Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor is expected to receive interest from the Miami Dolphins during free agency, according to source. One source said Taylor is the team's leading candidate to serve as a bridge quarterback in 2019.
Huddle Up: Taylor lost his starting job this past season but has played well at times over the last few seasons. His ability to run helps his fantasy value, but he should only be considered a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for the Dolphins.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
