    Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor could consider the Baltimore Ravens a potential landing spot in free agency this offseason, according to ESPN's Jamison Hensley. Taylor made his only Pro Bowl in 2015 when new Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman called the plays with the Buffalo Bills, and Taylor spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with Baltimore before leaving for Buffalo in 2015.

    Huddle Up: With Joe Flacco almost guaranteed to be elsewhere in 2019, the Ravens are going to have to decide if Robert Griffin III is the man they want backing up Lamar Jackson. Taylor didn't play particularly well with the Browns last season, but his game is similar to Jackson's and would allow Baltimore to stick with its game plan if Jackson were to miss time. Taylor will certainly seek out potential starting opportunities elsewhere first, but a reunion with the Ravens makes sense if he doesn't like what the market has to offer.

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (back, concussion) is expected to be available for Week 4's game against the Oakland Raiders. He had been listed as questionable on the injury report.

    Huddle Up: Barring an injury to Baker Mayfield, it's unlikely that we'll see Taylor under center in a Cleveland Browns uniform again. Obviously, he has no fantasy value at this point.

  • Posted: 9/27/2018 9:40am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion, back) cleared the league's concussion protocol Thursday, Sept. 27. However, head coach Hue Jackson said Taylor also is dealing with a back injury that could keep him from serving as the team's No. 2 quarterback in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: It's the Baker Mayfield Show now in Cleveland after the rookie replaced the injured Taylor late in the first half of Week 3. And barring a Mayfield injury, don't plan on seeing Taylor quarterbacking the Browns again.

  • Posted: 9/24/2018 7:41pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) is valued by head coach Hue Jackson and the organization and he won't be traded to another organization. 'He is going to be right here. He is not going anywhere,' Jackson said Monday, Sept. 24. 'I think that is important. Like I said, I think part of (Baker Mayfield) being able to play like he did was because of Tyrod and (Drew Stanton). I do not want to upset that room that way.'

    Huddle Up: Taylor will be a free agent after the 2018 season, and it's possible a team might want his services if injuries occur at the quarterback position after the league. However, Jackson appears to want to keep him around. As long as he is a backup he obviously has no fantasy appeal.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 6:44am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) is expected to clear concussion protocol this week, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Despite this news, we've probably seen the last of Taylor as Cleveland's starting quarterback, barring an injury to Baker Mayfield. Begin scouring the waiver wire immediately if you're still carrying Taylor on your fantasy football roster as a backup.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 9:13pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (concussion) went 4-for-14 for 19 yards in just under a half of action on Thursday, Sept. 20, against the New York Jets. Taylor did carry the ball four times for 22 yards prior to suffering a concussion.

    Huddle Up: You have to think that, barring injury to Baker Mayfield, this is the end of Taylor's abbreviated stint as Cleveland's starter. While he made some plays with his legs, Taylor was pretty bad as a passer in Weeks 1 and 3, making it tough to sell starting him ahead of Mayfield to the fan base. If you're carrying Taylor on your roster as a backup you should start checking the waiver wire for a potential replacement.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 7:09pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (head) was diagnosed with a concussion and will not return to the game in Week 3 against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was not sharp before departing, going 4-of-14 for 19 yards while adding 22 yards on four carries. No. 1 overall draft pick Baker Mayfield came on after Taylor got hurt and will lead the Browns for the remainder of the game.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 1:02pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor went 22-for-30 for 246 yards, one touchdown and one interception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 2. He also rushed for 26 yards on four carries during the game.

    Huddle Up: Taylor improved on his passing numbers from Week 1 but did not have a great performance. He will be facing an improved New York Jets defense in Week 3 and probably should be kept on the bench in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/9/2018 3:46pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor completed 15-of-40 passes for 197 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 1 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers while running for 77 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: Taylor wasn't terribly accurate in his first start as a member of the Cleveland Browns, but he kept the Steelers off balance with his ability to run the ball and he didn't lose, something no Cleveland QB could say at any point last season. Yep, he's 0-0-1 as a Cleveland starter. He'll look for that first elusive win in Week 2 on the road against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 8:14pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor has been 'all in' since joining the team, according to offensive coordinator Todd Haley, and Haley said he believes the best version of Taylor is still to come.

    Huddle Up: Taylor usually avoids mistakes that can take his team out of a game, but he doesn't make a lot of big plays. He has some intriguing weapons around him in Cleveland, but he is still a midrange QB2, at best.

  • Posted: 9/7/2018 4:50pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor is viewed as a major upgrade over what the team has had in previous seasons, and he is the first quarterback in NFL history to attempt at least 300 passes and throw six interceptions or fewer in three straight seasons, 2015-17.

