Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor loaded up on carries in Sunday's narrow loss to the Eagles, rushing 22 times for 84 yards and a TD. He added 3 catches for 10 yards among 4 targets. RB Deon Jackson matched that target count by carried only once. RB Zack Moss added 2 carries for 7 yards. According to Pro Football Focus, Jackson stepped in as the primary back in 2-minute drill situations. That role will pump up a RB's target count. Fewer such situations should shift a bit more work from Jackson to Taylor.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report for Sunday’s game vs. the Raiders. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. The ankle still adds some risk to his fantasy profile, as does a floundering Colts offense. But Taylor should be in for plenty of touches on Sunday as long as that ankle holds up. RB Deon Jackson (knee) is out for Week 10, leaving Jordan Wilkins as Indianapolis’ likely #2 RB.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. That seemingly gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. We'll see what Taylor does over the next couple of days. RB Deon Jackson (knee) did not practice on Wednesday.

Colts RB Deon Jackson gained just 23 yards on 11 carries in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, starting in place of injured RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle). Jackson added 2 receptions for 13 yards on 3 targets. RB Jordan Wilkins followed Jackson with 13 yards on 3 carries but beat him in targets (5), catches (4) and receiving yards (15). RB Phillip Lindsay ran for 2 yards on his lone carry and watched his lone target fall incomplete. We'll see if Taylor can make it back for next Sunday's visit to Las Vegas.

Colts RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for today’s game vs. the Patriots. Indianapolis will roll with RBs Deon Jackson, Phillip Lindsay and Jordan Wilkins.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Patriots. He aggravated that ankle sprain last weekend and didn't practice at all this week. HC Frank Reich said Friday that there are no plans to put Taylor on IR right now but labeled him "week to week." Indianapolis' bye isn't until Week 14. Taylor's absence leaves the Colts with RBs Deon Jackson, Phillip Lindsay and the newly acquired Zack Moss. With Taylor out in Weeks 5 and 6, Jackson totaled 25 carries and 14 targets to Lindsay's 14 carries and 7 targets. Jackson should lead the way this weekend and is a decent RB2 play with 6 teams on bye.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He battled through this injury last week but certainly isn't a lock to play vs. Patriots on Sunday. Check back tomorrow for another update on JT. His absence this weekend would leave Deon Jackson as Indianapolis' likely lead back.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor will not practice today because of the ankle sprain he aggravated in Sunday's loss to the Commanders. Taylor returned to finish that game, so we'd bet on him being ready by this Sunday. But he's certainly no lock. We'd bet on Deon Jackson being the next man up if Taylor can't play, though we'll see how just-acquired Zack Moss factors in.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor carried just 10 times for 58 yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans, his return from a 2-game absence for an ankle sprain. Taylor added 7 catches for 27 yards on 8 targets, ranking 3rd on the team in that category. He ran just 3 more pass routes than Nyheim Hines for the game, according to Pro Football Focus, a significant change from Taylor's last time out. In that loss to Tennessee, Taylor ran 29 routes to Hines' 11. Hines added 5 receptions for 41 yards on 5 targets in Sunday's game and contributed just 2 rushing yards on 4 carries. Deon Jackson got 2 carries for 3 yards. Indy gets a challenging rushing matchup with Washington in Week 8 and then visits New England in Week 9.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. HC Frank Reich confirmed on Friday that Taylor will resume handling the bulk of the backfield work vs. the Titans this weekend. RBs Nyheim Hines (concussion) and Deon Jackson (quad) are also off the final injury report but aren’t viable fantasy plays.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) remained limited on Wednesday. He got in limited practices last Thursday and Friday but missed the Jaguars game. We're guessing Taylor returns for this weekend's game vs. the Titans, but he's certainly not a lock. We'll get another update tomorrow. RBs Nyheim Hines (concussion) and Deon Jackson (quad) put in full practices on Wednesday and should be available this weekend.

Colts RB Deon Jackson was knocked out of Sunday's win over the Jaguars with a quad injury. He racked up 42 yards and a score on the ground plus 10 catches for 79 yards before exiting. Jackson's absence left Phillip Lindsay as Indianapolis' top RB. We'll see if Jackson, Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines are available for Week 7

The Colts have downgraded RBs Jonathan Taylor (ankle) and Nyheim Hines (concussion) to out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. That leaves Deon Jackson as the anticipated starter. He obviously lands in a good situation for touch upside. Jacksonville does rank 9th in Football Outsiders' run-defense DVOA and 7th in overall defensive DVOA, though. So it's not a terrific matchup. Consider Jackson to be a fantasy option if you're in need rather than a player to specifically target.

Colts RB Phillip Lindsay has been elevated from the practice squad. He'll join Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson in Indianapolis' Jonathan Taylor-less backfield vs. the Broncos tonight. We're expecting Hines to take on an increased rushing role and dominate passing-down work. We'll see how the rest of the snaps and touches are divvied between Lindsay and Jackson, but neither guy is a viable fantasy play outside of 1-game DFS contests.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos. He was always a long shot to play on the short week. Taylor's injury reportedly isn't serious, so he should have a shot to return for Week 6. JT's absence in Denver will leave the Colts with RBs Nyheim Hines, Deon Jackson and Phillip Lindsay, who's expected to be elevated from the practice squad. When Taylor missed Week 12 of the 2020 season, Hines played 65% of the offensive snaps and handled 10 carries and 10 targets.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor got his left ankle rolled up on during Sunday's loss to the Titans and "will have tests imminently to make sure there is no major damage," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The schedule will do Taylor no favors, with the Colts taking on the Broncos on Thursday night. We'll update Taylor's status as soon as we know more. If he can't play vs. Denver, Indianapolis would be down to RBs Nyheim Hines, Deon Jackson and D'Vonte Price.

Update: The Colts "fear" a high-ankle sprain for Taylor, according to The Athletic's Zak Keefer.
