Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) owners love bargains. If you can save money on a quarterback and have confidence in him, you're really ahead of the game.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor is currently sitting at minimum price on most sites and he will get the start for Week 1. What's more, he'll get a great matchup against the Indianapolis Colts at home on Sept. 13. Taylor is a mobile quarterback and should accumulate plenty of fantasy points.

Fantasy impact: The value is almost too high to not play him in cash games. Of course, most people will be on Tyrod for tournaments, so it might be better to go against the grain, which is always dangerous.
