Browns | Tyrod Taylor not a 'bridge quarterback'

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 23:13:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor is not being considered a "bridge quarterback," according to head coach Hue Jackson. "This guy is the starting quarterback on our football team," Jackson said. "There are no 'bridge' players. This guy goes out and gets this organization to winning and gets us to the playoffs or whatever all that is, none of you guys would be writing 'bridge' anymore." General manager John Dorsey added that he wants "long-term success with Tyrod."

Fantasy Tip: This indicates that Taylor should have plenty of job security, even with the Browns likely to use the No. 1 or No. 4 overall draft pick on a quarterback. And why shouldn't he? Not only did Taylor lead the Bills to their first postseason berth of the millennium, but he did so while registering another solid campaign, as evident in his 89.2 passer rating. He's also one of the better scramblers in the league, having recorded 14 rushing touchdowns over the last three seasons.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor will start

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 12:34:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor will be the starter this season and he will have no competition, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: The question is does Jackson mean with the current roster or until they draft a rookie? Surely Taylor will have competition if/when the Browns draft a top rookie quarterback, but he would probably start the season in that case anyway. Either way, Taylor has some quality weapons on offense and arguably the best running ability among quarterbacks in the NFL. He's a fringe QB1 on his new squad.

Browns | Cleveland officially acquires Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was officially acquired by the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2018 third-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been a solid quarterback over the last few seasons and will have good receivers to work with next season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues in 2018.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor officially traded

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 13:04:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was officially traded to the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2018 third-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills should be adding a quarterback in free agency or the draft, so it is not known who their starting quarterback will be at this point. Owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Buffalo quarterback situation.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor headed to Cleveland

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 15:12:09 -0800

The Buffalo Bills reportedly agreed to trade QB Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2018 third-round pick Friday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: The trade leaves only Nathan Peterman on the Bills' quarterback depth chart, suggesting they will be players for a new signal-caller in free agency next week and/or the draft next month. Armed with the 21st and 22nd overall picks, Buffalo could be eyeing a move into the top five or 10 picks to get their guy. While Peterman will have a head start on any competition the Bills bring in, he is far from a lock to start Week 1.

Browns | Cleveland lands Tyrod Taylor

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 15:04:09 -0800

The Cleveland Browns reportedly agreed to acquire QB Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a 2018 third-round pick Friday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have drastically upgraded their offense in one afternoon, first acquiring Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins before agreeing to this deal. This trade also buys Cleveland some time to bring a rookie quarterback around slowly if it chooses to take one high in the draft or avoid the position if it doesn't like the incoming class. With his ability to run combined with Landry, Josh Gordon, Duke Johnson and David Njoku on the roster, Taylor may be a high-upside, low-end fantasy QB1 in 2018.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor not expected to be cut

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 13:09:12 -0800

The Buffalo Bills are not planning to release QB Tyrod Taylor at this time and are open to paying his $6 million roster bonus in March. The team could still try to trade Taylor this offseason depending on what they do at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was benched during the season but regained the job and finished with 2,799 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions. He has also rushed for at least 425 yards in each of the last three years with 14 rushing touchdowns during that span. There is a good chance that Taylor starts for a team in 2018 but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Bills | Buffalo eyeing a QB in draft?

Fri, 09 Feb 2018 18:15:18 -0800

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane has yet to endorse QB Tyrod Taylor as the long-term answer at quarterback, and Mike Rodak of ESPN.com believes the Bills could bundle some of their draft picks to move up and select a quarterback early in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not he stays in Buffalo remains to be seen, but Taylor can be viewed as a QB2 if he is a starter somewhere in 2018.
