It’s the most important week of the preseason (if there really is such a thing) as teams typically treat this weekend as a dress rehearsal of sorts. For dynasty enthusiasts, this promises us our most extended look at our shiny new rookies and veterans who have changed places in the off-season. As always, we’ll be updating the action each day and giving you our takeaways to keep you as informed as humanly possible. We continue our coverage with a Saturday full of action.
Pittsburgh at Buffalo
All eyes were on Buffalo’s quarterbacks as we try to determine just who will be under center come week one. The prevailing thought going into this week’s game was Tyrod Taylor looked to be in the lead for this honor. If there was any doubt prior to today’s tilt, it was short lived as Taylor completed 12-of-13 passes for 122 yards. EJ Manuel refused to go quietly, putting together a solid effort himself as he finished going 7-for-8 passing with two touchdowns as he started against the Steelers’ first team defense. In all likelihood, it is “too little, too late” as Taylor showed undeniable dynamic abilities both in and out of the pocket once again.
