| One of the most underrated fantasy football quarterbacks since taking the starting job in Buffalo back in 2015, Tyrod Taylor has quietly posted two consecutive seasons with at least 3000 passing and 500 rushing yards.
His 20.9 points per game average last year was better than Russell Wilson and just .10 of a point less than Derek Carr, two quarterbacks who have typically been drafted well ahead of Taylor in fantasy drafts this year.
Although Taylor managed to throw only 17 touchdowns last season, his 508 rushing yards and career-high six rushing touchdowns more than made up for his deficiency throwing TDs. With a healthy Sammy Watkins and the addition of second round rookie Zay Jones, Taylor has arguably his best-receiving duo since joining the team in 2015.
With a QB rank outside the top 12, Taylor will likely be used initially as a streaming quarterback in most 12 and ten team leagues, with Week 4 at the Falcons and home games against the Jets, Saints, Raiders, and Colts as possible lucrative matchups to exploit. But don't count out Taylor as a possible full time starting option, especially if he and Sammy Watkins can recreate the chemistry that made them a force in 2015. Taylor is an ideal target for those fantasy owners employing a late-round QB approach to their draft.

FFToday's Take: The loss of Matthews depletes an already weak receiving corps. Zay Jones and Andre Holmes appear to be Tyrod Taylor's top targets on the outside, but it may TE Charles Clay who sees an increase in target share.
| Tyrod Taylor still in concussion protocol|
Bills without a healthy QB heading into season

|Both Bills QBs Tyrod Taylor and T.J. Yates remain in the concussion protocol Tuesday. Bills coach Sean McDermott said he anticipates Nathan Peterman and Keith Wenning splitting time Thursday night against Detroit. McDermott said Tuesday he will "monitor" Taylor and Yates' situations as far as how much they will play Peterman and risk injury to their potential Week 1 starter. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Yikes. Things aren't off to a great start for the Bills in 2017. Anquan Boldin retired after a few days in Bills camp, and the team will need some veteran presence to help along rookie WR Zay Jones and get the passing offense going.
