From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 11): Nathan Peterman left Week 14 with a concussion and Tyrod Taylor might not be ready for Week 15 because of his knee. Webb is a good runner and could start against the weak Miami defense this week.

Week 15: vs Miami Dolphins

All QB vs MIA

FBG says: Good matchup. It's been a rocky ride, but Tyrod Taylor is likely the Bills' unquestioned starter again. Rookie Nathan Peterman has been abjectly terrible, posting a league-worst 1.24 adjusted net yards per attempt (factoring in sacks, touchdowns, and interceptions). Third-stringer and ideal Wildcat specialist Joe Webb could be even worse. So, assuming he's recovered adequately from his knee injury, Taylor will be back under center in Week 15. That's nice, and it's helpful to us as fantasy owners, but it may not mean too much for start/sit purposes. Taylor is an exceptionally one-dimensional fantasy producer; he'll generally either run for 60+ yards and pay off for owners or fail to bring value. He's only reached 225 passing yards twice thus far in 2017. It certainly doesn't help that he throws to virtually no starting-caliber talent. Kelvin Benjamin remains hurt - he's caught just seven passes over three appearances as a Bill, anyway - while Zay Jones has suffered through an atrocious rookie season (68 targets but just 291 yards), and Deonte Thompson isn't anyone's idea of a WR1. Frankly, the only worthwhile pieces of the Bills passing game are running back LeSean McCoy and tight end Charles Clay, and both have capped upsides as receivers in this offense. Is it possible to wash away a season's worth of poor pass defense with just one masterpiece against Tom Brady? Probably not, but it's worth noting just how great of a game this unit played last week. Second-year cornerback Xavien Howard, one of the league's least effective cover man for most of the year, was thoroughly dominant against the Patriots, refusing to allow a catch and picking off two passes. And there's even further reason for optimism, as the Dolphins have now slotted T.J. McDonald into the lineup to construct a top-tier safety tandem. McDonald and Reshad Jones should discourage downfield throws to a degree, and while Howard's aggressive playing style won't always win out, it's a nice weapon to have. There's still tons of reason for concern here, especially with the team's pass rush still not showing up. But there are steps being taken in the right direction, and the Dolphins may not be an eminently targetable matchup anymore.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 14 vs IND (2 / 6 / 35 / 0 / 1 pass, 5 / 27 / 0 rush)

Joe Webb came in the game in relief of Nathan Peterman when Peterman left in the concussion protocol. Before running a gadget play in the wild cat last, Webb had not thrown a pass since 2011. Webb was intercepted once on a throw behind Charles Clay, where Webb struggled with his footwork in the snow. The throw nearly cost Buffalo the game but Indianapolis missed a late field goal to force overtime. Webb did make a big throw in the deep perimeter to Deonte Thompson in overtime that set up LeSean McCoy's touchdown. Webb is the emergency third string quarterback with a special teams role, and will resume a backup role after Taylor or Peterman return healthy.
