Buffalo News - [Full Article]

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett sat down with practice-squad quarterback Thad Lewis last Friday, the day after starting QB EJ Manuel suffered a sprained knee.

“I was blown away when I first started talking to him,” Hackett said. “I started asking him all these questions, and he knew the answers. I said, ‘How’d you know all this stuff? He said, ‘Well coach, this is my job. I’m learning it just like I’m the starter.’ ”

Hackett expressed satisfaction Friday with Lewis’ ability to run a full offensive package when the Bills face the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

Fantasy Impact: 

We rank Lewis 29th this week among our QBs, and it's only natural to expect him to struggle. The matchup against Cincy isn't a very good one for him and despite the fact he may run the full offense, Lewis isn't a safe play for typical fantasy leagues.
