2 Buffalo Bills were named to a 'wouldn't shock' fantasy football list

Two Bills were named to 'wouldn't shock' fantasy list in a positive manner.

Fantasy football drafts are already taking place and two Buffalo Bills you may want to draft on your team include Tyrod Taylor and Sammy Watkins. The chemistry between this duo really developed over the final nine weeks of the season and they could pick up where they left off in 2015.

Michael Fabiano of NFL.com discussed both of these players in his 20 shocking fantasy predictions article and both Bills have positive outlooks from the writer. Here's what Fabiano said about Watkins and Taylor:

It wouldn't shock me if ... Sammy Watkins finishes as a top-10 wideout: Over his final six games of last season, Watkins averaged 5.8 receptions, 113 yards and one touchdown per contest. Barring a setback in his return from foot surgery, the Clemson product should put together a terrific campaign.

It wouldn't shock me if ... Tyrod Taylor is a top-10 fantasy quarterback: Last season, two quarterbacks scored more fantasy points per passes and rushes combined than Taylor. That was Newton and Russell Wilson. Entering a contract year, I can see Taylor making a real statistical climb.

As Fabiano noted, Watkins was on a tear at the end of the 2015 season. Over the final nine games of the season, Watkins had 900 yards receiving and seven touchdowns. He could be in line for a breakout campaign in fantasy football. As for Taylor, he's already valuable in any league that factors in rushing yards for quarterbacks. In his second season as Buffalo's starting QB, he should see more opportunities to pass the ball and he'll certainly continue to run when he sees open space in front of him.
