With the return of a healthy Sammy Watkins to fuel the deep passing and the potential for Taylor to add significant rushing yards and a score in any given week, Taylor works as a QB2 to give you a top quarterback scoring ceiling or one-half of a QBBC that should allow to you hang with teams that spent more resources at the position - all at the cost of a pick in the second half of drafts.

Summary

Taylor enters his third year as a starter, but his situation is not firm. The Bills hesitated when it came to reworking his contract and didn't make a real long-term commitment to him when they did come to terms. He's going to have to fight for work with Cardale Jones, TJ Yates and rookie Nathan Peterman. If he can't separate from them, it'll be a bad look. If he does win the job, two things make that job tougher. One, his constantly injured and sub-average receiving corps and second, the run-first offense. The first the team is hoping will be improved by the addition of rookie Zay Jones, but you can tell the franchise has doubts about Sammy Watkins because they declined to take his fifth year option. The Bills have said they will still lean on the run and while they threw more than they ran - 474 attempts compared to 382 -but they are still below par for the rest of the NFL. That makes his lower touchdown total - 17 (23 if you count his rushing touchdowns) - more of an issue. Those factors combined makes Taylor unreliable most weeks. (May 22)
