Buffalo Bills - 2015 Projections

Buffalo Bills
     source: bleacherreport.com


Overall Outlook
The Buffalo Bills have not had a playoff appearance since 1999 and after two mediocre years under Doug Marrone, the team has decided to shake things up.  In the 2014 offseason, Buffalo brought about a new superstar RB in LeSean McCoy and a new big named head coach in Rex Ryan. The organization feels great about it's defense, and has invested heavily in offensive pieces like Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor, Percy Harvin, Charles Clay and Richie Incognito.  With the QB situation still in question, we still don't see Buffalo getting over the hump and into the playoffs.

Offseason Moves
Key additions: QB Matt Cassel, QB Tyrod Taylor, RB LeSean McCoy, FB Jerome Fulton, FB John Conner, WR Percy Harvin, TE Charles Clay, G Richie Incognito
Key losses: RB C.J. Spiller, TE Scott Chandler, TE Lee Smith, OT Chris Hairston, G Erik Pears, ILB Kiko Alonso, ILB Brandon Spikes, S Da'Norris Searcy

Offensive Outlook
The Bills offense was below average in 2014. They were 18th in the league in total points scored and 26th in yards per game. The question is QB... Who will be the guy and can they commit to a run first offense? We are expecting Cassel to win the job, but either way, the Bills offense (outside of McCoy) will not be very fantasy football friendly.  

Projections - 2015
QB1 -  Matt Cassel - Passing - 3350 yds / 20 tds 
RB1 - LeSean McCoy - Rushing - 1300 yds / 6 tds  Receiving - 50 recs / 400 yds / 1 td
RB2 - Fred Jackson - Rushing - 600 yds / 3 tds  Receiving - 45 recs / 350 yds / 1 td
WR1 - Sammy Watkins - Receiving - 70 recs / 950 yds / 6 tds
WR3 - Percy Harvin - Receiving - 50 recs / 600 yds / 5 tds
WR3 - Robert Woods - Receiving - 40 recs / 400 yds / 3 tds
TE1 -  Charles Clay - Receiving - 60 recs / 650 yds / 4 tds

Defensive Outlook
Buffalo has put together an interesting defense led by a Mario Williams and Kyle Williams. The Bills were 4th in yards allowed and in points allowed last year. The Bills have proven they can make plays on defense, which makes their IDPs valuable. The addition of Rex Ryan will only make them better.

Projections - 2015

DE2 - Jerry Hughes - 30 total Ts / 2 sacks / 1 pass defensed / 1 total TO
