Chargers HC Anthony Lynn announced Wednesday that QB Tyrod Taylor will start Week 1. It's not a surprise. Even Lynn has presented that as the likely path for a while. But the official announcement makes it a little easier to snag Taylor late in fantasy drafts over the next week and a half. A top-15 fantasy QB through most of his starting stint in Buffalo, Taylor gets a nice opening schedule: strong matchups at Cincinnati in Week 1 and home for Carolina in Week 3, with potential shootouts vs. K.C. (Week 2) and at Tampa Bay (Week 4). We'll see how Taylor fares in that stretch before projecting beyond, but other attractive fantasy matchups await before the Week 10 bye. Although rookie QB Justin Herbert has reportedly shown flashes, it doesn't sound like he's especially close to taking over the gig.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chargers "are not looking to sign a veteran QB, as they move forward with Tyrod Taylor." We'll see if that holds true, given that free agency just opened. We'll also see whether the team goes QB in Round 1 of the draft. Taylor, though, spent 3 years starting for the Bills and opened 2018 as Cleveland's starter before giving way to Baker Mayfield. In his last full starting season -- 2017 -- Taylor graded out 10th among passers, according to Pro Football Focus. He would bring a higher fantasy ceiling than 2019 Philip Rivers provided, primarily because of Taylor's rushing.

QB Tyrod Taylor has inked a 2-year deal with the Chargers. He'll serve as a strong backup to QB Philip Rivers but obviously holds no value in 2019 fantasy football drafts. Taylor will be 31 when this contract expires.

Browns QB Tyrod Taylor left in the 2nd quarter Thursday night’s game against the Jets with a concussion. He has been ruled out and will need to pass through the league protocol before returning. Rookie Baker Mayfield immediately sparked a pass offense that has been struggling under Taylor. This might just remain his job going forward

Browns QB Tyrod Taylor dislocated his left pinkie in Thursday night's preseason game against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That's Taylor's non-throwing hand. And he returned to the meaningless game. We're not expecting this to be an issue by the time Week 1 rolls around but will keep an eye on Taylor.
