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.

Team Notes

Mar 06, 07:43 AM Free-agent SS Da'Norris Searcy (Bills) will be allowed to test free agency, as it appears the Buffalo Bills have little interest in re-signing him.
Mar 04, 07:53 PM Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller may be on the Philadelphia Eagles' radar in free agency, according to source. However, Spiller won't be Eagles head coach Chip Kelly's highest priority.
Mar 03, 08:03 PM Philadelphia Eagles LB Kiko Alonso's (knee) rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament is going very well, and he has increased his activities and has begun running, according to a source. 'I anticipate being 100% before camp. By camp, I definitely feel I'll be 100%,' Alonso said.
Mar 03, 07:33 PM Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller said Tuesday, March 3, that the Bills called him and thanked him for his services. In summary, Spiller won't be coming back to the Bills next season, as if the acquisition of RB LeSean McCoy wasn't enough proof.
Mar 03, 06:53 PM Buffalo Bills LB Kiko Alonso will reportedly be traded for Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy.
Mar 03, 06:43 PM Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy will reportedly be traded for Buffalo Bills LB Kiko Alonso.

Fantasy Impact: Alonso is coming off a major injury but is a good pickup for the Eagles if healthy. He'll help this defense.
Feb 28, 02:22 PM Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel still seems to be the No. 1 option at quarterback, for now, with Josh McCown heading to the Cleveland Browns. Buffalo could still add a quarterback in free agency or the draft.

Fantasy Impact: We can't see the Bills going into the season with Manuel as their starter but you never know.
Feb 24, 06:23 PM Buffalo Bills impending free-agent RB C.J. Spiller made it very clear that he's a fan of Jets offensive coordinator Chan Gailey. Gailey coached Spiller from 2010 to 2012 with the Bills. 'His offense is going to be very creative,' Spiller said. 'He's going put his players in the best situations to win matchups. Just a humble guy. First class. Goes about his business the right way. He's going to treat his men like men.' The Jets have a hole at running back with RBs Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell poised to leave.
Feb 23, 08:53 PM Buffalo Bills impending free-agent DE Jarius Wynn is a player the Bills are interested in re-signing this offseason, according to a source.
Feb 19, 03:13 AM Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan is excited about QB EJ Manuel, as he told reporters Manuel 'has some potential', but the club is still looking for a long-term signal caller.
Feb 19, 03:13 AM Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan is excited about QB EJ Manuel, as he told reporters Manuel 'has some potential', but the club is still looking for a long-term signal caller.
Feb 18, 06:13 PM Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan said finding a quarterback is easier said than done. Shortly after Ryan was hired, he said there were no guarantees at the quarterback position, simply saying that QB EJ Manuel would get a chance to compete.
Feb 18, 02:23 AM Free-agent WR Mike Williams (Bills) may move quickly in free agency. His agent has six meetings scheduled in Indianapolis this weekend with unspecified teams.
Feb 17, 01:13 PM Buffalo Bills impending free-agent DE Jerry Hughes wants to re-sign with the team, and they want him back, but Buffalo is unlikely to use $14 million-plus on another pass rusher in the offseason.
Feb 09, 12:22 PM Buffalo Bills OG Chris Williams (back), who missed 13 games with a lower back injury last year, said that he expects to be healthy enough to play at the beginning of the 2015 season.
Feb 07, 03:22 PM Free-agent OG Richie Incognito (Dolphins) has officially signed with the Buffalo Bills Saturday, Feb. 7, according to a source. Details of the contract were not disclosed.
