RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Taylor is projected to be the Browns' starting nose tackle in 2014. Unless the new coaching regime has a drastic role change planned for the 26-year-old, he likely won't have much IDP value due to a lack of counting stats.
Taylor is a big physical player who will play a major role in the success of the Browns' defense in 2013. He'll be called upon to man the nose guard spot in the newly implemented 3-4 alignment and lead the unit's attempt to curtail the running game. He doesn't produce enough in the counting stats however to be a targeted asset in most IDP fantasy formats.
The Browns first-round pick from a year ago enjoyed a solid rookie campaign in which he started all 16 games, registered 59 tackles, four sacks, and one forced fumble. Taylor was poised to be a nice late-round selection in IDP leagues this season before tearing his pectoral muscle in workouts. His schedule for return is unknown, but he is sure to miss a large portion of the year and at best will be placed on the PUP list to start the season.
