RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Considering the accuracy and progression issues he displayed at Florida State, Manuel was actually somewhat promising as a rookie, completing nearly 59 percent of his passes while posting more touchdowns (13) than turnovers (12). With a year's worth of experience and a second training camp on his side, Manuel should improve in 2014, especially since the team added Sammy Watkins with the fourth overall pick and traded for Mike Williams. Williams is a more legitimate red-zone target than the since-traded Steve Johnson, and Watkins should be one of the league's elite YAC threats immediately. The addition of second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio at right tackle should also be useful for Manuel's development. Still, until he proves his progress, Manuel is firmly in QB2 territory.

2013

Throughout the entire draft season, it was quarterbacks Geno Smith, Ryan Nassib and Mike Glennon who received the majority of attention from the media. By late April, it was Manuel who got the last laugh as the only quarterback drafted in the first round. If Manuel holds on to job in Buffalo, he also has the best chance of any rookie to provide fantasy-relevant numbers due to his legs, but note that a knee procedure clouds his Week 1 status. Manuel, who rushed for 310 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 at Florida State, could easily eclipse those numbers in the NFL. New coach Doug Marrone also plans to install an up-tempo offense that could lead to more volume in the passing game.
