Bills 'concerned' QB Kevin Kolb's career might be over; team signs QB Matt Leinart

Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb @KevinKolb_4 has suffered at least three concussions in his NFL career, the latest coming Saturday against the Redskins. And according to Tim Graham of the Buffalo News, the Bills are "concerned Kevin Kolb's concussion may be career-ending and they're proceeding with that in mind.
With Kolb and E.J. Manuel @EJManuel3 currently injured, the Bills have signed quarterback Matt Leinart. The former first-round pick worked out for the team on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis:

Leinart is 30 years old, and we all know he has been a massive bust. But at the moment, he has a shot at starting in Week 1. He and Jeff Tuel will vie to be the team's No. 3 quarterback, but that player may get the call if Manuel's knee hasn't healed properly and if Kolb needs a long time off -- and it sounds like he will. I think the Bills' passing game is off limits for now.

Soooo... Spiller at 3 was probably a bad choice as teams will just stack the box now and make Leinart beat 'em?

If say if anything it's good for spiller. That just means more and more carries for him. Like they said he's gunna run till he throws up!!! Spiller all the way bro!!

Agree with PornStache (I've always wanted to write that).

I will respectfully disagree. Fred Jackson isn't the threat he used to be and everyone will be focused on Spiller. He also hasn't shown a lot of durability. I don't think he has the physical stature to tote the ball every game and hold up through the season. I think he will play spectacularly well until he implodes mid to late season due to injury. Then your fantasy playoff hopes are done for. I'm not drafting him unless he falls into the 4th round of my PPR league. I'm actually avoiding all Bills players like the scourge.

Oh, but I will note that this is by far the best fantasy website I've seen. Great reporting guys. Over the years I think I've made close to $4000.00 in my office leagues using your articles.

Thanks again.
