Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Taylor isn't receiving a lot of attention this season, but there's no reason to believe he's washed up. From 2015-17 in his only full years as a team's starter, Taylor finished as the QB16, QB8, and QB16 respectively. He also averaged 525 rushing yards and 5 rushing TDs per season in that span. He's likely sitting on your waiver wire, and if you're in need of a Week 1 streamer, his matchup with Cincinnati is juicy. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
If we knew we were getting a full year of Tyrod, I'd slide him into my top-15 as a rock solid dual threat option. We don't, though, so he's a late round flier at best. 
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Though Taylor offers some fantasy potential as a runner, his ultra-conservative passing mindset greatly limits his upside and makes him no more than a two-QB league streamer. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Taylor is going to be the starting QB for the first few weeks in LA, at a minimum. With his rushing ability, he may be a streaming candidate right out of the gate. If you don't want to pay up for a QB, Taylor's a perfect target at the end of your drafts.Fitzmagic appears to be back in 2020! I fully expect Tua Tagovailoa to take over this QB job at some point this season, but Fitz is going to have some games where he has streaming appeal this year.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Taylor certainly has the potential to be a viable quarterback option in deeper two-quarterback leagues with a soft early schedule, especially with an improved Chargers offensive line. The problem for Taylor is that Los Angeles is almost certainly going to lean on its strong defense and rely on its running game, which isn't a recipe for fantasy production from a quarterback. Even if he does hold off Justin Herbert for the full season, his likely low pass volume should hold his fantasy value in check. He can be considered a low-end QB2 in most leagues, but he's not the most exciting option.Fitzpatrick is going to start the season at quarterback for the Dolphins, but with Tua Tagovailoa waiting in the wings, it's unclear how long he'll last. Fitzpatrick closed 2019 strong with the Dolphins, and was a top-five fantasy quarterback over the final five weeks. But the Dolphins have perhaps the worst offensive line in football and are unlikely to compete for a playoff spot. He's only worth drafting as a backup in superflex or two-quarterback leagues and, even then, don't expect to be able to roster him past the midpoint of the season.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Due to the preseason being canceled, I expect Taylor to get the starting nod to begin the season. How long that lasts is another story. The Chargers spent the 6th overall pick on Justin Herbert for a reason, to play him. Taylor may have a couple decent weeks to start but I doubt he's starting more than 4-5 games.If it wasn't for COVID, I'm not sure Ryan Fitzpatrick would even make the Dolphins roster but with preseason now canceled, it's hard to believe that Tua will be starting from day 1. That means we could see a few weeks of FitzMagic but don't expect it to last long, Tua will be starting sooner rather than later.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
I'm starting to come around to Tyrod Taylor as the Week 1 starter. If that's the case, history suggests he could be an awesome, though very temporary, fantasy option. Watch this space.It's entirely possible Fitzmagic starts the season as the Miami QB. While I believe Tua will take over sooner rather than later, Fitz does make a nice early streamer if things fall that way.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
 Won't cost more than a last round pick, but has been a Top-10 QB within Chan Gailey's attack before, and finished as Fantasy's QB4 from Week 7 on last season.
