Taylor collected both of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's season-ending victory over the Rams.
The 5-foot-8 rookie spent the majority of the season serving as the 49ers' slot man, totaling 430 receiving yards on 43 receptions with a pair of touchdowns. It was tough to trust Taylor in fantasy outside of deep PPR formats with such low totals in an offense that struggled pass the ball for the majority of the season. If the 49ers make no additions to their receiving corps this offseason -- which would be a surprise -- Taylor would project to man the slot again next season behind a presumably healthy Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin.
Taylor (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Taylor has been banged up throughout much of November and December, but he'll finish his rookie season having missed just one game. He's been efficient in catching 41 of 58 targets (70.7 percent), albeit for just 9.8 yards per reception with a pair of touchdown. Taylor has landed between three and six targets in each of Jimmy Garoppolo's four starts.
Taylor (shoulder) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor played through the same injury in Sunday's 44-33 win over the Jaguars, catching three of four targets for 19 yards and a touchdown. While he's been efficient on a per-target basis since Jimmy Garoppolo took over at quarterback, Taylor is still getting limited volume with most of his chances coming on short passes. The rookie slot receiver has caught 15 of 18 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown in four Garoppolo starts.
Taylor caught three of his four targets for 19 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 44-33 win over the Jaguars.
Taylor's yardage totals have come back down to earth since his Week 12 explosion, as he's tallied just 70 yards on nine receptions over his last three games. Sunday's five-yard score salvaged what would have been a pedestrian fantasy day. All of the 49ers' pass catchers have received a boost in point potential since Jimmy Garoppolo took over under center, but it would be tough to recommend the 49ers' rookie slot man in a Week 17 matchup, where he will be facing the Rams' talented nickel corner Nickell Robey-Coleman.
Taylor (shoulder) isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor came out of last week's 25-23 win over the Titans with a minor shoulder injury, but it didn't stop him from catching four of five targets for 40 yards. While efficient with his limited workload since Jimmy Garoppolo took over at quarterback, Taylor played less than half of the snaps on offense each of the past three weeks. The rookie will have his hands full against the Jacksonville secondary this Sunday.
