Titans WR Taywan Taylor’s Usage Could Skyrocket After Rishard Matthews’ Leaves

Taywan Taylor (WR – TEN, 3% owned)

Taylor has already been a featured “Penny Stock” after his 4 catch, 95 yard, 2 TD eruption in Preseason Week 2. With Rishard Matthews walking away from the Titans this week, Taylor may finally see the usage to truly erupt. He’s logged just 34% of snaps thus far, but could see this number skyrocket, affording the explosive weapon more chances to flash his game-changing ability.

In our Matt LaFleur breakdown, we raved about Taylor’s limitless ceiling in the new OC’s screen-heavy, vertical-based attack. This was flashed on his 18-yard catch-and-run TD where he made numerous men miss on his way to the end zone.

Indeed, Taylor’s at the mercy of Marcus Mariota‘s injured arm. This could ultimately play into his favor, with LaFleur dialing up the shorter catch-and-run opportunities in which Taylor thrives. Taylor was extremely explosive in college, with a game very similar to Robert Woods who thrived under LaFleur last season. He has stuttering quicks and is dangerous on the short routes out of the slot, yet can plant-and-go vertically as well. Now, more than ever, LaFleur could undoubtedly capitalize on this versatility, as Taylor thrived on bubble screens, jet sweeps, and designed short YAC plays — all staples in this creative attack.

Moving forward, Taylor could provide a handful of week-winning swings, with season-changing upside if he can carve out a meaningful weekly target share — perfectly plausible with the Tennessee Target Totem Pole more wide-open than ever before.
