6. Tyrod Taylor, Cleveland Browns
A lot of people may not have faith in Taylor as the Browns quarterback long term, but we’ll at least have him Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
While it’s not a pristine matchup, Taylor has a knack for racking up the points with his legs.
With his four rushing touchdowns and over 425 rushing yards, Taylor can go from a 10 point game to a high-teens game really quickly.
Taylor has much better options with the Browns than he did with the Buffalo Bills in 2017, too.
Wide receiver Josh Gordon can out-muscle any defender the Steelers throw his way. So, with his running ability in mind, Taylor is far from the worst play in Week 1 at the quarterback position.
5. Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams
Finishing as the QB12 in 2017, Goff enters Week 1 against a very average Raiders secondary.
Yeah, there are standout players in Gareon Conley and Karl Joseph back there, but it’s very “meh” other than that.
Goff has weapons such as running back Todd Gurley and wide receivers Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks at his disposal. This is really a no-brainer. Start Goff against the Raiders.
