Summary

Tyrod Taylor seems to be the starter here, but the team wouldn't give him an extension and there were reports they actively shopped him at some points. With the dust now clearing though, it appears as if Taylor will remain the starter since EJ Manuel is too inconsistent and Cardale Jones is very raw. The good news for Taylor is he fits perfectly in Greg Roman's offense, has a good run game and Sammy Watkins. The bad news is the defense was atrocious last year and he played from behind a lot, his offensive line was a little shaky and after Sammy Watkins there is very little talent. We think Taylor could improve upon his work last season, but the ceiling appears limited due to his support and the run-first style of offense. (May 20)

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants to open up offense (Sun May 22, 08:56 PM) - 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.

Our View: Taylor proved a lot as a passer during his first year as a starter in the NFL. He has a rocket arm, but Taylor can throw deep with timing, touch and accuracy. The nature of a Rex Ryan offense is to run, run, run...but we'd like to see Taylor get a chance to do more through the air.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor wants healthy Sammy Watkins (Sat May 21, 11:29 PM) - Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor said he is not worried about the injury to WR Sammy Watkins (foot) hurting their chemistry with each other. 'We've been talking together and getting on the same page,' Taylor said. 'We want on the field work obviously, but we'll get that when the time comes. The main thing is that he gets healthy so he can play at the level that we know hes capable of playing at.'

Our View: Watkins is tremendously talented, but he's already battled through various injuries in two years as a pro and now he's got to come back from foot surgery. Perhaps his career will turn out like former Rams WR Isaac Bruce who had to fight injuries for a bit before playing like a star in the NFL. The Bills offense will flow through the rushing attack, but when Taylor goes to the air he'll be looking for Watkins early and often. Watkins has a current ADP of WR16 (3.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.
