Fantasy Football: 5 Late-Round Quarterbacks to Target
Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo Bills
Among the 37 passers with at least 200 drop backs in 2015, Taylor ranked 10th in Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) per drop back (0.17). That means he added points to the Bills' expected total at a pretty great rate. He also ranked third in Rushing NEP (31.54) among those passers behind Cam Newton (41.20) and Alex Smith (34.72).
Taylor's fantasy value hinges a good deal on the health of Sammy Watkins, who led the group of 54 receivers with at least 75 targets last year in Reception NEP per target.
Watkins' big-play ability combined with Taylor's surprising passing efficiency and production on the ground has him ranked as our QB10 entering the year despite an average draft position (ADP) on Fantasy Football Calculator of QB15 in the 10th round.
