San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (foot) passed his physical and is healthy heading into training camp.
The Athletic's Matt Barrows believes that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor is the favorite to finish third in receptions in 2020 behind tight end George Kittle and receiver Deebo Samuel. Taylor missed the entire 2019 campaign with a Jones fracture in his foot, which is the same injury that Samuel is recovering from right now. The 26-year-old has 69 receptions for 645 yards and three touchdowns in 29 games over his two seasons in San Francisco, but he'll have the opportunity to carve out a starting role this year, especially if Samuel isn't ready for Week 1. The 49ers apparently expect Taylor to be a big part of the offense, too, but fantasy owners will want to see it before they believe it. Rookie Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, Jalen Hurd, Dante Pettis and Richie James will also be fighting for playing time.
San Francisco 49ers WR Trent Taylor (foot) has been working out with QB Jimmy Garoppolo this offseason and said he is able to run routes and cut on his foot.
Fantasy Spin: Taylor missed the entire 2019 season because of the injury and may have to compete for the roster spot during training camp. He likely will be used as a slot receiver if he makes the team but may not have much fantasy value.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Trent Taylor (foot) has been sprinting, cutting and catching passes from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo while the team waits for the green light to return to their practice facilities. Taylor missed all of 2019 with a foot injury, but he's been part of a group of receivers running routes for Garoppolo in the Bay Area in recent weeks. Others include Jalen Hurd, Shawn Poindexter, Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne. Despite missing all of last year, Taylor could be the team's slot man if he proves his health this summer. While he might not be quite ready for football action at the moment, there's still time for him to get up to speed. He'll be a post-injury sleeper late in deep PPR leagues.
