Dalton has never finished worse than QB18 through his first seven seasons so it should come as a surprise if it happens that way this year. He is without question among the worst starters in football, but he gets the job done well enough to start most weeks in two-QB leagues.Tyrod has never had weapons like this, yet has always managed to be a sufficient fantasy asset. Feel free to use him until his time as the starter runs out, especially in two-qb leagues. He will go undrafted in most leagues, but makes for a great streamer at times.

Dalton had one of his worst seasons last year, yet still managed a top-20 spot in fantasy. That's not what you want out of a quarterback, but his consistency remains good for 2QB leagues and we've seen that he does have higher upside when his weapons are healthy. If Green, Eifert, Ross, Mixon and Bernard can stay healthy and play well, Dalton will beat this ranking.Taylor ends up with the Browns, but it's not as bad as it sounds. Cleveland has improved its roster and Taylor will have Landry, Gordon, Coleman, Johnson, and Njoku to throw to, and that ws before the 2018 NFL Draft. The Browns drafted Baker Mayfield, but Taylor will be the starter Week 1, and if he can be successful, he will remain there this season.

The Red Rifle has dealt with injuries and bad luck the past two years but can still be a fantasy gem. I just won't be drafting him, is allThe Browns actually have a lot of nice weapons, so a dual threat like Taylor possesses nice upside if he can start hot and stave off Baker Mayfield
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Most find it fun to dog Dalton after his lackluster 2017 campaign, but did you know that he's still yet to finish outside the top-18 fantasy quarterbacks? It's because he's typically healthy, has a solid cast of wide receivers, and has no threat of getting benched. It was his yardage that took the biggest hit in 2017, because his touchdown (25) to interception (12) ratio was actually solid. The Bengals need to inject some youth into the offense, so expect to see Joe Mixon and John Ross a lot more involved in year-two, which could revive Dalton's fantasy status. He's a solid No. 2 quarterback in 2QB leagues. I'm usually a big proponent of drafting Taylor in fantasy football, but this has more to do with him potentially losing the job to Baker Mayfield at some point. If you could guarantee he'd start the entire season, he'd probably rank inside my top 15 quarterbacks. As of now, I'm projecting Mayfield to take over for the final six games, which really hurts Taylor's projection.
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Dalton's rushing production fell off last season but he still tossed 25 TD's in a down year. He's not someone you want to target as your starter, but he's a solid part of a QB tandem or ideal back-up. Taylor can actually approach QB1 numbers with an underrated Cleveland offense, but we can't be sure that No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield won't be installed or taking starts at some point, so Taylor comes with a bit of uncertainty.
Kevin Wheeler

 Only thing holding him back from top-20 at the position is that I'm not sure he starts all 16 games.

 Already in a better spot by having Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry to throw to
