    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.

  • Posted: 6/3/2016 2:13pm ET

    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.

  • Posted: 5/23/2016 12:08pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor expects more out of the offense because he has a year of experience under his belt, and he wants to open up the passing game.

    Huddle Up: Notoriously conservative Rex Ryan might have something to say about how much Taylor opens up the offense, but he's right about being more effective in Year Two of operating the scheme. And with Sammy Watkins on the roster, the Bills certainly have good reason to do more than Ryan's beloved "ground and pound".

  • Posted: 5/4/2016 10:03am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is a player the team wants to lock up with a long-term deal, and general manager Doug Whaley said Tuesday, May 3, he is 'supremely confident there's a chance' a deal will get done.

    Huddle Up: The Bills haven't exactly gone out of their way to lock up Taylor, but with Cardale Jones as their developmental quarterback they'd love to buy at least a couple years out of their current starter. With Cordy Glenn's deal done there may be more wiggle room under the salary cap as well.

  • Posted: 5/1/2016 2:09pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor will not receive a contract extension in light of the Bills drafting QB Cardale Jones. QB EJ Manuel's option is unlikely to be picked up, too.

    Huddle Up: The Bills are getting a bargain with Taylor entering the second season of a three-year, $3,350,000 contract, but the QB can certainly put himself in a no-doubt position for an extension a year from now if he can build off his strong 2015 campaign.

  • Posted: 4/21/2016 10:19am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is the team's starter in 2016, and general manager Doug Whaley said the team wouldn't consider drafting a quarterback to compete with him in the first round of the NFL Draft.

    Huddle Up: First, Whaley could simply be blowing the draft smoke we're so used to seeing this time of year. Or he could be wording his statement such that Taylor is the guy for this year but the Bills could be in the market for their quarterback of the future.

  • Posted: 4/18/2016 1:35pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he's working on cleaning up his footwork in the pocket this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Bills may be looking to trade Taylor and/or draft his replacement, but meanwhile he's working on improving his game. Bodes well for his fantasy prospects wherever he's quarterbacking next year.

  • Posted: 4/7/2016 10:54pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor could be a trade target for the Denver Broncos, according to reports.

    Huddle Up: Taylor and Broncos coach Gary Kubiak worked together in Baltimore in 2014, and the Broncos were interested in the free agent last offseason before he signed with the Bills. Taylor has one year left on his Buffalo contract, and while the Bills wouldn't appear to be interested in trade at the moment, stranger things have certainly happened.

  • Posted: 1/28/2016 4:33pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor threw for 3,035 passing yards, 20 passing touchdowns and six interceptions in his first season as a starter after spending four years as a little-used backup for the Baltimore Ravens. The first-time Pro Bowler, who added 568 yards and four more touchdowns as a runner, hopes 2015 was the first of many seasons in western New York. 'Of course, I want to be the long-term guy. I love playing for the organization, I love playing for the coaches, I love being around the guys. Like I said, I want to be the long-term guy for them. Ultimately, that's up to them,' Taylor said.

    Huddle Up: Taylor certainly lived up to his fantasy-sleeper billing and then some, and even though we was unable to end the Bills' playoff drought, he was 8-6 as a starter and given the general lack of available QBs, the Bills have to be leaning to sticking with Taylor.

  • Posted: 12/31/2015 5:43pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 31.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been dealing with the shoulder issue for a while now, and should wind up being good to go for one last game.

  • Posted: 12/18/2015 9:12am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was not endorsed as the long-term solution at quarterback by general manager Doug Whaley. 'Let's put it this way,' Whaley said. 'He's shown us enough that we can obviously keep trying with him. But it wonÂ’t preclude us from going out and protecting ourselves [in case] he's not.'

    Huddle Up: Looks like the Bills' front office is in negotiation mode now that Taylor has activated the playing time clause in his contract that makes him a free agent after next season. All Taylor needs to do to remind Buffalo of his value to the organization is miss a game and see how the Bills fare with EJ Manuel at quarterback.

  • Posted: 12/16/2015 10:06am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor has reached a perk in his contract that voided the third year in 2017 due to a playing time threshold.

    Huddle Up: That should expedite the Bills' timetable to sign Taylor to an extension, as he's been more than solid for Buffalo this season.

  • Posted: 12/4/2015 4:09pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) practiced in full Friday, Dec. 4, and is probable for Week 13 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: You'll have Tyrod available if you need him, but it's not the best of matchups as the Texans' defense has stepped things up over the last month and are allowing the 10th fewest fantasy points to opposing QBs this season.

  • Posted: 12/3/2015 5:10pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Dec. 3.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has certainly taken his share of punishing hits over the last couple weeks, but there's been nothing so far to indicate the QB is in any serious danger of missing Sunday's game against the Texans.

  • Posted: 11/27/2015 5:47pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 27, and is listed as probable for the Week 12 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Things looked shaky earlier in the week, but for now it looks as if you can plan on having Taylor available if you need him.

  • Posted: 11/26/2015 6:22pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been limited in both of his practices this week coming off his Monday-night injury, and we should know more after the Bills' practice Friday.

  • Posted: 11/25/2015 10:09pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (shoulder) said he will play in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Taylor will likely be a game-time decision Sunday. If he does play he'll be nothing more than a mid-level QB2 against a strong Chiefs' defense.

  • Posted: 11/24/2015 9:59pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is dealing with a shoulder injury, and head coach Rex Ryan expects Taylor to be able to play in Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Huddle Up: Coaches and players usually err on the optimistic side, so see what Taylor is -- or isn't -- able to do in practice this week.

