Bills | Tyrod Taylor named starter in Buffalo

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 08:27:06 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was named the starting quarterback Monday, Aug. 31, over QB Matt Cassel an QB EJ Manuel.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is a developing quarterback with some wheels. He's not as polished as a passer. He'll be a low-end QB2 selection that you can probably take a flyer on late in drafts.

Bills | EJ Manuel, Tyrod Taylor play well

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 07:05:59 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel went 7-for-8 for 170 yards and two touchdowns in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29. QB Tyrod Taylor went 12-for-13 for 122 yards and a rushing touchdown during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Manuel could be back in the competition for the starting job after his performance, but all three quarterbacks played well in the game. The Bills are expected to name a starter in the near future but that player will be no more than a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Bills | Buffalo QBs should play equally

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 12:07:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor are expected to play a series or two each Saturday, Aug. 29, versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Manuel will start.

Fantasy Tip: This could be the last big opportunity for all three quarterbacks to prove they deserve the Bills' starting quarterback job. Cassel has the experience, while Taylor and Manuel both offer more with their running ability, specifically Taylor. Whoever starts should not be a starting fantasy quarterback, however.

Bills | Buffalo to use rotation at QB?

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 11:31:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel may each be rotated in with the starting unit Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to Joe Buscaglia of WGR Sports Radio 550. All three quarterbacks have received first-team repetitions the last two practices.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was impressive when he started last week in the Bills' second preseason contest. Taylor gives the Bills more options with the offense, but Cassel has much more experience. Manuel seems to be the third option. None of them are worth starting on your fantasy squad.

Bills | Buffalo could keep three QBs

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 10:38:12 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel could all be on the Bills' final roster, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan said there is a high possibility that the Bills could keep all three quarterbacks, adding that Cassel, Taylor and Manuel would all receive playing time in their next preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has looked the most promising this preseason. He and Cassel seem to be the two favorites to start with Manuel lurking behind. Ryan may not name a starter until the preseason concludes. Whoever starts isn't worth starting as your fantasy quarterback.

Bills | All three Bills QBs seeing starter snaps

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 08:49:57 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel have all received snaps with the first-team offense during team drills Saturday, Aug. 22. Cassel was the first quarterback in the drills.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills may allow this competition to continue until the end of the preseason, but owners should receive some information when the team names a starter for the third preseason game. None of the Bills quarterbacks have much fantasy value and would not be more than a No. 2 quarterback in a deeper league.

Bills | Buffalo may wait on QB decision

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 12:15:52 -0700

Buffalo Bills QBs Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel are still competing for the starting quarterback job, but head coach Rex Ryan said the team may not announce the starter until Week 1. "This will probably play out," Ryan said. "Indianapolis might not know who the quarterback is until we play them. We may know, but they may not know."

Fantasy Tip: Cassel and Taylor appear to be the major candidates for the job and the third preseason game should answer some questions. Neither quarterback will be a great fantasy option for owners, so the winner of the job should only be seen as a No. 2 quarterback.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor plays well as starter

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 00:15:02 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 7-for-10 for 65 yards as the starting quarterback in the second preseason game Thursday, Aug. 20. Taylor also rushed for 41 yards on four carries. The team scored only three points during Taylor's drives.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's performance should help him in his fight for the starting quarterback job, but he will need to continue to produce. Taylor probably will not be a great option in fantasy leagues and probably will not be more than a No. 2 quarterback.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor could win starting job

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 13:00:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has a chance to win the starting quarterback job if he plays well in the second preseason game, in the opinion of NFL Network's Albert Breer.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is one of three candidates for the starting job and a solid performance will help his cause. Taylor would not be a great fantasy option if he wins the job and probably would only be a weak No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Bills | EJ Manuel appears out of race

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 05:42:03 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel appears to be out of the competition for starting quarterback with QB Matt Cassel and QB Tyrod Taylor. Cassel has shown good decision-making and command on offense. Taylor has had some accuracy issues.

Fantasy Tip: Whichever quarterback comes out as the starter is probably a weak QB2 in two-quarterback leagues.
