2019 Fantasy Outlook
Taylor took a step back in his sophomore campaign, recording just 215 yards and a touchdown on 16 receptions. The 25-year-old was dealing with a back injury that almost cost him the start of the season, but he was deemed healthy enough to post a couple of decent stat lines as the 49ers' primary slot receiver over the first four weeks of action. Taylor eventually lost playing time to a couple teammates - primarily Richie James in the slot - and saw his role diminish to near nothingness down the stretch. Taylor will look to maintain a slot role on the team with the help of new wide receiver coach Wes Welker, but an August toe injury leaves the 25-year-old in danger of missing Week 1.

Recovering from Jones fracture

Foot
August 16, 2019
Taylor (foot) is using crutches and a walking boot after undergoing surgery for a Jones fracture, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Earlier reports labeled the injury as a broken pinky toe, with the recovery timeline estimated at 4-to-6 weeks. The updated diagnosis involves a longer rehab process, and there's also an elevated risk for complications after Taylor returns to practice and games. Greg Olsen struggled with the same injury the past two seasons, while Julio Jones is one of the better-known success stories, though even he has dealt with on-and-off foot problems since having his initial surgery in 2013.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
Taylor had a passable rookie year - 10.0 YPC, 7.2 YPT, two TDs on 60 targets out of the slot. After Jimmy Garoppolo took over, Taylor had a 92-yard receiving game and at least two catches each week. The 49ers will get Pierre Garcon back from a neck injury and drafted Dante Pettis in the second round, but the rookie figures to contribute more as a returner initially, leaving Taylor as the probable No. 3 wideout. With a full camp, Garoppolo should build on last year's success in Kyle Shanahan's system, and there should be enough production to go around between the team's various targets. At 5-8, 178, and with meager 4.63 speed, Taylor is strictly an underneath target, relying on quickness and wiggle to get open. Don't expect much in the way of big plays or red-zone work.
Despite being undersized for a possession receiver (5-8, 181), Taylor proved his naysayers wrong in his senior year at Louisiana Tech by catching 136 passes for a nation-best 1,803 yards to go along with 12 touchdowns. The rookie plays his game best under the coverage on short and quick routes, so he could quickly mesh with Brian Hoyer -- or C.J. Beathard down the road -- if and when he gets a shot to see the field. For now, consider him a developmental player until the depth chart settles around a 49ers receiving corps that is cluttered behind Pierre Garcon.
