Finished as the QB7 on a point per game basis in 2016, and was after finishing as the QB8 in 2015. He continues to be one of the most under-appreciated players in all of fantasy. The Bills went out and spent a high-2nd-round pick in order to snag wide receiver Zay Jones, signed free agent Anquan Boldin, and traded for Jordan Matthews. This is all negated, of course, by the fact that they traded away his true No. 1 wide receiver in Sammy Watkins. Taylor has only averaged one fewer fantasy point per game without Watkins playing, though it's not the largest of sample sizes. Losing Watkins really hurts.

Tyrod Taylor to start Week 1?

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott told the press he "envisions" Tyrod Taylor as the team's Week 1 starter. "I have all the confidence in the world in Tyrod," McDermott said Friday.

Fantasy Impact

After a deflating performance in the Bills' second preseason game Thursday night against the Eagles in which he threw a pair of interceptions, Taylor remains the favorite to open the 2017 season as Buffalo's starting quarterback. Unless Taylor continues to make mistakes in live-action, his job will likely be safe. He'll remain in the middling QB2 conversation entering the upcoming season.
