Summary

With rookie Justin Herbert on board, Taylor may be no more than a bridge quarterback for part of 2020. But while on the field, he'll carry high-end QB2 upside as a dual threat. Taylor was, after all, a solid passer for three years in Buffalo. He's never been afraid to push the ball downfield, and with strong efficiency. Taylor actually sits top-20 all-time in adjusted yards per attempt, with 54 touchdowns to just 20 interceptions. Considering his rushing production (46 yards per start), he'll likely be a high-upside streamer for as long as the team calls on him. There's just not enough clarity here to invest a QB2 pick in most fantasy drafts. Herbert could move into the lineup at any time, and it's worth noting that Taylor was extremely shaky in this same role in Cleveland in 2018. (May 2)
