Tyrod Taylor ranked third in Michael Fabiano's fantasy QB efficiency rankings.

Tyrod Taylor's fantasy points efficiency was among the best in the NFL in 2015.

Tyrod Taylor had quite the season with the Buffalo Bills. In 14 games, Taylor completed 63.7 percent of his passes for 3,035 yards, 20 touchdowns, and just six interceptions. He also rushed for another 568 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.

These totals helped Taylor finish 16th among all quarterbacks last season in fantasy football, but it turns out that the Bills QB was one of the most efficient QBs in fantasy football last year. Michael Fabiano of NFL.com determined how efficient every NFL QB was in 2015 by finding out how many fantasy points per touch (FPPT) each quarterback received. Taylor finished third in his rankings. Here's what Fabiano said about the Bills signal caller.

3. Tyrod Taylor, Bills (0.56 FPPT): Your fantasy radars should be going off with this stat. Taylor, who finished 16th in fantasy points among quarterbacks, did damage when he touched the ball. He also was a massive asset as a runner, averaging 0.77 fantasy points per rush last season. If he can avoid injuries, Taylor could turn into quite a nice draft bargain in 2016.

Taylor finished 0.01 FPPT behind Seahawks QB Russell Wilson for second place. Cam Newton finished first in Fabiano's efficiency rankings with 0.62 FPPT.

Based on Fabiano's research, Taylor could be a steal in your fantasy football draft in 2016.
