Bills HC Sean McDermott announced Wednesday that QB Nathan Peterman will start this weekend's game against the Chargers. It's a surprising and short-sighted decision (in our opinion). QB Tyrod Taylor, despite a less-than-stellar pass-catching corps, ranks 14th in completion rate, has tossed just 3 INTs all season and sits 16th in QB Rating. Peterman went 7-of-10 for 79 yards and a score in mop-up duty against the Saints last week. The 5th-round rookie completed just 54.4% of his passes and averaged 5.7 yards per attempt this preseason. He's not a Week 11 fantasy option and is a downgrade to Buffalo's offense.
The Bills have released QB Nathan Peterman. The 2017 5th-rounder finishes his Buffalo career with a 52.3% completion rate, 3 TDs and 12 INTs in 8 appearances. His 9.2% INT rate is the 8th worst among 444 QBs who have attempted 100+ passes since the 1970 merger. For his sake, we hope Peterman never plays another down in the NFL.
The Bills are expected to be forced to turn back to QB Nathan Peterman for Sunday's game against the Bears. QB Josh Allen has been ruled out with his elbow injury, while QB Derek Anderson is expected to miss Week 9 after sustaining a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Patriots. Peterman has thrown 4 INTs on just 32 attempts this season. He turns the Bears defense from a great fantasy play to an elite one.
Down 40-0 against the Ravens in the 3rd quarter, Buffalo has benched QB Nathan Peterman and inserted rookie Josh Allen. Peterman went 5 of 18 for just 24 yards and 2 INTs before leaving. We'll see what these means beyond Week 1. The Bills host the Chargers in Week 2.
The Bills have named QB Nathan Peterman the starter for Sunday's opener against the Ravens. That means we'll have to wait to see 1st-round pick Josh Allen in regular-season action. Peterman fared well in the preseason, completing 33 of 41 passes (80.5%) for 431 yards (10.5 yards per attempt) and 3 TDs vs. just 1 INT. Allen's obviously the long-term answer after Buffalo moved up to draft him, but delaying his debut is likely good for his development. If the Bills' decision here significantly impacts your fantasy football team, you just might be in for a rough year.
