Depth Chart
The starting quarterback position for the Bills is an open competition between a first round bust (EJ Manuel), a journeyman veteran whose sole claim to fame is an eleven-win season with the Patriots (Matt Cassel), and a former backup to Joe Flacco who has yet to make a single NFL start in five seasons (Tyrod Taylor). When you add in the fact that the Bills are now under the leadership of Rex Ryan, a defensive minded coach who prides himself as a run-first, ground and pound type of signal caller, you are left with a situation that is less than advantageous for fantasy owners.

According to reports, none of the quarterbacks made much of an impression during off-season workouts and depending on who you listen too, Matt Cassel appears to be the leader in the competition as mini-camps break this summer. However, the addition of former San Francisco 49er offensive coordinator Greg Roman appears to bode well for a more mobile quarterback like Manuel. Romanís scheme tends to favor a quarterback who can move out of the pocket, make throws on the run, and run the read-option. Those are three things that Manuel does better than Cassel.

Taylor is the dark horse in the race as he is the most mobile of the three and could be the most effective player should the Bills run what appears to be a highly conservative offense. Taylor received an equal share of snaps with his counterparts and has impressed Ryan and Roman with his athleticism. Bottom line, none of the three players vying for the starting nod are worthy of consideration in ten- and twelve-player, one-quarterback leagues.

Running ability makes Taylor an intriguing QB2

Buffalo Bills

FFToday's Take: Matt Cassel has proven his mediocre abilities, EJ Manuel has failed to impress so head coach Rex Ryan turns to the dual-threat abilities of the unproven Taylor. He's a QB2 for fantasy purposes and will have above-average talent surrounding him once LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Percy Harvin (hip) recover from their injuries.
