Taylor hauled in two of his six targets for eight yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts. Taylor finished second on the team with six targets but failed to connect efficiently with backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Between his own battle with injury and the absence of Marcus Mariota (elbow), 2018 was largely a lost season for Taylor, though he did double his targets, receptions and receiving yards from his rookie campaign. It certainly appears there is more to be uncovered in Taylor's skillset, however, as he showed flashes of strong play, highlighted by a seven catch, 77-yard performance in Week 4 against Philadelphia and three catch, 104-yard showing in Week 13 against the Jets. For a full break-out to occur, the Titans' will likely have to get more aggressive through the air, as Taylor will by vying for targets among the likes of Corey Davis, Delanie Walker, Tajae Sharpe and Jonnu Smith in 2019.
Taylor converted all three of his targets for 64 yards in Saturday's 25-16 win over Washington. Taylor didn't command a notable share of targets, but had a 35-yard reception that helped the Titans drive down the field for the game-winning score. He has now quietly led the team in receiving yards for three of the past four weeks, highlighted by a 104-yard performance in Week 13 against the Jets. Though the second-year pro has delivered only sporadic production, he appears poised to end the season strong and will likely earn some offseason hype heading into the 2019 season.
Taylor caught two his five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 17-0 win over the Giants. Taylor finished second on the team with five targets, but failed to continue his two-game run of solid performances. The Titans' passing attack was dampened by rain, though his poor performance is reminiscent of letdowns earlier in the season. Due to his inconsistency -- he has five games with two or fewer catches -- Taylor is a deep-league option only.
Taylor brought in six of seven targets for 59 yards in the Titans' 30-9 win over the Jaguars on Thursday. Taylor paced the Titans in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, although it was the running game and Derrick Henry that took center stage on Thursday. Taylor has provided reason for optimism with his play in his two games since returning from a foot injury, bringing in nine of 12 targets for 163 yards over that span. The speedy second-year wideout will look to maintain his momentum against the Giants in a Week 15 interconference showdown.
Taylor hauled in three of his five targets for 104 yards in Sunday's 26-22 win over the Jets. Taylor participated in game action for the first time since Week 9 and displayed plenty of big-play ability. He was quiet for much of the game but came up with a 44-yard reception on the Titans' first drive of the fourth quarter and followed that up with a 55-yard reception before being hauled down 10 yards shy of the end zone. However, Taylor isn't likely to see a high number of targets for the remainder of the season and entered Week 13 averaging only 10.2 yards per catch.
