2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Jul-06-2014 by Brian Murphy

While the sky's the limit for Watkins, Woods represents a steady presence for this receiving corps. A fundamentally sound player at just 22 years old, Woods posted a relative nondescript stat line as a rookie last season -- 40 catches for 587 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games -- and didn't catch more than five passes in any week. He may never record impressive season totals, but Woods will see plenty of playing time as he can line up out wide and in the slot. He is worth a stash late in point-per-reception drafts. He is a critical cog in Manuel's progression as they enter their second year together.

Latest Update

Oct-01-14 Bills WRs give vote of confidence to new QB Kyle Orton

Wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods both had positive remarks about their newly-appointed quarterback, Kyle Orton, on Wednesday, pointing out the different vibe that the veteran signal-caller brings to the huddle.

"We just had a different approach to practice," Watkins noted. "Orton demands what he wants out of us. He's more of a veteran guy. The way he talked, the way he handles business, the way he looks at plays and breaks down defenses, it's kind of different than EJ."
Fellow wideout Robert Woods agreed. "His directness in the huddle," Woods said, "telling us what to look for and be ready for when we're breaking the huddle when he calls the play."
The 10th year veteran Orton is with his fifth team. His best years were 2009 and 2010, when he threw for over 3,500 yards and over 20 touchdowns for the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Analysis:

Orton will have his work cut out for him Sunday when the Bills take on a Detroit Lions defense that allows the fewest points in the league to quarterbacks. While Orton isn't someone that we'd recommend using, his presence does give WR Sammy Watkins a little more credence as a WR3/flex option from week-to-week.

In regards to E.J. Manuel, his fantasy value was already minimal. It's now non-existent. However, he is only 24 years-old. He still has a chance to play in the NFL someday. It just doesn't appear it's going to be in 2014.

14.03 Draft Sharks - Woods showed nice chemistry with E.J. Manuel last year, totaling 26 catches, 406 yards and 3 TDs in 8 games with Manuel. Those numbers over 16 games would have made him a top 35 WR. He's capable of finishing that high in 2014.
