Yates is expected to head to training camp as the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor and ahead of Nathan Peterman and Cardale Jones, The Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reportedly, only Taylor has looked ready to run Rick Dennison's offense entering the season. That's been the case all along, but the Bills are hoping someone will step up and give the coaching staff some comfort if Taylor should suffer an injury. So far that's not really happening, but Yates has more experience as a pro and also has experience with Dennison, putting him in the second spot in the pecking order for now, though the situation could remain fluid as the youngsters behind him get more chances.

Yates signed with the Bills on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Yates' deal in Buffalo comes after he visited with the team on Friday, setting the stage for him to come on board. Although Yates didn't appear in a game last season, he has featured on 18 occasions since entering the league in 2011. At 29 years old, he'll provide the Bills with a veteran presence behind starter Tyrod Taylor and rising second-year pro Cardale Jones.

Yates made a free-agent visit to the Bills on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Yates signed with the Dolphins in December after Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury, but ultimately didn't make an appearance for Miami. Nonetheless, the 29-year-old boasts seven starts from his 18 career games played, which makes him a candidate to fill a backup role elsewhere. At the moment, second-year pro Cardale Jones is pegged as Buffalo's second-stringer behind Tyrod Taylor.

Yates is slated to start Sunday's game against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

He will draw the assignment with Brian Hoyer (concussion) not available to play Sunday, which makes Yates a fantasy lineup option in deeper fantasy formats this week. In three appearances this season, including one start (11/22 against the Jets) that he won, Yates has completed 22 of 47 passes for 302 yards with three TDs and no picks.

Yates could start in Week 15 against the Colts, after teammate Brian Hoyer suffered another concussion Sunday night, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Yates is expected to be prepared as the Texans' starting quarterback this week, since Hoyer's latest concussion marked his second in the past month. So far, in Yates' three appearances in Hoyer's absence, he's completed 22-of-47 attempts for 302 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. While he certainly lacks great upside, Yates is at least a serviceable backup option, and Sunday's game comes against a Colts defense that surrendered over 50 points this past weekend.
