    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has been benched for Week 11 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is unlikely to regain the starting role unless Nathan Peterman is injured, and he can be dropped. Peterman offers little appeal in fantasy for now.

  • Posted: 11/2/2017 9:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 29 of his 40 passing attempts for 285 yards and two touchdowns during the team's Week 9 loss to the New York Jets. Taylor added 35 yards and a touchdown on the ground as well.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's stat line is yet another reminder that individuals can have big games even when their team struggles. The dual-threat accounted for three touchdowns and more than 300 yards of offense, which fantasy owners will take every time out. Taylor took a pounding and fumbled twice (losing one), but this was his best day from a fantasy perspective. He's a solid QB2 that can start in the right matchups.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 2:44pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 20 of his 27 pass attempts for 165 yards, one touchdown while rushing for another score in Week 8 against the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: Taylor didn't do much from a fantasy perspective, but he remains a decent QB2 in deeper standard leagues and he can be an acceptable bye-week option. The Bills travel to face the Jets in Week 9 on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 8:27pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said it is time for him to 'separate from the pack' as a quarterback and do whatever it takes to lead the team to wins.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has struggled to make a consistent fantasy impact, and he hasn't thrown for more than 224 yards in a game this year. He draws a favorable matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7, but he is still only worth a look in two-quarterback leagues.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 6:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 20 of his 37 pass attempts for 166 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals and he rushed once for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Taylor just doesn't do much for fantasy owners on a consistent basis. He didn't have a lot of time to make things happen in this one, as he was sacked six times. The Bills are off in Week 6 before returning host to host the Buccaneers.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 4:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 12 of his 20 pass attempts for 182 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons and he ran seven times for 12 yards.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has posted five touchdowns and just one interception through four games, but his lack of yardage and scores makes him more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats. The Bills travel to Cincinnati in Week 5.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 2:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 20 of his 26 pass attempts for 213 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Broncos.

    Huddle Up: Taylor also rushed eight times for 13 yards in the surprising victory, moving the ball well against a normally stiff Denver defense. He might be a high-end QB2 in fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 in Atlanta against a Falcons defense which has given up plenty of passing yards.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 10:37am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will be the starting quarterback in Week 3 against the Denver Broncos, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is being set up to fail in Buffalo this season, but rookie Nathan Peterman probably isn't anywhere close to ready yet and the Bills probably don't want to throw him to the wolves against the Broncos anyway. It feels like the hook is coming soon for Taylor, so owners hoping for him to turn it around might want to pursue other options.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 3:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of his 25 pass attempts for 125 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 2 against the Panthers while running eight times for 55 yards.

    Huddle Up: The Bills were limited to just 176 total yards, as the Panthers defense was on fire for a second straight game. Taylor will look to rebound in Week 3, but he faces another tough defense when the Broncos come calling.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 3:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns on 16-for-28 passing in a 21-12 win over the New York Jets on Sunday, Sept. 10.

    Huddle Up: Before you get excited, keep in mind it was the Jets. Still, it is a good sign given the fact it was Taylor's first game under a new head coach. And he was coming off a concussion, which gives this performance a bit more heft. Give Taylor a few games before evaluating how you will use him. Right now, he's a decent QB2 if the matchup favors.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 12:06pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 8, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was sidelined for about a week because of the concussion but should be ready to play in Week 1. He likely will continue to be a dual threat quarterback and could be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in leagues because of his favorable matchup.

  • Posted: 9/7/2017 3:03pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 7.

    Huddle Up: Taylor will start in Week 1 as long as he does not suffer any setbacks over the next few days. He will be working with a new receiving corps this season but can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues this week because of his matchup.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 1:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) was able to take part in a full practice session on Wednesday, Sept. 6.

    Huddle Up: Taylor appears to be in line to start in Week 1 against the Jets, and it appears he'll have his newest weapon Jordan Matthews on the field as well. Taylor toasted the Jets for 297 yards and three passing scores in Week 2 last season in his only start against Gang Green.

