    News

    Coach Hue Jackson reiterated Wednesday that Taylor is considered the Browns' starting quarterback, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

    Impact

    Though the Browns used the top overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft to select Baker Mayfield, the team has no plans to rush the rookie into a starting role. With that in mind, Jackson indicated that he doesn't envision Mayfield getting much work with the first-team offense during training camp. That said, Taylor's perch atop the depth chart is not entirely set in stone, with Pat McManamon of ESPN.com noting that the team wouldn't hold Mayfield back if he made a compelling preseason push to supplant Taylor sooner than expected. As long as Taylor leads the Cleveland offense, however, he'll merit fantasy consideration, thanks to his mobility and ability to minimize turnovers. Moreover, assuming wideout Josh Gordon eventually rejoins the team, Taylor should have some intriguing pass-catching options with which to work.
