Scouting report

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 13, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 – Stepfan Taylor vs. Atlanta

Stepfan Taylor got some change of pace work against Seattle last week, rushing for 14 yards on five carries. That, and the occasional short yardage touchdown, is about the most you can expect from the former Stanford Cardinal. Taylor will continue to see spot duty behind Andre Ellington, but he’s unlikely to take on a bigger role than a half dozen touches per game or so as long as Ellington is healthy. He’s a handcuff only at this time.

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 12, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 – Stepfan Taylor vs. Seattle
Stepfan Taylor returned from injury last week and wound up with two carries and a reception for a total of 10 yards. He remains the backup and occasional short yardage runner for Arizona, but unless the Cardinals wind up in a lopsided victory, it’s hard to expect him to put up legit fantasy numbers. Leave him on waivers, or carry him as a handcuff to Andre Ellington.

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 8, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 – Stepfan Taylor vs. Philadelphia

Stepfan Taylor had a nice game against the Raiders last week, as he had 12 carries as a change of pace back to Andre Ellington. He ended up with 40 yards on the ground along with a touchdown, and added a pair of receptions for 19 yards and another touchdown as the Cardinals defeated the Raiders.

This week, Taylor has a nice matchup against the Eagles. With a more formidable offense on the other side of the field, we’ll see if the Cardinals run the ball with Taylor as often this week as they did against the Raiders, but Taylor should have room to run against a bottom half Philadelphia run defense if he gets touches. It’s also encouraging to see him get goal line touches. Fantasy owners might want to add him to the back of their rosters, especially in deep leagues, but until we see something more than one game, it’s hard to trust him.

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 7, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 – Stepfan Taylor vs. Oakland

Stepfan Taylor had three carries and 10 yards last week against Washington. He continues to be the backup in Arizona behind Andre Ellington, limiting his value. If Arizona goes up early, it’s possible Taylor sees an increased workload, but that’s too risky of a chance for fantasy owners. Taylor should remain on waivers for the time being.

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 6, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 – Stepfan Taylor vs. Washington

Stepfan Taylor had only one carry last week for six yards, and since Andre Ellington had 16 of the team’s 19 total carries on the day, it seems a stretch to assume that Taylor’s role will expand any time soon. He may get a few more touches per game as the season goes on, but until we see it, there’s no reason to assume that he’s worth adding to fantasy rosters.

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 5, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 – Stepfan Taylor vs. Denver
Stepfan Taylor may get some change of pace work against the Broncos this week, but after having only one carry and two yards against the 49ers in Week 3, it’s hard to imagine he’ll get the kind of workload he’ll need to make any kind of fantasy ripples. He should remain on waivers.

ARI RB Stepfan Taylor - Week 3, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 – Stepfan Taylor vs. San Francisco

Stepfan Taylor didn’t get any touches last week against the Giants and he looks like he’s going to be taking a backseat to Jonathan Dwyer at least for the foreseeable future in the Cardinals backfield. It makes sense to keep on eye on Taylor’s usage in case Ellington’s injury situation comes back and he missed time, but ultimately Taylor shouldn’t be in consideration for a roster spot at this time.


Taylor gets a little boost this week with Dwyer deactivated. Still, Taylor will be behind Ellington in the lineup, which limits his upside. While Taylor now has some level of value, he still isn't worth inserting into your lineup.
