Taylor Mays: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)May will provide some depth at a position group that saw both starters -- Nate Allen and Charles Woodson -- suffer an injury in Week 1. He will likely fill a reserve role initially, but will have a chance to see some playing time with just two other safeties on the Raiders' roster.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Mays, a former second-round pick who has started 10 games in five seasons, was released by the Vikings last week. He's one of the NFL's better athletes when it comes to measurables, but he'll likely just compete for a depth role on the Lions. Glover Quin and James Ihedigbo are expected to start at safety, with Isa Abdul-Quddus the likely top backup.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Taylor Mays.
Mays was limited to just eight games last season due to a shoulder injury and still hasn't nabbed an interception in a four-year career that includes 89 tackles (64 solo). Nonetheless, Mays figures to be involved in the Bengals' safety rotation this season, although competition from new signing Daniel Manning could cost him some snaps.
Mays is projected to start at strong safety for Cincinnati this season, but likely will not have much fantasy value, since his impact thus far in the league has been minimal.
The disappointing Mays will be a backup at strong safety for the Bengals.
Mays displayed unexpectedly strong coverage skills during offseason workouts, but still spent most of his time training with the third-string defense before moving up to the second-team by the end of workouts. He won't push Michael Lewis for his starting job this season, but expect Mays to be a starter in 2011.
