Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (chest) will remain the team's starting quarterback, according to head coach Anthony Lynn, provided that Taylor is '100 percent, ready to go.'
Huddle Up: Despite what Lynn said, it sure feels like Taylor's days as QB1 is numbered. Taylor didn't look good in Week 1 against a Bengals defense that got rolled over by the Browns just a few days later, while Justin Herbert threw for 300-plus yards against the defending Super Bowl champions.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (chest) injured himself during pregame warmups before the Week 2 game against the Kansas City Chiefs and he was downgraded from questionable to out during the game. QB Justin Herbert made his first NFL start in Taylor's absence.
Huddle Up: Herbert is playing very well in Taylor's stead, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the rookie play in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers barring a disastrous second half. That's not good if you depend on Taylor for fantasy purposes, particularly in leagues starting two quarterbacks.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Taylor threw for 208 yards in the Week 1 game and was limited to only eight rushing yards on seven attempts. He probably will have to throw more this week in order to try to match the Kansas City Chiefs on the scoreboard but should only be a starting option in two-quarterback leagues.

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson (quad) did not practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Week 2 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. TE Donald Parham (illness) returned to a full practice Friday, Sept. 18, and has been removed from the injury report. DE Joey Bosa (triceps), CB Casey Hayward (knee), OG Trai Turner (knee), WR Mike Williams (shoulder) and QB Tyrod Taylor (ribs) also practiced in full Friday and no longer appear on the injury report.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor completed 16 of 30 passes for 208 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 1. He also gained seven yards on six runs.
Huddle Up: Surrounded by talented playmakers and facing the NFL's worst team from 2019, Taylor could hardly have been less impressive in a game where the Chargers were lucky to escape with a win. Everyone knows he's only keeping the position warm for Justin Herbert, which is the same role he filled for Baker Mayfield in Cleveland in 2018. That year he gave way to Mayfield in Week 3. It wouldn't be shocking to see something similar in 2020.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 11, and is not on the injury report for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Taylor is a starting quarterback for the first time in several seasons and should have a favorable matchup this week. He should be a starting option in two quarterback leagues and could also be a low-end No. 1 quarterback in deeper leagues.
Posted: 9/09/2020 10:44 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor (calf) was listed as a full participant in the practice report for Wednesday, Sept. 9.
Huddle Up: Taylor doesn't appear to be at risk of missing Week 1. He'll be a mid-tier QB2 option against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor will enter the season as the team's starting quarterback.
Huddle Up: Taylor has played well in the past and should keep the starting job for most of the season even though Justin Herbert is on the roster. He can be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted: 7/29/2020 11:20 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor likely will be the No. 1 quarterback when practices start, according to head coach Anthony Lynn.
Huddle Up: Taylor is competing with Justin Herbert for the starting job but should have an advantage since he has played in the NFL and Herbert was not able to practice this offseason. He had some success as a starter a few years ago but should only be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he wins the job.
Posted: 5/12/2020 7:50 pm UTC
Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor will hold onto the starting job for the entirety of the 2020 season, according to Michael Silver of NFL Network Tuesday, May 12.
Huddle Up: Taylor appeared in eight games last season but didn't make a single start. He totaled 1,575 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns across 43 starts for the Buffalo Bills from 2015-17, and his rushing abilities provide a high fantasy floor of production. He'll be drafted as a mid-range QB2, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him finish as a low-end QB1 if able to hold off rookie Justin Herbert all season.
