Bills | Robert Woods could be replaced

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 18:34:25 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods had just two catches for more than 22 yards last year, and beat writer Jerry Sullivan believes QB Tyrod Taylor's love for the deep ball will lead to Woods being replaced as the No. 2 receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Woods' blocking ability will likely keep him on the field in Buffalo's run-heavy offense, but at best, he is a WR5. Don't be surprised if someone else emerges as the second-best fantasy receiver behind Sammy Watkins, but the depth chart is cloudy.

Bills | Sammy Watkins to stay in stride with QB

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 08:27:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) said he and QB Tyrod Taylor have something planned to make up for the lost time in training camp. "We're not going to go the whole time without doing anything," Watkins said. "We're going to get on the right page and make sure we stay there. It's really good that he's progressing, now I've got to progress with him."

Fantasy Tip: Watkins has had his share of injuries in his first two years, but you can't deny his talent and potential. He's a WR2 in fantasy with the tools for more.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor extension possible

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:52:31 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could sign a contract extension before the season starts, according to sources. The two sides are talking relatively frequently, but nothing is considered imminent.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor came out of nowhere last season to make a big splash in the first few weeks of the season. He completed 63.7% of his passes for 3,035 yards, 20 touchdowns and only six interceptions. He also rushed for 568 yards and four scores in 14 games. He turns 27 next month and enters a "prove it" season, where he'll be a high-end QB2 in fantasy.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor not worried about contract

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 13:07:23 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is entering the final year of his contract but said he is only focused on leading the team to wins in 2016. "The contract situation will play out. My mindset is to go out there and win games," Taylor said. "Do whatever it takes to win games, lead the guys, be the leader on the field, off the field and a commander. But I'm not necessarily focused on the contract. I can't control that. ... I've always been one that focuses on the things I can control, and that's going to be my preparation and how I go out there and play. I'll let everything else take care of itself."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor will be entering his second season as the Bills starting quarterback and will look to improve on the 3,035 passing yards and 20 touchdowns he recorded in 2016. The Bills probably will continue to be more of a running team, but Taylor should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Bills | Robert Woods played with serious injury

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 13:38:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods (groin) played with a torn groin on both the left and right side for about half the season last year. Woods said he feels great now, though, and he looked more quick and explosive this offseason, too. Additionally, wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal said Woods' route-running is better than he's ever seen.

Woods said that his chemistry with QB Tyrod Taylor has also improved due to first-team repetitions with each other, and after playing together some of last season.

Fantasy Tip: It's easy to get hyped about a player during the offseason, but expectations should still be tempered for Woods. He'll probably be the Bills' No. 2 wide receiver, but he shouldn't be drafted as more than a WR5.

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.
