Taylor caught one of two targets for six yards in Sunday's 20-14 win over Denver. Marquise Goodwin (personal) returned to action, but Taylor was able to hang on to the fourth receiver role ahead of Richie James (zero targets). Taylor even took over punt return duties after James fumbled a return for the second straight week. Despite the slight bump in duties, the 24-year-old remains a non-factor in fantasy with just five receptions over the team's last six games.
Taylor brought in his only target for 11 yards in Sunday's 43-16 loss to Seattle. Marquise Goodwin (personal) and Pierre Garcon (knee) remained sidelined, but Taylor still finished fourth in targets to wide receivers for the second consecutive week. It has become apparent that the 24-year-old has fallen out of favor in San Francisco, mitigating his fantasy value heading into a Week 14 matchup with the Broncos.
Taylor brought in his only target for 12 yards in Monday's 27-23 loss to the Giants. Taylor was a healthy scratch last week, but he re-entered the wide receiver rotation with Pierre Garcon (knee) sitting this one out. The 24-year-old started the season as the 49ers' primary slot man, but his recent limited usage indicates that the team is going to give other options a larger look moving forward. Taylor will be off the fantasy radar when San Francisco returns to action Week 13 following its bye.
Taylor (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Thursday versus the Raiders. A back injury has plagued Taylor at times since mid-May and even forced a DNP in a Week 6 visit to Green Bay. In two games in the meantime, he's been sparsely used, turning just five targets into two receptions for 13 yards. Expect Marquise Goodwin, Pierre Garcon (shoulder/knee) and Kendrick Bourne to get the most attention from fill-in starting quarterback Nick Mullens in the passing attack.
Taylor had one catch (two targets) for seven yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona. Pierre Garcon (knee) was unable to suit up Sunday, but Kendrick Bourne was the receiver who benefited most from the veteran's absence. Taylor has logged just one catch in each of his previous two matchups despite serving as the 49ers' primary slot man, making him hard to trust even in a favorable matchup against the Raiders on Thursday.
