Browns | WR impressed with Tyrod Taylor

Thu, 05 Jul 2018 13:25:14 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry said QB Tyrod Taylor was very impressive during offseason workouts and showed good accuracy and leadership during practice. Landry said he believes Taylor will be the starting quarterback this season.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been named the starter by Hue Jackson but does have Baker Mayfield behind him on the depth chart. He has played well over the last few seasons and will have a solid receiving corps to work with in 2018. Taylor has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Browns | Baker Mayfield not close to starting yet

Sun, 17 Jun 2018 10:44:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield "still has a long way to go" to unseat Tyrod Taylor as the starter, according to Ben Volin of The Boston Globe.

Fantasy Tip: While Taylor has "held up his end of the bargain with not just the way he works but the way he plays and the way he leads," according to head coach Hue Jackson, Mayfield is already stealing second-team snaps away from Drew Stanton. The No. 1 overall pick still seems like a good bet to start at some point in 2018, but it is quite possible his opportunity may not come until the Browns have been eliminated from postseason consideration.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor still starter

Sat, 05 May 2018 09:13:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor is still the team's starting quarterback even though they selected QB Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor likely will begin the season as the starting quarterback but could lose the job at some point during the season. Taylor should have a better receiving corps to work with in Cleveland and could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback as long as he is the starter.

Browns | Baker Mayfield unlikely to play in 2018?

Thu, 26 Apr 2018 23:40:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is expected to serve as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind veteran QBs Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Fantasy Tip: The idea of redshirting Mayfield sounds good in April, but if/when the Browns start racking up the losses or Taylor gets injured we'll see if the team sticks to its plan. Still, the club's obvious desire to let Mayfield sit and learn means he's only of interest in keeper leagues on draft day.

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 14:50:44 -0700

Browns | Tyrod Taylor not a 'bridge quarterback'

Thu, 22 Mar 2018 23:13:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor is not being considered a "bridge quarterback," according to head coach Hue Jackson. "This guy is the starting quarterback on our football team," Jackson said. "There are no 'bridge' players. This guy goes out and gets this organization to winning and gets us to the playoffs or whatever all that is, none of you guys would be writing 'bridge' anymore." General manager John Dorsey added that he wants "long-term success with Tyrod."

Fantasy Tip: This indicates that Taylor should have plenty of job security, even with the Browns likely to use the No. 1 or No. 4 overall draft pick on a quarterback. And why shouldn't he? Not only did Taylor lead the Bills to their first postseason berth of the millennium, but he did so while registering another solid campaign, as evident in his 89.2 passer rating. He's also one of the better scramblers in the league, having recorded 14 rushing touchdowns over the last three seasons.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor will start

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 12:34:10 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor will be the starter this season and he will have no competition, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: The question is does Jackson mean with the current roster or until they draft a rookie? Surely Taylor will have competition if/when the Browns draft a top rookie quarterback, but he would probably start the season in that case anyway. Either way, Taylor has some quality weapons on offense and arguably the best running ability among quarterbacks in the NFL. He's a fringe QB1 on his new squad.

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 13:11:49 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was officially acquired by the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2018 third-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been a solid quarterback over the last few seasons and will have good receivers to work with next season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues in 2018.

Bills | Tyrod Taylor officially traded

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 13:04:27 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was officially traded to the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2018 third-round draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills should be adding a quarterback in free agency or the draft, so it is not known who their starting quarterback will be at this point. Owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Buffalo quarterback situation.
