For the first time ever this year, I'm participating in a dynasty - or, if you prefer, keeper - fantasy football league. The experience has been eye-opening; I already hate the draft strategy that has killed my chances of competing in 2010, but it's also been fun charting assets and planning for future iterations of your fantasy team. It got me thinking - which young Buffalo Bills players are the best options for dynasty leagues?
C.J. Spiller is obviously the first name that comes to mind. By far the most naturally gifted offensive talent on the roster, Spiller is in line for a career full of meaningful touches, and his ability to score any time he touches the ball should make him a valuable fantasy asset right out of the gate.
From there, the choices aren't as obvious, but there are names worth mentioning. Chan Gailey's passing attack has looked conservative to this point in training camp, which could place tight end Shawn Nelson into a prominent receiving role; he certainly has the talent to be excellent. First-year receiver Marcus Easley has been making early waves as a fourth-round pick, and there's not a lot standing in his way on the depth chart. It's even tough to rule out a guy like Levi Brown, a seventh-round quarterback who, due to the players in front of him, could very well see playing time far earlier than, frankly, he should.
Who else would you consider as long-term fantasy sleeper options on this roster? I'd imagine a couple more young receivers will be brought up first and foremost...
