Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections

Season Projections
He's the starting signal caller for the Chargers until rookie sixth overall selection Justin Herbert is ready to take the controls. Taylor, a dual-threat journeyman, has compiled a career 23-22-1 mark as a starter, and he led the Bills to the playoffs (2017). Suiting up for the Chargers for the first time this past season, Taylor attempted six passes while backing up Philip Rivers (Colts). The 31-year-old Taylor, considered a serviceable passer with a solid arm, posted a career-best 3,035 passing yards and 20 touchdown strikes versus 10 picks with the Bills (2015). As a starter, however, he has averaged only 199 passing yards and 1.1 touchdown strikes per contest. The strength of Taylor's fantasy value comes from rushing production. He's quick enough to evade pass rushers and more than mobile enough to run for first downs. Taylor racked up top-three rushing production at the position during each of his three seasons in Buffalo (2015-17). He knows Chargers offensive boss Shane Steichen's offense and inherits a nice group of playmakers - Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Hunter Henry and Austin Ekeler - but it's still hard to imagine Taylor compiling big passing stats. He'll also operate behind a line that yielded the 11th-fewest sacks in 2019. Until Herbert takes over, consider Taylor a decent fantasy backup in deeper leagues.

Passing: 4 Yards, 0 TD, 0 INT.
