Browns' Tyrod Taylor: Viewed as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Hue Jackson reiterated Wednesday that Taylor is considered the Browns' starting quarterback, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

Though the Browns used the top overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to select Baker Mayfield, the team has no plans to rush the rookie into a starting role. With that in mind, Jackson indicated that he doesn't envision Mayfield getting much work with the first-team offense during training camp. That said, Taylor's perch atop the depth chart is not entirely set in stone, with Pat McManamon of noting that the team wouldn't hold Mayfield back if he made a compelling preseason push to supplant Taylor sooner than expected. As long as Taylor leads the Cleveland offense, however, he'll merit fantasy consideration, thanks to his mobility and ability to minimize turnovers. Moreover, assuming wideout Josh Gordon eventually rejoins the team, Taylor should have some intriguing pass-catching options with which to work.

Browns' Tyrod Taylor: Squaring off against Mayfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Browns coach Hue Jackson still plans for Taylor to enter Week 1 as the starting quarterback, but Jackson did seem to acknowledge the possibility that No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield could make an unexpected push for the job, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "We have a plan and I want to work that plan as much as we can,'' Jackson said. "Now, can a player supersede that? You never know. I haven't had that happen, but right now this team is going to be led by Tyrod Taylor.''

Acquired from the Bills in exchange for a third-round draft pick, Taylor was named as the Browns' 2018 starting quarterback shortly after the trade in mid-March, despite the universal expectation that Cleveland would select a quarterback at No. 1 overall. The team ultimately used that pick on the 23-year-old Mayfield, whose combination of collegiate experience and production is unmatched among recent QB prospects. The decision leaves Taylor in a more precarious spot than if the Browns had drafted Sam Darnold or Josh Allen, though the 28-year-old still figures to have the inside track to a starting job, with Jackson already placing Taylor atop the depth chart for the beginning of training camp. Taylor figures to soak up the vast majority of first-team reps during spring practices, but it won't come as any surprise if Mayfield gets some of those opportunities in August.

Browns' Tyrod Taylor: Confirmed as starting QB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Referencing Taylor, who the Browns recently acquired in a trade with the Bills, coach Hue Jackson confirmed that the 28-year-old is "going to be the starting quarterback (in 2018). There is no competition," Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

For now, Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan remain on the Browns' roster, but it seems likely that the team will add another QB in April's draft, possibly with one of its two first-round picks. Taylor doesn't buy into the notion that he's simply a bridge QB, destined to to helm the offense while the Browns groom their next franchise QB, but that will be the perception if the team does indeed select a high-profile young signal-caller next month. For the foreseeable future, however, Taylor is in line to work with an intriguing collection of pass-catchers, featuring wideouts Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry and Corey Coleman, as well as promising tight end David Njoku and change-of-pace back Duke Johnson. Assuming Taylor clicks with his new teammates, he brings some fantasy upside to the table in 2018, considering the points that he can rack up with his wheels, as well as his tendency to log a low turnover rate.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Shuffling out of Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Taylor will be traded to the Browns in exchange for a third-round draft pick going to the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Adam Schefter is reporting the same deal. It looks like Taylor is on his way to Cleveland, where he'll be throwing to fellow Friday acquisition Jarvis Landry for what's certain to be a new-look team in 2018. It'll be interesting to see what the Browns do with the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks with two major deals out of the way, though it's conceivable they could still draft a top QB and let him get up to speed slowly while Taylor runs the show. The Bills will get pick No. 65 in the draft and currently own six selections out of the draft's first 96 picks.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor: Still in consideration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Brandon Beane reiterated this week that the team has no plans to cut Taylor before he's due a roster bonus March 16, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "Tyrod is on our roster right now and that's the plan," said Beane. "We're just taking it day by day. We're trying to get better everywhere, so we're looking at every position including quarterback, but Tyrod did a lot of good things for us. So I'm not really worried about the (roster) bonus. I see him on our roster right now. Unless something changes he'll be here through that part."

Earlier in the offseason, it seemed the veteran was as good as gone following an up-and-down season, highlighted by some surprise wins that featured some special plays by the mobile quarterback, with other games sprinkled in where he did little with the unexciting offense around him or his limitations as a passer were exposed. But the "Taylor's gone" tune has started to change lately, with one rational line of thinking saying the Bills will keep Taylor yet throw a young stud (the team has two first-round picks) into the mix to work behind him until that player is ready. This all said, the new Buffalo brass has proven in short time that it likes to mess with the recipe, so we also wouldn't rule out the team trading Taylor or making a play for a higher-level guy like Kirk Cousins. In any case, it's looking more like the team isn't going to simply cast him away.
