Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 3/14/17 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.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 3/9/17 8:19am ET
Buffalo Bills impending free-agent WR Robert Woods is expected to sign a five-year, $39 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams Thursday, March 9. The deal includes $15 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Woods will take over for Kenny Britt as a possession receiver after posting a 51-613-1 line last year. He has been a matchup play in fantasy, and he could be a sneaky back-end receiver in fantasy if he's used properly.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 3/8/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 3/5/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 3/3/17 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.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 3/1/17 10:04am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) is on schedule in his recovery from offseason foot surgery, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Watkins underwent a second operation on his foot after the season and probably will not do much until training camp begins. He will be the Bills' No. 1 receiver in 2017 and probably should be considered a No. 3 option for fantasy owners because of his injury history.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/26/17 4:51pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy sent out a tweet Sunday, Feb. 26, which said, 'Buffalo was so special.' However, a source with knowledge of the situation said that the tweet referred to an autograph signing and not McCoy's future with the team.
Huddle Up: McCoy is coming off an excellent all-around season, and he is a RB1 candidate heading into 2017.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 2/25/17 7:22am ET
Buffalo Bills impending free-agent WR Robert Woods remains open to re-signing with the Bills, although he wants the club's quarterback situation to be resolved before he makes a final decision.
Huddle Up: If Tyrod Taylor returns as Buffalo's starting quarterback next season, the chances of Woods remaining with the team are better. Regardless of where he lands, Woods is expected to be used as a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver and should be viewed as a WR4 in most fantasy formats.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 2/24/17 8:29pm ET
Buffalo Bills impending free-agent WR Robert Woods said he would have no problem continuing to serve as the No. 2 option behind WR Sammy Watkins in Buffalo's passing attack.
Huddle Up: Woods could sign elsewhere in the offseason, but he is likely to be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver wherever he ends up. Heading into 2017, he projects as a WR4 for fantasy purposes.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/22/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/21/17 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.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/17/17 6:32am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy could be a surprise cut this offseason, in the opinion of NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal. McCoy isn't a perfect fit in offensive coordinator Rick Dennison's one-cut running system. If McCoy is designated as a post-June 1 cut, the team recoups $6.25 million in cap room.
Huddle Up: McCoy quietly had a big year. His 5.4 yards per rush was the best of his career. He had 1,267 rushing yards, 14 total TDs, 50 grabs and 356 receiving yards. He's 29 this year, and injuries are always a concern. However, he re-established his RB1 value.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/14/17 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.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 2/4/17 10:06am ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy said he believes he is the best running back in the NFL if he is healthy.
Huddle Up: McCoy ranked sixth in the NFL with his 1,267 rushing yards and fourth in rushing touchdowns even though he missed one game because of an injury. He also caught 50 passes for 356 yards and one touchdown. He should continue to be one of the top running backs in the league and should be a No. 1 running back for all owners.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 2/3/17 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.
Charles Clay - TEPosted 1/26/17 10:14am ET
Buffalo Bills TE Charles Clay caught all four of his touchdowns at home this season. He also caught those four touchdowns during the second half of the season.
Huddle Up: Clay was a solid contributor in the passing game over the last part of the season and will continue to be the starting tight end for the Bills. Clay could be a low-end No. 1 or a fine No. 2 tight end for owners next season.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/25/17 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.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 1/23/17 5:14pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy rushed for 11 of his 13 touchdowns at home this season.
Huddle Up: McCoy was one of the best running back in the NFL this season, finishing in the top 10 in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. McCoy should continue to be a focal point on offense under head coach Sean McDermott and likely will be one of the first running back taken in fantasy drafts.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/20/17 3:01pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot) underwent a second surgery on his injured foot last week. Watkins is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Watkins likely will be sidelined for all of the offseason workouts but should take part in training camp as long as there are no setbacks. He will enter next season as the No. 1 receiver for the Bills and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/20/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/17/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/13/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/6/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/5/17 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.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/5/17 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.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/3/17 7:34pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot, hip) will have foot surgery later this week, but it is not expected to hamper his 2017 season.
Huddle Up: Watkins should be okay for summer workouts, if not earlier, and assuming the quarterback situation is stable in Buffalo then Watkins could be a decent WR2 performer.
Robert Woods - WRPosted 1/3/17 7:42pm ET
Buffalo Bills WR Robert Woods told media in Buffalo he has plans to test the free-agent market this spring.
Huddle Up: Woods doesn't turn 25 until April, which could be a plus for him. There were games where Sammy Watkins did not play and Woods did well, and Woods had a 67 percent success rate catching passes this season. If Woods finds a decent situation, he could be a strong WR2 candidate.
Sammy Watkins - WRPosted 1/2/17 7:43am ET
Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins (foot, hip) said he's leaning against having another surgery on his troublesome left foot. Watkins also left the Week 17 game due to a hip injury, but he said that will be fine.
Huddle Up: Watkins has been dogged by injuries in his first three seasons. If he avoids surgery, this will be his first full offseason without one. Watkins' fantasy stock will depend a lot on who the quarterback is next season, but he's at least a low-end WR2 possibility.
Tyrod Taylor - QBPosted 1/2/17 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.
LeSean McCoy - RBPosted 1/2/17 3:49pm ET
Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain during the team's Week 17 game, according to interim head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: McCoy should be fine and probably will be able to participate in offseason workouts. McCoy posted seven 100-yard games this season and finished with 13 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 50 passes for 356 yards and one touchdown. McCoy will be selected in the first round of all drafts next season.
