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.
Taylor (foot) practiced fully Wednesday, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
Taylor, who last saw action Nov. 5, is thus poised to play Sunday against the Jets. His production to date has been modest aside from a seven-catch, 77-yard effort in Week 4, so until he starts seeing consistent volume in the Tennessee offense, he's only a fantasy lineup option in the deepest of formats.
Coach Mike Vrabel suggested Tuesday that he's hopeful to get Taylor back in Week 13 against the Jets, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.
After missing the last three games because of a foot issue, Taylor stands a good chance of returning to the fold in Week 13. The second-year wideout hasn't posted particularly big numbers during the 2018 campaign, though he does have a seven-catch, 77-yard effort under his belt from Week 4 versus the Eagles. Cameron Batson saw a corresponding increase in offensive snap count in Taylor's absence, but Batson's playing time should fade once Taylor is officially cleared to return.
