Wed, 27 May 2015 11:37:32 -0700
Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel were given equal repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, May 26. Manuel and Cassel worked with the starters while Taylor and Tuel worked with the backups. Head coach Rex Ryan said he wants to give everyone a fair chance.
Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Manuel are still the two frontrunners for the starting gig, but Taylor has the best chance to give them a run for their money. Whoever starts for the Bills will be a backup fantasy quarterback.

Buffalo Bills DE Mario Williams said he hopes to build on his 14.5-sack season from a year ago in head coach Rex Ryan's defensive scheme. "Things change, personnel change, obviously coaches change," Williams said. "We pretty much just take from what we learned from (Jim) Schwartz and kind of keep it going. I mean, that's the only way you can do it in this league, because it's pretty much a revolving door."

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was recruited by head coach Rex Ryan in free agency. Ryan believes in the talent evaluation personnel of Taylor's former team, the Baltimore Ravens, and he has always wanted a dual-threat quarterback to lead his run-heavy offense.
Fantasy Tip: The Bills have repeatedly said that there is going to be an open competition for the starting quarterback job, and it sounds like Taylor could have a fighting chance to snag the gig. He would be a low-end QB2 as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Manuel figure to be the main players for the starting gig, but neither should be considered more than a low-end QB2.

Buffalo Bills RB Bryce Brown isn't very well known by the team's running backs coach Anthony Lynn. "I don't know much about him at all," Lynn said of Brown. "I've only met him once," Lynn said Tuesday, May 19. Brown is away from the team while attending to a personal matter. Lynn said it will be difficult for Brown to make up the lost time. Including Brown, the Bills have five running backs on their roster, which further hurts Brown's chances.

The Buffalo Bills are allocating the third-highest cap dollars to their defense in 2015, behind the Seattle Seahawks and Cleveland Browns. Four of the Bills five players counting most against the 2015 cap are on the defensive line: DE Mario Williams, DT Marcell Dareus, DT Kyle D. Williams and DE Jerry Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Manuel isn't cut, he will be a midrange QB2 at best as a previous fantasy tip suggests.

Buffalo Bills wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal discussed the team's wide receivers in great detail Monday, May 18, saying he likes the flexibility among the corps and their ability to execute on the field. Lal believes Bills WR Sammy Watkins can become a complete receiver, and he praised WR Robert Woods' ability as a route runner. Lal doesn't want to pigeonhole WR Percy Harvin as being a gadget-play receiver.
Fantasy Tip: While Lal is right about his primary receiving weapons, someone still has to get the ball into their hands from a cast of likely mediocre quarterback options. Furthermore, Buffalo has invested a tremendous amount of money into their running game and have a head coach in Rex Ryan whose mantra on offense has been "ground and pound." Temper your fantasy expectations in all formats for this tethered passing game full of explosive players.
