2013 DRAFT GUIDE

Buffalo Bills
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Bills can improve on last season's disappointing 6-10 record but don't expect much of a bump. They made several changes on both sides of the ball but many of those impact players are young. And the quarterback situation remains a question mark with Manuel and Kolb as the likely suspects to start. This team could be erratic. But a new coach and talent on both sides of the ball should get this team one or two more wins.

FANTASY BREAKOUT

C.J. Spiller, RB. Spiller finally gets his chance this season to shine from day one. He'll still share a little time with Fred Jackson but will be the featured back in this offense, an offense that should make Spiller the centerpiece. Spiller has huge total yardage potential and the ability to be a top-five fantasy back. This is the season Spiller takes his game to a new level. Remember, he had more than 1,700 total yards last season and wasn't even the full-time starter all season.

FANTASY DUD

Steve Johnson, WR, Bills. Johnson posts pretty consistent numbers at receiver and has been a fantasy asset the last several years. We are just worried about his consistency this season with either EJ Manuel or Kevin Kolb starting at quarterback for the Bills. Ryan Fitzpatrick wasn't great by any means but looked for Johnson often and had a lot more experience as a starter than either of these options. We wouldn't be surprised if the Bills passing attack took a step backwards this season, impacting the fantasy value of Johnson.

Team Notes

Apr 14, 01:12 PM The Philadelphia Eagles tried to land Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller before they traded for RB Darren Sproles this offseason, according to two league sources familiar with the situation. However, the Bills weren't interested in trading their running back.
Apr 11, 07:52 PM Buffalo Bills CB Corey Graham is expected to compete for the starting safety job next to FS Aaron Williams during training camp.
Apr 11, 07:42 PM Buffalo Bills PK Dustin Hopkins likely will need an outstanding training camp in order to win the kicker job over PK Dan Carpenter. Head coach Doug Marrone is not opposed to keeping two kickers on the roster, but it would be a luxury the team may not be able to afford.
Apr 09, 02:43 PM Buffalo Bills DE Jarius Wynn said he hopes to earn a starting job this upcoming season so he can be a contributor on defense each week.
Apr 08, 02:03 PM The Buffalo Bills signed DE Jarius Wynn (Cowboys) Tuesday, April 8. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Apr 07, 02:52 AM The Buffalo Bills are likely to pass on any of the top three quarterbacks in the NFL Draft, suggesting the team is 'all in' on QB EJ Manuel for his second season.
Apr 04, 11:42 PM The Tampa Bay Buccaneers likely would have released WR Mike Williams this weekend if they were not able to trade him to the Buffalo Bills.
Apr 04, 07:52 PM The Buffalo Bills could consider moving WR Stevie Johnson this offseason since the team acquired WR Mike Williams but that options seems unlikely at this point. Johnson is scheduled to have a $8.5 million salary cap figure in 2014.
Apr 04, 01:22 PM Buffalo Bills WR T.J. Graham is firmly on the roster bubble after the team traded for WR Mike Williams. Graham started in only six games last year and is more of a one-dimensional player due to his speed. Buffalo is now unlikely to target Clemson WR Sammy Watkins or Texas A&M WR Mike Evans in the NFL Draft.
Apr 04, 12:02 PM The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded WR Mike Williams to the Buffalo Bills Friday, April 4, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in this year's draft.

Fantasy Impact: Williams is having a rough offseason but maybe a change of scenery will help get him straightened out. Williams is a good low-risk pickup for the Bills. He could end up starting for the team.
Apr 04, 12:02 PM The Buffalo Bills acquired WR Mike Williams from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, April 4, in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick, according to a league source. Williams suffered injuries last year that left him with only 22 catches (a career low) for 216 yards in six games.
Apr 03, 10:22 AM Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Williams is being sued by United Property & Casualty Insurance Co. for $54,453 in damages in relation to a kitchen fire at Williams' house last year.
Mar 28, 07:12 PM Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone indicated CB Corey Graham could compete for playing time at safety in addition to cornerback.
Mar 27, 02:02 PM The misdemeanor trespassing case against Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Williams was closed Thursday, March 27, pending his completion of misdemeanor intervention program. Williams is looking to complete the terms of the program before the start of the 2014 season.
Mar 26, 03:43 PM Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller (ankle) said his ankle has responded well since the offseason began and has been able to plant his foot and make cuts. Spiller dealt with a high ankle sprain during most of the 2013 season.

Fantasy Impact: Spiller could be a buy-low candidate in 2014. He certainly has plenty of upside when healthy.
Mar 26, 03:23 PM Buffalo Bills RB C.J. Spiller said he is working out with QB EJ Manuel in California this week. Spiller said they have been working on improving their timing.
