Bills' Manny Lawson: Injures himself ahead of camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Lawton suffered an injury during a personal workout earlier this month and the Bills have listed him on the Active Non-Football Injury list, reports.

Lawson, usually a smart role player, is expected to play an even bigger role- perhaps a starting one - until first-round rookie Shaq Lawson heals from shoulder surgery. We'll see if this is just a short-term concern, as the Bills would find themselves digging pretty deep for outside linebacker help if it wasn't, and that'd be a shame before the season even started.

Bills' Manny Lawson: Set for starter's minutes
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

With Shaq Lawson's shoulder injury expected to linger into the regular season, Manny Lawson is expected to start at outside linebacker, reports. "Manny was always going to have a big role for us, albeit as a super sub like a sixth man in basketball if you will," said coach Rex Ryan. "He can back up all four spots (at linebacker). You can put him anywhere. He's such a smart player, but today we absolutely put him in there with the first group at that outside linebacker spot."

Jerry Hughes and Preston Brown would seem to be the more attractive IDP linebackers in this defense, but Manny Lawson can do a number of things capably and he's at least worth keeping an eye on until the younger first-rounder is back from surgery and ready to take over.

Bills' Manny Lawson: Productive in a disappointing defense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manny Lawson finished the 2015 season with 47 tackles, one sack, one interception, and five passes defensed.

Lawson played 64.4 percent of the defensive snaps, third among linebackers behind Preston Brown and Nigel Bradham. Lawson saw just 31.3 percent snaps the previous season, so it's clear he's curried more favor with the new coaching staff. Coach Rex Ryan raved about Lawson's smarts on the field, so he would appear to be in line for a regular role again next season. That said, Brown - with two 100-plus tackle seasons in his first two NFL season - is the linebacker to own in this defense from a fantasy perspective.

Bills' Manny Lawson: Starting to see more time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manny Lawson saw a season-high 73 defensive snaps in last week's win over Houston. while notching eight tackles.

Lawson also saw 10 special teams snaps. While he's not technically a starter, expect the Buffalo Bills to keep using Lawson heavily since he can play multiple spots, the Bills have a banged-up defense, and the team sees him as one of its smartest players on the field - something that always helps in Rex Ryan's complex defense.

Bills defensive end Manny Lawson received 28 snaps in Week 1
by Rotowire Staff | Special to

Bills defensive end Manny Lawson was on the field for just 28 of the the team's 77 defensive plays in Sunday's win over the Colts, reports. He registered just one tackle and no other significant stats. 

Lawson is a starter on the depth chart and there will certainly be games where he sees the field more than this, but let this be a reminder that Rex Ryan defenses use a number of interchangeable parts. Unless it's one of the stars or three-down players, best not to get involved from an IDP perspective.