  • Posted: 9/6/2017 6:48am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) has been cleared from the concussion protocol Wednesday, Sept. 6, and he's expected to start in Week 1 against the New York Jets, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Taylor had a good game against the Jets last season. He was 18-for-30 for 297 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. If your QB1 is out due to injury or circumstance in Week 1, Taylor is a decent fallback.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 12:38pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) passed the NFL's concussion protocol Tuesday, Sept. 5, and is expected to start this week, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's stock took a hit with the departure of Sammy Watkins, but he shouldn't be totally overlooked. He has a solid matchup this week versus the lowly Jets and his running ability gives him a distinct advantage. He's a low-end QB1 option and makes for a great replacement for those who drafted Andrew Luck.

  • Posted: 9/4/2017 7:46am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol Monday, Sept. 4.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's status for Week 1 is starting to teeter toward doubtful, but he is mostly just a depth player in fantasy. Nathan Peterman is in line to start if Taylor can't go, but he shouldn't see your lineup in fantasy.

  • Posted: 8/31/2017 2:06pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) remains in the concussion protocol, but general manager Brandon Beane feels good about Taylor's chances of playing Week 1. If Taylor is unable to take the field then Beane is still confident in rookie QB Nathan Peterman.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has a decent matchup on paper against the NY Jets in Week 1. His value has decreased with the departure of Sammy Watkins, but his running ability remains a key factor in his fantasy success.

  • Posted: 8/27/2017 1:21pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) will not participate in practice Sunday, Aug. 27, because he is in the concussion protocol.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has two weeks to recover from his concussion if he wants to be ready for the start of the regular season. He is working with a new receiving corps this season and may struggle early in the season. Owners in most leagues should consider him a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 5:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) exited the team's third preseason game Saturday, August 26, after hitting his head hard on the ground on the second drive of the game versus the Baltimore Ravens.

    Huddle Up: It's been an understandably rough preseason for Taylor, who lost top receiver Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams and was 13-for-31 over his first two games. Taylor is still a viable QB2 given his running ability, but he is highly unlikely to approach the low-end QB1 level he achieved over each of the last two seasons as Buffalo begins its rebuilding process.

  • Posted: 8/18/2017 1:58pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will start the third preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, and head coach Sean McDermott said he has all the confidence in the world in Taylor. Taylor will receive all of the first-team work against the Ravens and is expected to be the starting quarterback in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has struggled at times during the preseason, but he should be the starter for at least the start of the season. He recorded 3,023 passing yards and 23 total touchdowns in 2016. Taylor will be working with a new set of receivers this season but can still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 11:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will remain atop the depth chart, according to post-game comments from head coach Sean McDermott Thursday, Aug. 17. Taylor struggled badly during the team's preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: This seems like a silly question, but Taylor's struggles coupled with some surprisingly competent play from Nathan Peterman looks to have opened that can of worms. It's highly unlikely that, barring injury, anyone other than Taylor will be under center for Buffalo in Week 1, but in the wake of last week's trades and Taylor's reworked contract it's no longer unthinkable that the team could go full tank mode if things go south early on. It's something to consider when deciding whether or not you want Taylor as your QB2 for 2017.

  • Posted: 8/17/2017 7:48pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 8-for-18 for 53 yards and two interceptions in the preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday, Aug. 17.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is working with a new receiver corps this season and is still trying to build chemistry with them. He has posted solid numbers over the last few season and should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues. His running ability will help his fantasy value.

  • Posted: 8/3/2017 12:44pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has left something to be desired at camp so far, according to ESPN.com's Mike Rodak. Rodak noted inaccuracy as one of Taylor's struggles.

    Huddle Up: Don't fret, yet. There's plenty of time between now and the regular season. Taylor's running ability makes him one of the more tantalizing quarterbacks in the fantasy realm. He's not an elite passer, but those rushing stats make him a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 consideration.

  • Posted: 8/1/2017 11:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has not been sharp in the early stages of camp, particularly during 11-on-11 drills, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak, who writes that Taylor has been holding the ball too long and missing open receivers.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's long-term job security in Buffalo is dubious, but the team is unlikely to willingly go to TJ Yates or Nathan Peterman early in 2017. Given his dual-threat ability, Taylor is an interesting QB2 even with some underwhelming performances in training camp.

  • Posted: 7/27/2017 6:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor looked 'comfortable' during practice and was hitting receivers in stride Thursday, July 27, according to Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com.

