View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • 2021 was a truly special breakout year for Taylor (332-1,811-18), fantasy’s RB1 finisher.
  • He ranked as an RB1 in 13 of 17 games. Remarkable.
  • At only 22, he became the youngest RB to record 2,000 scrimmage yards and 20 TDs.
  • He saw a huge 77.3% of the Colts’ backfield carries.
  • He lead the league in red zone carries (85) and goal line carries (41).
  • Taylor ran behind an O-line that ranked a solid 9th in PFF run blocking grade. The key players from the ’21 line return for another season.
  • Taylor ranked 3rd among 19 RBs with 200+ attempts in PFF’s Elusive Rating; T-1st in YPC. He ranked 1st in PFF rushing grade.
  • The 23-year-old enters his 3rd season set for another massive workload. Indy only swapped out insurance back Marlon Mack for Phillip Lindsay this offseason.
  • Nyheim Hines enters year 5 as a change-of-pace/passing down back. While we expect his usage to increase alongside new QB Matt Ryan, Hines ultimately saw just 5.6 touches per game in ’21.
  • Ryan supplies an upgrade over Carson Wentz. And he figures to provide a more steady presence at QB.
  • For his career, Ryan’s targeted RBs at a higher clip than Wentz has. Taylor was an efficienct pass-catcher in ’21 with 10.1 YPC — 2nd most among 35 backs with 40+ targets.
  • Colts HC Frank Reich “would like to alleviate some of the load on [Jonathan] Taylor’s shoulders,” per beat writer George Bremer. (To be clear, these are Bremer's words -- not Reich's.)

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

JT erupted for a massive 2nd-year breakout in 2021. His 357 half-PPR points ranked 2nd most over the past 5 seasons.

Taylor, only 23, is positioned for another massive workload. And the arrival of Matt Ryan gives him a reliable presence under center to help game scripts stay positive. Taylor shouldn't last past the 2nd pick in 1-QB leagues.

Jonathan Taylor, RB IND

4:15pm EST 11/11/22

Jonathan Taylor ready for Week 10

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) put in a full practice on Thursday. He's on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Raiders. The supporting cast lowers Taylor's fantasy ceiling, but he'll be a solid volume- and talent-based starter.

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 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.
