23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
Tennessee Titans
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Selected 72nd overall in last year's draft, Taylor (5-foot-11, 203 pounds) struggled to establish himself as a key part of the Titans offense during his rookie year, ultimately logging less than 10 offensive snaps in seven of his last eight games (including playoffs). However, the Tennessee brass displayed confidence in the team's receiving depth by not adding any other marquee wideouts to the roster this offseason. With Rishard Matthews and Corey Davis atop the depth chart, touches could be volatile on a weekly basis for Taylor, but Eric Decker is no longer around and Taylor is a good bet to see more targets than the 28 he received in 2017. He's best used as a slot receiver, but the Western Kentucky product showed in college that it's a mistake to not try and manufacture touches for him on sweeps and bubble screens. Read Past Outlooks

Quiet in season finale
WRTennessee Titans
December 30, 2018
Taylor hauled in two of his six targets for eight yards in Sunday's 33-17 loss to the Colts.
ANALYSIS
Taylor finished second on the team with six targets but failed to connect efficiently with backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Between his own battle with injury and the absence of Marcus Mariota (elbow), 2018 was largely a lost season for Taylor, though he did double his targets, receptions and receiving yards from his rookie campaign. It certainly appears there is more to be uncovered in Taylor's skill set, however, as he showed flashes of strong play, highlighted by a seven-catch, 77-yard performance in Week 4 against Philadelphia and three-catch, 104-yard showing in Week 13 against the Jets. For a full breakout to occur, the Titans will likely have to get more aggressive through the air, as Taylor will by vying for targets among the likes of Corey Davis, Delanie Walker, Tajae Sharpe and Jonnu Smith in 2019.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
While everyone talks about No. 5 overall pick Corey Davis' gaudy stats at Western Michigan, Taylor's 98 catches for 1,730 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior at Western Kentucky were nothing to sneeze at. The speedy third-rounder's skill set probably translates best to the slot, where free-agent acquisition Eric Decker likely will spend most of his time this season. However, Decker is only playing on a one-year contract and Tennessee moved up 11 spots to grab Taylor, so the team likely expects the rookie to take on a big role no later than 2018.
