 Already in a better spot by having Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry to throw to. I would have him higher if I knew for sure he wouldn't be giving the reigns over to Mayfield at some point during the season.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
The quintessential "better in fantasy than real life" player, Bortles has notched QB4, 9, and 13 finishes over the past three seasons. He even swung some leagues for managers bold enough to throw their Molotov cocktails in the air and shout "Bortles!" before tossing him into the starting lineup. Only Todd Gurley recorded more fantasy points from Weeks 12 to 16, so there's a solid chance he out-earns his draft price. On the other hand, he's not that great at actual football, and the Jaguars will gladly relegate him to a gatekeeper role when the game script allows it. They shouldn't throw enough to drag him back into the top 10.It's time to find out how much Buffalo stifled Taylor. Over the last three years, the dual-threat QB has ranked 24, 25, and 25 in pass attempts. Although rarely effective, the Browns aired it out 39 times per contest last year. Taylor also tallied 1,575 rushing yards and a 1.3 INT % over those three seasons, so it's not far-fetched for him to blossom into a legitimate fantasy starter. It's also possible Baker Mayfield replaces him in September. He's ideally someone to carefully monitor on the waiver wire in standard leagues, especially in light of a dislocated pinky suffered in the preseason.

 Would be higher if not for suspicion Mayfield will make starts before year is over; will be a top-15 option many of the weeks he starts
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
While many spend a fortune to acquire Deshaun Watson, many are overlooking the fact that Bortles had "almost" as good of a stretch that Watson did. From Week 13-16 (four games), Bortles threw for 321.3 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game. During Watson's five-game stretch, he averaged 294.4 yards and 3.6 touchdowns per game. The reason people think Watson could be the real-deal is because that's really one of the only sample size we have on him, whereas most "know what they are getting" with Bortles. Is that fair, though, considering he was a top-10 quarterback twice? Bottom line is that Bortles has been really streaky and has shown more bad than good, but the hate on him has gone a bit too far this offseason. With him rushing for at least 310 yards in every season, it's possible that we see him finish inside the top-15 this year, though you don't want to pay for those up-and-downs in his performances.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 overall projection. But if you're one to stream the quarterback position, you can snag Taylor and pair him with Jameis Winston, who returns in Week 4.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
You may want to give up on Bortles, but he has now been a QB1 three consecutive seasons and managed to be the #2 QB over the final five weeks of the season. It is never pretty, but he gets the job done from a production perspective. He is a reliable option 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 will definitely make for a great streamer at times.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
Bortles can have good fantasy days, but he won't be asked to do that much with the defense and running game being the strengths of this offense. His running ability and the fact that he's quarterbacking a winning team means he should be more consistent than his worst games seem to foretell.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.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Weeks 12-17 Bortles was the QB2 in fantasy points scoredOnly thing holding him back from top-20 at the position is that I'm not sure he starts all 16 games.
Staff Rankings
QB List
One of the most frustrating and inconsistent quarterbacks around, Bortles had yet another trademark Bortles year last year, with some great highs, some awful lows, and no consistency to be seen. Bortles did have his lowest interception total in a season, which is good, but likely was a result of the Jaguars' efforts to protect him with a good defense and a good running game, and less a result of his actual skill. Losing Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns certainly isn't going to help his offensive prospects, however the team will still likely have a good defense and run game, and Marqise Lee should be a solid-enough top option for him. Still, I wouldn't expect much more from Bortles than what you've seen in the past-an inconsistent quarterback who will likely have four to six games where he's excellent, you just won't have any idea which games those will be. 
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Bortles was better than expected in the second half of last year but how long will the optimism last?The 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
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
Perennially underrated due to his rushing prowess, I think the Jags are likely to explore QB as early as the first round. 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.
