Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins looked better in training camp than RB Marlon Mack, according to beat writer Kevin Bowen.
Huddle Up: He's still more likely to be on special teams than worthwhile on fantasy rosters. However, he should remain on your watch list if you own Jonathan Taylor as a potential handcuff.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins had four carries for 21 yards on Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Green Bay Packers. He also had a 15-yard catch.
Huddle Up: Wilkins' load has dropped from 21 touches in Week 8 to 13, eight, and now five in three subsequent games. It's pretty clear that Taylor and Hines have defined roles, and Wilkins is mostly there in case Taylor can't get going or makes a critical mistake. That's not the type of player you can stick in your lineup.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins carried the ball eight times for 28 yards against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday, Nov. 12.
Huddle Up: After exploding for 113 total yards in Week 8, Wilkins has posted 38 and 28 yards, respectively, in the two subsequent games. Right now Wilkins isn't doing nearly enough to be owned and, from a fantasy perspective, is mostly functioning to undercut Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins rushed 11 times for a team-high 39 yards in Week 9 against the Baltimore Ravens and he added two receptions for minus-1 yard on two targets.
Huddle Up: Wilkins saw 13 total backfield touches to eight for Jonathan Taylor, who had been dealing with an ankle ailment. Even though Wilkins led the Indy backfield, he remains useful only in deeper fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 in Tennessee on Thursday night.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins had a team-high 20 carries for 89 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 at the Detroit Lions on Sunday, Nov. 1. He caught his lone target for 24 yards.
Huddle Up: RB Jonathan Taylor saw 11 carries for 22 yards, Nyheim Hines scored twice as a receiving back, but Wilkins staked his claim for the top fantasy effort on the ground. The Baltimore Ravens are ahead, so temper any expectations you may have about this surprising performance from the veteran.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor will take over as the starting running back following the season-ending injury to Marlon Mack in Week 1, according to head coach Frank Reich, who added Jordan Wilkins will also have a role.
'Jonathan (Taylor) will step into the starting role ... He's ready. Nyheim (Hines) will still be a big part of the offense.'
Huddle Up: Taylor was considered a very good bet to overtake Mack at some point, but it just wasn't supposed to happen in Week 1 or due to a non-contact injury. Either way, Taylor should have a clear path to 15-plus touches every week moving forward in a good offense and behind an offensive line that should be able to open more holes than it did against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1. Fantasy owners who invested a third-round pick in him recently could have a league-winner on their hands.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins is 'not a slam dunk' to make the team in 2020, according to Kevin Bown of 1075 The Fan. Bowen says Wilkins will need to lock down a presence on special teams to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins has a chance to win the No. 4 running back job during training camp but likely would not see much playing time during the regular season, in the opinion of ColtsWire's Kevin Hickey.
