    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.

    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.

  • Posted: 12/27/2016 9:25am ET

    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.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 5:19pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's scrambling ability bolsters his fantasy value, but he should still be viewed as a QB2 in Week 16.

  • Posted: 12/20/2016 8:45am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is unlikely to have his contract renegotiated, in the opinion of beat writer Mike Rodak. Taylor is on the books for $27.5 million in 2017, and the team has until March 11 to exercise an option on Taylor's contract that would trigger the 2018 through 2021 years of the deal, paying him $15.5 million immediately and lowering his 2017 salary to a fully guaranteed $12 million.

    Huddle Up: There is little chance the team will keep Taylor at the $27.5 million price tag, which means he could don a new uniform next season. Taylor has been spotty after a fast start to the 2015 season. His fantasy value is predicated on where he lands and if he lands as a starter. The best-case scenario is he's a QB2 in next year's fantasy drafts.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 5:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: With a juicy matchup against Cleveland on tap, Taylor could be a sneaky sleeper in DFS formats in Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 2:36pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will start in Week 15, according to head coach Rex Ryan.

    Huddle Up: Taylor hasn't been stellar this year, but he's been decent. Injuries have tainted his supporting cast for several games, but he's barely out of QB1 territory on the year. Against the Browns next week, though, it's hard to ignore how favorable of a matchup he has. Don't give up on him just yet unless you have a weekly QB1 option.

  • Posted: 12/8/2016 5:24pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) remained a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is upside is limited by Buffalo's run-heavy approach, but his scrambling ability makes him a quality QB2.

  • Posted: 12/6/2016 7:15am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor hasn't been guaranteed the starting job next season by head coach Rex Ryan. Taylor's completion percentage and yards per attempt are down from 2015, and he's on pace to throw fewer touchdown passes while being sacked more.

    Huddle Up: Taylor came roaring out of the gates last season in his first stint as a starter, and he really hasn't replicated it. He's little more than a matchup play at this point, and the Pittsburgh Steelers don't present a good matchup. They're one of the better defenses against QBs the last five weeks.

  • Posted: 12/4/2016 10:35pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 18 of his 35 pass attempts for 191 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 13 game against the Oakland Raiders. He rushed three times for 30 yards and a score, too.

    Huddle Up: The passing performance was disappointing considering how leaky the Oakland pass defense has been this season. Taylor remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy formats heading into Week 14.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 4:14pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (groin) practiced in full Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: He should be good to go for Week 13. Taylor has been very solid for most leagues this season due to his rushing ability, and in fact, he's recorded a rushing touchdown in four of the past five weeks. As a result, he's in the QB1 conversation for owners looking to lock up a playoff berth.

  • Posted: 11/27/2016 6:41pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 12 of his 18 pass attempts for 166 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 12 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also rushed seven times for 38 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Taylor hasn't thrown for multiple touchdowns in any of the past five games, but he has rushed for a score in four of those five outings. That's what Taylor does. He doesn't lit it up in the pass game, but he is also an above-average runner with speed and a nose for the end zone.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 2:27pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 19-for-27 for 166 yards and one interception against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. He also rushed for 39 yards on nine carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has thrown for less than 200 yards in four of his last six games but does have six passing touchdowns during that span. His ability to run the football helps his fantasy value, and he can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues next week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • Posted: 11/7/2016 8:26pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 27 of his 38 pass attempts for 289 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 9 game against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Nov. 7. He also ran eight times for 43 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: It was an impressive performance for Taylor against a sturdy Seattle defense. The Bills are off in Week 10 before returning in Week 11 at Cincinnati.

  • Posted: 11/5/2016 6:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's production has been 'satisfactory,' according to offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn, and Lynn said the ball is going 'where it's supposed to go' in the passing game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor's production is capped by Buffalo's run-first offense and the injury to Sammy Watkins, but his dual-threat ability makes him a serviceable fantasy backup.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 4:39pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 14 of his 28 pass attempts for 221 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 7 game against the Miami Dolphins. He also ran seven times for a team-high 35 yards and a touchdown.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is a solid dual-threat option and worth a look as a low-end QB1 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams in most formats. The Bills host the Patriots in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 2:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 17-for-26 for 179 yards and two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6. He also rushed for 68 yards on eight carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has thrown five touchdowns in his last three games but has recorded at least 200 yards in only two of his six games this season. He can still be considered a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues because of his ability to run with the ball.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 10:02pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 12 of his 23 pass attempts for 124 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He also ran five times for 28 yards.

