Bills | Tyrod Taylor hopes to remain in Buffalo

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 10:33:30 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor threw for 3,035 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns and six interceptions in his first season as a starter after spending four years as a little-used backup for the Baltimore Ravens. The first-time Pro Bowler, who added 568 yards and four more touchdowns as a runner, hopes 2015 was the first of many seasons in western New York. "Of course, I want to be the long-term guy. I love playing for the organization, I love playing for the coaches, I love being around the guys. Like I said, I want to be the long-term guy for them. Ultimately, that's up to them," Taylor said.

Fantasy Tip: Bills general manager Doug Whaley cast some doubt on Taylor's long-term future earlier this offseason by suggesting Buffalo wouldn't think twice about drafting a quarterback if the right one fell in its lap. As such, his long-term future is up in the air at the moment. Even if Whaley goes in that direction, the 26-year-old Taylor will be the overwhelming favorite to start for Buffalo again in 2016 and push to be a high-ceiling/low-end QB1 for fantasy purposes.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor has decent outing

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:54:53 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 18-for-28 for 182 yards against the New York Jets in Week 17. He also rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on 10 carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor played well for the majority of the season and appears to have a good chance to keep the starting job next season. Taylor will have more value because of his ability to run the ball and could be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 11:03:06 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and he's probable for Week 17.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor limited again

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 11:40:34 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 31.

Fantasy Tip: The New York Jets will make it really tough on Taylor ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) in Week 17, and he'll be without LeSean McCoy and Charles Clay, too. The ceiling is very limited for Buffalo's passer in the season finale, and he's not a good daily or traditional option.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor limited Wednesday

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 15:06:07 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) should be able to play in Week 17 as long as he does not have a setback over the next few days. He has thrown nine touchdowns in the last five games but may not be the best option for owners since he is facing a tough New York Jets defense.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor has decent outing

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 14:53:32 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 13-for-18 for 179 yards and one interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16. He also rushed for 67 yards on 14 carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor went without a touchdown for the first time in four games and threw only his sixth interception of the season. He does have nine touchdowns over his last five games but may not be a great option against the New York Jets in Week 17.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor could start next year

Mon, 21 Dec 2015 11:31:59 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could be the Bills starting quarterback again next season. Head coach Rex Ryan said the Bills are pretty sure who their starting quarterback will be next year in reference to Taylor.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has certainly exceeded expectations this season, and the Bills certainly don't have another quarterback on their current roster that deserves to start ahead of him. There's still plenty of time before next offseason, but it's Taylor's job to lose.

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 17:55:02 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 16 of his 27 pass attempts for 235 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins. He also ran nine times for 79 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has emerged as a solid fantasy option over the past four games, throwing for nine touchdowns with just one interception, and he has rushed for 206 yards with a score during the span.

Bills | Lukewarm endorsement for Tyrod Taylor

Thu, 17 Dec 2015 18:37:40 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was not endorsed as the long-term solution at quarterback by general manager Doug Whaley. "Let's put it this way," Whaley said. "He's shown us enough that we can obviously keep trying with him. But it won't preclude us from going out and protecting ourselves [in case] he's not."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has been hit and miss all season, and the team is 0-5 when he has thrown 30 or more passes. He has some upside at FantasyScore at his current price, but he is far from a sure thing against a Washington Redskins squad in Week 15 that has played well at home all season.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor hits contract perk

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 06:47:41 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has reached a perk in his contract that voided the third year in 2017 due to a playing time threshold.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor could be in line for a contract extension in the offseason. For fantasy purposes, Taylor ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) has a midrange matchup against the Washington Redskins in Week 15. He'll be among the median of quarterbacks on FantasyScore.