    Huddle Up: Taylor enters the season as one of the better QB2 options and could make a serviceable starter against friendlier matchups.

  • Posted: 6/20/2017 7:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has impressed head coach Sean McDermott. 'I've really been impressed with the leadership,' McDermott said. '(He displayed) the intangible qualities that are inherent or must be inherent to that quarterback position. I've watched him develop in those areas and that's important as we look to move forward. There's leadership qualities at that quarterback position that are important to winning football games, and I think he's done a nice job in that area.'

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been a matchup play with some bright spots the last two seasons. He's much of the same this year as a QB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 5/20/2017 7:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor needs to 'trust his eyes' more and is still a work in progress when it comes to knowing when and where to throw the ball, according to offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

    Huddle Up: Taylor should open the year as the starter in Buffalo, and his ability to throw the deep ball and create plays with his legs make him a solid QB2 and a potential starter against friendly matchups.

  • Posted: 4/30/2017 2:53pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not be handed the starting quarterback job and will need to earn it during offseason workouts and training camp, according to head coach Sean McDermott.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is the leading candidate for the job, but he is not guaranteed the job with a new head coach. He had a solid 2016 season with 3,023 yards and 23 total touchdowns. Taylor should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues and could be a starting option against certain options.

  • Posted: 4/4/2017 8:43pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) declared he is 100 percent healthy as he stepped back onto the field with his teammates as part of voluntary offseason workouts. 'I've felt great since the surgery, and the doctors here and the training staff have done a great job of getting me to 100 percent,' Taylor said. 'I?ve been training and I feel like I?m in great shape.'

    Huddle Up: Taylor seems to be in much better spirits than earlier in the offseason, when it was still unknown if he would be brought back as Buffalo's starting quarterback. Plus, he was still facing surgery. With both of those issues behind him, the 27-year-old appears poised to take another leap in 2017. He's been one of the most underrated QBs in all of football, as besides being a solid running threat, Taylor has accumulated 37 touchdown passes compared to just 12 interceptions over the last two seasons. He can provide great value at the end of drafts.

  • Posted: 4/2/2017 12:01pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's 'exceptional mobility' will remain a prominent part of the offense, according to head coach Sean McDermott. 'You've got to be able to run it to win games at the end of the game or to open up games, and that just opens up the play-action game with the play faking and getting Tyrod on the edge of the defense and trying to put ourselves in favorable third-down situations or red-zone situations. That's a big part of the formula to playing winning football,' McDermott said.

    Huddle Up: McDermott also expressed how impressed he was by Taylor's rehab from groin surgery and willingness to 'make himself available' to the new head coach this offseason. Taylor is also happy to be working with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who served as the quarterbacks coach when both men were in Baltimore in 2014. Assuming the Bills add a capable wide receiver opposite Sammy Watkins in this month's draft, Taylor could flirt with low-end QB1 production from time to time.

  • Posted: 3/14/2017 5:55am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has cap numbers of $9.713 million in 2017 and $18.08 million in 2018. His deal will automatically void if he's on the roster the fifth day after the Super Bowl in Feb. 2019. The Bills will then carry $4.2 million in dead money in 2019, the remaining portion of his $7 million signing bonus he received with the restructure. His 2017 base salary drops from $12 million to $7.5 million, and he does not receive a $15.5 million option bonus because the Bills officially declined his option as part of the restructure. His 2018 salary drops from $13 million to $10 million, and only $1 million is guaranteed.

    Huddle Up: Taylor threw for 3,023 yards and rushed for 580 with 17 passing TDs, six picks and six rushing scores in 2016. He's a QB2, in fantasy, but he'll be a matchup play in DFS.

  • Posted: 3/8/2017 10:51am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor restructured his contract Tuesday, March 8, to remain with the Bills. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: The connection with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison is encouraging for fantasy purposes. Adding more weapons on the outside will be imperative for Taylor to grow. He's a sketchy QB2 but carries a good deal of upside.

