Bills | Tyrod Taylor not guaranteed job

Tue, 06 Dec 2016 07:15:11 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor hasn't been guaranteed the starting job next season by head coach Rex Ryan. Taylor's completion percentage and yards per attempt are down from 2015, and he's on pace to throw fewer touchdown passes while being sacked more.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor came roaring out of the gates last season in his first stint as a starter, and he really hasn't replicated it. He's little more than a matchup play at this point, and the Pittsburgh Steelers don't present a good matchup. They're one of the better defenses against QBs the last five weeks.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor doesn't do much

Sun, 04 Dec 2016 22:35:51 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 18 of his 35 pass attempts for 191 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. He rushed three times for 30 yards and a score, too.

Fantasy Tip: The passing performance was disappointing considering how leaky the Oakland pass defense has been this season. Taylor remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 14.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 16:14:34 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: He should be good to go for Week 13. Taylor has been very solid for most leagues this season due to his rushing ability, and in fact, he's recorded a rushing touchdown in four of the past five weeks. As a result, he's in the QB1 conversation for owners looking to lock up a playoff berth.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 12 of his 18 pass attempts for 166 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also rushed seven times for 38 yards and a score.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor hasn't thrown for multiple touchdowns in any of the past five games, but he has rushed for a score in four of those five outings. That's what Taylor does. He doesn't lit it up in the pass game, but he is also an above-average runner with speed and a nose for the end zone.

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 14:27:27 -0800

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 19-for-27 for 166 yards and one interception against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. He also rushed for 39 yards on nine carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has thrown for less than 200 yards in four of his last six games but does have six passing touchdowns during that span.

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 20:26:34 -0800

Bills | Tyrod Taylor's production praised

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 18:25:26 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's production has been "satisfactory," according to offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn, and Lynn said the ball is going "where it's supposed to go" in the passing game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor's production is capped by Buffalo's run-first offense and the injury to Sammy Watkins, but his dual-threat ability makes him a serviceable fantasy backup.

Sun, 23 Oct 2016 16:39:36 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 14 of his 28 pass attempts for 221 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Miami Dolphins. He also ran seven times for a team-high 35 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is a solid dual-threat option and worth a look as a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams in most formats. The Bills host the Patriots in Week 8.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor has solid game

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 14:12:29 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 17-for-26 for 179 yards and two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6. He also rushed for 68 yards on eight carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has thrown five touchdowns in his last three games but has recorded at least 200 yards in only two of his six games this season. He can still be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues because of his ability to run with the ball.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor's yardage held down

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 22:02:21 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 12 of his 23 pass attempts for 124 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He also ran five times for 28 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor still managed to toss a pair of touchdowns to salvage the line for fantasy owners, but he has three passing performances of 124 yards or less in five starts. That simply won't do for fantasy owners. He has slipped from low-end QB1 to QB2 in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks but has recorded five total touchdowns in four weeks. He is scheduled to face the Los Angeles Rams next week and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been inconsistent with his passing stats over the first three weeks of the season but was productive with his legs in Week 3. He is scheduled to face the New England Patriots in Week 4 and will not be a great fantasy option in most leagues.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor with solid game

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 05:08:44 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was 18-for-30 (60%) for 297 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: This was a much better game than the 111 yards he threw for in Week 1. His line is aided by an 84-yard bomb he hit Marquise Goodwin on early in the game. Things won't get easier for them against the Arizona Cardinals next week. Taylor remains a QB2 in fantasy.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor does nothing in loss

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 21:48:58 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 111 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens, and he added five rushes for just 11 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was drafted as a borderline QB1/2 in most fantasy formats, but he killed his owners in the opener. Now, he gets a short week, but faces a New York Jets pass defense which was gouged for over 350 yards by Andy Dalton in Week 1. Taylor should be able to find a lot more room in Week 2.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 15-for-22 for 111 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. He also rushed for 11 yards on five carries.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was under pressure often against the Ravens and did not have much time to make plays. He will face the New York Jets in Week 2 and may be a risky option for owners because of the Jets have a solid defense.

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 21:30:18 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will see more action against the New York Giants Saturday, Aug. 20, than he did in the first preseason game, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor should be drafted as a midrange QB2, but he will have the occasional big game. He could be a sneaky DFS starter against the right opponents.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor contract update

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 16:00:51 -0700

Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to make $9.5 million in 2016 then the team will have to decide if they pick up his option next offseason. Taylor would receive $27.5 million in 2017 and his contract extension would start if the team picks up the option.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor will have to play well in 2016 if he wants to remain with the Bills after this season. The Bills are expected to be more of a running team, but Taylor should have the chance to post solid numbers. Owners in most leagues should consider him as a No. 2 quarterback.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor lands big deal

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 10:13:56 -0700

Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has agreed to terms on six-year, $90 million contract extension. The deal has unspecified team options and could be worth more through incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Yowzers ... we'll have to see how it breaks down, but that's a big deal for little proven production. Taylor remains a modest QB2 buy who has some upside for weekly matchup play.

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 10:12:18 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor should receive a multi-year deal soon, and sources say it will not be a stop-gap contract. Buffalo appears willing to go as long as six years in duration.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor emerged as a fine fantasy passer a year ago, but he has room to grow before becoming a regular starter for your fake roster.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor progressing in talks

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 11:16:36 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is making solid progress in contract extension talks with the Bills, but the two sides still have to work on the back end of the contract. Taylor likely will make $35 million in the first two years if an agreement is reached.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is coming off a solid season in 2015 and should be able to post similar numbers this season. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterbacks in a majority of fantasy leagues.

Bills | Optimism in Tyrod Taylor talks

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 06:03:16 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor continues to negotiate on a contract extension, and there's plenty of optimism that a deal is struck before the season opens.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor was one of the surprises out of the gates last season before he got nicked up. He completed 74.3% of his passes in the first three games with seven scores and an average of 238 passing yards per game. He didn't throw multiple touchdowns for nearly two months afterwards. That inconsistency keeps him in the QB2 range in fantasy.

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.

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was sharp in red zone drills Wednesday, June 1, hitting TE Chris Gragg for a pair of touchdowns.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
