Indianapolis Colts Jonathan Taylor in 2020 became the fifth rookie running back since 2000 to finish his first season with at least 1,100 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns while averaging at least five yards per carry.
Huddle Up: Taylor finished strong with five straight 19-fantasy-point plus games to end the regular season and wound up with the sixth most total PPR points at the position. He's a strong back-end RB1 to consider in drafts this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (shoulder) was limited in practice all week but was removed from the injury report Thursday, Jan. 7.
Huddle Up: The Colts had every reason to keep Taylor off his feet and away from any kind of physical contact this week after giving him 30 carries in Week 17. If the Colts are to upset the Buffalo Bills on Saturday, it will likely be because Taylor had a big hand in it. While Nyheim Hines will mix in and handle a number of snaps on passing downs, the rookie appears primed for another 20 or so touches and is a great option in playoff leagues and/or DFS.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor rushed 18 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he did not have a catch on just one target.
Huddle Up: Taylor has been a solid fantasy option this season, but he has really kicked it into high gear over the past three games with 44 runs, 307 yards and five touchdowns. Rookie wall? What rookie wall? Despite playing more games than he is used to in a single, he has actually gotten stronger as the year has progressed.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor needs to average 80.3 rushing yards over his final three regular-season games to hit 1,000 yards for his rookie season.
Huddle Up: Taylor leads the Colts with 759 rushing yards and six touchdowns with just one fumble lost and 46 first downs on his 168 carries through 12 games. He has emerged as a tremendous RB2 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, and he is a great long-term fantasy keeper, too.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor 'has definitely shown he's capable of being the top dog,' but offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni told reporters Tuesday, Dec. 15, that the Colts will 'continue to ride the hot hand (at running back).'
Huddle Up: Given the adventure that November was for Taylor and his fantasy owners, nothing can be taken for granted in this backfield. With that said, the rookie has been dynamic over the last three contests, rushing for at least 90 yards each time. While Nyheim Hines can be expected to continue mixing in on occasion, the Wisconsin product should now be considered a strong bet to handle at least 15 to 18 touches weekly moving forward. In Week 15, Taylor will face a Houston Texans defense that is surrendering 137.7 rushing yards per game to the running back position alone.

Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor ran for a career-high 150 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries and caught both of his targets for 15 additional yards in Week 14 versus the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Taylor has been showing signs recently of fulfilling the hype he entered this season with, and the patience of his fantasy owners was finally rewarded in a big way against the Raiders. While his offensive line opened up huge holes for him, Taylor also displayed the combination of speed and power that made him a record-setting rusher in college. Taylor has quickly turned the narrative of his season around and can be considered a top-10 lock at his position in Week 15 against the Houston Texans.

Huddle Up: The Colts have unleashed Taylor in his last two games, and the rookie has responded with 35 carries for 181 yards and seven grabs for 68 yards and a score. He now looks like the unquestioned lead back in Indy, making Taylor a RB2 with upside going forward.
