Ravens quarterback Tyrod Taylor was 13-of-23 for 154 yards passing with two touchdowns and no interceptions on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Taylor also ran the ball five times for 27 yards, as Baltimore won 44-16.
The Ravens just signed Joe Flacco to an expensive long-term contract in the offseason, ensuring that the Super Bowl-winning quarterback won't be going anywhere, but Taylor's athleticism could be very intriguing to some other NFL teams looking for a franchise QB.
Fantasy Take: Dual-threat quarterbacks aren't just exciting, they're also a growing trend both on the field and in fantasy leagues. If given the opportunity, it wouldn't be surprising to see Taylor score multiple touchdowns per game. If he has to replace Flacco for any period of time, try to get in on the ground floor and use a roster spot on Taylor immediately.
He is a fascinating project that might actually be turning into a good quarterback.
