Basic Stats Full Player Fantasy Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Taylor opened last season as the Chargers’ starter. He threw for 208 scoreless yards and ran for 7 more in a 16-13 Week 1 win over the Bengals.
  • Just prior to kickoff of Week 2, the Chargers’ team doctor accidentally punctured Taylor’s lung while giving a pain-killing injection. QB Justin Herbert played well in relief and kept the starting job the rest of the season.
  • Taylor’s last and only extensive NFL action came with the Bills from 2015-2017. He averaged 2,952 yards and 17 TDs passing and 525 yards and 4.7 TDs rushing per season. Taylor finished 17th, 15th and 19th among QBs in fantasy points those years.
  • He turns 32 in August.
  • The Texans signed Taylor to a 1-year, $5.5 million contract in free agency.
  • Houston also spent a 3rd-round pick on QB Davis Mills.
  • QB Deshaun Watson’s future with the team is on shaky ground. He requested a trade in January and is likely looking at a suspension after 22 sexual assault claims were filed against him in March.
  • Taylor and Mills will battle for the starting job if Watson isn’t available.
  • Whoever is under center will be working with a shaky pass-catching corps after the Texans lost WR Will Fuller in free agency. Houston’s top 5 WRs figure to be Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Nico Collins, Keke Coutee and Chris Conley. Jordan Akins looks like the top TE.
  • The Texans hired David Culley as their new HC this offseason. Culley retained OC Tim Kelly, though, so the offensive scheme shouldn’t change much.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Taylor’s experience probably makes him the favorite to be Houston’s Week 1 starter over rookie Davis Mills if Deshaun Watson isn’t available. Taylor can provide some fantasy value with his legs, but he’d still be an unexciting option pilioting what figures to be a bad Texans offense. And the team will likely want to get a look at Mills at some point.

Taylor is only worth a look near the end of 2-QB and superflex drafts.

The Texans placed QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) on IR. He'll miss at least the next 3 games -- although the Houston Chronicle reported yesterday that Taylor could miss 4. We're about to get an extended look at 3rd-round rookie QB Davis Mills.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor "could miss 4 weeks" with his hamstring injury, according to the Houston Chronicle. It's the 1st timetable we've seen. It's an unfortunate break for Taylor, who was playing really good ball before going down. QB Davis Mills didn't look ready in relief this past Sunday, completing just 8 of 18 passes for 102 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Now he has a short week to prepare for his 1st start against the Panthers on Thursday night.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) won't play against the Panthers on Thursday night, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Taylor is getting an MRI on that hamstring on Monday but won't be ready on the short turnaround. That puts QB Davis Mills in line to make his 1st start. The rookie went 8-of-18 for 102 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT in today's loss to the Browns.

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor hurt his hamstring early in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Browns and was quickly ruled out for the day. Rookie QB Davis Mills will take over for Houston.

QB Tyrod Taylor has agreed to a 1-year deal with the Texans, according to NFL Network. The contract will pay him $6 million, with a top value of $12.5 million through incentives. Tom Pelissero calls it "similar" to what Cam Newton and Jameis Winston have gotten recently. That range in value says Taylor could wind up as anything from Houston's backup to the fill-in should Deshaun Watson get traded. We'll see where the situation goes from here.
