Trent Taylor has been taking snaps at the slot position for the 49ers and Mercury News reporter Cam Inman stated that he is expecting Taylor to be the number one slot option. Taylor was dealing with foot injuries last year, which limited him throughout the 2019 season. (Mecrury News)
The 49ers are likely to start the season without their top receiver Deebo Samuel. The 49ers will need someone else to step up and Taylor may be able to step into that role. San Francisco has a lot of young receivers who are trying to prove their themselves in the NFL, so Taylor will have some competition to start the season. Taylor might start at the slot position, but wait on some clarity before drafting Taylor to any fantasy team.
