Bills QB Kevin Kolb slips on his way to practice, injures knee

With so many questions surrounding the Patriots' offense, the AFC East is kind of for grabs this year. Not many expect the Bills to be the team to grab it, and something happened this morning that sounds like a bad omen for the season ahead.
Quarterback Kevin Kolb @KevinKolb_4 tripped over a wet mat while jogging onto the practice field and injured his left knee. He took his pads off and went into the locker room before the practice began. Head coach Doug Marrone later said that Kolb just "tweaked" his knee, and he is considered day-to-day. Rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel @EJManuel3 will get more reps in his place.

Fantasy Analysis:

Facepalm. It's nice to hear that Kolb wasn't seriously hurt, because if he was, he'd be giving Bill Gramatica a run for his money for the clumsiest way to suffer a knee injury. Kolb is not a recommended fantasy selection, but you knew that already.

I know you needed to lead into your Bill's story about Kolb somehow. But as long as a QB named Tom Brady is playing for the Pats, the AFC East will not be up for grabs. The other teams haven't done anything to dramatically improve! The ONLY longshot in that division that could possibly knock the Patriots off would be the Miami Dolphins.

Not a Dolphins fan , however they will win the AFC East this year . Brady is a fading star and has no one to throw to .The Pats defense is bottom third . People keep hanging on to the notion that this is the team that won three Super Bowls ten years ago , it's not . Look out below here come the Pats

"No one to throw to..." The chorus of the song for those who have not investigated the NEP... First off, I'm NOT a Pats fan... But, I don't underestimate them, either.
First and foremost, they have a solid, dependable O-Line... That is HUGE!!
They DO have receivers. Yes, some of them are young, but they are also VERY talented. Sudfeld is a starter quality TE already... Thompkins is THE most undervalued WR in the draft, in terms of his ADP!!
Everybody wants to put Tom Brady in a coffin, but they are a little early
Last year he threw for 4800+ yards 34 TD and 8 INT... a %$@#%$ astounding year...
As long as Brady has TIME to throw the Pats will win games. They also have a solid RB corps. Their defense is ranked in the top 10 by EVERY major fantasy ranking site, I checked five and the average was 6th in the NFL... You are hanging on to the notion that this is last years NEP defense.
The Pats dynasty will eventually collapse, but it won't be this year, and under estimating them is a HUGE fantasy mistake...
