Taylor was ruled out of the majority of last season due to an ankle injury, then suffered a dead leg following his return to the first team in this campaign.
The Welsh left-back is slowly getting 'back into the swing of things', though, and will be looking to continue his return to full fitness against Fulham this weekend.
"This season's been good for me so far because I've got back into the swing of things," Taylor told the South Wales Evening Post.
"As for getting back to the player I was before, I think I'll get there probably quicker than expected.
"I expected to play my first football this season, not the end of last season so I'm happy with how everything's going. I feel like I'm getting fitter all the time."
Michael Laudrup's men will be looking to win all three points from their trip to Craven Cottage, as they are just two points better off than Martin Jol's men, who are third from bottom.
The international break has given Swansea the chance to regroup following a sticky start to the season which saw their defence of the Capital One Cup end prematurely following defeat to Birmingham.
Taylor admits juggling Europa League commitments with their domestic schedule has been a strain on the squad and been 'really tough'.
"We've had to deal with the Europa League," he added. "It was disappointing to fall out of the League Cup because it was a competition we were trying to defend, but the Europa League is really, really tough. Make no mistake about it.
"I think people are seeing that after Europa League trips it's difficult.
"You have to get on with it and build a squad that's big enough to cope with it. We have done that, so you have to get on with it and produce results.
"It's more a mental thing. You fly back from Russia, you get back Friday, then you have to switch your mind to Sunday whether you win, lose or draw.
"You could be gutted about the day before. Take the Cardiff game for example - people are still talking about that, but you have to move on because there's another game straightaway.
"Mentally you have to be prepared to put games to one side, learn from them quickly and get ready for the next one."
