This pair of newcomers to Buffalo share a slide, because it's quite possible that the two will share the starting job for the Bills, at least after a fashion.
The Bills released Ryan Fitzpatrick less than two years after signing him to a fat contract extension. At that time, it appeared that Tarvaris Jackson would have the inside track to the starting job, at least until the rookie quarterback that everyone assumed the Bills would draft was ready.
The signing of Kevin Kolb has muddied the waters considerably.
The 28-year-old Kolb actually played fairly well for the Arizona Cardinals last year, throwing for nearly 1,200 yards and eight touchdowns before a rib injury ended his season six games in.
If Kolb can stay healthy this season, not only would he appear to be the favorite to start in Buffalo, but he could potentially become the sort of mid-range fantasy QB2 that Fitzpatrick was for much of his tenure with the Bills.
However, durability isn't exactly Kolb's strong suit, so there's a good chance we'll see Jackson taking snaps at some point this year.
The former might be draftable as a fantasy reserve in deeper formats, but Jackson is waiver wire fodder unless he's elevated to starter, and even then his upside would likely be minimal.
Projected Stats (Kolb): 2,650 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, 11 interceptions (12 games)
Projected Stats (Jackson): 725 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, 4 interceptions (4 games)
