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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Only thing holding him back from top-20 at the position is that I'm not sure he starts all 16 games.

Already in a better spot by having Josh Gordon and Jarvis Landry to throw to
