Bills | Tyrod Taylor impresses

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 07:14:48 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has impressed head coach Sean McDermott. "I've really been impressed with the leadership," McDermott said. "(He displayed) the intangible qualities that are inherent or must be inherent to that quarterback position. I've watched him develop in those areas and that's important as we look to move forward. There's leadership qualities at that quarterback position that are important to winning football games, and I think he's done a nice job in that area."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been a matchup play with some bright spots the last two seasons. He's much of the same this year as a QB2 in fantasy.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor a work in progress

Sat, 20 May 2017 19:39:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor needs to "trust his eyes" more and is still a work in progress when it comes to knowing when and where to throw the ball, according to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor should open the year as the starter in Buffalo, and his ability to throw the deep ball and create plays with his legs make him a solid QB2 and a potential starter against friendly matchups.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor will need to compete for job

Sun, 30 Apr 2017 14:53:34 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not be handed the starting quarterback job and will need to earn it during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is the leading candidate for the job, but he is not guaranteed the job with a new head coach. He had a solid 2016 season with 3,023 yards and 23 total touchdowns. Taylor should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and could be a starting option against certain options.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor fully healthy

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 20:43:47 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) declared he is 100 percent healthy as he stepped back onto the field with his teammates as part of voluntary offseason workouts. "I've felt great since the surgery, and the doctors here and the training staff have done a great job of getting me to 100 percent," Taylor said. "I've been training and I feel like I'm in great shape."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor seems to be in much better spirits than earlier in the offseason, when it was still unknown if he would be brought back as Buffalo's starting quarterback. Plus, he was still facing surgery. With both of those issues behind him, the 27-year-old appears poised to take another leap in 2017. He's been one of the most underrated QBs in all of football, as besides being a solid running threat, Taylor has accumulated 37 touchdown passes compared to just 12 interceptions over the last two seasons. He can provide great value at the end of drafts.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor to continue running in 2017

Sun, 02 Apr 2017 12:01:42 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's "exceptional mobility" will remain a prominent part of the offense, according to head coach Sean McDermott. "You've got to be able to run it to win games at the end of the game or to open up games, and that just opens up the play-action game with the play faking and getting Tyrod on the edge of the defense and trying to put ourselves in favorable third-down situations or red zone situations. That's a big part of the formula to playing winning football," McDermott said.

Fantasy Tip: McDermott also expressed how impressed he was by Taylor's rehab from groin surgery and willingness to "make himself available" to the new head coach this offseason. Taylor is also happy to be working with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who served as the quarterbacks coach when both men were in Baltimore in 2014. Assuming the Bills add a capable wide receiver opposite Sammy Watkins in this month's draft, Taylor could flirt with low-end QB1 production from time to time.

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 financial details

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.

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.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor more productive at home

Thu, 26 Jan 2017 10:01:28 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor threw for 1,675 yards, 12 touchdowns and three interceptions at home this season while throwing for 1,348 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions on the road.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's future with the Bills are uncertain at this point, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He likely will be a starting quarterback no matter where he plays in 2017 but probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor's surgery a non-factor for GM

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 10:00:34 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) is recovering from groin surgery, but general manager Doug Whaley will not use that as a factor in determining the quarterback's future with the Bills. Buffalo has until March 11 to pick up Taylor's contract option, which has an injury guarantee for $27.5 million. Taylor is said to be recovering on schedule.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has shown flashes, but a new system and staff could extract the most out of him. The massive contract is a far greater sticking point, however, and it seems to be a reach to expect him to return at this price. Stay tuned, but he isn't more than a QB2 in any conceivable situation.

Bills | New OC a good sign for Tyrod Taylor?

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 15:50:33 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor appears to have a good chance to remain with the team because he was part of the reason offensive coordinator Rick Dennison joined the coaching staff, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It would make no sense if the Bills hired Rick Dennison and got rid of Tyrod Taylor, one of the reasons (Dennison) signed there. So do not be surprised if Taylor is back, maybe on some sort of restructured contract for cap reasons. But this is very good news for the Bills' starter."

Fantasy Tip: Dennison coached Taylor when they were both with the Baltimore Ravens, but the Bills have to decide on Taylor's situation in the near future because of the option in his contract. Taylor posted decent numbers this season and likely will start for a team in 2017. His fantasy value is helped by his running ability, and he should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Browns | Browns may target Tyrod Taylor

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 20:59:54 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could draw interest from the Cleveland Browns if they cut QB Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Fantasy Tip: After the recent coaching shake-up in Buffalo, Taylor could find himself on another team next season, and it appears the Browns would be one of his top suitors. The 27-year-old is seemingly one of the more underrated quarterbacks in the league, having thrown for more than 3,000 yards, in addition to topping the 500-yard plateau on the ground, in each of the past two seasons, while accumulating 37 touchdowns combined over that span, compared to only 12 interceptions. No matter where he's lining up under center, Taylor will still be someone to watch.

