FF Today's Take:Matt Cassel has proven his mediocre abilities, EJ Manuel has failed to impress so head coach Rex Ryan turns to the dual-threat abilities of the unproven Taylor. He's a QB2 for fantasy purposes and will have above-average talent surrounding him once LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Percy Harvin (hip) recover from their injuries.
Tyrod Taylor making a run at Bills' QB1 job-- Fri Aug 21 4:40 pm --
Completed 7 of 10 passes for 65 yards and 41 rushing yards Thursday
Tyrod Taylor did his best to win the Buffalo Bills' starting job on Thursday. Now it's up to Rex Ryan to make a decision, even if he doesn't appear to be in a hurry. Taylor played the entire first half of Buffalo's 11-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns, completing seven of 10 passes for 65 yards. He also led the team in rushing with 41 yards on four carries. That's the good news. The bad news is that the Bills only scored three points in Taylor's three first-half drives. Taylor took a bad sack to end a 16-play drive to start the game, which led to a missed field goal. Taylor later led a field-goal drive. Despite the limited scoring, Taylor passed the eye test. He delivered some nice throws on third down, showing calm in the pocket. He also created plays out of nothing with his legs. That is going to impress Ryan, who has a fondness for mobile quarterbacks.(NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:Taylor, or whoever ends up winning the Bills' QB battle, shouldn't be on your fantasy radar unless you're in a two quarterback league, and even then only as a bye week filler.
