E.J. Manuel finds a trio of touchdowns, solid fantasy effort

The Bills quarterback had a nose for the end zone against the Jaguars on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel completed 17 passes for 193 yards two touchdowns and an interception in the team's 27-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15. Manuel also rushed the ball 10 times for 37 yards and a third touchdown.

Fantasy impact: At the start of the season, Manuel was on the radar of fantasy owners as a potential deep sleeper. Once he got hurt in the middle of the season and missed significant time, his stock dropped. Now that he's back, the Bills are pretty much assessing his value for the future and things look optimistic. From a fantasy perspective, it may have made sense to start Manuel this week just because the Jaguars aren't known for their defense.

Those who did cashed in on Sunday, albeit with a less than stellar yardage total from Manuel. Going into Week 16, Manuel will line up against the Miami Dolphins. They are definitely better than the interstate rival Jaguars, so starting Manuel may not be the best thing to do going forward.
