Bills | LeSean McCoy, Fred Jackson to split third downs?

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 15:05:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson could split third-down snaps. Head coach Rex Ryan said Jackson wouldn't be in on all of the third-down plays and that RB Anthony Dixon would also get some playing time.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy is obviously still the Buffalo running back to own and will be the team's bellcow running back, as Ryan has said. Jackson should still provide some value, especially in point-per-reception leagues, but he won't be nearly as effective as he was last season.

Bills | Extension coming for Marcell Dareus

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 11:45:35 -0700

Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus is due to receive a contract extension "in the near future," according to general manager Doug Whaley. "He will be priority No. 1 once the dust settles post draft, maybe even before then, just to get the ball rolling," Whaley said. Dareus has a year left on his rookie contract from 2011, and the Bills already picked up his fifth-year option for $8.06 million. Dareus finished 2014 with a career-high 10 sacks and has gone to the Pro Bowl each of the last two years. An extension for Dareus will likely include plenty of guaranteed money.

Bills | LeSean McCoy trade was quick

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:31:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was acquired from the Philadelphia Eagles March 4, and Bills head coach Rex Ryan said the trade took 30 minutes to wrap up. "The trade for LeSean happened really quick," Ryan said at the NFL owners meetings. "We were all sitting there. We were having organizational meetings. ... And all of the sudden we get this call from Philadelphia and I think that was when the trade started. Probably 30 minutes later, the trade was done."

Fantasy Tip: Shady moves to a ground-and-pound approach in Buffalo under Ryan, but the move is likely a mixed bag for his 2015 fantasy value. To be safe, he's better viewed as a high-end RB2 with potential for more depending on how Buffalo uses McCoy and Fred Jackson together.

Bills | LeSean McCoy Buffalo's bellcow

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 07:31:51 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy was referred to as the team's "bellcow" by head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said that McCoy and RB Fred Jackson could see time on third downs.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the team will feature McCoy heavily, which helps shed doubt on Jackson's involvement. Jackson's value falls to the high-end RB4 territory, while Shady is best served as a midrange RB1.

Bills | Rex Ryan committed to the run

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 15:57:52 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson are expected to receive a lot of carries in head coach Rex Ryan's offense. Ryan went as far as to say: "we're going to run it 50 times if we can on you."

Fantasy Tip: This really doesn't change much because it's not often that you can run the ball effectively 50 times against another NFL team. Shady McCoy is a mid-to-low RB1 right now, while Jackson's fantasy appeal is a little clouded. He could be a low-end RB2 or a high-end RB3.

Bills | Rex Ryan expects competition at QB

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:46:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor will compete for the starting quarterback job during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel and Cassel appear to be the most likely candidates to win the starting job, but Taylor could have a shot depending on his work in the offense. Owners should consider whoever wins the starting job as a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season.

Bills | Buffalo willing to run a lot

Sat, 21 Mar 2015 10:45:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said the team would prefer to be a running team next season. "We prefer to ground and pound it, we're going to run it 50 times if we can on you," Ryan said. Ryan said he knows the offense has to be balance, which is why the team signed TE Charles Clay and WR Percy Harvin this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: LeSean McCoy should see plenty of carries under Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. McCoy did see his rushing yards and touchdowns drop this past season, but he should still be an option in first rounds of drafts next season.

Bills | EJ Manuel to have competition

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:44:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel is not locked in as the starting quarterback. Head coach Rex Ryan said Friday, March 20, that the quarterback competition will be open. "It's a competition and whoever earns the job will be the guy that's out there," Ryan said. "We have some talented guys and we'll see what happens. You bring in a veteran like (QB Matt Cassel). He's done some pretty good things in this league. He's got that veteran presence about him. With EJ back there just going into his third year I really believe EJ is going to improve with his fundamentals having (QB coach David Lee) here."

Fantasy Tip: The winner of the three-way battle between EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor will be a fantasy backup at best, but they might be worth using in FantasyScore when the matchup is a favorable one.

Bills | Matt Cassel will have shot to start

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:43:29 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel will have a chance to win the starting quarterback job in training camp and the preseason. Head coach Rex Ryan said Friday, March 20, that the quarterback competition will be open. "It's a competition and whoever earns the job will be the guy that's out there," Ryan said. "We have some talented guys and we'll see what happens. You bring in a veteran like (QB Matt Cassel). He's done some pretty good things in this league. He's got that veteran presence about him."

Fantasy Tip: Cassel hasn't been a fantasy option in quite some time, but if he were come in and steal the show, he could re-emerge as a decent fantasy backup option in standard leagues. He would also have some value in FantasyScore when the matchup is favorable.
