2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Bills expected to start Nathan Peterman at QB
Knee injury for Tyrod Taylor
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 10, 7:15 am

Buffalo Bills
Buffalo is expected to start rookie QB Nathan Peterman vs Colts with QB Tyrod Taylor questionable with a knee injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Peterman took the majority of reps in practice this week so this doesn't come as a surprise. Peterman was a disaster in his last start against the Chargers, throwing 5 INTs in the first half. Kelvin Benjamin, Zay Jones and TE Charles Clay are not desirable fantasy options.


Injury Tyrod Taylor a gametime decision
Knee injury
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Dec 8, 11:50 am

Buffalo Bills
The Bills' starting quarterback will be a game-time decision, coach Sean McDermott said Friday. With Tyrod Taylor battling a knee injury, McDermott said the team was working through Taylor's availability. McDermott said earlier this week that Taylor is the starter when healthy. (Buffalo News)

FFToday's Take: If Taylor sits, Nathan Peterman would be the starter and we've seen what kind of disaster that could be. In positive news, Kelvin Benjamin should return to action which should help the offense as a whole.


Injury Tyrod Taylor misses practice
Patellar tendon contusion
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 6, 10:56 am

Buffalo Bills
Tyrod Taylor's status for Sunday's crucial clash with the Indianapolis Colts is up in the air. Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters that there is no timetable on a decision on who will start at quarterback this week. Taylor will not practice Wednesday after suffering a patellar tendon contusion in the Bills' Week 13 loss to New England. The starting QB remains day to day. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: The Bills offense has not been fantasy friendly lately and it will be even tougher to trust anyone in this offense with Tyrod Taylor at less than full strength or rookie Nathan Peterman getting his second career start this weekend against the Patriots.


Tyrod Tylor to start for Bills
Sean McDermott switches quarterbacks for second week in a row
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 22, 10:17 am

Buffalo Bills
Nathan Peterman's stint as Buffalo's top passer didn't last long. Bills coach Sean McDermott announced Wednesday that Tyrod Taylor will return to his starting quarterback role for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. "It's the right thing for our team," McDermott told reporters. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Buffalo dealt with national scrutiny after Nate Peterman's poor debut a week ago so it isn't a surprise to see Tyrod Taylor named the starter for Week 12. Taylor's return boosts the fantasy value of the entire Bills offense.


Bills QB Tyrod Taylor benched
Nathan Peterman to start vs. Chargers
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Nov 15, 10:30 am

Buffalo Bills
In a surprise decision Wednesday, the Buffalo Bills benched Tyrod Taylor in favor of a rookie quarterback. Bills coach Sean McDermott told reporters that Nathan Peterman will start against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. "This is about becoming a better team. Tyrod has made improvements," McDermott explained to reporters. "This is not an indictment on Tyrod. He is an important part of our team and will continue to be an important part of our team. (NFL.com)

FFToday's Take: Buffalo's decision appears to be less about the team's recent losses and more about the future of the franchise. Unless an injury were to occur, Tyrod Taylor isn't likely to see the field again in 2017 and can be safely dropped. Nathan Peterman enters a tough situation to be find immediate fantasy success. The team is facing one of the better pass defenses in the league on the road this week making all Bills players risky fantasy plays for Week 11.


Injury Zay Jones out, Clay expected to play
Bills TE hasn't played since Week 5
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 10, 11:30 am

Buffalo Bills
Left tackle Cordy Glenn and wide receiver Zay Jones have been ruled out for the game because of injuries. Jones hurt his knee against the Jets and the rookie’s absence will open up more room for Kelvin Benjamin in the offense as Benjamin makes his Bills debut after last week’s trade with the Panthers. Tight end Charles Clay is questionable, although the signs have been positive about his return from a knee injury. (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: The Bills should have their tight end back but will be missing WR Zay Jones. Benjamin and Jordan Matthews should be the main targets on the outside for Tyrod Taylor. Clay is a viable tight end streamer for those desperate for a warm body at the position.


Injury Jordan Matthews expected to play
Broken thumb
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 22, 7:35 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews (broken thumb) is expected to play today with a special glove vs. #Bucs, sources say. 2 wks earlier then expected. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Matthews broke his thumb in Week 4 so it's a bit of a surprise he has returned this early. He does give Tyrod Taylor some much needed help in a depleted receiving corps but Matthews has been nothing more than a WR5, having caught no more than 3 balls in any game this season.


Injury Jordan Matthews out at least a month
Thumb surgery
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Oct 2, 7:15 am

Buffalo Bills
Bills WR Jordan Matthews will undergo thumb surgery and is expected to miss at least a month. (Sal Capaccio on Twitter)

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.
