2018 Fantasy Outlook
Taylor had a passable rookie year - 10.0 YPC, 7.2 YPT, two TDs on 60 targets out of the slot. After Jimmy Garoppolo took over, Taylor had a 92-yard receiving game and at least two catches each week. The 49ers will get Pierre Garcon back from a neck injury and drafted Dante Pettis in the second round, but the rookie figures to contribute more as a returner initially, leaving Taylor as the probable No. 3 wideout. With a full camp, Garoppolo should build on last year's success in Kyle Shanahan's system, and there should be enough production to go around between the team's various targets. At 5-8, 178, and with meager 4.63 speed, Taylor is strictly an underneath target, relying on quickness and wiggle to get open. Don't expect much in the way of big plays or red-zone work.

Already preparing for 2019

Taylor is excited for a healthy offseason and has already started his training program, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "I think that's just such an advantage," Taylor said, "to be able to only think about building your body up with no limitations going on. I think whenever you have to worry about an injury throughout the offseason there's so much you have to hold back from."
ANALYSIS
Taylor dealt with shoulder and back injuries last offseason, coming off a 2017 rookie campaign in which he caught 43 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns. He took a big step back in 2018 with a 26-215-1 receiving line, averaging just 22.9 snaps in 14 games while sometimes losing work to fellow slot receiver Richie James. The two players figure to battle for playing time in 2019, with new assistant coach Wes Welker brought in to help the development process. Veteran wide receiver Pierre Garcon won't be retained, but Marquise Goodwin (Achilles), Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne are all under team control for at least two more years.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Despite being undersized for a possession receiver (5-8, 181), Taylor proved his naysayers wrong in his senior year at Louisiana Tech by catching 136 passes for a nation-best 1,803 yards to go along with 12 touchdowns. The rookie plays his game best under the coverage on short and quick routes, so he could quickly mesh with Brian Hoyer -- or C.J. Beathard down the road -- if and when he gets a shot to see the field. For now, consider him a developmental player until the depth chart settles around a 49ers receiving corps that is cluttered behind Pierre Garcon.
