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.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor won't restructure

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 20:43:54 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is unwilling to agree to a restructured deal that would reduce his pay, according to beat writer Vic Carucci.

Fantasy Tip: Buffalo seems determined to run off Taylor, but his numbers the last two seasons have been respectable. He should land a starting jon somewhere and will be a quality QB2 in 2017.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor may be option for Browns

Wed, 08 Feb 2017 12:48:46 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor may be an option for the Cleveland Browns this offseason if Taylor becomes available and the Browns are unable to acquire New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Quarterbacks coach David Lee worked with Taylor over the last two seasons when he was part of the Bills coaching staff.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor likely would receive interest from multiple teams if he becomes available this offseason, but the Browns' hiring of Lee could help their chances with Taylor. He has posted decent numbers over the past few seasons but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he signs.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor familiar with OC's system

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 12:29:40 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he is familiar with the scheme offensive coordinator Rick Dennison likely will bring to the team next season. Dennison served as the quarterbacks coach when Taylor was with the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Tip: Dennison's hire could help Taylor remain with the team, but the Bills will have to make a decision in the near future. Taylor posted solid numbers in 2016 but probably should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback no matter where he plays.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor focused on rehab

Sat, 04 Feb 2017 11:58:31 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) said he is focusing on recovering from his core muscle surgery and is not worrying about his contract situation.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills will have to make a decision on Taylor's contract in the near future, so owners should monitor the situation. Taylor is familiar with offensive coordinator Rick Dennison's offense and probably would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he stays with the Bills. He probably would be able to find a starting job if is available in free agency but would still be a No. 2 quarterback.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor uncertain about future

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 10:55:37 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor wants to remain in Buffalo, but admitted Friday, Feb. 3, in an interview on the team-produced radio show he is waiting to see whether "management chooses to keep (me) around".

Fantasy Tip: Taylor had groin surgery last month and is in a race against the clock to get healthy enough to pass a physical before March 9 that could determine whether or not the Bills can release him. Buffalo may have signaled its desire to keep him around when it hired new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, but it will be up to Taylor's health and willingness to agree to a more team-friendly contract (he's guaranteed $30.75 million in 2017 if he cannot pass the physical) that determines whether he stays or goes.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor could still be retained

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 13:48:25 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has not yet been given up on in Buffalo, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The Bills could still try to bring back Taylor with a lesser contract.

Fantasy Tip: The question is whether or not Taylor will want to come back on less money. He hasn't been treated the best in Buffalo, but he would be playing for a new coaching staff. His running ability makes him an even better fantasy quarterback, so keep a finger on the proverbial pulse as the offseason progresses. Taylor could be a borderline QB1 if he's healthy and lands in the right situation.

Cardinals | Arizona likes Tyrod Taylor

Thu, 02 Feb 2017 13:32:56 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor "is very appealing to Arizona," according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Furthermore, Taylor would make a great fit in head coach Bruce Arians' scheme if the Bills choose to move on from their quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: There's still plenty of time to make conjectures before the draft, and Taylor's name will be the subject of many of those conjectures. Arizona's quarterback situation does need to be addressed soon with Carson Palmer's age and subsequent decline. He can no longer be considered a starting fantasy quarterback.
