Tyrod Taylor reaches agreement on one-year, $12M deal with Texans

Former Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor has reached an agreement on a one-year, $12.5M deal with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact

There’s the official contingency plan for the Texans in case Deshaun Watson decides to hold out or gets traded. It’ll be interesting to see what shakes out on the Watson front in the upcoming weeks leading up to the NFL Draft. Hold on to your hats.

Tyrod Taylor (lung) inactive for Week 7

QB Tyrod Tylor (lung) will not play in Sunday's Week 7 contest against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Taylor was medically cleared to return after missing over a month due to a punctured lung. Justin Herbert is the Chargers' starting QB going forward and has thrived under center. Taylor should not be rostered in any league format.

Tyrod Taylor (lung) has been medically cleared to return

NFL's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor has been medically cleared to resume all football-related activities.

Fantasy Impact

Taylor has been out for about a month after suffering a punctured lung from an injection to treat his injured ribs Week 2 against the Chiefs. Justin Herbert remains the starter, and Taylor should not be rostered at this time.

Tyrod Taylor (lung) inactive for MNF

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor is inactive for Monday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Impact

Taylor is still not ready to back up newly-minted starter Justin Herbert. Taylor has now lost his job due to team doctor error, so it will be interesting to see how the NFLPA proceeds on his behalf. Herbert has been excellent in his time under center and could be poised for a big game against the Saints with Mike Williams back in the lineup, and Saints corner Janoris Jenkins inactive.

Tyrod Taylor (ribs/chest) officially out for week 4

Tyrod Taylor (ribs/chest) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Fantasy Impact

Rookie first-round pick Justin Herbert will make his third start for the Los Angeles Chargers. He has completed 69.5% of his passes with two touchdowns, but he also has been picked off twice. Consider Herbert a low-end QB2 against a tough Tampa Bay defense.
