Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor is in line to be the starting quarterback for the Chargers next season since the team is not expected to sign or acquire a veteran quarterback this offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: The Chargers probably will draft a quarterback this offseason, but Taylor may open the season as a starter. Taylor has had some success during his career and would have some fantasy value because of his ability to run. Fantasy players could consider him a low-end No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor could earn the starting spot for the 2020 season, according to head coach Anthony Lynn Thursday, Feb. 13. 'Tyrod Taylor is a heck of a quarterback,' Lynn told AM 570 LA Sports. 'We couldn't have a better backup right now, and now he has an opportunity to maybe step up into a starting role. I've had Tyrod before (in Buffalo), and I know what this young man brings to the table, in the passing game and the running game.'
Huddle Up: Lynn credited Taylor's ability to take care of the football as a strong point in his game. Taylor will turn 31 years old ahead of the 2020 season and has 54 career touchdown passes against 20 interceptions through 46 starts and 70 total appearances. He rushed for at least 427 yards in each of his three seasons as a starter for the Buffalo Bills and can certainly be a reliable QB1 in fantasy due to his safe floor of production as a result of his contributions on the ground.

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.

Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent QB Robert Griffin III and Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Tyrod Taylor are possible backup options for the Ravens next season, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Harbaugh said the team will be looking to add two quarterbacks this offseason and want the quarterbacks to play a similar style to QB Lamar Jackson.

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.
