Matt Cassel Fantasy Analysis

  • Manuel to start Saturday
    The Bills announced Thursday that QB EJ Manuel will start Saturday's exhibition game against the Steelers. HC Rex Ryan reportedly said Manuel has "earned the shot," but he also said Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel would see 1st-team snaps as well. This competition's probably not over, but we'd still bet on Taylor emerging as the Week 1 starter -- barring a strong finish to the preseason by Manuel. Of course, if you're in the position of having to bet on the Bills QB, then it might be time to re-evaluate. Full Story

  • Bills won't announce starting QB until Week 1
    Bills HC Rex Ryan isn't planning on revealing his starting QB until just prior to the team's Week 1 game against the Colts.  "I'm not going to make that decision until we play Indy," Ryan said. "Competitive reasons, whatever. Go for it. We don't need to tell them. Until the league makes us tell them, we can just go right up in there and say, 'We're not gonna say anything.'  We may know. But why would we say any different? The quarterbacks that we're talking about, they're all three different. So plan for all three of them. And I think that's smart on our part."  Can't argue with Ryan's logic there.  And none of the Bills QBs should be a major part of your fantasy draft plans anyway.  The smart money is on Tyrod Taylor winning the job, but he's only worth considering as a 3rd QB in best-ball leagues.

  • Taylor sharp in preseason start
    Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was efficient if not spectacular in Thursday night's preseason game.  Playing the entire 1st half with the starting offense, he completed 7 of 10 passes for 65 yards, 0 TDs and 0 INTs.  Taylor added 41 yards on 4 carries, including a 21-yard gain on a read-option play.  It's that rushing ability that could make this guy a sneaky fantasy option.  If Thursday night's game was an audition for the starting job as we've heard it was, Taylor is now the favorite to be Buffalo's Week 1 starter.

  • Taylor to start next game
    Bills HC Rex Ryan said after Friday night's game that QB Tyrod Taylor will start the 2nd exhibition against the Browns. Ryan said all 3 of his QBs played at a high level against the Panthers. Taylor delivered 47 rushing yards to go with 5-of-8 passing for 49 yards. He followed Matt Cassel in the game and led 2 TD drives. EJ Manuel threw the Bills' only TD pass. This still looks like a wide-open battle. Full Story

  • Cassel's "job to lose"
    The Buffalo News' Tyler Dunne believes the Bills' starting QB job is Matt Cassel's "to lose."  Cassel has reportedly strung together a couple of days of solid practices -- something he, Tyrod Taylor and E.J. Manuel had previously been unable to do.  Cassel was always the favorite to win this job because of his experience, but he still needs to avoid a disastrous preseason to be under center come Week 1.  That's certainly not a given.  Continue to stay far away from Bills QBs in fantasy football drafts.
