Taylor admitted that he has been playing with a fractured jaw since colliding with Peter Crouch earlier this month, reports Sky Sports.

The injury hasn't forced Taylor out yet, and he said it is still painful, but will continue to fight through. Fantasy players shouldn't expect this to impact his performance at this point.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Taylor collected a poor clearance from Fulham and finished clinically, scoring the Hammers' third before halftime.

Today was an explosion of points for Taylor, earning points for the shutout, 90 minutes played, an assist and a goal. He won't do that every week of course, but he's about as cheap as they come with a tag of under five million pounds. If West Ham is playing a comparable team, he'd be a great one or two week pickup that will almost certainly save you a couple million pounds over whoever else you have in the midfield.

Taylor scored in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Blackpool.

Taylor has only two goals on the year for Bolton, but that's not his game. He's a terrific tackler, and a big reason for another successful year at Bolton.

Matty Taylor is incredibly fun to watch, and he gave a huge boost to a Bolton team that needed to put a terrible mid-week loss to Sunderland behind them.
