Wed, 22 Jun 2016 15:50:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor and the Bills are both open to an in-season extension, according to a source. Talks have been ongoing through the offseason, but an extension is not expected before the season starts.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor has high expectations

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:08:56 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor feels he will restore a winning tradition in Buffalo, and he feels he can do exactly what Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton did last season. "I am 100 percent confident that I can do that. Cam played very well and willed his team. He took his team to the game that everyone who plays this game wants to get to. I commend him for that. We came in the same year so I definitely kept up with him. We became friends throughout our time in the league. Yes, I am 100 percent confident I can do the things that he did," Taylor said.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has the potential to be a Top 10 quarterback at his position, but fantasy owners will want to draft him as a QB2 heading into the season.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor impresses with accuracy

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 23:25:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was impressive with his accuracy in practice Tuesday, June 14, working the ball into the hands of his receivers with a very small window.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor came into his own last season and emerged as a useful fantasy option at times. With a healthy Sammy Watkins and a strong running game led by LeSean McCoy, Taylor could easily have Top 10 fantasy potential at his position sooner rather than later.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor in charge of offense

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 18:23:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he feels more in command of the offense this year and has earned the trust of his teammates with the preparation he puts in.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is an appealing fantasy backup because of his dual-threat ability, but Buffalo's run-first offense will make it tough for him to be a reliable weekly starter.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor continues to impress

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 10:26:33 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was sharp again in 15-17 mph winds in practice Wednesday, June 8, and he's been more comfortable going through his reads this offseason. Buffalo also ran some read options during organized team activities.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor had a breakout year with Buffalo in 2015 and is the unquestioned starter heading into this season. He has plenty of weapons to work with but could remain somewhat limited for fantasy purposes as a backup in this run-first system. But Taylor can also make things happen with his legs, which gives him low-end QB1 upside depending on matchups.

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 19:02:50 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was sharp in red zone drills Wednesday, June 1, hitting TE Chris Gragg for a pair of touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was inconsistent last season, but he also flashed some upside. He should be a quality fantasy backup in 2016 and a potential starter against the right matchups in DFS play.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants to open up offense

Sun, 22 May 2016 17:56:40 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor expects more out of the offense because he has a year of experience under his belt, and he wants to open up the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills were a run-first team last year, but Taylor showed the ability to make big plays with his arm and his legs. He should be a solid fantasy backup in 2016.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants healthy Sammy Watkins

Sat, 21 May 2016 20:29:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he is not worried about the injury to WR Sammy Watkins (foot) hurting their chemistry with each other. "We've been talking together and getting on the same page," Taylor said. "We want on the field work obviously, but we'll get that when the time comes. The main thing is that he gets healthy so he can play at the level that we know he's capable of playing at."

Fantasy Tip: As long as Watkins' recovery goes as planned, he should be a strong WR2 in 2016. Taylor should be a solid QB2, and he could be a sneaky starter in daily formats against the right matchups.

Bills | Buffalo wants to lock up Tyrod Taylor

Tue, 03 May 2016 19:57:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is a player the team wants to lock up with a long-term deal, and general manager Doug Whaley said Tuesday, May 3, he is "supremely confident there's a chance" a deal will get done.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor posted 3,035 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns, six interceptions while rushing for 568 yards and four more scores. The team apparently believes he is the future, as they declined a fifth-year option on EJ Manuel, a player they once spent a first-round pick to secure. Taylor has the makings of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues because of his dual-threat ability.
