Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton said he is going to retire.
Insight: We have heard that before. He played 12 games this season, throwing for 3,018 yards and 18 touchdowns against 10 interceptions. That leaves E.J. Manuel and Jeff Tuel at quarterback.
12/28/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton had a decent game, going 16-for-23 with 176 yards and a touchdown on Sunday.
Insight: Orton was a good game-manager for the Bills this season as they finished second in the AFC East with a 9-7 record, but look for Buffalo to upgrade the position next season. Orton didn't win many fantasy leagues this season.
12/22/2014 9:48:00 AM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton benefitted from two fourth quarter drives, one in garbage time, to post solid fantasy numbers.
Insight: Orton was 32-of-49 with 329 yards three touchdowns and two interceptions. Losing to Oakland was certainly unexpected, but Orton's passing totals were about what fantasy owners thought he could do against an Oakland defense that has yielded 405 points.
12/14/2014 5:44:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton did just enough for Buffalo to beat Green Bay, 21-13, in Week 15.
Insight: Orton was 14-of-27 with 158 yards and an interception. Buffalo won mostly behind great defense and a punt return for a touchdown.
12/8/2014 11:06:00 AM
Description: In a game against Peyton manning who would have thought that Bills quarterback Kyle Orton would be the only quarterback to throw for 300 yards?
Insight: Orton was 38-of-57 for 355 yards, one touchdowns and two interceptions in a 24-17 loss. Orton has been better than expected when he took over as the starter.
11/30/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton threw for 190 yards and a touchdown versus the Browns on Sunday.
Insight: It was very strange to see Buffalo try to throw the ball so much in the first half against the 29th ranked run defense of Cleveland. Orton did throw two picks, but Buffalo got the running game going eventually, and Orton did just enough.
11/24/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: It was Bills quarterback Kyle Orton played very well during Monday's win against the Jets.
Insight: He threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns. Orton spreaded the ball around nicely, as eight different players had a reception.
11/14/2014 9:28:00 AM
Description: It was Bills quarterback Kyle Orton's worst production of the season after five solid games of work.
Insight: Orton was just 22-of-39 for 193 yards and couldn't get the Bills into the end zone. The Dolphins defense is playing as well as anyine, so we think Orton will return to low-end status next game.
11/9/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton threw for 259 yards and a touchdown, during Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
Insight: He now has 10 touchdowns and three interceptions on the year, and has been a solid fantasy option, since taking over for E.J. Manuel.
10/26/2014 5:21:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton played his best game as a member of Buffalo, during Sunday's win against the Jets.
Insight: He was 10-of-17 for 238 yards and an impressive four touchdowns. Orton has vaulted himself to a borderline QB1, moving forward.
10/19/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton led Buffalo back to defeat the Vikings, 17-16, on Sunday.
Insight: Orton was 31-for-43 with 283 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. He and Sammy Watkins seem to have really developed some nice chemistry.
10/12/2014 6:25:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton had a solid game against the Patriots.
Insight: He has now played well in both games he has started in 2014. Orton threw for 299 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception on Sunday. Consider him a QB2.
9/29/2014 3:53:00 PM
Description: Bills quarterback Kyle Orton has been named the starter over E.J. Manuel for Week 5 against Atlanta.
Insight: Orton is a solid backup, but not a fantasy starter anymore. In four games this season Manuel never threw for more than 238 yards and the change could perk up fantasy values across the board as the offense won't be limited with a veteran under center.
8/30/2014 1:48:00 PM
Description: Quarterback Kyle Orton was signed by the Buffalo Bills
Insight: Orton is a solid backup, but not a starter anymore. Hoperfully this isn't a sign the team is concerned about E.J. Manuel's ability to run the offense.
5/22/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Cowboys QB Kyle Orton has told the team he plans to retire. SOURCE: Ian Rapoport, NFL.com
Insight: Orton completed 30-of-46 passes for 358 yards and two touchdowns last year in his only start of the season. The 31-year-old has played for four different teams during his eight seasons in the league.
12/26/2012 12:30:00 PM
Description: Dallas QB Kyle Orton continues to look like the starter for the Cowboys in Week 17 against Philadelphia.
Insight: Orton took all the first-team reps and Romo has missed practice, team meetings and the game-plan session, according to Ed Werder. Dallas has not made an official announcement and figures to try and keep the decision under wraps, but fantasy owners should expect Orton will be out there on game day.
3/14/2012 2:14:00 PM
Description: Reports out of Dallas have the Cowboys signing QB Kyle Orton to a three-year deal.
Insight: Orton probably could have found a gig where he'd have a better shot at starting, but apparently like what he saw in his first visit since free agency began. As long as Tony Romo is healthy, Orton isn't likely to have much fantasy value except as handcuff insurance.
11/23/2011 6:04:00 PM
Description: The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free-agent QB Kyle Orton.
Insight: It was pretty obvious the Chiefs weren't going to make the playoffs with Tyler Palko at the helm, so in a division that's still winnable, this move makes sense. Orton is a veteran with a live arm that gives you a better chance to win immediately. He has good weapons at his disposal (Bowe, Breaston, Baldwin) and could be a decent QB2 option.
11/22/2011 5:50:00 PM
Description: The Denver Broncos waived QB Kyle Orton.
Insight: There are three teams (Houston, Chicago and Kansas City) that are in need of quarterbacks right now... but the team that takes a chance on him will also have to pick up the $2.5 million remaining on his contract. Orton has played in Chicago so that might be a natural fit.
9/13/2011 3:17:00 AM
Description: Broncos QB Kyle Orton was repeatedly booed in the second half of Monday night's 23-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Insight: Orton completed 24-of-46 passes for 304 yards, one touchdown and one interception and added a 13-yard scramble. As it became evident the Broncos were probably not going to win the game, the crowd began to boo and chanted "we want Tebow, we want Tebow."
