Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Are the Texans...good? Tyrod Taylor led this team to an absolute routing of the Jacksonville Jaguars, but we shouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. Urban Meyer seems to be so far ahead of his skis that he doesn't even know he's wearing skis and the Jags defense didn't seem ready to stop anyone. Reality should set back in here for the Texans offense as they go up against the stacked Cleveland Browns defense though and we shouldn't be looking Taylor's way in any format. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
The Cleveland defense goes from facing Patrick Mahomes to facing Taylor. That's like taking Calculus 3 one semester and Basic Algebra the next. But I don't want to keep bashing Taylor. He's a capable NFL backup thrust into a starting role. Besides, Taylor deserves to be celebrated for helping to ruin Urban Meyer's NFL coaching debut. That's something we can all get behind, right? Taylor completed 21 of 33 passes against Urb's Jaguars for 291 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran four times for 40 yards. The Tyrod Taylor fun probably ends there. But hey, we'll always have Week 1.The schedule makers did young Mr. Jones no favors, presenting him with the tough Denver and Washington defenses right out of the gate. Jones acquitted himself reasonably well in the Giants' opener, completing 22 of 37 passes for 267 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. The bad news is that the Giants scored only 13 points, and Jones coughed up another fumble. He's fumbled 30 times in 28 career games, losing 18 of them. (Yikes ... is he eating greasy finger food right before kickoff?) In two 2020 games against Washington, Jones threw for 324 yards and two TDs, though he did have a 74-yard rushing day in the earlier of the two meetings. It's not a very good spot for Jones. He's the QB26 in my rankings this week.

Despite a QB11 finish in Week 1, I wouldn't be so quick to jump on the Taylor bandwagon. He dismantled the Jags, but hey, it's the Jags. This week's matchup will be on the road against a formidable defense which narrowly lost a winnable game in Week 1. If Taylor can come up big here, I might change my tune about his ROS outlook, but until then, I'm tempering expectations.
