Bills | Coach confident in Tyrod Taylor

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 13:58:45 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will start the third preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, and head coach Sean McDermott said he has all the confidence in the world in Taylor. Taylor will receive all of the first-team work against the Ravens and is expected to be the starting quarterback in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has struggled at times during the preseason, but he should be the starter for at least the start of the season. He recorded 3,023 passing yards and 23 total touchdowns in 2016. Taylor will be working with a new set of receivers this season but can still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor still the starter

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 23:12:32 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will remain atop the depth chart, according to post-game comments from head coach Sean McDermott Thursday, Aug. 17. Taylor struggled badly during the team's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: This seems like a silly question, but Taylor's struggles coupled with some surprisingly competent play from Nathan Peterman looks to have opened that can of worms. It's highly unlikely that, barring injury, anyone other than Taylor will be under center for Buffalo in Week 1, but in the wake of last week's trades and Taylor's reworked contract it's no longer unthinkable that the team could go full tank mode if things go south early on. It's something to consider when deciding whether or not you want Taylor as your QB2 for 2017.

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 19:48:07 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 8-for-18 for 53 yards and two interceptions in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is working with a new receiver corps this season and is still trying to build chemistry with them. He has posted solid numbers over the last few season and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues. His running ability will help his fantasy value.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor off to slow start at camp

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 12:44:19 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has left something to be desired at camp so far, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak. Rodak noted inaccuracy as one of Taylor's struggles.

Fantasy Tip: Don't fret, yet. There's plenty of time between now and the regular season. Taylor's running ability makes him one of the more tantalizing quarterbacks in the fantasy realm. He's not an elite passer, but those rushing stats make him a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 consideration.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor struggling early in camp

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 23:36:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has not been sharp in the early stages of camp, particularly during 11-on-11 drills, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak, who writes that Taylor has been holding the ball too long and missing open receivers.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's long-term job security in Buffalo is dubious, but the team is unlikely to willingly go to TJ Yates or Nathan Peterman early in 2017. Given his dual-threat ability, Taylor is an interesting QB2 even with some underwhelming performances in training camp.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has impressed head coach Sean McDermott. "I've really been impressed with the leadership," McDermott said.

There's leadership qualities at that quarterback position that are important to winning football games, and I think he's done a nice job in that area."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been a matchup play with some bright spots the last two seasons. He's much of the same this year as a QB2 in fantasy.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor a work in progress

Sat, 20 May 2017 19:39:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor needs to "trust his eyes" more and is still a work in progress when it comes to knowing when and where to throw the ball, according to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor should open the year as the starter in Buffalo, and his ability to throw the deep ball and create plays with his legs make him a solid QB2 and a potential starter against friendly matchups.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor will need to compete for job

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 14:53:34 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not be handed the starting quarterback job and will need to earn it during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is the leading candidate for the job, but he is not guaranteed the job with a new head coach. He had a solid 2016 season with 3,023 yards and 23 total touchdowns. Taylor should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and could be a starting option against certain options.
