RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Taylor returns fully recovered from the leg fracture that cut his 2012 season short.

2012

The image of Demaryius Thomas stiff-arming Taylor to the ground on his way to an 80-yard touchdown reception in the 2011 playoffs is hard to forget. Taylor is coming off of the worst season of his career, having recorded just 42 tackles and two interceptions. He could lose some playing time in 2012 to Curtis Brown or Cortez Allen.

2010

Taylor is a terrific, physical corner but has seen a drop in his fantasy stock due to consecutive seasons with no more than 62 tackles. Low tackles and interceptions don't make for a strong IDP candidate. He is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, so 2010 will be an important year for him.

2009

Taylor takes on the oppositionís top wideouts week after week, but that doesnít always translate into prime fantasy numbers. This was the case in 2008 as his 65 tackles (down from 80 in 2007) didnít even crack the top 50 among defensive backs and was his lowest output since becoming a starter in 2005. He should bounce back in 2009, but not necessarily enough to be more than a middle of the pack IDP option.

2008

Taylor showed improvement in his second season as the Steelers' starting cornerback with 79 tackles, a sack and three INTs. His growth should continue in 2008 as he develops into a solid IDP option.

2007

Taylor was beaten into submission by wide receivers after signing a huge contract prior to the start of the 2006 campaign. Pittsburgh is hoping that Taylor simply had an off year and will return to his 2005 form when he defended 23 passes (as compared to 15 in 2006). Taylor has little IDP value because of his hands of stone.

2006

Taylor became the Steelers' shutdown cornerback in 2005. He held Cincinnati standout receiver, Chad Johnson, scoreless in three contests. A big hitter, Taylor intercepted one regular-season pass and two in the post-season. He could easily have finished with another half-dozen picks with better hands. Should he discover how to use his hands, Taylor could become a valuable IDP pick in 2006.

2005

Taylor is at an important juncture in his career. Either he steps up as a starter at cornerback, or is relegated to backup duty. The Steelers used a second-round pick on him in 2003, with the intention of him taking over the starting role in a couple years. That time is now, and it's up to Taylor to prove his wares.
