Draft with caution, fantasy owners.
That's the general advice from NFL Network fantasy football fellas Jason Smith, Michael Fabiano and Elliot Harrison when it came to the Buffalo Bills this summer. Their Bills fantasy analysis was posted today at NFL.com.
Bills fans probably are itching to draft running back Fred Jackson this year, but Harrison warns Jackson should be considered a fifth-round player.
Smith says he would prefer to take third-year back C.J. Spiller late before he would use a selection on Jackson.
Fabiano rates Stevie Johnson around top-15 status among receivers, but prefers him as a No. 3 on a fantasy roster. But Harrison notes that owners shouldn't expect Johnson to be available when ready to pick a third receiver.
Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't get much love either. They all considered him untrustworthy and probably undraftable in 10-team leagues. Harrison calls him the "Amish Stifle."
As for the Bills' defense? Sleeper pick, but not a top choice.