  • Posted: 11/24/2015 5:35pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor's (chest) availability for Week 12 against the Kansas City Chiefs is unknown, but head coach Rex Ryan hopes his quarterback will be available. Ryan said he has 'no idea' if Taylor will be ready. QB EJ Manuel briefly warmed up on the sidelines in the Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots on Monday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Taylor took a beating Monday night and looked to playing in obvious discomfort late despite finishing the game. It's a short week, however, with travel, and we'll have to see if Taylor is able to practice -- and what he can do -- the next few days.

  • Posted: 11/24/2015 12:30am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (upper body) suffered an apparent upper-body injury in the second half of the Week 11 game against the New England Patriots Monday, Nov. 23. He appeared to suffer a collarbone or right shoulder injury after his entire body weight landed on top of his shoulder.

    Huddle Up: Taylor finished 20 of 36 for 233 yards and failed to throw a TD pass for the first time in eight games this season. He also finished with a season-low one rushing yard on four carries, making for a disappointing night for any Taylor owner needing double-digit points from the QB Monday night.

  • Posted: 11/23/2015 10:08am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor is nearing 50% of the team's snaps this season, which would void the third year of his contract, according to sources. He could reach that mark against the New England Patriots Monday, Nov. 23.

    Huddle Up: Taylor looks to be Buffalo's quarterback of the future, so voiding of the final year would make him a free agent after next season--and lead the Bills to seek an extension this offseason.

  • Posted: 11/4/2015 4:03pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is as healthy as he's been all season and has no added risk of re-injury by returning in Week 9. He was listed as full participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

    Huddle Up: Taylor missed Weeks 6 and 7 and then had the bye week to recover so barring some sort of setback in practice this week, count on him being good to go for Sunday's home game against the Dolphins, who are giving up the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing QBs.

  • Posted: 11/2/2015 1:34pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) was still wearing a brace on his knee during practice Monday, Nov. 2, but head coach Rex Ryan expects Taylor to start in Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins after he missed two games with a sprained left knee.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has scored at least 20 fantasy points in three games this season, including one against Miami earlier this year. Taylor will be on the QB1 radar this week assuming he starts.

  • Posted: 10/26/2015 9:11am ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is expected back in Week 9 after the team's bye, as head coach Rex Ryan said Sunday, Oct. 25, he is 'confident' Taylor will be ready.

    Huddle Up: EJ Manuel hasn't been awful for the most part, but the Bills are a better team with Taylor's dual threat under center.

  • Posted: 10/23/2015 1:31pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee), WR Sammy Watkins (ankle), RB Karlos Williams (concussion) and WR Percy Harvin (hip, knee) have been ruled out for the Week 7 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

    Huddle Up: Another missed game for Watkins is no surprise as he was seen on crutches after injuring his ankle last week just before halftime against the Bengals. However, there was some early-week hope that Taylor would return after a one-game absence, but with the bye week coming up, Buffalo is playing it safe with the starting QB, and EJ Manuel will make his second straight start. Just be sure to make these adjustments in your lineup with the extra-early start for the Bills-Jags contest Sunday.

  • Posted: 10/21/2015 2:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) took the first repetitions at practice Wednesday, Oct. 21, but the repetitions were split evenly with QB EJ Manuel. Taylor's workload is more than he was able to do at this point last week. However, the coaching staff isn't telling him anything in relation to his status for Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: The signs slowly but steadily continue to point in the direction of Taylor's return to the starting lineup this Sunday, but fantasy owners are likely going to have to wait a few days -- possibly even until Sunday morning itself -- to be certain.

  • Posted: 10/20/2015 4:20pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is optimistic he'll start Sunday, Oct. 25, against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Taylor came reasonably close to playing last week and should return this week -- if all goes well in practice -- for a juicy matchup against the Jags' D.

  • Posted: 10/17/2015 3:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) will probably be sidelined for Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals. QB EJ Manuel is expected to start.

    Huddle Up: This has been the expectation all week. E.J. Manuel will get the start against a tough Bengals' defense. He's not a recommended fantasy option.

  • Posted: 10/16/2015 3:56pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) is questionable for Week 6. He's been limited in practice all week.

    Huddle Up: It's shaping up to be a game-time decision, but the general consensus is that Taylor will sit with EJ Manuel getting his first start of the season and face the undefeated Bengals. Stay tuned, though, throughout the weekend.

  • Posted: 10/15/2015 6:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) continues to improve, but head coach Rex Ryan isn't comfortable saying that Taylor will be able to play in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Taylor was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 15 for the second straight day as backup E.J. Manuel took most of the reps.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been limited in the Bills' first two practices of the week, and we should have a better idea of where he stands following practice Friday.

  • Posted: 10/14/2015 4:09pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee), RB LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and WR Sammy Watkins (calf) were all in on the first snap with the first unit at practice Wednesday, Oct. 14.

    Huddle Up: Watkins looks to be the best bet of the trio to play Sunday against the Bengals, telling reporters he "definitely" plans to play after sitting out the last two contests. Taylor, meanwhile, surprised many by practicing after recent reports indicated he might miss up to three weeks with an MCL sprain, but the truth likely lies somewhere in between. McCoy remains the long shot of the bunch. Regardless, let's see what the three Bills are able to do throughout the week, and Friday in particular, before making any definite lineup and roster decisions.

  • Posted: 10/13/2015 4:24pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor (knee) could miss multiple games with a medial collateral ligament sprain he suffered in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans. QB EJ Manuel will start in Week 6 if Taylor is ruled out.

    Huddle Up: Taylor, fantasy's third-ranked QB, is the latest Buffalo skill-position player to land on the injury report, and it sounds like the Bills are planning on him missing time, signing Josh Johnson on Tuesday. See what the practice week brings but start planning to be without Taylor.