Bills | New coach won't commit to Tyrod Taylor

Fri, 13 Jan 2017 18:07:55 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's future with the franchise has not yet been determined, and head coach Sean McDermott said he will methodically evaluate the quarterback position in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor isn't expected to be back with Buffalo. He can be a QB2 if he ends up starting somewhere, but his fantasy value is up in the air right now.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor won't be brought back

Fri, 06 Jan 2017 06:35:53 -0800

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor won't have his option exercised by the club, and the team intends to move on from him. The team has until March 11 to exercise his $15.5 million option, which would guarantee him $30.75 million over five seasons. The offense has picked up dramatically since he took over as they were 10th and 11th in scoring the last two years after finishing 26th the year before he took over.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was a sparkplug, but his performance hasn't been what it was coming out of the gates in 2015. That's not all his fault as Sammy Watkins has been oft-injured, and his secondary options to throw to have been underwhelming. Taylor will be a QB2 in fantasy wherever he lands.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor a fit in Cleveland?

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 19:14:39 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could draw interest from the Cleveland Browns if he hits the free agent market, according to beat writer Pat McManamon, because he is good fit for head coach Hue Jackson's run-first offense.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor would be an upgrade for the Browns at the quarterback spot, but no matter where he plays next year, he won't be more than a QB2.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor undergoing surgery

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 08:02:06 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) will undergo surgery to repair a core muscle Thursday, Jan. 5, and will require six weeks for recovery.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor will be an interesting commodity in next year's drafts. He seems unlikely to remain in Buffalo, and he really hasn't shown the form with which he burst onto the scene in 2015 since those initial weeks. Has he done enough to warrant landing a starting job elsewhere? In any event, he'll be a QB2 option that could have some upside in the right system.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor feels he should remain starter

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 09:00:52 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor believes he has done enough to remain starter in Buffalo, but he told reporters "that decision is on the Bills and we'll see what the future holds."

Fantasy Tip: There isn't a clear upgrade available in the draft or free agency, but Buffalo seems intent on moving on at the moment. Taylor's running skills should make him a high-upside QB2 at the very least wherever he ends up and he shouldn't really struggle for work should the Bills let him go, as nearly half the teams in the league could use an upgrade at quarterback.

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 12:25:13 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) is scheduled to meet with a doctor in Philadelphia to determine if he will need to undergo groin surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been on the injury report for a while but has been able to play. Owners should keep an eye on the situation because Taylor may be a free agent if the Bills do not pick up his option. He has a good chance to be a starting quarterback for a team in 2017 and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) has been dealing with a severe groin injury over the last month that may need more attention during the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills will have to decide if they will keep Taylor or if he will become a free agent this offseason. Taylor should be able to find a starting job with a team in 2017 and could be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) is out for Week 17 due to a hamstring injury, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

Fantasy Tip: EJ Manuel is expected to suit up against the New York Jets this week. His fantasy prowess is pretty minimal, but he could be a DFS flyer that could have some upside.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor will not play Week 17

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 09:25:48 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will reportedly be benched for Week 17 against the New York Jets. Buffalo reportedly does not want to take the chance of owing Taylor $30.75 million should he get hurt in the regular-season finale. Impending free-agent EJ Manuel will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills' indifference in regards to Taylor has been known for some time, although the decision to give Manuel a start seems ridiculous considering he has shown next to nothing since he was a first-round draft pick in 2013. The decision also seems foolish because this weekend would be a perfect opportunity to give rookie Cardale Jones some live action as well. With Manuel under center, virtually every Buffalo player - perhaps outside of LeSean McCoy if he goes - is not worthy of a start in fantasy.

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 15:13:26 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 26-for-39 for 329 yards and three touchdowns against the Miami Dolphins in Week 16. He also rushed for 60 yards on 12 carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor surpassed the 300-yard mark for the first time this season and his three touchdowns tied a season high. He should have a favorable matchup in Week 17 and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has not posted big passing numbers this season but has three touchdowns and only one interception in his last two games. He has also recorded five rushing touchdowns in his last eight games. Owners in most leagues probably can find better options to use and can avoid Taylor.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor unlikely to see revised deal

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 08:45:17 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is unlikely to have his contract renegotiated, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Rodak. Taylor is on the books for $27.5 million in 2017, and the team has until March 11 to exercise an option on Taylor's contract that would trigger the 2018 through 2021 years of the deal, paying him $15.5 million immediately and lowering his 2017 salary to a fully guaranteed $12 million.

Fantasy Tip: There is little chance the team will keep Taylor at the $27.5 million price tag, which means he could don a new uniform next season. Taylor has been spotty after a fast start to the 2015 season. His fantasy value is predicated on where he lands and if he lands as a starter. The best-case scenario is he's a QB2 in next year's fantasy drafts.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has posted similar numbers over the last few weeks and has been able to consistently find the end zone either with his arm or legs. Taylor will be facing the Miami Dolphins in Week 16 but probably should not be used in most leagues.