  • Posted: 3/5/2017 10:45am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is of 'significant interest' to the Cleveland Browns should he end up on the open market as expected.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is reportedly the Browns' option should they choose not to pursue Jimmy Garoppolo, and it may be the smarter approach anyway. Any attempt to land Garoppolo would require significant draft pick compensation, while signing Taylor would allow the team to address its many non-quarterback weaknesses with the first and 12th picks in April's NFL Draft. Taylor would remain a fantasy QB2 in fantasy should he leave for Cleveland.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 9:32am ET

    The Buffalo Bills are 'leaning toward' moving on from QB Tyrod Taylor, according the Buffalo News' Vic Carucci.

    Huddle Up: The soap opera continues. Per Carucci, if the $30.75 million guaranteed wasn't tied to Taylor over the next two years, the Bills would likely be bringing him back for 2017. Taylor is unwilling to renegotiate, so it appears he could be on the way out. Taylor is expected to have no shortage of suitors on the market if he is released, as San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns and New York Jets are among the clubs who could use an established veteran quarterback.

  • Posted: 2/22/2017 5:27am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) was medically cleared following last month's groin surgery, according to a team source. He has a $27.5 million option bonus due March 11.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is unlikely to see that bonus and probably won't remain with the club. He has been a decent dual threat at the position, but he'll have to land in the right situation. Even then, he's a high-end QB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 2/21/2017 10:14am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor may not end up going anywhere after all, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who said there is 'better chance than not' Taylor remains with the Bills.

    Huddle Up: Taylor will have suitors should he hit the market and is not open to a contract restructure, so Buffalo is either going to swallow hard on committing $30.75 million to him over the next two years or move on without him. A return seems the most likely outcome because the Bills know what they have in Taylor and new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison has worked with him before. Even in a slightly more wide-open offense than what he's had in his first two years with Buffalo, Taylor could flirt with low-end QB1 status.

  • Posted: 2/14/2017 9:37pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is liked 'a lot' by new Cleveland Browns quarterbacks coach David Lee, who spent the past two years coaching Taylor in Buffalo. In addition, Lee would 'welcome continuing to work with him.'

    Huddle Up: Taylor's status with the Bills is still up in the air, as he's due a lot of guaranteed money and the team hasn't yet decided their course of action. Furthermore, Taylor isn't willing to take a pay cut. Thus, there is a decent chance he could be released, and if that happens, the Browns look like a good fit for the dual-threat quarterback. Even though the Browns are coming off a 1-15 campaign, they could still provide Taylor with a solid amount of ammo to keep him fantasy relevant.

  • Posted: 2/3/2017 10:55am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor wants to remain in Buffalo, but admitted Friday, Feb. 3, in an interview on the team-produced radio show he is waiting to see whether 'management chooses to keep (me) around'.

    Huddle Up: Taylor had groin surgery last month and is in a race against the clock to get healthy enough to pass a physical before March 9 that could determine whether or not the Bills can release him. Buffalo may have signaled its desire to keep him around when it hired new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, but it will be up to Taylor's health and willingness to agree to a more team-friendly contract (he's guaranteed $30.75 million in 2017 if he cannot pass the physical) that determines whether he stays or goes.

  • Posted: 1/25/2017 10:00am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) is recovering from groin surgery, but general manager Doug Whaley will not use that as a factor in determining the quarterback's future with the Bills. Buffalo has until March 11 to pick up Taylor's contract option, which has an injury guarantee for $27.5 million. Taylor is said to be recovering on schedule.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has shown flashes, but a new system and staff could extract the most out of him. The massive contract is a far greater sticking point, however, and it seems to be a reach to expect him to return at this price. Stay tuned, but he isn't more than a QB2 in any conceivable situation.

  • Posted: 1/20/2017 3:50pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor appears to have a good chance to remain with the team because he was part of the reason offensive coordinator Rick Dennison joined the coaching staff, in the opinion of NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 'It would make no sense if the Bills hired Rick Dennison and got rid of Tyrod Taylor, one of the reasons (Dennison) signed there. So do not be surprised if Taylor is back, maybe on some sort of restructured contract for cap reasons. But this is very good news for the Bills' starter.'

