The Bills and the Giants square off this Sunday in the first preseason game of the 2014 season. Obviously this game means absolutely nothing, but it's basically the first NFL game of the year, let's be a little excited. Even though this game may hold very little impact on the 2014 season, there are definitely some things to watch for each team.

Teddy Bridgewater Could be Fantasy Football's Best Rookie QB in 2014

Last year no rookie QB failed to make a decent fantasy impact. EJ Manuel and Geno Smith both strugglee, and even though they turned in some decent games, no owner would dare start them. Over the years rookie quarterbacks like Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, RGIII, and other made fantasy owners very happy.

Keep Alshon Jeffery and Cecil Shorts off your Fantasy Football Rosters in 2014

Alshon Jeffery

Alshon Jeffery is a stud, no question about, I've been a fan of his since his days at South Carolina. Avoiding him is not a testament to his talent, but how the Bears offense will perform. Obviously the Bears have a lot of other weapons including Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, and Martellus Bennett.

The biggest gripe is that I have no faith in Jay Cutler, and happen to think he is one of the most overrated players in the NFL. He certainly has proven that he can turn Brandon Marshall into a fantasy stud, especially going back to their Bronco days, but I don't think he can sustain two receivers.

Can Sammy Watkins be a Fantasy Football Stud in 2014?

Sammy Watkins is probably the most difficult player to ignore in fantasy football at the moment. If you keep up with sports on twitter, which you should for fantasy purposes, then you haven't stopped hearing about Sammy Watkins.

Don't Pass on Rashad Jennings in Fantasy Football 2014

Jennings is going to be the running back the Giants have been hoping to have for the past few years. Heck, they were so desperate they even brought Brandon Jacobs back. Also, let's not forget the debacle that David Wilson was last year after being a consensus top 15 or 20 running back entering 2013.

Jennings is a lot like Fred Jackson, both in style and in the fact that he essentially comes out of nowhere. Last year, Jackson finished 2013 as a top 10 running back, and Jennings fits that same profile.

Avoid Cordarrelle Patterson in Fantasy Football With these Alternatives

At this very moment, Cordarrelle Patterson is probably the highest selling kool-aid flavor on the market. Do I love Patterson just like everyone else too? Of course I do, I want to own him on every team I draft, but it is downright insane to draft him at his current ADP.

2014 Fantasy Football PPR Mock Draft

QB: Tony Romo, EJ Manuel

Tony Romo is one of the best values at quarterback in fantasy football. In this draft he was the ninth QB overall, and per usual will have no problem putting up 4000 plus yards with close to 30 touchdowns. Considering the offensive coordinator is now Scott Linehan, from the Lions, Romo will continue to throw a lot, if not more.

There were still a lot of quarterbacks on the board when I wanted to draft a backup, so I waited for EJ Manuel with my last pick. The jury is still very out on Manuel, but showed moments of promise in 2013. He should at least improve quite a bit in 2014 considering the efforts the front office went into securing a solid offensive line, and an impressive group of receivers starting with Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Mike Williams.
