Trust = spike production for that player


Tyrod Taylor: Taylor only completed 58.3% of his passes for 107 yards and 4.5 yards per pass attempt last week, but he was able to post 19.1 fantasy points due to producing 28 yards and a pair of touchdown runs on the ground. Taylor now has as many rushing touchdowns (three) as passing touchdowns on his limited sample this season. 

The Jets are a team we have we have targeted for streamers if you can get down to Taylor. New York is 28th in points allowed per attempt (0.50) and 29th in passing points allowed per game (17.6) while ranking last in yards allowed per attempt (8.3 Y/A). If you don’t get all the way to Taylor in 1QB formats, he is a matchup-based 2QB option.
