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

1:30pm EDT 10/5/22

Taylor OUT for Week 5

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 HC Frank Reich isn't ruling RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) out for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos just yet. Taylor is hoping to go through pregame warmups before making the final call. "You want to use as much time as possible to see," Taylor said. "On a short week you have to use all the time that you have." We'll see how Indianapolis lists him on tomorrow's final injury report.
