Bills' EJ Manuel: Plays poorly in loss to Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manuel completed just nine of 20 pass attempts for 86 yards and gained eight yards on two carries during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Jets.

The coaching staff expressed a desire to see Manuel play a complete game, but his poor performance resulted in Cardale Jones entering the fray to get some reps of his own. Manuel contributed in just four games on the season and his inability to move the ball against what has been a wretched Jets defense does not bode well for his chances of remaining in Buffalo after his current contract expires in the offseason.

Bills' EJ Manuel: Full game in store?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Interim coach Anthony Lynn says he'd like to see Manuel start and finish Sunday's game at the Jets, BuffaloBills.com reports. "It's really hard to get a good look at two quarterbacks in one game," said Lynn. "I want to get a really good look at EJ. So, if it's a good game I'm going to leave EJ in and let him roll."

The Bills would also like to see what raw rookie Cardale Jones can do, but if Lynn's comments are to be taken at face value then Jones would only see action if the Bills get way ahead or way behind. Manuel will helm one of the league's most run-based attacks and that's not likely to change given Lynn's background as a running backs coach and the fact he has LeSean McCoy running so well lately. That said, there are a slew of good fantasy quarterbacks who are about to get some or all of Sunday off, and Manuel at least has a full complement of skill players ready to finish off the season on a good note for a coach they seem to be behind.

Bills' EJ Manuel: Confirmed as Week 17 starter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Interim head coach Anthony Lynn confirmed Wednesday that Manuel will start Week 17 against the Jets.

Whether or not they decide to keep him for next season, Tyrod Taylor is the best quarterback the Bills have, but the team is out of the playoffs and they need to again see what they might have in Manuel, whose contract is up after the season. The team would also pay a huge price if Taylor were to get hurt in a meaningless game. While Manuel might make a decent emergency fill-in for your Week 17 game -- the Bills have been putting up points and he'll have all of the main skill players in tow -- we'll note that rookie Cardale Jones will also be active this week, and it's a possibility he sees some late action, too.

Bills' EJ Manuel: Expected to start in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manuel will likely start Sunday's game versus the Jets in New York, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

Following the firing of head coach Rex Ryan, the Bills are poised to place an interim tag on the starting quarterback spot as well. A vocal supporter of Tyrod Taylor, Ryan doesn't have his back any longer, but finances also seem to be playing part in the change, as an injury could result in a significant guarantee ($30.75 million) paid out to the signal caller. As for Manuel, he boasts a 19:15 TD:INT ratio and 58.8 completion percentage in 27 career appearances.

Bills' EJ Manuel: Still No. 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rex Ryan said Monday that Manuel will remain the second string quarterback, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports.

The good news is he's still ahead of Cardale Jones, the bad is that all the talk of the Bills moving someone ahead of a struggling Tyrod Taylor to give the team a new look the last three weeks was simply chatter. Manuel's contract expires after this season, but with the Buffalo brass in limbo, it's anyone's guess as to what his job locale and placement on the depth chart will look like in 2017.
