Looking at the leagues that have already drafted, Kevin Kolb is losing that battle to E.J. Manuel. Manuel is sitting at 12% drafted and Kolb at 5%.
Currently through yahoo sports, Kolb’s projected rank is 46. As a rookie Manuel is sitting back in the 2642 range as is Jeff Tuel.
Yahoo sports has Kevin Kolb starting the season and making it all the way until week 6 averaging just about 11 points per game. No where near RG3′s 19-20 point averages per game, but then again these are only projected guesses based on past performance and team match-ups.
As for Manuel, his rank can’t be calculated yet but he is being projected to take over at week 7 and is being projected to produce just a little more than Kevin Kolb’s projection. He is sitting at just over 12 points per game as an average.
Based on these numbers and beginning outlooks or even love for the team, Would Kevin Kolb or E.J. Manuel make your fantasy team as a starter, a back-up or not even come close.
I would have to say that depending on where I was in my draft and what holes I still needed, I may look at E.J. Manuel as a back-up on my team depending on where bye weeks fall. Lets take a look.
The Bills have a late bye week. RG3 is already my starting QB as a keeper from last year. Washington’s bye week comes into play at week 5, so unless Manuel is starting the year, which we won’t know yet, it may be a reach for me to take Manuel as even a back-up, if Kolb starts the year.
