, that rookie QB EJ Manuel (knee) needs to be cleared to practice by Wednesday, Sept. 4, if he is to play in the regular season opener Sept. 8 against the New England Patriots. Even then, Manuel would need to pass an evaluation. QB Jeff Tuel legitimately has a chance to open the season as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: If Tuel is tabbed to start in Week 1, his fantasy value would be limited to formats which require two starters at the quarterback position. Even then, he would only be worth a roster spot in leagues of 12 or more teams.

Bills | Planning on Jeff Tuel to start Week 1

Mon, 26 Aug 2013 10:02:54 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the team is planning to start QB Jeff Tuel Week 1 because of the injuries to QB EJ Manuel (knee) and QB Kevin Kolb (concussion).

Fantasy Tip: Tuel may get the start in the regular season opener, but owners should not consider having him in their starting lineups.

Bills | Jeff Tuel could start in Week 1

Sun, 25 Aug 2013 17:16:50 -0700

The prospect of Buffalo Bills QB Jeff Tuel starting the regular season opener against the New England Patriots Sept. 8 looms as a distinct possibility with QB EJ Manuel (knee) recovering from surgery, and QB Kevin Kolb (concussion) facing a lengthy absence following another concussion.

Fantasy Tip: If he did get the starting nod, Tuel would not be someone to depend upon for fantasy purposes unless you're absolutely desperate for a quarterback in a format which requires starting two signal callers.

Bills | Pleased with EJ Manuel

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 21:20:39 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel split the snaps with QB Jeff Tuel in an intrasquad scrimmage Monday, Aug. 5, and after a slow start, the rookie Manuel settled in and showed well. Head coach Doug Marrone liked what he saw. "I'm pleased with a couple of things," Marrone said, "just his demeanor coming back, obviously, from the start with the interceptions. I'm pleased that he led us on a two-minute drive. He's done that consistent. I think that's difficult to do."
