Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran 12 times for 60 yards in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added four receptions for 55 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The rookie's average yards per rush were a season high, as was his total scrimmage yardage total. He will get a much-needed rest in Week 7 before returning to action in Detroit after the bye.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 12 times for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two catches for 17 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: The rookie has found the end zone three times in the past four outings and he has had at least 12 carries in each of the four games since Marlon Mack went down. Taylor remains a strong RB2 or flex fantasy play in most leagues. The Colts host the Bengals in Week 6.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 17 times for 68 yards and caught his only target for 11 yards in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: It's a slightly disappointing effort for Taylor after each of Chicago's first three opponents scored at least one rushing touchdown. However, his fantasy owners can take solace in the fact he continues to see the bulk of the work in the backfield and will remain the centerpiece of the offense. Taylor should be considered more of a high-end RB2 in his Week 5 matchup against the Cleveland Browns before returning to RB1 status in a pair of favorable matchups versus the Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran 13 times for 59 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the New York Jets and he added a three-yard grab on his only target.
Huddle Up: Taylor is the workhorse in Indianapolis right now, but Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines are also in the mix. Treat Taylor as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 4 in Chicago.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed for 101 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Taylor is the clear No. 1 running back with Marlon Mack sidelined and will continue to receive plenty of carries each game. He will be a must-start option next week against the New York Jets.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed nine times for 22 yards and caught all six of his targets for 67 yards in a 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1.
Huddle Up: While Taylor wasn't efficient with his carries, he did lead the backfield in rush attempts while playing a role in the passing game. With Marlon Mack potentially out of the rest of the year, the rookie is positioned for RB2 production.

Indianapolis Colts second-round pick RB Jonathan Taylor is in the best position of drafted running backs to succeed, according to Pro Football Focus' Michael Renner. The team's offensive line is returning all five starters, and the line ranked third in PFF's rankings last season.
Huddle Up: Taylor should split the work with Marlon Mack, and he'll be a hot RB3 option in drafts that could rise higher.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor fumbled 18 times during his three years at Wisconsin, but running backs Tom Rathman said Taylor can correct the problem with better fundamentals.
Huddle Up: Taylor is expected to share playing time with Marlon Mack this season and should receive a decent amount of touches each game. Fantasy players should monitor his play during the preseason, but he should be rostered in all leagues and could be a starting option against certain opponents.
