QB7 and QB2 vs. Jets last season

Taylor likely relieved some of the pressure for a QB change in Cleveland when he hooked up with Antonio Callaway for a 42-yard TD late in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. This week he gets a Thursday night matchup with a surprisingly tough Jets D that picked off Matthew Stafford four times in Week 1 and limited Ryan Tannehill to under 200 yards passing in Week 2. Taylor's rushing ability will always give him a high fantasy floor, but he's a mid-range QB2 at best this week.

Tyrod may lose his job sooner than later, but he is still a quality worst-case quarterback play in fantasy each week because of his rushing floor. This week is no exception versus a lackluster Jets defense that should give Tyrod one of his strong performances of the year.
