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

Paces pass catchers in win
WRTennessee Titans
December 6, 2018
Taylor brought in six of seven targets for 59 yards in the Titans' 30-9 win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Taylor paced the Titans in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, although it was the running game and Derrick Henry that took center stage on Thursday. Taylor has provided reason for optimism with his play in his two games since returning from a foot injury, bringing in nine of 12 targets for 163 yards over that span. The speedy second-year wideout will look to maintain his momentum against the Giants in a Week 15 interconference showdown.

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.