    Huddle Up: Dennison coached Taylor when they were both with the Baltimore Ravens, but the Bills have to decide on Taylor's situation in the near future because of the option in his contract. Taylor posted decent numbers this season and likely will start for a team in 2017. His fantasy value is helped by his running ability, and he should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/17/2017 8:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could draw interest from the Cleveland Browns if they cut QB Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

    Huddle Up: After the recent coaching shake-up in Buffalo, Taylor could find himself on another team next season, and it appears the Browns would be one of his top suitors. The 27-year-old is seemingly one of the more underrated quarterbacks in the league, having thrown for more than 3,000 yards, in addition to topping the 500-yard plateau on the ground, in each of the past two seasons, while accumulating 37 touchdowns combined over that span, compared to only 12 interceptions. No matter where he's lining up under center, Taylor will still be someone to watch.

  • Posted: 1/13/2017 6:07pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's future with the franchise has not yet been determined, and head coach Sean McDermott said he will methodically evaluate the quarterback position in the coming weeks.

    Huddle Up: Taylor isn't expected to be back with Buffalo. He can be a QB2 if he ends up starting somewhere, but his fantasy value is up in the air right now.

  • Posted: 1/6/2017 6:35am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor won't have his option exercised by the club, and the team intends to move on from him. The team has until March 11 to exercise his $15.5 million option, which would guarantee him $30.75 million over five seasons. The offense has picked up dramatically since he took over as they were 10th and 11th in scoring the last two years after finishing 26th the year before he took over.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was a sparkplug, but his performance hasn't been what it was coming out of the gates in 2015. That's not all his fault as Sammy Watkins has been oft-injured, and his secondary options to throw to have been underwhelming. Taylor will be a QB2 in fantasy wherever he lands.

  • Posted: 1/5/2017 7:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could draw interest from the Cleveland Browns if he hits the free agent market, according to beat writer Pat McManamon, because he is good fit for head coach Hue Jackson's run-first offense.

    Huddle Up: Taylor would be an upgrade for the Browns at the quarterback spot, but no matter where he plays next year, he won't be more than a QB2.

  • Posted: 1/5/2017 8:02am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) will undergo surgery to repair a core muscle Thursday, Jan. 5, and will require six weeks for recovery.

    Huddle Up: Taylor will be an interesting commodity in next year's drafts. He seems unlikely to remain in Buffalo, and he really hasn't shown the form with which he burst onto the scene in 2015 since those initial weeks. Has he done enough to warrant landing a starting job elsewhere? In any event, he'll be a QB2 option that could have some upside in the right system.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 9:00am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor believes he has done enough to remain starter in Buffalo, but he told reporters 'that decision is on the Bills and we'll see what the future holds.'

    Huddle Up: There isn't a clear upgrade available in the draft or free agency, but Buffalo seems intent on moving on at the moment. Taylor's running skills should make him a high-upside QB2 at the very least wherever he ends up and he shouldn't really struggle for work should the Bills let him go, as nearly half the teams in the league could use an upgrade at quarterback.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 7:40am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin, rest) returned to practice Friday, Dec. 30, after he was given a veteran's day off the previous day.

    Huddle Up: EJ Manuel is expected to start against the New York Jets this week, and Taylor's fantasy value has dissipated.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 1:23pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: EJ Manuel will start Week 17 with Taylor hurting. Taylor's future with the Bills could be in jeopardy with Buffalo looking for a new head coach and other staff members. If he remains the starter then he'll be a late-round fantasy draft option next year.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 8:50am ET

    Updating previous reports, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) is out for Week 17 due to a hamstring injury, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.

    Huddle Up: EJ Manuel is expected to suit up against the New York Jets this week. His fantasy prowess is pretty minimal, but he could be a DFS flyer that could have some upside.

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will reportedly be benched for Week 17 against the New York Jets. Buffalo reportedly does not want to take the chance of owing Taylor $30.75 million should he get hurt in the regular-season finale. Impending free-agent EJ Manuel will start in his place.

    Huddle Up: The Bills' indifference in regards to Taylor has been known for some time, although the decision to give Manuel a start seems ridiculous considering he has shown next to nothing since he was a first-round draft pick in 2013. The decision also seems foolish because this weekend would be a perfect opportunity to give rookie Cardale Jones some live action as well. With Manuel under center, virtually every Buffalo player - perhaps outside of LeSean McCoy if he goes - is not worthy of a start in fantasy.
