Taylor and the 49ers agreed to terms on a one-year contract Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Taylor spent the last four seasons in Green Bay, suiting up for 34 regular-season games from 2021-23. In that span he largely contributed on special teams before taking on an increased depth role on offense in 2023, when he rushed a career-high 32 times for 141 yards in 11 appearances. Now, Taylor will compete to secure a depth role behind Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason.

Finishes fourth on depth chart

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-22

Taylor had 32 carries for 141 yards and 11 receptions for 49 yards over 11 games in the 2023 season.

Taylor had easily his most productive campaign as a professional, as he set career highs nearly across the board and ran for a respectable 4.4 YPC. Taylor has been a trusted back for the Packers since 2021, but he spent the early portion of the season on the practice squad and was even waived before being brought back in late November. There's a chance he could return to Green Bay for a fourth go-around, but he ended the season fourth on the depth chart, so it would not be surprising if the Packers opt to go in a different direction.

Relegated to third string

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-15

Wilson had three carries for six yards in Sunday's 48-32 victory over the Cowboys.

Backfield mate AJ Dillon (thumb/neck) did not suit up Sunday, but it was Emanuel Wilson rather than Taylor who worked as the backup behind starter Aaron Jones. It looks like Wilson will be next in line for touches if Dillon misses another game, but Green Bay could turn to Taylor more frequently against the 49ers, as he has earned more trust than his counterpart in pass protection.

Takes eight carries late

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-01

Taylor had eight carries for 30 yards in Sunday's 33-10 victory over the Vikings.

The 30 yards tied a season high for Taylor, who finished second among Packers running backs in snaps, yardage and carries. All of his totes came in the fourth quarter, though, after fellow running back left with a stinger and the game had essentially been decided. Taylor remains third on the depth chart at his position, but he could be pressed into the backup role behind Aaron Jones if Dillon is unable to play in Week 18 against the Bears.

Four touches in Week 16

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Taylor had three carries for four yards and one reception for minus-1 yard in Sunday's 33-30 victory over the Panthers.

Taylor tallied multiple touches for the fourth time in five games, but with both Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon suiting up in the same game for the first time since Week 11, he was relegated to the third spot on the depth chart. If both of his fellow running backs are able to go again in Week 17, expect Taylor to wind up in a similar role.

Limited impact in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Taylor had one carry for six yards and two receptions for minus-four yards in Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

With AJ Dillon (thumb) sidelined Taylor worked as the backup behind Aaron Jones, and he played 26 snaps compared to the 29 Jones received. However, Taylor only tallied three touches while Jones finished with 17. The Packers used a similar distribution in recent weeks when Jones was sidelined and Dillon wasn't, so there is little reason to expect much from Taylor -- he has not recorded more than six touches in a game this season -- unless both of his fellow running backs are unavailable.

Efficient with six touches Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-11

Taylor rushed four times for 30 yards and brought in both targets for 22 yards in the Packers' 24-22 loss to the Giants on Monday night.

The reserve back once again served as the No. 2 option in the Packers backfield with Aaron Jones (knee) sidelined, and Taylor continued to impress with limited touches. The back generated a bulk of his production on two plays, recording a 14-yard run and a 16-yard catch. The third-year back could once again serve as A.J. Dillon's backup in Week 15 versus the Buccaneers depending on Jones' status, and with Dillon struggling with efficiency on a near every-week basis, Taylor could potentially earn more opportunity against Tampa Bay.

Breaks long run in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-05

Taylor had two carries for 29 yards in Sunday's 27-19 victory over the Chiefs.

Taylor worked as the backup running back for a second straight week with Aaron Jones (knee) out again, but the Packers opted to lean on AJ Dillon, who outsnapped Taylor two to one and recorded 19 touches to Taylor's two. It's not yet known if Jones will return for Week 14, but even if he remains sidelined, it's unlikely Taylor's role will change much.

Works as backup in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-24

Taylor had three carries for 11 yards and one reception for four yards in Thursday's 29-22 victory over the Lions.

With top running back Aaron Jones (knee) out for Week 12, Taylor operated as the backup behind AJ Dillon. Taylor and Dillon nearly split the snaps down the middle, but Dillon dominated the touches, recording 17 of them to Taylor's four. Taylor -- sandwiched around a stint on the practice squad with New England -- has made five appearances for the Packers this season, but he has not accumulated more than 29 yards from scrimmage in any of them. It's unclear if Jones will miss more time, but even if he does it will be tough to trust Taylor in fantasy lineups.
