2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Former Ravens backup Tyrod Taylor surprisingly won the Bills starting quarterback job over former first round pick EJ Manuel and veteran Matt Cassel last pre-season. He then proved that head coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Greg Roman made the right choice. In 14 games, Taylor threw for 3,035 yards with 20 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions while also adding 568 yards and 4 touchdowns on the ground. Reports from Buffalo’s OTAs and minicamp have been positive about Taylor’s improvement, but the franchise still does not want to commit to him long term. They will let him play out the last year of his contract before deciding whether they want to offer him franchise quarterback type money.

Roman ran a conservative run-heavy offense, and with Rex Ryan famous for his “ground and pound” philosophy don’t expect that to change much in 2016. Taylor is a bit undersized at 6’1” and 215 pounds, but has decent downfield accuracy and did not turn the ball over making him valuable in the conservative Bills’ offense. He was also a big part of the rushing attack which increases his value against his peers. He finished second only to Cam Newton in rushing yards amongst quarterbacks. Taylor needs to show an improved command of the offense but the former sixth-round pick is only 26 years old and has the upside to improve in his second season as a starter. With his ability to gain yards on the ground and a legitimate difference maker on the outside (Sammy Watkins) Taylor is a perfect high ceiling fantasy QB2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Rick Dennison set to become Bills' new OC
Longtime Broncos OL coach/play-caller
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 19, 7:25 pm

Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills have announced that the team has agreed to terms for Rick Dennison to become the team's offensive coordinator. (BuffaloBills.com)

FFToday's Take: After flirting with Greg Olson initially, Buffalo lands a solid veteran play-caller in Dennison, who helped mold some of Denver's great offensive lines in the late 90s. He was the QB coach in Baltimore in 2014 when Tyrod Taylor was still Joe Flacco's backup, so perhaps Taylor will stick around after all. Dennison has been more of a run-oriented play-caller throughout his career, so LeSean McCoy owners should be fine with this hire.


Injury Tyrod Taylor a candidate for surgery?
May need groin/hernia surgery in near future
By: Doug Orth | Thu Dec 29, 6:40 pm

Buffalo Bills
Tyrod Taylor will be traveling to Philadelphia in the near future to determine if he needs groin/hernia surgery. (Vic Carucci on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Buffalo News reported Thursday that Taylor has been dealing with a "severe groin injury" for the better part of a month, so the Bills may be forced to stick with him since his contract calls for a guaranteed $30.75 M if he cannot pass a physical by the start of the new league year (early March). Buffalo GM Doug Whaley apparently feels he can do better than Taylor at quarterback, but it's hard to see them getting a better option in this year's draft or via free agency.


Tyrod Taylor to the bench, EJ Manuel to start
Bills don't want to risk injury to Taylor
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Dec 27, 11:00 am

Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills are planning to bench Tyrod Taylor in their regular-season finale against the New York Jets and start EJ Manuel at quarterback, league sources have told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Bills are at risk for the $30.75 million remaining on Taylor's contract that would become guaranteed if he suffered a significant injury. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: The Bills are getting a jump on 2017 after firing head coach Rex Ryan, defensive assistant Rob Ryan. The switch at quarterback appears to be a business decision as they would owe Taylor the remainder of his contract if he gets injured. The Bills face the Jets in New York on Sunday.
