News: Jaguars receiver Taylor Price (foot) had been placed on IR. He has five receptions in six career games, and was a stretch to make the final roster had he remained healthy.
Analysis: Price's future is up in the air as he won't play this season and could have trouble making the roster next season. We wouldn't own him in any league.
News: The Florida Times-Union reports that Jaguars receiver Taylor Price is off crutches and out of his walking boot after he sustained a stress fracture in his left foot in April. The report says Price still has practice squad eligibility, so that could be a way for the Jaguars to retain him, but Price could have interest from other teams if that were the case.
Analysis: Price could compete for a role on offense behind Justin Blackmon, Laurent Robinson, Mike Thomas and Lee Evans, but he has minimal value even if he earns a prominent role. Ignore him in all leagues on Draft Day.
News: Jaguars wide receiver Taylor Price sustained a stress fracture in his left foot Wednesday morning and likely will miss the rest of the offseason, coach Mike Mularkey said. Price, a third-year veteran, joined the Jaguars off waivers from New England last December.
Analysis: Price was a candidate for some playing time, but his availability is now in serious question. Fantasy owners shouldn't consider him going forward.
News: Newly acquired WR Taylor Price caught two of the three passes thrown his way in Week 15 for the Jaguars. He led the team with 39 receiving yards in his first game with the team, which was evident as he ran the wrong route on one of the plays.
Analysis: In Week 16 the Jags face the Titans, a team that has given up 19 receiving touchdowns in 13 games. Taylor was added because the Jaguars are depleted at the receiver position. But that doesn't mean Fantasy owners should scoop him up, as he has minimal value at this time.
News: The Jaguars on Monday afternoon claimed WR Taylor Price off waivers from New England.
Analysis: Price was a third-round selection by the Patriots in the 2010 NFL Draft. There was no immediate word on the roster move the Jaguars will have to make to make room for Price. But he is not worth adding in Fantasy at this time.
News: The Patriots released WR Taylor Price on Saturday. Taylor,a former third-round pick, appeared in three games this year. The team signed C Nick McDonald to take his place on the active roster.
Analysis: Price was a standout in the preseason, but rarely saw the field this season with the Patriots. He actually totaled just three receptions for 41 yards in his two season in New England and should be ignored in all formats, while he is not on a NFL roster.
News: Patriots WR Taylor Price was active for the first time this season in Week 4 against the Raiders. He missed the first three games due to a hamstring injury.
Analysis: Price was a standout in the preseason and could see some passes thrown his way going forward with the way the Patriots love to spread the ball around. Keep an eye on how he is used going forward. But until he proves his worth on the field, continue to ignore Price in the majority of Fantasy leagues.
News: New England WR Taylor Price caught a 50-yard bomb on Thursday night against Jacksonville in the Patriots' first preseason game. Price was targeted seven times, catching five passes for 105 yards. That was good for a 21 yard average. Price also scored a touchdown in New England's 47-12 win.
Analysis: Price got plenty of action with none of the regular starters seeing time on the field. New England's top three -- Chad Ochocinco, Deion Branch and Wes Welker -- were all on the sideline for the Pats. Price had three catches for 41 yards in the season finale last year, but was hoping to make an impact in 2011. While he got noticed on Thursday, he still has a long way to go before he moves up the ladder in New England. Keep an eye on his progress during the preseason, but Price is not a player to take on Draft Day.
News: According to ESPN.com, Patriots WR Taylor Price hopes to make an impact this season. The report says the 2010 third-round draft choice runs well, has solid hands, and good size (6-foot, 205 pounds). Last year, Price was active for just the regular-season finale (three catches, 41 yards). The hope this year is that he breaks through with more consistent playing time. "It was basically a red-shirt year," Price said. "I'm just trying to take everything I learned, in the classroom and on the field, and work on my craft and get into the system and really be a player [in 2011]. I just want to be the best player I can possibly be, so whenever we get back to work, my body is ready to go and I can play right away."
Analysis: The Patriots return their entire receiving corps from last season, with Deion Branch, Wes Welker, Brandon Tate and Julian Edelman topping the depth chart. Matthew Slater and Darnell Jenkins also take reps at the position. Price will be in the mix there, but he has to prove himself first. He has minimal Fantasy value coming into the year and isn't worth drafting in most formats. But if he starts out the year playing well then he could be added off the waiver wire.
News: The Patriots announced Tuesday the signing of third-round draft choice WR Taylor Price. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. Price, from Ohio University, was selected by the Patriots in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft with the 90th selection overall. Price started 38 of 52 games for Ohio and set a school record with 149 receptions. His 2,019 career receiving yards are the second best total in school history. As a senior in 2009, he caught 56 receptions for 784 yards with five touchdowns.
Analysis: Price will compete for playing time with the Patriots this season, but he has minimal Fantasy value. He's not worth drafting in seasonal leagues and might not be worth a pick in rookie-only drafts and keeper formats as well.
News: The Patriots drafted WR Taylor Price in the third round of the NFL Draft at No. 90 overall. Price is 6-foot, 212 pounds and played at Ohio. The Sports Xchange reports the Patriots were the only team to work out Price, who played for a run-oriented team in college.
Analysis: Price will likely see time on special teams for the Patriots and has minimal Fantasy value coming into the season. He's not worth drafting in seasonal leagues and might not be worth a pick in rookie-only drafts and keeper formats as well.
