2016 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)

Last updated on Aug-21-2016 by Shawn Childs


The Bills made the right choice riding Taylor as their starting QB in 2015. He won five of his first seven starts while missing a pair of games in Week 7 and 8 due a left knee injury. Over his first seven games, Tyrod completed 124 of 176 passes (70.4 percent) with 11 passing TDs and four Ints. The league seemed to catch up to the Bills' passing game after week 10. Over his last seven starts, Taylor had a much weaker completion rate (57.8) while continuing to minimize the damage in turnovers (two Ints and one fumble). His only bad game as far as mistakes came in Week two against the Patriots (three Ints). Overall, he had four games with three TDs or more in 14 games. His legs are a clear asset as Tyrod finished with 104 rushes for 568 yards and four rushing TDs. His upside as a passer is really limited due to a low number of passing attempts per game (27.1). In 2015, he only attempted over 40 passes once with no 300-yard passing games. Taylor looks to be a solid game manager that fits well within this system, but he lacks the explosiveness need to be playable on an every week basis in the Fantasy market. I expect his ticket to come in four to six times in 2016 so he'll work well as a QB2 if you like to play matchups. I do believe he has injury risk based on three issues in 2015 – ankle, knee, and shoulder.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
16.04 Matt De Lima - More than happy to snag the high floor of Tyrod Taylor. His rushing production will buoy him within the top 20 at QB.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
14.04 Gridiron Experts - Jody Smith - My favorite value at the QB position this season, Taylor led all quarterbacks in rushing yards-per-start, and did a tremendous job avoiding turnovers. His rushing production makes him a fringe starter and nice value as part of a rotation.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
11.01 Rotocurve - Michael Rathburn - Finished QB6 last year, but getting no love this year. This team runs a lot, and Tyrod gets his carries which provide a great floor.
