2014 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Buffalo Bills
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bills should make some strides this season but still seem a little ways away from making a run at the playoffs. They'll probably be a few games under .500 but better than last season. It still isn't certain if E.J. Manuel is the franchise quarterback for the team. The progress of this team might hinge on the development of Manuel. The defense is getting better, though, which is a plus. They finally started turning the corner some last season, which is a must because of the division they play.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
Receiver Robert Woods had a decent rookie season but didn't post big numbers. He battled some consistency issues but having inconsistent quarterback play didn't help matters for Woods. He should play a big role in the Bills' offense from day on this season. He should be the slot receiver, giving him good potential in PPR formats. We like his reception potential and expect a good spike across the board in receptions, yards and touchdowns. Woods has the talent to do well in this role and should get his targets in this offense.
FANTASY DUD
Running back Fred Jackson just keeps chugging along. He had another very good season last year and has been a great back for the Bills the last several seasons. But we just wonder how much longer he can go at his current pace. He is going to be 33 years old this season. There aren't many backs in the history of football that have produced good numbers at that age. Jackson might have a hard time matching his past production, especially if C.J. Spiller can stay healthy.
