Tyrod Taylor Expected To Be Week 1 Starter

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Tyrod Taylor is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter in 2020, according to The Athletic's Daniel Popper. The Bolts took Oregon QB Justin Herbert with the sixth overall pick in last month's draft, but the Chargers remain high on Taylor, especially since head coach Anthony Lynn has previous experience with Taylor as his signal-caller in Buffalo. The lack of on-field work this spring due to COVID-19 isn't helping Herbert's cause to start right off the bat in his rookie season, either. We could see Herbert on the sidelines much longer than expected in 2020, which is great news for Taylor's undervalued stock as a QB2 with upside in this stacked Chargers offense.

Chargers Bullish On Tyrod Taylor

Los Angeles Chargers general manager Tom Telesco thinks highly of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert, but head coach Anthony Lynn is legitimately bullish on Tyrod Taylor, and possibly for more than one year as the starter in a post-Philip Rivers world. Just because the Chargers believe in Taylor as a starting signal-caller doesn't mean that they won't take Herbert or another QB with the No. 6 overall pick in this month's draft, but Taylor is widely expected to be their starter come Week 1. The Bolts have shown very little interest in signing Cam Newton as a free agent, and Lynn has experience with Taylor as his QB from their time in Buffalo. A dual-threat player with plenty of weapons around him, Taylor could surprise if he's handed the keys.

Tyrod Taylor In Driver's Seat

Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn said that quarterback Tyrod Taylor is "in the driver's seat" for the starting QB gig in 2020, "but nothing is finalized." The Chargers apparently aren't interested in signing Cam Newton, so Taylor should get the nod over Easton Stick, even if the Bolts take a quarterback with the sixth overall pick in this month's draft. Taylor made the Pro Bowl with the Bills in 2015 and has experience with Lynn coaching the offense in Buffalo. LA should be expected to become more of a run-first team if Taylor is running the show, but he could surprise given all the talent around him on offense. He'll have some low-end QB2 appeal in deeper leagues if he's starting the season under center in the post-Philip Rivers era.
