  Bills | Schouman first TE through rotation    Sat Jul 25, 05:56 PM

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports that TE Derek Schouman was the first through the rotation, but "the reps were split pretty evenly with Derek Fine"

Footballguys view: There probably isn't much fantasy value to be had at the Buffalo TE position, unless rookie Shawn Nelson ends up being an immediate hit, but we're still tracking the position battle.

  Bills | Fine displaying more consistent route running, separation    Mon Jul 13, 07:41 PM

Chris Brown, of BuffaloBills.com, reports that second-year TE Derek Fine gained consistency in his route running and ability to separate while having a strong spring. Bills TE coach Charlie Coiner called Fine a "physical, tough guy with a lot of power and explosion... He's going to be a big-bodied guy in the middle, make a tough catch and get you 5-6 more yards after the catch and get back in there."

Footballguys view: We can't get too excited about Fine's fantasy prospects because of the presence of Lee Evans and Terrell Owens on the outside, and an excellent supporting cast of receivers that includes Josh Reed, Roscoe Parrish, and Stevie Johnson. By the time Fine has come into his own, we think 2009 fourth-round pick Shawn Nelson will be ready to pass him on the depth chart.
