Jeff Tuel's Instant Fantasy Reaction After Thad Lewis' Injury
Even if it becomes Tuel Time in Buffalo, it should never, ever be Tuel Time for your fantasy team.
Shortly after Thad Lewis filled in admirably for rookie EJ Manuel, leading the Buffalo Bills to a near-win and fantasy owners to shocking upsets everywhere, Bills radio personality Joe Buscaglia reported the following concerning update:

However, ESPN's Mike Rodak put a little more optimism on the situation:
Thad Lewis says he "should be fine." Says "that's a great sign." Doesn't remember when he got hurt.— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) October 13, 2013
Thad Lewis says he has a sprained foot. "They said the X-rays looked good."— Mike Rodak (@mikerodak) October 13, 2013
There seems to be fantasy potential under center in Buffalo, as both Manuel and Lewis have now put up solid numbers. But owners shouldn't be falling over themselves to acquire Jeff Tuel, the man likely to see action if Lewis is forced to miss any time.
The undrafted rookie was wildly underwhelming at Washington State, and in backup duty against the Cleveland Browns last Thursday, he completed just eight of his 20 throws for 80 yards and an interception.
If Lewis misses time, is Tuel worth a roster spot?
In fact, the Bills had such little confidence in Tuel they went and signed Lewis off the practice squad and immediately named him the starter.
Unless you're in a comically large league, there's no point in giving much attention to Tuel at the moment.
While he looked decent in the preseason, things change in the regular season. He simply hasn't shown anything on the gridiron to get excited about, and Lewis has earned more playing time as long as his injury is as minor as expected.
