Tyrod Taylor Fantasy Analysis

  • Bills going with Taylor
    The Bills are going with Tyrod Taylor as their starting QB to open the season, according to insider Jay Glazer.  HC Rex Ryan isn't expected to make an official announcement before Week 1, but we figured the decision would get leaked.  And Glazer is as reliable as they come.  Taylor has looked like Buffalo's best QB this preseason, completing 77.4% of his passes, averaging 7.6 yards per attempt and running for 108 yards and a score.  It's that rushing ability that will make Taylor an intriguing spot-start option, especially in DFS.  The Bills are expected to run the read-option with him.  That's also good news for RB LeSean McCoy.  We're decidedly less excited about Buffalo's pass-catchers.

  • Manuel to start Saturday
    The Bills announced Thursday that QB EJ Manuel will start Saturday's exhibition game against the Steelers. HC Rex Ryan reportedly said Manuel has "earned the shot," but he also said Tyrod Taylor and Matt Cassel would see 1st-team snaps as well. This competition's probably not over, but we'd still bet on Taylor emerging as the Week 1 starter -- barring a strong finish to the preseason by Manuel. Of course, if you're in the position of having to bet on the Bills QB, then it might be time to re-evaluate. Full Story

  • Taylor running the read-option
    Bills insider Tyler Dunne reports that OC Greg Roman has "trained Tyrod Taylor in the read-option" this offseason.  Roman ran the read-option with QB Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco and figures to do the same in Buffalo if Taylor is under center.  Taylor's athleticism is his greatest strength -- and it's also what could make him a sneaky spot-start option in fantasy this year.  The read-option would also be good news for RB LeSean McCoy's value.

  • Bills won't announce starting QB until Week 1
    Bills HC Rex Ryan isn't planning on revealing his starting QB until just prior to the team's Week 1 game against the Colts.  "I'm not going to make that decision until we play Indy," Ryan said. "Competitive reasons, whatever. Go for it. We don't need to tell them. Until the league makes us tell them, we can just go right up in there and say, 'We're not gonna say anything.'  We may know. But why would we say any different? The quarterbacks that we're talking about, they're all three different. So plan for all three of them. And I think that's smart on our part."  Can't argue with Ryan's logic there.  And none of the Bills QBs should be a major part of your fantasy draft plans anyway.  The smart money is on Tyrod Taylor winning the job, but he's only worth considering as a 3rd QB in best-ball leagues.

  • Taylor sharp in preseason start
    Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was efficient if not spectacular in Thursday night's preseason game.  Playing the entire 1st half with the starting offense, he completed 7 of 10 passes for 65 yards, 0 TDs and 0 INTs.  Taylor added 41 yards on 4 carries, including a 21-yard gain on a read-option play.  It's that rushing ability that could make this guy a sneaky fantasy option.  If Thursday night's game was an audition for the starting job as we've heard it was, Taylor is now the favorite to be Buffalo's Week 1 starter.
