Is he expected to start for the Vikes? If so, how can we expect Mewelde Moore and the other RB's to figure in?

He's the starter as of now. Don't think Moore will factor in too much.. maybe as a receiving back, but this wont hurt Taylor's carries too much.

Dynasty league owners should be pinching themselves while Taylor climbs into a primary running back role in a West Coast offense. We are a long way from August, but it's hard to imagine Taylor slipping out of the top three rounds of fantasy drafts.

Whoever runs behind that revamped blocking scheme should do fairly well (except those two weeks a year against Chicago). Moore is the only threat, but I really only see him spelling Taylor. Taylor has better record of catching the ball too, so he shouldn't hurt too much in PPR leagues. I like Taylor as a 3rd round RB alot.

Not sure what you are talking about...The only starter they lost on offense is Burleson who hardly played last year and they were a decent offense last year. Plus they added one of the best gaurds in the league, and a solid RB, to say the offense is going to be terrible is a bit stupid if you ask me. Regardless, I think Chester could have a solid year, nothing too spectacular though.

marcus robinson, travis taylor, brad johnson. that's a freaking juggernaut. come on. it's tough to have much of a run game when your passing game is that anemic.

It doesn't matter what the passing game is like.

The Vikings have a rediculous O-Line and a very good FB. I'm going to be persuing Taylor very strongly before the season starts. The guy could be a complete stud simply because of how good his offensive line is. (See Shaun Alexander) Brad Johnson will provide enough of a passing game to at least make guys regret stacking the box with safetys and linebackers too much. I think Chester Taylor will have an extremely good year barring any injuries. I mean, if he's getting the rock 20-30 times a game, he will get at least 100 yards and a TD a game assuming Moore doesn't snipe goal-line carries.

Moore has never been known for TDs... so I don't think he'll be taking any of Taylor's TDs away.

I don't see Taylor getting 1600 yards and 16 touchdowns, though. Call me crazy.
