With the recent trades for running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Matt Cassel to Buffalo, the Bills added $15 million in cap hits for the 2015 season, according to Spotrac’s salary cap numbers. As a result, the Bills are down to “roughly $13 [million] in cap space,” according to ESPN’s Mike Rodak, which will force GM Doug Whaley to be creative in trying to make improvements through free agency without spending big money.

It has been reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that McCoy’s contract will be restructured, which should free up more cap space this year in exchanging for giving McCoy more guaranteed money in later years. But while this may give the Bills more flexibility, it still won’t be enough for them make many more major acquisitions. That said, the Bills might able to land the following five-pack of signings and re-signings if they are smart with how they negotiate their contracts.

The upcoming NFL free agency period will be the Buffalo Bills’ first under new ownership. As of now, Buffalo will begin the March 10th signing period with a war chest of around $27 million, according to Mike Rodak of ESPN.

There are a few Bills who could be in line for new contracts this offseason, including unrestricted Jerry Hughes and defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who would otherwise play on a fifth-year option on his rookie contract. But looking beyond current players on Buffalo’s roster, some have regarded this 2015 free agency class as “the best ever.” The Bills have some voids to fill and knowing general manager Doug Whaley, he’s already busy scheming on how to improve the roster for 2015.

One position Buffalo should upgrade at is tight end. Current starter Scott Chandler stands tall at 6’7″, but has just average speed, which allows opposing teams to cover him with just one defender. Enter Cleveland Browns unrestricted free agent tight end Jordan Cameron, who broke out during the 2013 season and has already expressed his desire to leave Cleveland, according to a report by Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports (h/t Jason Marcum of cincyjungle.com).

Waiver Wire Pickups

Johnny Manziel, Cleveland Browns, QB (Owned in 22% of Yahoo! Leagues): For some reason, Johnny Football was not named the Cleveland Browns’ starter for Week 14, but another poor performance by Brian Hoyer led to a quarterback change for Week 15, when he will play the Cincinnati Bengals. The Browns’ first-round draft pick this past May, Manziel has an ability to run and throw proficiently, along with weapons such as Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, that makes him a low-end QB1 with a very high ceiling who is worth owning in leagues with the space and/or need at the quarterback position.

Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders, QB (Y!: 7%): Another rookie quarterback, Derek Carr went up against a tough San Francisco 49ers defense and pulled out the upset victory while not throwing a single interception. He threw for three touchdowns and 254 yards in the effort, showing his vast improvement from the beginning of the season. Despite not having a good arsenal of weapons, Carr has made do with what has been given to him and made the most of it. He is building chemistry with tight end Mychal Rivera (see below) and also working with other targets like running back Marcel Reece. Carr has a very high ceiling and is a firm QB2 for this week despite another tough matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers, RB (Y!: 40%): Finally cut loose for a week from DeAngelo Williams, Stewart put up great numbers in an unexpected blowout of the New Orleans Saints. Running for 155 yards and a touchdown put him as one of the best performers at the running back position this past weekend. If Williams can’t suit up again with his finger injury, expect Stewart to be the bell-cow again and have the chance to put up a similar performance. He has a great matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and is a strong FLEX play this week at the worst. Go get him if you need any help at the RB position.

Waiver Wire Pickups

Johnny Manziel, QB, Cleveland Browns (Owned in 11% of Yahoo! Leagues): It finally happened. Manziel got his meaningful game action in place of Brian Hoyer on Sunday, throwing for 63 yards and also rushing for a touchdown in a loss to the Buffalo Bills. Head coach Mike Pettine has not named a starting quarterback for week 14, but it’s obvious that Manziel gives the Cleveland Browns the best chance of winning moving forward. Because of his dual-threat ability, Manziel should be seen as a high-end QB2/low-end QB2 moving forward and could be gold for fantasy owners in the playoffs.

Colt McCoy, QB, Washington Redskins (Y!: 5%): Moving onto another QB benching, Robert Griffin III was benched in favor of Colt McCoy in Week 13. McCoy did not lead the Redskins to a victory but had 393 yards passing and three passing touchdowns against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. McCoy has a lot going for him: tight end Jordan Reed is finally healthy, Roy Helu Jr. is a reliable pass-catching running back out of the backfield and DeSean Jackson is not expected to miss any games with a leg injury, according to NBC4′s Dianna Marie Russini. McCoy is a reliable QB2 who could put up a lot of garbage time stats on a weekly basis.

Kenny Stills, WR, New Orleans Saints (Y!: 41%): The main beneficiary of Brandin Cooks’ season-ending injury, Stills has put up two straight great games to help pick up the slack for the loss of Cooks. Stills has caught 13 passes for 260 yards, and one touchdown in the past two weeks. As witnessed on Sunday, teams will make their coverages around Saints tight end Jimmy Graham, making Drew Brees have to look for someone like Stills to throw to. Don’t expect Stills to let up anytime soon, and expect him to keep having great games as the fantasy football playoffs start. He is a solid WR3 with a very high ceiling.

Waiver-Wire Pickups

Mark Sanchez, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (Owned in 3% of Yahoo! Leagues): Yes folks, I’m being serious. Mark Sanchez is now taking over in Philly for Nick Foles. And because of their offense being high-powered and fast paced, Sanchez is a must-own for Foles owners and anyone else who needs quarterback help. He will throw interceptions (two INTs on Sunday), but he should garner high passing yards (202 yards against the Houston Texans) and touchdowns (two TDs on Sunday).

Carson Palmer, QB, Arizona Cardinals (61% Y!): Palmer has led the Cardinals to the best record in the NFL and has no shortage of talented pass-catchers. With Michael Floyd, Larry Fitzgerald, Andre Ellington and others, Palmer is in good hands with the Arizona offense. With a strong arm and veteran experience to boot, Palmer keeps putting up great fantasy points (nine TDs to two INTs in four games) and should be owned by anyone who has a QB on bye this week and/or needs a QB.
