Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Odds are that Tyrod Taylor won’t be the Bills starting quarterback in 2018. At least according to the recent twitter poll I ran in which 84% voted no (75 responses). I don’t think the Bills have a better option but given the way they have (mis)handled and (mis)managed Tyrod’s career so far, that’s neither here nor there.
They can save around $9.4 million in cap space by cutting him in 2018 according to www.spotrac.com. For a team that benched him while he was having a career year in efficiency (according to PACR from fantasyadhd.com) that will be tempting. The Bills have not shown a willingness to support Tyrod. Having said that, his career efficiency stats are troubling overall even if his fantasy counting numbers are solid.
His 2017 campaign was enough to solidify his status as a quarterback who can move an offense. Even without support, and he should get a shot at a starting somewhere. I think he can continue to be a viable backup and spot start in good matchups for fantasy as well. His ADP is holding steady in the 18th round according to DLF’s January data.
