EJ Manuel underwhelms in Week 5 loss to the Ravens

EJ Manuel underwhelmed in the Raiders' Week 5 loss to the Ravens. He went 13-of-26 for 159 yards with one touchdown. He added two rushing attempts for 15 yards.

Fantasy Impact

It sounds like Derek Carr should be back next week, so Manuel's brief cameo as the Raiders' quarterback should be over. Even if Carr misses another game, Manuel isn't a fantasy option outside of two-QB leagues.

EJ Manuel to start Week 5 against the Ravens

With the Derek Carr injury news, EJ Manuel is now slated to start at quarterback for the Raiders against Baltimore.

Fantasy Impact

Manuel has been in the league for a while now, and has shown signs that he can be an adequate backup quarterback. The matchup will be tough for him on Sunday, but there are good weapons on Raiders roster for him to be competent. Manuel is a stay away in fantasy this week, as the Raiders will probably ask him to be a game manager while they lean heavily on the run.

E.J. Manuel signs with Raiders

The Oakland Raiders signed former Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel.

Fantasy Impact

Manuel, a former first-round pick of the Bills, signed with the Raiders Thursday. He'll likely compete with Connor Cook for the No. 2 quarterback spot on the depth chart behind starter Derek Carr.

E.J. Manuel not expected to remain with Bills

Buffalo Bills beat writer Jay Skurski does not expect the team to retain quarterback E.J. Manuel. "Manuel’s time with the Bills should be over," Skurski said via the Buffalo News. "His legacy will be that of a first-round draft bust, even if it’s not his fault the Bills reached for him."

Fantasy Impact

Manuel, an impending free agent, is unlikely to be retained by the Bills this offseason. The former 16th overall pick in the 2013 draft has never lived up to expectations and is labeled by most as a bust. He will likely compete for a backup role with another club for 2017.

E.J. Manuel fails audition

Buffalo Bills QB E.J. Manuel was unimpressive in his first start in over a year, a Week 17 loss to the New York Jets. Manuel, who was given the start over the injured (and possibly departing) Tyrod Taylor, completed nine of his 20 pass attempts for 86 yards, adding just eight yards rushing on two attempts. He also lost a fumble on the afternoon, and was replaced in the fourth quarter by third string QB Cardale Jones.

Fantasy Impact

This game was viewed as something of an audition for Manuel's future prospects. He once again showed that he is only marginally worthy of an NFL roster spot (despite Bills GM Doug Whaley's apparent feelings to the contrary). Even if he somehow ends up being a starter for the Bills, he is irrelevant for fantasy.
