FANTASY PROFILE / STATS & MORE

Many sites have Cassel listed as the starting QB. Over the last four years, Matt has gone 9-17 with 30 TDs and 34 Ints. This hardly looks like an upgrade to Manuel plus Cassel has completed 59.0 percent of his passes in his career. In his last 30 games, Matt only has two 300 yards passing games with no games with more than two TDs in his last 25 games. His season ended in 2014 in late September due to broken bones in his left foot. Cassel is a low upside player with no long term value.

Scout Fantasy: 1. The quarterback situation is a mess from the outside looking in. From a fantasy perspective, does it really matter who wins the battle? Aren't all these QBs going to underwhelm statistically and limit the offense in some capacity?

Ryan Talbot, Buffalo Football Report: From a fantasy perspective, you don't want to draft any of Buffalo's quarterbacks. Matt Cassel has never been a fantasy option at quarterback and it's too early to know what you'd get from E.J. Manuel or Tyrod Taylor. If either of the latter two quarterbacks win the job, you may want to monitor them from the waiver wire. Manuel only has 14 starts under his belt and he supposedly looked the best at the team's mandatory minicamp. Tyrod Taylor, the dark horse in the competition, is a bit intriguing as a fantasy option in deep leagues depending upon how your league gives points for running yards from a quarterback. If you pick up any Bills quarterback, it should only be for your starter's bye week but take a wait-and-see approach.
