Trent Taylor
24-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
San Francisco 49ers
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.

Held catchless Sunday

September 17, 2018
Taylor was targeted twice but did not record a catch in Sunday's 30-27 victory over the Lions.
ANALYSIS
The 49ers did most of their damage on the ground Sunday, and Pierre Garcon was the only wideout to record more than one catch. Marquis Goodwin (quad) wasn't able to suit up, but rookie Dante Pettis filled his vacant starting role, which kept Taylor in the slot. Expect the 24-year-old to see higher usage in what should be a more pass-happy game plan against the high-octane Chiefs next week.

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.
