This time last year, Carr was the fourth quarterback off the board. He struggled through injuries last season and finished as the QB21. In 2016, however, he was a top 10 QB so you'd have to think it will end up somewhere in between, making him merely a streamer for the time being.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.

I expect this team to run the ball a lot and believe their passing offense took a hit by replacing Michael Crabtree with Jordy Nelson.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 Roberts

Carr is talented and Raiders loaded up for him to get even better. I'm just not sure his fantasy production will ever align with his hype, thoughThe 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
After trending upward his first couple seasons, Carr hit a bump in the road in 2017 when he finished as the QB19. He did gain both Jordy Nelson and Martavis Bryant this offseason, but he also lost his trusted red zone target in Michael Crabtree. New head coach John Gruden has talked about running the ball a lot more, which would obviously have a negative impact on Carr's overall potential. Did you know that in 9-of-15 games in 2017, Carr finished with fewer than 14.0 fantasy points? That's not great. He's a streamer and one who I can't see a whole lot of upside with. 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

Carr was a bust last season and until we have a better idea of what kind of offensive gameplan Jon Gruden intends to trot out, Carr is better suited as a 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.
Rich Piazza
Fantasy Shed
 Already in a better spot by having Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry to throw to
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
There is no reason Carr should have struggled the way he did in 2017 and I think new head coach Jon Gruden and new OC Greg Olson should help Carr have a rebound season in 2018.
