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.

Bills | No extension for Tyrod Taylor

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 11:18:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not receive a contract extension in light of the Bills drafting QB Cardale Jones. QB EJ Manuel's option is unlikely to be picked up, too.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor will start as long as he's healthy after a career year last season, but the future of the position remains a mystery. As for 2016, Taylor remains a fringe QB1.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor the guy in 2016

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:42:30 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is the team's starter in 2016, and general manager Doug Whaley said the team wouldn't consider drafting a quarterback to compete with him in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was impressive early last season. Can he recapture that magic, though? He's a solid backup in fantasy that could fill in on a bye week.

Bills | No trade offers for Tyrod Taylor

Wed, 20 Apr 2016 09:40:04 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor hasn't generated any trade offers leading up to the NFL Draft, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: Whaley has already said that Taylor will start at quarterback even if Buffalo drafts another QB early. Taylor had a career year in 2015, throwing for 3,035 yards and 20 touchdowns and also running for another 568 yards and four scores. The Bills question Taylor's long-term sustainability, though, but he makes for a nice fantasy backup as long as he's starting.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor working on footwork

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 09:26:31 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he's working on cleaning up his footwork in the pocket this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor had a successful year in Buffalo in 2015, throwing for 3,035 yards and 20 touchdowns with just six interceptions. He also ran 104 times for 568 yards and added four more scores. Buffalo hasn't committed to Taylor long term, but he should be their QB again in 2016, and his ability to put up points with his legs sets him apart from other options as your fantasy backup.

Broncos | Denver interested in Tyrod Taylor?

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 18:23:42 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could be a trade target for the Denver Broncos, according to reports.

Fantasy Tip: Trading Taylor seems unlikely, and assuming he stays with the Bills, he should be a high-end QB2 and a potential starting option in daily games against the right matchups.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor talks still need work

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 13:03:54 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's contract extension talks still need some work, according to general manager Doug Whaley.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills may believe they have their quarterback of the future after Taylor's breakout 2015 campaign. He proved himself to be one of the better dual-threat signal-callers in the NFL last year, giving him added value in fantasy leagues, too. He's still not quite a starting caliber fantasy quarterback, but he's a high-end fantasy backup.
