Buffalo Bills: No great options at QB in 2018 fantasy leagues

The Buffalo Bills have some players to target in 2018 fantasy drafts but fans should avoid drafting any of the team’s quarterbacks in a standard league.

The NFL preseason kicked off this past Thursday which means it is about time to get going on those fantasy football drafts.

I personally like to wait until the end of the preseason in case of any injuries, but plenty of people can’t stifle their excitement and begin drafting in early August.

Buffalo Bills fans don’t have countless Bills players to target in drafts this year, but there are still solid options. Six Bills players showed up in ESPN’s latest update of the top 300 non-PPR fantasy football rankings.

LeSean McCoy remains the best Bills player available, while Kelvin Benjamin is a solid depth option.

AJ McCarron even showed up on ESPN’s list at No. 296 overall, and the No. 32 overall quarterback. That doesn’t mean he should be drafted in a standard one-year league.

The only way I think anyone should draft a Bills quarterback this year is if someone takes Josh Allen in a dynasty league that lasts beyond 2018. I am in such a league and took Zay Jones last year. Hopefully that ends up working out.

Fantasy football is all about having the best roster from week to week. It is possible that McCarron or Allen have great weeks, but neither of them seem like great options to have in a league in which you only have one quarterback on the bench.

And this mindset is for the start of the season. If a Bills quarterback lights it up early and shows no signs of slowing down, a quick waiver pickup could have you being hailed as a fantasy GM genius.
