Bills | Buffalo QBs receiving equal reps at OTAs (Wed May 27, 02:37 PM) - Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel were given equal repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, May 26. Manuel and Cassel worked with the starters while Taylor and Tuel worked with the backups. Head coach Rex Ryan said he wants to give everyone a fair chance.

Our View: Cassel has the most experience, but he's not an exciting option as a starter. Manuel is big, somewhat athletic and has a strong arm but his decision making needs a lot of work. Taylor could be a sleeper here. He's ultra athletic and has a rocket arm. He needs to show better accuracy as a passer if he wants to win the starting job in Buffalo.

Bills | Rex Ryan favoring Tyrod Taylor? (Sun May 24, 08:50 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was recruited by head coach Rex Ryan in free agency. Ryan believes in the talent evaluation personnel of Taylor's former team, the Baltimore Ravens, and he has always wanted a dual-threat quarterback to lead his run-heavy offense.

Our View: Taylor is one of the quickest and fastest players in the NFL. He can get to top speed in a hurry, and Taylor has make-you-miss ability as a runner in the open field. Taylor possesses a rocket arm, but his accuracy leaves a lot to be desired. He was a 57 percent passer in four years of college at Virginia Tech, and Taylor has only thrown 35 passes in four years as a pro (with a completion percentage of 54.3). He's the most interesting of the Buffalo QBs, and rushing quarterbacks are always players fantasy owners should be monitoring.

Bills | EJ Manuel part of open competition (Sat May 23, 11:44 PM) - Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and Jeff Tuel will all have a chance to win the starting job, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Our View: Let's go ahead and leave Tuel out of this conversation. Manuel is big, athletic and has a strong arm but he failed to make quick decisions as a passer. Cassel has the most experience, but he's not an exciting option as a starter--even for a team that is going to be run-heavy on offense. Taylor is supremely gifted athletically and he has a rocket arm, but he's unproven and needs to be more accurate as a passer. The Bills are going to run the ball as much as possible, and any starting quarterback for them isn't going to be much of a fantasy factor.

Bills | Matt Cassel to be backup? (Fri May 15, 07:32 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Matt Cassel is likely to enter Week 1 of the season as the team's backup quarterback, in the opinion of The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci. He also thinks head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman are open-minded about QB EJ Manuel and will give him a fair shot to compete for a starting job this summer. If Cassel or QB Tyrod Taylor win the starting job, the Bills would be expected to trade Manuel before outright cutting him.

Our View: Manuel certainly has more upside than Cassel, even though he also has a much lower floor. The Bills know what Cassel is, but Manuel could be better if Roman can leverage his running ability and put him in a position to succeed as he did with Colin Kaepernick earlier in his career. Taylor is also a running QB and shouldn't be dismissed if this truly is an open competition, only because of the quality of his competition.
