|Being a first-round pick means that a quarterback has the talent to play the position. Unfortunately, for close to 15 years, being a Buffalo Bills quarterback has meant not being a productive quarterback. With new coach Doug Marrone, perhaps that will change and Florida State rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel will become the team's most productive starting quarterback since, well, Doug Flutie. Manuel has the size, arm strength, accuracy and running ability to be a solid starter, but he was a surprise first-round pick who didn't run a full-scale, pro-style offense at Florida State. The Bills have solid weapons at running back and a wide receiver depth chart loaded with potential, but Manuel is more of a dynasty prospect than a player you will want to own in your redraft league.
Comment: Manuel (knee) may be ready Week 1. If not Jeff Tuel will start.

Sprained LCL in left knee
|Buffalo Bills quarterback Thaddeus Lewis will start Sunday's season finale against the New England Patriots, coach Doug Marrone announced Friday.

FF Today's Take: Maneul would've started had his knee allowed but Thad will get the call against the Patriots. The Bills will also be without wide receiver Steve Johnson who will attend his mother's funeral on Friday.

Buffalo QB battled knee injuries during rookie season
|For the third time in four months, Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel has been sidelined with a knee injury.
Bills coach Doug Marrone announced this afternoon Manuel won't play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins in Ralph Wilson Stadium. Backup quarterback Thaddeus Lewis will start. Jeff Tuel will be the backup. (Buffalo News)|
FF Today's Take: On another note, WR Steve Johnson did not practice with the team on Wednesday as his mother passed away last Saturday. The Bills passing game is off the fantasy radar for Week 16.
