Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins out for Week 7-- Thu Oct 22 9:30 am --
EJ Manuel makes second straight start
For the second straight week, EJ Manuel will start at quarterback for the Buffalo Bills. Tyrod Taylor's knee has not healed as quickly as the team had hoped, so the 2013 first-round pick gets the nod.(Buffalo News)
FF Today's Take:Taylor was not stepping into his throws according to Rex Ryan so it's another start for Manuel who went 28 of 42 for 263 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT against the Bengals last week. With Watkins out, Chris Hogan and Robert Woods will be the top two wide receivers. TE Charles Clay should see plenty of targets as well.
LeSean McCoy probable, Taylor questionable-- Fri Oct 16 12:01 pm --
FF Today's Take:McCoy was able to practice on a limited basis this week. With the team missing Karlos Williams (concussion) and Anthony Dixon being a less than desirable option, McCoy is going to give it a go. It's going to be hard for fantasy owners to trust him as a RB2 and his risk for re-injury is high. Tyrod Taylor will likely be inactive this week. Expect EJ Manuel to start at quarterback.
Tyrod Taylor could miss Wk 6 with knee injury-- Tue Oct 13 1:15 pm --
FF Today's Take:Taylor has been a nice surprise ranking No.5 among all QBs in FPts per game. Manuel will be a downgrade for fantasy owners as he lacks the play-making ability Taylor has shown early in the season.
Bills going wth Tyrod Taylor as starting QB -- Mon Aug 31 10:26 am --
FF Today'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.
