Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor caught all three of his targets for 64 yards in Week 16 versus the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Taylor has posted solid totals in each of the Titans' last three home games, but he only has one touchdown on the year and doesn't have enough upside to warrant a spot on redraft fantasy rosters. He is more than talented enough to be Corey Davis' long-term sidekick, but the expected return of Delanie Walker in 2019 figures to keep him off the fantasy radar for the foreseeable future.

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor picked up three receptions for 30 yards on five targets in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills, but he lost a fumble, too.
Huddle Up: Taylor was second on the team in targets and he appears to have risen to No. 2 status in the receiving corps in Nashville. On this day, it didn't mean much, but going forward he could have some fantasy appeal in leagues of 12 or more teams as a WR4 or flex option. The Titans host the Ravens in Week 6.

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor posted seven receptions for a career-high 77 yards on nine targets in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: Taylor has three or more catches in each of his past three outings. With Rishard Matthews apparently out of the way in Nashville, and Delanie Walker also on the shelf, it appears Taylor and Corey Davis are the top two wideouts in the Music City. Check out Taylor as a WR5 in PPR formats with a little upside going forward. The Titans meet the Bills on the road in Week 5.

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor racked up three receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Week 2 against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Taylor did a good job jelling with backup Blaine Gabbert, and the duo probably knew each other well working with the second team during training camp and the preseason. Their familiarity showed. Despite the score, Taylor is still not worth scooping up in most fantasy leagues, especially with a tough trip to Jacksonville looming in Week 3.

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor posted three receptions for 45 yards on four targets in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns.
Huddle Up: Taylor was the most productive wide receiver for Tennessee, but that's not saying much on a day the offense did very little. He remains nothing more than a WR5 heading into Week 9 after the bye.

Tennessee Titans WR Taywan Taylor looks like a perfect fit for the slot receiver, according to beat writer Jim Wyatt. Taylor has already gained the trust of the quarterbacks.
Huddle Up: Taylor has emerged into the WR5 flyer fray. Keep an eye on him in training camp.

Tennessee Titans WR Harry Douglas said he is impressed with how WRs Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor performed during offseason workouts. 'I can tell already they are going to be special. They listen, they go hard, and they both make plays. So it is good when you have young guys who can come in and do those things,' Douglas said.
Huddle Up: Davis likely will be one of the stating receivers for the Titans this season and Taylor has a chance to have a solid role in the passing game. Owners in most leagues should consider Davis a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver, while Taylor could be a No. 5 receiver in deeper leagues.

The Tennessee Titans selected WR Taywan Taylor with the 72nd pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Friday, April 28.
Huddle Up: The Titans keep adding weapons for Marcus Mariota, and Taylor has the ability to play in the slot or outside. Don't count on Taylor helping your fantasy teams in 2017, but he should be stashed in all keeper formats. He has WR2 potential.
