According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the Bills plan to go with Taylor as their starting quarterback.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While the Bills have not yet publicly confirmed their Week 1 QB plans, it appears as though they will roll with Taylor, who had been competing with Matt Cassel and EJ Manuel for the assignment. From a fantasy perspective, Taylor is a speculative option, but his mobility adds a degree of intrigue/upside on that front.
Bills head coach Rex Ryan said he will make a decision on his starting quarterback Sunday but will not announce it publicly, NFL.com's Albert Breer reports. Taylor is currently competing with Matt Cassel and EJ Manuel.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Taylor and Manuel both impressed in Saturday's preseason win over the Steelers, and while the latter may have put his name back into the conversation, Taylor is likely still the favorite. Cassel also can't be ruled out, but he was easily outplayed by Taylor this preseason. Bills head coach Rex Ryan said that No. 4 QB Matt Simms will likely play all four quarters of the final exhibition game, according to ESPN's Mike Rodak.
Taylor completed 12 of 13 passes for 122 yards, adding one carry for a 20-yard touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Taylor will compete with sixth-round rookie Keith Wenning for the right to serve as the Ravens' No. 2 quarterback for a fourth consecutive year. Joe Flacco has yet to miss a start through six NFL seasons.

2013

Taylor will compete against Caleb Hanie for the No. 2 quarterback job behind Joe Flacco. Taylor held down the role each of the last two seasons, making him a heavy favorite to beat out Hanie. Should something happen to the notably durable Flacco, Taylor's athleticism could lead to fantasy relevance.

2011

Taylor seems to be penciled as the backup behind Joe Flacco, which is surprising considering how raw Taylor is as a passer. He is a terrific athlete, however, with tons of upside should he develop properly.
