We're nearing the end of July, and while fantasy football drafts won't pick up until mid-to-late August, in most cases, prudent fantasy owners everywhere are already plotting league domination. The Buffalo Bills aren't exactly a fantasy hotbed, but there are intriguing prospects here - and we're asking you which is highest on your pre-draft big board heading into the 2010 season.
Rookie running back C.J. Spiller is in line for a lot of touches as both a runner and a receiver, and should be a sought-after commodity in PPR leagues. Meanwhile, two more running backs - Fred Jackson (can Chan Gailey get him into the end zone more often?) and Marshawn Lynch (how much playing time can he expect in Buffalo?) - are worthy of most fantasy rosters, as well.
At wide receiver, Lee Evans is the only viable option, and while he did improve in the TD department a year ago (improving from three to seven), he's still a fantasy question mark, mostly because of the team's question marks at QB and along the OL. Trent Edwards (we think) and Shawn Nelson (we're more certain about) have the inside track at starting jobs at QB and TE, respectively, but neither is considered anything more than worthy of a fantasy flier.
Finally, Buffalo's defense and special teams were solid a year ago, thanks to the team's 28 interceptions, and while the defense is hardly elite, the addition of Spiller and the return of Leodis McKelvin should provide for an explosive return game.
