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
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. 
Raju Byfield

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 startsChampionship lottery ticket if/when he is named starter
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
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.If Jackson ends up getting the Ravens job at some point this year, he would be an immediate top 15 fantasy QB with upside for much more. His passing may not be ready, but his legs likely have him above even Cam Newton and older dual-threat QBs like RG3 and Vince Young.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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. Some are expecting Jackson to get a shot by mid-season, though I'm not one of them. Joe Flacco has been an untouchable for so long, they aren't going to simply go away from him. While yes, they did draft Jackson, he wasn't valued more than Hayden Hurst, who they took with their first-round pick. I think they give Flacco this full season before moving on, barring a major disaster.
Staff Rankings
QB List
 The Ravens really like Jackson, he's been impressing in camp, and as I mentioned earlier, Joe Flacco is getting worse quickly. This team is built to contend, signing three quality wide receivers to go with breakout start running back Alex Collins and a defense that was among the best in the NFL last year. If Joe Flacco is the thing that keeps them from contending, he'll be gone and Jackson will be in. Jackson has the potential to be a dynamic quarterback in the NFL, and he's in a good situation in Baltimore, as he'll be with offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, who coached Michael Vick, and assistant coach Greg Roman, who coached Colin Kaepernick. If any offensive coaching staff is prepared to create an offense for a mobile quarterback like Jackson, it's the Ravens, and if he gets the starting job at some point this season, there could be a lot of fantasy points to be had.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
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 MayfieldJackson is a very interesting fantasy sleeper if he somehow unseats Flacco. I just don't know if that happens in year one
Jody Smith
FantasyPros
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. Jackson could see a difficult transition and needs an offense to be entirely be built around his intriguing offense. If Jackson is thrust into action in 2018 in Baltimore's current offense, he'll struggle. But, if Joe Flacco goes down and the Ravens are able to alter on the go as Bill O'Brien did last year in Houston, Jackson has the kind of elite skill set to take the league by storm.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
Only thing holding him back from top-20 at the position is that I'm not sure he starts all 16 games.
