Tyrod Taylor has just 134 yards passing in playoff

Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of 37 passes for 134 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's wild-card loss at Jacksonville. He ran seven times for 27 yards, and left the game on the Bills' final drive with a head injury.

Fantasy Impact

Taylor had no answers for Jacksonville's elite defense, leading the Bills' offense to three points. As expected, the Jaguars' corners shut down any hope of a downfield passing game (the Bills' wide receivers totaled five catches for 52 yards), but Jacksonville also was prepared for Taylor on the ground, containing the edge well against any scrambling and forcing him to be a quarterback. Taylor did nothing to dissuade the Bills from looking to upgrade in the offseason, so this may have been his last game for Buffalo. In three years as the Bills' starter, he's never grown beyond a fantasy backup, and there's no guarantee he'll be starting for anyone next year.

Tyrod Taylor throws one TD pass in finale

Tyrod Taylor completed 19 of 27 passes for 204 yards and one touchdown Sunday at Miami. He also ran six times for 35 yards.

Fantasy Impact

The touchdown pass was one of the easiest of his career, as no one was within a mile of tight end Nick O'Leary in the end zone. It was still one of Taylor's better games, and typically for him, it still only translates to fantasy mediocrity. He's not a recommended play in playoff DFS, as he travels to one of the best pass defenses in the league in Jacksonville.

Tyrod Taylor's lone TD pass overturned

Tyrod Taylor completed 21 of 38 passes for 281 yards Sunday at New England. He ran three times for 16 yards, and had no interceptions or touchdown passes (that counted).

Fantasy Impact

Taylor was robbed when his TD fade to Kelvin Benjamin was overturned in a very controversial ruling just before halftime. His yardage was within four yards of a season high, but typically, he couldn't finish drives. His future with Buffalo is up in the air, and so therefore is his future as an NFL starter. If you're playing in Week 17, Taylor remains a high-end fantasy QB2 at Miami.

Tyrod Taylor throws for TD, runs for another

Tyrod Taylor completed 17 of 29 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown Sunday in a victory over Miami. He also ran six times for 42 yards and another TD.

Fantasy Impact

This was one of Taylor's best days, as broke a four-game skid of failing to eclipse 200 yards passing. He showed no ill effects at all from the knee injury that kept him out last week. Next week, he travels to New England, which has the potential for a shootout, although he passed for just 65 yards on 18 attempts against the Patriots two weeks ago. That makes him risky, but he has the ceiling to be a sneaky streamer and DFS option.

Tyrod Taylor to start Week 15

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting the Buffalo Bills will start Tyrod Taylor in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Taylor will start in Sunday’s matchup against the Dolphins after an inactive designation sidelined the signal caller for last week’s win over the Colts with a knee injury. While his presence will give Zay Jones and Charles Clay’s fantasy values a boost, they are nothing more than shot in the dark deep sleeper options at the Flex for Week 15. Facing an inconsistent but talented Dolphins defense, it is difficult to trust any Bills player not named LeSean McCoy.
