    • Both and

      Both and have confirmed that the Bills plan to start Taylor in Week 1 against the Colts.

      Analysis: Though the Bills have yet to publicly confirm the decision, possibly in the name of gamesmanship, multiple credible sources now relay that Taylor has won the team's starting job over EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel. Meanwhile, it's unclear who is in line to serve as Taylor's top backup in Week 1, but either way, the 26-year-old Virginia Tech product now merits fantasy consideration thanks to his mobility, with his overall upside on that front now resting in his ability to develop and maintain chemistry with the Bills' solid collection of pass-catching weapons.

      Matthews (elbow) made his first appearance in the preseason Saturday, totaling one tackle in limited action against the Eagles.

      Analysis: While Matthews' position within the Packers defense will remain murky leading up to the regular season, it's clear he will be counted on to buoy what appears to be a weak linebacking core. The potential move to inside linebacker might result in more tackles for Matthews, but it could jeopardize his sack totals, although that was not an issue late last year. However, with seemingly limited pass-rushing options available on defense, the 29-year-old will still be asked to put pressure on the quarterback as often as possible.

      Burnett made five tackles Saturday in a preseason loss to the Eagles.

      Analysis: The Packers and Burnett were shredded by the Eagles on Saturday, which could serve as either a sign of things to come or a wake-up call. Burnett, the clear starter at strong safety, will surely be counted on in the run game --- something he did quite effectively in 2014, when he totaled 130 tackles (94 solo). His tackle production will make him one of the top IDP options among defensive backs this season.

      Clinton-Dix made six tackles (five solo) in a preseason game against the Eagles on Saturday.

      Analysis: The Packers' first-string defense, including Clinton-Dix played the majority of the first half in Saturday's game, although you couldn't guess that by their performance. They were lit up in the first half by an explosive Eagles offense to the tune of 325 yards, with 271 yards coming through the air. While Clinton-Dix's tackle numbers in the preseason have been impressive (12 tackles in last two games), he hasn't been able to create turnovers in the secondary, something the Packers have lacked since the departure of Charles Woodson. He remains a player on the rise in IDP formats however.

      Quarless made just one catch for six yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Eagles.

      Analysis: Quarless has put up meager preseason numbers to date -- four catches for 44 yards -- and has fallen behind Richard Rodgers in the race for the starting tight end gig. Quarless will still find himself on the field in plenty of two-tight end sets, but his chances of duplicating his 2014 numbers (29 catches, 323 yards, 3 TDs) seem slim with Rodgers likely becoming more involved in the offense.