    Huddle Up: Taylor still managed to toss a pair of touchdowns to salvage the line for fantasy owners, but he has three passing performances of 124 yards or less in five starts. That simply won't do for fantasy owners. He has slipped from low-end QB1 to QB2 in all formats.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 12:59pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 27-for-39 for 246 yards and one touchdown against the New England Patriots in Week 4. He also rushed for 28 yards on five carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks but has recorded five total touchdowns in four weeks. He is scheduled to face the Los Angeles Rams next week and can be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 2:25pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 14-for-25 for 119 yards and one interception against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3. He also rushed for 76 yards and one touchdown on nine carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been inconsistent with his passing stats over the first three weeks of the season but was productive with his legs in Week 3. He is scheduled to face the New England Patriots in Week 4 and will not be a great fantasy option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/16/2016 5:08am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was 18-30-297 with three touchdowns and one interception in week 2.

    Huddle Up: This was a much better game than the 111 yards he threw for in Week 1. His line is aided by an 84-yard bomb he hit Marquise Goodwin on early in the game. Things won't get easier for them against the Arizona Cardinals next week. Taylor remains a QB2 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 9/15/2016 8:01pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) returned against the New York Jets Thursday, Sept. 15, after being evaluated for a concussion.

    Huddle Up: Taylor can deliver big plays with his arm and his legs, and he is a QB1 candidate when the matchups are friendly.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 9:48pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor completed 15 of his 22 pass attempts for 111 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens, and he added five rushes for just 11 yards.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was drafted as a borderline QB1/2 in most fantasy formats, but he killed his owners in the opener. Now, he gets a short week, but faces a New York Jets pass defense which was gouged for over 350 yards by Andy Dalton in Week 1. Taylor should be able to find a lot more room in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/11/2016 1:17pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor went 15-for-22 for 111 yards against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 1. He also rushed for 11 yards on five carries.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was under pressure often against the Ravens and did not have much time to make plays. He will face the New York Jets in Week 2 and may be a risky option for owners because of the Jets have a solid defense.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 7:18pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is scheduled to make $9.5 million in 2016 then the team will have to decide if they pick up his option next offseason. Taylor would receive $27.5 million in 2017 and his contract extension would start if the team picks up the option.

    Huddle Up: Taylor gets a significant raise but the Bills also protect themselves in case he regresses after a breakout 2015 season. If Taylor continues to play well, the Bills will obviously pick up the option. Taylor currently has a an ADP of Round 11, making him a popular late QB option for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 2:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has agreed to terms on six-year, $90 million contract extension. The deal has unspecified team options and could be worth more through incentives.

    Huddle Up: As has been speculated for the last few weeks, Taylor's big payday has arrived, but that also ratchets up the pressure on the second-year starter to improved on his solid debut season in Buffalo a year ago. He's currently ranked as a low-end QB2, but there is upside.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 2:02pm ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor should receive a multi-year deal soon, and sources say it will not be a stop-gap contract. Buffalo appears willing to go as long as six years in duration.

    Huddle Up: One thought was that the Bills might wait and make Taylor prove it this season, but perhaps they already like too much of what they see and want to get out ahead before a big 2016 drives the price up.

  • Posted: 8/1/2016 9:36am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor continues to negotiate on a contract extension, and there's plenty of optimism that a deal is struck before the season opens.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was one of the surprises out of the gates last season before he got nicked up. He completed 74.3% of his passes in the first three games with seven scores and an average of 238 passing yards per game. He didn't throw multiple touchdowns for nearly two months afterwards. That inconsistency keeps him in the QB2 range in fantasy.

  • Posted: 7/12/2016 1:12pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is entering the final year of his contract but said he is only focused on leading the team to wins in 2016. 'The contract situation will play out. My mindset is to go out there and win games,' Taylor said. 'Do whatever it takes to win games, lead the guys, be the leader on the field, off the field and a commander. But I'm not necessarily focused on the contract. I can't control that. ... I've always been one that focuses on the things I can control, and that's going to be my preparation and how I go out there and play. I'll let everything else take care of itself.'

    Huddle Up: Taylor finished 15th among fantasy QBs with 310 points last season, but considering he missed two contests at an average of 22.16 points per, he could very easily crack the fantasy-starter ranks this coming season with better health fortune.

  • Posted: 6/23/2016 1:05pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor and the Bills are both open to an in-season extension, according to a source. Talks have been ongoing through the offseason, but an extension is not expected before the season starts.

    Huddle Up: Taylor definitely had his moments in his first season as a full-time starter, but it seems like the Bills' just want to see a little more. In the meantime, Taylor checks in at No. 13 in the Huddle's preseason fantasy QB ratings.

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has been sharp in red-zone drills, hitting TE Chris Gragg for a pair of touchdowns.

    Huddle Up: Taylor is entering a pivotal season as he's in the final year of a bargain-basement 3-year, $3.35 million contract. He showed some strong signs a year ago that he can be an above-average QB (fantasy included), and improving upon that will set the table for a big-$$$ deal.
