Bills | Tyrod Taylor terms

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 05:55:41 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has cap numbers of $9.713 million in 2017 and $18.08 million in 2018. His deal will automatically void if he's on the roster the fifth day after the Super Bowl in Feb. 2019. The Bills will then carry $4.2 million in dead money in 2019, the remaining portion of his $7 million signing bonus he received with the restructure. His 2017 base salary drops from $12 million to $7.5 million, and he does not receive a $15.5 million option bonus because the Bills officially declined his option as part of the restructure. His 2018 salary drops from $13 million to $10 million, and only $1 million is guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor threw for 3,023 yards and rushed for 580 with 17 passing TDs, six picks and six rushing scores in 2016. He's a QB2, in fantasy, but he'll be a matchup play in DFS.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor restructures deal

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 10:51:25 -0800

Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor restructured his contract Tuesday, March 8, to remain with the Bills. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: The connection with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison is encouraging for fantasy purposes. Adding more weapons on the outside will be imperative for Taylor to grow. He's a sketchy QB2 but carries a good deal of upside.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor on Cleveland's radar

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 10:45:37 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is of "significant interest" to the Cleveland Browns should he end up on the open market as expected.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is reportedly the Browns' option should they choose not to pursue Jimmy Garoppolo, and it may be the smarter approach anyway. Any attempt to land Garoppolo would require significant draft pick compensation, while signing Taylor would allow the team to address its many non-quarterback weaknesses with the first and 12th picks in April's NFL Draft. Taylor would remain a fantasy QB2 in fantasy should he leave for Cleveland.

Bills | Buffalo backtracking on Tyrod Taylor?

Fri, 03 Mar 2017 09:32:22 -0800

The Buffalo Bills are "leaning toward" moving on from QB Tyrod Taylor, according the Buffalo News' Vic Carucci.

Fantasy Tip: The soap opera continues. Per Carucci, if the $30.75 million guaranteed wasn't tied to Taylor over the next two years, the Bills would likely be bringing him back for 2017. Taylor is unwilling to renegotiate, so it appears he could be on the way out. Taylor is expected to have no shortage of suitors on the market if he is released, as San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets are among the clubs who could use an established veteran quarterback.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor cleared

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 05:27:47 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) was medically cleared following last month's groin surgery, according to a team source. He has a $27.5 million option bonus due March 11.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is unlikely to see that bonus and probably won't remain with the club. He has been a decent dual threat at the position, but he'll have to land in the right situation. Even then, he's a high-end QB2 in fantasy.

Bills | Increasing odds Tyrod Taylor stays in Buffalo?

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 10:14:58 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor may not end up going anywhere after all, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who said there is "better chance than not" Taylor remains with the Bills.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor will have suitors should he hit the market and is not open to a contract restructure, so Buffalo is either going to swallow hard on committing $30.75 million to him over the next two years or move on without him. A return seems the most likely outcome because the Bills know what they have in Taylor and new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison has worked with him before. Even in a slightly more wide-open offense than what he's had in his first two years with Buffalo, Taylor could flirt with low-end QB1 status.

Browns | Jimmy Garoppolo top target for Browns?

Sun, 19 Feb 2017 12:17:40 -0800

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo appears to be the top target for Cleveland Browns this offseason, in the opinion of The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot. The Browns could consider quarterbacks like Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo and Tampa Bay Buccaneers impending free-agent QB Mike Glennon if they are not able to acquire Garoppolo.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have two first-round picks in the 2017 draft, so they should have the pieces to move if they want to acquire Garoppolo. He played well when he served as the starter for the Patriots this past season but has not receive a lot of playing time during his career. Garoppolo would only be a No. 2 quarterback if he is traded to the Cleveland.

Browns | CLE QBs coach likes Tyrod Taylor 'a lot'

Tue, 14 Feb 2017 21:37:45 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is liked "a lot" by new Cleveland Browns quarterbacks coach David Lee, who spent the past two years coaching Taylor in Buffalo. In addition, Lee would "welcome continuing to work with him."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's status with the Bills is still up in the air, as he's due a lot of guaranteed money and the team hasn't yet decided their course of action. Furthermore, Taylor isn't willing to take a pay cut. Thus, there is a decent chance he could be released, and if that happens, the Browns look like a good fit for the dual-threat quarterback. Even though the Browns are coming off a 1-15 campaign, they could still provide Taylor with a solid amount of ammo to keep him fantasy relevant.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor may be open to lowering cap hit

Fri, 10 Feb 2017 15:20:36 -0800

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is not willing to take a pay cut but may be open to restructuring his contract in order to reduce his salary cap hit for 2017 as long as it does not involve a pay cut.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills may be looking for ways to keep Taylor and still have a few weeks to make a final decision on his option. He should be a starting quarterback for a team in 2017 but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
