Colts RB Zack Moss ran for 74 yards on 15 carries (4.9 per rush) in Sunday's 38-10 loss at the Giants. He clearly led the backfield for the 2nd straight game. RB Jordan Wilkins drew the group's only 2 targets, though, catching both for 14 yards. Moss has averaged 4.3 yards per carry over the past 3 games, following Jonathan Taylor's season-ending injury. He'll close out with an upside matchup against Houston's league-worst RB defense.

The Colts leaned on errant passing of QB Nick Foles, for some reason, despite hanging close with the Chargers into the 2nd half of Monday night's loss. RB Zack Moss got just 7 carries in the 1st half, compared with 18 dropbacks for Foles. Moss averaged 5.3 yards on those attempts, with RB Jordan Wilkins mixing in for a 4-yard run. But Moss got just 5 more carries for the game, finishing with a 12-65 rushing line (5.4 per attempt). Wilkins logged the only other RB carry. RB Deon Jackson drew 3 targets, catching them for 9 yards. Moss and Wilkins garnered a target apiece. It was a puzzling approach with a clearly struggling QB and against what has been a soft run defense most of the year. We'll see whether the Colts try to get Moss going more against the Giants in Week 17. Someone should tell them that the Giants are allowing 5.3 yards per RB rush for the season.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) has been placed on IR, officially ending his 2022 season. RB Jordan Wilkins was signed to the active roster in a corresponding move. Wilkins joins Zack Moss and Deon Jackson in Indianapolis' backfield going forward. See where the Colts RBs sit in the initial Week 16 RB Rankings.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He’s still meeting with doctors, but it’s considered highly unlikely that he’ll play again this season," Rapoport adds. Taylor was bothered by right ankle trouble all season and will end up missing 6 games and most of a 7th. Turning just 24 in January, he's an easy bounce-back candidate in 2023. We'll see what the Colts do at QB. Taylor's absence the rest of this season leaves the backfield to Zack Moss and Deon Jackson. Week 16 brings a solid matchup vs. the Chargers, but a bad Indianapolis offense and uncertain workload split will leave both guys as just RB3 or flex plays.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Colts RB Jonathan Taylor's latest ankle injury is considered "nothing major." Taylor is scheduled for additional testing, though. "And with the Colts 4-9-1 record, it is uncertain when or if he’ll play again this season," Schefter adds. We should learn more about Taylor's rest-of-season outlook over the next few days. The Colts deployed a 2-man committee backfield without Taylor for most of Saturday's loss to the Vikings, with Zack Moss handling 24 carries and 1 target and Deon Jackson tallying 13 carries and 1 target. Both guys will be low-end fantasy options if Taylor misses more time.

Colts RB Zack Moss took advantage of RB Jonathan Taylor leaving Saturday's game early. He racked up 24 carries for 81 yards (3.4 per rush) in the OT loss to the Vikings. Moss also saw his lone target fall incomplete. We'll see about Taylor's status for a Week 16 home date with the Chargers. Moss will be worth grabbing on waivers in many cases ahead of that. RB Deon Jackson ran 2nd against Minnesota, carrying 13 times for 55 yards (4.2 per rush). He caught his lone target for 1 yard.

Colts RB Jonathan Taylor is questionable to return to Saturday's game vs. the Vikings after injuring his right ankle on his 1st touch. That's the same ankle that's given him trouble for much of this season. We'll update his status when we know more. Zack Moss and Deon Jackson are handling backfield duties with Taylor out.

Update: Taylor has been downgraded to out. He finishes with 1 catch for 13 yards.

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 ran healthy in Sunday's win over the Raiders, racking up 147 yards and a TD on 22 carries. That score came from 66 yards and featured Taylor outrunning DBs to close it out. He added 2 catches for 16 yards in a game that found Jordan Wilkins and Zack Moss minimally involved behind him.

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 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.

The Bills are acquiring RB Nyheim Hines from the Colts, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move continues Buffalo's pursuit of an upgrade at receiving back. The timing -- after a solid game from James Cook -- points to the Bills not believing the rookie is ready for a bigger role. Hines brings more proven NFL ability as a runner. He figures to challenge the playing time of RB Devin Singletary as well. It should be an upgrade in opportunity for Hines, who sits just 68th among RBs in opportunity share for his 2022 games with Indy. He garnered a stronger 11.8% target share in his 5 healthy games. Buffalo ranks 5th in the league in pass attempts but just 16th in RB receptions. We'll see whether that shifts at all with Hines around. Hines is signed through 2024 but has 2 cuttable years beyond this one. His arrival hurts the short-term outlook for Cook, though there's a chance Buffalo moves on from Hines after this year. The Bills are sending RB Zack Moss and a conditional 6th-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft to the Colts. Moss has a chance to push past Deon Jackson on the Indy depth chart, but that's far from a sure thing.

Bills rookie RB James Cook played his 2nd most snaps of the season and garnered his 2nd largest touch count in Sunday night's win over the Packers. he ran for 35 yards on 5 carries and caught a 41-yard pass while playing 25% of Buffalo's offensive snaps. The only game that has seen more snaps or touches for Cook was the 41-7 Week 2 win over Tennessee that allowed him to clean up in garbage time. RB Devin Singletary operated as the clear backfield leader, posting a 14-67 rushing line and adding a 16-yard catch while playing nearly 3 times as many snaps as Cook. RB Zack Moss was active but did not see the field. There's room for Cook to pick up some touches over the 2nd half of the season, especially in games that find the Bills jumping to large leads. He also looks like the clear #2 now, should anything happen to Singletary. Cook should be rostered in most fantasy football leagues of 12+ teams. He's available in 74% of ESPN leagues as of this writing.

Bills RB Zack Moss is a healthy scratch for today's game vs. the Chiefs. That leaves just Devin Singletary and James Cook in Buffalo's backfield. We'll see if the Bills load up Singletary as an every-down back or work Cooks in some more. We'd bet on the former.

After dominating backfield time and work the previous 2 games, Bills RB Devin Singletary saw the gap shrink in Sunday's lopsided win over the Steelers. His 30 snaps were just 4 more than the combined total for Zack Moss (16) and James Cook (10). Singletary carried 6 times for 42 yards, compared with 4 carries for Cook and 1 for Moss. He added just 1 catch for 4 yards on 2 targets, running 20 routes vs. 15 combined for Moss and Cook. According to Pro Football Focus, Singletary has played 76.4% of offensive snaps when the Bills are tied for trailing. That has dipped to 51.4% when Buffalo leads. So it appears we should consider Singletary to be at greater risk of losing time when then Bills enter a game as heavy favorites.
