Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Throws two touchdowns against 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taylor completed 17 of 26 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's win over San Francisco. He added 68 yards on eight carries, but lost a fumble during the contest.

LeSean McCoy set them up and Taylor knocked them down. After giving the 49ers a steady diet of McCoy early on, Taylor threw 97 of his yards and both his touchdowns in the second half - including a 30-yard deep flag to newly acquired target Justin Hunter - the pair's second touchdown connection in as many games. Taylor isn't featured enough in Anthony Lynn's run-focused offense to be anything more than a spot starter, as he's topped 200 yards passing just once and 200 total yards twice in Lynn's four games as offensive coordinator. However, the mobile quarterback has also done well to protect the ball, with six total touchdowns and one turnover (Sunday's fumble) during the span.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Leads Bills to third straight win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taylor had a pedestrian day during Sunday's win in Los Angeles, passing for just 124 yards on 12-of-23 passing, though he did toss two TD passes while adding 28 yards on the ground.

Taylor has been fully healthy for all but a handful of snaps this season, yet somehow he's thrown for less than 125 yards in three of the team's five games. Even more surprisingly, the Bills have won two of those three games and are 8-1 over the last two seasons whenever Taylor throws for under 200 yards. That should tell you all you need to know about how much the Bills prefer to run the ball, though at least Taylor holds up in that aspect, as he's rushed for 168 yards and a score so far. His six TD passes are OK, while Taylor doesn't hurt you much in leagues that track interceptions, as he has just two so far after putting up a 20:6 TD:INT ratio last season.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Throws for touchdown in win over New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor completed 27 of 39 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Patriots. He added 28 yards on the ground through five carries.

Throwing for his most attempts since Week 4 of last season, Taylor was cool and efficient in the Bills' second consecutive win, connecting with eight different targets. Taylor's ability to spread the love will come in handy with Sammy Watkins out, but something to keep an eye on is a lack of the chunk plays that made Taylor a multi-dimensional threat in 2015. Taylor's yards per attempt is down by more than a yard this year and he has three games of less than seven yards per attempt this season after just five such games in all of 2015. The Bills had 51 passing plays of more than 20 yards in 2015 - 18 caught by Watkins - but are on pace for just 32 in 2016.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Lethal with his legs in Week 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Taylor completed 14 of 25 passes for 119 yards with no touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 33-18 victory over the Cardinals. He also gained 76 yards and a touchdown on nine carries and fumbled twice, recovering one.

The six-year pro had his second lackluster showing through the air in the season's first three weeks, but more than made up for it on the ground. Taylor helped insure new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn's offense made a grand debut, with a nifty 20-yard touchdown run, a game-long scamper of 49 yards, and a season high in rushing yards overall. Missing top target Sammy Watkins, Taylor was conservative through the air, with Robert Woods (six receptions, 51 yards) serving as the focal point of the air attack. Otherwise, the offense leaned heavily on LeSean McCoy and also saw the defense tally a touchdown on a 53-yard fumble return. Taylor will face a tough task when he faces the Patriots in New England in Week 4.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: New OC, new looks?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor has a new offensive coordinator in Anthony Lynn after the Bills fired Greg Roman on Friday. One of Lynn's expectations could be to open up the passing game a bit more. Said coach Rex Ryan, "I want to be multiple. I want to be able to throw the football ... I do want to be able to run the football on a consistent basis. I want to be multiple in the running game, but I also want to be able to use the entire arsenal. The quick game, the intermediate game and the deep passing game."

It's hard to teach an old dog like Ryan new tricks, but the Bills under Roman were one of the heaviest run-based offenses in the league. Facing an 0-2 start with little to lose and with part of Roman's firing being based on an inability to get Sammy Watkins, Robert Woods, and Charles Clay the ball more often, we could see the Bills start to open it up a bit more. Coupled with Taylor's excellent running ability, that could lead to good things. Still, this team is off to a stinky start and hasn't been able to move the ball other than some big plays, so don't be expecting the Dan Fouts Chargers all of a sudden. Also keep in mind Ryan is still running the show and Lynn is a former running back and running backs coach, so that run-centered approach probably isn't going away, either.