    Huddle Up: Taylor had 16 INTs over the pas three seasons, lowest for any quarterback with a minimum of 30 starts. The Browns were last in the league with a minus-28 turnover ratio, so Taylor makes them better right off the bat. He is still more of a low-end QB2 for fantasy purposes, but he could surprise with weapons like Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon at his disposal.

  • Posted: 8/25/2018 11:12am ET

    Cleveland Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor (finger) is practicing on Saturday, Aug. 25. His left hand is wrapped after suffering a dislocated pinkie finger on his left hand against the Philadelphia Eagles in a preseason game on Thursday, Aug. 23.

    Huddle Up: Taylor appears to be fine and in line to start the regular season opener. He could have a modicum of success with weapons like Jarvis Landry, Carlos Hyde, David Njoku and potentially Josh Gordon at his disposal. Still, he remains more of a low-end QB2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/23/2018 6:18pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor (hand) left the preseason game early Thursday, Aug. 23, because of a left hand injury but was able to return to the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Taylor misses any practice time because of the injury. He will be the starting quarterback for the Browns for at least the beginning of the season and can be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback because of the weapons he has to work with this season.

  • Posted: 8/15/2018 5:53am ET

    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.'

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/9/2018 6:17pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 8/4/2018 7:38am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 7/5/2018 1:25pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 6/17/2018 10:44am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 5/5/2018 9:13am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 4/26/2018 11:40pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 3/22/2018 11:13pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor is not being considered a 'bridge quarterback,' according to head coach Hue Jackson. 'This guy is the starting quarterback on our football team,' Jackson said. 'There are no 'bridge' players. This guy goes out and gets this organization to winning and gets us to the playoffs or whatever all that is, none of you guys would be writing 'bridge' anymore.' General manager John Dorsey added that he wants 'long-term success with Tyrod.'

    Huddle Up: This indicates that Taylor should have plenty of job security, even with the Browns likely to use the No. 1 or No. 4 overall draft pick on a quarterback. And why shouldn't he? Not only did Taylor lead the Bills to their first postseason berth of the millennium, but he did so while registering another solid campaign, as evident in his 89.2 passer rating. He's also one of the better scramblers in the league, having recorded 14 rushing touchdowns over the last three seasons.

  • Posted: 3/15/2018 12:34pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Tyrod Taylor will be the starter this season and he will have no competition, according to head coach Hue Jackson.

    Huddle Up: The question is does Jackson mean with the current roster or until they draft a rookie? Surely Taylor will have competition if/when the Browns draft a top rookie quarterback, but he would probably start the season in that case anyway. Either way, Taylor has some quality weapons on offense and arguably the best running ability among quarterbacks in the NFL. He's a fringe QB1 on his new squad.

  • Posted: 3/14/2018 1:11pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was officially acquired by the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: Taylor has been a solid quarterback over the last few seasons and will have good receivers to work with next season. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues in 2018.

  • Posted: 3/14/2018 1:04pm ET

    Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor was officially traded to the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for a 2018 third-round draft choice.

    Huddle Up: The Bills should be adding a quarterback in free agency or the draft, so it is not known who their starting quarterback will be at this point. Owners in all fantasy leagues probably should avoid the Buffalo quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 3/9/2018 3:12pm ET

    The Buffalo Bills reportedly agreed to trade QB Tyrod Taylor to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a 2018 third-round pick Friday, March 9.

    Huddle Up: The trade leaves only Nathan Peterman on the Bills' quarterback depth chart, suggesting they will be players for a new signal-caller in free agency next week and/or the draft next month. Armed with the 21st and 22nd overall picks, Buffalo could be eyeing a move into the top five or 10 picks to get their guy. While Peterman will have a head start on any competition the Bills bring in, he is far from a lock to start Week 1.

  • Posted: 3/9/2018 3:04pm ET

    The Cleveland Browns reportedly agreed to acquire QB Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a 2018 third-round pick Friday, March 9.

    Huddle Up: The Browns have drastically upgraded their offense in one afternoon, first acquiring Jarvis Landry from the Miami Dolphins before agreeing to this deal. This trade also buys Cleveland some time to bring a rookie quarterback around slowly if it chooses to take one high in the draft or avoid the position if it doesn't like the incoming class. With his ability to run combined with Landry, Josh Gordon, Duke Johnson and David Njoku on the roster, Taylor may be a high-upside, low-end fantasy QB1 in 2018.

  • Posted: 2/22/2018 1:09pm ET

    The Buffalo Bills are not planning to release QB Tyrod Taylor at this time and are open to paying his $6 million roster bonus in March. The team could still try to trade Taylor this offseason depending on what they do at the position.

    Huddle Up: Taylor was benched during the season but regained the job and finished with 2,799 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and four interceptions. He has also rushed for at least 425 yards in each of the last three years with 14 rushing touchdowns during that span. There is a good chance that Taylor starts for a team in 2018 but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.
