Browns | Tyrod Taylor locked in as starter

Wed, 15 Aug 2018 05:53:50 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor will be the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Hue Jackson. "I have not changed. I'm not going to change," Jackson said. "Tyrod Taylor's the starting quarterback here, and Baker (Mayfield is) the future of our organization."

Fantasy Tip: Taylor may open the season the starter, but Mayfield had an impressive preseason opener. Time will tell how much of a placeholder Taylor is. He's a QB2 in fantasy.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor perfect in preseason showing

Thu, 09 Aug 2018 18:17:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor completed all five of his passes for 99 yards and a touchdown, en route to posting a perfect 158.3 passer rating in the team's first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 9, versus the New York Giants. He also scrambled once for two yards.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor is going to be under center for the Browns in Week 1 and if he can play like he did in the preseason opener, he should remain there for the duration of the campaign. Don't forget, Taylor was very solid a year ago and lifted Buffalo to its first playoff berth in decades, so certainly don't count him out in terms of fantasy relevancy. At the very least, he could be a nice streaming option on certain weeks.

Browns | Cleveland open to extending Tyrod Taylor's deal

Sat, 04 Aug 2018 07:38:56 -0700

The Cleveland Browns are open to giving a contract extension to QB Tyrod Taylor, who is in the first season of a two-year, $30.5 million deal with the club. "There may come a point where I call his representatives in October and say, 'Let's strike something up,'" general manager John Dorsey said to Kevin Clark of The Ringer. Dorsey went on to say that possible interest in keeping Taylor beyond the 2019 season would not necessarily mean QB Baker Mayfield wasn't pushing him for the starting job. "Nah, let's deal with it when it happens," Dorsey said.

Fantasy Tip: The 30-year-old Taylor will enter the 2018 season as the Browns' starter and has looked impressive in training camp. He will have more receiving weapons to work with in Cleveland than he had in Buffalo and should be viewed as a solid QB2 in most fantasy formats.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor will receive first-team reps

Wed, 25 Jul 2018 12:08:18 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor will receive most of the snaps with the first-team offense during training camp, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: The Browns have consistently said that Taylor will be the starter this season even though they selected Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick. Taylor was a solid quarterback with the Buffalo Bills and will have more weapons to work with in Cleveland. He has a chance to be a solid No. 2 quarterback in deeper leagues.

Browns | WR impressed with Tyrod Taylor

Thu, 05 Jul 2018 13:25:14 -0700

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry said QB Tyrod Taylor was very impressive during offseason workouts and showed good accuracy and leadership during practice. Landry said he believes Taylor will be the starting quarterback this season.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor has been named the starter by Hue Jackson but does have Baker Mayfield behind him on the depth chart. He has played well over the last few seasons and will have a solid receiving corps to work with in 2018. Taylor has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Browns | Baker Mayfield not close to starting yet

Sun, 17 Jun 2018 10:44:31 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield "still has a long way to go" to unseat Tyrod Taylor as the starter, according to Ben Volin of The Boston Globe.

Fantasy Tip: While Taylor has "held up his end of the bargain with not just the way he works but the way he plays and the way he leads," according to head coach Hue Jackson, Mayfield is already stealing second-team snaps away from Drew Stanton. The No. 1 overall pick still seems like a good bet to start at some point in 2018, but it is quite possible his opportunity may not come until the Browns have been eliminated from postseason consideration.

Browns | Tyrod Taylor still starter

Sat, 05 May 2018 09:13:06 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor is still the team's starting quarterback even though they selected QB Baker Mayfield with the first overall pick, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor likely will begin the season as the starting quarterback but could lose the job at some point during the season. Taylor should have a better receiving corps to work with in Cleveland and could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback as long as he is the starter.

Browns | Baker Mayfield unlikely to play in 2018?

Thu, 26 Apr 2018 23:40:12 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is expected to serve as the team's No. 3 quarterback behind veteran QBs Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.

Fantasy Tip: The idea of redshirting Mayfield sounds good in April, but if/when the Browns start racking up the losses or Taylor gets injured we'll see if the team sticks to its plan. Still, the club's obvious desire to let Mayfield sit and learn means he's only of interest in keeper leagues on draft day.

Browns | Cody Kessler could be traded

Tue, 27 Mar 2018 14:50:44 -0700

Cleveland Browns QB Cody Kessler is expected to be on the trading block. Kessler started eight games last year and would be Cleveland's fourth quarterback in addition to Tyrod Taylor, Drew Stanton and a draftee.
